What you need to know about the feline liver.
The Feline Liver Has Low Tolerance To Toxins and is just another reason why you need to get them blood work every year and sooner from ages of 12 up….
Many substances are especially toxic to cats because their liver has a low capacity to metabolize. To repeat what our local vet Dr. Patrick Reeves stated, “Cats have a very low tolerance to toxins. If you give a Tylenol to a cat they are dead in 30 minutes. Not so for a dog.” As John K. Dunn states in his Textbook of Small Animal Medicine, “toxic side effects develop more easily in cats in cases of overdoses of toxins from plastic and other toxins, or reduced liver function.”
