Hepatic Lipidosis in Cats (Fatty Liver Syndrome) Part 2
Time to dissect a cat's fatty liver!

An interesting discovery was made during several investigations of "Prognostic markers in feline hepatic
lipidosis: a retrospective study of".
When did 71 cats develop hepatic lipidosis symptoms? , 23 of 71 developed hepatic lipidosis in summer, with the lowest incidence of hepatic lipidosis in spring.

The mortality rate from hepatic lipidosis is very high at 38% (27 animals).

Although the study did not mention the reason for the high incidence in summer,
In that hepatic lipidosis can be caused by a disease, but it is a unique disease that it can develop if there is stress caused by environmental changes.
We agree that there is something right about the effect of seasons on feline liver lipidosis.

Summer is the season to keep an eye on your cat for signs of hepatic lipidosis: jaundice, vomiting, weight loss, loss of appetite, and more!!
