Knowing the most common reasons cats go to the vet is important in developing a preventative health plan for your cat and knowing what to look out for.

Embrace Pet Insurance recently analyzed its medical claims received to determine the top 10 most commonly claimed conditions for cats. In fact, they found that the top 10 conditions accounted for about 25 percent of all medical claims received in 2013.

Most Common Cat Claims/Conditions

  • Vomiting (Gastritis)
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Diarrhea (Enteritis)
  • Respiratory Infections
  • Eye Infection (Conjuctivitis)
  • Weight Loss
  • Lethargy
  • Lymphoma
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Anorexia

Vomiting alone is twice any other claim on this top 10 list. Vomiting can be caused by eating something that is not digestible, diet changes, or organ malfunction such as kidney disease or liver disease. If your cat is showing any abnormalities, please see your veterinarian.

Medical problems are common in cats and some conditions such as diabetes or lymphoma can be very expensive to treat. To ensure you do the best for your cat should a problem arise, please consider pet insurance.

Pet insurance can allow you to do the best for your cat if he or she were to have an accident or become ill without having to worry about how you are going to pay for it.

The policies with Embrace Pet Insurance are easy to understand. You choose your deductible and copay to fit your budget and your needs. The pet insurance company then covers the rest. For example – you can choose a $200 deductible and 10% copay. If your cat were to have a problem that cost $2,000 – you would be reimbursed 90% of the veterinary bill after the deductible.

We would not think about letting our kids be without health insurance, our cats should also be protected. I encourage you to take a minute to educate yourself about
pet insurance and learn how it can help you provide your cat with the best medical care.
