As soon as a cat experiences stroke like symptoms, the cat should be immediately rushed to a veterinarian facility. The veterinarian will perform a series of tests to rule out other possible causes of the symptoms. If no other type of disorder is quickly diagnosed, than further tests will be needed to check for the possibility of a stroke.
Cats can develop a number of health conditions that can also occur in their human companions, and stroke is one of these conditions. When the brain does not receive the normal amount of blood, oxygen levels in the brain decrease and a stroke can occur.
