Kitten looks really sick!

by Ed

We have a kitten thats a few weeks old. shed about a hand length long. She has an unusually large stomach and her back legs walk funny. It's weird because she looks like she gets really sick then later she gets all hyper and is running around. We thought she was going to die yesterday and she had a shortness of breath and her eyes look glazed over. She keeps getting sick then getting better and we have no idea whats wrong with her. ANy help would be great thanks!

It is important that you take your kitten to see a vet as soon as possible.

Sometimes kittens can be born with genetic problems which may not be obvious to the layman's eye.

Also kittens especially very young ones like this can pick up infections very easily and will need medical support to get them through it.

Also make sure that she does not have fleas. Kittens with fleas can become very sick indeed.

My advice is to try and not second guess what is wrong but to take them to a see a vet as soon as possible.
