Yes, cats can eat tilapia in moderation.
Tilapia is a freshwater fish that can be part of a cat’s diet, especially when cooked thoroughly and served plain. It provides protein and essential nutrients which are beneficial to cats.
Make sure tilapia is fully cooked to avoid harmful bacteria or parasites that may be present in raw or undercooked fish. Fish bones can pose a choking hazard or cause internal injuries, so the fish should be also boneless.
Tilapia should not be used as a substitute for cat-specific diet, although it can be given as an occasional treat. To avoid unnecessary complications, consult your veterinarian before introducing any new foods to your cat.
