Vitamin B deficiency can be very serious. Symptoms can include gastrointestinal or neurological problems, decreased appetite, salivating, vomiting and weight loss. Call your vet and get your cat in for a check up.

If it's gone on too long you may see neurological signs
ventriflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, wobbly walking, falling, circling and seizures. Get to the ER if you see any of these.
