Our four legged friends often have the same diseases as humans, including eating disorders. These diseases are also more recurrent than we think.
Your companion can show symptoms of bulimia. Sometimes it is because of certain diseases that increase their appetite, like diabetes. It will therefore be necessary to take a blood sample of your animal to verify the diagnosis.
But most often it is because of its anxiety that your pet eats more than they should: in fact, it is a substitute activity to calm their anguish. The latter is often due to boredom or loneliness. In this case you have to use antidepressants and give your pet low calorie kibble.
The cat can be aggressive especially during meals: hide their food to occupy them, and they will develop their hunting instincts at the same time.
If your pet shows signs of anorexia, it is most often a whim. If they refuse what you're offering them, it is to test you. In this case, do not be fooled and do not change the menu: your companion you could do it again!
But sometimes your pet adopts this behavior because they are sick: colds, dental problems, fever ... This can also be a sign of major depression: it is probably the case if your partner sleeps all the time, doesn't groom itself and refuses to eat.
