Your cat’s skin and coat is a natural reflection of its internal health. Your cat’s skin and coat rely on a balance of protein and vitamins to keep it looking healthy and when it doesn’t. At Vet Medic, we recommend that all our cat owners feed their kittens and cats a balanced diet which will help aid or maintain issues from occurring but will also aid in health maintenance, growth and development.
Meat is the best possible source of protein for your cat whilst B vitamins can be found in meat, yeast, wheat germ and nuts and seeds. What’s more, zinc will help to keep skin and hair healthy and this can be gained from meats, vegetables and egg yolks. In order to keep a cat’s skin healthy and clean, many pet owners also choose to use coat shampoos and conditioners. These can moisturise dry skin and restore a coat’s condition, leaving it glossy without a greasy film.
One of the richest sources of Vitamin A is in fish which contains Omega 3 fatty acids. Cat owners who are looking to feed their cat vitamins through supplements will find a fine array of choice through Vet Medic. Each is sourced from the biggest and most respected brands whilst still being competitively priced. Those who require additional assistance or advice can contact a member of the team for additional information.
