Urinary sindrome (
FUS ): It
is a desease occurring in males in bigger extent than
females for several reason which are not clear yet.It
results in obstruction of the uretra by clacium oxalate
crystals or metabolic wastes. It results in enhanced
azhotemie in the blood and therefore it might carry
complicances like disidratation or even intoxication
which may result in a real poisoning of the blood.In
rare case, things may develop quite fast and that`s
why it is wise to react immediately as the first possible
syntoms are likely to appear. Syntoms are characterized
by repeated attempts to urinate, difficults in doing
it that can be even painful.It is not uncommon that
the cat starts to urinate outside the litterbox and
sometimes, blood can be mixed to urine as well. If
the cat is showing hunger, vomit or it looks a bit
down in a way, the problem is developping seriously.
In such cases a veterinary consult is raccomended.
In most of cases, a proper diet with low magnesium
level and therefore allowing and favouring higher
ph of the urine, is able to solve the problem in a
reasonable lap of time. In severe cases, when the
uretra is totally obstructed, the cat must be helped
to urinate by a catheter. Thev reason of this desease
can be due to phisical restriction of the uretra and/or
batterial infections that may result in irritation
of the tissues.
This can be also determined by feeding the cat with
high mineral level or due
to disorder in the cat`s metabolism. Once a cat resulted
sick and eventually recovered, it must be kept under
a proper diet for its entire life given its sensibility
to the problem that may occur again.
FELINE LEUKEMIE ( FeLV
): This virus affect the blood and it may
cause tumors or other blood deseases.The gap between
the contact with the virus and the appearance of the
first synthoms may vary and to be delayed even for
Blood test is enough to determine the presence of
the virus. Infection may come from contact with other
cats who are infected even if not showing any signs
of the desease.infected
cats spread the virus in the environment with their
salive, blood and fecal waste.Last research estimated
that the 8% of all the cats is infected. A vaccin
against this virus is available by your vet. It is
wise to vaccinate all the cats living in group and
also the ones living in pet-pension or cat living
without other pet but attending shows or going outdoor.
The progress of this sickness in cats resembles the
one for AIDS in humans. Humans don`t get affected
by this virus and the sick individual has probably
got the virus by the bite of a carrier.
Blood test can easily reveal the presence of the virus
while the real infection could remain silent and unsospected
for years without testing.
ENTHERITE: This viral deseases is majorly
affecting kittens producing even mortality. It appears
with vomit, diarrea, fever.
Although a vaccine is available, in some case, the
cat may recover with a proper antibiotic treatement.
sickness shows noze leaking and eccessive tears, sneezes,
possible fever and possible ulcera in the mouth.
When not treated as should, it may provoque cronicism
in leaking and lunghs problems. Vaccination is raccomended.
Feline Infectuous Peritonitis is the name of this
sickness due to a mutation of FeCV Feline Corona Virus.
Being a mutation, it is quite unpredictable although
its presence is likely to appear among groups of cats
living togheter and therefore it may appear in catteries
as well.Researches are going on although there isn`t
yet any care for it. Only a good husbandry of the
cattery and daily housekeeping of the
environment may minimize the risk of infection. Your
vet will be able to inform you about FIP.
SCRATCH SICKNESS: It is an infection due
to bacteria always present on the cat`s nails. In
the most of cases, it resolves spontaneously although
it may remain silent for weeks and to exploit in an
