2 min read


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.
