Responsible pet care requires kittens and cats to be taken to the vet for their yearly course of vaccinations, but these cannot protect them for the rest of their lives. The immunity weakens over time and your pet can again become susceptible to disease.
Feline Enteritis is a viral disease that is very contagious and the death rate is high, especially under the age of 12 months. Pregnant cats may lose their young or give birth to kittens with abnormalities, quite often with brain damage.
Symptoms are depressions, loss of appetite, uncontrollable vomiting and diarrhoea, often with blood and severe abdominal pain.
The virus spreads so easily that heavily contaminated areas may need cleaning with a special disinfectant. Cats that do recover may continue to carry the virus for some time and infect other cats.
To check if your Cat is vaccinated against this disease or if you would like to book them in for their yearly check up, please call 62413333 and have a chat with our client relations team.
