Why does my cat need cat supplements?
If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me that question, I would be a millionaire by now. Seriously, a lot of people have the same doubt. My answer is simple - your cat needs supplements because it is not as healthy as cats in the wild.
Some of you might have noticed that cats in the wild often eat a lot of plants. Guess what? They don't do that randomly. They only eat plants which have medicinal properties. They do this often to cleanse their body and stay healthy. Since your domesticated cat does not have access to such herbs, it needs natural supplements to cleanse its system and stay healthy.
What do these herbal cat supplements contain?
The name gives you a hint, doesn't it? They contain herbs and other substances which have amazing therapeutic effects.
Can you name some of these herbs?
There are a large number of herbs used in making these natural supplements, but some of the names that come to mind immediately are Huang Qi, Mistletoe, Indian Ginseng, Milk Thistle, and Cat's Claw.
Just how good are these herbs?
They are very good at what they do. They cleanse your cat's body by flushing the toxins out of its system, improve its immune system, strengthen its vital organs and improve their functioning, nourish its blood, keep its blood pressure and blood sugar levels under control, fight and neutralize the free radicals which damage its health, increase its energy level, and more. In short - they help your cat live a long and healthy life.
Are these herbs safe for my precious little cat?
Yes, they are very safe. In fact, one of the main reasons why a lot of people have turned their attention towards these cat supplements is that they do not cause any side effects. A number of clinical studies have confirmed that these herbs do not cause any harmful side effects in domesticated animals like cats and dogs.
Are these herbal cat supplements approved by the FDA?
The herbs I have mentioned above are approved by the FDA. However, there are a number of products on the market which are not approved by the FDA and they could be harmful to your cat's health. So, you need to choose your product carefully. Choose a product which meets the guidelines set by the DSHEA (Dietary Supplements Health Education Act). Visit the website of the company and see if their products are manufactured in a GMP certified facility under the supervision of a qualified pharmacist.
Everything looks fine. But are these supplements very costly?
Not really. A month's supply of a high quality supplement which contains the herbs mentioned above will cost you less than $50. In other words, they cost you less than $2 a day.
How long should I continue giving these cat supplements?
Since the herbs I have mentioned here are very effective, you will see a great improvement in your cat's health in just a few weeks. However, you should continue giving these supplements regularly to get the best results. A regular dose of these herbs can improve your cat's disease resistance capacity and promote good health and vitality. So, I would suggest you make these supplements a part of your cat's regular diet.
