Is it safe to give garlic to cats?


Answer by  katmandu (190)

NO, garlic is toxic to cats, both in the natural form and any types of food that may contain garlic or garlic powder.


Answer by  N (28)

In general, garlic pills are safe for cats in the treatment of ridding fleas, however avoid giving raw garlic cloves to your cat because it can cause mouth sores or ulcers, and in some instances can cause anemia.


Answer by  mischabear (69)

No, you shouldn't give your cat any root vegetables. They contain a substance called N-propyl disulphide, which destroys cats' red blood cells.

In my opinion the answer is no, don't give a cat garlic even though you may find that some people give it to their cats to prevent or get rid of worms and repel fleas. My cat got sick when I used it. See your vet for the best information.
