Cats and Health Supplements

November 29, 2023

We all want what’s best for our pets, especially when it comes to their health. Even if you feed quality cat food, specially formulated with vitamins and nutrients to help them stay healthy and strong, some cats may need additional nutritional support. Supplements can address a cat's specific health concerns and help them reach optimum health by improving their digestion and mood.

Most cats eat the same meal every day and they may be missing out on certain vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. While you can offer them a variety of textures and flavors, supplements can be used in conjunction with a diet of high quality cat food to ensure that cats receive all the essential nutrients they need and correct deficiencies. Our new line of supplements are chews so your pet will enjoy eating them!

If your cat struggles with digestive issues, you can offer them a probiotic supplement with digestive enzymes. Stress, illness, medication, and an incompatible diet can upset their digestive systems, leading to unfortunate symptoms like diarrhea, constipation, and gas. Digestive enzymes can help break down food and make it easier for cats to absorb nutrients. They restore balance in the gastrointestinal tract by introducing healthy bacteria into the gut biome leading to proper digestion and perfect poops. Probiotics are useful for cats with sensitive stomachs or when you’re transitioning your cat to a new food. 

If your cat is anxious or easily stressed, you can offer them a calming supplement. Chamomile and valerian root are flowering plants that can mellow out your cat, allowing them to rest and relax while reducing stress and tension. These supplements can be helpful during thunderstorms, fireworks, and travel and are great for pets who suffer from separation anxiety.

Make sure to consult with your veterinarian about what supplements would be beneficial to your pet. Your vet can determine if any essential nutrients are missing from your cat’s diet and if any additional supplements are needed

While supplements can definitely be beneficial, they should not be used as a replacement for a complete and balanced diet. Make sure your cat’s food contains high-quality protein as the primary ingredient and doesn’t include fillers, artificial preservatives, and flavors. By providing your cat with high-quality food and supplements, you can help maintain their overall health and well-being for years to come.
