Can kittens get cat plague? What are the symptoms of cat plague

       Kittens who are just full moon will get cat plague.

       Feline plague, also known as feline panleukopenia and feline infectious enteritis, is an acute high contact infectious disease of cats. Most of the clinical manifestations are characterized by sudden high fever, persistent vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, circulatory disorders and rapid leukopenia (not all leukopenia cases are feline plague, and other diseases can also cause leukopenia, such as cat leukemia, cat hepatitis, etc.).

       Cats with incomplete vaccination or without vaccination were more likely to get cat plague, especially in the 3-5 months old cats. If the female cat is infected during pregnancy, it will cause stillbirth, miscarriage and neurological symptoms of newborn kittens. The transmission route is contacting with virus carrying urine feces or blood sucking insects and fleas. The pathogen is a kind of virus of Parvoviridae and parvovirus genus. After the virus enters the body, it can survive for more than 1 year in * *. Parvovirus can survive in the environment for a long time, but can be inactivated by * *, sodium hypochlorite (household disinfectant) or dialdehyde.

       Cat plague is also known as feline panleukopenia or infectious enteritis. It is a highly contagious viral disease, mainly occurring in cats under one year old. Its clinical symptoms are fever, leucopenia, vomiting and hemorrhagic enteritis. It is the most common and dangerous infectious disease of domestic cats.

       [occurrence and spread of disease]

       The pathogen of cat distemper is feline parvovirus.

       The infectivity of the virus is very high. It is usually transmitted by direct contact or by blood sucking parasites. Cats with incomplete vaccination or without vaccination were more likely to get cat plague, especially in the 3-5 months old cats. If the female cat is infected during pregnancy, it will cause stillbirth, miscarriage and neurological symptoms of newborn kittens.

       When cats are infected with the virus, a large number of them are found in vomit, feces, urine, saliva, nose and eye secretions. Even sick cats can still excrete virus from feces and urine several weeks to more than a year after recovery. These excretions and secretions contaminate feed, drinking water, utensils or the surrounding environment, and then spread the disease. Therefore, sick cats are the main source of infection.

       [symptoms]

       Feline plague, also known as feline panleukopenia, is characterized by a sharp decrease in white blood cells. Blood test showed that the number of white blood cells decreased significantly (decreased to less than 4000 cells / ml 4-6 days after infection).

       Clinical symptoms include–

       Poor spirit: depressed spirit, rough coat, indifferent to the master’s call and environment.

       Refeeding: loss of appetite, gradually do not eat after the onset.

       High fever: the body temperature rises to above 40 ¡æ for about 24 hours and then drops to normal temperature, but it can rise again after 2-3 days, showing typical multiphase heat type.

       Vomiting: is its most important characteristic.

       Diarrhea: watery stool with blood, severe dehydration and rapid weight loss.

       Dehydration and secondary bacterial infection are often the causes of sudden death. Other complications include oral ulceration, dysentery, jaundice, and generalized intravascular coagulation syndrome.

       If the course of disease is more than 5-7 days and there is no fatal complication, it can be recovered; the number of white blood cells will return to normal within 24-48 hours.

       [treatment measures]

       The main treatment methods are non gastric infusion to supplement electrolyte and nutrition, correct dehydration, improve vomiting symptoms and give broad-spectrum antibiotics to prevent secondary bacterial infection. In case of severe anemia, blood or plasma transfusion should be considered. Of course, prevention is always better than treatment, so giving a vaccine to protect your cat is the best way.

       For mild cases, especially in the early stage, treatment should be carried out in isolation.

       Due to diarrhea and severe dehydration in sick cats, infusion should be carried out in time and decisively in the early stage of the disease, so as to adjust the balance of electrolyte and correct acidosis. The amount of infusion should be determined according to the condition of the patient, especially the degree of dehydration, which is usually about 50 ml per kilogram. Secondly, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, all kinds of antibacterial drugs have no medical effect on cat parvovirus, mainly used to prevent secondary infection. In addition, some adjuvant therapies can be used, such as hemostatic drugs, 10% glucose injection, vitamin drugs, etc.

       [experience]

       The cat is a kind of animal with strong endurance. It may not be easily detected in the early stage of cat plague. It is characterized by poor spirit, long sleep time, and loss of appetite. In the middle stage, this kind of behavior is more obvious. In severe cases, there will be food refusal. As the owner, should carefully observe the cat’s condition, found abnormal, even for its temperature measurement, early detection is more conducive to treatment and recovery.

       Attention should be paid to the treatment of feline fever

       1. Be sure to keep warm.

       2. Cat plague high immune serum is very important, in fact, it is the antibody of cat plague virus. In the treatment, only this one is specifically aimed at the virus. But should pay attention not to inject continuously for more than three days, more also has side effects.

       2. Fluid balance and prevention of acidosis

       Infusion is the best treatment. If you can’t give your cat an infusion, you can give him a mixture of 10% glucose and normal saline at intervals to help him replenish energy and water.

       3. Prevention of secondary infection with antibiotics

       The commonly used antibiotics are gentamicin, twice a day, once feeding 20000 units.

       Now a new antibiotic drug for animals is called prochloraz. You can consult the doctor about the dosage.

       4. Antiemetic

       Weifuan injection is a good antiemetic drug, which is very important during the treatment. It can be injected or taken orally.

       5. Regulating digestive function

       During the treatment period, because of the intake of a large number of antibiotics, the cat’s normal digestive flora was destroyed at the same time. It is necessary to give the cat some drugs to regulate digestion, such as lactase and enterology. However, it should be noted that this kind of drugs should be used in the recovery period of cat plague, that is, when the cat starts to eat, and the interval between the drugs and antibiotics should be more than half an hour Take it.

       6. Other drugs such as dexamethasone and VC are drugs to help metabolism, which can be added according to the situation

       The incubation period of cat distemper is 2-9 days. The cat is a kind of animal with strong endurance. It may not be easily detected in the early stage of cat plague. It shows signs such as poor spirit, long sleep time, loss of appetite and drooling. In the middle stage, this kind of performance is more obvious, and in serious cases, there will be food refusal. As the owner, should carefully observe the cat’s condition, find abnormal, as soon as possible for its temperature measurement, early detection is more conducive to treatment and recovery.

       Most of the young cats are acute, with body temperature rising above 40 ¡ã C and vomiting. Many cats do not appear any symptoms and die suddenly. Some may show symptoms of spinal cord type ataxia.

       Most of the cats over 26 months were subacute. The fever first reached about 40 ¡ã C, then dropped to normal temperature after 1-2 days, and then increased again after 3-4 days.

       3. The sick cat is listless, anorexia, vomiting, yellowish green color, sticky secretions in the mouth, eyes and nose, and sticky stool. When diarrhea occurs, it indicates that the animal is in the late stage of the disease, with bloody stool, severe dehydration, anemia, and even death.

       If the body temperature rises more than 40 ¡ã C and vomits, the diagnosis can be made according to the number of white blood cells.

       The main manifestations are as follows: fever, up to 40 ~ 41 ¡æ; listlessness and anorexia, even if the water does not enter seriously; bile like vomiting, even if the cat has not been eating and drinking for several days, they can still have something to vomit or pull out; Diarrhea, the degree of diarrhea in every cat is not exactly the same. Severe cases of watery bloody stool, and can pull many times a day, and the cat with mild symptoms may only have irregular stool and rotten stool.

       The sick cat is in low spirits, anorexia, obstinate vomiting, yellow green vomit, sticky secretions in the mouth, eyes and nose, and sticky stool. When diarrhea occurs, it indicates that the animal is in the late stage of the disease, with bloody stool, severe dehydration, anemia, and even death.

       Extended data

       Feline plague, also known as feline panleukopenia and feline infectious enteritis, is an acute high contact infectious disease of cats. Most of the clinical manifestations were characterized by sudden high fever, intractable vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, circulatory disorders and rapid reduction of white blood cells. Cats with incomplete vaccination or without vaccination were more likely to get cat plague, especially in the 3-5 months old cats.

       The cat is a kind of animal with strong endurance. It may not be easily detected in the early stage of cat plague.

       Feline plague, also known as feline panleukopenia, is a highly contagious disease of cats and felines.

       It is characterized by high fever, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration and leucopenia in circulating blood. The incubation period of this disease is 2-9 days. Acute type died within 24 hours. The course of subacute type is about 7 days. According to clinical records, most of the sick cats can be cured after 7-8 days of treatment, and most of the clinical cases are subacute. The first fever of the disease was 40 ¡æ. It dropped to normal temperature within 24 hours. The temperature rose again to about 40 ¡æ after 2-3 days. The sick cat is depressed and anorexia. Vomit disease is initially food and then yellow green gastric juice. Clinically, it is stubborn vomiting. Diarrhea usually occurs after 3-4 days of the course of disease, with blood in the later stage. It is brown, dehydrated and sunken eyeballs. Hemogram change: white blood cell reduces rapidly, can drop below 5 ¡Á 106l, when leucocyte drops below 2 ¡Á 106l, often prognosis is bad.

       The infection of cat plague is related to the cat’s own resistance, especially in malnutrition, weakness and sterilization. It is necessary to inject the cat plague vaccine.

       Specific therapy is to use anti cat plague serum. The earlier the antiserum is used, the better the effect will be. The dosage is 1-2ml kg, once a day or once every other day, 2-3 times continuously. Symptomatic treatment includes antiemesis, rehydration, prevention of secondary infection and enhancement of resistance.

       Lack of appetite: if there is something abnormal in the cat’s body, the most easily identified is loss of appetite. For most diseases, the most obvious and most common is anorexia, which includes not eating at all, eating only a little, eating without appetite, and eating favorite foods.

       However, it is not anorexia or disease. Sometimes, the loss of appetite can be caused by changing food, not liking the food given by the owner, or persisting in the same food for a long time. In short, the insecurity caused by environmental changes, or sudden shock, may be the cause of the cat’s loss of appetite. If this is the case, the owner should change the content of the food, and it is better to eat it in person. If the loss of appetite lasts for many days, the original vitality of the cat will disappear, and there may be vomiting, fever or other symptoms. The owner must pay attention to it.

       A sudden increase in the amount of water a cat has had, if not more than one water intake. After severe vomiting and diarrhea, cats will drink a lot of water. Even cats with diabetes mellitus or renal insufficiency will also drink more water and urinate more. Therefore, urine volume is actually one of the ways to observe body changes,

       Fever: the normal temperature of a cat is about 38-39 degrees. After exercise, the body temperature will rise slightly, and it will soon return to normal temperature. Generally speaking, when the cat is infected or partially suppurated, the cat’s temperature will rise. If the cat moves slowly or feels the heat of the cat when holding the cat, the thermometer should be used to measure the cat’s temperature and find that the cat has a fever Also check if there are other conditions, sometimes fever will be accompanied by anorexia or runny nose and other symptoms.

Other complications include oral ulceration, dysentery, jaundice, and generalized intravascular coagulation syndrome. In addition, the number of white blood cells decreased significantly, even to 50-3000 cells / ml / 4-6 days after infection; aplastic anemia is another important blood cell disease. If the course of disease is more than 5-7 days and there is no fatal complication, it can be recovered; the number of white blood cells will return to normal within 24-48 hours.

       The main treatment methods are non gastric infusion to supplement electrolyte and nutrition, correct dehydration, improve vomiting symptoms and give broad-spectrum antibiotics to prevent secondary bacterial infection.

       2¡¢ Symptomatic treatment of feline plague

       Feline infectious peritonitis: the disease is caused by the infection of cat coronavirus, and the infection rate is very high. Although the route of infection is not very clear, it is generally considered to be oral and nasal infection. The virus carrying cats will be excreted by feces, and the original cats will be infected by fecal detoxification to live cats; a few can be transmitted by mechanical means such as clothes, dishes, bedding, people or insects.

       The disease usually occurs in young adult cats under the age of four, especially in flocks. The course of disease may be sudden (more common in young cats) or slow and lasting for several weeks. Initial symptoms are not obvious, may appear appetite loss, poor spirit, weight loss, persistent fever (39.5-40.6 degrees: higher at dusk, and slowly decrease after nightfall). Later symptoms can be divided into two types: dry and wet

       Wet type: more cats died within two months after the onset of the disease. There is a high protein exudate in the chest and abdomen. Depending on the amount of pleural effusion, the symptoms range from asymptomatic to dyspnea or dyspnea. Progressive painless abdominal swelling, male cats may have scrotal swelling. Vomiting or diarrhea may occur. Moderate to severe anemia.

       Dry type: cloudy eyes, purulent anterior chamber, mydriasis, visual impairment and other symptoms. A few patients were accompanied with multiple progressive neurological symptoms, including hindquarters paralysis, convulsion, nystagmus and personality changes. Nodular lesions were found in liver, kidney, spleen, lung, omentum and lymph nodes; mesenteric lymph nodes could be felt by abdominal palpation. Anemia, jaundice.

       Clinically, the mortality rate of the sick cats is 95%, but there are still some healthy cats (such as good appetite, no malignant anemia, no infection with leukemia or early dry type), which can be improved with the aid of drugs. The condition should be reevaluated within one month, and the drug should be gradually reduced after 3 months.

       3¡¢ Precautions

       1. Be sure to keep warm.

       2. If the cat has other diseases, please keep the environment clean.

       3. Cat plague high immune serum is very important, in fact, it is the antibody of cat plague virus. In the treatment, only this one is specifically aimed at the virus. But should pay attention not to inject continuously for more than three days, more also has side effects. If the local medical conditions do not have high immune serum, you can find a vaccinated adult healthy cat, take the blood of the healthy cat, and take the separation method to extract the serum for the sick cat.

       4. Fluid balance and prevention of acidosis

       Infusion is the best treatment. If you can’t give your cat an infusion, you can feed your cat 10% glucose every once in a while and inject a mixture of * and normal saline to help him replenish energy and water. If you can buy pet liquid electrolysis multi-dimensional effect is better

       7. Regulating digestive function

       During the treatment, due to the use of a large number of antibiotics, resulting in the cat intestinal tract beneficial bacteria flora disorder. It is necessary to take large doses of drugs or health care products to regulate the health of intestinal flora, such as lactamase, mamillai, probiotics, etc. This kind of digestive drugs regulating the intestinal tract should be taken separately from antibiotics for more than half an hour.

       8. Other drugs such as dexamethasone and VC are drugs that help metabolism and can be added according to the situation.

       9. During the recovery period, pay attention to the bottom protein (milk, eggs, chicken liver, etc.) should not be fed for the time being. It is easy to digest the semi liquid food to the cat. You can buy a nutrition cream for your cat, which is more nutritious. Or consider buying Hill’s prescription ad (debilitating / sickly) cat jar, which contains shredded minced meat soup, which can be fed through syringes to recovering cats.

       Cats will be very vulnerable after being infected with cat plague. At this time, the owners should pay more attention to the diet and care of cats, so as to ensure that the cats do not add other burdens to the cats during the period of infection.
