Blue Buffalo Healthy Gourmet Chicken Pate Indoor Canned Senior Cat Food Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): IBD can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and/or constipation in the cat. IBD can also present with weight loss as the only clinical sign.

This is a very frustrating disease to deal with and one that the veterinary community does not have all the answers for. What we do know is that decreasing stress and increasing the water content of the diet are the most important management issues to address. The water content of the diet is easy to control – feed canned food with added water. The stress issue is another matter and is not always easy to address since cats can be very sensitive and are often ‘silent’ in their stress.

Before you can understand the particulars of senior cat nutrition you need to have a basic understanding of the nutritional needs for cats in general. As you may already know, cats are obligate carnivores which means that their bodies are designed to derive maximum nutrition from animal products. The long and short of it is that cats need to eat meat. If you take a look at the ingredients list for a commercial cat food product, however, you will notice that there are a lot of ingredients listed – not just meat. This is because cats still need a blend of different macronutrients and micronutrients in order to thrive – this is true for all living things.Another factor that can contribute to weight loss in older cats is a reduced ability to smell and taste. If the cat cannot taste the food or smell it, he may not have any interest in eating it. Older cats that have dental problems may also have trouble chewing solid foods which can lead to decreased calorie intake and unhealthy weight loss. Some cat owners try soaking their cat’s kibble in broth to add flavor while also softening the pieces. Others try switching their cats to canned food because it is generally more palatable and easier to chew. Canned foods also tend to be more calorie-dense than dry foods which can be a benefit for senior cats that need to gain weight.
