Acute Collapse in Cats

Many of the diseases that cause acute collapse are progressive (they can get worse). Once a diagnosis has been reached and the cause of collapse is known, you should discuss with your veterinarian the frequency of rechecks.

Follow-up care may include:

  • Administer any medications prescribed

  • Schedule re-evaluations as recommended

  • Monitor your cat for weakness. Often this is apparent as an unwillingness or difficulty in rising, stumbling when walking, or recurrence of collapse

  • Monitor for breathing difficulties such as labored or inexplicably rapid breathing. This may indicate a problem in the circulation, lungs, or blood, or suggest your cat is feeling discomfort or pain

  • Prepare a plan in case collapse recurs. This is a significant issue if transportation is not immediately available

  • Exact recommendations will depend on the precise cause of the collapse
