Can I Give My Cat Chocolate?


The answer is definite no because chocolate has methylxanthines caffeine and thebromine (concentration much higher than caffeine) which can cause toxicity in cats.  Different kinds of chocolate contain different levels. Cooking chocolate contains the highest levels of methylxanthines, followed by dark chocolate, milk chocolate and while chocolate.

The methylxanthine poisoning symptoms include vomiting, hyperactive, restlessness and frequent urination. These can progress to more symptoms include cardiac dysfunction, muscle tremors,  seizures, coma and death.
