What can we do to help our sick kitten as it tries its best to fight off the illness? (We know that cats don’t like water, towels and other things used for bathing).
The first thing you should do is give your cat a warm bath. You may use a mild detergent or an antibacterial soap. Never use any type of scented soaps and shampoos because they will irritate your skin and cause additional problems for your kitten.
After the bath, let your kitty dry itself thoroughly with clean towels or paper towels before putting on some warm cloths. This will not only make the kittens feel better but also prevent them from developing secondary infections such as pneumonia by encouraging their immune system to function properly again after the acute illness has subsided. Your veterinarian may prescribe antibiotics if necessary at this time. Keep in mind that these medications are meant to treat bacterial illnesses which he/she could be treating with an antibiotic medication prescribed by his/her doctor, not viral illnesses which are related more to viruses than bacteria! Too much medication given at one time could potentially kill too much beneficial bacteria in the intestines causing diarrhea instead of helping heal wounds or stop infection! This is why it’s important for you take good care of yourself too during this whole process – proper nutrition including appropriate amounts of vitamins A & C, Zinc & Omega 3 fatty acids are very important when healing from stress caused illness especially if there are high stress levels underfoot!
