A common misconception is that cats don’t need the vet care that dogs do. Unfortunately, the tale of a cat with nine-lives is all but true. Cats can and do get sick, just like dogs. And as a kitty parent, it’s up to us to make sure they are taken care of. That being said, it is important to know when your cat is sick, as cats have proven themselves very resilient, not showing many symptoms until it’s too late. By knowing the most common signs of the most common health problems your cat may face, you could save her life.
Cancer is scary, no matter the species. Unfortunately, our little purr-balls are not exempt from this terrifying disease. There are two main types of cancer found in cats. The first is called Lymphosarcoma, and is more commonly referred to as Feline Leukemia. Feline Leukemia, while common, is thankfully tested for early on, so just about any cat you have come in contact with that has been seen by a vet has been tested for it. The chances of you owning a cat or seeing a cat come down with Leukemia is slim.
