Rotavirus Infection In Cats
Rotavirus is one of the common causes of diarrhea in cats. Rotavirus infection causes inflammation of the intestines leading to compromised function. While the problem can affect cats of any breed or age, the most susceptible are kittens and senior cats. The main route of infection is contact with fecal matter of infected cats. Stress, poor living conditions, compromised immune systems, and multi-cat households have the greatest risk of acquiring the infection. The classic symptom of infection caused by rotavirus is mild to moderate watery diarrhea. Without medical intervention, severe diarrhea can become life-threatening. Bring your pet to your animal hospital Green Bay, WI for a thorough checkup and diagnosis so the problem can be addressed appropriately.
