#1. Cat Flu

Cat flu is not to be confused with a "normal" cold. Because this disease, which is transmitted in cats by viruses and bacteria, can be fatal if left untreated.

Common symptoms of cat flu include:

Sneezing and nasal discharge
Glued and watery eyes
This disease is particularly common in young cats. In addition, she is considered highly contagious.

Already at the first signs of this cat disease, you should have the symptoms cleared by a veterinarian. Being treated early can prevent serious illnesses. Treatment is usually with antibiotics. Preventively, a vaccination can already be done in the eighth and twelfth week of life. Then an annual vaccination refresh is necessary.

#2. Cat disease

The cat's disease is also known as cat bark and is a highly contagious viral disease in cats. If left untreated, it can also be fatal. Typical symptoms include:

Weariness and lack of movement
High fever
Serious illnesses can be avoided by early treatment. Therefore, the veterinarian is at the first sign or a suspicion to visit directly.

As a rule, treatment with interferons, serum antibodies, and infusions prevents dehydration. Preventive vaccination in the sixth and twelfth week of life is also possible in the case of cat disease. A refresher is then every one to three years usual.

#3. Ectoparasite infestation in the cat

Cats can be affected by a variety of different parasites. Particularly common are cats with clearance as well as cats affected by contact with free-range animals. Common parasites include:

mange mites
ear mites
When the flea infestation cat often flea aid, which is offered in pet shops as well as the veterinarian. The infected cat is just as clean as the environment.

Ticks, however, can be removed directly, for example with tick tweezers. Important in the removal is that the animals are completely removed.
Both parasites are offered spot-on preparations for prevention. As a natural alternative to ticks in the cat, I can highly recommend unrefined coconut oil in organic quality! If you rub your cat with it every 2 days it will be avoided by ticks and fleas, as they do not like the smell.

In case of infection by mange mites or ear mites, however, a veterinary visit is advised. A mange mite attack can be manifested for example by particularly intense and strong scratching and a flaky coat.

Frequently, the affected cats already encrusted areas on the ears, paws as on the head. For ear mites, however, speaks that the cats scratch the ear and shake the head heaped. The veterinarian can clean the ears. In addition, there are spot-on preparations against these two mite species.

For fleas, frequent scratching and, in case of advanced infestation, bald spots in the coat of the cat are a sign. With a flea comb, the infestation can be detected, if it is combed out flea feces. Spot-on preparations also help against fleas in the cat.

#4. Endoparasite infestation in the cat

Endoparasites do not infect the cats externally, but these parasites infect the small intestine. They are called roundworms, tapeworms or hookworms and are usually five to ten inches long.

These worms can affect not only cats but also humans.

In cats, the infection often takes place via prey or its faces. Transmission via breast milk is also possible, which is why kittens can be affected.

For infestation with worms, the following symptoms can be said:

Shaggy coat
Roundworms can be detected on the faces of the cats. A vet can prescribe a worming cure in this case, which can also be done preventively.

By the way, worm cures are cheaper on the internet than at the vet. But you should absolutely agree with your veterinarian the gift of funds (in cats mostly spot-on-funds)!
Spot-on funds are available against all parasites that can occur in cats. They are simply dropped on the coat on the nape of the neck.

#5. Chronic renal insufficiency
Chronic renal insufficiency (CRF) is particularly common in older cats. Renal function decreases steadily in this cat disease, which often leads to cat death. The symptoms of chronic renal failure in cats include Increased thirst and thus increased urinationfatigueanorexiaDull coatVomitweight lossSweetish and intensified smell from the mouth although this disease is not curable in cats, the vet can still provide relief and slow the disease process. Therefore, if you suspect this disease, you should immediately consult a veterinarian.
