Can Cats Eat Camembert?

Camembert is a type of cheese that originated from a commune in Normandy, France. The cheese is known for its rich flavour, and its soft and creamy consistency. It was originally made using raw cow’s milk, a dairy product that full-grown cats cannot digest. 

Just like cream cheese and cottage cheese, it is advisable not to give Camembert to your feline pet. Aside from the lactose content that she cannot process properly, Camembert may be high in fat and salt. In addition, be wary of giving her baked Camembert combined with other ingredients. Honey, chili, and garlic are some toxic ingredients that can affect her various organs. 

What to do if your cat accidentally eats Camembert: Your cat may not display any symptoms after eating a small bite of Camembert. However, if she ate a substantial amount, she may display digestive issues such as gas, pain, and diarrhea. 

Review all the ingredients listed on the cheese’s nutrition facts label. Go through our “can cats eat” category to check if they’re safe for your pet. At the same time, keep an eye on her over the next 24 hours. Check for changes in her eating, drinking, urinating, and pooping habits. Plus, observe for any of these poisoning symptoms: vomiting, diarrhea, salivation, difficulty in breathing, shock or collapse, twitching and fitting, skin inflammation or swelling, and depression or coma.

In summary: Feeding Camembert cheese to your cat may do her more harm than good. You’re better off giving her fresh or plainly cooked vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and legumes. But before letting your cat try anything new, always remember to get your vet’s approval.
