  • Habe eine nierenkranke Katze und muss auf Protein- und Phosphorgehalt achten. Leider finde ich zu Phosphor keine Angaben bei der Zusammensetzung des Feuchtfutters.

  • Hallo liebes The Better Cat Team.

    Da meine beiden Kater sehr wählerisch sind, bin ich immer auf der Suche nach einem guten Futter. Ihr Probierpaket ist im Prinzip eine gute Sache, ich fände es jedoch besser, wenn es von jeder Sorte Nassfutter nur je ein Exemplar und das Trockenfuter in einer kleineren Menge enthielte. Vielleicht wäre dies umsetzbar? Danke und viele Grüße aus Sachsen

  • Hallo Ilona, leider bieten wir (noch) kein hypoallergenes Futter an. Wir empfehlen dir, einen Fachtierarzt für Tierernährung und für Dermatologie aufzusuchen. Viele Grüße, Tierärztin Veronika
