Vetinary Information for cats and dogs

[ Fleas ] [ Sterilization ] [ Worming ] [ Pup Birth ]  [ Behaviour ] [ Training ]

Covers common problems and solutions as well as general Vetinary advice for dogs and cats.

Advice and Feedback:

  • Sterilization can prevent female dogs from getting Breast Cancer when they get older. From 6 years starts the danger period where cancer can set  in.
  • Male dogs are also subject to cancer, I imagine it is similar to females.
  • Heartworm is a must in infested areas. The test is simple but costly. 

FEEDBACK

Australian Vetinary Info For any one who has a doggie with hip or Knee joint problems there is now a new drug available from the Vet  (METACAM) .  It is an Oral given liquid. It is the only one I have tried that actually worked. His last treatment was in July 99 and he still walks pretty good and can jump into the 4WD without any help. (Its not cheap though).

Pet Advice Australia If any of your pets have a ongoing skin problem then try Selsun shampoo. It works on humans and also works on pets. The vet used to have it but as the cost got too high they do not any longer. You can get it at your local supermarket. Selsun Blue is the same. (GRAHAM au)

Puppy whelping Should you notice your dog especially pups suddenly go off their food and vomit after eating then it is most likely that they have a TWISTED BOWL. Take them to the vet and ask them to be checked for this. Surgery will be needed to correct this condition. If left they will die. (TONY uk)

Giving Birth I was having a flea problem. Using new waterproof flea collars did not solve the problem. I tried the Frontline and the problem was solved. Thanks to the Vet who told me. (DEREK au)

HEADLINES

Animal Liberation (NA) was informed by members of the public that the Collie Shire (200km Perth) was gassing its pound dogs and cats with car exhaust. Within 24 hours a team coľordinated by Animal Liberation WA President Michael Zampogna and Vice-President Jenny Caleno was sent to investigate. What they found was worse than they expected. Puppies (5) housed with kittens. No appropriate food Rancid water. No shelter from heat or cold. And a gas chamber the size of a large oven the inside floor of which was littered with faeces and the walls scratched from panicking animals as they were slowly gassed in this rusty, leaking steel box. The gas chamber was in such a poor state that the operator. was exposed to car fumes as well. Videos and stills were taken.

Worse still was the discovery by Animal Liberation WA that an RSPCA appointed Special Constable was the person who had been gassing animals this way for over 10 years and that he has claimed the RSPCA had known about the gassing since at least March 1998

When I queried the RSPCA about taking action against the council I was told to leave it alone. They were not interested.

Effects of Car exhaust Gas  First the victim becomes paralyzed and unable to move, then they experience ultra pain and the only thing they can think of is to open the door to get out, but they cannot move, they are paralyzed. The death is extremely painful.
