Feline Hepatic Lipidosis

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • Hepatic lipidosis, or fatty liver syndrome, is a very serious condition that occurs exclusively in cats, typically middle-aged, overweight kitties
  • The most common trigger for the disorder is rapid weight loss as the result of anorexia or a significant reduction in daily caloric intake
  • Symptoms include dehydration, excessive drooling, vomiting, lethargy and jaundice
  • Treatment in the form of nutritional support must be started immediately and continued for several weeks
  • To prevent hepatic lipidosis, it’s important to monitor your cat’s calorie intake on a daily basis. Call your vet if your kitty’s refusing to eat at all or his appetite has dropped off noticeably over a period of a few days
