Sick Cat

“Your Cat’s Source For Accurate Cures, Fast Pain Relief and Optimum Health”

Cats are largely independent creatures, and most of the time they can handle themselves just fine. However, at some point, a cat can become sick and will try to hide its discomfort from its owners. Like many kinds of pet diseases, common illnesses in cats are best treated if diagnosed early.

What’s Wrong With Your Cat?

These are some illnesses common in cats that you have to watch out for in your own feline friend. Some of these may be symptoms of a more serious health concern, so it’s best to detect them as soon as they start.

  • Vomiting
  • Feline Urinary Tract Diseases
  • Constipation
  • Allergies
  • Intestinal Parasites
  • Diarrhea
  • Coughing/Sneezing
  • Fleas
  • Injuries (from vehicular accidents)
  • Tapeworms
  • Eye Problems
  • Heartworms

If your cat is showing one or more of these symptoms, it’s best to take them to your vet for an immediate diagnosis.

What to Expect During a Cat Examination

Once you bring your cat to the vet, there are several things that you have to watch out for. If your cat has largely been a homebody until then, expect it to be nervous, so you may have to help calm it down if it’s not used to strangers handling it.

Here are some other suggestions to make your visit a little easier on both of you. Upon arrival at the vet, you’ll be asked some questions about your cat as well as the symptoms it is feeling. A standard fee quote should be available, with the necessary treatment charges for the examination, medications and/or vaccinations.

Your vet will then conduct a standard physical exam to cover all the basics. He or she will focus on narrowing down the possible health issues with the symptoms that you provided.

Don’t be shy to ask questions so that you and the vet are on the same page about your pet’s health. This will also allow you to take better care of your cat.

Of course, prevention is the best cure. But, if at some point your cat starts to show any of these symptoms, don’t be afraid to take it in for a quick check up. Our goal is to provide the best pet health care possible for your cat – no matter its health problem.
