Kitties are half wild, half tamed. Their wilder roots make them headstrong and independent, but they do need our help—at least every once in a while. Digestive help in particular is one of the best gifts we humans can give to our beloved felines.
Let’s talk hairballs
When cats groom, hair passes through the digestive tract and is excreted when your cat goes to the bathroom. If the hair stays in the stomach, it can form a ball. The occasional hairball once a month is okay, but any more than that will upset the stomach. To minimize hairballs:
- Brush your cat daily
- Get your cat professionally groomed
- Add fiber to your cat’s diet
- Address the problem from the inside out
Your cat will thank you for giving them a digestive aid. Prana Pets’ Good Digestion for Cats diminishes inflammation in the GI tract, helps the absorption of nutrients, promotes healthy appetite, regulates digestion, and encourages the healing of tissue. It also relieves bloating, gas, and nausea.
We might not get hairballs, but we can relate to some of the issues cats have. If your cat is taking a long time going, they might be constipated. There are some things you can do at home to treat and prevent constipation in your kitty:
- Increase your pet's water intake
- Replace dry food with the canned kind
- Eliminate all grains in the diet
- Feed them a gut-healthy diet rich in nutrients, fatty acids, and Omega 3s and 6s
If constipation becomes chronic, take your cat to the vet.
One way to know if your cat is having any serious tummy problems is to watch for symptoms like diarrhea, which could indicate an infection. Thankfully, you can make sure your cat never has to experience the harmful effects of inflammation or infection, even before the onset of something.
Prevent infections: Prana Pets’ Digestive Immunity Regimen is a great option for digestive infections in cats. It has the plant power of two herbal remedies for the holistic support of your cat’s body: the Good Digestion Formula promotes a healthy digestive tract, and the Immunity Blend boosts immunity and detoxifies the body.
Prevent inflammation: Inflammatory issues that can plague the digestion of cats are gastroenteritis and colitis. The Prana Pets Digestive Symptom Pack is highly recommended to treat any inflammation in the digestive tract. It has the Good Digestion Formula—plus CBD Oil for Cats. CBD oil can help alleviate inflammation, pain, and nausea.
Digestive issues can put a lot of unneeded stress on a kitty. CBD oil also eases any nervousness your feline friend may be experiencing.
A cat with healthy digestion is unstoppable. They are free to enjoy life, do the zoomies, and chase lasers till the cows come home. Remember: our cats own us—and what an honor it is to be owed by a cat. We must take our roles as cat protectors seriously, doing all we can to ensure the quality of life of our kitty is the best it can possibly be.
