What kind of pain do cats and dogs suffer from the pursuit of purebred cats and dogs?

Most pet owners like to call their cats and dogs “companions” in their lives. It doesn’t matter if it’s loyalty or dimple. But as the owner, when choosing pets, it is often the survival of the fittest to see the pedigree. The purer the pet, the more popular it is.

At the end of the 19th century, pure cat appeared in the public view for the first time. At about the same time, dogs began to be the toys of the upper class. Some have also begun to pander to the obsession of purebred pet fans, breaking the rules of nature by mating their close relatives’ dogs.

As a result, because of incest, pets carry a large number of unrecoverable genetic diseases, such as congenital deafness in barley Town, epilepsy in poodle dog, heart disease in Maine cat and polycystic kidney disease in Persian cat.

Today, yiduiread wants to talk about the pain that human beings bring to cats and dogs in order to pursue loveliness.

King Charles Beagle: syringomyelia

King Charles Beagle is one of the six most popular breeds in Britain, and “syringomyelia” is one of the genetic diseases that afflict them. “Syringomyelia” is a neurological condition in which dogs have severe pain when anything, such as a collar, comes into contact with the scalp of a sick dog (such as the sensation of burns in humans). It is conservatively estimated that the number of King Charles terriers suffering from this disease now accounts for one third of the total.

The disease is mainly caused by a lack of space in the brain. For example, a person’s foot is 40 yards, but the raw is stuffed into a 36 yard shoe, which is a genetic defect caused by inbreeding. Although the sick dog is the same as other dogs in normal times, it will suffer a lot once it gets sick. Generally speaking, if the dog is in extreme pain, the doctor will give him a shot of diazepam to calm him down, while for the dog in serious condition, only brain surgery can be performed.

In addition, heart disease is also a genetic disease that afflicts King Charles beagles. As they grow older, the incidence of heart disease is higher and higher, especially after the age of 10, the incidence can reach 100%.

Samoa: diabetes and VKH syndrome

Samoa is naturally prone to diabetes, and it can’t convert the sugar it absorbs into energy. The main symptoms are increased drinking water, increased urine, increased food, but weight loss. Once these initial symptoms are ignored, the dog will be anorexia, vomiting, dehydration or even death due to exhaustion without timely treatment.

△ arranging Samoye’s food can effectively inhibit the risk of diabetes

VKH syndrome is an eye disease. At the beginning, it may be just vision decline and eye color changes. If the disease continues, glaucoma, cataract, retinal detachment and blindness may occur. Not only Samoye, but also the dog with drooping eyelids is specially bred due to the artificial requirements of dog shape and appearance, which increases the probability of eye infection.

Poodle: congenital epilepsy

Congenital epilepsy is common in purebred dogs, especially mini poodles. It is caused by biochemical defects of cortical neurons or lower cortical neurons. It usually occurs between six months and three years old in dogs. When the dog is sick, he will shake and twitch constantly, but his consciousness will not be lost.

The mini poodle is small in nature. Once it gets sick, not only the dog itself, but also the owner will suffer a lot. Because the sick dog may stay still, eyeball rotation, lip rotation or even suddenly fall to the ground, fecal incontinence and so on.

Persian cat: polycystic kidney disease

Like purebred dogs, purebred cats have a variety of genetic diseases. For example, in Persian cats, the common genetic disease is polycystic kidney, which has a very low cure rate.

Most of the disease occurs in Persian cats or cats of Persian cat lineage. 38% of Persian cats in the world suffer from the disease. It is very difficult to find the initial stage of the disease. Only when the renal failure occurs, the symptoms will appear, such as poor appetite, increased urination, no vitality and so on.

Broken ear cat: cartilage and bone development abnormality

The jacketed cat was an accident. In 1961, a little white cat named Susie was born in Perth, Scotland. But its ears are not as upright as other cats, but a little droopy and folded like dogs. Later, Susie’s two children also had their ears folded. Later, a local cat lover got one of them and used it to breed the foldaway cat.

Although this unique kitten has been favored by many cat lovers, geneticists believe that it is quite painful for a pet cat to suffer from a serious genetic disease.

The hereditary skeletal disease of jacketed cats is characterized by stiff tail, severe deformity of feet, inability to support body weight, and ingrown nails. If not built in time, they may penetrate the soles of feet. The sick cat is constantly receiving medical treatment, and may worsen paralysis. If it reaches the degree of paralysis, it can only choose the relief method of euthanasia for it.

Siam: breast cancer

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancer diseases in non sterile cats, and 80% of them are malignant. Siamese cats are more likely to develop breast cancer.

Siamese cat is the world famous short haired cat. After a long evolution, Siamese cat has changed from the earliest short fat to the standard Oriental slim. The pure Siamese cat is the “thinnest” cat in the world because of its fine bones, soft muscles, no fleshy body, short and shiny hair.

Among the Siamese females before the age of 6, the incidence of breast cancer is very high. Therefore, sterilization before the first estrus is the choice of most Siamese owners. However, I don’t know if it is because Siam is too thin and weak. Besides breast cancer, it is also prone to kidney failure, opposite eyes, lymphoma and other genetic diseases.

No business, no harm. When we grapple with the problem of “eating dog meat”, don’t forget that the common praise and pursuit of pure cats and dogs in life will also cause great harm to small animals.
