    too much taurine?

    Is it possible to give your cat too much taurine (without supplementing)? For instance we know heart and thigh meat is rich in taurine, if instead of feeding chicken breast as your muscle meat you fed thighs and hearts would this be harmful?

    As far as I know taurine cannot be overdone in foods. Supplements depending if they are natural derived or synthetic could be a different thing.

    Okay that's good, I had my dad buy a bunch of chicken thighs because I wanted to get Willie some taurine rich foods but I didn't think if I could give him too much taurine since thighs are the only meat I have (except my RMBs).

    Definately a good question, and a good answer to hear! LOL

    We feed a lot of red meats here, with heart being a big staple, and I know those are rich in taurine so good to hear I am not over doing it.

    Excess Taurine breaks down in the body and is excreted; it can't be overdosed. Smile
