Liquivite is a canned, liquid food in the form of a creamy chicken soup.
Weaning : Ideal For kittens and puppies Liquivite makes an ideal weaning food, introducing meat into their diet, but in a familiar liquid form. It makes it much more affordable than other weaning foods.
Liquivite appeals to the SENIOR cat or dog, perhaps not as able to eat solid foods as readily. Dogs or Cats also recovering from Dental surgery.
Liquivite is suitable for cats and dogs with chronic renal failure (CRF), its high liquid content delivering the higher levels of hydration necessary for cats and dogs with kidney failure. Go to the About Liquivite details below for fuller details about CRF.
Liquivite helps in feeding cats and dogs which have a poor appetite or are fussy feeders. Being a soup, Liquivite offers variety, a change from the usual canned or dry foods.
When a cat or dog does not drink enough, Liquivite offers a way of maintaining liquid intake. It may be more acceptable than water
Liquivite is used by veterinary surgeons to both feed and rehydrate the sick, post-operative and convalescent cat and dog, to aid recovery. It is smooth enough for syringe-feeding when appetite is absent, and easily consumed when appetite returns. Click on “About Liquivite” for a full analysis of ingredients and supplementation.
Liquivite is available from your veterinary surgeon, from online veterinary pharmacies, or you can buy it online directly from us.
Chronic Renal Failure ( CRF )
Liquivite is not specifically designed as a renal diet, but is suitable for use with Cats and Dogs suffering from chronic renal failure ( CRF ). Cats and dogs with CRF can only have their symptoms managed, partly through diet. Dehydration is a common symptom, and it is essential to maintain water intake. Cats naturally take in much of their water requirement from their food, rather than drinking, so canned foods such as Liquivite are suited to cat nutrition. Liquivite has a much higher 90% moisture level so helps maximise liquid intake while still feeding the animal.
The Protein level in Liquivite is low, relative to its high moisture content, a necessary requirement for cats and dogs with CRF, and Liquivite’s protein sources are good quality chicken meat, chicken liver, milk and eggs. To compensate for lower protein intake, Liquivite has a higher fat level, with significantly more of its calories coming from the fat content than from the protein, and Liquivite’s fat is high in polyunsaturates.
The Phosphorus level also needs to be low, and Liquivite’s, on a Dry Matter basis is only 0.75%. Liquivite is also supplemented with B group vitamins at significant levels.
Amounts to feed reflect Liquivite’s higher moisture content and its role in re-hydrating as well as feeding the sick cat or dog. For cats, introduce at 100g per kg of bodyweight; increase by 50% as appetite returns. For small breeds of dogs introduce at 100g per kg of bodyweight, for medium breeds at 80g, and for large breeds at 60g. Increase by 50% as appetite returns. These directions are given on the labels, as are amounts to feed the weaning kitten or puppy.
Shake can well before opening. Once opened, use within 24 hours, refrigerating any unused portion. Return to room temperature before feeding. Liquivite also freezes well, allowing its use over a period of time, for example where small daily amounts are needed for the weaning kitten or puppy. Freeze Liquivite in serving-sized amounts. When required, defrost and allow to return to room-temperature, stir well, and feed as normal.
