Cat Health Care and Flu in Cats

About the most prevalent cat health care issues that our feline friends face in this country is feline flu virus. The reason it is so problematic is it can easily be complicated by secondary bacterial infections and can be life threatening. Ironically, in spite of the risk of serious harm, it is actually easily avoidable. Cat health care is jeopardised by feline flu virus because there are two sorts of the illness: viral feline flu virus in addition to bacterial feline flu. Pet cats can pick up either or both, with bacterial cat flu being a frequent secondary infection in cats and kittens with viral flu. Like is the situation with humans getting the common cold and flu, it’s most often and most easily transmitted between cats who are kept in large groups, for instance those in catteries or cat rescue organisations. That is one of the primary reasons why cattery owners insist your furry friend is vaccinated before its stay.

A few of the very typical symptoms of cat flu to be aware of are sneezing and coughing, a clear discharge from the nose and eyes, abnormal salivation, depression, low appetite, lameness and ulcers on the tongue, nasal area or roof of the mouth. If your feline acquires a secondary bacterial infection then the discharge from the nose and eyes can become thicker and yellow in colouring. These kinds of signs and symptoms are all indications of a cat health care problem and so the pet needs to be taken to visit the vet. In these situations, intensive treatment by a veterinarian will be the infected cat’s best possibility for survival. The cat health care vet will be able to treat bacterial cat flu with antibiotics but there is unfortunately no specific treatment for viral cat flu.

Due to the fact that there’s no cure for life threatening cat flu virus, cat health care experts will always be keen to underline that vaccination as a kitten with continuous booster jabs is very important. Vaccination is the only established way of preventing cat flu.
