When to call a vet

Why you're as important as the vet to your cat's health

You know your cat better than anyone else and, if you're at all concerned, you shouldn't hesitate to pick up the phone to your vet. It's always better to be safe than sorry and no vet will mind a false alarm.

When to call the vet

Call your vet if you notice any of the following:

  • Loss of appetite

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhoea or constipation

  • Coughing, wheezing or difficulty breathing

  • Bleeding

  • Limping

  • Dirty eyes or ears

  • Lethargy, tiredness or less active

  • Excessive scratching or very red skin

  • Increased thirst

  • Difficulty passing urine

  • Crying in pain or mewing

  • Swollen legs or joints

  • Anything else that worries you.

The last of these is important.
