Hill’s Science Plan Mature 7+ Sterilised Cat with Chicken is an optimally adjusted cat food for neutered cats from 7 years. Many cat owners have their cat neutered to avoid pregnancy and certain undesirable behaviours. On the downside, neutering increases the risk of becoming overweight and developing bladder stones threefold. Overweight can in turn lead to serious health problems such as diabetes mellitus. Reasons for excess weight after neutering: Reduction of sexual hormones slows down the metabolism The cat’s appetite rises by up to 25% Energy use reduces on average by 30% Reasons for the development of bladder stones after neutering: Neutered cats tend to drink less often, resulting in more concentrated urine Concentrated urine may lead to a disadvantageous urine pH Minerals in high concentration in the urine can collect and result in stone development These health risks mean your cat will have special dietary requirements for its whole life. The good news is that a special diet can reduce the risks. This is why Hill’s Science Plan Mature 7+ Sterilised Cat – Chicken was developed for daily feeding.
