Just as in dogs, too much weight can be bad for your cat’s health. Diamond CARE Weight Management Formula for Adult Cats can help address weight issues in cats without leaving them feeling hungry. Powdered cellulose, a source of insoluble fiber, helps cats feel full, while L-Carnitine aids the body in metabolizing fat. And to make sure cats get all the nutrients they still need, this formula is rounded out with omega fatty acids, guaranteed antioxidants and probiotics for digestive health. This is a complete diet, so you can feed it long-term, but you should always check with a veterinarian before making any changes to your cat’s diet.

RESEARCH

Key Research Findings and Supporting Studies

Diamond CARE pet foods are designed based on proven research and carefully curated studies. This document is a synopsis of the key findings that guided the formulation of Diamond CARE Weight Management Formula for Adult Cats.

Obesity is a common nutritional disorder that is associated with adverse impacts on health and well-being.

Obesity is the most common nutritional disorder in cats.4

In middle-aged cats, obesity increases the risk of death three times over that of lean cats.5

Obese cats are nearly four times more likely to develop diabetes mellitus than lean cats.5

Obese cats are three times more likely to develop lameness than lean cats.5

High-fiber diets are effective for weight loss and satiety as perceived by pet owners.

A diet high in fiber led to weight loss and was equivalent in regards to perceived satiety when compared to a low-carbohydrate diet.2

High-quality protein and omega-3 fatty acids are important for safe weight loss in cats.

Cats fed diets to achieve rapid weight loss were protected from hepatic lipidosis when the diets they were fed contained high-quality protein and essential fatty acids.6

Dietary L-Carnitine helps promote weight loss.

Cats given an oral supplement of L-Carnitine while consuming a weight-reduction diet lost weight at a significantly faster rate than those given a placebo.1,3
