Keywords: cats, bordeteliosis, escherichiosis, staphylococcosis, treatment, disinfection


For suspicion of an infectious disease of cats, diagnostic tests were conducted. From the purulent leakages of the nasal cavity of the cat, pure cultures of the Bordetal, Escherichia and Staphylococcus cultures were obtained. Differential environments were used for this purpose. For effective treatment, each of the isolated cultures was tested for antibacterial sensitivity. According to the results, isolated cultures showed the highest sensitivity to gentamicin and enrofloxacin. Given the sensitivity of the isolated microflora, enrofloxacin-50 was used in the range of 0.1 ml per 1 kg of body weight for 5 days subcutaneously. Cats are a kind of animals that are sensitive to antibacterial substances. The choice of enrofloxacin was due to the lack of reactions and sensitivity to this drug in cats. As the immunomodulatory agents, which increase the overall resistance of the body used Katozal and Gamavat. Katozal was used for cats once a day subcutaneously for 5 days, at a dose of 0.5 ml for 5 days. Gamavit was administered subcutaneously at a dose of 0.30.5 ml/kg body weight (therapeutic dose). Tetravit was used as a vitamin preparation. It was injected subcutaneously 0.3 ml; once in 7 days. Improvement of the clinical condition of the diseased animal was observed the second day after the start of treatment; the animal revived, appetite appeared, the mucus-purulent discharge from the nasal cavity stopped. As bordeliosis is transmitted by airborne droplet, air disinfection was carried out using a bactericidal irradiator BactoSfera OBB 36 P with a quartz lamp. To disinfect the bactericidal lamp was switched on every day in the morning and evening for 20 minutes.
