My cat is pregnant and bleeding

cat pregnancy

One of the big concerns when the cat is pregnant is that she may have problems to the point of endangering the kittens. However, not all situations are abnormal as it may be that while pregnant you have some bleeding because it is usually the most normal although it puts us on alert.

Especially if you bleed in the first week it is because one of the kittens has died and the blood it expels is the resultLet's say it is a kind of cat abortion, as we speak of just a few days of gestation, it does not pose any problems for the mother because naturally the cat's body is capable of absorbing the dead fetus without harming her or her life. rest of the kittens.

If we talk about this case the blood that the cat expels will be very clear, as when it is in heat and will last between 2 to 4 days, it is the sign that indicates that the cat's organism has disintegrated the dead fetus and is expelling it. As for the state of the pussycat it will be completely normal, it will not affect its life at all and it will be as active as ever. There is no treatment for this because it is a completely natural system.

It may happen that the cat expels the darker greenish bloodThen you do have to go to the vet for an ultrasound and find out the true state of the kittens. This can be a sign that you have an infection in the uterus and then it is the specialist who takes the best measures for the cat and the kittens.

Mostly it can make your labor early or even not a bad thing and just be a natural processIt all depends on the results of the tests they perform.

    My cat is 56 days pregnant. She has been spewing droplets of light red blood for two. I don't have to take her to the vet. Is it a sign that she is going to give birth soon? He licks a lot and acts as usual, eating and moving.
    In July it was abandoned at my door, it was small, now it will be a year old and the protector did not help me to sterilize it.
    In an oversight she ran away and came back pregnant. And well, I hope someone can answer me.
    Thank you very much

      Hi Inma.
      Yes, she will surely give birth soon. Anyway, to be safe, I would recommend consulting with, which is run by veterinarians. The consultation is free.
      A greeting.

    My cat has just been bitten by some dogs and is pregnant (it was not long)
    I live in a field and I don't have to take her to a vet since the town is far away and the vet told me that tomorrow she will be able to come see her for her time, but she doesn't want to tell me that I can do something for her.
    It has no deep bites just barely grabbed
    Now it's bleeding what can I do?
    Could it be that it is an abortion?

      Hello Ale.

      Sorry, but we are not veterinarians.
      What I do tell you, do not give him any medication as it can be worse.

      Hopefully everything ends well.
