Cat Obesity Veterinary Hospital In Bucks County

Obesity in cats is almost always caused by an imbalance between physical activity and food/caloric intake, meaning your cat is eating more calories than they are able to burn. An unhealthy diet high in fat, giving your cat lots of treats or “human” food, as well as a lack of exercise may all contribute to weight gain. While hypothyroid disease may contribute to weight gain in a dog, this condition is very uncommon in feline populations.


Cushings Disease In Cats Veterinary Hospital In Bucks County

Hyperadrenocorticism or Cushing’s disease is a condition where the adrenal glands are overproducing and secreting the hormone cortisol. The endocrine system is a collective system of glands that help produce and secrete hormones in the body. Within this intricate system are the adrenal glands. These organs are located near the kidneys and help produce hormones that help regulate bodily functions, one of them being cortisol. Cortisol is a chemical that is responsible for handling stress, control weight, keeping blood sugar regulated and helps to reduce inflammation. When a pet’s body produces too much of this hormone it can cause serious health concerns that could lead to more life threating scenarios. Although this is an uncommon disease for cats to contract, senior aged cats; predisposed breeds or any underlying medical condition can increase your cat’s susceptibility to the disease.
