A poor diet can cause digestive problems in cats... That's why I decided to share with you the appropriate dietary advice that will help your cat to have a good digestion. Here are cat foods to avoid:
We made a list of common foods that will provoke side effects in your cat. Here are some pitfalls to avoid:
- Milk: Cat's don't digeste milk completely, which can cause digestive disorders and diarrhea.
Hint: If your cat really likes milk, put a few drops in a bowl of water for taste and color.
- Chocolate: It can be harmful to your cat (and animals in general). Cocoa contains theobromine which passes quickly into the bloodstream of your pet and is very toxic for them.
- Salt: Absorbed in large quantities it can cause electrolyte imbalance and can result in cardiac arrhythmias or seizures or even kidney damage.
- Canned fish: It is well known that cats are fond of fish, but they should not eat canned fish (especially tuna). Canned fish can cause serious heart problems. For information, canned tuna does not contain enough calcium and too much phosphorus, and it is also very salty (see item 3) which promotes kidney damage and can lead to heart problems.
- Raw eggs: They contain a protein that prevents your cat's body from absorbing vitamins of group B. They can cause dermatitis, hair loss and neurological disorders.
You can use supplements to help rebalance the digestive system of your cat (except against-indicated by your veterinarian).
If, despite all these tips your cat does not feel better, do not delay and consult a veterinarian, diarrhea and vomiting can quickly dehydrate your cat.
