Weight gain due to kidney disease? Lemon the gentleman finds NHVInspiring Pet Tails 3 min read
Our pet’s nutrition plays a vital role in their overall well-being. Often times, we have picky eaters that require specific diets either because they’re ‘the boss and rule the household’, or they have conditions that restricts them from eating certain foods. In other cases, we have the opposite occurring, where your little one will eat anything and everything, it’s all yummy in their tummy.
Our new friend to NHV, Lemon is one kitty that loves his food! His mum was concerned because he was always wanting to eat, and this means gaining weight. Gaining weight would then be a whole separate issue, as it can lead to other issues such as joint discomfort when walking or playing.
So, after hearing about NHV supplements, Lemon’s mum decided to give them a try to see if we can regulate Lemon’s appetite and keep him at a healthy weight. This is what she tells us:
Lemon: my mommy just wants to say #thankyou to @nhvnaturalpet 😘
Lemon was always “hungry”. The vet said he was leaking protein which was the reason caused him kept on eating.
The prescriptions didn’t work very well and we worried about whether his joints would support his weight if his eating habit kept going.
Much heard about these supplements so we decided to give it a try.
All the kitties at home are extremely fussy about their food. So there’s no way I can mix them with his meals but have to feed directly into his mouth.
Fortunately he’s cooperative. Love you Lemon 😘
His eating pattern has changed since. He won’t ask for food beside mealtime and no more vomiting brownish stuff.
I decided to weigh him this morning and to my surprise, he has lost nearly 800g and we also notice that he walks better recently 🎉🎉🎉
Leaking protein is a sign of kidney disease. Lemon is currently taking Milk Thistle, Tripsy, Turmeric and Stimmune to support vital organs throughout the body, (such as the kidneys & liver) and immune system in order to stabilize his appetite. After taking the supplements, Lemon’s gastrointestinal tract has shown improvements, and he is no longer vomiting, or having a constantly hungry belly.
Lemon now has a healthy appetite and due to the weight loss, it is much easier for him to walk with less strain on his joints. He can play and get all the exercise that he needs to be a healthy little fella.
