Keeping Your Cat’s Coat Shiny

CATSHINYA shiny coat is usually a sign of a healthy cat. The key to a healthy, shiny coat is in the cat food that you feed to your cat. There are many brands of cat food on the supermarket shelves but these brands aren’t always the best. New companies came along with “premium” foods, which don’t contain ingredients such as “meat by-products” or “meat meal.” Chemical preservatives, including BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin, and propyl gallate, which have been shown to cause cancer in lab animals, are now rarely used as preservatives. Brands such as Wellness, or Nutro are all natural and don’t contain preservatives. These foods do not contain by products and real fish, poultry or meat is always the first on the ingredient list. Sometimes Vets don’t recommend these brands but here’s an example of a vet that was impressed with the results.

It [Nutro] was not recommended by my vet, but when he saw them for their fixing time (about 1 month after I started feeding Nutro and two months since their initial tests), he was enthralled by how beautiful they looked. Everyone at the vet’s office raved over how healthy they were.

These foods are a bit more expensive but well worth the investment in your feline friends good health!
