Stroke signs in cats

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke signs in cats


Avatar f tn I am so sorry you are going through this with your kitty! Until you are able to get her to the vet, you are going to need to make sure she keeps eating, even if you have to force feed her. She needs to maintain her strength, but with cats, if they stop eating, they are prone to developing feline hepatic lipidosis or fatty liver disease. Some cats can go without eating for quite a long time without developing this, others develop it after not eating for as little as three days.

Avatar n tn hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), hypertension (high blood pressure), seizure activity, heart problems are all symptoms of stroke in cats.
Avatar m tn This all started when I took in 2 kittens from a lady who has passed them around to a few houses trying to get a cat to nurse them. My cats did so I kept them. There were no signs because their eyes were still shut. Now that they have opened the two I took in have it the worst and online it says its from being to a lot of different homes with different bacteria. I cant loose my two momma cats or have them wind up blind PLEASE HELP I CANT AFFORD A VET!!
Avatar n tn She was just paralyzed from the waist down. No signs of pain or injury. She is a healthy 11 year old cat otherwise. No signs of a stroke (eyes not dilated, pulse normal, temp normal, etc.) I can't afford to take her to get an MRI done or surgery, plus at her age...not sure if it would benefit her. She pulls herself along well with her front feet. I am just so worried that if she doesn't get better, I may have to put her down. This is no way to live. She is normally a very friendly cat.
Avatar n tn From your description, I now believe one of my childhood cats must of had a stroke.
Avatar f tn We thought she just went to sleep in the shade and died from something like a stroke or heart attack. We at the time had a stray dog that later killed one of our young cats, Shadow. No marks, no punctures...he evidently shook her. We have since thought that might have happened to our precious Masena as well. With cats, don't trust dogs until you are sure you can.
Avatar m tn herself by pushing her backside up when we try to stroke her. She goes into the position she would when mating. She is wanting to go outside at night, which we have tried not to do, as we have 2 rescue cats which we keep inside at night. Our other cat is male and gives her a hard time by jumping on her which hurts her as he is 6.6 kg and she is only 4.2 kg. Could she be giving off a scent we can't smell? He doesn't try to mount her, but she rejects his 'playfulness.

Avatar f tn s Office not long ago and was in good signs of anything being wrong (by exam and blood work - check up). However, this just began over the weekend. It is very strange. Any ideas why he would be doing this? There are other cats outside living between our house and the neighbors. We feed them. Cats seem to find our house (they must talk to each other and let each other know we are nice and will feed them, even if we go broke). Thanks ahead of time.
Avatar m tn Two days after my cat had teeth removed he became partley blind and he just keeps walking and walking. Had him back to the vet and he may have had a stroke. He does eat his food but continues to keep Walking all the time. I feel that it would be best to put him down. We had him for 12yrs. And it would not be fair to keep him in his state. I feel it is the right thing to do. He is the last of three cats we had and two were put down.
Avatar n tn My baby had a stroke prior to or at birth that affected her right frontal lobe and right temportal lobe. At 6 months, she appears to have no outward signs of the stroke. From what I've read, some of the damage of the stroke may not be seen until later. Does anyone else have a child like mine? What did you find over time.
Avatar m tn At your cats age, if this is a new problem, he is probably ill. My last cat, was a good cat all his life until he started having litter box issues. Eventually he died from a large tumor that was affecting his being able to urinate. He also had a neurological problem that may have contributed to this behavior. Old age stuff. Observe your cat to see if there are any other signs of change. It may be the beginning of the end.
Avatar m tn Don't lissten to negative talkers! I'm 58, had a stroke (see old forum post by Choobie) and am STILL recovering in small ways. Everyone thinks I'm fully recovered, but I still don't have all the feeling in my left foot/ parts of lower leg and will NEVER give up. I still do tons of physical and mental therapy/exercises and I have friends still improving after 6+ years. I strongly recommend reading Jill Bolt Taylor's book, MY STROKE OF INSIGHT.
691463 tn?1227419054 we have an elderly cat of 17, he is suddenely much more lethargic than usual, as if in a daze and drooling heavily, we wonder if he may have had a stroke, he experienced something like a seizure couple of weeks ago.
Avatar f tn There are signs there that ask people not to remove the cats, that they are working cats. There are no rats in this famous botanical garden. Also, no dangerous poisons to kill rodents (and people). A cat is not a person. A cat is a fine hunter. He should live the life he was designed for. If allowed to, he is man's friend.
Avatar f tn My 9 yr old cat suddenly has a difference in the size of his pupils. He is eating and acting ok so far. I have noticed alot of twitching in his tail when he is resting. Anyone else experienced this?
Avatar n tn My husband was out all day on a boat in the sun, when he came back home he was seeing a large brown spot in his vision the size of about a 25cent coin, he does wear glasses and he did not have them on when he was out in the boat, could this be a migrane coming on, or signs of a stroke, or simply the cause of over exposure in the sunlight out on water? he does not have any other physical ailments and he is feeling fine except for his vision.
Avatar f tn I found her some hours after the stroke--not sure how many, and she was treated in a stroke unit but is now in an ordinary nursing home with rehab services. Bleeding had stopped on its own by the morning after the stroke, so no attempt to drain off excess blook from the brain was made.
Avatar n tn m really at a loss that all this happened so quickly. Could we have missed warning signs? Once they put a breathing tube in him, did the hospital feel that he wasn't going to make it?
Avatar m tn If you fear or suspect stroke in any way, please immediately seek emergency care. Some time has passed so we hope you are well. Here is an article that discusses the warning signs of stroke: F: face dropping A. arm weakness S. speech difficulty T. Time to call 911 That's an easy way to remember when to get help. Time is of the essence with stroke. Please report back if you were able to see a doctor. Be well.
Avatar f tn Hi there and welcome to MedHelp!! It sounds to me like you possibly might be having the signs of a stroke. Many of the signs to look for in strokes are; Numbness on the left side of your body, feeling constantly tired, word displacement, and the list goes on. If i were you, even though you are still very young, i would consult a doctor about it all and ask them about having strokes at such an early age. Its very rare but it has been known to happen. I'm here if you need anyone to talk to.
