Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms for cats


Avatar n tn It is good that her blood pressure and tests done were fine. Stroke symptoms typically start suddenly and in most cases do not progress. This could indeed be age-related, but if it persists, you may need to have this checked for proper management. Take care and regards.
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.

I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system.
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional.

Avatar f tn My 17 yr. old male cat starting showing some strange symptoms recently, and rather suddenly. He stopped going up and down stairs, stopped getting on the furniture, seems to have weakness or lack of coordination in his hind legs, paces, does not meow, purr or groom. We took him to the vet and after an examination the vet felt he had high blood pressure and that he appeared blind. She could not get his eyes to respond to light. She put him on medication and took blood and urine samples.
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
Avatar m tn It's summer and in Texas that means 90s and above. My three cats live on my back porch (screened in). I noticed my youngest cat was drooling and panting. Concerned, I let her into the house. After about an hour and some cold water, she was fine. Could it have been heat stroke? To prevent it I've been letting the cats stay inside during the day and making sure they have cold water to drink. Any other tips or advice?
Avatar f tn my cat had a stroke yesterday i took her to our vet and was told she could pull through how likly is this?????
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 n tn Hi Deb and welcome. I googled *Tia* and see this is like a prelude to a stroke. I don't think anyone here would be able to tell you for sure what's going on with your girl. We are just members like yourself. Could have been a seizure, I suppose, but hard to say. Try not to panic until you know what's wrong. Oh, and be sure to syringe some food and water if she's not eating. Please let us know the outcome and how your girl is doing tomorrow. Good luck!

Avatar f tn I'm up in MN visiting relatives this weekend. I went over to Heide's...the home of 3 cats. After being in her apartment and enjoying the company of Mitze for half an hour or so, I had to whip out the Benadryl because I was getting nasal congestion. After about an hour and a half my asthma started acting up so I had to use my rescue inhaler. Meds held me over until I left. My cat allergy isn't cured, but I'm much, much more tolerant of cats.
Avatar f tn Thinking I had a stroke or anurysm or something.
Avatar f tn 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.
745759 tn?1232870315 Today i find out i have had a stroke some time between DEC 8th mri and DEC 30th mri and that kinda scared me and now they say also that an angiogram might be masked for results cause dr put me on the steroids started givimg me blood thinners did a trans echo cardiogram with bubble test
Avatar f tn This research was, obviously, for stroke prevention and treatment.
1649704 tn?1402778437 I lost him two years ago when he left one day and never returned. I was heartbroken and looked for him for weeks. Even though he was fast, big, and strong, I supposed that a wild animal may have gotten him. At the time I lived in a very rural area inhabited by Panthers, Bobcats, Wolves, and Coyotes...Mokittys' mother was a wild barn cat. For a long time, she would never let me approach her. I began leaving food for her in the yard, then on the steps, and then on my porch.
Avatar f tn You should also wear gloves while gardening to prevent any contamination from parasites spread by feral cats. Interestingly, cats only shed the parasite for a very limited time after they contract toxoplasmosis. You can contract toxoplasmosis from eating undercooked meat or by not thoroughly cleaning utensils and surfaces that were in contact with the contaminated meat. There have been some cases of infection from blood transfusions. Good luck...
2175879 tn?1338355028 That explains atleast for me, why although my symptoms have improved but not gone away like a TIA is expected to. Reading all these questions on TIA sure helped me deal with this, but I think that there are other people that have had strokes and been labled as TIA's because, just like me, the stroke fixed itself, but has left its footprint.
207091 tn?1337709493 Hi, I'm not really sure what the symptoms could be, but I honestly don't think it's seizures or a stroke. Seizures you would've noticed twitching and loss of bowel or urinary control. A stroke would've affected one side of the body only, and she wouldn't have recovered so quickly. This could be a thyroid problem, or diabetes. You can try taking her food away for 6-8 hrs so she'll be ready to get tested for diabetes as soon as you get to the vet's office.
350555 tn?1196587877 Well, I feel like I have symptoms of a stroke. Today my left side of my face and my left hand and fingers feel like they are tingling. More like pins and needles. I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....
