Don’t give these foods to the cat.
After raising a cute kitten, in the face of its coquetry and cuteness, it is generally difficult for the owner to control himself, and he will feed it various foods involuntarily. But there are some things that cats can’t eat, and the consequences are serious. Everyone must know in advance.
- Dried small fish, seaweed, dried fish fillet
Dried fish, seaweed, and dried fish are all favorite foods for cats. They contain minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, which are important factors leading to urinary calculi in cats. Spinach and burdock contain a lot of oxalic acids, which is also easy to cause urinary calculi in cats.
If the cat is fed with liver for a long time, it is easy to suffer from walking disorder due to calcium deficiency. In addition, chicken liver is rich in vitamin A. Excessive intake of chicken liver can lead to abnormal bone development.
- Shrimp, crab, octopus
Although this kind of seafood has high protein content, long-term eating will hinder the absorption of vitamin B in the cat’s body. If the cat lacks vitamin B, it will cause loss of appetite, vomiting, spasm, unstable walking, and serious paralysis of the hind feet. Sashimi such as trout, cod, and carp can also block the absorption of vitamin B, leading to paralysis.
- Onion, leek
These vegetables contain ingredients that destroy the red blood cells of cats. They can cause anemia, diarrhea, hematuria, vomiting, and fever. In the most serious cases, they can cause the death of cats. These vegetables must not be eaten by cats at all.
- Alcoholic beverages
When a cat accidentally drinks an alcoholic beverage, the alcohol is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. In excess, it can damage brain and body cells, causing vomiting, diarrhea, dyspnea, and nervous system abnormalities. Severe cats can go into a coma or even die. If a cat drinks alcohol carelessly, the above symptoms will appear in 30-60 minutes, and the amount of alcohol consumption of 5.6ml/kg is enough to be fatal. Don’t let the cat touch any alcoholic drinks. If you accidentally spill a little, please remember to wipe it off immediately. Don’t let the cat touch it.
In addition, most people’s food cats cannot eat, after all, the life and health of cats are not trivial matters, but we still need to pay more attention.
