Parasitic Infection of the Blood Vessels in Cats

Treatment

 

Cats with cytauxzoonosis should be immediately hospitalized and given supportive therapy, which often includes blood transfusions.

 

Living and Management

 

Unfortunately, most infected cats die within two weeks after showing initial signs of the illness. Moreover, cytauxzoonosis is not contagious to humans, but can be transmitted to other cats by blood or tissue inoculation.
