The 10 most common cat disease and how to prevent them

As a cat guardian, (because we are here to be the servant of these feline Gods that have been worshipped throughout time) one of your biggest priorities is making sure your feline friend stays healthy for the long haul.

I know how heartbreaking it is to see your cat ill or suffering and no matter how many trips to the vet, medications and therapies you use, your cat does not make it and then you wonder if there could have been more you could have done. I certainly did before I learnt everything i possibly could about alternative healing modalities and alternative medicine.

I know it is confusing with so much information out there that is often counter intuitive, so always find a holistic vet or practitioner like me that you can trust and always, ask questions if something does not feel right to you. It is your choice and your wallet so don’t be afraid to get a second or third opinion when it comes to your beloveds health.

Since cats are naturally curious, they tend to get into trouble, eat things that may not be good for them, or have adventures with other cats. Any or all of these things can lead to a problem, an illness or a disease, and if you don’t know what to look for, you may miss a potentially serious condition.Cats are also masters at concealing illness because no matter how domesticated they may be, that primal genetic inheritance to hide or mask disease is strong.

One of the best courses of action is knowledge and prevention, and one of the best ways of prevention is learning about the 10 most common diseases in cats. These common maladies include rabies, feline leukemia, diabetes, infectious peritonitis and several others. Knowing these diseases and their symptoms gives you a heads-up on figuring out what may be wrong with kitty, and whether or not a trip to the vet is warranted.

Educate yourself about your pets health and wellness

Knowing about the diseases can be the difference between making good or bad decisions, and may also lead towards effective treatment. For example, if your cat has an upper respiratory infection, symptoms such as coughing and sneezing can generally be managed at home. For something like worms, which may cause bloating, blood in the stool or a potbellied look, a trip to the vet for proper diagnosis and deworming will be in order.

Your Cat Depends On You

Cats are generally low maintenance pets that sometimes need little or no specific vet care except for regular check-ups. But when they come down with an illness or a disease, they become totally dependent on you and the decision you make to get them well again. Essentially, you have become their primary caregiver, and it is a role you must accept if you choose to have a cat.

By learning about the most common cat diseases, you will positively impact the life of your cat. Let’s face it, the quality of life that your cat has, no matter how long they live, depends completely on you. They rely on you to feed them, water them and take care of them, even if they become sick. For that, they will give you a lifetime of meows and purrs, and for a cat lover, it doesn’t get any better than that.

Book an animal communication or core healing session

If you are concerned about your cats health, always consult your trusted homeopathic vet and consider booking an animal communication and healing session with me. Time after time, by going straight to the animal  and asking them what they feel, what therapies or tinctures are working for them, not only cuts out unnecessary worry but saves you valuable time and money from invasive testing (that often don’t give any solution) and by sharing with your vet has many times in my experience with animal communications saved their lives.


I am a great believer in prevention better than cure. I also want you to trust you are enough for your animals and by helping yourself get educated and getting the right support you help your animals. The greatest gift you can give to them and yourself is to BE YOUR OWN MEDICINE and let nature be thy medicine.
