Why is My Cat Losing Weight – the Top 9 Causes
If you are asking the question “Why is my cat losing weight?” then you need to first decide if your cat is still eating normally, if they are actually eating more rapidly (or appear more hungry), or if your cat has stopped eating and appears unwell. For those cats that are still eating and appear otherwise well, the most common causes are the early stages of hyperthyroidism, diabetes, and IBD/cancer. If your cat is unwell (or even just drinking a lot more) then the same causes could have progressed but your vet will also consider other cat weight loss causes like kidney disease, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, dental disease, pancreatitis, and other infections.
Getting your cat checked over early is more likely to result in successful treatment, and some of these conditions can be very successfully treated or even cured if caught in time.
