How To Prevent And Control Feline Upper Respiratory Disease

Since vaccination is not entirely effective, and calicivirus and rhinotracheitis are prevalent, some control measures are frequently necessary in places where cats are in close proximity, e.g catteries and boarding facilities. Prevention measures and suggested controls include:

  • Give vaccinations regularly.
  • Solely admit cats that are already vaccinated.
  • Individually house cats.
  • Separate cat showing signs of disease or known carriers like clean and feed their cages last and sneezing from cats.
  • Use cages, pens, bowls, and litter boxes that can be disinfected easily.
  • Soak items that are used such as bowls in a 1:32 solution of bleach for some hours and then don’t reuse for at least 24 hours.
  • Get solid partitions between pens and give an aisle between the cages’ fronts for approximately 4 feet wide.
  • Design pens so that the litter and dishes can be separated from the pen without opening the door.
  • Disinfect and wash hands upon handling cats or utilize individual pairs of rubber gloves for every cat.
  • When a cat is removed permanently from a cage or pen, you must disinfect the cage and let it remain empty for two days before reusing it.
  • Give an adequate control humidity, temperature, and ventilation.
  • Prepare foods in a place that are away from the cats.
  • Before breeding or during pregnancy, you must vaccinate female cats.
  • Try to keep you cats as stress-free as possible.
  • You must not breed female cats who has preceding litters of kittens with respiratory diseases.
