Cats and fatty foods

Saturday, January 21, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

We all know that fatty foods taste good even to a fussy cat.  If a cat has a diet that is too high in fat, he could gain weight and become obese. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t feed any fats to your cat. In fact, fats are a very important part of your pets diet. Fats give your cat the energy he needs throughout the day. They also help keep his coat soft and shiny. Fats also help your cat’s body absorb important vitamins like vitamins A,D,E and K. Check the label on your cat’s food.  By law, it has to state the fat content. Talk to your veterinarian to determine what fat content is best for your cat’s age, health and overall activity level.

Remember, your pets count!
