Tetanus in a cat
Keywords:Tetanus, Clostridium tetani, Cat
AbstractThis article reports a tetanus case in a 3-year-old male cat 8 days after bilateral orchiectomy, where the animal historic associated with laboratory and clinical findings defined the diagnosis. Even after treatment, the case developed to generalized tetany and death. In this case, the neurotoxin action in skeletal striated musculature of urethral sphincter was an aggravating factor for this disease, causing retention of urinary bladder and postrenal azotaemia.
