How to Treat Head Pressing in Cats

If you note that your cat is head pressing, immediately arrange a visit to your veterinarian. Head pressing may be caused by underlying problems that should be identified and treated.

Key takeaways:

– Head-pressing should not be confused with head-butting, which is a normal behavior for cats and a sign of affection.

– Head-pressing is caused by nervous system damage which may result from surgery, diet and medication.

– A battery of tests such as blood and urine analysis, CT and MRI scans of the brain can identify the underlying cause.

Each disease or ailment will require a different method of treatment. In most cases, your veterinarian will recommend follow-up neurological examinations to monitor the progress of the condition.
