Raw Foods — As with humans, cats and dogs are susceptible to food poisoning from ingesting raw foods, be it meat, fish or eggs. Uncooked products also contain enzymes that can stop certain B vitamins from being absorbed, affecting your pet’s coat as well as potentially causing neurological damage in cats. As a rule of thumb, ensure all food is thoroughly cooked before serving.
