Client handout: Understanding cat scratch disease

April 26, 2016

Scratch the old idea that your veterinary team can only help petsuse this handout to help clients understand why to care about cat scratch disease.

Since cat scratch disease (CSD) occurs wherever you find both cats and fleas, your clients-especially cat-owning clients with delicate immune systems-should be made aware of the dangers of cat scratch disease. Using information from the Centers for Disease Control, dvm360 created this helpful handout, with answers to common questions, tips for staying safe, and information on treatment.
