Signs of thiamine deficiency in cats

Problems with balance: falling and rolling over, looking for support on vertical surfaces, crouching low when walking and including seizures are signs of thiamin (thiamine) deficiency in cats. These symptoms also apply to inner ear problems such as labyrinthitis, which fall under the heading of vestibular disorders.

Thiamin deficiency can be caused by feeding your cat a lot of raw fish which contains an enzyme that destroys vitamin B1. Vitamin B1 is thiamin. Another reason is an unbalanced diet.

The cure is to immediately start a balanced diet and injections of thiamin if deemed necessary by your vet.
