Miscanthus grass is an excellent fiber source—it’s over 80% fiber. This perennial plant is a great alternative to other conventional fiber sources such as grain hulls, beet pulp, or cellulose.
Fiber is an important part of your pet’s diet. It helps with digestive health (including promotion of healthy gut bacteria) and stool regularity.
Fiber also helps your pet feel full between meals, so they’re less likely to overeat. This is important for preventing obesity that could otherwise lead to health problems like arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, and more.
For cats, the right amount of fiber can also aid in hairball prevention by promoting safe and steady passage of hair through the digestive tract, where it is then comfortably eliminated as part of your kitty’s stool. This means your kitty is less likely to vomit hair back up as a hairball.
