Quiz: I think my cat has Cerebellar Hypoplasia!

DISCLAIMER: We cannot stress this enough that this quiz is NOT to replace an official and professional diagnosis/medical plan from your veterinarian and/or veterinary specialist. This quiz is simply a collection of common questions regularly utilized to help owners and other veterinary/shelter professionals alike exercise “process of elimination” in helping to determine if a cat MAY have cerebellar hypoplasia or potentially needs more diagnostics etc., We cannot be held liable for any illness/injury that may stem from not seeking appropriate veterinary advice/medical care/treatment.


So, you think your cat has Cerebellar Hypoplasia?

Disclaimer:  This is simply a "quiz" to potentially gauge if your pet has CH or not. It does NOT remove a veterinary/specialist diagnosis nor should it replace or equate to a veterinary diagnosis/medical advice etc., WE ALWAYS URGE YOU TO CONTACT YOUR VETERINARIAN! Or visit our online map to find a CH friendly veterinarian in your area!
