Cats need dietary taurine, but significant quantities naturally occur only in animal tissues. A shortage causes blindness and heart disease.
Most mammals biosynthesize Vitamin A from the yellow pigment (carotene) found in vegetables. Cats lack this ability, making a dietary source of this vitamin, found naturally only in animal tissues, essential. Vitamin D is another essential vitamin, found naturally only in animal tissues as D3.
The essential fatty acid Arachidonate is rare in non-animal sources. Cats require it for numerous vital metabolic processes including reproduction. Vegecat products contain the rare nutrients mentioned above derived from non-animal sources, such as D2 from yeast.
For optimum health on the vegan diet, consider adding enzymes as well to each meal. See Vegan Prozymes >>
