Ingredients in NuVet Plus part 22 Taurine

TAURINE - Feline formula only; canines produce their own Taurine.
Taurine is an essential dietary nutrient for cats because the rate of synthesis under most conditions is less than the rate of loss from the body. It is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body. Taurine is found in the central nervous system, skeletal muscle, and highly concentrated in the brain and heart.
Taurine therapy is used in the treatment of ischemic heart disease. Low Taurine and magnesium levels have been found after heart attacks. Supplements decrease the tendency to develop potentially lethal abnormal arrhythmia after heart attacks.
Another role played by Taurine is maintaining the correct composition of bile and solubility of cholesterol. It helps stabilize cell membranes and seems to have some antioxidant and detoxifying activity. It also helps the movement of potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium in and out of cells, which helps generate nerve impulses. Taurine is necessary for chemical reactions that produce normal vision. Deficiencies are associated with retinal degeneration and age-related cataracts.
(Again, this is in the feline formula only; canines produce their own Taurine.)
