Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • My kitten seems healthy, but I was wondering if she is getting all the vitamins she needs. Should I be giving my kitten vitamins?

    If your kitten is on a complete and balanced diet, then that diet should provide all the nutrients that your pet needs for good, overall health. Adding a kitten vitamin or mineral supplement to the diet may actually create an imbalance in the diet and can be harmful to your kitten.

    The proper balance of vitamins and minerals in your kitten's food should be provided by any high-quality kitten food you find for your pet. If you want more help in choosing the right diet and understanding the nutritional needs of your pet, visit our Nutrition Hub or discuss your kitten's unique needs with your local veterinarian
