Did you know that many “people foods” are poisonous to your pet cat? It often seems that cats want to share in, or are curious about, everything you do. Often they seem to feel everything you own is theirs. Still, be careful not to allow your cats to eat the following people foods, warns your veterinarian in Solomons MD. The foods could be hazardous to cat health.
Always keep human food away from your cat, unless you specifically check with your vet first. Here are some examples of common human food and beverage that can harm your cat:
If you think your cat has eaten something harmful, try to assess how much has been eaten and call your vet. Sometimes small quantities may not be dangerous and may only require monitoring at home. While other cases are emergencies. If your cat has been poisoned, your veterinarian may need to administer IV fluids, conduct blood testing (to check organ function) and/or hospitalize your pet.
For absolute pet safety, always stick to high quality cat food recommended by your vet. If your cat shows signs of food poisoning, contact us immediately. Call Solomons Veterinary Medical Center in MD at 410-326-4300 right away!
