Poor Cat Health

It is important that all cat owners take the health of their cat seriously. Cats cannot tell you if something is wrong with them, therefore you must be aware. Below is a list of the five top indicators of poor cat health.

Monitor Behaviour

You know your own cat and should be able to notice if they begin acting a little differently. So if your cat suddenly becomes withdrawn where it is usually quite sociable, this is a good sign that something could be wrong. Other telltale signs can be if they are meowing more than usual, or whining during the night.

Losing Weight

If you cat loses weight either gradually or rapidly, this can be a symptom of poor health. Whilst it could indicate one of several illnesses, it is often a sign of liver problems.

Coat and Skin

In the event that you find one of more lumps on your cat’s skin you should have a vet take a look immediately. They could be ticks, with larger lumps perhaps being abnormal growths. A patchy or matted coat on your cat can also indicate that it has underlying health problems.

Toilet Habits

In the event that a cat that is well trained in its toilet practice begins urinating throughout the house it can indicate that it has feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD). This is a painful inflammation that can in some cases be fatal. Another sign of FLUTD is if your cat is continually licking its genitals.

Further Visual Indicators

There are several visual indicators that you should watch out for. A sinus infection or cold is often the problem if your cat looks as though it is crying. These two conditions can also lead to excessive nose discharge. Another sign of poor cat health if dark brown ear wax builds up. Whilst this guide should help you sport health issues in your cat, it is by no means extensive and you should always contact your vet to get a proper diagnosis.
