Salmon a Nutritional Superstar for Cats

By Alison_wood @midnight_eden

Salmon a Nutritional Superstar for CatsSalmon is a nutritional superstar, containing many vitamins and minerals, as well as a wealth of protein. However, did you know that cat food with salmon can be beneficial to your feline friend? It’s true. Cats need many of the same dietary nutrients as humans, and there are many convenient ways to incorporate salmon for cats into your pet’s diet for many of the same benefits.

A Bounty of Beneficial Fats

Essential fatty acids found in Salmon, like Omega-3 and Omega-6, are great for both cats and humans. They can protect against diseases, specifically those of the heart. These fats are polyunsaturated, which means that they do not clog arteries or cause other complications like saturated fats do. They promote healthy skin and joints, which your cat needs to be active. With well-cushioned and lubricated joints, your cat can pounce, jump, run and stand on his or her hind legs quickly and easily well into his or her senior years. Companies like Whiskas make Wildside Salmon Treats for Cats, which you can begin to incorporate to see if your cat enjoys the flavor of this healthy fish.

The Plethora of Protein for Maximum Energy

Cats are extremely active, and as such, they need a lot of protein to stay energized and sprightly. Indoor and outdoor cats alike need a food that includes real, lean meats, such as salmon, as a first ingredient. Your cat loves to run, climb trees, play games, and explore; this requires many grams of quality protein daily. Many pouch meals are formulated with big chunks of real salmon or tuna and lots of natural juices for extra flavor. In addition, they are made with nutritional guidelines in mind established by the AAFCO, or Association of American Feed Control Officials, so you know that they will both fulfill your cat’s nutritional needs as well as give him a treat in terms of great flavor.

A Myriad of Necessary Vitamins and Minerals

Salmon contains many other ingredients that both humans and cats need, too. Some of these include the following:

  • Riboflavin

(This promotes healthy skin, healthy fats, and carbohydrate breakdown.)

  • Vitamin B12

(This promotes nervous system health as well as skin, red blood cell and tissue growth.)

  • Vitamin D

(This helps you and your pet absorb calcium for great teeth and bones.)

  • Calcium
  • Fluoride
  • Selenium
  • And more!

All of the above ingredients work together to give you and your kitty healthy bodies.

You can get your cat food that incorporates real salmon in a variety of forms: dry, wet, treats or a combination of crunchy and chewy formulas. It is good to vary your pet’s food so that your furry friend experiences different textures and the benefits that each type of food provides.
