Thursday, February 16, 2012

Cats do need vitamins to stay healthy.  They need the essential vitamins which include A,B,C ,D,E and K. Complete, high quality cat food will contain all of these vitamins.  Vitamin supplements may be needed for strays, especially kittens that may be malnourished. Cats that are pregnant, nursing or are unable to absorb certain nutrients may also benefit from vitamin supplements.  If a cat is vitamin deficient, they may exhibit lethargy, anemia, poor skin, a dull coat and weak bones and teeth. If your cat as a vitamin deficiency, follow your veterinarians recommendation. Large doses of some vitamins can cause illness.  In these cases, more is not necessarily better.

Remember, your pets count!
