A north Norfolk author is on the lookout for cats with arthritis and dogs with epilepsy for her latest books.

Gill Carrick (pictured) is appealing for owners of afflicted pets to get in touch if they would be prepared to be interviewed for advice guides about the medical conditions which are due out next year, published by animal specialists Hubble and Hattie.

Ms Carrick, from Trunch, had a first guide in the series published last year, called My Dog Has Arthritis But Lives Life To The Full! and said the planned follow-ups stemmed from that book.

One owner of a dog with arthritis had another which had been diagnosed with epilepsy, and it had also seemed logical to move from dogs to cats with arthritis.

“It’s well known that dogs suffer arthritis but a lot of people might not realise that cats do too, especially as they get older,” she said.

“If they’re spending longer on the sofa and are reluctant to move around or go outside, it could be a sign. And if their behaviour patterns are different it might be because they have inflammatory arthritis and are feeling out of sorts.”

Ms Carrick would also be interested to hear from people whose former pets had suffered either condition while alive.
