I have a sick kitten

by ursula

Our young kitten has a runny nose, weepy eyes, is lethargic and for the last few hours has been unbalanced and her head is tilting to one side, also she has no appetite for her foodor drink, what could be wrong with her?

Answer by KAte
well it sounds like it could be a cold or cat flu which is common in un vaccinated kittens. Please see this page for more information.


It is important that the kitten does not become dehydrated and so it may be a good idea to take them to the vets in case they need to be re hydrated.

best wishes and I hope the kitten is ok again soon.
