Why do cats have diarrhea?
Cat diarrhea is diarrhea, which is a syndrome of indigestion and malabsorption. The clinical manifestations of the sick cats were increased defecation frequency, fecal moisture content, fecal shapeless, and even water spray.
The causes of diarrhea in cats are quite complex and diverse. There are virus induced diarrhea such as feline distemper (also known as infectious enteritis); diarrhea caused by bacteria, such as Pasteurellosis and colibacillosis; and diarrhea caused by genetic defects, such as Persian cats. However, the majority of diarrhea in cats is caused by gastroenteritis.
Diarrhea caused by gastroenteritis in cats is mostly caused by excessive eating, eating rotten food and hard to digest bones, eating hair, plastic toys, paper, wool and other foreign bodies, taking aspirin and other stimulant and corrosive drugs, such as arsenic, mercury, lead, carbonic acid, etc., as well as cold, malnutrition and sudden change of feed. Whatever the cause of gastroenteritis, the common symptom is diarrhea (diarrhea), which leads to dehydration and weight loss in cats. At this time, the main performance of the cat is listlessness, loss of appetite, vomiting and abdominal pain, diarrhea, fecal odor. Intestinal mucosal bleeding is also black or black green stool, or with blood, blood clots and other symptoms.
(1) To eliminate the possibility of infection of pathogenic microorganisms to cats. The infectious diseases of cats are caused by the invasion of certain pathogenic microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, etc.) into their bodies. The main sources of infection of infectious diseases are cats with infectious diseases, cats carrying bacteria, ill treated dead cats and excreta of sick cats (such as feces, urine, etc.). Therefore, the sick cats should be isolated and raised in time. The sick cats must be deeply buried or buried. The cat’s nest, food utensils and bedpan should be disinfected regularly. The bedding materials of the cat’s nest should be changed frequently. The food fed to the cat should be cooked food. The drinking water of the cat should be disinfected by bleaching. In addition, keeping the air circulation in the cat house and the surrounding environment is a very effective method to reduce some pathogenic microorganisms in cats.
(2) Vaccinate regularly. At present, there is no ideal drug therapy for some diseases of cats, such as feline respiratory virus disease. Therefore, the most effective way is to regularly carry out the corresponding vaccine injection to prevent the occurrence of such diseases.
(3) Strengthen feeding management, scientific feeding. Many medical and surgical diseases in cats are caused by mismanagement, especially in the case of domestic feeding. Therefore, only by strengthening the feeding management and feeding the cats scientifically can the cats grow healthily.
Reference for the treatment of feline laxity
First of all, fluperate and berberine can not be used to treat laxative cats!!! Because some medicine people can take, but for cats is toxic side effects, these two drugs are like this! Remember! Remember!
For a laxative cat, we should first find out the cause of his diarrhea. There are many reasons for the laxity of the cat. Only by taking the right medicine can we have a good therapeutic effect
This is the most common cause of diarrhea, especially in kittens under half a year old. Simple dyspepsia is also called loose stool.
a: Change food
Kitten’s intestines and stomach are very delicate, because the digestive system is very delicate, and also lacks a lot of digestive enzymes, it is easy to cause indigestion when the kitten is less than three months old. If you don’t digest well, you will become thinner and thinner if you don’t care about it. It will cause dehydration, which will be very dangerous. Therefore, please pay attention to the cat’s situation. On the premise that you are sure that you are not infected with any disease (the family environment and food can be kept clean, and the kittens have been immunized), you can stop feeding food that is not easy to digest, such as canned food and meat, and feed two or three pieces of lactozyme at a time, two or three times a day. This will work in one day.
In addition, in this case, you can also try “Mami love” (Duowei rujunsan, which can be bought in pharmacies, is for * *) One small tube at a time, powder mixed in cat food or directly fed after dissolving, twice a day, the effect is the same as that of lactase. There is also “bowel surgery” also has this effect, you can choose one of the three convenient.
If you need to control your diet, you can starve for about one day first, and don’t overfeed each meal later. Let her stomach and intestines be well prepared. Don’t be nervous when dealing with this kind of diarrhea, but focus on Regulation:)
b: Catch a cold
In autumn and winter, many cats are prone to diarrhea. Generally speaking, as long as the cat’s spirit and appetite are the same as usual, it can be considered that the sudden change of weather and the cause of cold lead to laxity, so we should properly keep the cat warm and regulate his digestion.
The symptoms are that in addition to diarrhea, the cat’s mental state is not good, and the body temperature is elevated. In this case, the symptoms of cats are very similar to that of feline infectious enteritis (cat plague). After confirming that the cat has been immunized, the following treatment can be carried out. Otherwise, please go to the hospital for examination and diagnosis as soon as possible.
Gentamicin injection can be taken orally. Drugstores are often filled with 80000 units of 2ml, each time drinking 20000 units, twice a day. It should be noted that after taking Qingda for half an hour, the cat needs to be fed with some digestive aids of living fungi, such as lactamase and mamai’ai, so as to help the cat recover its digestion ability
You can also go to the drugstore to buy “Smecta” for cats to stop diarrhea. Different from Qingda, it takes bacteria out of the body by physical methods.
Need to take medicine to beat insect, had better go to the hospital to do a stool examination first, and then targeted medication.
In addition, because of the diarrhea caused by parasites, blood may be seen in Bb. Conversely, if you see such BB, it is better to test and confirm. It is suggested that the insect repellent should be conducted once every three months to completely eliminate this phenomenon!
Cat laxity is the most important thing to pay attention to observe his mental state and appetite, if there is no difference with usual, give him to regulate the stomach can, if there is fever and poor mental performance should be inflammation, can refer to the above treatment of enteritis or to the hospital examination and treatment.
My feeling about cat laxatives
This is just a little experience left to me by my two lax kings. It may not be professional. We all listen to join in the fun.
As for those drugs, I have been recommended by doctors as Qingda, lactamase, Lactobacillin tablets and Smecta.
Qingda didn’t use it. Lactomycin tablets have anti-inflammatory effect, but the tablets are too big and hard to smash. Dr. Smecta tried to recommend it, but the amount of Smecta my cat ate had no effect. I think, is Smecta suitable for the treatment of acute diarrhea?
Although lactamase is a kind of primary and very cheap medicine, I feel that its conditioning effect is better than the above several drugs, and it may not exert its effect immediately. However, if you take it three times a day for a long time (twice in the later period), it is especially good for cats with slow digestive system dysfunction.
From experience, feline laxity is mostly caused by dyspepsia, lactase is just symptomatic treatment, so the effect is good. Smecta’s principle is to wrap bacteria out of the body, if it is not bacterial enteritis caused by diarrhea, there is no effect.
Talking about the medicine of cat’s gastroenteritis
Cat gastroenteritis is a very common cat disease, manifested as: vomiting, diarrhea and mental disorder. The most common reason is due to dyspepsia, in the medication to pay attention to the following points¡ª¡ª
1. Regulating digestive system
Recommended drugs: lactase, multienzyme, Lactobacillus, animal micacola, Lizhu Changle, Zhengchangsheng and other living fungus drugs. Help your cat regulate your digestive tract flora.
Regulating the digestive system for three days does not have a big effect. It can be considered to eliminate intestinal inflammation for cats.
There is a problem in the choice of anti-inflammatory drugs: 99% of intestinal infections are caused by bacilli. The best choice to deal with bacilli is sulfur gentamicin, kanamycin and other drugs. Because of its high molecular weight, gentamicin will not be absorbed by the visceral organs, so it is the first choice for cats to deal with intestinal inflammation.
It should be noted that after taking anti-inflammatory drugs for half an hour, the cat needs to be fed with some digestive drugs of living fungi, such as lactamase and mamai’ai, to help the cat recover its digestive capacity.
Take some smecta, one and a half small bags, twice a day, to stop diarrhea. Don’t feed for the time being. Let the stomach rest for a while, and then drink gentamicin. Qingda granule for children is the best. If not, you can also drink injections, 40 W units a time and a half. But the injection is bitter. It is estimated that it is difficult to feed, so it is better for children.
Do you want to take them to the hospital? My cat used to do the same, it’s gastrointestinal disease, maybe chronic enteritis or chronic gastritis, the disease is not very serious, but to remove water, injection, and then pay attention to maintenance, can not eat raw and cold things. Also, Weijia’s food is not good, do not eat, my cat eat that can also spit!
In view of the problem of cat laxity in Bai and Bai, I would like to list some knowledge about how to raise Dao cats in order to help the new owners.
First of all, to understand the symptoms of cat plague
If cat plague is serious, there will be fever. In addition, diarrhea, vomiting, do not eat or drink, mental malaise, so if there is no such situation, just simple laxity, no vomiting, still very energetic, normal eating, drinking and sleeping, most of this can exclude cat plague.
Secondly, understand the solution of partial laxity
Cats are lax. They don’t vomit. They are energetic. They have no problems eating and drinking. One is to see if there is a food problem. Don’t feed people’s food casually. After all, pet cats are different from domestic cats in rural areas. There are also those who normally feed cat food. Pay attention to the quality of cat food and the way to change it.
One is that the cat’s stomach and intestines digestion is poor. If you eat it, it will cause indigestion and diarrhea. Another is that the improper method of replacing cat food, such as expelling insects, vaccinating, changing environment, etc., will lead to the cat’s stress reaction and diarrhea. In view of this, you can give the cat mew Changyi, such probiotics, to see if it can help the cat recover Return to normal.
Third, see if there are insects, because the parasites in the body are also easy to cause cats to loose. In this case, it is recommended to use anthelmintic in accordance with the type of insect after stool examination, and use the amount of anthelmintic under the guidance of the veterinarian instead of randomly feeding.
Cat plague, the scientific name is feline leukopenia virus, Bai also known as cat parvovirus infection Du or cat infectious enteritis. The course of the disease will not be described, but the diagnosis of Dao.
Generally speaking, there are three diagnostic methods for the diagnosis of feline fever: clinical diagnosis, blood routine test (CBC) and canine fecal parvovirus antigen detection, rather than simply relying on two symptoms: “vomiting, diarrhea”. Clinical symptoms and blood routine diagnosis are common, with high accuracy.
Canine fecal parvovirus antigen detection, which is usually common cat plague test paper. This paper was originally used to detect canine parvovirus, which was not approved for use by cats. However, several studies have shown that the test paper can also be used to detect FPV in cat feces. Its sensitivity and specificity are similar to those of the traditional gold standard reference method.
In addition, some knowledge points should be added, about the common causes of vomiting and diarrhea at the same time
1. Eat foreign bodies or foods that are toxic to cats.
2. Stress reaction, symptoms disappeared in two or three days at most.
4. The intestines and stomach are fragile and change food too quickly, which leads to indigestion.
And some common diseases, such as acute, chronic, viral gastroenteritis and so on.
Cat plague is known as the terminal disease of cats, and the mortality rate is very high. A cat I used to keep had this disease. At first, I thought it was just a common virus infection, but after taking the medicine for two days, it didn’t improve at all. I took it to the pet hospital, and the doctor asked for infusion twice a day. At that time, I was a new employee at work. I didn’t have so much money, so I gave him infusion every morning, and in the afternoon, I injected him. After three days, he was obviously better. But on the fourth day, I thought it was the black hearted veterinarian who didn’t give her any medicine, and finally she left.
I want to tell you that the mortality rate is high, but there is absolutely hope that it will be cured. Bless your cat.
In addition to diarrhea, it is also accompanied by vomiting, increased body temperature, bloody stools, and loss of appetite.
Feline laxity also has other conditions, the main reason is still gastrointestinal problems, most of which are caused by indigestion. Cat laxity can first take meow want probiotics to adjust the intestinal tract, can improve the problem of diarrhea. If there is no effect, it may be that there are parasites in the body. You can give the cat an anthelmintic, such as pet worship. Or gastroenteritis, you can give the cat sulfur gentamicin, two hours later to take probiotics to restore intestinal function.
It’s too small for a one month old cat to be cured by cat plague. Let alone whether it can be cured, a one month old cat should not be bought. You really don’t understand it. In addition, the cat house is really irresponsible. In order to make money, one month old cat is also sold. Pity the cat. It’s not so easy to keep a cat. Since you want to keep a cat, you should take responsibility. After all, a life. Share some knowledge about cat plague. I hope it will help you.
Feline plague, also known as feline panleukopenia and feline infectious enteritis, is a kind of malignant viral infectious disease. Feline plague doesn’t infect humans. You may not be so afraid to hear “enteritis”, but it is the enemy of the immune system for cats.
Generally, the mortality rate of cats under one year old infected with cat plague is about 50%, and that of kittens under 6 months old can reach about 80%.
Cats are highly tolerant animals, which may not be easily detected in the early stage of feline plague. The first symptoms of cats suffering from feline plague are listlessness, anorexia, vomiting and so on. As the owner, should carefully observe the cat’s condition, found abnormal, timely measurement of body temperature.
1. The appetite is not good, even do not eat or drink at all, the mental state becomes worse, or nest in the corner is not willing to move.
2. Obstinate vomiting, vomiting transparent gastric juice or yellow green liquid, high frequency.
3. The body temperature of cats under six months old will rise to 40 ¡æ in the first two days, and will turn to low fever or normal temperature on the third and fourth days, and then rise again.
4. When the symptoms worsen, diarrhea and severe dehydration will occur. Some cats will have abdominal pain and bloody feces when they are serious.
When the cat has vomiting, fever, diarrhea and other similar symptoms, if possible, the following methods can be used for further diagnosis to determine the cat’s disease.
1. Cat plague test paper
Due to the uneven reliability of common cat plague test paper, it is recommended to purchase two different brands of cat plague test paper for testing. If the initial test is negative, it needs to be repeated. If the re test is also negative, the possibility of disease can be basically ruled out. If positive, please send the cat to the hospital for treatment immediately.
2. Professional blood test
Take the cat to the pet hospital for blood test. By judging the changes of blood components, under normal circumstances, the blood test results of a cat suffering from cat plague will have the following changes: the number of white blood cells, neutrophils, lymphocytes, platelets and hematocrit. These indicators may not be obvious at first, but some of them will gradually appear with the development of the disease (especially the decrease of white blood cell count).
After cats suffer from feline plague, it is not recommended that excrement removal officers should treat cats themselves, and try to take cats to special hospitals for treatment.
Cats infected with cat plague usually die of two major causes: vomiting, diarrhea, excessive dehydration caused by not eating or drinking; and too few white blood cells, which lead to sepsis.
The cure of feline fever can only be achieved by the cat’s own immune system, and a series of treatment measures taken by the hospital are actually to buy time for the cat’s immune system. According to the different symptoms of cats for treatment, timely injection of drugs and infusion, heat clearing, anti-inflammatory, anti-vomiting, hemostasis, diet therapy, regulating digestive function.
One Because cat plague virus can attack the intestines of cats, and cats will have vomiting, diarrhea and other symptoms, the traditional idea is that cats need to fast during treatment, but experiments have shown that proper eating of easy digestible, low-fat and low fiber food can make the survival rate of sick cats higher. Therefore, after cats suffer from cat plague, they should stop vomiting as soon as possible according to the actual situation, and eat as long as they can Don’t try to use a needle into the mouth of prescription food (such as Hill’s ad prescription jar), otherwise long-term starvation may lead to other diseases.
2. According to the feedback from those who have cured the cat plague, the belief that they have to survive is very important. If you love it, please send a doctor in time, exchange experience with cat friends, accompany and encourage sick cats.
The cat is out of danger, Congratulations, but still can not be taken lightly. After the recovery of cat plague, the cat’s body will be relatively weak, and the intestinal tract needs a certain period of time to recover. During the recovery period, the cat should be provided with sufficient and normal nutrition to ensure that the cat’s living environment is clean and hygienic, because the messy and high-pressure environment of cats has a great impact on the health of cats.
1. Vaccinate! vaccinate! vaccinate! Important things are to be repeated for 3 times. Feline plague vaccine is the core vaccine that all cats must be injected. Proper application of feline plague vaccine can make the cat get good antibody protection. The point to be said here is that the maternal antibody obtained by the kitten through breast milk will have a certain protective effect, but after 8 to 11 weeks, the maternal antibody will lose its protective effect, and it will interfere with the vaccine to a certain extent. Therefore, the period from then on to 4 months old is a vacuum period. Generally, you can consider taking your cat for vaccination at this time.
2. Regularly and effectively disinfect the cat’s utensils and environment. We must choose a disinfectant with a high level of bactericidal capacity. The disinfectant is tasteless and non-toxic in practice. The smell of cats is 100 times higher than that of humans. Cats use smell as the external perception of food and environmental changes. Therefore, we should protect them. Conditional direct use of SRK pet disinfectant can, our hospital and home are very easy to use.
3. Isolate other cats, infected cats (including dogs) and their used appliances to minimize the possibility of direct contact with pathogens.
The earlier the treatment, the better. The later one day, Maomao’s life will be very dangerous. Especially for Mao, this disease is very dangerous, and delaying one day is more harmful to her life. My cat just came back less than a week ago, because the cat also has an emergency response. If you don’t eat well, you may get this disease. I’ve treated him for six days. Now he’s alive and kicking, but you have to be prepared. Oh, it costs a lot. The treatment of cat plague is much more expensive than that of dogs. But he is a living life. If you don’t save him, he will die!
Cat vomiting is a kind of physiological phenomenon. If it is not caused by cat plague, it is necessary to find out the causes from other aspects, such as eating too much to cause gastrointestinal dyspepsia, vomit yellow water may be caused by gastric juice, or parasite problems. For this, the cat owner can check the vomit of the cat first, and then find out the cause of the cat’s vomit, and then take timely symptomatic measures Measures, do not delay.
1. Ingestion of foreign bodies
If the pet owner does not regularly clean the room, some foreign matters may be accumulated in the room. These foreign objects may be blown into some corners by the wind. The cat will run into the corner when playing, and the dirty things will stick on the cat’s hair. The cat will lick and clean the hair with its tongue, which is easy to eat by mistake. Some cats see that the owners of their pets are not allowed to touch the trash can. The cat with strong curiosity may secretly look for the garbage can when the owner is not at home, and eat the foreign body by mistake. If the cat cannot discharge the foreign body by mistake, it may cause vomiting.
3. Inner hair bulb
Pet owners can observe the cat’s stool to see if there is hair in the cat’s stool. It can’t be ignored that the cat may be vomit caused by the hair ball in the body. The cat often cleans the hair with its tongue. The dead hair and foreign bodies on the cat are likely to be licked into the stomach. The hair can’t be discharged from the body, and the hair ball in the cat’s body will gradually grow larger In case of vomiting, the pet owner can consider giving the cat some cat grass. However, the cat grass is not palatable, so you can feed the cat with Huamao cream.
4. Caused by internal parasites
If there is parasite in the cat’s body, it will also cause vomiting and even diarrhea. You can take the cat to the pet hospital for stool examination. Generally, cats over three months old can be treated with deworming for the first time. If it is confirmed that there are parasites, insecticides should be used under the guidance of doctors.
5. Cat stress response
Cats are more sensitive animals. If there are changes in cat food, environment or vaccination in the near future, the cat may vomit due to stress reaction. For the cat’s stress response, the excrement removal officer can comfort the cat and feed the cat with probiotics.
General doctors will say that it may be feline fever or recommend pet owners to the hospital for examination. Sometimes the data from the tests are more convincing than the doctor’s experience.
Content from Baidu experience, personal is a porter, hope this can help you
Cats with feline plague are not only laxative. Although it can be distinguished from diarrhea stool, it may not be correct if you are not a professional. In addition, the more obvious manifestations of cat plague are fever, vomiting, mental distress, and even not eating or drinking. Pay attention to the medicine if you have such symptoms. Of course, if there is no fever, might as well look at the following causes of diarrhea, in order to better symptomatic find a solution.
1. Catch a cold
When the weather suddenly changes, if the cat is not kept warm in time, it will catch a cold and become lax. After keeping warm, the cat will gradually recover from cold. If it is accompanied by sneezing and runny nose, it means that it is serious. You can feed meow feeling, observe and if necessary, feed antibiotics.
2. The stress response is not good
Sudden changes in the environment, cat food, vaccination, and so on, often lead to the cat’s stress response, thus thinning. It’s also a common thing. In addition, some cats are born with weak intestines and stomach, limited digestive capacity and diarrhea.
In this regard, you might as well try to use meow Changyi to help the cat supplement intestinal beneficial bacteria, observe for a few days, the situation of diarrhea has improved.
3. Parasites in the body
Cats over three months old should be vaccinated and deworming should be done well. If the cat has not been deworming, infected with parasites, it will inevitably loose. At this time, it should be noted that the appropriate anthelmintic should be given to the cat. Remember to use the dose under the guidance of the veterinarian.
4. Acute enteritis and feline plague
Feline enteritis and feline plague are similar, the main manifestations are diarrhea and vomiting, with a fishy smell in the stool, even with blood, fever and so on. If this kind of performance occurs again, the cat should be sent to the pet hospital for treatment in time, and the best treatment time of the cat should not be delayed.
Cat plague is also known as feline panleukopenia or feline infectious enteritis. It is a highly contact infectious 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.
———Laboratory tests: cat plague, also known as feline pan leukopenia, 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).
Symptoms: poor spirit: depressed spirit, rough coat, indifferent to the host’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 included 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.
In addition, cat plague has an incubation period, and sometimes it can be induced by other diseases. You should pay more attention to observation! Good to ensure timely treatment. A good way to treat it is to take serum…
The second is gentamicin and other adjuvant drugs.
