No, cats shouldn’t eat grapes.
According to PetMD, “grapes can cause kidney failure in cats. And, a small amount can make a cat ill.”
They also mentioned that some cats don’t show ill effects, but even then, it’s best that you don’t take the chance and do not feed your pet cat grapes.
What to do if my cat ate grapes?
If your cat ate grapes, you should immediately contact your veterinarian. Then, try to figure out how much grapes were eaten and what types of grapes they ate. Your vet will decide a course of action from there.
Keep in mind that some cats react differently to grape toxicity than other cats do, so it’s important for your vet to know what type of grapes your cat ate.
If the diagnosis is not too serious, treatment might not be necessary and if so, it will simply be supportive care. If the grape intake was large or you think there might have been a potential for other toxins to have been consumed at the same time, then your vet may choose to induce vomiting or use other methods to prevent further absorption of the toxicants.
If treatment is needed, it can be administered via an intravenous line or orally. There are drugs that will stop the formation of bladder stones and regenerate damaged cells in the kidneys.
