What do you think about spray vitamins on cat food?

Our question this week was:

Dr. Debra, What do you think about vitamins on cat food. I spray 3 sprays of vitamins on my cat’s food each day. I do feed them fairly good food, but I believe the vitamins help their overall health, and provide something that the food may lack. Your thoughts please

Hi Polly – thanks for your email. You wrote that you use spray on vitamins on your cat’s food every day. I think if the vitamins are from a reputable company – they should be fine.

If you are feeding a good quality premium cat food – I don’t think it is necessary to use supplemental vitamins. If you are not – then vitamins are a good idea.

Best of luck!
