Controlled Portion Sizes

Omega-3 Fatty Acids for Healthy Coat and Skin
Known for having luxurious and semi-long fur, incorporating omega-3 fatty acids into your Maine Coon’s diet can help maintain a healthy coat and skin. Consider adding fish oil supplements or including fish like salmon in their meals, as they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. For an easy way to get your cat omega-3 fatty acids, our Hand Packed Catch of the Day is perfect for cats of all age, with omega 3 and 6 from a natural source.
Mind the Calcium and Phosphorus Ratio
Maine Coons are prone to skeletal issues such as hip dysplasia. Ensure their diet contains appropriate levels of calcium and phosphorus to maintain a balanced ratio to support their bone health. Consult your veterinarian to determine the ideal ratio for your Maine Coon.
Hydration is Key
Proper hydration is crucial for the overall health of your Maine Coon. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Some Maine Coons prefer running water, so using a pet water fountain can encourage them to drink more.
