A Nutritionist’s Top Recommendations

Generally speaking, which supplements are beneficial for cats? Which are essential for their health, especially as they age and need to maintain mobility and cognitive ability?

Coming from his perspective as a nutritionist and director of the Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Service at Cornell, Joseph Wakshlag, DVM, Ph.D., recommends disease-modifying agents such as:

– Glucosamine and chondroitin to help maintain joint cartilage.
– Fish oil as a natural anti-inflammatory.
– S-Adenosylmethionine during liver compromise. Some of the Nutramax products are highly recommended, such as Denamarin (S-Adenosylmethionine, or SAMe, for liver support, as approved by your cat’s veterinarian.
