A prompt trip to the vet is key to solving or reducing cat health problems and maximizing cat life expectancy. The longer a health problem is left, the harder and more expensive it becomes to treat. The symptoms described below may be an early warning that something is wrong with your cat.
We all know cats sleep a lot, but if yours becomes much more lethargic compared to normal and can hardly seem to be bothered to do anything, something may well be wrong.
One of the first signs of feline illnesses is often a loss of appetite. The loss may be partial or almost complete.
Healthy cats are meticulous about grooming their fur, which is why it always looks so shiny and sleek.
A sick cat, often due to a general overall lack of energy, will reduce or even stop grooming his fur. As a result, his coat will quickly become dull, maybe have more dandruff and matted.
Any change in you cat's peeing habits may indicate cat health problems include straining, urinated outside of the box and frequent urination.
