5 Deadly Cat Toxins

5 Deadly Cat Toxins

Did you know that cats are more susceptible to certain poisons than dogs?

Unfortunately, our feline companions are unable to effectively metabolise some substances. Their red blood cells are also very sensitive to oxidative stress. As a result of this, cats are more likely to sustain damage to their red blood cells and haemoglobin following exposure to certain poisons.

The infographic below describes 5 household items which cat owners should be particularly cautious with. We thank our platinum sponsor Bow Wow Meow for Pets for their support of the Helpline and for making this infographic possible.

If your pet has ingested something they should not have, please phone the Animal Poisons Helpline 1300 869 738 (AU) or 0800 869 738 (NZ)  for advice. The Animal Poisons Helpline provides a free service for all pet owners in Australia and New Zealand, and we can rapidly determine if your pet requires immediate veterinary assessment or can be observed at home.
