A question we get asked a lot at Rose-Hip Vital HQ is "can my cat use Rose-Hip Vital, too?"
The answer is YES!
Our Rose-Hip Vital powders contain nothing but the ground berries of the Rosa Canina rosehip, making them a wholly natural daily multivitamin, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Being plant-based makes them safe for everybody - and every animal - to use! Even better, our rosehip powder has been found to be well tolerated with no known side effects or contraindications, making it perfectly safe to take alongside existing medication.
Our customers have been feeding Rose-Hip Vital to their pet cats for nearly ten years. If you’ve been thinking about starting your own cat on our amazing rosehip powder, read on to discover how you can get started today.

Allow us to introduce some very special guests...
Here are just a few of the wonderful cats using Rose-Hip Vital for improved joint health, a healthier coat, a happier temperament and better long-term wellbeing.
Leesey & Mini
"Her name is Mini- she’s actually a purebred feral cat that I caught as a kitten at my workplace. She doesn’t have a meow she has a broken squeak lol. We noticed- mind you while she had some weight on in winter she started to develop a limp. We were not too worried as she would still climb up ontop the garage. Over time she got to the point when she would sit at the door she would sit her her paw elevated. So I decided to take action and try Rose-Hip Vital as to a vet prescription of chemical pain killers. First 2 weeks didn’t really notice anything then big change to see her trotting along with zero limp!”
Danielle & Franklin
“I have my cat on it, it's helped his skin so much! His name is Franklin, 9 years old who was getting sore above his eyes and after having my dog on rosehip years back I knew it was perfect for Franklin and also to help ease him into his senior years. 2 months on and Franklin's skin, fur and general well-being is back to his younger days, I'll never take him off it and he loves it.”
Kriddy & Tigger
“My 19yo CAT Tigger takes this and it's made a huge difference to her arthritis and mobility.”
Ingrid & Michi
“My cat is taking it since the end of January of this year. She has dysplasia, she improved a lot after the doctor didn't give her anymore meds because my cat is so picky, she didn’t eat Rose-Hip Vital when I sprinkle in her food, so I added in her favorite food pumpkin, pumpkin is digestive so I mixed & she ate everything, it’s not hot food, it’s digestive pumpkin food, I gave her because her previous meds irritates her stomach, now she is fine, plays (wants to jump but we don’t allow her), moves her tail (before she did not move her tail); she is happy. I gave her 2 scoops per day.”
Kalindi & Timmy
“I’m beyond amazed with this product. A week ago we started Timmy on Rosehip Vital as he has arthritis in one leg from a cruciate repair and surgery a few years ago. He has been limping on that leg for years with a noticeable decline in movement recently. As a vet nurse I’m have tried all common treatment methods – Cartrophen, NSAIDS, diets for joint health. No improvement was ever seen.
Lisa & Mocha
“Our beautiful Burmese Mocha just recently passed away aged 18! He was one of the longest surviving patients at our local vet and was loved by all. The minute I noticed he was having trouble walking up and down our stairs a couple of years ago, I started giving him Rose-Hip Vital and there was an obvious improvement in his stair climbing and general movement. We ran out once and it was about a week later that I saw him struggling again. Once back on the Rose-Hip Vital it improved. An added bonus was the condition of his fur. He has a flea allergy and over the summer months he pulled at his hair on his lower back and it often looked worn and unhealthy. Rose-Hip Vital seemed to stop the itching and the fur in that area improved. This photo was only taken earlier this year and his fur condition was like when he was young. I would highly recommend giving any animal in the house Rose-Hip Vital because it’s just a great all natural supplement for them and especially if they are aging or have health and joint issues . RIP Mocha.”
“This is my rescue baby Tubsy, she came to me from the pound when she was scared and just 12 weeks old. She is half ragdoll and follows me around like a little dog, comes when called and loves to snuggle (on her terms but goes to bed when told, if only children listened like this!). She is still young and about to turn 10 next month. She is healthy joint wise but she for some reason is prone to getting a couple of UTI’s each year (yes of course we have been to the vet, she had some blood work done & kidneys tested and all great!) It appears the UTI’s are stress related. I am not sure how as she lives a pampered life with a huge scratching post, toys, cuddles, premium cat food and everything else her highness needs (I mean when I went to America a few years ago, for each state I went to I bought her a present – I am not a #crazycatlady, but I do love her!) So one of the side effects of Rose-Hip Vital is that it can improve kidney function whilst of course protecting joints, providing significant immune system support and contributing to general health and well being as well as improving coat quality and helping with any skin conditions or allergies. In addition to the UTI’s Tubsy had a little bit of dry flakey skin – I started her on Rose-Hip Vital – I started with a sprinkle and gradually worked her up to about 2/3 scoop as she is 6kg. I kept on Rose-Hip Vital for 18 months and no UTI’s – the 12 months prior she had 3! I got lazy and didn’t give to her as I forgot to get more from work and all those excuses, and 7 weeks later she got a UTI – safe to say I didn’t make that mistake again! Her dry/flakey skin has improved and her coat feels like silk. She is so soft!”
What Makes Rose-Hip Vital So Special?
Rose-Hip Vital is a unique anti-inflammatory. Because of our patented manufacturing process, our powders are the only rosehip powders on the market to have scientifically-proven anti-inflammatory benefits thanks to GOPO®, an exclusive galactolipid. GOPO® prevents the accumulation of excessive white blood cells, effectively dismantling inflammation that leads to chronic joint pain and arthritis.
Not only is Rose-Hip Vital a powerful natural anti-inflammatory, it provides protection against allergens and powerful immune support. With over 46mg of naturally-occurring vitamin C in every dose, Rose-Hip Vital is a rich source of antioxidants and antihistamines.

Rose-Hip Vital is Scientifically-Backed
At Rose-Hip Vital HQ, we care about the science behind our amazing product. Our exclusive rosehip powder has been involved in over 30 clinical trials, including 9 double-blind, placebo-controlled trials.
These trials are the reason why we can confidently tell you that our results are not only raved about in hundreds of verified testimonials – but they’re also scientifically-backed.
While trials so far have only involved humans, dogs and horses, we're hopeful this will change soon - watch this space!
How Do I Start My Cat on Rose-Hip Vital?
Starting your cat on Rose-Hip Vital is easy!
For cats under 7.5kg, we recommend our Rose-Hip Vital® with GOPO® Canine 150g tub.
All you’ll need to do is sprinkle a tiny amount of powder onto their wet food, then gradually increase this daily until you reach the recommended loading dose. It’s important to always mix with cool or room temperature food, as heat will diminish the potency of your powder. We find wet food, raw mince or canned tuna are great options.
While Rose-Hip Vital is suitable for sensitive stomachs, we believe a staggered approach helps to make your introduction even more successful.
It's always a good idea to talk to your vet first, especially if you're feeling hesitant, although it's good to know that Rose-Hip Vital is recommended by vets across Australia. You can read a letter here from Dr. Scott Bissaker BVSC who successfully used Rose-Hip Vital to treat one of his patients – a 900kg Limousin Bull!
How Much Should My Cat Take?
Rose-Hip Vital dosage is calculated according to weight. For cats we typically work from our canine dosage recommendations, which you can find here.
Our general guidelines are:
Cats under 3.5kg -
Loading dose (first 3 weeks): 1/2 scoop daily
Maintenance dose (after 3 weeks): 1/4 scoop daily
Cats 3.5kg to 7.5kg -
Loading dose (first 3 weeks): 1 scoop daily
Maintenance dose (after 3 weeks): 1/2 scoop daily
