Is there a genetic disease in hybrid cat with broken ears

       Scotch cat with folded ears

       The genetic diseases of cat with broken ears are mainly genetic bone diseases. To judge whether a cat with broken ears is suffering from bone genetic diseases, doctors need to make a professional diagnosis. However, as the owners, we can actually observe the broken eared cats from their daily life and whether they need to take the cats for examination. The earlier the cat’s problems are observed, the earlier they can be treated. This will be of great help to control the hereditary skeletal disease of the cat with broken ears. The onset period of the cat varies from 2 months to 6 months, but some cases begin to develop after the age of 1 year.

       1¡¢ In the early stage of the disease, the cat will not be active at first, and then it will have movement disorder. The obvious symptoms include

       1. The tail is thick, short, stiff and inflexible, and the tail of some sick cats can’t swing.

       2. The hind limbs are too short, with unusual curvature, augmentation or mass.

       3. Swelling of limbs joints.

       4. The soles of the hind feet are abnormally thick. If you observe carefully, when the cat sits upright, the pillow meat of the hind paw cannot touch the ground.

       5. Abnormal nail growth.

       6. Similar symptoms can be found in the forelimb of a cat with broken ears, but the emotion is more severe than that of the hind limb.

       2¡¢ In some cases, genetic disease can be clearly seen at birth or shortly after birth

       However, more folding eared cats do not have obvious symptoms in their early childhood, and their bones will gradually change over time. When they can’t bear it, the disease will appear. As long as the owners pay more attention to the details of the cat in their daily life, they are likely to find early symptoms

       1. It’s obviously a baby cat (before 1 year old), but he doesn’t like to move. He always sits in the same place. Baby cat is naturally mischievous. If it does not move to the hair stick, it may be because it feels pain and therefore avoids walking.

       2. The cat is very good and never jumps on the master’s bed, windowsill, dining table or chair. Jumping is one of the most important parts of a cat. Is it unable to reach a high place because he has no consciousness of climbing, or is he unable to jump at all?

       3. The cat itself is very lively and cheerful. I don’t know why it suddenly becomes quiet. It may be because it feels pain when it is active, so it reduces its activity.

       4. The cat did not know why she learned hand, hand, very cute recently! Please be careful. If you haven’t taught the cat hand, how can it understand? If it is found that the cat often raises its hand without any reason, it is likely that it will feel pain when the joint is pressed, so it will automatically lift its hand.

       5. The cat is suddenly listless and has no appetite. It is likely that the cat will feel pain and be depressed.

       6. When cats walk, they often bow their back. Are they nervous? Most likely because of the joint pressure pain, so walking will be more comfortable.

       7. The cat limps when walking, or falls to the ground after two steps. It is obvious that the cat needs to see a doctor immediately.

       There is no cure for this hereditary skeletal disease, and most of it is getting worse. At present, veterinarians can only use drugs to relieve the pain and slow down the deterioration of the cat’s condition. However, when the condition deteriorates, bone lesions gradually spread to the spine, paralyzing the cat and causing great pain. When the cat can’t bear the pain, the owner has to put the cat to death. The skeletal genetic disease of a cat with broken ears is not limited to young cats. As long as a cat carries the gene for folding ear, it may also have pathological changes at any time in his life. A cat with broken ears can’t speak. Even if it’s sick, it can’t ask to see a doctor. Only if we parents pay more attention to cats, can we keep them in good health.

       The common genetic diseases of Scotch fold eared cats are cartilage dysplasia and respiratory tract stenosis.

       The onset age of chondrodysplasia in a cat with broken ears usually ranges from two months to six months. Even adults may get the disease, as long as the cat has the gene for this abnormal cartilage hyperplasia. The most obvious symptom is that the hind legs are lame, and sometimes they lift their hands and bow their back. In addition, the tail looks thick and short, and the joints are a little stiff. The hind limb bones and joints of the sick cat were abnormal. It can be seen that the toes are deformed, and the claws can not stretch normally. The symptoms of the forelimb are similar but mild.

       The respiratory tract of the cat with folded ears is narrow, which makes it difficult to breathe smoothly. If the cat with broken ears can’t breathe normally, surgery should be performed to widen the respiratory tract.

       The reason why Scotch cat has the above genetic diseases is that people have selectively left and changed its genes. Folding eared cats originate from a gene mutation. People find this kind of appearance cute by chance, so they want to get more cats with folded ears. But as more and more Scottish folding eared cats are bred, people realize that this kind of cute cat has the curse of the day. In general, the limbs, tail and joints of a cat with broken ears will be deformed, and the folded ears will easily cause infection, ear mites and hearing loss. Despite the efforts of geneticists, the problem of joint deformity has been controlled, but there are still many purebred cat associations that refuse to recognize this breed

       No, there will be bad and disordered reproduction. Genetic diseases mainly depend on the genes of the previous generation. The genes of the previous generation may or may not have the organic rate.

       It is said that in 1961, a female cat in a hunter’s house in Scotland gave birth to a litter of kittens. Among them, there is a lovely kitten with white fur, tight ears and like an elf Because of its origin close to Scotland, Cooper Angus has since been named “Scotch fold eared cat” according to its birthplace and the phenomenon of its ears falling down. The first cat, Susie, was the ancestor of the Scotch cat, Susie gave birth to another white one. At this point, a shepherd’s neighbor, William Ross, noticed that Susie had unique ears. So he decided to work with his wife, Mary, to experiment with this kitten and breed a new breed with folded ears. However, a cat with broken ears has a natural “genetic defect” and can only have sex with a standing ear cat. The kittens bred with folded ears and broken ears have genetic diseases. Once they have lifelong pain, they will cause inconvenience in movement.

       Also organic rate, if the cat’s father and mother are carrying the ear fold gene, then the disease is 100%. But it’s also important.

       It would be much better if parents had carried it all the time and never carried it. The risk of genetic disease is greatly reduced, and the situation is also light

       As long as they carry the gene, they belong to the cat with folded ears. Whether they are standing ears or folded ears, the shape of ears is only superficial.

       Skeletal genetic disease of cat with broken ears

       The hereditary skeletal disease of the cat with broken ears is called “chondroossification”. According to Dr. O. Jackson in the United Kingdom, the reason for this genetic disease is that two cats with broken ears have been infected. He thinks that as long as the cat with broken ears and the cat without broken ears can avoid giving birth to kittens with genetic diseases.

       Influenced by this statement, many breeders believe that if the ear is only as short as English, short as American and erect, the probability of suffering from skeletal genetic diseases will be greatly reduced. Unfortunately, this is not the case.

       According to the Dr.Richard Malik’s study in 1999 indicated that all cats with the gene of fold ear have the chance to have some degree of bone and joint disease. The only way to avoid this genetic disease is to give up breeding a cat with broken ears. In addition, it has been proved from the present cases that the kittens born to the folded ear cat and the non folded ear cat will get the same genetic disease.

       Skeletal genetic diseases

       Folding cat has a natural skeletal disease, once the onset of life-long pain

       Although not every cat with folded ears is bound to develop the disease, all of them are at risk. The severity of symptoms and the age of onset vary from individual to individual. From infancy to middle age, it may occur. Some studies even show that many Scotch cat with normal limb function can also see slight characteristic changes on radiographs. As long as a cat has a broken ear gene, he may have disease at any time in his life. Cats are hard to say, even if they have pain, they can’t ask for medical treatment. Therefore, as a cat with broken ears, parents must understand the relevant knowledge and pay more attention to it at ordinary times. Don’t think that the sitting posture of a cat with folded ears is very cute just like a human being. In fact, it is due to the stiffness of its hind limbs or the pain during flexion. Once it appears, it needs to be alerted. In the early stage of the disease, the sick cats will show no activity, and then their movement will be impaired. The obvious symptoms include:

       1) The tail is thick, short, stiff and inflexible, and the tail of some sick cats cannot be swung.

       2) The posterior part is too short, with unusual curvature, augmentation or mass.

       3) The joints of the limbs are swollen and the toes are deformed due to the swelling of the joints.

       4) The hind paw is extremely thick. If you observe carefully, when the cat sits upright, the pillow meat of the hind paw can not touch the ground.

       5) Toenails grow abnormally, and the pads are thicker than normal cats.

       6) The forelimb of the broken ear cat will also have similar symptoms, but the feeling is lighter than the hind limb, and it will habitually lift the foot.

       Maintenance of bone genetic diseases

       Because it is a genetic disease, this genetic disease can not be prevented and can not be cured. Generally, it will be discovered when the cat has symptoms, and most of the disease will continue to deteriorate. Veterinarians can only use drugs to ease the condition, help the cat reduce the pain and slow down the deterioration rate. Cats need to spend their lives in pain and medicine. In some cats with severe illness, bone lesions will slowly spread to the spine, paralyzing the cat and causing great pain.

       About medication

       First of all, two misunderstandings are clarified: a drug is not specific, and DNA alignment is irreversible. In addition, calcium does not have any help to the disease, calcium, but will accelerate the calcification of cartilage and osteophyte.

       If your broken ears are in good condition, then in addition to joint medicine, you only need to add some omg3. If you are not in good health, you need to add some omg3. If you are not in good health, you need to eat fresh beef, chicken, or salmon. Omg3 is mainly good for the heart, because the broken ears also have the problem of myocardial hypertrophy, followed by fur, joints, and cats Hyperlipidemia and diabetes also have a certain preventive effect. There are also special cartilage supplements for cats in foreign countries, which can restore the health of cats for a long time.

       Other common diseases of cat with broken ears

       In addition to hereditary skeletal diseases, there are also the following diseases commonly found in cats with broken ears:

       1) Respiratory problems

       In addition to the bone of hand and foot, the gene of bone disease can also affect the abnormal development of cartilage in other parts of the body. The most common cause of respiratory obstruction is the narrowing of the respiratory tract. In severe cases, surgical operation is needed to widen the suction tube. In addition, there will be nosebleed, but the cause is not yet clear and there is no way to treat it.

       2) Weak constitution

       In one case, the cat’s body shape and weight were only two-thirds of that of a normal cat, and had been infected with cat plague, skin diseases, allergies and other diseases.

       3) Heart disease

       Myocardial hypertrophy is also common in cats with broken ears, but it is generally difficult to find. Until the symptoms appear, there is a life-threatening situation. Cats need to control their diet and take medicine for life.

       No, genetic diseases are usually caused by irregular breeding, such as folding eared cats with folded eared cats or close relatives or close relatives + fold eared cats

       This problem will not occur in the normal British short eared cat, the American short eared cat or the genuine folded ear cat without blood relationship

       Chinese people have no common sense and no integrity. What’s more, they use Garfield puppets to make Siamese eared cats more confused, and other kinds of diseases are also mixed into the folded eared cats

       Scottish fold is a cat species with natural mutations in the ear. This cat has a fold in the cartilaginous part that bends the ear forward and points to the front of the head. Since the cat was first found in Scotland, it is named after its place of discovery and its physical characteristics. Since then, the cat has continued to breed in the United States and has evolved into many of today’s breeds. At present, there are two different pairs of Scotch cat: the long haired cat and the short haired cat, and the folded ear and vertical eared cat.

       The dominant gene trait that causes the cat’s ears to fold forward was first discovered in Scotland in 1961. The original ancestor of the Scotch cat, Susie, was found on a farm in Perth Kinross in the Scottish Highlands and in coupar Angus on Lake Tai. William Ross, a local shepherd, and his wife, Mary, are both cat lovers. They found a very special white female cat on the McRae farm next door, because Susie’s ears had an unusual twist in the middle, which made her ears roll up and look like an owl.

       Susie later became pregnant with a British kitten. When Susie gave birth to a kitten, one of the two cats was also born with rolled ears. One of the white females of the two kittens was later adopted by William Ross, while the other white male, snowball, was used for mating. Ross then registered the pedigree of his cat with the Government Council of the cat country in the United Kingdom, and the new breed was named folding ear cat according to its genetic characteristics of rolling ears. With the help of geneticist pat Turner, Ross began breeding the Scotch cat. In the first three years, a total of 76 kittens were born, of which 42 had folded ears and 34 had normal straight ears. From this result, we can see that the “broken ear” is dominated by a dominant gene: if one of the parents has a straight ear gene and the other has a broken ear gene, the cat will have a broken ear.

       Unfortunately, the dominant genes for limb, tail and joint deformities and broken ears were so closely associated that in 1971 GCCF had to stop recognizing the variety. The breed was not accepted for showing in Great Britain and Europe as it was felt that they would be extremely susceptible to ear problems such as infection, mites and deafness.

       It began to enter Europe in 1980. The first Scottish Fold eared kitten in France was born in 1982. However, both fife and GCCF did not recognize this variety. Scottish jacketed cats are rare throughout the continent.

       In the United States, the Scotch fold eared cat crossed with the Persian cat to produce a new breed of long hair, called plateau fold ear cat or long hair Scottish Fold ear cat. TICA has recognized the variety.

       In 1987, in Germany, a cross between the Scottish Fold eared cat and the lex cat produced pudelkatze or shepherd cat, a cat with curly fur and drooping ears. Pudelkatze has not been recognized as a variety because its number is very small.

       In 1971, GCCF, the largest cat club in the UK, banned the use of cats with broken ears because of a genetic disease with severe bone lesions found in them.

       Hong Kong Scottish Fold sick Concern Group has also been set up in Hong Kong, China, to oppose the breeding of kinky cats. http://forum.hksfsickcats.com

       In the 1970s, people began to pay attention to the case of deformed cats. The first genetic research on the cat with folded ears was proposed by British geneticists dyte and Turner in 1973. Later, Oliphant F. Jackson believed that these skeletal abnormalities were deformities.

       The so-called deformities include: an inflexible tail, severe deformities of the feet, inability to support the weight of the body, and ingrown nails, which may penetrate the sole of the foot.

       In 1975, a study by Dr. o Jackson in England pointed out that the genetic disease was caused by two cats with broken ears. He thinks that as long as the cat with broken ears and those without broken ears can avoid the birth of kittens with genetic diseases. However, according to a study conducted in 1999 by Dr. Richard Malik of the University of Sydney, Australia, it was found that all cats with fold ear gene have a chance to develop some degree of bone and joint lesions. The only way to avoid this genetic disease is to give up breeding a cat with broken ears. In addition, it has been proved from the present case that the kittens born to the folded ear cat and the non folded ear cat will get the same genetic disease.

       For this genetic disease, it is generally necessary to wait for the cat symptoms to be found, there is no way to cure, and most of the disease will continue to deteriorate. At present, veterinarians can only use drugs to ease the condition, help cats relieve pain and slow down the deterioration rate. Cats have to spend their lives in pain and medicine. In some cats with severe illness, bone lesions will slowly spread to the spine, paralyzing the cat and causing great pain. When the cat can’t bear the pain, the owner has to put the cat to death.

       The obvious symptoms of bone genetic diseases are as follows

       1. The tail is thick and short, stiff and inflexible, and the tail of some sick cats can’t swing

       2. The hind limbs are too short with unusual curvature, augmentation or mass

       3. Limb joint swelling

       4. The soles of the hind feet are abnormally thick. If you observe carefully, when the cat sits upright, the pillow meat of the hind paw cannot touch the ground

       5. Abnormal growth of nails

       In addition to hereditary skeletal diseases, the following diseases are common in the broken ear cats:

       1. Respiratory problems

       In addition to affecting the bones of hands and feet, the genes of bone diseases also affect the abnormal development of cartilage in other parts of the body. It is more common that the respiratory tract is narrowed, which leads to poor breathing. In severe cases, surgical operation is needed to widen the respiratory tract. In addition, nosebleed may occur,

       However, the cause of the disease is still unknown and there is no way to cure it.

       2. Weak constitution

       The body size and weight of sick cats are only 2 / 3 of that of normal cats. They are more susceptible to feline plague, skin diseases and allergies.

       3. Heart disease

       Myocardial hypertrophy is also common in cats with broken ears, but it is generally difficult to find out. Until the onset of the disease, there is a life-threatening situation. Cats need to control their diet and take medicine for life.

       “Mutation” plays an important role in evolution. It makes organisms more adaptable to the rapidly changing environment, but on the other hand, it may be easier to be eliminated. Some mutations make animals look particularly cute, although this does not make them more suitable for survival, people will still use breeding to preserve these rare features and business opportunities. At the same time, some abnormal genes may be preserved at the same time. Now the popular pet, the Gryphon, is a good example.

       Due to selective breeding, a common hereditary bone disease, osteochondral hypoplasia, has emerged in Scotch split eared cats, which is believed to be related to the gene responsible for the ear fold. The diagnosis of this disease is based on the characteristic bone lesions on radiologic images and osteopenia of related bones. In the first few years of the appearance of the cat with broken ears on the market, many veterinarians mistook these bone lesions as bone tumors.

       Some studies have even shown that a lot of Scotch fold eared cats with normal limb function can also see slight characteristic changes on radiographs. As the disease is related to the gene that causes the broken ears, it can be said that all Scottish folding ear cats with the characteristics of broken ears can not have completely normal limb joints. Some scholars even think that the folded ear cats should not be bred at all. People must make a humane and wise choice between the cute folded ears and the healthy limbs of cats.

       There is a mutation in the Scottish Fold ear that affects its cartilage, most notably by softening the ear bone several times, so the ear bends forward and down. This mutation results from a simple dominant gene. Unfortunately, all cats with broken ears suffer from degenerative joint disease of varying degrees, which often leads to clinical lameness, unwillingness to jump, rigid gait, deformity of short limbs, and swelling of tarsometatarsal. If only one parent of a kitten has a broken ear gene, the result will be mild. If both parents have a broken ear, the kitten’s symptoms will be seriously affected. Therefore, this is not accepted by the United Kingdom and the Federal International. As long as there is a broken ear gene, it is impossible to have 100% normal bones, only severe and mild.

       I have heard of the genetic disease of the cat, but the incidence rate is not too high. It is invisible. It is invisible. And the cat is generally used as a cat, but not wild cat. It is not very happy to go out, but if you open it, it will go out. Curiosity is the cat’s nature. In fact, in some ways, the earth cat is higher than the pure breed. In estrus, if you don’t care if the kitten is not purebred, it doesn’t matter, but the kittens born may not be very good-looking. If it is purely for the sake of domestic company, sterilization is recommended. Above, hope to adopt.
