Vitamins & Minerals for Cats

Cats that receive a balanced diet do not necessarily need nutritional supplements, as many types of food already contain the required vitamins and minerals. Sometimes, giving your cat a little boost of vitamins is advisable, for example after surgery, during illness or for senior cats. Other cats may require supplements due to allergies or skin problems. If you want to start your cat on supplements, talk to your vet to ensure that this has additional value as some cats don’t need them.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is required for growth, sight and reproduction, which is why it is very important for your cat to receive a sufficient amount. Vitamin A is mainly obtained from cat food that contains meat. A deficiency of this vitamin can cause night blindness and impair organ’s mucous membrane. However, vitamin A is also toxic in excess as it can cause hardening of soft tissue.

Vitamin B

Vitamin B is required for growth and metabolism, and, besides, certain types of vitamin B are required for the production of blood. Vitamin B is mainly found in meat, fish and milk. A vitamin B deficiency can stunt growth, cause problems with metabolism and even lead to a loss of appetite, skin conditions, muscle cramps and depression.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is necessary for bone development and maintenance and is mainly found in meat and butter. A vitamin D deficiency can lead to rickets, but, like vitamin A, it is toxic in excess and can lead to poisoning and bone calcification.

Like vitamin A, Vitamin E is required for reproduction and the immune system in cats. Vitamin E is mainly found in liver, fish and butter. In cats, a vitamin E deficiency can lead to muscle damage.
