Cats are strict carnivores. If your cat is ill or displays allergies, make sure you're feeding an appropriate diet, void of carbohydrate fillers or grains, which could be contributing to the condition.
WHAT IS IT?
Everyone knows that cats shed, but excessive shedding is not normal, although it is common. The shedding of hair is a normal function for cats. Cat hair grows in cycles with old hair being pushed out in the mature phase and new hair replacing it. If the process seems to be not functioning properly there could be a few culprits.
- Hormonal imbalances in cat
- Cat has impaired thyroid function
- Cat has a vitamin deficiency
- Digestive stress
To recognize excessive cat shedding, look for when your beautiful furry cat begins to look like a hairless breed (though we love them too), or if your couch seems to be covered in fur.
How to Reduce Your Cat's Shedding
- Essential fatty acids (Omega-3) can help to balance hormone levels and address other causes of too much shedding.
- Vitamins and antioxidant compounds like beta-carotene, bioflavonoids, vitamins C and E, selenium, and sulfur-containing amino acids, which will help to provide the nutrients needed to support all functions.
- Support the digestive process with supplemental enzymes.To make a long story short, your cat likely isn't getting enough natural enzymes in his diet. This enzyme deficiency forces him to rob enzymes from metabolic processes and burden the pancreas for the high-priority of digestion. Over time, the stress caused from this process takes its toll on your cat's coat.
