Gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the stomach and small intestine. Catarrhal gastroenteritis (catarrh of the stomach and intestines) - develops in cats due to excessively greedy food intake and overflow of the stomach, and can also be observed with panleukopenia, salmonellosis, staphylococcosis, colibacteriosis and some other diseases. Catarrhal phenomena also occur under the influence of their own intestinal microflora, which has become pathogenic due to exposure to adverse conditions. Most often, gastroenteritis is observed in kittens.

Symptoms: hot and reddened mucous membranes of the oral cavity, warm and dry nose, decreased appetite or extreme fastidiousness in food, fever, intense thirst, constipation and depression. Catarrh of the stomach is often accompanied by vomiting, while the stomach is painful, sensitive to touch. With intestinal catarrh, these phenomena are absent, while with damage to the duodenum, diarrhea appears, and urine turns bright yellow. Feces in catarrhal inflammation are liquid, watery, fetid, mixed with undigested food and mucus.

First aid and treatment: peace and a sparing diet. For 1-2 days, do not feed the cat, give only water or herbal decoctions and infusions, administer sc / gamavit, give Vetom 1.1, lactoferon, polysorb on an empty stomach for 5-7 days. In the future, feed nutritious meat food. It is best to give raw, low-fat meat.

Symptoms of gastroenteritis are vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. See the articles VOMITING, DIOD, and STOMACH (PROBLEMS), taking into account the fact that in this case the problem is more significant, since we are talking about damage to two organs at once, that is, twice as many

  3. Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis in dogs
    1. What is hemorrhagic gastroenteritis (HGE) in dogs? Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis is a syndrome characterized by acute onset with profuse vomiting and bloody loose stools and significant hemoconcentration. 2. What is the reason for the development of HGE? The reason is unknown. Although HGE implies the presence of inflammatory changes, the most likely cause of the disease is a violation of mucosal permeability

    Viral gastroenteritis of pigs (transmissible gastroenteritis of pigs, Doyle's disease and Hitchings) - Transmisille gastroenteritis is a highly contagious viral disease, manifested by vomiting, severe diarrhea and high mortality among piglets up to 2 weeks of age.

    Harry B. Greenberg Introduction. In underdeveloped countries, acute infectious intestinal infections are the leading cause of morbidity in all age groups and mortality among young and young children. In developed countries, acute intestinal infections remain an important cause of morbidity in both children and adults. It was found that the main etiological
  6. Diarrhea (diarrhea)
    Diarrhea (diarrhea) - a single or multiple bowel movements, with a changed nature of the stool from mushy to watery. In young children, which are characterized by a high frequency of emptying and the unformed nature of the stool, it is necessary to determine, with a detailed questioning, changes in the usual properties of the stool (color, smell, etc.), as well as to assess the severity of the water stain.

    Liver diseases (hepatopathies) can have a variety of symptoms, as the liver is the most important intermediate organ of metabolism. In 80% of cases of hepatopathy are associated with diseases of the kidneys, intestines, pancreas and central nervous system. Of the liver diseases in cats, according to Strombeck DR, Guilford WD, 1990) the most common are: hepatitis (22.9%), hepatopathy

    Shmakov M.V. Scientific adviser: Dr. Sc., Professor Gertman A.M. Federal State Educational Institution of Higher Professional Education “Ural State Academy of Veterinary Medicine”, Troitsk. Excessive intake of toxic elements such as nickel and lead into the body of young cattle contribute to the development of gastrointestinal diseases, one of which is gastroenteritis. Gastroenteritis is Severe
  9. Acute systemic infections
    Nausea and vomiting are often observed in many infectious diseases accompanied by fever. Viral, bacterial and parasitic diseases affecting not only the gastrointestinal tract (viral gastroenteritis, toxicoinfection), but also other organs (viral hepatitis, meningitis) cause nausea and vomiting, although the mechanisms of their occurrence are not always clear. Endotoxins or
    According to a survey of nosocomial infections in the United States, gastroenteritis develops in approximately 10.5 people per 10 thousand received in medical institutions. The etiology of gastrointestinal infections can be established in approximately 97% of cases; of which bacteria account for 93%. The predominant bacterial pathogen is C. difficile - 91%, viruses (rotaviruses) account for 5.3%. Allocate

Allergic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract include allergic enterocolitis, enteropathy and eosinophilic esophagogastroenteritis. The role of allergy in the genesis of some other diseases is assumed. CODE ON ICD-K52.9

As a rule, it is established on the basis of subjective and objective clinical manifestations of the disease, taking into account the existing epidemiological prerequisites. The diagnostic algorithm is based on a comparison of the identified disease syndromes. Please note that
