Diarrhoea or upset tummy

Give them one tsp of boiled chicken or white fish and check if the cat can tolerate it, then serve a little more after two hours. Keep your cat on this diet for a couple of days and then mix other foods. For cats with diarrhoea, don’t skip a meal and call your vet if it persists for more than two days.

Cat flu

Symptoms of cat flu are similar to that of a normal cold. They may get ulcers on their mouth and eyes also with a lot of discharge. Wipe the discharge with warm salt water and you can also use Olbas Oil in a vaporiser or on their bed.

Skin problems

Itchy patches are common in cats. Use cool salt water or ice pack on the itchy patches. Prevent your cats from licking their bodies. Skin problems are not life-threatening for your cats. Antibiotic treatments are there for this issue.

Do not force them to eat

Often, pets don’t want to eat anything due to emotional disturbances. But if it persists even after 24 hours, then talk to the vet. You can also warm their food to release the aroma and try some strong ingredient for the fragrance.
