Your cat’s digestive system includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver, pancreas, intestines, rectum and anus. A lot like humans, the only difference is, your cat is an obligate carnivore, and us humans can eat almost anything we want.
Digestion begins when your cat picks up food with her mouth and starts eating. Saliva breaks down the food which makes it easier for your cat to swallow, more breakdown of food in the stomach, absorption of nutrients in the intestines and the elimination of waste occurs as the cat food is digested. Digestion is critical not only for providing nutrients but also for maintaining the proper balance of fluid and electrolytes in the body.
Signs of digestive system disorders include drooling, diarrhoea, constipation, vomiting/regurgitation, loss of appetite, bleeding, abdominal pain, bloating, shock and dehydration. Your cat can tell you she’s in pain by whining, meowing and abnormal postures (crouching while arching the back).
Some of the causes for digestive problems result from a change in their diet, overeating, consuming corrupted food from garbage cans or even table scraps. Cats can develop food allergies, worms, ingesting foreign bodies and more, the list can go on.
Your cat’s digestive system needs to be in top condition for her to feel her best. Pet Hero has a range of products that can keep your cat looking good and feeling great. Probiotic, Kyron Protexin, prevents “bad” bacteria from taking over your cat’s stomach. Kyron Pro-Lyte is an electrolyte supplement, which your cat will need in case of vomiting and diarrhoea, and Laxapet, a pet laxative, helps your cat get rid of those terrible hairballs with ease and relieves constipation.
