Signs of Liver Problems in Cats

Save

Liver problems are more common in older cats, but can affect cats of all ages. Only your veterinarian can accurately diagnose liver problems through diagnostic tests. Should your cat have liver problems, it will most likely need to be on a modified diet for the remainder of its life.

Vomiting

  • Your cat may experience episodes of vomiting after meals as a symptom of liver disease.

Light-Colored Stools

  • A sign of liver problems is light-colored fecal material. Abdominal swelling or diarrhea may also occur.

Poor Appetite

  • Liver problems may lead to a decrease in appetite.

Jaundice

  • Your cat may show signs of yellowing of the skin or eyes if it has liver problems.

Anorexia

  • Your cat may stop eating all together, causing the body to send stored fat to the liver to process for energy. Your cat may then develop fatty liver disease.

Lethargy

  • If your cat is having liver problems, its energy levels may decrease.

Epilepsy

  • Your cat may experience seizures due to liver problems.
