Could your cat be suffering with chronic pain?
Excessively long, thick or brittle claws can result from painful elbows as cats need to stretch out to scratch properly
Changes in behaviour and routine, such as more time spent sleeping, can indicate that your cat might be painful
A dull, matted or scruffy coat can be a sign of neck or back pain as it is more difficult for these cats to groom
Decreased activity, stiffness and weakness is often noticed by owners when their cat has difficulty jumping up or down from favourite sleeping places
If you've noticed any of these changes in your cat, make an appointment to speak to your vet.
There are prescription medicines available to help alleviate the pain, as well as simple changes you can make at home to help your cat stay happy and active.
