Vitamins and Supplements for Cats (cont.)

More Is Not Always Better

It is important to remember that you can harm your cat by giving her too many supplements. Cats of different ages and lifestyles have very different dietary needs. Do not use different supplements together, as they may contain the same or similar ingredients. Always talk to your vet before giving your cat any type of supplements. “Over-supplementation can have ill side effects,” Cruz says. “Remember, more is not always better.”
