PetsPrefer Adult Maintenance for Cats is a daily supplement that contains more than 20 essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and taurine. All of these ingredients work together to provide the necessary nutrients for a healthy body and help support your adult cat's health. The supplement is available in an easy-to-feed, tasty tablet that may be given as a treat or mixed with food.
Adult Maintenance for Cats is a good source of Linoleic acid, which is an essential fatty acid that is necessary for good health. It is used in many biological processes, but must be ingested with food because it cannot be derived from other food components. A lack of Linoleic acid can cause symptoms such as hair loss, dry hair, and poor wound healing. Dermatitis is one of the first signs of a deficiency.
Another important ingredient in Adult Maintenance is calcium. Calcium is required for bone health and development, and it also works to ensure the proper function of nerves and muscles. This supplement is important for adult cats, as a preventative measure against the bone loss that occurs naturally as they get older. Older cats need extra calcium because, as they age, the bone breakdown can exceed formation result in bone loss. If they do not get enough calcium, there may not be enough available in the blood to maintain strong bones.
Phosphorus is second only to calcium as most abundant mineral in the body. Phosphorous and calcium work together to build strong teeth and bones. The greatest amount of phosphorus in the body is found in the teeth and bones, but it is also necessary in the cells and tissues throughout the body. Phosphorus is used in many ways, such as filtering out waste in the kidneys, and it also plays an important role in the use and storage of energy. It is necessary for the growth, repair, and maintenance, of all the cells and tissues in the body, and it is also used in the production of the genetic building blocks, RNA and DNA. Phosphorus is important to the formula because it is a necessary mineral that helps the body balance and utilize other vitamins and minerals.
Taurine is an amino-acid that is necessary for the healthy digestion of fats in the small intestine. Because cats do not produce their own taurine, it must be ingested through their diet. Taurine is an important amino-acid, used for many functions, such as reproduction and to support heart health. Deficiency of taurine can cause a lack of fertility and can also lead to complications and abnormalities in kittens. Taurine is also important for eye health, because a deficiency causes degeneration of the retina, and can ultimately lead to blindness. Taurine is also used in the body for nervous system functionality, immune responses, and protection of respiratory tissue.

Not really a treat, but my cats think they are . One car likes his tab crushed and spinles on his for. The other cat enjoys the as a whole treat. Either way, some added vitamins and minerals never hurts.
They are more than a treat
My 2 cats love it very much. They are so excited and patient to wait on the top of TV cabinet until I treat them everyday. This habbit has been continued for the last few years. I absolutely don't want to see them disappointed.
They think it's a treat!
I use this supplement every day for my three cats. Since I began adding it to their diet, I have noticed softer and shinier fur, as well as better general health. It is hard to pinpoint, but I definitely feel like they are more playful and happier. I know they're excited to get the treat every day. They jump onto the cupboard where I keep it and remind me if I don't give it to them right away in the morning.
My cats (2) just love the adult maintenance for cats.. I have been using them for about 6 years now, and one of my cats begs for them,,Every time I get them out, she is right there and I think she would eat the whole bottle if I would let her.
