I have a cat that just turned 20 this month and I was wondering if there any dietary/vitamin supplements that I should be giving her. She can really only eat can cat food because her teeth aren’t the best. She eats 2 of the smaller cans of pro-plan cat food a day. I just picked up some Welactin for cats but have yet to try it. Any suggestions on anything else I might do to keep her healthy? I might add the Vet guessed her age at 12 before I told him she was 20 last time I had her in.

There's a tube of stuff you can give her little blobs of that's high vitamins and fat, also just make sure she has lots of fresh, clean water.
Does she wake you at night?
My 18 year old cries and wants food (he has plenty of canned all day) and mostly I think he just hates to be alone in the dark , he wants me to get up and hold him.
He still has meat on his bones and plays during the day.

My old cat who lived to be 22+ loved to eat raw chicken liver. I gave her extra when I made up her raw meat diet from ground chicken (with a supplement powder). Liver is an excellent source of vitamin A and D. Some liver was in her raw meat mixture. Those two vitamins are fat-soluble ones and excess would be stored in your cat's liver (not good).

Try it to see if she likes it. I wouldn't give it more than twice a week and just one regular chicken liver. You should probably check her canned food to see if there is A and D there as supplements already.
