Most Particular Desease For Pets

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

Hi~!
Since I lost my very best friend, Taro, I try to learn more about deseases that could infect our lovely pets. So, among all of the desease, I found that only 5 deseases that usually attack pets and can causing death. Here they are (sorry I will not insert any picture, because those pictures could hurt me too...):


1. SCABIES

Most attacks dog, cat, and rabbits. This desease caused by a little bug called "tungau" which is very very small so we could not realize it. Even the saliva of the flea can still be hurt even if fleas are dead!! That is so scary!! Pet would feels very itchy and cannot stop scratching or bitting it and becomes ulcers everywhere. Symptoms: pet scratching itself all the time, hair loss of the pet, looks crusty skin on some parts of the body, on the surface of the skin look very smooth in groups such as fleas water fleas, if the dog is bathed and brushed with a toothbrush redness disappears, but reappears after a day which is a reddish color on the surface of the skin.



2. RABIES

Most of pets owners must have know this virus, that usually attacks dog. The disease is highly contagious and dangerous. Attacks the central nervous system, caused by the rabies virus Rhabdho types of viruses that can affect all warm-blooded animals and humans. Rabies is a disease that is very dangerous disease, greatly feared and dreaded, and disrupt the tranquility of human life, as if once the clinical symptoms of rabies occur it will usually end with death. :( Rabies Virus in addition there are in the central nervous system, also found in animal saliva of patients with rabies. Therefore, transmission of rabies disease in humans or other animals through bites. Course of the disease Rabies in dogs and cats were divided into 3 phases (phase).

Phase prodormal: Animals looking for a cool and aloof, but may become more aggressive and nerve, extend pupils and rigid posture (tense). This phase lasts for 1-3 days. After the phase of the phase excitations prodormal or can proceed directly to phase paralysis.
Phase Excitation: Animals become malignant and attack anyone around them and eat weird stuff. Furthermore the eye becomes cloudy and is always open and trembling, then go into paralysis phase.
Phase paralysis: Animal suffered paralysis in all parts of the body and ends with death.

For human, In humans it is important to note is the history of bites from animals such as dogs, cats and monkeys.
Followed by symptoms of loss of appetite, headache, insomnia, high fever, nausea / vomiting.
Dilated pupils, frivolous talk, always wanted to move and look in pain.
The existence of a burning sensation (pain) at the site of the bite and became nervous.
Intense fear of water, sensitive to loud noise, light and wind / air.
Saliva and tears out the excess.
Convulsions followed by paralysis and eventually death.

THIS IS SO SCARY AND DANGEROUS! Please take a good care of your pet and yourself, this virus has no mercy and could bring you to death in about just 5 days, worse than any cancers!!

*ramblings* i think that my Taro was dead because of rabies virus :( after learning this desease, the symptoms were just like whatever he felt. OMG I hate that wild dog that bite my Taro!



3. PARVO 

Parvo is a virus. Treatment success rate of infection depends on how long the infection has taken place. Treatment is generally performed veterinarian infusion, injection anti vomiting such as metoclopramide, dolasetron, ondasetron, and prochlorperazine, and injections of antibiotics such as cefoxitin, timentin, enrofloxacin and metronidazole.Modes of transmission of this disease by touch, and air.

4. LEPTOSPIROSIS

Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease that can infect humans and animals (dogs, cats, mice, cows, horses and pigs). Carriers of the disease is usually a bacteria found in rat urine.
Because humans can contract it keep cleaning the animals, where food, beverage, home and the things that could potentially be contaminated by the bacteria Leptospira.
Vaccination is one way to protect animals from infection of Leptospira. Currently available vaccines have not been able to protect animals from all strains of Leptospira. In cats Leptospira vaccines are not available due to infection in cats is rare.
Leptospira vaccines can protect your dog for 6-8 months. Dogs with high infection rates of vaccination can be done twice a year. Vaccination of dogs under 8 weeks should not use a vaccine containing Leptospira. Veterinarians often give the first vaccination at 12-16 weeks of age dogs. In because of Leptospira infection can be fatal it is advisable for those of you who have dogs to consult with your veterinarian.

Distemper attacks the animals in the family Canidae, Mustelidae, Mephitidae, Procyonidae and possibly Felidae. Viral agent that causes the disease known as canine distemper virus (CDV). The virus can be transmitted via aerosol (air), which is derived from the respiratory droplets or nasal secretions of patients with distemper animals. Canine distemper is a fatal disease that often affects the respiratory, gastrointestinal and central nervous system. This disease can affect dogs of all ages. However, the disease often affects dogs under 1 year old.

Please, if  you can not take a good care of your pets, at least don't let them feel this such of pains. It was really painful to watch your lovely pets fight against the desease and death is waiting in front of them, that was really hurt me. Please keep them safely, clean, warm, and full of love. 

I don't want you to regret it like me.


RIP my lovely dear Taro. I will always love you.
