Cat health issues that are often overlooked


Fat cats may look happy, but obesity can severely shorten their lives.

Cats have a reputation as low-maintenance pets, but this is unfortunately not true. The truth is that rather than being self-sufficient, cats are simply very good at hiding signs of illness.

Here are some serious health problems that cat owners often miss:

  • Obesity: although fat cats may look happy and cuddly, excess weight can severely shorten their lives, and contribute to the development of other serious diseases.
  • Hyperthyroid: the overproduction of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland can increase your cat’s energy level, but at the expense of his or her long term health.
  • Urinary tract infection: if your cat is missing his or her litter box, it may not be on purpose and could be a result of health issues.
  • Dental disease: symptoms may not be as obvious with cats as with dogs, again because cats are so good at hiding signs of pain.
  • Arthritis: even if the signs of aching joints are subtle, your older feline friend may be suffering from pain that can be treated.

    It’s essential that you are tracking how many calories you take in each
    day because that will make a very large difference in how
    quickly you’ll be able to get yourself a flat stomach.

    But because of this article we have been emphasizing foods that
    a lot of people automatically consider after they
    think protein or protein rich foods. So make
    small plans in addition to being you keep on achieving it then set medium to
    bigger goals. Making a short lived sacrifice is not going to
    permanently solve a problem.
