An aural haematoma is a blood blister that forms inside the ear flap when a blood vessel bursts. They often form because your cat has been shaking their head or scratching their ear.
A bladder infection is also sometimes called a ‘urinary tract infection (UTI)’ or ‘bacterial cystitis’.
A cat’s claws and teeth are covered in bacteria, if they bite or scratch each other it’s very likely that an infection will develop.
Conjunctivitis happens when the conjunctiva becomes inflamed and cases red, itchy, painful and weepy eyes.
While we may not expect our cats to have breath as fresh as ours, if they have really smelly breath it could be the sign of an underlying medical problem.
