Suppliments and Vitamins?

Hi, I'm new to raw diet and seeing that my cat is highly allergic to just about any kind of food (chicken, duck, lamb!), I seriously need to prepare his food for him (probably going to be mostly fish, and sometimes turkey canned cat food because I can't get turkey where I'm from).

After browsing through catnutrition.org and catinfo.org, I noticed how they put many dry supplement ingredients into the mix (Vitamin A, D, E, Taurine, Salmon Oil, Natural Glandular?) and was wondering if anyone else is familiar with brands/products they use to put in their own recipe that is safe for cats.

And also, what would happen if cats overdose on these vitamins? Winter has a weak kidney and I don't want to strain said kidney, but I don't want him to be deprived of what he needs either.

Thank you in advance and sorry for sounding like such an idiot because I really don't understand half of the labels in foods (I'm trying very hard though it's not my expertise!)

I give seriously sick foster DMG Maitake Liquid Vitamins. Im not sure how this vitamin would affect the kidneys. I guess you could call the company and find out. My vet had this as part of the regimen at local shelter to boost the immune systems and fight diseases passed around at the shelter.
