Dinovite GOAL: Pet your cat. How big are the hairballs?
We're here to encourage you to keep going! You are about at the mid-way point through your supplement and you may be starting to see some positives.
This week the goal is to pet your cat. That may sound weird, but hear us out. You can really tell quite a bit of how well your cat is doing! If your cat is feeling fresher with less shedding, this is a great sign of wonderful things happening on the inside. If your cat still has a funky smell or greasy coat, let's look into where the source is. Scroll down for details about this.
Of course, by this point, 7 weeks of serving Dinovite for Cats, your cat should be getting 1 full scoop of Dinovite for Cats supplement each day. If he's not eating the full scoop, he is not getting enough supplement to fully support his immune system, digestive track, and well-being. Work your pet to the full scoop per day for best results. Need help doing this? Don't get frustrated and give up, Contact us or give us a call at 859-428-1000.
What the Heck is That SMELL?! Is That Really the Cat? Ewww that smell! Not much can be worse than the stink of a stinky cat. Most cat smells (that come from the inside out) can be narrowed down to 2 causes: Gas or Yeast
Smells From Inside: Cats with Gas
A cat's bad gas is a direct sign that he is having difficulty digesting his food. Most people feed their cats a dry commercial kibble cat food and these are loaded with carbohydrates, fillers, rancid fats, dyes and chemicals that can all upset your cat's digestive tract and cause stinky cat gas. In the USA it is the practice to feed cat foods that are largely made of grains. Grains are very hard for your cat to digest resulting in digestive upset and bad cat gas.
To eliminate the gas issue, you need to modify your cat's diet and add elements that will help him digest his cat food. Some important elements to include are digestive enzymes. As you are diligently serving Dinovite for Cats, you are adding great levels of these digestive enzymes. Don't forget how important it is to feed your cat fresh meats, animal fats, and oils, as well. Stay away from grains and fillers both cause bad gas in cats.
Smells From the Outside: Cats with Yeast:
Yeast on cats is caused by a yeast called Candida albicans. Candida albicans is an opportunistic yeast that normally inhabits the body and intestinal tract of our pets. The job of candida Albicans in cats is to recognize and destroy harmful bacteria.
In a healthy cat's body, candida Albicans is controlled by a properly functioning immune system and "friendly" bacteria. However, if a cat's immune system is weakened, the number of friendly bacteria decreases and candida Albicans will shift from yeast form (a non-invasive, sugar-fermenting organism) to fungal form (invasive, mucosa damaging) - the cat's yeast infection starts.
Signs of a cat with a yeast infection:
- Cat has stinky skin, that comes from the inside.
- Cat has chronic ear problems, stinky goopy itchy ears. Do you clean, medicate, deodorize your cat's ears continually?
- Cat has itchy skin, licking or pulling hair, skin rashes. Are you up all night listening to your cat lick and dig?
- Cat has oily fur & flaky skin, brittle coat. Do you hesitate to pet your cat because of what ends up on your hands?
