Vitamin A is essential for all vertebrates. Birth defects may occur with either deficiency or excess vitamin A. High levels of vitamin A occur in some commercial cat foods due to the use of liver. Toxicity, teratogenicity, and metabolism of vitamin A were the focus of the research. The first objective was to define a safe upper level of vitamin A for cats during gestation. It was demonstrated that a high level of vitamin A added to the diets had potential to cause birth defects in the kittens, but not toxicity in the queen. The second study examined chronic vitamin A toxicity in female cats. It was found that cats in this study consumed far more vitamin A per kg body weight and had fewer signs of toxicity than reported cases in other species. A tracer was used to investigate whether cats given diets with high levels of vitamin A had the ability to safely metabolize excess vitamin A. Cats given a high vitamin A diet were able to efficiently remove it from plasma. Pet food manufacturers should find this information useful for formulating healthy cat foods for both gestating queens and adult cats.

Clarification: Calcium Carbonate We ve had some questions from readers regarding the use of the term calcium carbonate, which is listed as an ingredient in a number of the diets found in this book, and therefore wanted to clarify what is meant by this ingredient. Baking soda comes in two forms: sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate. The sodium bicarbonate version is widely available as baking soda and is commonly used in baking, but none of the recipes in this book use it as an ingredient. The calcium carbonate version of baking soda is sometimes sold as baking soda substitute and sometimes referred to as simply baking soda. To avoid confusing sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, any time the calcium carbonate type of baking soda has been used in a diet in this book, the ingredient includes the specific term calcium carbonate. There are several manufacturers of calcium carbonate baking soda; for example, Amazon carries the Ener-G Foods product baking soda substitute. Calcium carbonate can also be sold for garden use, which is non-food-grade, so to avoid the use of the garden product in foods, the term baking soda was used in this book instead to indicate that readers should be sure to select a food-appropriate ingredient.
