Nutrition for shiny coats

Our question this week was:

What is good Nutrition for shiny coats in cats?


Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote asking – What is good Nutrition for shiny coat for cats. The best nutrition for a shiny hair coat is good nutrition. Ensure your cat is eating a premium cat food – that is formulated with good quality vitamins, minerals and protein. That is the best bet.

Grooming your cat- removing dead hair and stimulating the underlying skin can also help.

I really have come to believe that grooming and nutrition are the essential keys as well as good genetics. I think cat hair can be like people hair. Some people have beautiful silky shiny hair and others have rather dull hair. Both people may eat well and be healthy.

An article that might be helpful to you is Essentials for a Shiny Coat in Cats. This article contains some additional tips.

Best of luck!
