Cat Scratch Fever

Cat scratch fever, also referred to as cat scratch disease, is an infectious bacterial disease associated with cat scratches or bites. Kittens are more likely to transmit the infection than adult cats, so it is important to remember not to play too rough with kittens who may scratch. While the disease is generally not life-threatening, it can still lead to unpleasant and painful symptoms for the victim.

If you or a loved one is suffering from cat scratch fever after being scratched or attacked by someone else’s pet, contact the Michigan cat scratch fever attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 877-PET-BITE for a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.

Symptoms of Cat Scratch Fever

Symptoms of cat scratch disease may not appear until a few days after the bite or scratch occurred and can last as long as a few weeks. Fortunately, the disease is rarely very serious. The use of antibacterial creams, lotions, or ointments can help speed up recovery and is highly recommended because it can help reduce the likelihood of a serious infection. Common symptoms of cat scratch fever include:

  • Swelling and pain in the lymph nodes
  • Achiness and discomfort
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Backache
  • Abdominal pain

While it is fortunate that cat scratch fever is rarely life-threatening, the symptoms can still be painful and uncomfortable for victims. Additionally, medical visits may be required for more serious cases of cat scratch fever, and if you have been attacked by someone else’s cat, you should not be required to pay for these medical bills alone.
