Miscarriage in Cats



For cats that have experienced a spontaneous abortion due to bacteria or parasite, a veterinarian will diagnose the condition and offer a variety of options for medical treatment. In addition, the cat should be carefully monitored for signs of a more serious medical condition.


Living and Management 


Following a spontaneous abortion, there can be a great deal of discomfort and/or some vaginal bleeding or abnormal discharge. In many cases, some long-term bacterial issues arise. Pet owners should carefully observe the behavior of their cat to ensure no serious problems develop.
