Is canned Tuna dangerous to feed to cats? I have heard that it can cause Kidney Damage!

Thank you for all your wonderful feedback, fellow cat lovers. The answer seems to fall within the concept of balance - cuz cats can become REAL tuna junkies! I have found this food called Tiki Cat Food that has a kind of tuna blend - w/ rice, ahi, crab, etc. Does anyone know about this brand?

I would greatly appreciate comments from anyone who will give me a moment.

I think it is all about moderation. A bit of canned tuna occasionally has not had any negative effects on my three healthy cats. I feed them a diet of dry cat food daily and maybe once a week or so I'll split a small can of tuna between the three of them. They love it and my vet says as long as their daily diet is cat food they will get a balanced diet.

I used to eat tuna, several times a week. I had a beautiful Siamese cat who begged every time I opened a can. Several years later she developed cancer and I had to have her put to sleep. They tell pregnant women to limit tuna. I often wonder if I had not given her tuna would this have happened? Now I feed my cats a good quality cat food which is certified organic, and does not contain any seafood.

Had a cat that got sick & thought poisoned. Poison Control Center told me to give the cat "tuna water"... He lived a long life!! The 2 I have now love tuna & on occasion, I split a can between them, but if you look at the info on can, it's usually high sodium which I think would affect the kidneys. Everything in moderation and the dry foods (look at label) start ingredients with corn & chicken byproducts. This cannot be good! So, I am working some better proteins into their diets. It's harder because they tend to be finicky, but mixed with tuna water, on occasion, they are adjusting!
