SEPTIC BITE WOUNDS CAN KILL YOUR PETS.
This good conditioned one-year-old hamster looked well after being bitten on the back by another hamster. At the 7th day, it was panting non-stop, indicating a fever and septic blood infection. It died within 10 minutes of arriving at the veterinary surgery. It was too late for treatment. The death was extremely sad for a young lady.
Any fight or bite wound in a dog, cat hamster or any pet must be taken seriously. It is best to consult a vet.
WARTS ON EARS IRRITATE THIS HAMSTER
Warts on the ear lobe tend to irritate this hamster. Several warts develop on the legs and body. Could this be due to a wart virus and stress?
ALLERGIC RASHES CAN BE VERY ITCHY FOR HAMSTERS TOO
This one-year dwarf hamster had a suspected dry feed allergy. After the first outbreak, it was fed on vegetables and was all right for around six weeks. Dry feed pellets were fed. The joints became red and swollen.
It is best to consult the vet as soon as the hamster's joints and lower belly are reddened with inflammation and itchiness.
Generalised pustular dermatitis. Pimples all over the body under the long coat. Needs grooming and veterinary attention.
12-year old poodle passing stools too many times was the complaint to the veterinarian. Hungry and thirsty all the time. Check with your veterinarian regarding diabetes in the dog.

Well-loved 15-year old Chihuahua survives another
hypersensitivity or allergic attack occasionally. Puffy and itchy eyes. Recovered after
veterinary treatment. One of the oldest Chihuahua in Singapore.
BICHON FRISE CARRIES A HEAVY LOAD
Some Owners may worry that the pet may die under anaesthesia and do not want any operation to remove any tumour. This big tumour can be removed but it is best to remove it when it is small. Consult your vet regarding the dog's health and risks..
Cats tend to lick its big leg wound continually, preventing healing. Early veterinary treatment will help considerably.
The Terror of Toa Payoh will investigate any meowing to find out who are the new kids on the block. This photo shows bite wounds on the neck. They become septic but a kind Malay woman brought it in for veterinary treatment. For this Terror, it is back to the hawker centre war zone again. What can we do?
1. HDB restrictions on cats as pets - info for expats renting HDB apartments.
2. Do cats have itchy backsides? Anal sacculitis in a cat.
3. Buy older, >3-month old pups
Rabbits with rough ears, nose, paws and skin. Do not abandon it. The veterinarian can cure this skin disease.
What causes the "crusty skin lump" to grow on the rabbit's nose?
|Jun 19 02. The kitten sneezes, has a green runny nose and watery eyes.||Jun 10 02. Was the hamster dying of old age?||Jun 6 02. The horse is bleeding at the penis.|

Kerosene kills young pets.
June 16, 1999. 4 p.m. Singapore.
4 teenagers adopted 4 cross-bred puppies (3 shown above) via Internet advertisements by a good Samaritan using the free internet classifieds services.
However, only one brought the puppy for veterinary treatment at Toa Payoh Vets. Later, 2 other friends came with 2 pups.
2/3 had died due to severe septicaemia, within 24 hours of arrival at the veterinary clinic.
The 2 which died had severe generalised skin infections (the black and white and the brown puppies in photos here).
The brown one was really smelly due to widespread pus spreading all over the skin.Its skin was "melted" with yellow pus. It could not even stand up. Kerosene has been commonly used by some of the older generation of Singaporeans to kill ticks in dogs. Effective safe tick washes are used nowadays.

Vomiting can be fatal to young pets.
The dehydrated kitten (see skin folds standing up prominently on back behind shoulders) was vomiting for several days before a kind soul sought veterinary treatment. It survived but this is a case of prolonged vomiting causing considerable loss of body water.
There are many unwanted kittens. The best solution is to sterilise the females so that there will not be unwanted kittens foraging the hawker centers and wet markets for food.
Many Singaporean pet owners have no time to seek early veterinary treatment. If you are not free, please page pet transport people to bring the pets to the veterinarian. Details are at:
