I don’t know if you know this, but when we first got Korra from the shelter, she quickly got what we started to refer to as a kitty cold. It was an upper respiratory infection, which we discovered is actually quite common for shelter cats. It was still very scary for us and both Dylan and I were so worried for her. She wasn’t eating, barely drinking, and slept all the time. Luckily the vet helped us out with some really stinky (read: tasty for cats) cat food, electrolytes and instructions not to worry too much. That last one didn’t really work, but it was a relief that our new cat, who we adored so much already, would be alright.
Ever since, I’ve been so afraid that she’d get sick again. The best way to prevent that, besides annual checkups and vaccinations, is to feed her high quality food. It can be so daunting, though. Does she need gluten-free food? Should she be on a raw diet? I don’t have the answers to those questions, but I do have some information on a new cat food from Hill’s® Science Diet® that helps with hairball control and fights urinary tract infections. Anything that’ll keep our sweet girl healthy, right?
Hill’s Science Diet cat foods are natural, high quality protein-based cat foods with leading scientific technologies behind them to make sure your cat is the healthiest it can be. Did you know that two of the biggest issues that cat owners face are hair balls and urinary-tract infections? We’ve been incredibly lucky that Korra hasn’t suffered from either of those ailments, but with Hill’s Science Diet Urinary & Hairball Formula cat food, we can target both. It’s the only cat food that works from the kidney to the bladder to optimize urinary tract health while cutting hairballs out of the equation thanks to the ideal levels of magnesium and fibre in the food.
We have been incredibly lucky with Korra and haven’t had any issues with her and her litter box, but I know some owners do and a lot of cats end up back in the shelter because of it. Proper nutrition and a clean litter box can be key factors in keeping shelter cats in their forever homes and at their absolute best.
Hill’s Science Diet foods are available at Petsmart in both wet and dry formulas.
