The mission of the Cat Health Guide is to provide cat parents with information on feline illnesses and diseases. While not a replacement for veterinary care, we do believe that an informed owned can ask better questions that will lead to better veterinary and behavioral outcomes.
The Cat Health Guide is a labor of love for Jeff. He started it in 2006 in the early days of the internet, when there wasn't as much reliable cat health information as there is today. He is not a veterinarian, but a skilled researcher. We do hire veterinarians to answer submitted reader questions and to clarify areas that are complex. Nothing gets written that we wouldn't do for our own cat or dog.

Ask A Vet a Question
If you have pressing medical questions we suggest you use an online veterinary service that has veterinarians standing by 24 hours a day.
