Diseases that Balinese cats are Prone To

Though the Balinese are quite healthy cats, they are still prone to get affected by certain diseases if not well taken care of.
1. Dilated Cardiomyopathy: Dilated Cardiomyopathy is a heart condition that is defined by the heart muscles’ inability to contract properly, which eventually leads to a decrease in blood pumping to the heart. When a cat has cardiomyopathy, both the heart chambers become enlarged from having to work harder to get blood through. The extra stress on the heart from the limited blood flow often leads to congestive heart failure (CHF). The major symptoms of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) include depression, loss of appetite, and weakness. Domestic Longhairs are not prone to breed distinct diseases but, like all cats, can be prone to certain conditions like dilated cardiomyopathy.

2. Hereditary liver amyloidosis: Liver amyloidosis is a condition that causes hard, waxy lesions to accumulate in the liver. The build-up may cause blood in the abdomen and/or lead to eventual liver failure.
