Hot Weather Concerns for Indoor/Outdoor Cats

A heads-up for cat owners:

We’ve been seeing a lot of kitties recently with high fevers, poor appetites, and signs of upper respiratory tract infections (coughing, sneezing, nasal congestion). We suspect it’s a combination of the poor air quality associated with hot and humid weather and a viral infection, as most of the affected cats are indoor/outdoor pets. Consider keeping your cats inside at least until the heat breaks, and watch your cats closely for unusual symptoms.

Thanks for the head’s up, Lake Harriet Veterinary Clinic!
