Food sensitivity or intolerance is an unfavorable reaction to certain foods. Food sensitivity occurs when your cat’s immune system reacts to a specific food ingredient. In response to this, the body produces the substance “histamine”. Histamine is what causes the sensitivity symptoms, such as skin disorders and hair loss. In addition to food sensitivities, cats can also suffer from food intolerances. Food intolerance occurs when your pet cannot digest certain substances. It is difficult to tell the difference between a food sensitivity and a food intolerance. Both can result in similar symptoms, such as skin, coat and stomach problems.
Once it has been established that your cat is having a reaction to one or more substances, it is important to find a dietary food that stops the unwanted reaction. SANIMED Skin/Sensitive contains no less than 5% fish oil and 0.5% borage oil. The protein molecules in this food have been greatly reduced in size, making it difficult for your cat’s immune system to recognize them. This stops the unwanted sensitivity reaction from occurring. This means that this food is also suitable for sensitive intestines.
SANIMED Skin/Sensitive dry food and SANIMED Skin/Sensitive wet food are fully interchangeable and work great in combination.
