It hasn't been as widespread in four decades, so the return of the cat plague in Australia is a terrible concern for cat owners right now. It is deadly and also known as feline parvo, and it's being seen in lots of strays in the Melbourne area. There is a simple way to prevent the plague, and it's just vaccinating your cats.
The disease is particularly ugly, causing a lot of pain and severe symptoms. Cats can become lethargic, start vomitting and having bloody, loose stools and suffer through lots of pain before suddenly dying. It's something that people should make every effort to prevent in order to keep not just their pets but other animals safe and healthy as well.
