This condition also known as fatty liver syndrome occurs when triglycerides accumulate within the liver cells and obstruct the organ’s function. Hepatic lipidosis is a secondary consequence of some other underlying condition, such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, hyperthyroidism, pancreatitis, kidney disease, or another type of liver problem. In the anorexic cat, excessive amounts of fat move to the liver from storage areas throughout the body to compensate for the lack of fat that would normally be consumed via its food. The liver is unable to process this excessive intake of fat, so it collects in the animal’s liver cells. It is crucially important to identify the underlying condition responsible for hepatic lipidosis and to initiate appropriate therapy for that condition without delay. Signs to look for: jaundiced, yellowish tinge in the skin, gums, and ears, lethargy, weakness, vomiting, and behavioral changes.
