Is there any genetic disease in the 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 is 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 change slowly 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 diseases

       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.

       It’s a genetic disease. Of course, it can’t be cured… This is a genetic defect. There is no way out. Now many pet breeds bred in modern times have genetic defects. If there is no way to cure them, they can only delay it in this way. Therefore, these pets are really pitiful. They would not survive the natural selection law, but human intervention has made this genetic defect survive, and then generations of pets are just like this Forced to linger

       “The cat with broken ears has a congenital genetic disease, called chondroossification and dysplasia (that’s why the ears break). This kind of disease is carried in the gene, and can not be prevented or treated. Once it gets sick, it can only maintain a cat’s painful life for several years with a monthly drug fee of several thousand yuan, or euthanasia. “

       I saw it on other people’s blogs…

       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 doesn’t love to run out. But if you open the door, it will go out. It’s cat’s nature. Actually, in some ways, the earth cat is higher than the pure breed. If you don’t care if the kitten is not purebred, it doesn’t matter. However, the kittens may not be very good-looking. If it is purely for the sake of domestic company, sterilization is recommended. Above, hope to adopt.

       You can’t see that you can only buy it from a conscientious breeder

       Pay attention to scientific breeding of cats

       It must be unscientific for you to raise them

       Breeds of cats, especially the one with the more troublesome genetic disease, the ear fold

       Don’t breed yourself

       It’s better to be a pet by sterilization

       Because you don’t know how to tell

       No place to buy regret medicine

       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

       Skeletal genetic disease of cat with broken ears

       The hereditary skeletal disease of the cat with broken ears is called osteochondrial dysplasia. In 1975, a study by Dr. O. Jackson in the United Kingdom 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 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

       A cat with broken ears has a natural skeletal disease. Once it is attacked, it will have lifelong 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 hind limbs are 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 should be clarified: one is that there is no specific drug, 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 respiratory obstruction caused by narrowing of respiratory duct. In severe cases, surgical operation is needed to widen the respiratory tract. 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.

       Small fold ear – Scottish Fold ear cat. Folding ear cat is born with hereditary bone disease, that is, abnormal cartilage ossification and development. All cats with broken ear gene have the chance to have some degree of bone and joint disease. This is a typical genetic disease in a cat with broken ears. First, bone hyperplasia, then bone spur, and finally paralysis. The onset period ranged from 2 months to 6 months, but some cases began to develop after 1 year old. There is no way to cure this hereditary skeletal disease, and most of the disease will continue to deteriorate and can not be cured. And the only way to avoid this genetic disease is to give up breeding the cat with broken ears.
