Infectious Diseases

P1010026_New.jpgCat Flu

Hi Alex, I am hoping you can help me. A little over 2 weeks ago my children were staying with their father. While they were there they had 2 kittens that started hanging around and appeared to have been abandoned by their owner. We have since taken them into care and they seem to be doing well accept they have had weepy eyes with a yellow discharge.

Feline AIDS (FIV)

Hi Alex, Yesterday I was talking to my neighbour about the nasty death of her cat “Rufus”, a big red Persian. A sad tale unfolded of prolonged illness that she informed me was finally diagnosed as Cat AIDS. Has she got this right, is there such a thing and could my moggie “Fat Louis” be in danger from catching it off Rufus during their many years of socialising? If so what can I do to make sure he doesn’t suffer the same fate? Please help “Fat Louis” and his concerned dad, cheers Adam.

Parvo

Alex,

I’m often down at Cox’s bay being exercised by my two energetic Staffies. The last time I was down there my club of fellow dog owners were talking about a Parvo outbreak in Auckland’s dogs. Should I be worried for my two boys, they were both vaccinated about 9 months ago. What’s going on out there? Simon, Westmere.

Parvo in Puppies

Hi guys, just wanted to ask Alex a question. We are getting a new puppy the week before Christmas. As you know we already have Zadie and our cat Marney. We also have a lab from next door, "Jack" who comes everywhere with us. This summer we are going away to Rakino Island with everyone mentioned above. Is it safe to have our new puppy running around on our property over there? Also there are a few people who wanted to bring their dogs over for the time they are staying. Would it be best to tell them not to bring their dogs? Your advice would be greatly appreciated. S.
