Cats

  • Azathioprine is an immunosuppressive agent that suppresses your pet's antibody responses and decreases inflammation.

  • Babesiosis is a tick borne disease which causes destruction of red blood cells resulting in anaemia and jaundice. Acutely affected dogs (and cats) appear depressed, weak and are disinclined to eat (anorexic).

  • This slow-growing tumour is a disordered overgrowth of cells of the skin epidermis. It gets its name from its resemblance under the microscope to the basal cell layer of epithelium.

  • These drugs are used to modify or treat a wide range of undesirable or unsociable behaviour or emotional disorders such as obsessive compulsive behaviour, separation anxiety, depression, and dominance aggression in dogs, and urine marking/spraying, inter-cat aggression and compulsive grooming in cats.

  • It is not unusual for behaviour problems to develop in older pets. Many of the problems have similar causes to those in younger pets.

  • Benazepril is used to treat heart failure in dogs and chronic kidney failure in cats. It dilates the arteries and veins thereby reducing blood pressure.

  • The names for the non-cancerous fibrous growths include collagenous hamartoma, fibroepithelial polyp, skin tag, cutaneous tag, hyperplastic or hypertrophic scar and acrochordon. A hamartoma is defined as a nodular, poorly circumscribed focus of redundant tissue.

  • When the time comes to say goodbye, all of us who value pets experience feelings and emotions that sometimes embarrass us, and often confuse us but which in fact follow a well recognised cycle.

  • Betamethasone is a corticosteroid used to treat inflammatory conditions involving the joints, skin conditions, eye conditions, and ear problems. There may be other conditions for which your veterinarian may prescribe this medication.

  • Bethanechol chloride is used to stimulate muscular contractions in your pet's bladder. It is used in pets unable to urinate.
