Infographic on URIs in domestic cats

This is a short, very compact infographic on URIs in cats which are better described as the ‘feline viral respiratory disease complex’. The goal is to provide a quick snapshot of this very common cat health problem which plagues stray and feral cats and for them it can frequently lead to blindness through the development of a secondary bacterial infection which ravages the eyes. The only way for a vet to deal with that is the removal of the eyes.

There is said to be a real problem in some catteries, and rescue centres are acutely aware of the dangers of bringing the infection into a facility where it would spread rapidly. Infectious diseases, some more serious that others can lead to mass euthanasia in shelters if things go badly wrong.
