47 – Signs of illness in dogs & cats – Interview with Dr. Lee

Pet podcast #47 features an interview with our podcasting veterinarian Dr. Lee .  In this podcast we discuss the signs of illness in cats and dogs and we also discuss myths about illness. Many pet owners mistakenly think that all they have to do is touch their pet’s skin or nose and they can diagnose illness in that simple way. This is a dangerous mistake and in this podcast we discuss why.

    I have a cat named Pringles. He was diagnosed with feline leukemia a couple of years ago and has been doing well up until 2 weeks ago. He hasn’t eaten much in the past 2 weeks and has been drinking lots of water and sleeping. He has lost so much weight and I have tried everything I can think of to get him to eat. I even put table food in his dish but still, he won’t eat. I am at a loss as to what I can do. The nearest vet is 5 hours away. I am broken-hearted. He is such a good cat, very loving and cuddly. It kills me to see him like this. What can I do???

    You can get in your car and drive the 5 hours – It’s the least you can do for your very loving and cuddly cat. Sorry to be blunt but this is your only option.

    When he was diagnosed, the vet had told me then that there was nothing more to do except to take him home and make him comfortable. I did that and he lasted 12 months longer than they had given him. I cared deeply for him and would have driven to the vet if I thought there was a cure for his disease. I sadly had him put down a couple of weeks ago and I am still very saddend by it all.
