Head Trauma in Cats

Other medical problems can lead to symptoms similar to those encountered in head trauma. It is important to exclude these conditions before establishing a definite diagnosis. In cases where there is obvious external injury to the skull or bleeding from the ear canal or nostrils, a diagnosis of head trauma is more obvious. In situations where there is no obvious evidence of head trauma, an alternate diagnosis list should be considered. This includes:

  • Abscess or infection in the brain
  • Brain tumor
  • Distemper (a viral disease that can affect the brain)
  • Drug intoxication
  • GME (granulomatous meningioencephalitis)
  • Hypocalcemia (low blood calcium)
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Inflammatory disease of the brain
  • Seizure disorder
  • Toxicosis (pesticides, antifreeze, rat poisons)
