Avatar n tn Cats, if infected with toxoplasmosis, only shed the disease for 2 weeks or so in feces during their life time. Since your cats go outside they can become infected at any time (if not already infected). Your veterinarian can diagnosis Toxoplasmosis through a blood test and your cats can be treated for the parasitic disease with Clindamycin antibiotics. Please check the following article from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine: http://www.vet.cornell.
Avatar f tn If she was in heat and managed to get with a male dog, it's pretty much a given that she will be pregnant. Some signs you can look for are weight gain andher nipples will get larger. As she gets closer to whelping she will REALLY show a lot of weight gain, if you gently squeeze her nipples you will be able to express some milk from them, and when she is ready to actually have the puppies,l her body temperature will drop really low (for a dog) and she will refuse food.
Avatar f tn Hi All, I read online that it is bad for the baby during pregnancy for the mother to smell cat poop and urine. I searched for this online, however there are few results and not clearly gives answer to my question. Is this true?
Avatar f tn If your cat had her uterus removed and an ovary was left behind and somehow some sperm reached an egg, she would have an ectopic pregnancy (it's kind of funny to talk about this in relation to cats) and would need medical help when the kitten is ready to come out. It would probably take an X-ray to determine whether she is pregnant, though.
Avatar n tn I am 13 weeks pregnant and own 2 cats. One has just entered the house and vomited what appears to be a dead mouse. Now I know that there is a huge risk in pregnancy with toxyplasmosis with cat faeces but wondered what risk this poses? I have gone upstairs in my house awaiting my mum to arrive to clear the vomit in case it is risky for me. But is there anything else I need to do to reduce the risk of the disease in this circumstance?
Avatar f tn I am 17 weeks preggies and have 3 cats.... I have already been tested for Toxoplasmosis and all is clear (my cats are pretty much indoors most of the time except for 1 naughty one who keeps escaping off our balcony and visits all the other neighbourhood cats ;-)... but what is concerning me is that I have already had to de-worm my cats twice since I fell pregnant... and now I feel the obvious symptoms of having picked up their dreaded worms!! YUCK!
7558356 tn?1410718909 Here are some of the more common, as well as some of the weird and unusual signs of impending labor. Once you reach 37 weeks of pregnancy, baby is considered term and at 40 weeks, full term - but it's still not unusual to go as far as 42 weeks.The last weeks and days can really stretch, especially when you're looking for any sign that something is beginning to happen.Here is a list of some of the signs that may indicate labor is either about to start or will be starting in the next few days.
562815 tn?1222055860 It's possible (although not likely) that she didn't conceive when she was bred and is having a false pregnancy. Cats and dogs that have false pregnancies exhibit all the signs that an animal having a normal pregnancy would, but the fact that you say she is acting like she's in season again is odd. It certainly bears looking into. If she is pregnant, it would have been safer to spay her and abort the litter than it would be for a cat that young to deliver a litter.
Avatar n tn If your Doctor says it is ok go for it, just watch out for the signs and if they offer you a blood patch say NO! I have found that I am the third recorded person that this has happened to but I bet there are many more.
Avatar f tn She swears up and down she didn't touch cat poop but you don't know for sure. Cats can carry the feces anywhere in the house by having on their paws. They walk everywhere on counters, pillows, couches. Maybe you don't wipe your table before making food on it. Or there's small pieces on the carpet you walk on.

Avatar n tn I am waiting to take my test which is scheduled for Thursday. I took a home pregnancy test (yes, I yielded to temptation and was so disappointed when it came back negative) My sister had her test on Monday and it came back negative. The test I used stated it was "sensitive" enough to pick up levels as low as 20. What should the levels be by now?
199177 tn?1490502134 I just cant believe this she now has a web site asking for donations . She wanted all of these kids but she expects others to pay for them.This is so wrong ...
Avatar f tn We were having HORRIBLE flea infestations too with all our dogs and cats. Look up Trifexis. It has been the only thing that has worked for our dogs. Also u will need to exterminate your home professionslly at this point. Also, dogs are hard work and dont usually come trained. Your going to have to train the dog, if you dont know how then get advice from someone who does or a professional. Labs have soooo much energy, make sure its getting the excersise it needs.

Avatar n tn How would I leave work because I will not be eligible for maternity leave, so would I just quit or have a MD's note exempt me from work for a certain amount of time? Also, my fiance thinks I should just stay home and relax while on unemployment, but at the same time bills are piling up and he is getting really stressed. The job is an easy job, sitting at a computer for some of the day and walking around for some of the day, but it is full time. Please......someone tell me what I should do.
Avatar f tn Congrats on your pregnancy...hopefully my situation will turn around for me! Sorry for the negativity girls...just having a tough night!! I wish you all the best!
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar f tn Cats and dogs sense pregnancy!
1710194 tn?1308935394 chance that we could have round worm from the animals. Does anyone have experience with this? Are there any signs or symptoms I should be looking for? We are going to get tested but I'm currently pregnant and don't want this to cause any problems with the pregnancy. Can someone please help?
Avatar f tn Cats can carry a protozoan that leads to toxoplasmosis - the eggs of this protozoan are excreted in their feces. That's why pregnant women aren't supposed to scoop feline poop. Here is an excerpt from the following website: http://www.2ndchance.info/toxoplasmosis.htm "A problem arises when woman becomes infected during pregnancy. In these cases one half to one third of the infants produced by these pregnancies become infected while still within the womb.
1305767 tn?1361196276 Or they might do the voucher program. Some programs are for feral cats, for trap and release to keep populations down, and others are for all cats. We even have a place called the Spay and Neuter Alliance and Clinic (SNAC) where the only thing they do is spay and neuter. They even pick up and drop off in certain areas. Do a little research, and you might have something similar where you live. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Usually, just before giving birth, the temperature makes a sudden drop, and that is one of the signs birth is near. But for it to be up is not normal. Another possibility is (even if the dog WAS sterile) -that she could have developed cystitis after mating,which can happen sometimes. Take a urine sample with you when you take her to the vet. It might help with diagnosis.
562511 tn?1285907760 Also, the queen was 9 months old and was told this growth happens more often in young cats following delivery. Sadly to say she had to be put to sleep because the bill would have been $2000.00 - for starters! So what is this condition called as described above? She can't remember what the vet said. She is devastated, as am I. BTW - her litter will be ok. They were only nursing for naps. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Yes I have 2 cats changed it throughout my whole pregnancy and gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby girl.
Avatar f tn I didn't have any signs with my last one. I had the runs all my last pregnancy too so that wasn't a sign or anything. But I was scheduled to be induced so I stayed in the hospital overnight and literally went into labor one hour before my scheduled induction.
1214758 tn?1320481686 There is no reason to worry unless you start to show signs of infection. I have heard about this one too. I'm around all kinds of animals and just have to make sure I wash my hands a lot and especially stay away from sick animals.
Avatar f tn My 3 of my babies have been around cats and never once did they show signs of killing them. Try to relax and to hell with people and their comments!!
