Yesterday the veterinarians and technicians of Omaha spent the day at the Nebraska Humane Society learning from world-renowned cat expert, Dr. Susan Little.
The topics of the day were...
Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) - where young cats die, but it is not all hopeless (but mostly)
Feline Leukemia (FeLV) - where cats can get really sick, but they can do well
Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) - where cats get infected but they can do well too
Diabetes - where cats pee a lot and feel sick from all the sugar
Hyperaldosteronism - where cats lose their potassium and feel like crap but it is treatable with surgery, but not by me
Feline Interstitial Cystitis - where cats pee on the floor, but they wish they could stop as much as you wish they would stop because it also hurts. As is often the case in life, when stress is managed, everything gets better.
It was a very fun day. Thank you Dr. Little! I always learn so much from you.
I also got to sit with friends and meet dogs and cats and a very cute mouse.
