Cats/Kitten vaginal odour


Hi, i got a kitten a couple of weeks ago, not my first, but lately ive noticed a really bad odour coming from her genitals, i was wondering what it might be? And if its normal?

sounds like a vaginal infection. if so this will need treatment from a vet otherwise the infection could get worse and even threaten the kittens life.

It is awasy better to be safe than sorry especially when you are dealing with kittens as they can go down hill quite quickly.

I hope the vet can clear the problem up soon.

best wishes Kate
