Comprehensive Guide To Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food

What Is Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food?

Everyone loves a chunky cat! These furry fluff balls get a lot of love from their owners. Unfortunately, being overweight isn't cute for a cat. Obesity can lead to a laundry list of problems, including glucose imbalances that can lead to diabetes.

Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food helps to manage your cat's glucose levels while providing a nutritious but low-calorie diet that will allow them to lose weight. It is a clinically formulated medical diet that has scientifically proven to reduce your cat's weight and stabilize their blood sugar levels!

Why Is Obesity a Silent Killer in Cats?

Obesity is the most common nutrition-related disorder in pet cats. Your cat is classified as obese when they are more than 20 % more than the standard weight for their size. Obesity in cats leads to a steep decline in their quality of life as it affects their mobility and physical activity.

Being overweight can make osteoarthritis significantly worse, especially in older cats. As the extra weight puts more pressure on the already damaged cartilage, the condition progresses much more quickly than it should. Obesity negatively impacts cats with hip dysplasia and diabetes.

With the rise of obesity in cats, diabetes has become alarmingly common. Diabetes is a condition where your cat doesn't produce enough insulin to regulate the sugar in their blood. Proper nutrition is imperative in cats with diabetes, as blood sugar is directly affected by what your cat is eating.

Diabetes or the inability to regulate blood glucose is dangerous. Because the body cannot get enough energy from the food your cat is eating, it turns to other sources like protein and fats in your cat's body. This results in your cat losing weight at an unprecedented rate even though they might not want to eat.

Other symptoms of diabetes include excessive thirst and urination, dehydration, and nerve damage. Untreated diabetes can lead to acidic ketosis and diabetic coma, both of which can be fatal. If you have a Burmese cat, you should know that they have a genetic predisposition for developing diabetes mellitus.

How Does Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food Help?

Cats who are overweight and have trouble managing their glucose levels need targeted nutrition to help them get the nutrition they need. Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food is made with inputs from vets who are trained to treat these disorders in cats.

Hill's Prescription Diet m/d Glucosupport Feline with Chicken is clinically proven to help your cat lose weight. This diet is made with chicken as the first high-quality ingredient and a minimum guaranteed protein content of 45%. This ensures that your cat isn't getting a lot of carbohydrates that can lead to weight gain.

The amount of protein in Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food helps rebuild lean muscle your cat might have lost because of diabetes. Complex carbohydrates like sweet potatoes and flaxseeds slow down the digestion process, giving your cat's insulin time to work on the sugar being released by the food.

Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food is enriched with L-carnitine. Cats with diabetes often suffer from a fatty liver. L-carnitine aids in fat metabolism in the liver and maintains healthy liver function.

How Much Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food Should I Give My Cat Daily?

The amount of Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food you should give your cat depends on your cat's weight and weight goals. You can use the following guidelines:

Your Cat's Weight Weight Loss Weight Maintenance
6 lbs 30 g 45 g
8 lbs 40 g 60 g
10 lbs 45 g 75 g
12 lbs 45 g 75 g
14 lbs 60 g 85 g
16 lbs 60 g 85 g
18 lbs 75 g 100 g

These measurements are given in grams as it is a more accurate measurement than cups. Additionally, these are general guidelines for the average adult cat. If your vet has given you different guidelines to follow for your cat, you should follow your vet's advice.

Animals can react adversely if their food is changed suddenly and drastically. Make sure you gradually transition your cat from their regular food to Hill's Prescription Diet m/d GlucoSupport Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food for seven days. Start by substituting 25% of your cat's meal with this diet, and increase this every few days.
