Fats are the most concentrated form of food energy, providing your cat with more than twice the energy of proteins or carbohydrates. They keep the structure of cells in shape and are needed for the production of hormones and the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Cats require fat to insulate their bodies and protect their internal organs.
Be sure to include essential fatty acids in your cat’s diet as they can’t be synthesised by cats naturally. Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid that’s vital for your cat’s skin and coat, kidney function and reproduction. Omega 3 and 6 are crucial for healing inflammation.
