Scott Nimmo :

My name is Scott and I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.

Scott Nimmo :

This is not good, it is possible that she has some form of infection related to giving birth such as a womb infection or perhaps she has retained afterbirth

Scott Nimmo :

I wish I could resolve the matter for you via the internet but it is very possible that prescription drugs such as antibiotics will be urgently required.

Scott Nimmo :

As there is really nothing you can hope to do on a home remedy basis my advice has to be to have a vet examine her without delay.

Scott Nimmo :

the fact she gave birth two weeks early could be related to this, and one week after giving birth cats could be a bit immune depressed and so more open to infections.

Scott Nimmo :

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,


Scott
