Do not release the cat before the spring gate – The Council State Veterinary Medicine Institute (SVA) reports that the salmonella occurrence of last year's famine has been in the winter of 2019.
The SVA has confirmed the cases of salmonella in 165 streets in the first month of the year. The figure is very common with regard to January 2008-2018, in cases where fingerprints are in single cases, and in cases where confirmed in January 395, there was no exceptions.
– It is less than last year, but above all we have seen. We believe that due to the connection between some cases and bird populations, this year it has had a lot of gray fish, "says Elina Lahti, SVA epidemiologist.
January to March is the worst
Smaller birds contribute to mutually friendly relationships, such as poultry feeders and poultry, which increases the risk of spreading birds among themselves. The bacterium Salmonella extends to foreign cats to catch infected birds. The Council therefore keeps cats indoors between January and March.
"If possible, the cat needs to be kept inside the house in the worst time, in the first three months of the year, although it is not always easy to use the cat to stay away," says Lahti.
Wash your hands
An infected cat with salmonella does not always show clear symptoms. Some cats become hungry and lose appetite. Others have become sick in an animal hospital.
– She goes on her own. If cat is a disease, it will be recovered from your home, but at least you should contact a veterinarian who can make an assessment, says Lahti.
SVA is also in charge of poultry stores, trying to keep them clean with hygiene and stop drinking water from the table so that salmonella bacteria can not get into the mouth.
