So good for his health

Our chunks in gravy recipe is formulated to promote cat’s health

  • supports hydration

Water intake is key for cat’s urinary health. Our wet diet allows cats to naturally ingest more water. High protein formulation also drives cats to drink more, which is good for them.

  • promotes urinary health

By increasing water intake, giving our pouches to your cat will decrease the mineral concentration in their urine.This will reduce the risk of inflammation and crystals in your cat’s urinary tract.

  • improves satiety effect

Thanks to its high amount of water, our diet promotes satiety. It will prevent him from feeling hungry and from begging.This satiety effect will contribute to prevent overfeeding and keep your cat in optimal body condition.

Specifically designed to meet your preferred carnivore’s needs

less_carb_more_prot.pngCats are strict carnivores

Even domesticated, cats are strict carnivores. They prefer and need to get their energy mainly from proteins and fat and their body is not adapted to large amounts of carbohydrates, which can result in digestive discomfort and weight gain.

Low Carbohydrate/High Protein recipes

We have designed our recipes following the concept of  very low Carbohydrate/High Protein. 

  • Our diet contains high amounts of animal proteins. They are essential to your cat’s health as they naturally maintain a good urina pH and encourage your cat to drink more.

  • We incorporate minimal quantities of vegetal ingredients. Our formula contains low levels of carbohydrates, which limits the risks of weight gain and fat deposit.

So tasty

Our chunks in gravy are made of high quality animal ingredients that naturally provide a flavour and taste that your cat will love.

So rest assured that not only will it be good for their health, but your cat will also love his new diet.

A good nutrition can make all the difference

For your cat's health, and apart from your love, nothing is more important than offering your cat the right nutrition. A good nutrition is key to keep him in good shape and limit the risks of developing health troubles. 

A good nutrition is a balanced nutrition that will fulfill his nutritional needs as a strict carnivore, as well as the specific requirements based on his age, lifestyle, body and health condition. In any case, it should respect a Low Carbohydrate / High Protein formulation, which is the basis to meet carnivore needs. It should also include a large proportion of animal proteins, which are essential to providing a good urine pH and a healthy skin. Your cat's diet should also incorporate high quality and highly digestible nutrients. That's what we offer with VETERINARY HPM® diets. Our complete range of physiological and dietetic diets follow the same nutritional philosophy : cats are carnivores and should be fed as such, with high level of proteins, mainly of animal origin, and low levels of carbohydrates. 

By nature, cats are small drinkers, which can lead to very concentrated urines and urinary troubles like crystals, stones and cystitis. That's why, in addition to our full range of dry diets, we now propose 2 wet diets dedicated to supporting urinary health in cats by reinforcing their hydration. With these new wet diets, you can now get the benefits of wet food in VETERINARY HPM® quality. Combining our wet diet with our dry diet will provide your cat with an optimal mix covering both his nutritional requirements and his needs in water. You can for example give your cat one pouch a day of Adult cat wet and complement with the good ration of our Adult cat kibbles. In certain situations like urinary trouble, 100% wet Urology wet diet could be recommended by your vet.
