RECOACTIV® Immune Tonicum for cats is an appetite-stimulating dietary supplement for nutritional restoration of poorly eating and weakened cats as a result of general malaise, illness or surgery, as well as in the case of hepatic lipidosis ("fatty liver"). Thanks to its outstanding acceptance, RECOACTIV® Immun fulfills the function of an appetite stimulant and encourages cats to eat independently, even when changing food is difficult.
RECOACTIV® Immun for cats stimulates the appetite, provides the animals with sufficient liquid and provides easily digestible, high-quality proteins, vitamins and trace elements.
Due to its liquid form, urgently needed nutrients can be absorbed well even in the case of painful diseases of the teeth, gums and in the mouth and throat, as the chewing and swallowing apparatus is only exposed to little stress.
RECOACTIV® Immune for cats is very well and permanently tolerated and is effectively absorbed in the intestine due to its consistency. It stimulates food intake* even in the case of illness and convalescence, as well as in the case of general loss of appetite and refusal to eat. In this way, RECOACTIV® strengthens and supplies the animal with important vital substances, prevents deficiency symptoms and makes an important contribution to preventive care and during the treatment of the cat.
RECOACTIV® Kidney Tonic is available for cats with kidney dysfunction and (chronic) kidney insufficiency.
Why cats don't eat
Loss of appetite is a common phenomenon in cats and the reasons are varied. While, for example, high temperatures or new food can cause a temporary "upset", other causes are definitely more serious and should be investigated and treated quickly. If there is pain or deeper medical reasons and the cat stops eating for a longer period of time, a veterinarian should be consulted!
However, most of the causes of a lack of appetite are harmless and can be influenced by the pet owner. Possible reasons for inappetence in cats include:
- Abrupt feed change - a feed change should be done gradually and over a longer period of time, the feed should always be fresh
- Stress - the change of environment, for example due to a move or the death of a roommate can temporarily affect your mood
- Discomfort in the teeth, mouth and throat that causes pain when eating
- Feeling unwell from fever, infection, or parasites
- Organ diseases such as renal insufficiency
Why is it critical if cats do not eat for a long time
In contrast to dogs, for example, persistent food refusal is critical in cats. Cats are so-called carnivores, which means that they mainly and regularly feed on prey and their proteins. If this supply of proteins is missing due to discontinued or restricted feed intake, the metabolism falls back on the body's own fat reserves. However, due to the lack of adaptability, the dissolved fat is not completely broken down into energy and accumulates in the liver. Prolonged sobriety ultimately leads to so-called hepatic lipidosis, a life-threatening, acute fatty liver disease. In this case, care must be taken immediately and consistently to ensure that the animal is supplied with plenty of moisture and energy, in extreme cases by force-feeding. Immediate food intake is an absolute prerequisite for recovery! Basically, regular food intake is essential for keeping cats healthy, moist food with high-quality proteins and without grain is to be preferred.
RECOACTIV® products contain important vitamins and trace elements and consist of natural, food-grade ingredients. They are free of grain, sugar, coloring and preservatives.
*In cooperation with the institute for animal nutrition of the Freie Universität Berlin, department of veterinary medicine, it was proven in a scientific study that RECOACTIV® not only promotes the absorption of water but also significantly stimulates the appetite of cats and causes an increased food intake.
An adult cat of normal weight is given 10 ml per day.
In the event of an acute nutritional crisis, it is recommended to give up to 3 x 10 ml per day until the animal returns to normal eating behavior.
The RECOACTIV® Immun Tonicum can be administered pure or with the feed. Acceptance is highest at room temperature and is particularly recommended when the cat is not eating enough. In the case of critical food refusal, it has proven useful to have the tonic lick off the finger successively or to give it into the mouth by syringe (without a cannula!) until the animal has gotten used to the tonic and the appetite returns.
