Feline plague, also known as feline panleukopenia, is characterized by a sharp decrease in 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. 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.
Clinical symptoms include high fever, poor spirit, not eating, vomiting is the most important symptom; diarrhea occurs less, but may also occur in the late course of disease, dehydration and secondary bacterial infection are often the causes of sudden death. 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 no fatal complications occur, 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. 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.
Cat plague is hard to treat~
For the problem of vomiting:
1. Indigestion. Feed it some yeast chips.
2. I have a bad stomach. Give it some yogurt or probiotics.
3. There are hairballs in my stomach. Give it hair cream or a small amount of vegetable oil.
4. In addition to cat plague, many other diseases will have vomiting symptoms, such as calicivirus, intestinal coronavirus and other infections, if you are not at ease, or take it to the hospital for review.
Feline plague, also known as feline panleukopenia, is characterized by a sharp decrease in white blood cells. If the cat has a high fever, poor spirit, poor appetite, vomiting, bloody stool, it is necessary to first measure the body temperature and test white blood cells to determine whether there is feline plague infection.
Vomiting is the main symptom of cat plague, diarrhea is very rare, but it may also occur in the late stage of the disease. Dehydration and secondary bacterial infection are often the causes of sudden death.
At present, there is no specific drug and specific means to treat cat plague.
It can be injected with feline fever monoclonal antibody and interferon, and non gastric infusion to 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. The main treatment in hospital was injection of cat plague monoclonal antibody and cat interferon. Of course, prevention is always better than treatment itself, so giving vaccination in advance to protect and protect cats is the best way.
If you are at home, you can try to use traditional Chinese medicine, corresponding virus inhibition, and gastrointestinal symptoms conditioning.
Cat plague is still more afraid of cold, pay more attention to the work of keeping warm. If there are other cats at home, please isolate the sick cats and pay attention to environmental sanitation and disinfection. Pay more attention to rehydration and balance pH. 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 physiological rehydration saline, or pet with liquid electrolysis multidimensional effect is better. Gentamicin can be used to control secondary gastrointestinal inflammation.
If cats vomit seriously, metoclopramide can be used. Metoclopramide is a good antiemetic drug, which is very important during the treatment. There are injections that can be injected or administered orally.
Regulating digestive function and using a large number of antibiotics during the treatment will lead to the disorder of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract of cats. It is necessary to use drugs or health products to regulate the healthy flora of intestinal flora, such as Lactobacillus, mamillai, probiotics, etc. This kind of digestive drugs regulating the intestinal tract should be taken separately from antibiotics for more than half an hour.
Other drugs such as dexamethasone and vitamin C are drugs that help metabolism and can be added according to the situation.
During the convalescent period, we should pay attention to the intake of protein and fat (milk, eggs, chicken liver, etc.) and give them to cats with easy digestion and liquid principle. Add some nutrition cream or pet fragrance properly to help balance the nutrition intake. 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.
Finally, it should be noted that there may be bloody stool in the later stage of cat plague. Therefore, the cat should be injected with hemostatic needle for prevention or take Yunnan Baiyao orally.
I wish the owner’s cat a speedy recovery.
