Why Cats Need Diet Supplements
The evolution of cats from their natural state, through the outdoor working animal, to the present indoor living, human companion, has resulted in three significant changes to its diet, living conditions and the elimination of many parasites.
The diet of cats has changed enormously from their natural state when cats were omnivores whose diet was a balance of plants, fruits, grains and the occasional flesh. Today the diet of cats consist mainly of meat and grains (corn, wheat, rice.) A diet consisting mainly of these can lead to a sub clinical inflamed state, that is a condition which promotes such inflammatory conditions as joint disease, heart disease, inflammatory gut disease, eczema and some cancers and mental aging. Their diet is deficient in such key nutrients as vitamin E, A, B12. This is exacerbated when the feed is exposed to high heat (during the manufacturing process) when the essential vitamins, fatty acids and minerals that may have been added to the animal feed are destroyed.
The role of the cat today has also changed. Less often is the cat an outdooranimal, more often he is a companion who lives indoors, thus exposing them to many of the most common allergens like house dust mites, house dust, human dander, feathers, tobacco, and molds.
Immunoglobin E antibodies (IgE) are believed to be the primary defense that a cats immune system produces to fight parasites, they are also responsible for producing allergic reactions as they cause the release of histamines which cause redness of skin, itching and symptoms of dermatitis. Evidence suggest that as catowners become more efficient at eradicating parasites from their cats, those cats with a predisposition for producing high levels of IgE are more susceptible to allergies.
Atopy is an environmental allergy affecting the skin. It is like a
version of hay fever. It is quite common, about 10 percent of cats can
become sensitive to substances in their environment and to pollen from
grasses, trees and weeds. A cat sensitive to these allergens may
develop an allergic reaction in the form of extreme itchiness
(pruritis.) Some cats with Atopy also have an allergic reaction to
their food; this also manifests itself by excessive scratching and
biting at their feet.
