My cat suffers badly from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Help please. — 4 Comments

  1. If Valerie reads this, I’m sorry for the struggle you’ve been through for your cat. I understand the frustration about trying to work with vets who are more interested in preserving their image of superiority over their clients than working with them and perhaps learning something new. It’s a difficult field to be in, but they need not make it harder by doing that.

  2. Salmon and sardines are a good source of vitamin D as well as a host of other vitamins and nutrients which the cat sorely needs being somewhat run down. These tasty fish will also perk up his appetite. She can also try mashing salmon and sardines with some of his dry or canned food with a little extra water added. Vitamin D is actually scarce in food. Cod liver oil should be avoided because it has an enormous amount of vitamin A and will damage a cat’s health. Most cheeses have little vitamin D but Swiss, Ricotta, and processed cheese have a useful amount. Cheese is alright for cats because most of the lactose has been removed during it’s manufacture.
