Skin & Coat

Healthy skin and hair is an important essential for all cats. If their fur starts to look shaggy and dull, this could be a sign that something isn’t quite right.

There could be several reasons for this, from internal diseases to parasites or stress. An allergy could also be the cause of the issue. Constant itching and inflammation lead to poor general well-being, the fur lacks shine or can be overly straggly or greasy, and often hair loss can occur.

The right diet will help to prevent all of these problems. It’s especially important to find a suitable exclusion diet, based on only one source of animal protein and which generally contains as few ingredients as possible. Varieties of meat which the cat has not yet tried are ideal for this. Increased amounts of zinc, biotin and multiple unsaturated fatty acids can support skin regeneration.

To get to the root cause of an allergy, the exclusion diet should be carried out over a period of eight to ten weeks, during which time the patient has no access to other foods or treats. When the animal is symptom-free again, suitable treats can be tried out. After a new feed has been given, it’s important to wait around 14 days before trying something new, to see if the food triggers any reaction in the cat.

Essential fatty acids are invaluable for the skin's condition. They can protect the skin from drying out and are therefore vital for a healthy skin barrier and for the immune system. Most important for this are linoleic acid, gamma linolenic acid and omega-3 fatty acids.

We have tested the success: 45% of four-legged patients were symptom-free within the first three to six weeks after administration of a suitable diet, and a further 28% showed signs of significant improvement.

Vet-Concept foods are particularly rich in essential fatty acids.

Tip: Keeping an allergy diary that records all food given to your pet, as well as particular events and possible reactions, can be very helpful in determining what is good for your pet.
