Protect your cat against the flu

Sneezing, runny nose, sore eyes and fever are some of the symptoms to

watch for in your cat. The so-called Feline Rhinotracheitis is a viral disease

transmitted between cats through saliva and secretions.

Besides the most common symptoms, the disease can also cause mouth

sores, so your cat may end up eating less or stop eating. It is important to

highlight that cats cannot go without food for a long time, as they may develop

liver diseases even more serious than the flu itself.

The disease, caused by the Feline Herpes Virus (FHV), usually has a good

prognosis when treated promptly. At any sign of apathy or other symptoms, it

is very important to look for medical help, so that the best treatment can be

chosen. The vet is the only person qualified for that, ok?

Treatment usually includes antibiotics and other medications that relieve the

unpleasant symptoms in cats. Separate sick animals from healthy animals to

avoid contamination until the infectious period ends. Be especially careful with

kittens, which are more likely to be affected by the flu, and are usually more

fragile.

Oh, and remember the vaccination, which is essential to ensure the cat’s

health. The vet will explain about dosage and frequency. Prevention is the best

option when it comes to the flu. Who loves a pet, takes precautions,

vaccinates and cares.
