Does feline plague infect people? How does it infect other cats

       Sick cats can excrete a large number of viruses from feces, urine, vomit and various secretions to infect other cats. And the virus can survive in the environment for a long time.

       In addition to domestic cats, the virus can also infect other Felidae animals (such as tigers and leopards), weasels (Martens) and raccoons of Ursidae. Cats of all ages can be infected. In most cases, cats under 1 years old are susceptible to infection, up to 70%, and mortality rate is 50% to 60%. The mortality rate of kittens under 5 month old is up to 80% to 90%. The incidence rate decreases with age.

       Extended data:

       Clinical symptoms

       1. The incubation period of cat distemper is 2-9 days. The clinical symptoms are related to age and virulence of the virus.

       2. Most of the young cats have acute onset, and vomiting occurs when the temperature rises above 40 ¡ã C. many cats die suddenly without any symptoms, and some may show symptoms of spinal cord ataxia.

       3. Most of the cats over 6 months were subacute. The fever first reached about 40 ¡ã C, then dropped to normal temperature after 1-2 days, and then rose again after 3-4 days.

       4. 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.

       A large number of virus can be excreted from feces, urine, vomit and various secretions, and the virus can survive in the environment for a long time. The long-term detoxification of recovered cats can be more than one year. The infected cats can also be transmitted by fleas, lices, flies and other blood sucking insects.

       Feline plague, also known as feline panleukopenia and feline infectious enteritis, is an acute and highly contagious disease of cats. Most of the clinical manifestations are characterized by sudden high fever, stubborn 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.

       In addition to domestic cats, the virus can also infect other Felidae animals (such as tigers and leopards), weasels (Martens) and raccoons of Ursidae. Cats of all ages can be infected. In most cases, cats under 1 years old are susceptible to infection, up to 70%, the mortality rate is 50%~60%, and the mortality rate of 80%~90% below 5 month old is highest. The incidence rate decreases with age.

       The disease can occur throughout the year, especially in winter and spring.

       A large number of virus can be excreted from feces, urine, vomit and various secretions, and the virus can survive in the environment for a long time.

       The long-term detoxification of recovered cats can be more than one year.

       The infected cats can also be transmitted by fleas, lices, flies and other blood sucking insects.

       “Under natural conditions, cat plague can be transmitted through direct and indirect contact. A large number of viruses can be excreted from feces, urine, vomit and various secretions in cats at the stage of clinical symptoms of the disease, which pollute the eating utensils and the surrounding environment. Healthy cats may be infected after contacting these things. In addition to contact transmission, pregnant females can also transmit the virus through the placenta… “

       Feline plague is not transmitted to other cats through humans.

       The transmission route of feline plague

       1. There is a high concentration of feline plague virus in the feces of sick cats, and it is spread through fecal oral route. This is the main mode of transmission of cat plague virus. 2. Indirect contact is the most common route of infection, which can be transmitted through pollutants (shoes and clothes), which means that cats who do not go out of the house also have a certain possibility of getting sick. 3. Pregnant female cats infected may lead to stillbirth and abnormal fetus.

       4. It won’t spread through the air.

       1. Cat plague can be transmitted to other cats through human beings. Even if the cat does not leave the house, it may also be infected by the germs on the clothes and shoes when the owner comes home. Because cat plague is transmitted through the air that cats breathe with the virus.

       2. Cat is a kind of animal with strong endurance. Cat plague may not be easily detected in the initial stage. The symptoms are poor spirit, long sleep time, and loss of appetite. In the middle stage, this kind of behavior is more obvious, and in severe cases, there will be food refusal. In the middle and later period, it will show a high fever. It is usually characterized by fever to about 40 ¡ã C, falling to normal temperature after 1-2 days, and rising again after 3-4 days.

       3. Sick cats are in low spirits, anorexia, obstinate vomiting, yellow green vomit, sticky secretions in the mouth, eyes and nose, and sticky feces. When diarrhea occurs, it indicates that the animal is in the late stage of the disease, with bloody stool, severe dehydration, anemia, and death in severe cases.

       4. Specific therapy and symptomatic therapy can be used

       (1) Specific therapy. Use monoclonal antibody against feline fever by muscle or skin injection, 2 ml per kg body weight, generally once a day. If it is very serious, it can be given twice a day, up to three times in a row.

       Using recombinant cat interferon, 300000-500000 bits per kilogram of body weight.

       (2) Symptomatic therapy

       Stop vomiting: when vomiting occurs, you should fast and water. Metoclopramide was injected 0.15-0.25 ml per kg body weight twice a day, intramuscular or skin shot.

       Anti inflammatory: gentamicin 10000 units / kg body weight or kanamycin 50000-100000 units / kg body weight, twice a day, muscle or skin shot.

       Antipyretic: Bupleurum injection of 0.3 ml per kg body weight, twice a day.

       Hemostasis: Vitamin K3 injection: 0.3 ml / kg body weight, twice a day, intramuscular injection.

       Rehydration: in case of dehydration or vomiting, 5-10 ml of 25% glucose, 5 ml of 5% sodium bicarbonate and 30-50 ml of compound normal saline were injected intravenously.

       (3) Dietotherapy: it is recommended to feed a small amount of easy digestible, low fiber and low fat food, 3-6 times a day. Prescription foods for acute gastroenteritis can also be used. Gradually increase the amount of food within a few days to meet the needs of animals.

       (4) Be sure to provide a warm place for sick cats. Pay attention to keep the temperature of sick cats. It is better to provide a warm water bag or electric heater for cats.

       5. When the cat is two months old, take the cat to the regular pet hospital for vaccination, such as cat triple vaccine or cat plague vaccine kudzu powder. In addition, cats should not be released. If there are new cats, they must be isolated first. Parents should wash their hands before contacting the cats when they go home. Pay attention to the usual home hygiene, can also effectively reduce the cat’s chance of getting sick.

       Cat plague is terrible for many owners of cats. Xiaobian has also seen cats who have been infected with cat plague and failed to rescue them. But will the terrible cat plague infect human beings?

       Domestic cat

       In fact, our common zoonoses are rabies, anthrax, brucellosis, tularellosis, Salmonella, Toxoplasma, encephalitis B and avian influenza. As for cat plague, it’s not zoonotic, so it’s not contagious.

       Cats have strong endurance and are not easily detected by their owners in the early stage of infection. But cats also show some abnormal behavior. For example, fever, depression, sudden fever, persistent vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. If you take your cat to a pet hospital for examination, you will find a sharp decrease in white blood cells, far below the normal level.

       Although feline plague does not infect people, it can easily infect other healthy cats, and the damage caused by it is very clear. Therefore, cats suffering from cat plague should be isolated in the first time, and then treated.

       For our responsible parents, it is necessary to pay attention to the cat when finding these abnormal conditions. It is better to go to the cat for examination, just in case. No feline plague is to be congratulated, and other diseases should be treated in time. If the examination of cat plague, then the first isolation for treatment, which is very necessary.

       Here I wish all cats healthy, happy and safe.

       Usually cat plague is not transmitted to people, but the cat plague virus will survive indoors for a long time. If the home is not thoroughly disinfected, the virus will infect new cats again. First of all, you must immediately isolate the cat and take the healthy cat for vaccination and serum. Indoor disinfection must be thorough, in addition to the sick cat cage, to destroy everything it has used, such as nest and tableware, etc. for the places it has been to, especially under the sofa and bed, carefully clean it three times with disinfectant, and then try not to let other cats touch these places within 30 days. Feline plague is almost fatal to young cats, and the infection is also very rapid, so we must make all kinds of preparations. The following is to introduce the pathological knowledge of cat plague: feline panleukopenia, also known as feline plague fever or feline infectious enteritis, is an acute high contact infectious disease caused by feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) in cats, weasels and raccoons. The clinical manifestations were characterized by sudden high fever, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration and leucopenia in circulating blood flow. FPV belongs to Parvoviridae. The nucleic acid type of FPV is single strand DNA. FPV has a certain resistance to * *, chloroform, trypsin, 0.5% carbolic acid and pH = 3.0 acidic environment. Therefore, the above preparation should not be used in isolation and disinfection, and 0.2% formaldehyde or hypochlorite can be used to kill the virus. FPV can survive in the environment below 50 ¡æ for a long time, but once the temperature reaches 50 ¡æ, FPV can be inactivated within 1 hour. Therefore, there are time and geographical differences in the onset of FPV. The temperature in Nanjing area is moderate from late winter to spring, especially in March, which is the highest incidence rate of FPV. Under natural conditions, it can be transmitted through direct contact and indirect contact. In the period of viremia, a large amount of virus can be excreted from feces, urine, vomit and various secretions, which pollutes the diet, utensils and the surrounding environment and spreads by mouth. The animals in convalescent period can be detoxified for as long as one year. In addition to horizontal transmission, pregnant females can also transmit vertically to the fetus through the placenta. In addition to domestic cats, FPV can also infect other Felidae, Mustelidae and raccoonidae. Due to geographical differences, only cats are susceptible to FPV in Nanjing. According to the author’s long-term research, the outbreak of feline distemper is mainly related to the rapid change of feeding conditions, long-distance transportation and mixed breeding of cats with different sources. The infection of domestic cats is mainly related to non vaccination and non vaccination before operation. Cats can be infected at all ages. The incidence rate and mortality rate vary considerably due to the different immune status of the population. Maternal antibody can protect newborn kittens through colostrum. In most cases, young cats under one year old are more susceptible to infection, the infection rate can reach 70%, the mortality rate is 50% – 60%, the highest is 90%. Adult cats can also be infected, but often without clinical symptoms. The incubation period of the disease is 2-9 days. It is the most acute type. The animals do not show clinical symptoms and die immediately. They are often mistaken for poisoning. Acute type died within 24 hours. The course of subacute type was about 7 days. The temperature of the first fever was about 40 ¡æ and dropped to normal temperature about 24 hours later. After 2-3 days, the body temperature rose again, showing a biphasic heat type. The temperature reached 40 ¡æ. The diseased cat has poor sperm, rough coat, anorexia, vomiting, hemorrhagic enteritis and dehydration, and purulent discharge from eyes and nose. Pregnant female cats infected with FPV can cause abortion and stillbirth. Because FPV has affinity to the cells in the exuberant phase, it can seriously damage the brain of fetal cats. Therefore, the fetus born may have cerebellar hypoplasia. Hemorrhagic enteritis is the characteristic feature of the cat. The gastrointestinal tract is empty. The mucosal surface of the whole gastrointestinal tract has congestion, hemorrhage, edema and is covered by cellulose exudates in varying degrees. The pathological changes of jejunum and ileum are particularly prominent. The intestinal wall is seriously congested, bleeding and edematous. The intestinal wall is thickened like latex tube. There are gray red or yellow green cellulose necrotic pseudomembrane or cellulose cord in the intestinal cavity. The mesenteric lymph nodes were swollen and wet, with marbling patterns of red, gray and white, or uniform bright red or dark red. Hepatomegaly is reddish brown. The gallbladder is full and the bile is sticky. ***Bleeding. Pulmonary congestion, hemorrhage, edema. The long bone became liquid and lost its normal hardness. FPV infection is characterized by rapid onset, short course and high mortality. In recent years, the author used interferon combined with high immune serum for specific treatment, and at the same time with symptomatic treatment, achieved good therapeutic effect, greatly reducing the mortality rate, but the disadvantage is that the cost is high. Therefore, we should give priority to prevention and vaccinate as soon as possible and on time. Since there is only one serotype of FPV, the vaccines used have long-term effective immunity. There are three kinds of vaccines to choose from: formaldehyde inactivated vaccine, inactivated cell vaccine and attenuated vaccine. The first immunization was given to the kittens born 49-70 days old, and the second immunization was conducted at 84 days old. After that, we should strengthen the immunization once a year. For the young cats who did not eat colostrum, it is not suitable to use live vaccine for vaccination under 28 days old. The high immune serum (2ml / kg) can be injected first, and then the vaccination can be carried out according to the above immunization program after a certain interval of time. As FPV can be transmitted vertically through placenta, the attenuated live vaccine may cause harm to the fetus. Therefore, it is recommended to use inactivated vaccine in pregnant cats. reference material: http://www.91if.com/Html/mmpd/080628937.shtml

       Usually cat plague is not transmitted to people, but the cat plague virus will survive indoors for a long time. If the home is not thoroughly disinfected, the virus will infect new cats again.

       First of all, you must immediately isolate the cat and take the healthy cat for vaccination and serum.

       Indoor disinfection must be thorough. In addition to keeping the sick cat in cage, destroy everything that has been used by the sick cat, such as nest and tableware. The places it has been to, especially under the sofa and bed, should be carefully cleaned with venom three times, and then try not to let other cats touch these places within 30 days. Feline plague is almost fatal to young cats, and the infection is also very rapid, so we must make all kinds of preparations.
