Feline Diseases

Firstly, and most importantly, I want to stress that veterinary advice is imperative when your feline companion is not well – don’t ever let the internet substitute for a vet’s years of training and experience.

But do keep in mind that vets’ experience varies – and always seek a second opinion if you’re not sure. For example, there’s lots of misinformation around about FIV and FeLV and there are a surprising number of vets who don’t realise that positive cats can live healthy lives for several years.

I’ve included these pages simply to highlight issues around the various feline diseases I’ve come across and to share the learning experiences. So, I’m not going to attempt a comprehensive list of feline diseases here – there are plenty sites who already do so (eg. see our listings).
