ST. CHARLES, MO--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - It's no secret that spaying and neutering improves the quality of life for cats and owners. The procedure provides America's 76 million pet cats with longer lives, prevents unwanted litters and creates a friendlier disposition. But, most owners don't know that the procedure can also lead to other hormonal and behavioral change.
"Owners may notice their cat seems lazy, has an insatiable appetite or begs for food," says Animal Behaviorist and Author Steve Dale. "What they don't understand is that decreased energy and increased appetite are major side effect of spaying and neutering. Royal Canin is introducing a SPAYED/NEUTERED line of feline formulas that includes balanced nutrition and appetite control to help manage these changes."
The new SPAYED/NEUTERED line of cat food is a simple solution to help cats maintain weight and promote better health throughout their lives. You can find it at your local PetSmart, PETCO or favorite pet specialty store.
