High Cholesterol in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Initially, treatment will begin with changing your cat's existing diet to one which contains less than ten percent fat. If this is not effective, alternative medical treatments may be prescribed at your veterinarian’s discretion.

 

Living and Management

 

Your veterinarian will schedule follow-up appointments so that your cat's serum triglyceride levels can be monitored. This will be for the prevention of possibly fatal bouts of acute pancreatitis as the result of abnormally high levels of fat in the blood.
