Cats suffer from many of the same chronic ailments as humans, especially those associated with age, obesity and allergies. While our feline friends have many differences in their biochemistry and physiology, many of the same nutraceutical supplements are just as effective for their medical problems as they are for ours.
NanoLife Nutra Feline Arthritis Supplements
Just as in older humans, most older cats tend to experience some level of arthritis. Your veterinarian will need to make a specific diagnosis, but if you notice that your cat isn’t as active as he/she once was, has a change in gait or a limp which appears to worsen with time, your cat may be experiencing the onset of osteoarthritis. Other signs to look for may include agility issues which can manifest as decreased activity or unwillingness to climb. Some cats will slow down or stop eating as arthritic pain worsens. Note that all of these symptoms will probably get worse gradually so that you may not notice the onset of arthritis in your cat immediately. As your cat grows older it is important to discuss the possibility that your cat may be experiencing the symptoms of arthritis at each veterinary visit.
It is important to start treatment of arthritis in your cat as early as possible because once the disease gets severe, the arthritis may need to be treated with steroids and NSAIDS just like in humans. Also as in humans these drugs can cause many digestive and intestinal problems. Small animals such as cats seem to be even more sensitive to the deleterious side effects of these treatments. Therefore, effective nutritional supplements for the treatment of both the pain and progression of arthritis in felines is highly preferable. Many experts recommend that all cats be given anti-arthritis nutritional supplements after they are a few years old, because the supplements have no side effects.
NanoLife Nutra has combined the most effective supplements into a single nutritional formulation. The soy phospholipid used to make the liposomes are a healthy nutritional supplement that many humans consume for its dietary benefits.The liposomes effectively mask the taste of the more bitter- or foul-tasting supplements such as glucosamine while maintaining a creamy, homogeneous texture that your cat will look forward to as a special treat.
