How is cat flu diagnosed?

The symptoms of cat flu are similar to those of other respiratory illnesses. Your vet will take a thorough history and perform a thorough physical examination. Your vet may recommend tests to rule out other diseases that may be contributing to the cat’s symptoms.

How is cat flu treated?

Cat flu is treated with antibiotics that are effective against a wide variety of respiratory infections. Your veterinarian may recommend hospitalization if the cat has other signs of illness or is exhibiting severe symptoms.

How can I prevent cat flu?

Cats are naturally susceptible to respiratory infections such as cat flu. They may acquire the virus from other cats, from the environment (including garbage cans), or from their owners.

To prevent cat flu, avoid contact with other cats. Wash your hands with soap and water before and after handling your cat.

Additionally, keep your cat’s litter box clean. If you have multiple cats, keep them separated.

For more information, please contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA's Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435.
