What are Nelio Tablets for Cats?

Nelio Tablets for Cats are effective at treating chronic kidney disease or reduced kidney function. The tablets directly act on the kidneys and blood circulation, to help maintain healthy function. Nelio reduces the loss of protein through the kidneys that can occur in chronic kidney disease.

Kidney problems in cats are very common and chronic kidney disease is actually one of the most common conditions that affect older cats. Symptoms of reduced kidney function include drinking a lot of water, urinating frequently, decreased appetite and weight loss. The condition is progressive, which means it gets worse over time (if left untreated).

Nelio Tablets for Cats has a beneficial effect on the kidneys and the tablets are flavoured with pig liver to make it easier for your cat to take them, even without food. They are also scored to help with accurate dosing.

How does Nelio Tablets for Cats work?

The active ingredient in Nelio Tablets for Cats is benazepril, which belongs to a class of drug called ACE inhibitors. They work to relax the small blood vessels to make it easier for blood to flow around the body with ease.

The improvement of kidney function comes as a result of this effect, and it works to decrease the presence of excess protein in the urine. Benazepril can also help to improve your cat’s appetite; a common symptom of chronic kidney disease.

When you receive the medication, it’s important to read and understand the dosage instructions. The dose of the medicine may depend on your animal and the details of their condition.

The tablets are designed to be taken orally and are flavoured with pig’s liver to make it palatable to your pet without the need to hide it in food. However, if you are struggling to get your pet to take the tablets on their own then they can be given with a small amount of food.
