A Focus On Feline Purina EN Food

Overview of Purina EN Gastroenteric Diet

Purina EN is a gastroenteric diet. This diet is for gastrointestinal issues. The feline version comes in kibble and canned varieties. It is recommended for cats with vomiting, diarrhea, pancreatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, or hepatic lipidosis (fatty liver disease). It is not recommended for cats with kidney disease or hepatic encephalopathy.

Nutritional Composition and Benefits

This diet is formulated with high protein levels and low carbohydrate levels, which helps with the nutritional requirements of cats with GI conditions. It has a high total digestibility to help promote nutrient absorption. It helps make sure that your cat is getting all the nutrients they require.

Features of the Dry Kibble Formula

The dry kibble is energy-dense, meaning that cats get what they need in a smaller amount of kibble, so you don’t have to feed as much of it. The dry diet also contains colostrum, which helps to stabilize intestinal microflora. It reduces the risk of stress-induced diarrhea and primes local and systemic immune systems.

Urinary Health and Nutritional Additions

This diet has something called the urinary st/ox defence, which means that it helps minimize the risk of urinary crystal formation. It is very important for our feline friends, as many cats are prone to urinary crystals, which can lead to lifelong problems.

Purina EN also has added B-complex vitamins. It contains moderate fat levels, which help provide energy to the cat. It also contains Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil. It is proven to be great tasting, so many cats love eating it! All of these things help ensure that the cat is getting everything it needs to help with whatever GI condition it is suffering from.

EN Naturals Variant

The feline version of this diet also comes in EN Naturals. This diet is formulated without artificial colours or flavours, corn or wheat, and added vitamins and minerals to ensure our kitty friends are still getting all of the nutrition they require.

Veterinary Consultation and Contact Information

If your cat has any GI symptoms, it should be examined by a veterinarian. If it has a condition that may respond well to either a temporary or long-term diet change, your veterinarian may recommend this diet or another GI food.
