6 Signs of Health

Superior nutrition with delicious taste is at the heart of your cat’s heath and happiness. Feeding PURINA ONE daily helps build the six visible signs of health, and the appealing taste ensures they enjoy every bowl.

1. body condition

Cats vary in size among individuals and breeds. Observing and feeling a cat’s body are useful tools in assessing the body condition of the individual pet. Is your cat in ideal body condition?

2. digestion

Digestibility is the percentage of a food’s protein and other nutrients available and utilized by your pet. Assuming your pet is in good health, digestibility can be judged by stool quality and volume. Small, firm stools are a sign that better nutrition is making a difference inside your pet and less of the food is passing through as waste. Any one of a combination of factors influence digestibility:
FORMULA
The digestibility of the product will vary as the ingredients vary.
NUTRITIONAL BALANCE
The correct ratio of the nutrients in the diet helps to ensure their efficient utilisation by the pet.
INGREDIENT QUALITY
Poor quality ingredients can adversely affect the digestibility of a pet food.
PROCESSING
A formula of good quality ingredients can have its digestibility reduced by over-cooking or over-processing.

3. skin, coat and eyes

Healthy skin and a shiny, well-groomed coat not only enhances your pet’s appearance, it makes your pet feel more comfortable and less prone to skin irritation and external parasites.

4. immune system

Healthy pets are usually alert, curious about their environment, and anything new they might encounter. They have a good appetite and keep themselves well groomed. Although the immune system generally functions on the inside, there are some outward signs that indicate robust good health:

  • Sleek, shiny coat.
  • Active and energetic.
  • Clear, bright eyes.
  • Alert posture.
  • Normally healthy skin; supple skin.
  • Healthy gums.
  • Good lung capacity; easy breathing.
  • Strong muscles, healthy lungs.
  • Resistance to disease.
  • Responds better to vaccines.

5. dental health

Your pet’s dental health is very important. Healthy teeth and gums are the first step in the utilisation of the important nutrients your pet food provides. The ability to effectively chew food is a vital precondition for digestion.

6. bone and joint health

Bones and joints benefit from a properly balanced diet. Although we think of bones and joints as static, or completely developed once adulthood is reached, they are constantly restructuring themselves. Therefore, to stay healthy, they need a constant supply of nutrients including protein, water, and minerals like calcium and phosphorous. Here are some signs that may help identify bone and joint health:
