AVMA lists 5 common cat health problems
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, common reasons for pet owners to visit a veterinarian include an injured pet, routine vaccination, to be spayed or neutered, and flea or tick medications. In 2012, the AVMA's State of Pet Health report stated that cat obesity has risen over 90 percent since 2007 and people are beginning to look at their pet food as the source of health problems. The following are five of the most common cat health problems: Obesity (Cat food that contains carbohydrates such as corn and wheat are fattening for your cat); Hyperthyroidism (The most common glandular disorder in cats, hyperthyroidism includes symptoms such as a weight loss or an increased appetite); Dental disease (Damage to a cat's gums, teeth, and tongue can led to many health risks); Skin problems (Some pet food contain known allergens, such as corn and any type of gluten which can cause skin rashes, redness, bald spots and/or dry, flaky skin); Feline lower urinary tract disease (Cats can develop FLUTD from stress, bladder infections, hyperthyroidism, or diabetes mellitus).
