Is Your Cat Companion Becoming Elderly? Here’s a Common Health Problem You Should Be Able to Spot Quite Quickly — 6 Comments

  1. Michael, great post!! I have several elderly kitties, but none fall into these categories (thank goodness). I get wellness check-ups for my *kids* once a month, so they are monitored closely. Plus, I monitor them all year long. So far, I have been very fortunate with all of my kitties’ health. My vet is truly pleased with their check-ups, and always tells me that I am doing a great job of taking the proper care for them.I will share this post, as it is a very important issue for cat owners. ♥

      • LOL!! My kitties are truly loved and adored by myself and my son Tyler. I love taking care of such PAWsome *kids*!! I do love my seniors, and all my kitties’ know I will always be her for them. They truly believe I am *Mom Cat*. . . ♥♥♥

  2. Have seen and experienced hyper a number of times.
    Yes, the price of treating can be high. But, what price can you place on the life of your sweet cat?
    The outcome, if left untreated, is more than hideous. If you can’t afford treatment, please seek financial assistance from a rescue group or rehome to someone who can handle. If all fails, please put her to rest to end the suffering.

  3. Helpful article…my 20 – year-old Maddie was diagnosed a few months ago as hyperthyroid. She’d gone from 10 to six and a half lbs. in two months. My vet has been monitoring her kidney function, and she is on a gel that can be applied to the inside of an ear to absorb through her skin. Pricey, but she’s my baby girl, and she does NOT like pills!!
