Digestive symptoms appear within hours of eating grapes, especially vomiting and marked nausea.Whether raw or cooked, garlic and especially onions contain sulfur compounds highly toxic to the cat causing the destruction of its red blood cells (hemolysis). The toxic dose used for the dog is 5 to 10 g of onions per kg of body weight and the cat is even more sensitive.
