Finding a lump on your cat can be worrying. It’s very important to have any lumps checked by your vet and to monitor them for any changes.
Fleas live on cats, dogs and in your home. They are much more common in the summer months (April - September).
If you cat has regular episodes of cystitis with no obvious cause they may be suffering with ‘feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC)’.
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.
Ear problems can be very painful, and should always been checked by a vet. There are many different problems that can affect any one of the three main sections of a cat’s ear.
