High Blood Pressure in Cats
Feline hypertension, or high blood pressure, has many causes. In 13-20% of cases there is no underlying cause or disease, and this is called primary hypertension. More often cats will have a disease process that causes the high blood pressure. Some common causes of hypertension include chronic kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, age, and hyperaldosteronism. We can also see elevated blood pressure that is due to stress, or white coat syndrome. Therefore, we will often recheck blood pressures in cats after we get an initial increased result.
The Cat Hospital of Media has enrolled in the AVMF Veterinary Care Charitable Fund, a program created by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) to support veterinarians in offering low or no-cost services to clients facing extraordinary hardships, as well as a way to support animals rescued from abuse and neglect.

As a participant in the AVMF Veterinary Care Charitable Fund, we will be empowered to provide charitable care to those in need, including: low income senior citizens, Good Samaritans who rescue domesticated animals, and assistance for persons affected by unforeseen financial hardship.
