Cat Food for Healthy Skin and Coat
If kitty is itchy or has a dull fur, a special diet can help
Whether your cat has dandruff, dryness, fur loss, a not-so-shiny coat or all of the above — poor nutrition may be the problem. High-quality cat food can help solve it. These foods include nutrients essential to your cat’s health and well-being.
What ingredients am I looking for?
Certain vitamins and minerals are of particular help to fur and skin; they’re found in limited ingredient or “skin and coat” cat food formulas. These ingredients do everything from maintaining the color of your pet’s fur, imparting softness and shine, to controlling skin health at the cellular level. Check the label for:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin E
- Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids
