This is a list of some symptoms that could indicate that your cat may be unwell:
- Loss of appetite
- Excessive thirst
- Sudden loss of weight
- Mucus from nose or eyes
- Excessive panting
- Unusual aggression
- Difficulty walking.
By the time your cat is displaying noticeable symptoms that something is wrong, it’s likely that the problem has existed for a while.
When it comes to caring for a sick cat – take it to the vet as soon as possible when something is not quite right.
It is better to pay for an office visit and be on the safe side then to wait and then be faced with huge vet bills or, much worse, the loss of your beloved pet.
If your cat has diarrhoea or is vomiting, but it goes away after one day, then a vet visit may not be needed. Observe your cat carefully and if the symptoms continue longer than 24 hours, or if they go away and come back, then you should take your cat to the vet.
