Dr. Debra – Is chocolate bad for cats?

Hi – thanks for your email. Your question was – is chocolate bad for cats? The answer is yes – especially baking chocolate. However most cats don’t over-eat chocolate the way dogs do.

Don’t feed your dog or cat chocolate. For more information about toxicity, go to Chocolate Toxicity. The article is written for dogs but the same principles apply for cats.

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
