Should I worry about Lead in my cat’s toys and bowls?

Our question this week was:

Dr. Debra – I know there was a huge recall on children’s toys and items because there was lead in the paint. Do I need to worry about my cat’s things?


Sarah Miller – Newport.


Hi Sarah – thanks for your email. You ask a good question. In fact, I asked one of our petplace writers to research this topic last week. Please read Toxic Toys: Is There Lead Lurking in Your Pet Supplies?

But the short answer is yes, you have reason to be concerned.

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
