My cat licked some chocolate – Will he be okay?

Our question this week was:

Dr. Debra – My cat licked some chocolate off of a snickers bar – that was part of Halloween candy that we were going to give out. I know chocolate is toxic to dogs but I wasn’t sure about cats. Will he be okay?

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote that your cat licked some chocolate and wonder if he will be okay. Yes, he should be fine. An article that might be helpful to you is Is chocolate bad for cats?

Best of luck!
