Toxic Foods for Cats
When it comes to feeding cats treats or human food it’s best to check with your vet first. There are some foods out there that are dangerous for cats to eat. Your vet can help you come up with a list of safe foods and foods to avoid. For example, you should keep bread dough away from your cat. The dough itself is not toxic., but the yeast in the dough can be hazardous to cats. How? You see, a cat’s stomach provides an ideal environment for swallowed yeast or dough to expand and rise. This will cause your cat’s stomach to expand which can decrease blood flow to your cat’s stomach and affect her breathing. In addition, yeast metabolizes the sugar in dough producing alcohol. The cat’s stomach could absorb the alcohol causing your cat to be intoxicated. For a list of foods to avoid click here or call your vet clinic Seminole, FL.
