Keep calm and measure cats' blood pressure - Phys.org

The International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM), the veterinary division of International Cat Care, is highlighting some broadly similar concerns in our feline companions. Hypertension is a well-recognised condition in older cats , yet probably remains significantly underdiagnosed. The consequences can be severe, with target organ damage typically affecting the eyes, heart, brain and kidneys. Some damage, such as blindness resulting from complete retinal detachment, is irreversible. Other damage, however, is more amenable to antihypertensive treatment, highlighting the importance of early diagnosis and intervention. However, this presents challenges, particularly as routine blood pressure monitoring is generally performed infrequently in cats. Furthermore, cats are notoriously susceptible to stress in the veterinary clinic, which can lead to 'white coat hypertension' and hamper interpretation of results.

Question about diabetes and cats?

my cat is diabetic and i need to be able to test her blood sugar at home with a glucose meter. i've tried using the lancets to draw the blood, but with her fur and tough skin i can't get enough blood to test it. is it safe to use one of the syringes for

What kind of glucometer are you using? Maybe try getting one that needs only a very small amount of blood.

I use the Freestyle glucometer


Why not ask your vet for the best way.


Pass on using the needles to draw blood. If you took a look at the needle under a microscope, you would see how dull and scarred it gets even after one use. That and any chance to get an air bubble...

Do I Put My Cat To Sleep?

My 8 year cat was just diagnosed with diabetes. It's completely treatable. But it requires a lot more money than I can afford to spend...office visits, insulin, glucose meters ect....I don't even pay for health insurance for myself. Treatment initially


You can get a free glucose meter here, just put yourself in as 'caretaker' or 'other' and don't say it's for a cat --

My mom put down my cat who i really felt a bond with because she might've had cancer. We didn't want to buy an expensive surgery so we did what we had to. So I guess it's really up to you.


Where I live there are a couple of clinics that provide vet services for low income people for free. You should look to see if something like this exists where you reside. Perhaps then you can take care of your cat and keep him/her. Putting down your
