  • Trimeprazine-Prednisolone is used to treat itching in pets, especially if due to an allergy. The combination may also be used to suppress a cough.

  • Tropicamide is used to dilate the pupil. This medication may be used to reduce pain after cataract surgery or eye injury. Tropicamide may also be used to dilate the eye for diagnostic purposes.

  • Trypsinogen is a proenzyme (a non-activated enzyme) that is secreted into the small intestine by the pancreas, along with other pancreatic digestive enzymes. When it reaches the small intestine, trypsinogen is converted to trypsin, an enzyme that is involved in the digestion of proteins.

  • TTouch is a form of touch therapy devised and popularized in 1978 by Linda Tellington Jones, an equestrian with a long-standing interest in massage, training, and physical therapy techniques. TTouch is a very simple light massage technique, in which a clockwise circular motion of the fingers is used on the skin of the patient.

  • Tube feeding is an alternative way of providing nutrition to a cat that is suffering from anorexia or has some anatomical or surgical condition that prevents it from eating normally.

  • An esophagostomy tube is a small rubber tube that enters the esophagus through a surgical incision on the side of the neck. This allows food you to place food directly into the esophagus so that it can flow down into the stomach. The feeding tube is not placed directly into the stomach.

  • Tularemia is a bacterial disease caused by Francisella tularensis and is often referred to as “rabbit fever.” It is an uncommon infection in cats, but cats can be exposed if they kill and/or eat an infected rabbit or rodent.

  • Tylosin is a macrolide antibiotic similar to erythromycin. It is active against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, spirochetes, Chlamydophila and Mycoplasma organisms. Tylosin is usually used to treat certain types of diarrhea in dogs and cats. It may also be used to treat bronchitis, tracheobronchitis, laryngitis, tonsillitis, pneumonia, rhinitis, sinusitis, cellulitis, ear infections, inflammation of the urinary bladder, inflammation of the uterus, inflammation of the endometrium, and inflammation of the skin.

  • The tympanic membrane or “eardrum” is a thin membrane that separates the outer ear canal from the middle and inner ear. The middle ear contains the three tiniest bones in the body, the malleus, incus and stapes, more commonly referred to as the “hammer, anvil and stirrup.” The Eustachian tubes are also located in the middle ear. If the eardrum is perforated or tears, bacteria and fungi from the outer ear canal may enter the sensitive middle ear resulting in middle ear infection (otitis media).

  • Ulcerative keratitis is a type of inflammation that occurs in the cornea of the eye. It is most commonly associated with the surface layer- the corneal epithelium- causing an erosion of the surface tissue.
