Pet Tip

Kittens and Birth Infections – Pet tip 241

When kittens are born they are extra small and fragile. This increases their potential of becoming ill or getting an infection. Infections in newborn kittens are quite serious as their bodies are small and they have not built up adequate immunity against many diseases or potential infections that may harm them. This article will focus on three infections that can affect newborn kittens; umbilical infections, toxic milk syndrome and septicemia.

When a female cat (aka a queen) gives birth, she will bite open the amniotic sac that surrounds the kitten. She will then chew through the umbilical cord of the kitten. Normally there are no problems.

Hi catlovers, my name is Marsha. I was rescued on a cold & wet October day with mud caked paws from a swamp road. I sleep right on top of my human Mom, even though I've been here for 13 years almost, I'm still very worried about being cast out again, which I'm promised never will happen. I love my IAMS soft cat food, hate it when it sits for more than an hour though. I like also to sit on top of the stereo as I hate cool weather.  Favourite toy, my humans fingers and toes under the sheets. I've been widowed 3 times, but I'm hoping my human Dad will allow me to have another kitty husband, I miss my last big boy so much.
