What are the Signs of Fatty Liver Disease in Ocicats?


When a cat like the Ocicat develops fatty liver disease he can develop a variety of symptoms and signs of disease or illness. For example, your cat may develop anorexia, rapid weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, muscle wasting, depression, downward flexion of the head and neck, yellowing of the eyes, drooling, and possible collapse in later stages. Call your vet immediately if your cat has any of these symptoms. In general, fatty liver occurs when large amounts of fat are deposited into the liver. The liver cannot handle this amount of fat and is unable to function correctly. An infected cat may stop eating and become undernourished. When this happens his body naturally takes fat from reserves and transfers them to the liver in order to process it into energy, which creates many of the outward symptoms. For more details, talk with your veterinarian Somerville, MA.
