Vital components

Prevention is better than cure.

Targeted prevention is possible through the use of health-promoting vital components, which will provide your pet with lasting protection against nutritional deficiencies.
Nature offers us a large number of substances, contributing to a balanced metabolism.
The right active substances for a healthy diet for your cat are what form the basis of our LEONARDO® recipes.

LEONARDO® provides the right amounts of everything your cat needs for health and vitality.

Since not everything is necessarily good for every cat, we have specifically enhanced our product range with vital components.

ProVital strengthens the body's natural immune defences

The immune system in people and animals protects against a number of illnesses. It acts as the body's police force and needs regular contact with different substances to keep it in training if it is to function reliably.

The increasing trend of keeping cats indoors and not allowing them to roam much has led to a situation where many cats are living in relatively unstimulating, sterile environments compared with their natural habitat.

Unfortunately, the consequences of this are often increased sensitivity and susceptibility to illness.

ProVital contains natural ß-1.3/1.6-glucans, made from the cell wall components of natural yeast. These ß-1.3/1.6-glucans stimulate the house cat's immune defences, mimicking what happens when cats that are free to roam come into contact with pathogens. In this way, ProVital reduces your cat's sensitivity and makes it less prone to illness.

This stimulation of the body's immune system has a particularly positive impact on sensitive cats and kittens. In this way LEONARDO® makes a valuable contribution to keeping your cat fit and healthy and in a state of total well-being!


Dental care with STAY-Clean

STAY-Clean™, a special supplement of highly soluble vitamin C for LEONARDO® dry food, has been shown to reduce the growth of plaque-forming bacteria.

LEONARDO® dry food – especially the large croquettes of LEONARDO® Adult Maxi GF – encourages chewing and scouring of plaque. LEONARDO® moist food is not pureed. The natural chunkiness of the meat has been retained to encourage chewing.

Dental problems are near the top of the list of reasons for a cat to visit the vet.

Cats that primarily eat pureed moist food are particularly prone to dental problems, because their teeth are no longer sufficiently employed when eating. The natural teeth-cleaning process that takes place when eating is virtually absent and increased levels of plaque form on the teeth. Fighting plaque formation through food is a very important part of dental care. Dental care is an important feature of the LEONARDO® product range.

STAY-Clean™ is applied to the surface of LEONARDO® croquettes. This means it can get to work straight away, preventing any bacteria from multiplying. This is particularly important for cats because, as meat eaters, they chew very little when eating. Many of the dental care products used by humans would therefore be ineffective in cat food, because they need to be rubbed into the enamel of the teeth for 2 to 3 minutes to be effective.

LEONARDO® dry food with STAY-Clean™ makes an effective contribution to feline dental care.
