cats vagina swollen

by Valerie
(victorville,ca u.s.a.)

My cats vagina seems to be swollen and she has been constantly licking at it. She is very irritable and even growls at me when I go near her. She was in heat last week and I did see her have males mount her. Is this a sign of infection?

Answer by KAte
Hi well it is possible that she may have an infection, a discharge is often seen when this happens.

It could be that she is just sore from being mated, it can be quite a painful experience for a cat.

So it is difficult to say at this point. Wait to see if any further symptoms develop before visiting the vet.

best wishes Kate
