Has your cat got red, inflamed or angry looking skin? Do they have a rash? We often call these symptoms ‘dermatitis’.
A bladder infection is also sometimes called a ‘urinary tract infection (UTI)’ or ‘bacterial cystitis’.
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.
