Cats fed diets low in thiamine for several weeks may be at risk for developing a thiamine deficiency. Thiamine is essential for cats.

The symptoms of a thiamine deficiency in cat can be gastrointestinal or neurological in nature. Early symptoms of thiamine deficiency may include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting, failure to grow, and weight loss.

In severe cases of thiamine deficiency, neurological signs can develop, which include downward bending of the neck, mental dullness, blindness, wobbly walking, circling, falling, seizures, and sudden death.

For more information, call the manufacturer at 1-888-569-6828, Monday through Friday, between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM ET.
