How is pepperoni bad for cats

100 grams of pepperoni contain 1,761 milligrams of sodium, while a medium-sized cat needs just need 21 milligrams of it on a daily basis. Hence, having excessive amounts of salt in their diet might lead to adverse effect, even sodium poisoning in extreme cases. Moreover, pepperoni also contains spices and is high in calories, hence not being a healthy option for cats to have.

If your feline witnesses any abnormal symptoms after having even a small bite of pepperoni, contact your veterinarian at the earliest.
