Arthritis (osteoarthritis) is a very common condition that causes painful, swollen joints and makes moving around uncomfortable.
Cats spend a lot of time grooming to keep themselves clean. If you notice your cat has dandruff (dry, flaky skin) it could be a sign of a problem.
Has your cat got red, inflamed or angry looking skin? Do they have a rash? We often call these symptoms ‘dermatitis’.
If your cat has developed a big, swollen earflap, it’s most likely to be due to a condition called an aural haematoma (burst blood vessel inside the flap). Contact your vet if you notice your cat has something wrong with their ears.
Surprisingly, it’s not always easy to tell if your cat is going blind. There are many possible causes – some cause sudden blindness, some cause gradual blindness, some are treatable, some are not.
