Head Tilt in Cats

The vestibular syndrome is not a specific disease but a collection of neurological symptoms and behaviors that are caused by a disruption or dysfunction in the vestibular system.

This intricate and complicated system of nerves and anatomical elements is responsible for your cat’s sense of balance.

The vestibular system also coordinates the movements of your cat’s eyes, neck, head, and limbs.

If the vestibular disease is suspected, your veterinarian will need to pinpoint the location of the problem and determine whether the symptoms are originating from the inner ear (peripheral) or the brain stem (central).

If your cat is holding its head on an angle and having trouble keeping its balance, it may be suffering from the vestibular syndrome.

The vestibular syndrome is a condition that occurs suddenly.

It can cause your cat to stumble, fall, list to one side, or tilt its head.

You may notice your cats’ eyes moving erratically from one side to another as it struggles to keep its balance.

Head tilt is usually one of the first obvious signs of the vestibular syndrome.
