Not sure if you cat has the flu?
or maybe you didn’t even know that cats could get the flu? I didn’t til I read this. Here are some common symptoms of feline flu (most commonly caused by two viruses, Feline Calicivirus and Feline Herpes Virus-1):
Swollen, red eyes
Eyes with noticable discharge
Loss of appetite
Ulcerations on mouth or tongue
Joint pain causing limping
Cats with feline flu have fever too but since most people don’t often check how hot their cat feels, sometimes a vet has to determine if they have a fever. The other symptoms are much more noticable to the alert cat lover.
Most feline flu is caused by two viruses, Feline Calicivirus (FCV) or Feline Herpes Virus-1 (FHV-1)
See your vet for proper diagnosis.
