Why Choose a Supplement for Your Cat?
To have a happy and long life, your cat needs healthy food and lots of love. However, sometimes felines develop health conditions, like digestive upset or stiff joints, that can be improved with certain dietary supplement. Even if the cat’s current food contains a supplement, it often does not include ideal levels for maximum efficacy. If you use separate individual supplements, it permits you to better control the dose your cat requires.
Before you add any supplement to your cat’s diet, it is a great idea to talk with your veterinarian. Symptoms that respond to the supplements could be indicative of explicit health issues that need additional treatment. Sometimes certain supplements should not be used if your cat has developed specific health conditions, so always speak with your cat’s veterinarian.

Crunchy Treats: The cat that loves kibble may savor crunchy treats because the mouth-feel is the same.
Catnip and Cat Grass: Though it is mostly renowned as cat grass, these tender shoots sprout from various cereal grains, like wheat, barley, and oats. Live catnip can delight numerous felines.
