Are guavas toxic to cats?

It’s a common question we get here at the vet’s office And the answer is.maybe?

Guavas (Psidium guajava) are a tropical fruit that grow on trees. The skin and flesh of the fruit are edible, and the seeds can be used to make tea. Guavas are sometimes fed to cats as a treat, but there is some debate about whether or not they are safe for our feline friends.

The main concern with feeding guavas to cats is the seeds. These small, hard seeds can be a choking hazard, and if swallowed, they could potentially block the intestines. Some people believe that the seeds contain a toxic substance that can cause vomiting and diarrhea in cats. However, there is no scientific evidence to support this claim.

As long as the seeds are removed, guavas are generally considered to be safe for cats. The flesh of the fruit is rich in vitamins A and C, and can be a healthy treat for your kitty. Just be sure to offer it in moderation, as too much of any fruit can cause stomach upset in cats.
