Cats may be born with Feline Leukemia or Feline Immunodeficiency, or can contract either of them at any time after birth, through means of intimate contact with infected cats (Felv) or bite wounds (FIV). Neither of these diseases can be cured, yet testing for them is recommended for all cats six weeks and older when they are first brought into a household.

Ethylene Glycol Toxicity in Pets Bucks County Veterinarian

Ethylene glycol is an odorless, colorless, sweet liquid that makes up nearly 95% of car antifreeze. This type of poisoning typically occurs when antifreeze drips from a car radiator or if it is spilled onto the ground when being transferred into the car engine. Your pet may then lick the spillage off of the floor or lick their paws off after running through the antifreeze puddle, ingesting the toxin into their bodies. There is a very small range of margin of toxicity when it comes to ethylene glycol ingestion, in other words, a small dosage of this organic compound can result in fatal toxicity.

There are two types of diabetesthat are found in dogs that are responsible for this glucose-insulin inhibition. One being insulin-deficiency (most common type of diabetes), this is where the dog’s body does not produce enough insulin. If your dog is suffering from this form of diabetes it means that the pancreas is either damaged or not functioning adequately. Management of this disease usually requires twice daily injections as a way to help replace the missing amount of insulin that a healthy dog’s body would normally produce.
