Cats fed product without thiamine may be at risk for developing a thiamine deficiency.  Thiamine is essential for cats in maintaining normal nervous system function.  Symptoms of thiamine deficiency can be gastrointestinal or neurological in nature.  Early signs may include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss.  In advanced cases, neurological signs can develop such as ventriflexion of the net, wobbly walking, falling, circling and seizures.  Contact your veterinarian if your cat displays any of these signs.  If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency typically is reversible.
