I received the Nu-Cat vitamins today, and I noticed they have Mussels in them. Castiel seems to have reactions to seafood, so I'm wondering if this is going to affect him. Does anyone else have a seafood sensitive cat and still use these?

WF, what kind of reactions does he have? I know fish makes my cat's coats really greasy and dandruffy, so they don't get it very often, but they're OK with the vitamins. If the reaction is very mild, you  might want to just try like a quarter of a vitamin or less to see if everything is OK. You can also contact Vetriscience and ask them if they'd ever received any reports about reactions to the mussels. They might just be extracting something from them or maybe they're dehydrated and provided in a very small quantity.

Any time he gets any wet food with fish or seafood in it, he gets diarrhea. There is a bit of whitefish in the dry food that's down, and he seems ok, but I don't think he eats more than a piece or 2 of it.

Yeah, diarrhea in a still growing kitten is not good. I do know if I give my cats canned people fish (salmon, tuna) they're fine. It's just the wet cat food with fish that's a no go. Their dry has fish in it and they're OK with it. I always start out any meds or new food at the lowest amount possible just in case. When I started NuCat, I gave Katey a quarter of one on the first day, another quarter two days later, another quarter the next day, then I moved up to halves, then whole vitamins. Because she gets canned food, I don't give her more than one a day and depending on how much canned she eats, sometimes I don't give her one at all -- just her brewer's yeast tablet. You might want to start really slowly like I did and make sure you never give them anything new on days that the vet isn't open.
