Canine Distemper: An infectious viral disease occurring in dogs, characterized by loss of appetite, a catarrhal discharge from the eyes and nose, vomiting, fever, lethargy, partial paralysis caused by destruction of myelinated nerve tissue, and sometimes death.

Hepatitis: A highly contagious viral disease affecting the liver and other organs. It is spread only among domestic dogs and wild dogs and is not related to human hepatitis. Symptoms range widely, from mild to severe, and include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, jaundice, light-colored stool, and stomach enlargement.

Leptospirosis: Dogs become infected by leptospires when abraded skin comes into contact with the urine of an infected host. The organisms quickly spread through the bloodstream leading to fever, joint pain, and general malaise which can last up to a week. The organism settles in the kidneys and begins to reproduce, leading to further inflammation and then kidney failure. Depending on the type of leptospire involved, other organ failure (especially liver) can be expected as well. Leptospirosis is a life-threatening disease.

Parvovirus: Characterized by severe, bloody diarrhea and vomiting, high fever and lethargy. The diarrhea is particularly foul smelling and is sometimes yellow in color. Parvo can also attack a dog's heart causing congestive heart failure. This complication can occur months or years after an apparent recovery from the intestinal form of the disease. Puppies who survive parvo infection usually remain somewhat unhealthy and weak for life.

Parainfluenza: Can be caused by many bacterial or viral agents. It is highly contagious and can cause mild to severe inflammation of the trachea, bronchi, and the lungs. It is characterized by a non-productive cough, occasionally productive. It is usually considered to be self-limiting unless pneumonia develops from a secondary bacterial infection.

Corona: Causes infectious peritonitis and a mild intestinal disease.

Canine Bordetella: One of the causes of the canine upper respiratory disease, tracheobronchitis or "kennel cough." It is a bacterial infection of the respiratory system of dogs characterized by severe coughing and gagging. It is a very contagious airborne disease. Most cases appear after contact with other dogs in kennels, grooming parlors and other places where dogs congregate.

Rabies: An acute, infectious, often fatal viral disease of most warm-blooded animals, especially wolves, cats, and dogs, that attacks the central nervous system and is transmitted by the bite of infected animals.

Panleukopenia: An infectious viral disease occurring in cats characterized by fever, vomiting, diarrhea leading to dehydration, and sometimes death.

Rhinotracheitis: An infectious respiratory disease of cats characterized by fever, conjunctivitis, nasal and ocular discharges and sneezing. It is due to a herpes virus.

Calicivirus: One of the major known infectious causes of oral and upper respiratory tract disease of domestic cats. It typically causes an acute disease characterized by pyrexia, oral ulceration, and mild ocular and nasal discharges. Some cats may become lethargic. The virus has also been associated with chronic stomatitis/gingivitis, pneumonia, diarrhea, jaundice, skin ulceration and more virulent strains may kill some cats, especially young kittens.

Chlamydia: Causes mainly an upper respiratory infection. Chlamydial infections tend to favor the eyes, and can cause infections here. Calici viral infections affect the upper respiratory tract, and can result in ulcers forming in the mouths of affected cats.

Feline Leukemia: A retrovirus that primarily affects cats, is transmitted through saliva, and causes suppression of the immune system and anemia, leading to opportunistic infections and diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma.

Feline Bordetella: A bacteria that infects cats that is extremely contagious and causes an upper respiratory infection. This bacteria can result in pneumonia and could possibly lead to death.

This web site is a hobby for me. However, the time and money involved makes this hobby an expensive one. I, alone, spend on average 4-6 hours a day ensuring the information is of the highest quality and the web site is maintained and available at all times.
