Why choose top quality?
FELICUTAN® is a nutricine for cats, with a high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E.
The active ingredients or poly-unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in FELICUTAN® are obtained from deep sea fish and compete with arachidonic acid in the cell membrane, which produces an anti-inflammatory effect by:
suppressing the production of pro-inflammatory eicosanoids, such as prostaglandins (PGE2), thromboxanes (TXA2), leukotrienes (LTB4) and lipoxins (LXA and LXB), which are produced in arachidonic acid metabolism;
down regulation of the expression of (inflammatory) genes that are responsible for the formation of inflammatory mediators via the NF-κB pathway (signalling pathways that result in the activation of the transcription factors);
metabolic conversion of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in resolvins (RvEs and RvDs respectively);
inhibition of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1β (Interleukin 1β), IL-6 and TNFα (Tumour Necrosis Factor α).
FELICUTAN® contains vitamin E as anti-oxidant, to combat the peroxidation of the unsaturated fatty acids in the tissues. The cell membrane integrity is maintained.
FELICUTAN® contains tuna aroma to guarantee palatability.
