  • Pyothorax refers to the presence of inflammatory fluid or "pus" within the chest cavity, which is the area between the lungs and the inner walls of the ribs.

  • Pyrantel pamoate is an anthelmintic. Anthelmintics are used to treat infections with intestinal worms.

  • Pyrethrin insecticides are naturally derived from the chrysanthemum (“mum”) flower, and pyrethroids are the synthetic versions. The formulations of these products vary in concentration, synergists, and carriers depending on their intended use.

  • Pyridostigmine bromide is use for the treatment of myasthenia gravis. This disorder is characterized by muscular weakness. This medication inhibits the enzyme cholinesterase and allows weakened muscles to work better.

  • Each and every pet has certain needs that should be recognized and respected. Quality of life is a way to refer to and discuss the day-to-day life and lifestyle of a cat reaching the end of its life. If we can successfully meet an ailing or chronically ill cat’s basic needs, then we can feel confident that our efforts in preserving life are justified.

  • Rabies is a viral disease that can infect all warm-blooded animals, including cats and people, although some species are somewhat naturally resistant to the disease. When signs of rabies occur, it is an almost invariably fatal disease.

  • One of the most common and useful medical diagnostic procedures is radiography or x-rays. The term x-rays originates from 1895 when the German physicist Wilhelm Röntgen discovered the technique. Since he was unsure what exactly was producing the image on his plates, he titled his paper "On a New Kind of Rays" and the term "x"-rays was substituted for "unknown rays."

  • Ranitidine is a histamine-blocking agent. It helps reduce the amount of gastric acid secreted in the stomach and helps protect the stomach against the formation of ulcers. It has also been used to treat gastritis and other reflux and hypersecretory conditions. Ranitidine may be used to stimulate contractions of the stomach.

  • The histiocyte group of cells are part of the body’s immune surveillance system. They take up and process foreign antigens, such as pollens and microorganisms.

  • Although cats are predators, in nature larger predators will prey upon them. Since sick or old animals make an easy target, any obvious sign of illness will alert other predators that the animal is ill. Therefore, cats have evolved to hide signs of illness.
