Tips for Feeding Sweet Potatoes to Your Dog

Can I Feed My Cat Sweet Potatoes?

If you're wondering if cats can eat sweet potatoes, yes they can, if they're prepared the same way that sweet potatoes are prepared for dogs. But although sweet potatoes are not toxic to cats, they should be fed to cats in very small amounts, much less than what should be fed to dogs. Cats do not digest sweet potatoes the same way that humans and dogs do, nor do they get the same benefits that sweet potatoes offer. That's because dogs are omnivores and cats are carnivores, so they process foods differently. Cats are more likely to experience weight gain and digestive issues if they eat sweet potatoes too often or in too large of a serving. In very small amounts, sweet potatoes can help with constipation in cats. But in general, unless your cat is begging for sweet potatoes, there are better treats out there for cats.
