Jenkins Stole Beef Roast Fat
« on: February 03, 2018, 01:05:11 PM »
I cooked the roast in the crock pot.  I added:
2 cups of beef broth,
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp of black pepper
1/2 tsp of worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp of celery salt
2 tsp table salt

Jenkins took a LARGE piece of fat and ran off with it.  We have a bed with doors under it. I leave the doors open for an extra place for the cats to go.  I couldn't get to him.  He ate the entire thing.

Should I do something?  He is walking around and acting normal... so far. 

Assuming I should watch and see... I was thinking of not feeding him lunch. 

The under bed hideout has been closed off... permanently.

I don't know how much meat/fat you started with to know approximately how much fat he ate. I'm not sure how much of a chance cats have of pancreatitis.

The spices wouldn't worry me as much as the actual fat getting digested, but then cats might be worse about onion products. Onion powder is concentrated compared to regular onions.

I think I might call a vet for advice.

I think the biggest concern with the fat would be diarrhea.

Regarding the onion powder. watch for lethargy, ataxia (loss of balance), anemia (pale gums).....I think there may be other symptoms but these would be the most obvious.

See if he wants lunch, then if he does,  maybe just some plain lean meat if you have it.

Actually...I've just been doing a little reading.

If this were me, I would call the poison control center for advice.
The number is

1-888-426-4435.  There is a fee, and you will be able to speak to a vet and be given a case number.

I am going to GUESS about 2 to 3 oz of fat.  It looked (while in his mouth) to be about meal sized.

2-3 oz. I'm now firmly on the side of a vet or this:

My worry is that the fat will have absorbed the onion powder, plus the other spices.  I would call the Animal Poison Control.

Onion is extremely toxic to cats.

I will call. 
Right now hubby is under bed looking to see if he for sure ate it or left it in a corner, that we can't see from the outside.

Onion is extremely toxic to cats.

It can cause a type of anemia in dogs. Is that what it does to cats too?

No fat in the corner. 
Poison control will know cat questions?
Catching him is going to be VERY difficult.  Remember he is the one we can only pet, and only under certain circumstances.

The Pet Poison Helpline is less expensive than the ASPCA one, and includes followup with the case.

My experience with poison control is unfortunately multiple times.  They have a huge data base to search from and knowledgeable vets on staff at all times, that's why it's so expensive.

I left a message with our raw vet.  She should call back within the hour.

ASPCA Poison Control also includes follow up.  That's why the case number.  My (multiple) experience is with them, and so they are who I recommend.

All paws crossed everything is going to be fine, for Jenkins.
