Taurine is an essential amino acid for cats. It is an important supplement in any feline diet, whether raw, feed or cooked. Taurine powder is a nutritional support for cats for metabolism, immune system, visual and heart function, and skin and coat. And for dogs it is a support in the nervous and cardiac system and in cooked homemade diets or diets that contain cereals and / or legumes.
Taurine cannot be absent from any cat diet. Cats, unlike dogs, cannot synthesize taurine in sufficient quantities, so it is necessary to supplement taurine additionally if we prepare raw or cooked homemade diets.
What happens if my cat does not consume taurine?
Taurine deficiencies can lead to serious illnesses such as:
- Blindness Degeneration of the retina
- Weakness in the heart muscle Reproduction problems
- Insufficient growth of kitten puppies Central nervous system disturbances
- Deformation of the spine in kittens
- Immune system problems
For dogs, taurine is highly recommended in those breeds that tend to be deficient, if your dog needs nutritional support for the heart or nervous system or if you give him a home cooked diet or with cereals and / or legumes.
