As cat lovers and experienced cat owners ourselves, we know that the condition of a cat's skin and fur is frequently a reflection of overall health. Poor skin health can sometimes be traced to dietary insufficiencies or imbalances. Problems with the skin and fur are never just cosmetic. Symptoms such as hair loss, thinning fur, dullness, dry flaky skin, excessive scratching, thickened skin, infections, and odors can often be traced back to either a shortage or an excess of a specific nutrient. In fact, there is no more visible indicator of problems with your cat's overall health than problems with the skin and fur. The right nutrients in the right proportions are indispensable to keeping your cat healthy.
Many of the nutrients your cat needs for a healthy skin and fur can be found in the remarkable fruit known as the avocado. Nutrient rich avocados contain vitamins A, E and C in abundance. They're also an excellent source of balanced nutritional essentials for your cat's skin and fur health€”and good health in general. Avocados are high in folate, potassium, niacin, essential fatty acids, and many other nutrients. They have no cholesterol, very little sodium, and are high in monounsaturated fats. Ounce for ounce, the avocado is simply one of the most nutritious fruits there is.
We created AvoDerm Natural formulas with California avocados so your cat could have a healthy skin and fur on the outside€”and to keep them healthy on the inside. Our AvoDerm Natural formulas put your cat on the right nutritional track, and keep them there. Since 1947, we've invested our best resources developing the finest in wholesome and natural pet foods. Put our quality, innovation, and dedication to work for you and your feline companion€”put your trust in AvoDerm Natural!
