Yes, cats can die from Cat Flu (Feline Herpes Virus/ Feline Virus Rhinotracheitis/Feline Calicivirus), however it seldom causes death in previously healthy cats. Kittens and older cats are more at risk from Cat Flu.

Can you give cat flu to other cats?

No. Cat flu can only infect cats. Cat flu, like a human cold, is contagious, so cat flu can spread quickly in a multi-cat household. If your cat starts sneezing, become lethargic, off its food, has mucus coming from its eyes or nose you should take them to the vet & have them checked out. Most vets will often prescribe a week-long dose of antibiotics. Never use your own medicine on your pet.
