As the owner, you are the first to notice when your cat shows signs of illness. These can manifest, for example, as unusual behaviour, a reduction in food consumption or a change in appearance.
Any signs you may notice do not necessarily mean your cat is unwell but you should be vigilant. Many illnesses begin with inconspicuous symptoms. If you examine your cat more closely, you have a good chance of discovering signs of illness in good time and getting treatment at an early stage.
The best way to check your cat is to examine it systematically, following a specific order. If you examine your pet regularly, paying attention to the following points, you will know their normal state and can then quickly identify changes. Furthermore, your cat will then be used to the checks and will be more willing to be examined even if in pain.
Your own observations can help you determine signs of illness
