What Can I Do if I Think My Cat Has an Orthopedic Condition?
While they may not be as evident as orthopedic conditions in dogs, cats can develop a variety of orthopedic issues. If you notice your cat is moving differently or acting strangely, you should act quickly. Early detection and prompt treatment are the keys to improving the chances of treatment success. If you suspect an issue, see your veterinarian right away for diagnosis and treatment.
What Are the Most Common Feline Orthopedic Conditions?
Fortunately, some common feline orthopedic ailments, including minor sprains, can often heal on their own with time. Other orthopedic conditions are more severe and can cause pain and mobility issues which will reduce your pet’s quality of life. Regardless of the condition, it is important to see your vet in order to determine what is best for your cat.
Some of the common orthopedic issues we see and treat in cats are:
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Hip Dysplasia
- Tendon Contracture
