About Cats FAQs



Can I give my cat aspirin or Tylenol?

Answer:

NEVER administer aspirin or Tylenol (acetaminophen) to a cat. Even in tiny amounts, these drugs can prove deadly to felines. Members of homes where pets live, should be vigilant with over the counter pain relievers. Accidental intoxication usually occurs after a pill is inadvertently dropped on the floor. If accidental ingestion occurs, call your cat’s veterinarian immediately.

Can I give my cat Brewer’s Yeast with Garlic to deter ticks and fleas?

Answer:

No. Ingestion of garlic can cause a condition called hemolytic anemia characterized by the bursting of red blood cells circulating through your cat’s body. Ingestion can also lead to gastroenteritis, also known as an inflammation of the stomach and intestines, causing stomach pain. Symptoms of garlic toxicity can take up to four days to appear. If you suspect your cat has ingested garlic, call your vet immediately.
