Common Health Conditions
- Dental problems are the most common disease that we see in cats. They can lead to bad breath, swollen and bleeding gums, loose teeth, and oral pain, and difficulty eating.
- Patellar luxation causes lameness and prevents your Russian Blue from jumping without hesitation. This is commonly known as a “slipped knee cap,” and occurs when the patella is displaced from the joint.
- Like any other breed, your Russian Blue may suffer from conjunctivitis, inflammation of the pink membrane part of the eye. This can occur in one or both eyes and is most often the result of a bacterial or viral infection.
