What does hypoallergic mean?
Something labelled as ‘hypoallergenic’ means that it is relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.
There are certain foods which are known to be the most common when it comes to allergies and intolerances for dogs, such as grains, chicken and beef.
Proteins that are labelled ‘hypoallergenic’ are actually ‘novel’ proteins – ones that the dog has been unlikely to have eaten before and therefore would be less likely to cause a reaction.
Generally, the most novel proteins include lamb, venison and rabbit – which can be a good starting point if you are investigating your dog’s potential intolerance or allergy.
Why is Hypoallergenic Cat Food Important?
Reduces fur loss & skin problems
Many allergies can affect your cat’s the fur as well as their skin. For owners, this can mean cleaning up piles of shed hair and dander. Switching to a food that is free from allergens will drastically reduce the risk of problems such as excessive loss of hair or rashes on the skin. This is good news for your cat, too, as they will look and feel at their best.
Though cats are generally quite independent creatures, their health affects their overall happiness and well being, just like it does with humans. When they are feeling out of sorts due to a problem caused by allergies, they are less likely to feel like socialising with their owners and other pets. Providing feline pets with a raw diet that doesn’t contain elements that cause an allergic reaction is likely to improve the overall mood and temperament of your cat.
More Energy and Playfulness
Just like humans, when animals don’t feel well, they are less likely to want to engage in any kind of physical activity and may even become aggressive or withdrawn. Choosing a diet that takes in to account any potential allergic reactions means that your cat should have all of the natural curiosity and fun-filled energy you would expect from them.
Longer Life Span
Health problems associated with allergies can range from mild to severe and in the worst cases, can even reduce an animal’s overall lifespan, especially when left untreated. Allow your pet to enjoy the longest, happiest life it can by providing a diet free from additives or ingredients that may cause them to fall ill. Nutriment’s range of hypoallergenic cat food is tasty, nutritious and can help to maintain the longevity of your feline friend.
