Keeping your senior cat in good health : High Blood Pressure
Did you know cats can suffer from high blood pressure, just like humans? There are often no visible signs, but left untreated it can cause blindness and damage the heart or brain.
High blood pressure is more common in older cats, and those with certain medical conditions like kidney disease. We recommend that all cats over seven years old have their blood pressure checked yearly.
Blood pressure is measured in cats using similar methods to that used for humans. It’s a quick and relatively straight forward procedure, you can even stay with your cat whilst it’s done.
Milton Keynes Veterinary Group run Senior Health Checks with one of our registered veterinary nurses at our Cat Only Clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays at our Stoke Road branch, call us on 01908 397777 to book an appointment.
