Do Cats Need Vitamins?

Saturday, December 22, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Just like humans, cats need vitamins to stay healthy. Essential vitamins include A,B,C,D,E and K. Complete high quality cat foods   typically provide cats with all the vitamins they need but vitamin supplements may be warranted for strays, especially kittens that have been malnurished.  Cats that are pregnant, nursing or unable to absorb certain nutrients may also benefit from vitamin supplements. Vitamin deficient cats may exhibit lethargy, anemia, poor skin, a dull coat and week bones and teeth. If your cat has a vitamin deficiency, follow your vets recommendation. Large doses of some vitamins can cause illness. In such cases, more is not necessarily better.

Remember, your pets count!
