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.

I love to lounge around all day long. In the summer time I stay outside all the time and only come inside for food and a pet. During winter when it is freezing outside I'm inside all the time except to use the potty. When inside I love to get long, luxury pets from my owners and then go upstairs to sleep in my owner's warm bed all day long and night.
