Cold in cats treatment at home

How to treat a cat with a cold

Many of the symptoms that would indicate an ordinary cold in humans, for a cat, in most cases, mean an infectious disease, so it is often necessary to treat not a cold, but something else. Cats can also catch cold, but this happens very rarely. Serious symptoms mean that you urgently need to see a veterinarian, especially if the kitten is sick. The disease, which will cope with an adult cat, can become fatal for a baby.


  1. When the cat has caught a cold, then its appetite is reduced, there is sluggishness and apathy. Vitamins and immunomodulators help the animal to cope with the disease faster. In no case can the pet be treated with medicines for humans. They can have the most unexpected effects, well, if not severely harm the pet. For cats, there are their own medicines, specially developed for them. If the cat is simply supercooled, then it quickly enough recovers itself.
  2. If the cat sneezes, from the nose flows, then he picked up the infectious disease. Even if the cat is homemade, he still had where to get infected - on the soles of shoes people bring from the street a lot of all kinds of germs. Infections in cats are treated with antibiotics, vitamins, immunomodulators. Antibiotics are in tablets and injections, the rest of the drugs are usually injected as injections. Do not try to treat yourself with caudate for colds, all these medicines should be specially reassigned to cats, and the veterinarian must prescribe them. Sometimes, in order to determine the disease, it is required to analyze the mucous membrane of the cat's nose, as well as conjunctiva and the oral mucosa.
  3. The sign of a healthy cat is a wet nose. If it is dry, then it can be caused by both hypothermia and something else: from dehydration to parasites. The cause of a cold in a cat may have been an allergic reaction. The house is full of substances and compounds that are harmful to cats, from all sorts of household chemicals to cosmetics.
  4. If the cat continually sneezes, it's not a cold, but, probably, a foreign object hit him in the nose. Usually cats get rid of such things themselves, but if they have problems, contact the veterinarian immediately.

Chihi and snot in cats may not be a symptom of a common cold, but a disease of a viral origin ( calicivirosis, rhinotracheitis, etc.), and in the spring these diseases in cats become more frequent, especially if the animal does not grafted. It is best to consult a good doctor, not experiment. And I would not go to the sellers in pet stores, they usually just sellers and cat physiology do not know. So cats in an armful and run to the doctor.

Vladislav Leonov

my cat coughed for a cold... It is necessary to go to the viterenarku there to make a ukolchik... for two injections and will pass! without injections in any way !!!

Olga Zakharova

Just go to the pet store, tell me what's wrong with the animals.
There are not just people from the street, but those who understand how to care for animals, treat, etc.
They will advise the right medicine.


Do an analysis of blood and urine, fluorography, ultrasound of the prostate, and in the wind bark!

STORAGE can not be infected. But RINOTRAKHEITOM - quite. The cat picked up from street cats and infected the housewife. After all, the cat is not vaccinated, right? Now take both and go to the vet clinic. On treatment.

In the street you can not only get cold, but also get infected. Therefore, with both of them to the doctor. Even if it is only a cold, it must also be treated.

Natasha Topilina

I advise anyone not to ask anything (meaning sellers in pet stores), and take seals and show the doctor. At us such was with a house cat. cured

Yuliya Ivanycheva

Tetracycline will help. a floor of a tablet in day of 10 days. Symptoms will disappear on day 2-3, but do not stop.
In fact, you have hit big. Cats do not catch cold. This calciviroz or chlamydia and both are not completely cured. Recovered cat remains a virus carrier and can repeatedly infect itself. You need to make vaccinations to cats to avoid this.
And do not feed cats fish, nothing good will come of it. Cats can not fish at all.

if only OK, Google, then there are answers and search. On the sites of the vet clinic, on zooforumam. There are also doctors. On the sick-cat or mea-forum, even exemplary schemes with dosages are prescribed for infectious diseases. Just your cat and the decision about what to give is yours too. To suffer from a conscience, but not to hurt the cat, hardly anyone will want. And without a diagnosis and by eye, only so it will be ..
What can I tell.. In addition to the meow forum and the sick cat, many articles were posted on the website of the zoo. Read about respiratory infections of cats-rinotracheitis, mycoplasmosis, chlamydia.. Colds in cats do not happen


infection in a cat is likely, but not a cold. To the veterinarian it is necessary to carry, to define a virus and treatment to learn or find out.
at home, you can only hurt the cat
