Bringing home a new kitten is a lot like bringing home a baby: You want to prepare for the unexpected and plan as best you can. But some things are outside of even the savviest adopter’s control, and your new little fluff ball’s playful and curious energy may land you in your vet’s office more often than you’d like. So, what can you expect?
Nationwide pet insurance looked at real-life member claims to see which health issues in cats under the age of five years topped the list every year. Check them out below:
- Eye infection
- Ear infection
- Abscessed tooth
- Upper respiratory infection
- Allergic dermatitis
- Bladder infection
- Skin infection
And if you haven’t already enrolled your cat in a pet insurance policy, keep in mind that chronic issues like ear infections and skin allergies may require treatment throughout their life (more about that here).
