Intestinal tract is an important part of the immune system. Intestinal inflammation and food allergy are common symptoms of immune system diseases.
Damage to the digestive system can lead to diarrhea.
Diarrhea is sometimes accompanied by pain and vomiting, or blood or mucus in the vomit. It can also lead to appetite disorders, behavioral disorders or malaise. Based on the symptoms of the cat, we can determine the causes of diarrhea, including:
¡¤Food allergy or hypersensitivity;
¡¤Virus (enteritis, feline leukemia virus, AIDS): ¡¤ bacteria; ¡¤ drugs;
Treatment: diarrhea can be treated according to symptoms. After understanding the incentives, let the cat fast for a few hours, but can drink water. Liquid therapy is effective for severe diarrhea caused by enteritis.
Experts suggest that cats should be fed a diet similar to that of their gut flora. Don’t use antibiotics unless it’s a bacterial infection.
If your cat has been sluggish, feverish, or bloody stool, see a veterinarian immediately.

In general, the cause of colon enlargement cannot be found, but it may be caused by diet, trauma and neuromuscular diseases. Sick cats may vomit, be depressed, have anorexia and have difficulty defecating.
Treatment: the fluid from the cyst was drained by the veterinary extrusion. If the cyst has spread to the skin, causing drainage abscess, the veterinarian will prescribe antibiotics.
Obesity is the most common cause of abdominal distention. Other causes include: tumor, ascites and general enlargement of organs. Ascites, caused by infectious peritonitis (see below) or liver disease, is a common disease. Organ enlargement is caused by infection, immune system disease or hyperthyroidism. If your cat’s abdomen is swollen and you don’t know why, take your cat to a veterinarian.
When cats eat bones, root foods, peach stones, sweet potato chips, corn bone sticks, children’s toys and iron wire, fish hooks, plastic products, etc., which cause these substances to stop in the esophagus, it will cause foreign bodies in the cat’s esophagus. When a pet cat appears this condition, it will become tense and nervous. The head and neck will stretch out from time to time. If the treatment is not timely, it can cause local inflammation, infection or necrosis.
In addition to the possible presence of foreign bodies in the esophagus, cats may also have foreign bodies in the stomach.
This is mainly due to the fact that cats ingest indigestible foreign bodies, such as large bone, wood, stone, plastic, cloth, metal, etc., which stay in the stomach, resulting in gastric dysfunction and secondary chronic gastritis. The sick cat has anorexia and intermittent vomiting, which causes a long-term decrease in appetite, vomiting and emaciation of the cat. The body weight is gradually reduced, and abdominal pain symptoms occur. When standing or lying on the ground, you can see bow waist, muscle tremor, and sensitive abdominal pain before palpation.

According to experts, there are many causes of urethral diseases in cats and cats, among which the most important is urinary tract stones. The growth environment, feeding methods, reduction of cat’s daily exercise and drinking water diet will have an impact on the cat’s urinary tract stones.
There are many kinds of common diseases that harm the health of cats. In daily life, the breeders should learn more about the diseases of cats. Learn how to prevent the common diseases of cats, and also know the diagnosis methods of common diseases of cats. When abnormal physical conditions are found in cats, timely diagnosis and treatment should be given, so that the pet cats can recover as soon as possible and avoid the disturbance and invasion of diseases.
Cats usually change their daily life and rest habits in the early stage of illness. Although it may not be obvious, it is not difficult to find out if the excrement removal officers observe it carefully. Of course, if it is a multi cat family with several cats in the family, it may find it more difficult. However, as long as you have the heart, I believe you can find the cat in time and help the cat deal with it. When a cat has the following abnormal conditions, it means that it may have been sick.
The cat has obvious eye droppings and tears
Cats, like people, will also have some eye droppings attached to the corners of their eyes when they just wake up. Normal eye droppings can be cleaned as long as they are wiped gently, so there is no need to worry too much.
The condition of the cat’s eyes may be caused by the following diseases:
Cats have runny nose and secretions
When the cat’s nasal mucus changes from clear to yellow green purulent secretion, it indicates that the cat’s inflammation has become chronic. At this time, if it is not treated, it will cause the cat’s nasal congestion, loss of appetite, spirit and weight.
The cat drools and has bad breath
Saliva has the function of sterilization and lubricant, and digestive enzymes in saliva can also help digest some food. Under normal circumstances, saliva will naturally flow into the esophagus, but when there are oral problems, saliva will not flow into the esophagus normally, and become the mouth outside the mouth. However, some cats will always drool when they are nervous or eat something they don’t like, such as drugs. We need to make a judgment according to the actual situation.
When a cat’s mouth, whether it is teeth or oral mucosa or tongue, if there is inflammation, it will make its mouth stink, which is the same as that of human beings. In addition, when the internal organs have diseases, the symptoms of halitosis may also appear.
When a cat has drooling or bad breath, the possible diseases are:
The cat coughs or sneezes constantly
Coughing or sneezing caused by irritating the nose or choking when drinking water are normal physiological phenomena, so don’t worry too much.
But if it is frequent, keep coughing or sneezing, it may be because of the disease caused by inflammation of the nasal mucosa symptoms. When sneezing, nasal discharge and tears are produced at the same time, which indicates that the cat has the possibility of upper respiratory tract infection or some kind of allergy.
When a cat is infected with tracheitis and pneumonia, the cat will give out a clucking sound, similar to human asthma. Many excrement removal officers mistakenly think that the cat is retching when they are inexperienced, but they can’t vomit, so they regard the symptoms as vomiting.
Cats have difficulty breathing
In the hot summer, cats may also be short of breath because of heat, and even open their mouths to breathe. In this case, it can be done to prevent heatstroke and cool down.
Diseases that may cause dyspnea include:
As a excrement removal officer, you need to be familiar with your cat’s physical condition and living habits, so that you can take care of your cat’s health.
