In our last blog, we went over two foods that many people keep around the house that are dangerous for feline consumption: bread dough and macadamia nuts. If you haven’t already read it, do so now. In this installment, we look at a few more:

Caffeine
Foods containing caffeine are toxic for our feline companions. This includes chocolate, coffee, tea, and much more. Consumption can cause diarrhea, vomiting, and heart problems. It only takes a small dose to cause death: less than one ounce per pound of body weight.

Meat scraps
Cats are carnivores, there is no denying that. Despite this, they should not be fed meat scraps from your table. The fat can cause your cat serious problems, including pancreatitis.

Chocolate, onions, grapes, sugar-free candy, dairy
We already touched on these foods extensively in our series about foods that are toxic to dogs. But, they are also very harmful and dangerous for cats as well, so we had to include them. Please take the time to read through part one and part two of our last series to get a better understanding on why these foods are harmful for pets.

Your cat is a part of the family, but that doesn’t mean they should eat all of the same things you do! There are many foods that your cat can enjoy that are safe for consumption. Make sure to thoroughly research anything before feeding it to your pet. Call us today if you need a mobile vet in Los Angeles.
