Cytauxzoonosis causes severe illness, and in most infected cats, the course of disease is rapid. Supportive care and antiprotozoal drugs have had inconsistent therapeutic results and limited success in treating cytauxzoonosis. In the past, nearly all cats died of the initial clinical illness within one week, but recently some cats have survived without veterinary care, which suggests the existence of a less fatal strain of Cytauxzoon felis, the pathogen that causes this disease. In this two-hour VETgirl webinar, Dr. Holly Brown, PhD, will review the underlying infectious nature and disease pathway, pathophysiology, clinical signs, and overall treatment of this feline infectious disease.
