Can All Cats Spread The Virus?
Afternoon, I want to ask whether all cats can spread the virus?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Cats are one animal that can be a hotbed of disease transmission. Several types of diseases that can be mediated by cats include cat scratch disease, scabies (scabies), intestinal worms (ancylostoma, toxocara), dermatophytosis (fungal infections), toxoplasmosis, giardiasis, rabies, and so on.
Of course, not all cats will transmit the above diseases to people who come in close contact with them. Usually, cats that need to be wary of being able to transmit the above diseases are stray cats, or pet cats that are not well cared for by their owners and are not given complete vaccinations to increase their immunity against the disease.
However, as a preventative measure, you should be careful when dealing with cats or other objects that may be contaminated with cat feces, fur, or saliva. If you have a cat, always keep it clean, and take him to the vet to have his health checked at the same time given a vaccination that suits his needs. Clean periodically the things around you, especially those that are in frequent contact with cats. Use gloves when bathing your cat and cleaning the cage.
Hope this helps ...
