Most consumers are satisfied with the results of feeding AvoDerm brand foods to their cats. The ingredients in the dry cat food formulas are easily identifiable, which is helpful when dealing with a cat with food allergies. However, some sources claim that the avocado meal that AvoDerm uses in all of their cat food formulas contain a potentially toxic substance called persin.

    I started feeding my cats Avoderm cat food a few months ago. They absolutely love the food and many people have commented on how healthy their coats and teeth are. Even my vet is impressed with the health of my three cats.

    My only issue is when I bring home a new bag I have to lock it away or they will eat through the bag to get it immediately. I have made this mistake a few times and had to scoop up a few pounds of cat food off the floor.

    I used Avoderm Cat and Kitten canned food for my most recent litter and my oldest cats, all of which became extremely ill with gastrointestinal distress. After many hours at the vet’s office all 4 kittens died one by one in a 5 week period. My eldest cats are better now but still having problems. Once I realized the cause of the diarrhea I immediately stopped feeding them the food but it was just too late. The healthier middle aged cats dealt with it ok. Too many parts of the avocado plant are poisonous to animals for mistakes to happen. It was all very distressing to me.
