7 Common Health Problems in Senior Cats

When was the last time your cat saw the veterinarian?

Research shows that only 1 in 4 cat owners feel that veterinary care is important for their cats and almost 30% of cat owners only visit the veterinarian when they think their cat is sick.

Regular preventive care is very important for our feline friends. Common problems we see in cats include kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, dental disease, arthritis and we would also include heart disease. More specifically, a condition called feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

For more information, check out this link from our friends at Vetstreet below:

All of the conditions listed are treatable and the prognosis is much better with early diagnosis. If your kitty hasn’t seen the veterinarian in over a year, please visit our center for a health check.
