Natural, premium dry food for kittens and pregnant or nursing cats. With an 80% meat content, this delicious food is low in carbohydrates and 100% grain free.Applaws Kitten dry food is a perfectly balanced food for kitten, as well as pregnant or nursing cats. It simulates the natural diet of a cat in the wild in a dry kibble form. Cats are carnivores and their digestive system is adapted to thrive on a diet high in natural animal proteins. The natural cat diet only contains 1 to 5 % plant content from the intestines of prey. The grains found in many other dry pet foods cannot be utilised and are difficult to digest for cats. Surplus carbohydrates are not saved but are converted into glycogen or fat. The result can be obesity, liver or pancreas disease and even diabetes.
Applaws Kitten dry cat food uses meat as its only source of protein, which can be effectively converted into energy by your cat. It is also suitable for cats with allergies and food intolerances.
Applaws Cat Food for Kittens contains no artificial preservatives. Added antioxidants for longer preservation of the food are derived from natural selenium and natural tocopherol which can have an additional positive effect on your cat's health and vitality.
Natural omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids strengthen the fur and skin structure and give your cat's coat a glossy shine. Cat Food for Kittens also contains cranberry extract to support the urinary and digestive tracts.
