    Kitty folks ...

    Any vitamin or supplement questions you'd like me to ask the vet for you? That's the theme for tomorrow's radio show, and I know some of you don't visit "General" often!

    I asked my vet about giving Fister B-vitamins, and he said they wouldn't do it, since it could be dangerous.

    Is any form of cranberries helpful for a kitty that has urinary tract problems occasionally?

    The vets said Yes, worth doing it for Isis, and no, it is not doing any good for Maya, so you can stop giving it to her!

    Randi, the vets said today that your vets are absolutely wrong, there is not only no danger in giving B-vitams to cats, it actually can do them good!

    Folks, I will email you the show segments when I get them, I promise! Katladyd, I am sorry, I didn't get a chance to ask about cranberry for kitty UTI! I will ask next time!

    Absolutely, it can do no harm, and indeed do plenty of good for them!
