Why should I start giving my cats supplements and what age should I start?
Supplements are usually divided into different categories or segments such as, joint support, pro-biotics, kidney support, hairball, etc. Your pet’s breed and age are the two key factors we believe you should consider when to start a supplement regimen. In cats, older breeds are prone to joint related and kidney issues. Kittens will benefit from products with ingredients that promote their proper development and maintain a healthy immune system. Whilst for cats of all ages, organ support, such as kidney supplementation can be highly beneficial. We strongly recommend that your veterinarian is aware of any supplementation at any stage of your pet’s life.

I give my cats food that contains some of the active ingredients listed in your supplements, do I still need Scruffy Paws?
Yes. None of the foods contain the researched combination of high quality ingredients in Scruffy Paws. Often the amount of said active ingredients is often minimal. Even if these diets contained high quality active ingredients, a cat would need to consume more than the daily requirement of food to obtain the amounts said ingredient found in a Scruffy Paws supplement. In addition, often the active ingredients listed in foods degrade when subjected to the heat or extreme pressure in the manufacturing process of commercial cat food.
Can I give supplements labelled for human use to my cat?

Not only that these ingredients have been shown to be safe, effective and highly bio-available in pets.
