Common Health Conditions
- Obesity is a common health condition in cats as a result of being overfed or the cat's diet lacks proper nutrients and vitamins.
- Cat Ear infections can be a complex issue, often cat ear infections are a secondary condition due to another pre-existing problem in your cat’s health. It is important to take your cat to a veterinarian as possible reasons include ear mites, FIV, tumors, a ruptured eardrum, tumors or other environmental irritants.
- Cats with longer coats and fur groom themselves more often and consistently and therefore are more likely to ingest their own hair. The majority of this passes right through the digestive system and is discarded through their waste, however, sometimes this hair becomes lodged in the throat or stomach and presents further complications for the cat.
