How Can You Tell If Your Kitty Is Suffering From Joint Pain

Lethargic Cat

Cats are living creatures and in many ways, they suffer from the same ailments that affect humans too. As we age, we will find that our bones and joints become less strong. It is the same with your cat. In fact, it is quite common for senior cats to suffer from joint pain just like us, humans. But how can you tell for sure if kitty is indeed suffering in silence? Read on.

Older cats may suffer from Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease. One possible cause of this disease is excess weight, the other is of course, age.

Feline Congestive Heart Failure

Sick Cat

Congestive heart failure happens when a cat's heart fails to pump enough blood to support the entire body. Tissues in the extremities and vital organs in more severe cases are damaged as a result of the failure. This is because the blood doesn't deliver enough oxygen to support them. Overweight and senior cats are at a higher risk of having heart failure.


Know the Basics of Cat Arthritis

Pet joint pain is a common condition among elderly animals. Cats are part of the pet population that can be affected by it, including cat arthritis. Joint pain can often lead to osteoarthritis and can be caused by excess weight. For this reason it is important to feed your cat the proper diet and keep him moving.


Cats and Kidney Disease

Many people assume that an old sick cat automatically has kidney disease. This is incorrect, and my own cat (Prada's predecessor!) Humpy was living proof of it. A young cat, Humpy developed the symptoms early, and the cause was probably an inferior diet in the 2 years before he took charge of me.

In case you aren't sure why kidneys are important, they are basically the waste disposal systems of cat bodies. They eliminate toxins from the blood and also filter out waste products from the food your cat eats.
