1,What is taurine
is a type of amino acid, which are the building blocks of all proteins. taurine
is exclusively found in animal-based proteins. It is critical for normal vision, digestion, heart muscle function, to maintain normal pregnancy and fetal development, and to maintain a healthy immune system. taurine
is an essential amino acid in the cat.
2,What happens if taurine
levels are deficient?
Clinical signs of taurine
deficiency are slow to develop. It can take several months before symptoms become apparent, depending on the cat's life stage.
levels are deficient, the retinal cells of the eyes will eventually degenerate, impairing the vision. This condition is referred to as feline taurine
retinopathy, or more commonly, feline central retinal degeneration (FCRD). Deficiency of taurine
will also lead to a weakening of the muscle cells in the heart, causing a condition called dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). See the handouts “Dilated Cardiomyopathy in Dogs” and “Cardiomyopathy in Cats” for more information. taurine
is a component of bile salts, and its deficiency may cause digestive disturbances.
3,The Importance of taurine
in Cat Food
is supplemented in dry and canned cat foods to ensure that we provide optimal levels of this essential nutrient. wet cat foods are supplemented with taurine
because they must contain as much as twice the amount of taurine
found in dry food for cats to maintain adequate blood taurine
levels. The canning process may affect the complex taurine
balance in your cat. Our wet cat foods are supplemented with taurine
to meet these higher needs.
