Well, I had finally made up my mind to switch my cats from IAMS (corn and by-products-yuck!) to Wellness which sounded like a great food. Last night, I happened to be on a forum on Yahoo where they were talking about garlic being toxic for cats. (onions too) It can lead to "Heinz body" formation which can cause Hemolytic Anemia. I don't think this is a common thing but it can happen. I did a separate search for Hemolytic Anemia and found a reference to cats eating garlic. (cooked or raw it doesn't matter) Of course, wouldn't you know, Wellness has garlic in it. Now, I don't know what in the heck to feed my cats. I really don't want to take a chance with the garlic ingredient I don't think. Anybody feed a food with garlic and just not worry about it? Or do any of not even know about the garlic thing?
