Have you heard of Activait® for cats and if so have you used it? This is a “nutraceutical” supplement in a capsule which is claimed to prevent brain damage due to aging. It sounds like a sort of anti-dementia product. To good to be true? It seems not.
Sixty capsules cost about £25-30 in the UK or about £2 per capsule at it most expensive. My first question is about getting your cat to eat this. It doesn’t matter if you deliver a capsule direct or on food it will usually be damn tricky.
However there are some good write ups about this product. It is a supplement for older cats and dogs (the products are not interchangeable, incidentally).
The ingredients have been recorded to improve signs of disorientation, social interaction and house soiling in older dogs.
The supplement contains:
- omega-3 fish oils
- vitamins E and C
- alpha lipoic acid (this is toxic to cats so I presume is not included in the cat version)
- coenyzyme Q
The studies about the benefits of this product relate to dogs but as mentioned the results were good.
Has anyone tried it?
