Pet Symptoms

Hypertension, better known as high blood pressure, develops when the blood pressure in the arteries remains abnormally high. There are two forms of hypertension; primary and secondary. Primary hypertension is not caused by other factors, whereas secondary hypertension develops due to underlying issues. High blood pressure is a serious condition that can lead to complications such as heart disease and organ damage.

Common symptoms associated with high blood pressure in cats include; tremors, repetitive circle movements, vision loss, confusion, pupil dilation, retinal damage, eye bruises, bloody urine, proteinuria, nose bleeds, and arrhythmia. Therapy is aimed at lowering blood pressure and maintaining it at a normal range. Antihypertensive drugs are the primary choice of treatment for treating the condition.
