  1. bacterium Escherichia coli. E. coli normally resides in the lower intestines of most warm blooded mammals, including dogs and cats. Normally, the presence of E. coli is benign, and even beneficial, but in some cases it can cause a diseased condition, especially in newborn puppies and kittens.
  1. infection is most commonly seen in puppies and kittens in the first weeks of life. In the first day after giving birth, mothers produce watery milk that is rich in antibodies. This milk, called colostrum, plays a pivotal role in protecting a newborn puppy or kitten’s undeveloped immune system against various infections, as it coats the intestinal tract, protecting the puppy and kitten from most infections. In the absence of these antibodies, newborns are more vulnerable to a number of infections, including E. coli infection.

If the pregnant dog is infected with E. coli, the bacteria can also invade a puppy or kitten’s blood supply while it is still in uterus, during birth, or the puppy or kitten can acquire the infection from feeding from its mother's inflamed mammary glands.

Colibacillosis often leads to a condition called septicemia, or blood poisoning, meaning there is a dangerously high presence of bacteria in the blood. Though primarily a disease of young dogs and cats, it can also affect older animals. E. coli infection, when combined with other infectious agents, also increases the severity of parvovirus infection in dogs.

However, risk factors for this type of infection include poor health and nutritional status of the pregnant dog or cat, lack of colostrum (first milk) to the puppy or kitten, unclean birthing environment, difficult or prolonged birth, crowded facilities, concurrent infection/disease, inflammation of the mammary glands in the nursing bitch, and placement of intravenous catheter.
