I have a cage of sparrows and we put 30 sparrows in that. After 2 month sporrow going to be died automaticaly. Can I know the reason for that. Is there need any medicine for birds?

M.V.Sc. & PhD Scholar Veterinary Medicine
Veterinarian, Navi Mumbai
Most probably overcrowding must be the reason for the death of sparrows. Because there are many different infections that can spread in overcrowded cage and mainly stress along with improper ventilation are the contributing factor for most the spread of all these diseases. So provide ample quantity of clean water, regular disinfection of the cage should be done and try to reduce the number of sparrows per cage. Hope this information is helpful for you. Thank you.

Which is best shampoo for lhasa apso hair and insects free.

MVSc, BVSc
Veterinarian,
Hi. Both things are difficult to achieve with same shampoo. The shampoos for insects, tend to dry up the skin coat which may not be good for fur quality in long run. Use insect shampoo, only when it is needed and not as routine. You can use bayer bolfo shampoo, diluted with water for insects. To achieve good fur/hairs explore using beapher all coat or white coat shampoo, which also contains conditioner. Don't forget to dilute any shampoo you use for dog before pouring on body.

My pug dog has skin allergy and doctors told that it is a scabies. I have been doing many treatment for some months but its doesnt work so what can i do for my little pug ?

MVSC
Veterinarian, Hyderabad
Scabies or skin problem in dogs takes a bit longer time to cure. Give your dog a well nutrition diet but slightly reduce quantity of protein in the diet for some days and observe. Trim the nails so that it wont scratch and increase the infection further. Continue wokazole and maintain hygiene at her surroundings. Try to avoid phenol compounds at home for moping the floor.

Question specifically for a veterinarian but open to all. Post exposure rabies vaccination in injured pet cat, bitten by unknown animal (probably by stray dog), with visible bite mark injuries on back, resulting in paralysis of the the rear section of the cat (hind legs dragging) due to fracture of the spinal chord. My cat (female, 4 years) old was bitten on April 14th 2016 by an unknown animal (the vet in my place India suspected it to be a dog). She was pregnant at the time of injury. The cat was vaccinated (rabies vaccine CANVAC® R) given in last January and February 2015, I took the cat in a jute sack to the veterinarian and his assistant ,however, injected the vaccines both the times through the sack, however he said to me that he was sure that the vaccines were injected successfully. The cat however missed the scheduled anti rabies booster dose in Feb 2016. Actually the cat it belonged to my aunt residing near my house but somehow she came to our place, however at night she always stay outside like a free roaming cat. Two months back (possibly nite of April 14th 2016) the injury took place and we found her in our garage dragging her hind limbs, the doctor (veterinarian ) confirmed it to be bite injury causing damage in her spinal column, she initially could not urinate on her own, her bladder has to be evacuated with catheter every alternate day for a month. She underwent cesarean on May 5th and two kitten survived, kitten are healthy. After the injury she was given post exposure prophylaxis 5 doses of Nobivac® Rabies on 0,3,7,14 and 28th starting from April 15th to May 13th (however the 7th and 14th dose delayed by 1 and 5 days due to urine infection and fever. Is this post exposure vaccination effective? The vet in my place performed an xray on May 16th and plain xray revealed irreparable spinal chord fracture (probably the teeth of the biting stray dog went inside the spinal chord). Other than unable to urinate on her own sometimes and the rear leg paralysis, the cat looks fine, will the post exposure rabies vaccine work, is there any chance of her developing rabies in the future? In my place, there is no vet center where we can quarantine her for 6 months , so we have kept her home? It will be almost 3 months after the injury and she has not show any signs of rabies, she is eating fine and behaving normally , other than unable to walk due to hind leg paralysis cause of the spinal chord injury. Somewhere I read in the internet that "--post exposure prophylaxis should not be given on injured cats cause it mask symptoms of infection (like rabies) in cats. The documented rabies quarantine time is 6 months. There is a chance that any pet bitten by an unknown animal can develop rabies as we cannot affirm that the attacker did not have rabies--" But the veterinarian in my place gave the post exposure rabies injection, is this correct? Is there any chance of developing rabies in my cat in the future? Me and my family are taking care of the cat in the best possible way.

Rabies can cause only and only by an infected mammal only to any mammal walking the earth. Infected mammals like a dog, may show typical signs of rabies (mad dog with ropy saliva from the jaws and red eyes), so easily identified a d isolated by fellow pack mates and humans. Rabies vaccination protects (doesn't mask the signs) a mammal like a cat or a dog or a human, from being infected by rabies when bitten by a rabid animal. Symptoms of rabies can be seen within a week to 10 days from the day of bite. Extra dosages of a rabies vaccine would not coz any harm as such except mild fever or local pain at the site of injection for a day or two. Your family is safe in handling the cat as it is not showing any such sign of the rabies infection so far. Rabies is transmitted only when your blood will come in contact with the saliva of an infected animal.

My dog lab male was 2 month but now its very lean what to give for his growth ?

M.V.Sc. & PhD Scholar Veterinary Medicine
Veterinarian,
Hi, please get your lab examined by your nearby veterinarian for presence of any illness. Further, you are supposed to give doses of deworming medicine on frequent intervals in the initial stages of life to control the worm load, if any. Also give your pet a good premium quality puppy food in adequate quantity on regular basis. This will surely help your pet to maintain proper and adequate body weight. Thank you.

Respected Sir/Madam (veterinary) I am very depressed for my pet's health. I have a dog (labrador 2 month old), he becomes very un-healthy and thin day by day. I give him drools puppy starter and home based foods like Rice, chapati and milk too but no result found yet. Please guide me.

MVSc (Ph.D pursuing)
Veterinarian, Hyderabad
Personally I'm too not satisfied with only dog food or only home Cooked food diet for dogs. They need 50℅ protein solely from animal source. I suggest you start giving 2 boiled eggs and Royal canine maxi junior in place of drools. Get the deworming done immediately. If already done within 2 weeks then wait till it gets over. Give some calcium supplement in case you r not giving royal canine food twice a day. But see that you don't change the food immediately. It will suppress the immunity of your puppy. Do it gradually over a period of 7-10 days.

Vaccination from vet should start from 45 day of puppy birth. Its the time when dhppi or 9 in 1 or 7 in 1 vaccine starts. This vaccine mainly immunes puppy from diseases like parvo and distemper. Upto 4 and half month, a series of vaccines will be given to puppy. Consult your nearby vet and go for vaccination whenever he or she calls your puppy.

Hello dr, how to treat a street dog suffering from itching.

Master of sciences, B.V.Sc. & A.H.
Veterinarian,
Some one has to first retrain the dog so that your local vet can inject medicine. Still we can feel your feeling for it but try to catch hold him or try to become friendly with him in a week by feeding foodies and then you can control him. So vets can treat him also.
