Is your Cat getting all the nutrition it needs?
Updated: Mar 30, 2020
Cats need a complete healthy diet in order to be happy and have a beautiful shiny coat.
To live a long, healthy life, your cat needs proper nutrition. Here are some things to consider when selecting an appropriate diet for your cat.
Necessary Nutrients Cats are obligate carnivores, which means that they rely on nutrients found only in animal products. Cats evolved as hunters that consume prey that contains high amounts of protein, moderate amounts of fat, and a minimal amount of carbohydrates, and their diet still requires these general proportions today. Cats also require more than a dozen other nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and amino acids.
Although your cat needs certain amounts of each specific nutrient to be healthy, more is not always better. This is particularly true of vitamins and minerals, so the use of supplements is usually not necessary if you are feeding a balanced and complete diet. Supplements can be harmful to your cat, and they should never be given without a veterinarian’s approval. Cats should have access to clean, fresh water at all times.
A safe and healthy supplement is NuVet Plus Feline supplement, or a more budget friendly option is
Life Extension Cat Mix (Advanced Multi Nutrient Formula). This formula give your cat all of the additional nutrients that they need to be healthy. Adding some sardines our tuna fish to their diet can give you furry friend the additional omega 3 fatty acids they need for healthy eyes and brains.
