Signs of Feline Illness

The March issue of San Diego Pets Magazine has a wonderful article in it written by Heidi Jeter of the Morris Animal Foundation. She lists the Subtle Signs of Feline Illnesses in an article titled,"The Science Behind Keeping Kitties Healthy". This is so important for cat owners I want to share it with you.

Jeter states: If your cat shows any of the following signs, contact your veterinarian:
  • Changes in chewing,eating, and/or drinking or litterbox habits
  • Drastic weight gain or loss
  • Withdrawal from social interaction
  • Changes in activity level, including sleeping more or hyperactivity
  • Increased vocalization
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Increased urination and/or accidents
  • Inability to urinate ( emergency situation)
  • Open-mouth breathing; rapid, shallow panting
  • Grooms less or grooms one area excessively
  • Acts out of character

Any of these could be symptoms of  health issues, that if addressed early, could possibly head off more serious illnesses. Please be alert and watch for these signs.
