Default Fungus

My cats was once infected with fungus, it all started from the newborn kitten and it spreads very fast.I stop showering them for time and get the vets to jab them all 1 time a week for 4 weeks in continue.

Do not shower them during that time to avoid fever and the growing fungus.And don't use any cream base anti fungus to avoid the pets from being poisoned.

Clean their places regularly and cut the nails to avoid them scratching the effected areas.

The regular vaccination does not stop your pet from infected with fungus, so keep them clean all the time.

See [below] the thick ears of my kitten when infected with fungus..

Oh..this is new to me. I never know that they have injection for fungus. Last time my cat got fungus, the vet gave me Masaleb Syampu to bathe them. Never told me about any injection.

Thanks for sharing.

Tu kira dah teruk kalau sampai idung dan muka.....suruh kawan filin tu jaga kebersihan tempat tinggal dan tempat main2 kucing tu...pasal bila dah baik tapi tempat lama dia masih kotor...kurap tu akan datang balik...suruh dia pakai sarung tangan juga bila nak pegang kucing tu...sebab fungus tu bermacam2 jenis ada yang boleh jangkit kat manusia pun.Cepat cepat bawak gi Vet jangan tunggu lagi...OK

Diana, rasa nya boleh...sebab masa Vee dulu pun waktu kitten gak...dlm 1 month...tapi kena wat ngan ibu sekali...sebab nanti akan berjangkit balik kalau kitten dekat...make sure clean the usual place of them...fungus ni cepat merebak tau..so take good measures...

Like me, previously my kids penah kene fungus teruk sgt2, so I bring them to gov vet, they advise me to take that injection, tapi kene rajin, sbb bukan sekali inject da baik... at least 10-14 days after first injection kene pegi lagi... for second injection, ulang lagi sampai 4 kali tak silap... satu injection they cause me around RM10-15 jerr... tak mahal pun... itu pun sekali ngan vitamin, antibiotic & antifungus pill, tapi kene rajin laa... macam abg din cakap... tempat tido kene bersihkan selalu...

Tok Penghulu, itu bukan penyakit fungus tu ... namanya ialah "mange" (mcm "scabbies" in human) caused by mites which can spread very easily to humans and the animal needs to be isolated from the others.

Ivermectin treatment is given for 4 weeks for a complete cure, either by injection or oral injestion. Mange very often appears first on the ears and spreads to other parts of the body and can get very bad resulting in a lot of suffering for the animal (not to mention the spread of mites to other animals and humans).

Normally, if one cat has mange, you need to treat all the others as well so that you do not end up with a yo-yo situation.

Chitam, tak payah inject ... kasi makan is better (mcm manusia juga, oral is always better than injection, less stress and shock to the system). Dr Netto the very senior and experienced vet dekat Klinik Veterinar Kerajaan PJ pun prefer kasi oral (and cheaper also - dulu Karipapp I only paid beberapa henggit sahaja (kalo tak silap tak sampai RM10 pun utk the whole treatment - vet kata kalo injection RM15 setiap kali - mahal and stressful).

Si Karipapp dulu vet kasi siap-siap ubat dalam 3 syringe kecil utk saya kasi Karipapp makan every week. Saya campurkan (mashed) dlm secubit daging dada ayam early in the morning sebelum kasi kibbles utk 1st meal of the day (jadi dia sungguh lapar dan akan habiskan all the chicken containing the dosage of ivermectin).

Because of ivermectin's toxicity to cats, the dosage is very carefully measured out and at a much lower dosage compared to dogs or humans.
