Everyone needs vitamins and minerals to keep going, and so does your cat. All veterinary foods already have all the vitamins and minerals your cat needs. No more is needed. But if you are feeding a not so premium food, or your feline friend has a medical condition and needs supplements, the supplements will give her little body a big boost.
Vitamins and Minerals are the key to helping your cat stay in perfect condition. For a strong immune system, your cat will need her B Vitamins. A deficiency in B Vitamins may lead to vulnerability to illnesses, slow wound healing, general weakness or slow reflexes. Vitamin C helps with the synthesis of collagen, which is an essential tissue in a cat’s body, other recommended vitamins are folic acid, biotin and choline.
Vitamins A, D, E, K are all fat-soluble, too many of these vitamins may poison your cat, always speak to your vet before giving any fat-soluble vitamins. But, Vitamin A is always recommended, your cat’s body cannot process beta-carotene into Vitamin A, and a lack of Vitamin A can cause skin and coat problems or night blindness.
Your cat does not need a lot of minerals, but parasites, like ticks and fleas can cause anaemia (iron deficiency) in cats, so supplementing with iron is usually prescribed.
Calcium is highly recommended for pregnant or lactating cats. Calcium helps produce milk. But a diet rich in calcium is good for your cat’s overall health.
Magnesium will keep your cat well-balanced and immune to certain diseases. Magnesium helps with the absorption of calcium. Do not give your cat too much magnesium and calcium as this may cause vitamin deficiency and urinary tract infections in tomcats.
Potassium, Sodium and Chloride prevents dehydration in your cat. If your cat is vomiting a lot she will need to hydrate, supplements of potassium, sodium and chloride are recommended.
Before putting your cat on a supplement, please consult with your Veterinarian first. He will give you more information and will recommend what is best for your cat.
