Taurine is a sulphurous amino acid with important functions in the central nervous system and during development. Taurine also contributes towards the control of the body temperature and the retention of good eyesight. A taurine deficit can have severe consequences on cats. The risk of a deficit results if cats are fed self-prepared feed (BARF), dog food or are fed mainly plant-based products. In certain cases, dogs may also require a nutritional supplement to their feed containing taurine. Feeding dogs with deep-frozen food or with a high proportion of plant-based proteins, for example, will mean that they require more taurine. In the case of large dogs, a taurine supplement in support of cardiac function is recommended.
