What should not be fed to cats

The main mistake in feeding cats is combining dry food and homemade food. Veterinarians warn that this can lead to metabolic problems and gastrointestinal diseases.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with treating your pet to a piece of fried chicken or cheese once in a while, as an exception. It is the constant combination that is dangerous. Read about what is strictly forbidden to feed domestic cats in the OBOZREVATEL article.

Raw meat and fish

Untreated meat is the main product that can cause health problems in cats. It can contain parasites, bacteria, and pathogens. Therefore, you should not buy cuts or offal for cats, and it is recommended to avoid pork because of its excessive fat content.

Cats are often fed fish, but veterinarians do not recommend giving it to animals on a regular basis. First, raw fish contains parasites. Secondly, regular consumption of it leads to kidney problems and urolithiasis.

Eggs

We are talking about raw eggs. They are dangerous because cats can become infected with salmonella. And the biotin contained in eggs can lead to metabolic disorders.

Vegetables

Cats can be fed boiled beets, carrots, and zucchini. However, few people know that some vegetables are even poisonous to animals. These include avocados, grapes, raisins, onions, garlic, and nuts. Potatoes and legumes cause flatulence and bloating.

Sweets

Chocolate and cocoa can provoke heart and vascular diseases. In general, sweets can cause diabetes, obesity, and dental diseases.

By the way, a cat's diet should consist of at least 60% meat products, referring to boiled or baked dishes. It is useful to cook broths or cereals with the addition of stewed vegetables. When formulating the diet, please note that the animal must receive a sufficient amount of vitamins and nutrients. You can supplement the diet with pharmacy vitamins.
