CAT TIP OF THE DAY

Treats, Snacks, and People Food

Cats love treats! But be sensible. Dispense treats sparingly, one at a time. For added fun and exercise, train your cat to jump for his treats. Many cats learn very quickly to leap and catch the flying morsels in midair. Make sure your cat never samples the following:

  • onions, onion powder, or any food containing these
  • alcoholic beverages-a big no-no, not even a drop!
  • macadamia nuts
  • leaves and stems of potatoes and tomatoes
  • coffee, tea, coffee beans, and coffee grounds
  • chocolate
  • hops (ingredient in beer)

A diet consisting entirely of human foods is not a complete or balanced diet for your cat.

PET TIP OF THE DAY

Teaching 'Drop It' Command

If your dog likes to pick up everything from socks at home to cigarette buts on the street, you need to address this behavior. Do not try to rip, pull, or pry his jaws open to retrieve the object. This will make him think that his find is of great interest to you. Instead, leash your dog and take him somewhere where he'll be tempted, or, set him up by hiding a smelly food wrapper in a boot. Then, when he picks up a forbidden item, command 'drop it' and give his leash a sharp jerk, puling him toward you.

When he's done what you've asked, praise him and engage him in his favorite activity. If he doesn't give his find up, spray your finger with Bitter Apple and touch his gum before you issue 'drop it' command.

PET ARTICLE OF THE DAY

Basic Training: Jumping

There are many flashy tricks your dog can perform if he learns to jump on command. You must proceed slowly and build his confidence. It is very important that he never finds out that there's an alternative to the jump. The easiest way to start your dog jumping is by placing a board in a door way. Here the situation is set up so that if the dog wants to get from one room to another, he will have to go over the board. He cannot go around it or under it. He cannot find another entrance into that room in the first place--you will.

Jump Through a Hoop

Place you hoop in the doorway. The principle is as follows: the dog may not avoid the hoop to get to you or elsewhere. Each practice session, give him a warm-up with the hoop quite low before you ask him to jump as high as he is able. More

Hypergammaglobulinemia
Hypergammaglobulinemia is an excess of gamma-globulins in the blood due to chronic granulomatous inflammations, chronic bacterial infections, liver disease, multiple myeloma, lymphomas, and dysproteinemias.

Glossopharyngeal Defect, Macroglossia in Dogs
Macroglossia, also called bird tongue, is an incomplete development of the tongue in dogs which may be a component of the fading puppy syndrome. Affected puppies have have no interest in nursing and die of starvation. The initial diagnosis of the tongue abnormality is only a part of a complicated, multisystem syndrome.

Spina Bifida in Dogs
Spina bifida is a condition where vertebrae fail to close normally around the spinal cord, leading to motor and sensory problems in areas fed by affected nerves. The condition may be present without clinical signs or may be associated with neurologic defects. Urinary and fecal incontinence is the most common reason for initial examination for the affected dogs.

Protein-losing Nephropathy
In dogs with this disease, the filtering mechanism of the kidneys is defective an the body loses protein. One of the first signs is increased urination and drinking. Excess protein in the urine may be picked up by a urine test. Breeds with a predisposition include Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Bernese Mountain Dog, Labrador retrievers and Golden Retrievers.

Canine Glomerulonephritis
Glomerulonephritis is inflammation of the renal glomeruli (kidney glomerulus) classified by the type of glomerular injuries including antibody deposition, cellular proliferation, and glomerulosclerosis. These structural and functional abnormalities usually lead to other serious kidney complications.

Alloimmune hemolytic Anemia of the Newborn
Alloimmune hemolytic anemia of the newborn results from antibodies made by an individual against another person's red blood cells. These antibodies are able to destroy red blood cells of the fetus.

Fanconi Syndrome
Fanconi syndrome is a generalized renal disorder that can lead to excessive urinary loss of essential electrolytes, uric acid and other organic acids. In humans, dogs, and cats, Fanconi syndrome may be congenital or acquired.

Renal Cystadenocarcinoma and Nodular Dermatofibrosis
Canine hereditary multifocal renal cystadenocarcinoma and nodular dermatofibrosis (RCND) is a rare, naturally occurring inherited cancer syndrome observed in dogs. The diagnosis of RC can be made on suspected carriers by microscopical examination of renal biopsies as early as 1 year of age, before the dogs are used for breeding.

X-linked Tremor, Congenital Tremor
Congenital problems associated with tremoring include hypomyelination, dysmyelination, and lysosomal storage disease. Problems in myelination occur in several dog breeds with the Springer spaniel, Chow Chow, and Weimaraner being the most common.

X-linked Tremor, Congenital Tremor
Congenital problems associated with tremoring include hypomyelination, dysmyelination, and lysosomal storage disease. Problems in myelination occur in several dog breeds with the Springer spaniel, Chow Chow, and Weimaraner being the most common.

High Uric Acid Excretion
High uric acid excretion is a hereditary metabollic disorder seen in Dalmatian dog breed which results in formation or uric acid stones. This can be a life-threatening condition.

Idiopathic Hepatic Fibrosis in Dogs
Hepatic fibrosis (liver fibrosis) is a wound healing response characterised by the excessive accumulation of scar tissue in the liver. Congenital form has been documented both in humans and dogs.

Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, E.coli Food Poisoning
Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome is a rare, life-threatening kidney disorder marked by kidney failure, hemolytic anemia and platelet destruction.

Ichthyosis in Dogs
Ichthyosis is a group of skin disorders characterized by dryness, roughness, and scaliness. Most are genetic, but some are acquired, developing in association with other systemic disease or genetic syndrome.

L-2-Hydroxyglutaric Acidemia
L-2-Hydroxyglutaric aciduria (L-2-HGA) is a rare inherited neurometabolic disorder characterized by progressive deterioration of central nervous system function which may result in neurologic diseases such as epilepsy.

Malignant Hyperthermia: A Fatal Condition in Genetically Predisposed Dogs
If your dog is a Greyhound or other breed with particularly low body fat, be conscious of the potential of malignant hyperthermia which should be treated immediately as this condition is often fatal.

Expansion of the Esophagus, Megaesophagus
Does your dog regurgitate his food often? Megaesophagus is the most common cause of regurgitation in dogs. A dog with megaesophagus requires special care that may include small feeding of high-calorie food of a slurry-like consistency and feeding from an elevated bowl to allow gravity to assist in swallowing.

Lipidosis, Fatty Liver and Other Syndromes
Lipidosis is a condition characterized by abnormal fat (lipid) deposition in cells due to disturbance in lipid metabolism, such as hereditary diseases or cancers. Several hereditary and acquired conditions are seen in both dogs and cats.

X-linked Nephritis, Kidney Disease
Kidney failure, although generally thought to be a condition associated with old age, can be seen at any age and is not uncommon in dogs under five years old. Juvenile kideny diseases (nephropathies) have been reported in many breeds of dogs; however, there are few instances where a genetic basis has been conclusively demonstrated.

Necrotising Myelopathy In Dogs
Necrotising myelopathy is an inflammatory disease of the spinal cord caused by infections and some autoimmune diseases. Clinical signs begin at three to 12 months old and usually includes progressive partial paralysis of the hindlimbs due to death of nervous tissue of the spinal cord.

Mitochondrial Myopathy
Mitochondrial myopathies are a group a muscle diseases associated with abnormal energy-producing systems in many organs, most often skeletal muscles. Dogs affected with mitochondrial myopathies have severe exercise intolerance that can be consistently demonstrated with even mild exercise. They have stiff, stilted gait, in the pelvic limbs, reluctance to move, and spontaneous pain.

Diseases Transmissible Between Dogs and People
Examples of diseases that can be transmitted from dogs and cats to humans are rabies, roundworms, ringworm, and toxoplasmosis. It is always wise to minimize contact between wild animals and your dog or cat. Whenever possible, get your pet vaccinated against a zoonotic disease.

Can Dietary Supplements Help Repletion Of Glycogen?
According to recent studies, if the horse consumes the feed provided, neither extra carbohydrate nor extra fat will enhance the repletion of muscle glycogen stores. Dietary supplements may actually inhibit repletion. Maintaining horses in a good state of hydration seems to have a moderate positive effect on repletion of muscle glycogen stores.

Safety of Garlic, Lutein and Evening Primrose Oil Dietary Supplements
The three popular dietary supplements, lutein, evening primrose oil, and garlic, added to the diets of horses, dogs, and cats have recently become the focus of attention of regulatory agencies with regard of their safety. Recent studies show that they may cause significant adverse health effects.

Ragwort Poisoning (Pyrrolizidine Alkaloidosis) in Horses
Ragwort poisoning or pyrrolizidine alkaloidosis is a longterm poisoning that results in liver failure. It is caused by many toxic plants including ragwort, woolly groundsel, rattleweed, and seeds of yellow tarweed.

Laminitis (Founder) Causes and Treatment
Laminitis is a common debilitating disease in horses that involves painful disruption of the tissues within the hoof. This condition is often difficult to treat with conventional anti-inflammatory drugs and results in pain, which in severe cases requires euthanasia.

Diseases Transmissible Between Horses and People
Numerous zoonotic diseases are passed from wild animals to people, or from wild animals to pets to people. A number of zoonoses are transmitted from horses to humans. Whenever a zoonosis is suspected, contact your veterinarian; remember hat it is easier to use precautionary methods and prevent disease than fight it.
