Recall of some cat food products which may potentially be linked to Thiamine deficiency

 

You may already be aware of a recent recall of some cat food products which may potentially be linked to Thiamine deficiency. For further information on the products that have been recalled please visit the Pets at Home website or their Facebook page.

Recall of some cat food products which may potentially be linked to Thiamine deficiency

Thiamine is a component of the group of B vitamins and is only stored in the body in very small amounts, hence this vital nutrient is added to commercial pet food. Thiamine is essential for energy production in the central nervous system.

A cat with Thiamine deficiency may display some of the following symptoms:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty seeing
  • Dilated pupils
  • Tremors and seizures

If you are worried that your cat is displaying any of the above symptoms, please contact your vet as early treatment is essential for this condition.
