Do you know how to spot signs exhibited by your cat that warrant an immediate trip to your veterinarian? Fortunately, not all problems need immediate veterinary attention, but some illness or symptoms are always viewed as medical emergencies.
Here are some important symptoms that should never be overlooked, and should be checked out by your vet as soon as possible:
Any distinct change in the way a cat walks. This may be caused by an injury or joint problems.
Sudden changes in the activity level of your pet; these can be attributed to depression, injury, or some other type of medical condition.
Your cat suddenly stops grooming himself and appears dirty and unkempt. Some health issues such as arthritis can significantly affect a cat’s flexibility and reaching for certain parts of the body may be painful. On the other hand, a cat may also engage in excessive or compulsive grooming. To find out more, visit this website.
