Animals have unique physiological structures, and therefore need specific food and nutrients to keep them in optimal health. No longer considered just animals, household pets require special attention. Filling the need, the pet food industry has grown tremendously over the years. But are you getting the best nutrients for your dog or cat?
Cats Have Special Nutritional
Cats are carnivorous. But, unlike dogs that can eat some plant-based foods, cats need animal protein to survive. Amino acids like taurine and arginine are important to a cats health and without them cats could die.5-7 Taurine, for one, is a must for heart, kidney, and eye health.8-11 Arginine detoxifies ammonia in cats kidneys and is also important for heart and pancreatic function and keeping the gut healthy.12-15 The essential fatty acid, arachidonic acid, is another must for cats which is used in every cell in the body.16 And, just like humans, they need B vitamins to support their cardiovascular system.17
Cats also have problems metabolizing certain amino acids from other nutrients, such as the conversion of niacin to tryptophan or vitamin A from beta-carotene, along with limitation in enzyme systems. For that reason cats have a more stringent need for specific nutritional requirements than for omnivores such as the rat, dog, and man.18
