RE: [feline-heart] Mixed Pongo News
- Here's what I know about taurine:
1) A taurine deficiency can cause severe heart problems, particularly
2) Taurine deficiency is rare in non-ferals, since all commercial cat food
now containts adequate levels of taurine (this was not true many years ago).
Lynx's cardiologist suggested that it wasn't worth worrying about, unless
your cat is eating primarily a non-cat-specific diet (e.g., people food).
(I'm not 100% sure about raw diets, but I believe that meat contains LOTS of
taurine, so there's no problem there, either.)
3) There's no harm in adding taurine to the cat's diet (check with your vet
4) If it has an affect, it would show up on ECGs.
