Weight Management Technology
Hill’s™ VetEssentials NeuteredCat Young Adult formulas include Hill's breakthrough weight management technology to help keep your neutered cat at an ideal healthy weight.
The unique blend of ingredients and low fat content that make up the weight management technology helps your neutered cat avoid the typical weight gain after spay or neuter surgery and maintain lean body mass. Clinically proven to support calorie burning, this weight management technology promotes ideal weight for a better quality of life.
Unique kibble with teeth-cleaning action
Hill’s™ VetEssentials cat foods for Young and Mature Adult cats make special use of unique kibble technology to keep teeth clean and breath fresh.
Clinically proven to reduce plaque and tartar, help freshen breath and reduce the long-term risk of gum disease, this technology was developed after years of dedicated research with the goal of keeping your cat in the best of health. Special fibres help the kibble stay in contact with the tooth surface all the way to the gumline, providing a unique gentle scrubbing action which scrapes away bacteria-laden plaque and tartar as your cat chews. The result is fresh breath and bright clean teeth to support your cat’s overall dental health.
