While your cat’s food is sure to be doing a stand-up job of providing your pet with appropriate levels of essential nutrients, it is still very much possible for your cat to develop a nutritional deficiency somewhere along the way. Carrying brands like Nupro, Cranimals, Pet Naturals, Nutramax, Purina, Ark Naturals, KMR, Naturvet, Probios, Zoetis, and more, The Hungry Puppy offers cat supplements that help fix that problem.
Supplements should be incorporated into your feline’s diet depending upon their particular health needs and deficiencies. One of the most common supplements that can be given to your cat are those that support their joints and mobility. These supplements, such as sprinkle capsules from Nutramax Cosequin, use a combination of glucosamine and chondroitin, which prevent or slow down the effects of arthritis by repairing cartilage and increasing lubrication in the joints.
There are also additives that can be incorporated into your kitty’s meal that help with digestion. Ark Naturals Gentle Digest Capsules combine probiotics and prebiotics to help regulate your kitten’s bowel movements, which is similar to NaturVet Digestive Enzymes Powder. This is another great product that helps with digestion, as it contains alpha-Amylase, protease, cellulase, and lipase - all of which break down cellulose and hydrolyze starch, triglycerides, and proteins. There are also Probios powders that use live microorganisms to balance the bacteria in your cat’s digestive tract, supporting their appetite and immune system. Overall, digestive supplements are useful during times of change, such as food transitioning, weaning, birth, traveling, etc, and for pets with sensitive stomachs and flatulence.
Another product you may add into your cat’s routine is KMR Kitten Milk Replacer Powder or Liquid. Great for felines up to the age of six weeks, these are intended for kittens that have been orphaned and rejected, or those that are nursing. Its formula, providing necessary proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, is exceptional for growing kittens or cats that need a highly digestible supplement.
For an overall, general approach to your cat’s health, multivitamins are a great choice! They contain mixes of necessary vitamins and minerals that are essential to support your furry friend’s immune system. For example, Pet-Tabs are highly palatable while also providing calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, zinc, vitamins A, D, E, taurine, etc. Nupro Health Nuggets use a unique blend of enzymes, amino acids, omega fatty acids, and nutrients like norwegian kelp, flaxseed, fish meal, nutritional yeast cultures, and more. These multivitamins’ use of nutrient packed, real, whole ingredients will help to give your cat the boost of nutrition they need while simultaneously promoting shiny coats and a great taste.
No matter what vitamin or mineral your cat may be lacking in, The Hungry Puppy provides the supplements you need to fill the gap!
