Chocolate contains a substance called ‘theobromine’ which is toxic to dogs and cats. It’s similar to caffeine and can cause problems with the nervous system, bowels, kidneys and heart.
Your cat’s kidneys filter out waste products from their body and put them into urine for your cat to pee away. If their kidneys aren’t working properly these waste products build up in the body and cause illness.
Colitis is when the colon gets inflamed. Most dogs get colitis once, recover quickly and never suffer with it again.
Conjunctivitis happens when the conjunctiva becomes inflamed and cases red, itchy, painful and weepy eyes.
Conjunctivitis is a symptom not a condition. It means inflammation (swelling) of the ‘conjunctiva’. Conjunctivitis can be caused by many different conditions but nearly always causes red, itchy, weepy eyes.
