What is the best diet or supplements for a three legged cat?

Hi,

I have a cat who lost her front right leg when she was one year old. She is now 5 and still very active. As I am typing she just flew over the back of my couch for no reason. I am wondering what you recommend as far as diet and supplements as she gets older to prevent arthritis or joint damage?

Hi, thanks for your question, what a beautiful cat!

For prevention we'd recommend adding supplements such as glucosamine and fish oil to assist your pet. Pet massages and hydrotherapy may also help.

Cold conditions can be a big factor in Arthritis for cats so keep you pet’s environment warm with soft bedding also.

Hope this helps!
