Old Age is Not a Disease
By Tamara Powell, DVM
Just like dogs, many cats may develop medical conditions as they age. Some may be aggresive, but fortunately, many of these conditions can be managed well with appropriate therapy. Keep in mind that therapy does not always mean medication administration -- often that may be necessary, but, in many cases, there may be other options, such as dietary or nutritional management.
A few of the most common diseases that occur in aging cats are:
- Kidney disease
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Intestinal problems
