Science has established that our feline family members’ nutrient requirements have evolved over time and it is necessary to ensure all nutrients are included in their diet. Specific nutrients required include a high protein level due to cats being obligate carnivores, taurine for heart, vision and digestion as well as arginine for clearing nitrogenous waste products.

Vitamin requirements include thiamin, niacin, pyridoxine, vitamin D and animal sourced Vitamin A (Not plant). These vitamins are essential for normal metabolism and total well-being and they must be incorporated in their diet as cats cannot create them in their bodies sufficiently.

Cats also require specific omega 6 & 3 essential fatty acids. Uniquely cats require arachidonic acid (omega 6) that acts as a precursor to a range of essential inflammatory mediators. This omega 6 essential fatty acid is then carefully balanced with Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) & Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) which are omega 3 essential fatty acids to find the optimal balance between pro & anti-inflammatory responses in the body.

Fibre requirements are also unique in cats, and it is essential to supply the appropriate amount for digestive balance and to optimize the gut microbiome health.

Cherish Pet Food has included all essential vitamins, nutrients and essential fatty acids at scientifically established levels to nourish the mind, body and spirit of our feline family members.

We take care of the science, so you can Cherish more moments together.
