Like AMODEUS, all cats older than 7 years old need to be protected from a “silent killer” called Hypertension.
As in humans, hypertension (high blood pressure) is a serious disease in cats, which can cause severe damage.
Hypertension means that blood is circulating in the vessels under excessive pressure which can cause bleeding in 4 vital organs.
In the eyes, Hypertension can cause damages which may eventually lead to sudden blindness
4 target organs can be damaged by Hypertension
Hypertension in cats can stay invisible for a long time, that's why it's often called the silent killer
Kidney disease is a common and serious disease in cats. It is often associated with Hypertension. As hypertension, it remains silent for a long time before symptoms appear. That’s why regular check ups at the veterinary clinic are essential, as Amodeus explains!
There is a very effective way to protect your cat:
regular visits to the veterinarian, and a very simple examination to measure Blood Pressure.
