Lymph Node Inflammation (Lymphadenopathy) in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Prescribed treatment and medication will be dependent on the underlying cause of the lymph node enlargement.

 

Living and Management

 

Some infections are zoonotic, meaning that they can be transmitted to humans. Systemic diseases, like sporotrichosis, Francisella tularensis, Yersinia pestis, and Bartonella spp, are zoonotic. If your cat is diagnosed with one of these zoonotic diseases, ask your veterinarian what precautions you will need to take to avoid infection.
