Diet Tips For Cats With Heart Disease

There is no single diet that is suitable for cats with heart disease. Several factors have to be taken into consideration before a suitable diet is selected. These factors include the nature and severity of the animal’s heart condition. Although there are premium quality commercial pet food that can be appropriate for a cat with heart disease, a specific prescription diet may be needed as the problem advances a more severe stage. Here are some considerations when selecting a diet for pets with heart problems:

  • Choose a diet that can help your kitty maintain a healthy body weight and muscle mass.
  • A balanced diet to avoid nutritional deficiencies.
  • Salt restriction (mild, moderate, or severe) will depend on the stage of the heart disease.
  • Added with supplemental nutrients that can benefit heart function.

You should work closely with your vet Rochester, NY in managing your pet’s heart problem.
