You are your cat’s only hope that illness will be recognized in time to do something about it, so it’s important to recognize when kitty isn’t well. Things to watch for include:
If you aren’t sure your cat is sick, call me and I will help you sort it out.
If you notice any change in your cat's behavior, weight, eating or drinking, s/he may be sick
Cats are so good at hiding pain and injuries that it can be difficult to tell if your cat requires emergency treatment. As a general rule, the following list of signs and symptoms may be considered life-threatening. If you aren’t sure if your cat needs emergency treatment, call me and I’ll help you sort it out. If it is after hours and I don’t answer my phone right away, call one of the 24-hour hospitals listed below to determine if your cat needs to be seen immediately.
