Eclampsia (milk Fever) - personal experiences

Eclampsia (milk Fever) experience by - Rosie
Elkader, Iowa USA

I found our female cat meowing and draging her hind legs around. She was in her third week of nursing 9 kittens. She couldn't have them so we had to take her to the Vet and have a cecarian done. I immediately removed her from the kittens and put her in a separate place. The only thing I could think of that was wrong with her was milk fever. We didn't have the money to take her back to the Vet so we kept an eye on her by 12 hours later she was up and about. We immediately started feeding the kittens. After 24 hours we let her nurse the kittens once or twice a day. A couple days later she went into the same symptoms. We again isolated her. We didn't think she was going to make it this time. She was a lot worse and crawled all around the room. About 24 hours later she seemed to be alright. We didn't let her nurse the kittens again. It is now about 3 weeks later. She doesn't seem to have any lasting after affects of her ordeal.
