Many natural foods and supplements can be added to your cat’s diet that may provide some relief from the pain of arthritis. October 12th is World Arthritis Day, so it’s a good time to talk about this condition that affects humans and cats all year round.

Diet is especially important for cats with arthritis, as excess body fat can put more strain on joints and bones. Along with massage, acupuncture, moderate exercise, and necessary medication, certain foods can help alleviate the pain, too.

You should always consult your veterinarian to form a plan that works for your cat, including dosages of foods and supplements and how these additions to your cat’s diet might interact with medication, medical conditions, or other food. Discuss these natural remedies with your vet before making any changes.

Here are ten foods and supplements that may help cats deal with arthritis pain.
