"Of diagnosing your dog or cat with a fever, and how we actually work it up and how we treat it in the ER vet Dr Hackney, gar what other important information. Do you wanna leave with our cat and dog owners when it comes to fever in the ER? I think one of the most important things that I wanted this Gus his treatment of the fever patient because it does differ significantly from a fever that you, and I may have if you and I have a fever. We may take a Tylenol or an IB profit and Advil or some other type of medication help drive our fever down. Whereas in pets for a variety of reasons that is really a poor choice support treatment one of the things. I talk about is that unfortunately, for us in some ways pets are exquisitely sensitive to some of the medications that you and I may take for cats even a fracture. Of a dose of Tylenol acetaminophen, maybe deadly to them non-storage Atlanta inflammatories, for example in Advil or an ibuprofen can also cause severe illness kidney failure or liver failure. So for our cat and dog or small animal. Patients treatment really depends on what is causing the disease itself. What is causing the fever itself? My hope is with the good examination and a normal number of tests that we perform weaken get to the underlying cause and decide what the best course of treatment is in maybe an antibiotic it may be an opioid, or it may be another pain medication or other type of medication for that pet, but we don't just prescribe anti inflammatories like acetaminophen or ibuprofen nonce, Royal anti-inflammatories to treat them the other common question that we face and really dilemma that. We face is what happens when we can't get to a diagnose. Versus plain and simple. We can't test for all viruses. We mentioned a couple of viruses earlier, especially in cats are feline leukemia virus, EFI LV or feline immunodeficiency virus FIV, but there are other viruses, certainly, which exist, and we can't exhaustively test for everything out there. So what do we do when no diagnosis is made? When we've run the routine number of tests or the number of tests, which are available to us. And we just don't know what the causes we do then consider often therapeutic trial of medications, but we do this with a careful consideration of the risks and benefits, for example. We may not always wanna use an antibiotic. We may not always want to use a steroid. So what would I consider? Well, you know, it depends number one. I'm gonna treat that patient on the inpatient or outpatient basis if a fever that is high enough to cause Malays lethargy loss of appetite. Dehydration. Maybe that does. Require hospitalization and supportive care. If the temperature is greater than one hundred five or one hundred six degrees Fahrenheit that can cause other abnormalities electrolyte disturbances, Oregon damage clotting system damage and even death in. So again, those are patients which I may want to treat on the inpatient basis. Meaning we admit them to the hospital. We put a catheter in we start giving them intravenous fluids to help hydrate them to help bring down that temperature in other causes a fever. We again may put them on antibiotics, so if they have a risk for infection antibiotics would be a reasonable choice, but it does depend on what type of infection, and we're worried about a urinary. Tract infection is going to be treated a little bit differently than pneumonia, which may be treated a little bit differently than other tick borne diseases, for example, lime disease or -lica- or Anna plasma so antibiotics will depend on. On the veterinarian and your clinical suspicion about what may be causing it because we don't want to just give every medication out there. There are a number one side effects number two interactions and number three antibiotics are not without risks. They can cause disease they can cause loss of appetite. They can cause vomiting. So it's very important that we just don't prescribe medications because and that may be something that we have to discuss with the client. Why are we are? Why are we not prescribing medication XYZ and again white is important to not just go into your medicine cabinet and give your pet? Give your dog your cat. What you would take for fever, even if it is a fraction of the dose because you way, more than they do for example. So that can cause significant Z's con cause significant illness has the toxicologists in may will often attest to we see a lot of accidental poisonings when pet owners are trying to do good. And they give you know, a small. Pill like an Aleve or Tylenol or an Advil employees. Never give any human medications without talking to your veterinarian or the ASPCA animal poison control center because it can be really poisonous. So really important. Don't give any medication don't use any of your old cats expired medications without consulting of that. It is really important that we diagnose it and treat it right away. Dr Patrick are any last thoughts to leave us with when it comes to fever? The one thing I'll leave you with is the concept of what's called fever of unknown origin, and a fever of unknown origin. As it sounds as a fever that we see that we cannot determine the underlying cause of in people at typically has a little bit of a different connotation, for example in people. They talk about a disease that lasts several weeks with a high temperature often we want to get to the bottom of things a little bit quicker faster and for quality of life in our pets empirically, meaning we prescribe medications sooner for them because we don't wanna see them sick. As long because we don't have the same number of tests and or health insurance for many of them. So we want to make sure we don't get into the fever of unknown origin. But I would encourage you not to get frustrated in the process because there are so many different causes of fever bacterial. Viral recap zeal, fungal protozoan parasitic immune mediated inflammatory cancerous. And they're even our miscellaneous causes for example, drug reactions certain breeds such as the sharpei certain toxins, recognizing there are so many causes for fever recognized that your veterinarian while they wanna get down to the bottom of this will do so in a systematic approach working with you to do that. And when the point comes that treatment is needed. I guarantee they will prescribe what they feel is in the best interest for your pet and is so important again. This is a really common problem that we see dogs and cats coming into the emergency room for your right? If your dog, your cat feels really warm to the touch, I always. Recommend getting sure veterinarian or your emergency veterinarian. And that's because we want to check.

"Thank you sponsors and carrying on here. So I was just looking at this. This is a story, but this is stapled onto a different story because this one says owed by Jenna Maury, and is just a page of something that's different than the rest of what it stapled to because this says personal experience. Yeah. But this is a different. This is just one page story. So I'll read this one it's called personal experience which was written in nineteen ninety eight. How old was I in nineteen. Thank you. Julie. I can't I don't know. If this is like, this is missing a page or it sounds like she's gave you incomplete. Yeah. Well, it's like put together. All right. This is it has no title. It just says personal experience. I miss him a lot I moaned in a high whiny voice. There's nothing we can do sweetie. He's gone. My dad was trying to get me to feel better about our cat running away. He had feline leukemia a highly dangerous cat disease. But I didn't know about his sickness. I was only four for the record. This is the truth Torey. I think sounds like it because our first cat Kato was a cat that came to our lake house men. We started feeding it because we liked it. Big mistake. No. He's our cat. He's just showed up one day. So well, he always sort of been like a street cat, but he loved us. But he did I think of runway because he was sick..

Symptoms of Vaccine Side Effects in Dogs

"Is no. Extremely great vaccine. It works very very well. And we've been able to document the literature that this immunity waikele lasts for a long period of time. Whereas for Kalisa virus and herpes virus, the immunity just doesn't last as long, and it's a combination of things that's different target that we're going after a different type of virus. It's more challenging to get that immunity to stay up there. So sometimes when we're seeing in having a conversation with our veternarian, there may be different recommendations for different types of vaccines. So in other words, the veterinary may recommend getting one type of Accion every several years and other type of axion more frequently depending on that cats risk. So another example of how it's important to have a communication with your veterinarian because vaccination is not a one size fits all opportunity. I don't think. Absolutely. And and I would also say if you have concerns you have reservations, I needs to be an open dialogue. So you really need to talk to your vet. And certainly let them appreciate what your worries might be. They may not be founded or they may be founded. And so the only way to really explore that and come up with a solution that you're going to feel comfortable with and that you're gonna feel is gonna give your animal. The best protection that you feel appropriate is to really have a very very open discussion about these risks benefits. Do you have any statistics at hand or in your mind about how frequently these diseases that we vaccinate four appear in our our populations have cats. Well, there are some good data that are actually beginning to come out. And so it's really challenging to oftentimes figure out how frequently they occur because for instance, they're not generally reportable. Right. So we don't know as veterinaries how often they occur unless there are specific studies that look into them. And so it depends a lot on the cat population. So so for some of these types of diseases, it's not unusual for five percent or even higher of cats that are out in an area can. Actually, be infected with these with these types of irises. And so there's a group that is called taxi, and it see a PC, and you can go to that website. And they actually are starting to track feline leukemia and FIV virus status based on certain types of tests. And so that can be a way for those types of diseases to get a better feel for kind of what's happening. But I think the biggest important message here is although some of these viruses may not be incredibly common in our pet population. We certainly when we see them we definitely see them on these unvaccinated animals and the results of these diseases are far more devastating than any possible negative component of the vaccination in my opinion. And I think that you would agree with me. Absolutely. I remember when I was working in clinical medicine saw kitten that had been born Ren shortly after birth had been exposed to pan leucopenia. And so it causes an error, basically it attacks the Serb in the brain. And so this cat could not walk. Properly. It would fall over these are horrible horrible circumstances and situations that happen, and I'm sure every veterinarian has got their stories of what they've seen. So you know, it's really about. How can we do the best for the best number of animals? That's kind of heartbreaking if you think about a twenty five dollar vaccine could have completely changed the outcome for that cat. And I think that happens every day. So I am very very happy that you're with me today to talk about these things because I feel like people trust remorse and internet headlines in making decisions and really the best answer is communication with their veterinarian. Wouldn't you agree? Absolutely. I mean, I think, you know, Dr Google has a place, but we have to be a little bit cautious. Anybody can put information on the internet, and so going to reputable websites if you have questions bringing them up with your veterinarian, I think these are all really important ways of making sure that information, you get is valid and defendable. I have a t shirt that. It says I'm smarter than Dr Google. I love it. It's my favorite t shirt, but it's it's a little bit tongue in cheek. But use the information that you find on the internet to start a conversation and ask do not hesitate to reach out to your veterinarian or retail to

"To the doggie divas show. And we are here this morning with award-winning veterinarian from Venice, Florida, Dr Michael Reinhardt. Welcome Dr Reinhard. Good morning. How are you? Good. Thanks. Hey, you know, one of the things that people have asked me about. And I wanted to talk to you about it is f I p, and it's something that, you know, we talk a lot about dogs, but we have our feline friends out there that our listeners to so can you give us a little information on things were kind of changing with F IP? It's a it's a it's a virus. That's caused a lot of problems that it back in the sixties F I P or feline infectious. Paranoia has kind of went hand in hand with feline leukemia again a vaccine for feline leukemia. Feline leukemia is not gone, but it's it's kind of taken a back seat. It's still there and probably the number one infectious disease killer of cats that are outside, but many people feel that F I P R feline infectious parent is the number one cause of death. Kittens? And there's been a lot of concerns about it. And one of the concerns is it's difficult to diagnose because this comes from virus called a corona virus. And the problem with the corona virus is simple kitten diarrhea a lot of times is caused by corona virus? So you run a blood test for corona virus, and this that you'd think have it, and it comes back with false positives and false negatives. And it doesn't know the difference between the corona virus, which is the kitten diarrhea in the corona Vars, which is by p. So it makes a lot of difficulty for those of us to diagnose it, and it kinda comes in two forms that comes in the wet form which is fluids in the in the chest abdomen and also comes in the dry form the fluids in the chest and the Ataman times should pull the fluids off. And you have man lies, and you pretty much get your answer the dry form scar tissue throughout the body. And basically, it causes general organ failure. And it's very difficult to diagnose. But lately there's been a lot of. Of things happening. And the Morris foundation began a one point two million dollar research fund and with that research fund. There's been a lot of stuff done and doctor Niels Petersen from the university of California Davis has been doing a lot of studies on antiviral drugs. And there's two antiviral drugs that I was reading that really hasn't been interesting. They had one study would antiviral drug called GC three seven six, and they had twenty Kastner study, which is a pretty small study and this casts had naturally occurring. F I P and with the g c three seven six all those cats return to normal health, however, fourteen relapsed and died, but six of those cats went at a total remission, then they had another study with thirty cats with a drug called E V O nine eight four and in those thirty cash four cats died of related and unrelated problems, not necessarily f I p. But twenty six of those cats one of the complete remission. So there is some consideration. And Dr Peterson feels that if I p specific antiviral drugs is going to become the main choice for F IP in future. However, these drugs are investigational situation. And who knows when it's going to become available to the average practitioner. So yeah, it's out there times there are changing but times change slowly. So, but maybe we have some treatments for this disease, which is fatal. The question is can we get a better way to diagnose it? We did at one time have a vaccine for it. But that back seen kinda failed efficacy, and I don't be it's even available anymore. So we don't have a vaccine for this liquid do feline leukemia. But you know, we keep changing keep studying see if we can make them changes with this. So for people who especially the kittens that get this. So there is some optimism zuri. There is something that potentially could be happening. That would have a better prognosis like all over better prognosis for kittens as. Opposed to the possibility of losing them. Correct. Well, there are antiviral drugs. But we're talking, you know, this is way in the future. But they're they're doing studies. You know, they have these two drugs. I'm sure they're going to get more. I mean, you know, there's a lot of risk factors for this early weaning stress. The time exposure such as surgery and vaccines overcrowding and because overcrowding as a risk factor. Shelters and foster homes are high risk for this for kittens. So you know, right now, though jumping up and down about being a kitten problem. I do see in an older cats. You get an older cat coming into camp. Retake xrays got called plural of fusion, which is fluids around the the lungs and lungs were collapsing. Nine times out of ten. That's probably if I p if what are the symptoms. I know that you're we talked about the lungs is there any other symptoms that the listener should be looking for if they have a cat that, you know, they're thinking, oh, maybe this isn't so serious. But actually, the symptom is serious. They should have it looked at by the Narian one of the most universal symptoms for just about anything as anorexia or not eating. I don't eat the lung one. Obviously, the cast breathe really hard really struggling. You could see that having problems the abdomen. One adamant fluid. You know, animals nutty and all of a sudden, you realize he's getting around on around on rounder and his got fluid in his belly, the dry form is just everything kidney failure, you get everything is just general organ failure. And that's just about anything. But you know, the problem is really, you know, I'm gonna loss to say. Okay, here we're going to run this blood tests to get an answer. I don't run that blood test quite frequently because. Basically, I get the fluid forum, and we kind of figured out from there. And I I will run that blood test. If I have other cats in the household that I'm concerned about mayor have been exposed know. How contagious is it? It's contagious. But there was a study where they had like two hundred cats in a in a cattery, and they had a cat in there that had. And they were able to show that only five catch those two hundred cats got epi. However, it takes a while for that FIPS show up. So those other cats may have had f I p, but they're what we call a symptomatic. You know, the the clock is ticking in the fuse is burning. But this not there, but only five of the two hundred came down with F B. Well, it sounds as though it's something that should be looked at a lot of people are asking about different things about this F. I IP they've asked about some of the cat diseases as being one of them and given us a lot of good information on it. A lot of good information for what we're dealing with and the president. And a lot of information what could be happening impacting us in the future. So I thank you very much the times they are changing. Thanks will be back in just a moment.

Oh, nine eight four and in those thirty casts four cats died of related and unrelated problems, not necessarily F IP, but twenty six of those cats one of the complete remission. So there is some consideration. And Dr Peterson feels that if I p. Specific antiviral drugs is going to become the main choice for F IP in the future. However, these drugs are investigational situation. And who knows when it's going to become available to the average practitioner. So yeah, it's out there times there are changing but times change slowly. So, but maybe we have some treatments for this disease, which is fatal. The question is can we get a better way to diagnose it? We did at one time have a vaccine for it. But that vaccine kinda failed efficacy, and I don't be it's even available anymore. So we don't have a vaccine for this liquid do feline leukemia. But you know, we keep changing keep studying see if we can make them changes with this. So for people who especially the kittens that get this. So there is some optimism. There is something that potentially could be happening. That would have a better prognosis like all over better prognosis for kittens as opposed to the possibility of losing them. Correct. Well, there are antiviral drugs. But we're talking. You know, this is way in the future. But they're they're doing these studies. They have these two drugs. I'm sure they're going to get more. I mean, you know, there's a lot of risk factors for this..

"We are here this morning with award-winning, veterinarian. From, Venice. Florida Dr. Michael. Reinhardt welcome Dr. Reinhard good morning? How are you Very good thanks hey, you know one of the things, that people have asked me about and I wanted to talk to. You about it is f I p and it's something? That you know we talk a lot about dogs but, we have, our feline friends out there that our listeners to so can you give us a little information on that things are kind of changing with f. IP it's a it's a. It's a virus that's caused a lot. Of problems that it back in, the sixties f. i. or feline infectious parent has. Kind of went hand in hand with feline leukemia them got a vaccine for feline leukemia. So feline leukemia is not gone but it's it's kind of. Taken a back seat it's still there and probably the, number one infectious disease killer of cats that are. Outside but many people feel that f. i. p. r. feline infectious peritonitis is the number one cause of death and kittens and there's been a lot of concerns about it and one of. The concerns is it's difficult to diagnose because this comes from, a. Virus, called. A corona. Virus. And the problem. With the Karuk Navarre's. Is simple. Kitten, diarrhea, a lot, of times is caused by a corona virus so you run a blood test for corona virus and these cats that you think have it and it comes back, with false positives and false negatives, and it doesn't know the difference between the corona virus which is. The kitten diarrhea and the corona virus which is by? So it makes a lot of difficulty for those of, us to, diagnose it didn't it it kinda comes in two forms that comes in the wet form which is fluids in the in the chest an Ataman and also comes in the. Dry form the fluids in the chest. And the Ataman LA Times you, pull the fluids off and you have man lies. And you pretty much get your answer the dry form scar tissue throughout the body and. Basically it it causes general organ failure and it's very difficult. To diagnose but lately there's been a lot of things, happening and the Morris foundation began a one point. Two million dollar research fund and with that research fund there's been a lot of stuff done and doctor Niels Peterson from the university of Cal Poignant Davis has been doing a lot of, studies on antiviral drugs and there's two antiviral drugs that I was. Reading that really hasn't been interesting they had one study of an antiviral drug, called g.? C. three seven six and they had twenty Kastner study which is, a pretty small study and this casts had, naturally occurring, f. i. p. and with the g c three seven six all those cats return. To normal health however fourteen relapsed and died but six of those cats went into total remission then they, had another study with thirty cats with a, drug called e., v. o. nine eight four, and in those thirty casts four. Cats died of related and unrelated problems not necessarily f. IP but twenty six of those cats, one of the complete remission. So there is some consideration, and Dr Peterson feels that FIPS specific antiviral drugs is going to become the main choice For f. IP p. future. However. These, drugs are an investigational, situation and who, knows when, it's going to become available to, the average practitioner so yeah it's out there times there are changing but, times change slowly so but maybe we have some. Treatments for this disease which. Is fatal the question is can we get a better way to, diagnose, it we did at one time have a vaccine for it but that. Back seen kinda failed efficacy and I don't be it's even available anymore so we, don't, have. A vaccine for this Lakewood do feline, leukemia, but you know we. Keep changing keep studying see if we can make. Them changes with this so for people who especially the kittens that get this so there is some. Optimism rant there is, something that potentially could be happening that would have. A better prognosis like all over better prognosis for kittens, as opposed to the possibility. Of losing them correct well there are antiviral drugs but we're talking you know this is way in the future but They're they're doing these studies you know they had these two. Drugs I'm, sure they're going to get. More, I mean you know there's a lot of risk factors for this it's. Early, weaning stress the time exposure such as surgery and vaccines overcrowding and because overcrowding there's a risk factor shelters. And foster, homes are high risk for this for kittens so you know right, now though jumping up and down about it being a kitten problem. I do see, it an older cats you get an older cat? Coming into camp retake and x rays got called plural, fusion which is fluids, around the the lungs and lungs were collapsing nine times out. Of ten that's probably if I p what. Are the symptoms I, know that we, talked about the. Lungs is, there any other symptoms that the listener should be. Looking for if they have the cat that you know. They're thinking oh maybe this isn't. So serious but actually the symptom is serious they should have it looked at by the Narian one of the most universal symptoms for just about anything anorexia or. Not. Eating, I mean don't eat, the lung one, obviously the, cats breathe a really hard really, strong You can see. That having, problems the abdomen one adamant, fluid you know animals not and all. Of a, sudden you, realize he's getting around and round on rounder. And he's got, fluid in his belly the dry forum is just, everything, you get kidney, failure you get everything, is just general organ failure and that's just about anything but. You know the problem is really, you know I'm gonna loss to say okay here we're. Going to run this blood test to. Get an answer I don't run that blood test quite frequently because you know basically I, get the fluid forum and we kind of figured out from there and I I will. Run that blood test if, I have other cats? In the household that I'm concerned about may. Have not been exposed now how contagious is it it's contagious but? There was a study where they had like two hundred, cats, in a in a category, and they had a cat in. There that had f. IP and they were able to show that only five catch those two hundred cats got FAP however it. Takes a, while for that f. IP. To, show up so those other cats may have Had FIPS but they're what we call a. Symptomatic you, know, th the, the clock is ticking in the fuse is burning but this not there but only five of the two hundred came down with. F. b. all it sounds as. Though it's something that. Should be looked at a lot of people. Are asking about different things. About this f., IP they've asked about, some of, the cat diseases as being, one, of them and you've given us a lot of good information on. It a lot of information for what we're dealing with the, president and a lotta information what could be happening impacting us in the future so I, thank you very much the times.

"And even my friends that are, veterinarians wanted me to ask your opinion on this about the. Safety of vaccines, for cats yeah so the reason that just so we're all on the same page that we're asking this. Is gosh I can't remember when we first started noticing what was originally called vaccine associated sarcomas rights is that where we're going with. This you think with this question yeah I want to kind of start, there yes yeah so we noticed and the most. Common vaccines are cats typically get our rabies and. Feline leukemia so that's where they I with vaccines we first started to nudist it's association of tumors connective tissue tumors, called sarcomas and they're, pretty locally aggressive tumor so they're very invasive again going back. To, the see something do. Something. Principle if you find that Lumper bump that's on your cat. You know we, need to remove them early because he's, tumors Have like. I always think of like roots of a tree projection growing from the primary mass to really have to do quite a big. Cat surgery to remove these tumors what we've learned over the years and they've, been really reclassified as injection site sarcomas is that in some cats I had an overzealous going back to inflammation inflammatory response. To. Any injection so you can see it from a steroid injection you could see it, potentially in some, cats from an antibiotic injection there was that flea medication on the market a bunch of. Years ago maybe seven years ago for, cats the idea was that? You, were only giving it once every six. Months. In. Some cats got it got this sarcoma from that as well so it seem the incidence is..

"Reported to be one in ten thousand. So not very common until it's your own cat than it seems like at, the instance is one hundred percent. Some studies show a. Little, bit higher up to one in. One thousand so. Not every kitty is getting it so I think it, important question, that we should ask as pet owners when you're With your. Cat and your veterinarian is what vaccines do I really need for my cat how often. Where my. Cat's body am I giving them we. Know not right not to be giving them in between the shoulder blade. That was very common twenty years ago but then they would get these tumors and it would be really hard. To find them and remove them successfully so now the recommendation is on, the legs right and does your cat. Need every vaccine that often is really the question are they an indoor outdoor cat You. Know if they're going outdoors. They are more at risk for feline leukemia virus from fighting with, other kitties but if they're indoor only cat maybe they don't need that vaccine so. I think the, discussion really should be where are we giving the, vaccines how often are we giving them and are we thinking about each kitty as, an individual and. Not just little checklist of vaccines that they should be getting I think that it is the relationship with the veterinarian and this. Is. What I tell, my clients communicate with your veterinarian tell them what you need tell them what your concerns are and. If you have that relationship I. Know I choose really carefully what each my patients get? Based on their needs. And so I I do the research on everything I'm giving them and I really care about, them because I because I know them and they're my they're my patients so I think that that is important. A relationship and not just a kind of. A. Drive by vaccination clinic kind of thing? Exactly and you know we're still. Learning a lot about these tumor And there's a lot of research I. Went to a good talk at, one of the conferences in Denver last year and we're still really understanding I. Mean one of the early things, that we knew about the rabies. Vaccine it wasn't the vaccine it self it, was something within that kind of? Kept the vaccine sterile and and? We thought safe the aluminum advent and so they've reformulated the vaccines for sure and you know so now we're not using? This non Atrovent vaccine that doesn't have the aluminum in it but we still see some of these tumors even without the. Aluminum so that wasn't like..

"That number we don't know how many dogs cats are in, the population, so to really report that well we would need a census like they do a, people, the other thing is we would. Need to be reporting cancer, on a regular basis and then tracking that over, time so you can go to the CDC website and see really, great statistics for lung cancer. And people colon cancer and the different cancers and then they break. It. Down. By different groups of people and things like that so in dogs and cats we don't have, that so we don't necessarily can't say well compared to ten years or twenty years ago we're seeing more cancer? I see a lot of cancer? But that's not a very scientific assessment of it but it. Does feel like we're possibly seeing more, we do know that? Some things have changed for example in cats with lymphoma we have decreased the Feline leukemia associated lymphoma but we're seeing more gastro intestinal lymph Obama and there's been. A lot of theories you know as some of the diets have changed to help. Prevent urinary diseases could that, contribute to it I'm. Not blaming diet exclusively but again, we've definitely have seen some trends in cancer in, cats but it's really. Hard I wish I could say, for sure I would love to say no it's, not true or say yes we have the evidence. It is true but we don't really have. Enough facts, to be able to, say what's going on Well I agree it does seem like we see more but there, are so many factors I, see a ton obviously. You see a talent but maybe I'm, just seeing more pets maybe I'm seeing. More pet owners. Who are. Aware, and seek my help I don't know but I think that's an excellent question and I think we're, also you know with media and, social media were more aware right and if. You're a conscientious pet owner you're probably reading. More about it and you're seeing more articles about, it and so I think that also adds, to the perception whether true or false, that there's, more cancer because you know if you're a pet owner you worry, about it you start reading..

"With your American college veterinary ophthalmology essentially a veterinary ophthalmologist is the veterinary equivalent of what your human position. Is we do all the same things the MD apologised do except we do. It on a larger variety of species we've pretty much go through the same training. After four years of, veterinary school you do. An intern ship and you apply, for ever accepted it to, a residency following your ophthalmology residency which. Is three years you take a series of. Examinations and if you pass examinations you become. A, board, certified fit. Here Politics so, I guess, you're a pretty good expert to talk to you today about, all things, hat, is so I want to take this opportunity to educate my listeners about. Some of the things that can happen to their cat is and and maybe how they might know when to. Seek help for those things so could you tell us a little bit about. About cat is and maybe how they differ from our own is a were any. Details people might want, to know about the, general I thing well differ from, the human is quite a, bit the knows noticeable things about Medicare Domestic cats have a vertical pupil whereas we have a circular pupil interestingly large cats all have circuit or pupils. As and that may be because of the. Way these cats, are designed to hot domestic cats tend to. Focus on small game and birds So having a people oriented verdict would give them an advantage orders most large cats are Sergei our planes hunt planes games and so a circular advantage The other thing about. Cats is they tend to have a reflected player in, the faculty that's called the And that enhance. A chance to see Jim why so most cats are are early morning late evening or at night hundreds and so having them gives them almost like having night vision glasses for people just. Gives them an extra advantage for them. To be able to, see gain some of the most common disease we see your societas with infectious disease things like feline herpes which causes respiratory disease gas can also affect And, those we'll see contract which is. Inflammation of a tissue that's rounds the waking terrified is which information of the cornea post office seen as superficial corneal ulcers and then there's a large variety of other sections diseases that can. Call insulation five things like taco place. Most is is to, plasma most is some of the viral diseases Feline leukemia feline. Infectious anemia things like that can cause diseases inside the is well course cats do get. Cataracts rarely compared to dogs and even more rarely compared humans probably the most common surgical disease we see in cats are corneal ulcers. Often we have to treat with surge As, such as doing a, grafting type procedure and an interesting. Thing is about the older cats is as we often suggests percentage of. The ophthalmologist even more than internists vision And many of these cats will end up having retinal detachments You too high blood pressure on the ophthalmologist often the turmeric diagnosis High blood pressure and jets and so those are just some of. The things we'll see cancer is from very early age older jets so my listeners might notice what clinical signs at home that might signify to them that the one of. These, issues is going on with their cats is a good question yeah mostly what you're going to see your this jar from. The redness around the eyes or change in color of the. Cornea the clear part, at the any change in clearness with India and then of course vision loss loss, can be a little bit difficult to. Determine Cavs because they're very did not showing something on fish off the biggest, thing is discharge from the is rubbing at the is changing color especially if the clear part of the eye or redness around the so do cats act?
