Customer Question

my cat for the second time in two months passed out after eating grass
Submitted: 1 year ago.

Hello, Kevin and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you and Pe Pe today.

Was the grass from your lawn or bought in a store, like 'cat grass?'

What happened after he passed out? Did he regain consciousness right away, did you bring him to the vet?

Is he acting normally with eating, drinking, eliminating, playing, etc., otherwise?

When was the last time this happened?

Thanks for all your additional information and after you reply, please allow me some time to read through the info, compose and send your detailed answer.

Warmest wishes,
Cher

Hello again, Kevin and thanks for your very helpful reply.

From your description of his symptoms, it's possible that your lawn or soil is being treated with a chemical that is toxic to cats or to which Pepe is allergic. He also may have an allergy to grass, itself. It's also possible that he didn't just pass out, but may have had a seizure. Here is more information about seizures in cats, but all symptoms may not be present for each instance/each cat: CLICK

If he vomited grass before passing out, the vomiting in this case, could be associated with a heart condition triggered by the vomiting, resulting in fainting.

Because this happened twice within two months, it would be a good idea to have Pepe seen by his vet for a hands-examination, blood work/urinalysis, to find out if there are any abnormalities. Also, of course, keep him off the grass and prevent him from eating it, which you already mentioned you're doing, in your initial question. If a seizure or seizure-type condition is suspected, your vet may refer you to a veterinary neurologist who wil have the specialized equipment to check him out more thoroughly.

I hope all will be well with Pepe and please let me know how he's doing and what the vet tells you. Thanks!

Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback so I get credit for my asistance, today. Thank you very much!
