How To Know If Your Cat Is Sick

Do you know the warning signs when your cat is sick? How do cats tell us when they aren't  feeling well? Cats hide their pain as a survival instinct and it isn't always easy to tell when they are sick. Here are some warning signs that your cat may need to see the vet:

1) Stops eating.
2) Pees or poops outside the litter box.
3) Vomits several times in one day.
4) Pants or is open mouth breathing.
5) Hides for more than a day.
6) Increases their water intake.
7) Strains to urinate.

These behaviors can signal that something isn't right with your kitty. It can be hard to know if your kitty is sick especially if nothing else appears to be wrong. But if you notice any of these signs, please contact your vet. For more pet nutrition tips, please visit our Pet Health Center.
