Why can't cats eat raw fish?
Post Time: 2020-12-07Basically everyone has the impression that cats like to eat fish, so some people directly feed raw fish to cats. They will think that it is a happy thing for cats to enjoy fresh fish, but in fact, it is not good for cats to do so.
First of all, uncooked, raw fish will contain a component called thiaminase, which destroys the vitamin B1 in the cat’s body, making it unable to digest food and absorb the energy provided by the food. It can lead to loss of appetite, weight loss, fatigue and nervous system disorders in cats.
Secondly, raw fish meat may also contain bacteria such as Salmonella or Bacillus. After eating, cats may experience diarrhea, vomiting, or even shock.
