Cats: Treats vs. Poison
As you know, we work very hard to bring you the latest updates on anything that could impact your pet’s health, particularly when it comes to foods.
A cat’s digestive system is very complex. They lack specific enzymes to properly process foods that you and I would find easy to digest. Cats are obligate carnivores and must receive a percentage of protein in their diet every day. In fact, many cats do incredibly well on a raw diet because of this difference.
Recently, VetMedic asked us to help us send this informative graphic out to you and we thought it was a great idea for all of our readers to have this pinned to their refrigerator! Read on for a fun and informative info-graphic that clearly shows what types of “people food” and “table scraps” are safe for your cats, and which ones you should avoid completely!
We also take a moment to explain how to choose a bone that your cat can gnaw on during the day. As you know, gnawing promotes healthy teeth and gums (particularly important during Pet Dental Month!
Please share. That’s how we get information out and how we can educate others about safe foods for cats.
