pale gums and nose in cat


Posted by Cathey R.

I just noticed that my cat has very pale gums and nose.  What would cause this and should I be overly concerned?

Yes you should be concerned and get the cat to a veterinarian as soon as possible
The most common cause of this is blood loss and I agree that your cat should be examined by your veterinarian as soon as possible. There are multiple causes for this, including infections, trauma, and parasites and the chance of any of these resolving without treatment is very, very low.
