Clinical Approach to Managing Anorexic Cats

Anorexia is a common non-specific clinical sign seen with many different causes of illness in cats. Known consequences of anorexia include:

  • Reduced immune function, with reduced recovery from infections and increased risk of sepsis
  • Decreased tissue repair and wound healing
  • Increased risk of altered drug metabolism potentially leading to toxicity
  • Increased risk of hepatic lipidosis (especially in obese cats)
  • Increased morbidity and mortality
  • Ultimately, poor nutrition worsens the prognosis for any individual cat. Conversely, nutritional support can greatly increase the chances of a rapid recovery from illness.
