Additional notes about cat enema

Caution should be used when administering cat enema to a cat that is not yet acclimated to the procedure.

Cat enema should never be administered to a cat that is vomiting or has a fever.

Because enema catheters are very small, they can be easily dislodged, which can be painful and dangerous. The cat should be kept in a quiet place and allowed to relax for a few hours after the procedure.

Cat enema should be performed by a veterinarian or veterinary technician.

Before cat enema, certain tests should be performed to ensure that the cat is an appropriate candidate for the procedure. The cat should be in good health and be eating and drinking normally.
