Recipe for sensitive cats

Cats suffering from food intolerance need special feeding to find out the triggers of the complaints. With this type of feeding, the number of foodstuffs is reduced to a minimum at the beginning.

You feed this self-prepared diet for at least 8 weeks. Your cuddly tiger will only be fed one type of meat that has ideally never been eaten before (both as their main food and as a snack). If the symptoms have improved after 8 weeks, this basic component should be supplemented with a suitable mineral powder, fibre and valuable oils. Meat alone does not contain all the important minerals and vitamins your cat needs on a permanent basis.

To supplement the missing minerals and vitamins, add the mineral powder Vitamin Optimix Feline. This balances the ration.

Possible meat types are e.g. horse, duck, deer, ostrich or kangaroo. The meat can be fed boiled, roasted or raw. Please choose a type of meat that your cat has never had before.

Permanently, the ration should be supplemented with a source of dietary fibre, as the meat can be digested very well and the faeces volume is then often so low that the cat has difficulties defecating. In order to increase the faeces volume again and to increase the frequency of defecation, the addition of a well-tolerated vegetable variety is useful. All vegetables that we eat as humans are suitable. Finely grated courgettes or carrots are often well accepted. Mashed vegetables marketed as baby food are practical and are often well accepted.

Various types of oil (e.g. safflower oil, rapeseed oil, walnut oil, linseed oil, salmon oil or salmon oil capsules) are recommended to supply omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. One teaspoon of oil corresponds to approx. 4 g. Please decide on one type of oil at the beginning and gradually test other types for their compatibility. As additional calories are absorbed through the oil administration, the amount of meat per teaspoon of oil should be reduced by 50g in order to prevent your cat from gaining weight. Please do not add more than 1 teaspoon of oil per day per cat to the ration.

For reasons of taste, availability and price, you are welcome to substitute the type of meat once symptoms have improved. You can try out all the foods you would like to feed. However, it is important that only one new food component is added to the plan every 1-2 weeks. If your pet remains symptom-free only then should the new variety be permanently integrated into the diet.
