OBJECTIVE To determine effects of age and sex on plasma lipid and lipoprotein metabolism in cats. ANIMALS 33 kittens and 16 adolescent, 23 adult, and 10 senior cats. PROCEDURE Plasma concentrations of cholesterol, triglyceride, and lipoprotein-cholesterol and activities of lipoprotein lipase, hepatic lipase, and lecithin:cholesterol acyl transferase (LCAT) were measured and compared within and among groups.
