Symptoms of Cat Scratch Fever

Posted on March 27th, 2014 No Comments

Cats can be fun and entertaining pets. Unfortunately, because of their feral nature, cats often acquire harmful dirt and bacteria on their claws. If you are scratched by a cat, you could develop a potentially dangerous bacterial infection.

The bacterial infection caused by cats, colloquially known as cat scratch fever, can cause serious harm to infected people. Though cases of serious infections seldom occur, the symptoms may last for more than a week. A person may have a cat scratch fever if the following symptoms are present:

  • The infected area has blister that is similar to a bug bite.
  • The lymph nodes near the scratched or bitten area become swollen.
  • Headaches, backaches, and high fever.

If you have contracted cat scratch fever after being scratched or bitten by someone else’s cat, you shouldn’t be responsible for covering expenses related to the infection. The attorneys at Ravid & Associates, P.C., help Michigan people pursue compensation for their injuries. Call our offices at 877-PET-BITE.
