Do cats need vitamins?

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Cats do need vitamins to stay healthy. These essential vitamins include A,B,C,D and K.  Complete, high quality cat foods typically provides cats with all the vitamins they need. Vitamin supplements may be needed for strays especially kittens. Cats that are pregnant, nursing or unable to absorb certain nutrients may also benefit from supplements.  Vitamin deficient cats may exhibit lethargy, anemia,  poor skin,a dull coat and weak bones and teeth. If your cat has a vitamin deficiency, follow your veterinarians recommendations. Large does of some vitamins can cause illness. In such cases, more is not necessarily better.
