Ask the Expert.. March April 2013

Dr KG Umesh (MVSc, MSc (UK)) is a Postgraduate in Clinical Medicine. He is working for WALTHAM as Regional Associate for South Asia.

Q: I am shifting from Bengaluru to Pune. I have two cats – three and five years old – who have never travelled. What is the best manner to travel with them – by road or flight? How do I accustom them to travel? Should I buy separate crates for them?
– R Murli, Bengaluru

Dr K G Umesh: One of the best investments you must make when you have cats is to buy a modern carrying

cage/crate that can be easily cleaned and disinfected. Cats being transported by whatever means should always travel in a safe carrier. If your cats live together and are familiar, you can put them in a single carrier. The pets should also have a tag to make it easy to track them if they get lost. Visit a vet prior to your journey to ascertain that the pets are in good health and are vaccinated. Give them a light meal about two hours before they travel. Let your pets ‘try out’ the carrying container before the trip and put a familiar-smelling stuff in the container to help your pets settle. Give your pets the opportunity to go to the toilet before they are put in the carrying containers. If you are planning to travel by road, make sure your cats are accustomed to car travel. This can be done by letting the cats just sit in the car without the car moving. When the cats are comfortable with this, take the cats round the block, and gradually move up to taking the cats on journeys for 5 minutes, 10 minutes, etc. You will also know if they are likely to be sick or excitable in the car. If your pets’ car sickness is truly motion related, your vet can also prescribe medications to fight travel illness.

Q: My three-year-old cat Tom is having a lot of hair fall, especially in certain area patches. Is this some allergy? What should we do?
– Ashish Shukla, Ghaziabad

Dr K G Umesh: Hair loss/shedding is a common complaint with skin disorders and results from number of

Chokki

causes. Cats may shed excessive hair because of stress, worms, harsh climate and general illness. Therefore, my approach would be to find underlying cause(s) like fleas, ticks, mange or allergy, hormonal imbalance, bacterial or yeast infection, etc and then your vet will be able to recommend suitable medications that will eliminate the cause and therefore hair fall. Balanced and complete nutrition is most important for healthy skin and hair coat.

feactures fun and frolic

Tarots 2013

  • Aries Feactures fun and frolic
    (Mar 21 – April 20)
    This little chap is loyal and trustworthy. He is a creature of habit, and likes order in life… he dislikes if his life is re-arranged. With his walks, food and treats… he likes them at the same time each day. Any delay upsets him. He also likes his favourite chair or piece of furniture so he can lounge around and feel relaxed. He’s not a pooch who would enjoy being put into a boarding while you travel. He’s best kept with a friend who he gets on with. He easily falls in love with people, so is loved by all.
  • Taurus
    (Apr 21 – May 21)
    He is always in a hurry and has so much energy… he makes friends easily. Once he does, he is very devoted and dependable. He prefers open areas and does not like living in the city as he feels trapped. He loves his freedom to run and is very affectionate… He would welcome other pets in the house, as long as he is given adequate attention. He mixes well with adults as well as children. He loves being photographed…and pampered.
  • Gemini
    (May 22 – Jun 21)
    This is a pooch who gets bored easily and you need to have a variety of toys and activities to keep him happy and content. He loves being outdoors and running free. He is blessed with those large eyes that get him everything he wants from humans. He really knows how to make them work for him. He enjoys music and also loves being in a car or taxi…and likes to put his nose out of the window so he can take in all the aromas along the way. He does not like large families and is happy to be living with a couple or a single person.
  • Cancer
    (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
    He is a handsome pooch but very territorial and protective of his home. Everyone finds him cute and adorable, yet he has a true spirit of protecting his pet parents at any risk. He is also very protective of his home and all in it. He is a cherished pooch as he has this ability to make everyone feel happy and start laughing. He is happier with a light diet as he has a tendency to get indigestion and gastric troubles and you must watch his food.
  • Leo
    (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
    A Leo pooch is real king of the pack. He is gorgeous, sophisticated and will have a regal royal pose. He will show off to everyone around and love the attention. There is not enough compliments given to this dog, you need to shower them with love, affection, praise and make sure there is enough to go round all day long. They will command luxury items and show you their appreciation by doing tricks and playing around. They will just love to play around and make everyone laugh. A wonderful companion who loves children!
  • Virgo
    (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
    Well, this pooch is a very fussy and particular little one. You have a total perfectionist in your camp. They need a spotlessly clean environment and get irritated if things are out of place or messy. They are also very prone to a nervous nature and can be highly emotional and can get very upset if you for any reason are not hygienic. Make sure you take this one out on time, as he likes discipline and order. Do not forget to groom this little one’s paws and keep him in pristine condition, if not watch out.
  • Libra
    (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
    This little chap is very loyal and loving and wants everyone to be happy. Do not treat this one with any kind of disrespect or injustice as he will immediately bark at you. A very balanced pooch who loves people! He does not like being taken advantage of and want to be respected and treated with love. He will judge your character, and those of your friends and relatives. Be careful, he can get kidney troubles if not kept happy and balanced. If you need a pooch to help you with your love life, this is the one, he has a magnetic attraction, everyone finds him gorgeous…and has the appeal of a celeb.
  • Scorpio
    (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
    This little pooch is fiercely possessive and jealous to the core. Should you make the mistake and not show this canine your full attention you will be given the silent treatment. Once again you will have to make a fuss of him and give him a lot of attention, so that he will once again be your best buddy. This little boy is always looking for adventure and will get into things without you even noticing. He will melt your heart with his big angelic eyes. He will hate you raising your voice at him and, loves to sleep during the day and keeps you safe at night. He is a strong independent type, who wants an identical pet parent.
  • Sagittarius
    (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
    This little pooch loves to be free and is best suited to an outdoor country lifestyle. He likes to roam around and go on an adventurous trip. Never keep this canine in a confined space, he will bark constantly and be very unhappy. This is a dog who needs to be kept amused and happy…as boredom sets in, and then you will find a very unhappy boy. Always make sure you are loving and kind to this sign as he will not tolerate any kind of bad behaviour. This is a dog who lives life like a king, with dreams and happiness. Make sure you have enough space for this dog, as he will become ill if kept in a small area.
  • Capricorn
    (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
    If you have a dog of this sign, you will know he has the best taste in everything. He wants luxury, the best bed, the best lead and the best food. He is the corporate pooch of all the signs. Success and being at the top is what he wants. A very dedicated pooch who will adore you and give you his best always. You will notice that he will not mess in the house, and bark for no reason. This pooch has style and demands your respect. A pooch who prefers a male pet parent. A dog with true sophistication and style… A Gucci pup…!
  • Aquarius
    (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
    This pooch is a devoted and very loyal dog. He may seem a bit cold when you first meet, but you will soon notice he has a very genuine soul. A very adventurous boy who gets along with everyone. This is a pooch who needs a lovable quirky soul, who is a little eccentric. This is a canine who is very comfortable sitting by your side and just being next to you. Do not isolate this pup; he needs to be with a lot of people and other dogs. A dog who loves to watch animal programmes and the news… a dog with an old wise soul!
  • Pisces
    (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
    A very relaxed and chilled out pooch, who will not rush to wake you up. A dog who will do anything for you, just to make sure your life is easier and better. This is a pooch who is very in tune with what is going on and will always keep you safe and secure. A loving, caring, totally dedicated pooch who is also extremely alert and telepathic and truly psychic. A pooch who does not like to be ordered around and wants a true equal as a pet parent and looks upon you as his companion. He is not a dog who wants any kind of order. Chaos is what keeps this dog happy. A very sensitive and fragile dog who needs to be handled with love and care.
