2020-10-23T14:55:16-07:00October 23rd, 2020|Behavioral, Cats, Current News, Tips|

Cats are interesting creatures when it comes to their social lives. They are highly prone to stress, especially in households with more than one cat. This stress can cause chronic disease, especially of the urinary tract. It is so important that have a page dedicated to this problem called Urinary Tract Disease in Cats. When this disease is caused by excess stress it is called Idiopathic Cystitis. There is even speculation that excess stress causes a "Pandora Syndrome" in cats with aspects that are similar to humans. In cats the excess stress can exacerbate skin conditions like psychogenic alopecia (a

Sandhill Cranes of Michigan

Sandhill Cranes are a large, colorful, wary, and loud bird. Oftentimes I hear them in the distance long before I see them. This is advantageous since now I have time to set my camera and focus on them as they fly by.

The following photos of them flying were all taken with a Canon 1Dx Mark II DSLR, using a 400 mm D. O. lens. They were taken at ISO 2,000,

I took that as my

The Osprey and the Crow

Lots of action at Bolsa Chica Wetlands recently. We watched an osprey return with its catch, only to be bothered by a crow for a period of time. Eventually the crowed realized the osprey was not dropping the fish, and after squawking for his buddies to show up to no avail, the crow left. Flying in, with the fish held head-first The branch he landed on was one he was accustomed to The foot with the fish was locked in place and he had to land with the other foot It was difficult to balance the still thrashing fish on

Today was another great experience at LBAH.  I started my day going over very important cases with Dr. P, cases that are very common on a daily basis for veterinarians.  The case we discussed was about Lil man.  Lil man is a 10.5 year old neutered male Shitzu that came in because he was not eating, and unexplained urinary accidents at home.  His examination and lab diagnostics pointed towards a infection in the urinary system.  With a great assessment by the doctors and proper medical treatment, Frankie has been doing much better at home since he was discharged.  Urinary diseases
