Cat Flu Symptoms
- Loss of Appetite
- Runny Nose
- Extra Ordinary Sleep
If you notice any of the above in your cat, chances are that the feline has come across with the flu virus and needs some TLC.
What You Need To Do
Your cat is under the weather and your duty is to ensure that the cat is properly treated. You can do simple things to ensure that the cat recuperates promptly and the virus does not linger in her system too long.
Ensure that the cat keeps hydrated.
- Ensure that you make up for the cat's loss of appetite by providing alternative nutrients.
- Try giving your cat tuna or sardines, a food that cats just can't resist.
- Give you cat a boost in immune system with some vitamin C. Note:DO NOT give your cat straight vitamin C as this will make her even more unpleasant as it irritates her stomach. Use an alternative such as Sodium Ascorbate Crystals. Give the cat at most 200mg daily for 3-5 days. Look out for any uneasiness in your cat, if you notice this vitamin c does not sit well with the feline, simply discontinue.
Colloidal Silver kills over 650 different diseases and is an alternative antibiotic. It is available at your health food store. I recommend Wellness by Source Naturals 30PPM. Give your cat 1/3 of the recommended dosage 3 times daily for 5 days and then twice daily for 5 days. You can keep her on a maintenance dose once daily after she gets better. It can also be used in her ears and eyes.
A humidifier is great for easing congestion and will help your cat breathe easier. If you don't have one, put her in the bathroom and turn the shower on hot. WARNING: DO not put her in the shower. It is advised that you stay in the bathroom with her for 15 to 20 minutes. Keep your cat in a warm area without drafts. The cat flu is highly contagious, so if you have multiple cats, keep your sick kitty in a different area.
