Cytauxzoonosis AKA "Bobcat Fever"

 

For many years we have struggled for a way to prevent our beloved cats from contracting this horrible disease, and the best option was and still is to keep your pet indoors.  There have been times however where even this failed.  The topical treatments that were avaliable for cats would not kill the tick before it could transmit the disease.   HOWEVER.......

 

We now have 2 products avaliable that claim to kill the tick before it can trasmit Cytauxzoonosis to the cat.  The first is a topical called Frontline Tritak, you apply each 30 days.  The second is a Flea and Tick collar that is good for 8 months called Seresto.  Come by the clinic today to pick up either product to protect our feline friends!

Cats like to find warm places during the cold months, use caution when starting your recently driven vehicles since cats can climb up near the motor for the warmth.

 

 

 

 

plants

If you suspect your pet has ingested any of the plants below, call your veterinarian immediately.  Do not wait to see if symptoms appear, because in some cases of poisoning, by the time symptoms appear it is too late to save the animal. 

  1. Lilies (Lilium, all spp.): Ingesting any part of the plant can cause complete kidney failure in 36-72 hours. First symptoms appear in a few hours and may include appetite suppression, lethargy, vomiting.  Cats are especially sensitive to lily poisoning, so be very careful to keep your cats away from liliies of any kind, including the Amaryllis, Easter lilies, and Stargazer lilies so often found in homes around the holidays.
  2. Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis): Ingesting any part of the plant can cause cardiac dysrhythmias, vomiting, diarrhea, confusion, weakness, and even death.
  3. Anemone (Anenome and Pulsatilla, family Ranunculaceae): Irritating to the mucus membranes, and can cause blisters, hemorrhagic gastritis, shock, convulsions, and death.
  4. Aloe Vera (family Liliaceae): Vomiting, depression, diarrhea, anorexia, tremors, change in urine color.
  5. Amaryllis (family Amaryllidaceaea, incl. Hippeastrum spp.) All species, including Belladonna Lily, are toxic, and especially dangerous to cats. The bulbs are the toxic part of the plant.  The "Amaryllis" commonly seen during the December holidays are Hippeastrum species.  Symptoms include vomiting, depression, diarrhea, abdominal pain, hyper-salivation, anorexia, tremors. 
  6. Asparagus Fern (family Liliaceae): Allergic dermatitis, gastric upset, vomiting, diarrhea.
  7. Daffodil (Narcissus): Vomiting, diarrhea. Large ingestions cause convulsions, low blood pressure, tremors, cardiac arrhythmias.
  8. Philodendrons: Irritation, intense burning and irritation of the mouth, lips, tongue, excessive drooling, vomiting, difficulty swallowing.
  9. Jade Plants (Crassula argentea): Vomiting, depressions, ataxia, slow heart rate.
  10. Chrysanthemums: Vomiting, diarrhea, hyper salivation, incoordination, dermatitis.
  11. Cyclamen (Cyclamen persicum): The tubers or rhizomes contain the toxic glycoside cyclanin, a terpenoid saponin.  Ingestion can cause excess salivation, vomiting, diarrhea, heart rhythm abnormalities, seizures, or even death in rare cases.
  12. Cycads (including Sago palm; cardboard palm; etc.): The "Sago palm" is a cycad, not a true palm, and all parts of the plant are poisonous. Symptoms include vomiting, lethargy, melena (black "tarry" feces), icterus (jaundice), increased thirst, hemorrhagic gastritis, bruising, coagulopathy, liver failure, and death
  13. Poinsettia Plant The sap of Poinsettias is considered to be mildly toxic/irritating, and may cause nausea or vomiting if ingested

***ATTENTION NEW PET OWNERS:***

If you get a new pet we recommend getting them checked by a Veterinarian, within a few days of aquiring them.  During this visit we can access the pets vaccination history, and determine when he/she is due for their next vaccinatons.

Puppies should get vaccines at 6 to 8 weeks of age and then each 3 to 4 weeks until 16 to 18 weeks of age for a series of 3 to 4 vaccinations.

Kittens should get vaccines at 6 to 8 weeks of age and then boostered 3 to 4 weeks later. 

Also if you get an adult animal and you are unsure of its vaccination history we recommend getting it vaccinated.
