Canned Tuna?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
When my kitten gets older, A year or so, Would it be safe to feed him canned tuna? The whole recall thing is making me so cautious. My old cat would eat canned tuna, He loved it. So what do you think safe, healthy? Im referring to canned tuna people would eat*.

There are people who will argue this. IMO, human tuna is OK sparingly. I wouldn't give it more than once a week, at the most. I prefer once a month. It is not nutritionally complete & can contribute to UTI issues.

What are these UTI issues?

Urinary Tract Infection. It's when a cat has an infection in its bladder. Makes it painful for them to pee. Often causes "out of the box" experiences. Sometimes, can be life-time conditions. A male cat can completely block up & possibly die.

OK....so that sounded really dramatic! Basically....its painful for the cat to pee. They have to be treated with antibiotics, and sometimes it takes more than one course of antibiotics. It stinks....I've done it multiple times with multiple cats!

I agree - human food isn't the best for animals. A bit of tuna for a treat once in awhile is OK but I wouldn't give them very much.

Canned human tuna IN WATER is okay as a occational treat ... Check out solid golds tuna as it is A OKAY for reg feeding to kitty and looks just like the human kind

These are made with real meat but have tuna as the first ingredient, even in the chicken, turkey and beef ones I buy. I have a 2 year old neutered maine coon with pretty good urine output, I also feed the uti dry purina pro plan. will this type of tuna hurt him? He eats about 4, 2.75 ounce bowls/pouches a day of the turkey/beef giblet, beef gravy or chicken/beef giblet types. Help

So this solid gold, this stuff is completely safe to feed always daily? and im sure it has nothing bad in it, and it's not effected by the recall. Do you know where its manufactured? I think i may order a couple of cans.

Tuna does nothing bad to him so far.
