A new complementary feed designed to stimulate eating and drinking in inappetent cats and dogs has been released.
A highly palatable, liquid formulation, Nutribound should be given alongside the pet’s diet but can also be given by tube or syringe should the case require it.
It is rich in essential nutrients, containing ingredients known to help maintain the immune function, aid in maintaining gastrointestinal tract integrity and assist in skin turnover.
Claire Lewis, Virbac product manager, said: “Pets that lose interest in their food can be challenging for owners to deal with – and a pet that is struggling to eat or drink what it needs, especially after illness or surgery is more likely to have a prolonged recovery.
“Nutribound’s palatable formulation aims to ‘jump-start’ normal eating behaviour by stimulating the animal’s appetite and increasing its interest in eating and drinking again.”
Nutribound comes in a handy-sized, take-home bottle and is easy for pet owners to administer. It can be given for up to 14 days or until a return to normal eating and drinking behaviour is observed. More info through Virbac’s practice support portal www.my-virbac.co.uk
