Hazards Lurking in Your Cat’s Medicine Cabinet

A common toxicity that we see as veterinarians is a cat that has gotten into or was given dangerous medications. While many human drugs can be safely administered to cats, overdoses can be dangerous or deadly.

So which drugs are the common ones that cats get into?

Here are our top five dangerous medications to cats:


Ibuprofen (or many similar drugs such as Aleve)


Tylenol and/or Tylenol-containing drugs

Another pet’s medication

If your cat does eat a pill that he or she is not the intended recipient of, call your veterinarian or local veterinary emergency clinic immediately.
