Ways to Treat a Bengal Cat with Fatty Liver Disease

Before treating your Bengal cat for fatty liver disease, make sure he has been tested and professionally diagnosed by your veterinarian. This particular disease occurs in cats when large amounts of fat are deposited into the liver. Symptoms may include prolonged anorexia, rapid weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, muscle wasting, depression, downward flexion of the head and neck, yellowing of the eyes, drooling, and possible collapse in later stages. Once a diagnosis has been made, your cat will need immediate treatment from your veterinarian. If it is severe, your cat may need to be hospitalized for fluid therapy as well as vitamin supplements that may include B-complex vitamins, cobalamin and thiamine. Additional treatment is dietary as your cat will need protein immediately to reverse the malnourishment or state of starvation.
