Bombay Cats with Fatty Liver Disease

Bombay Cats with Fatty Liver Disease

Cats like the Bombay can suffer from a fatty liver disease called Hepatic Lipidosis. The disease can affect a variety of breeds no matter the age or sex. Fatty liver disease in cats is a problem around the globe. The disease typically affects middle aged cats. Fatty liver disease can be genetic or a symptom of an underlying condition. It occurs when large amounts of fat are deposited into the liver. This can cause the cat to lose weight and become undernourished even though his diet hasn’t changed. As a result, his body will transfer fat reserves to the liver to be converted into the proteins needed for energy. A cat’s liver is unable to handle this large amount of fat and may become swollen. In addition, you may see a yellowing of the cat’s eyes. If your Bombay presents any of these symptoms, please call your veterinary clinic Crown Point, IN.
