The Persian Cat is the world’s most popular cat breed. However, it is also important to point out potential health issues that can later develop with this popular breed. The following are reasons for getting pet insurance if you own or planning to own a Persian Cat:
- Persian cats have poor skin immunity and more than likely than other breeds to suffer from ringworm. Treatments includes prolonged courses of anti-fungal medications, as well as repeated test to check if infection has cleared;
- The Persian’s flat face means he is likely to suffer from tear overflow, which is likely to lead to yeast infections;
- Persians suffer from a genetic kidney problem called poly cystic kidney disease, which can lead to kidney failure; and finally
- Persian Cats have flat faces which can affect their breathing, and in some cases, reconstructive surgery may be needed to open up the nostrils and shorten the soft palate at the back of the mouth
