Why a cat does not eat anything? Dangerous symptom

Cats are well able to hide the disease. When the cat does not eat – it can be an eloquent sign that something is wrong with the health of your pet.

Delayed wound healing
Increased risk of infection
Violation of the liver
Is your cat very thin?
Without food, cats can lose weight quickly. A change in body weight of more than 0.5-2% per week is dangerous even for obese cats.

This is due to the fact that unreasonable weight loss can indicate a serious illness. In fact, unexplained weight loss in cats is a well-known symptom of several diseases:

Renal failure
Hyperthyroidism
Diabetes
Gastrointestinal diseases
Metabolic disease
Liver failure
Pancreatitis
Pain caused by various causes
