Chocolate Toxicity in Cats?

Chocolate Toxicity in Cats?
Cats, and especially kittens, are known for eating things they are not supposed to. This can be a dangerous combination when there is chocolate around.

Chocolate is derived from the roasted seeds of Theobroma cacao, which contains certain properties that can be toxic to cats: caffeine and theobromine. When ingested, these two ingredients can lead to various medical complications and may even prove fatal for your cat.

Symptoms and Types

Diagnosis

Your veterinarian will perform a complete physical exam, including a chemical blood profile, an electrolyte panel, and a urinalysis. These tests will help determine if there is a chocolate/caffeine overdose.
