One of the biggest problems in cat health is overfeeding, which can lead to obesity, which in turn leads to other conditions, such as heart disease, arthritis, joint problems, and a shortened lifespan.
Some breeds of cats, such as the Bombay, the Ragamuffin, Turkish Angora, Turkish Van, and Birman are particularly prone to obesity. Consult your veterinarian to assess the ideal weight of your cat.
In order to ensure that your cat is getting adequate nutrition, it is important to add natural supplements, which are rich in vitamins and nutrients and aid in metabolizing food properly. Adding Omega oils will also help to promote healthy digestion and maintain a balance of fatty acids in the body. Processed pet foods tend to have an increased amount of omega-6, and a decreased amount of omega-3 fatty acids. It is important to achieve a balance of fatty acids to maintain or even improve health.
