Feline obesity has become an epidemic: a staggering 53% of America’s cats are considered overweight or obese. Obesity can lead to serious health problems in cats, including diabetes and kidney failure.
Regular home-testing can help detect abnormal conditions at an early stage, enabling your cat to get timely veterinary treatment. This is especially important for cats, who are masters at disguising symptoms until an illness is often in the advanced stages, making treatment more costly, and often more complicated.
Monitoring your cat’s urination habits at home is extremely important: look for signs of straining, urination in inappropriate places, and increased or decreased frequency of urination. These symptoms can be subtle and are often overlooked, yet the underlying disease can be serious and life threatening.
