  • Vitamin B12, E, D3 and A
  • Thiamine and niacine

Taurine for Cats

Taurine is another ingredient included in Hill's prescription pet food in Richmond. An essential amino acid vital to a cat's heart, vision and reproductive systems, taurine cannot be naturally produced by cats in amounts needed to maintain a domestic cat's health. Hill's also carries kitten food that provides developing kittens with nutrients like DHA, a fatty acid important in supporting nervous system health. Dry and wet kitten food is also ideal for nursing or pregnant cats to eat as well.

Thiamine and Niacin for Dogs

Thiamine/niacin deficiency in dogs can cause a variety of medical issues that are often misdiagnosed and wrongly treated. Possible signs of canine thiamine deficiency include weight loss, lethargy, behavioral problems, vomiting and rapid heart rate.s
