Cryptococcus Fungi: The Cause of Cryptococcosis
 
03:14
Cryptococcosis is the disease caused by the fungus known as Cryptococcus. Cryptococcus is a type of fungus that is found in the soil, usually in association with bird droppings. The major species of Cryptococcus that causes illness in human is Cryptococcus neoformans, which is found worldwide. Another less common species that can also cause disease in humans is Cryptococcus gattii. Since 1999, C. gattii has also been found in regions of the Pacific Northwest, particularly in Vancouver Island in British Columbia, and Oregon and Washington in the United States.

Street Cat with Severely Fungal Meowing Ask for Food and Finally Getting Health
 
02:00
A poor street cat was found meowing out at side of the street asking for food with severely facial swelling. She is really suffered with this infection and has been ignored from everyone to help. It’s lucky that animal lovers met her and picked up to a vet for treatment. She has severely fungal disease or Cryptococcosis and can be spreading to the brain. She underwent long time of treatment with good medication and many contributed for her medical bills to bring her health. Finally, she’s getting full recovered and the facial swelling is gone. It’s very heart touching, we thank all kind people that involved bringing her new chance at life with truly of love. Courtesy: โชติ บก

Pudge doesn't like any of the cat treats I've tried buying for her, but she does really enjoy snacking on coconut oil. She comes running at the sight of the jar or as soon as she hears me open it. She'll stand up on her back feet and reach out for the coconut oil with her paw.

Cryptococcus Thriving on Vancouver Island
 
02:58
VICTORIA - When health warning signs first went up in Parksville's Rathtrevor Park, fears of a toxic fungus swept Vancouver Island. More than 10 yeras after Cryptococcus Gattii showed up in island fir trees, researchers at the University of Calgary say they've mad an important discovery which could lead to better treatment of Cryptococcus disease. The illness is a rare but deadly infection. It begins a pneumonia, but spreads to the brain causing meningitis. Until now, little was known about how the fungus leaves the bloodstream and enters the brain."What we discovered is how it gets to the brain, why it stops in the brain...and then we used a drug to block that process," says Dr. Christopher Mody, a researcher at Calgary's Snyder Institute of Infection, Inflammation and Immunity. Doctors say this key observation could lead to better treatment.Testing was done on a mouse using a drug already approved for other medical uses. The findings are published in this months Journal of Clinical Investigations. Since 1999, 270 people in BC have become ill from breathing the fungus in. Most cases have been traced to Vancouver island. That makes the island number 3 in the world for the infection. The BC Centre for Disease control notes that up until 12 years ago, when Cryptococcus first appeared on Vancouver Island, the fungus was only found in tropical places. Why it took hold on the island, scientists don't know. What they do know is that Cryptococcus is spreading. It's now on the lower mainland, through Washington State and Oregon. Doctors stress Cryptococcus disease is rare but does kill between 10 and 25% of infected people. Researchers hope to perform clinical trials of the drug in the next 12 to 24 months.

Cat falling over, losing balance (new video) (neurologic disease)
 
01:27
This is recent video (March 2014) of my 5-year old cat losing his balance from undiagnosed neurologic disease. The videos referenced below are from late 2013, so you can see the progression of the disease. His balance is getting worse and worse, but he doesn't seem to be in pain, his appetite is normal, and he still likes to play. And as you can see, he gets up and keeps going each time he falls. He's a fighter! *********** My 5-year old cat Churro is suffering from an undiagnosed degenerative neurologic disease. He started developing balance problems when he was only 2 ½ years old by miscalculating distances when he tried to jump. At 3 ½ years, he was losing his ability to jump at all; his gait started to change into a high-stepped, deliberate gait; and he was having a harder time coordinating his steps to run. He also started having periodic seizures where his body would freeze up for several seconds (I call these episodes "seizures" for lack of another word, but the vets tell me they're not seizures because his body isn't convulsing, he isn't foaming at the mouth, etc.) These symptoms kept progressing, and now at 5 years old, he: • Can't run or jump at all; • Falls over when he walks (see other video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KTy5GTH_OI&feature=youtu.be); • Has difficulty walking and controlling his legs (it's like he's losing the ability to control where his legs go and his back legs are atrophying); • Is losing the ability to perceive distance because his nose bumps into things when he sniffs them; • Has a hard time focusing and his head will bob a little bit sometimes when he's trying to focus (you can see a little bit of his head bob in THIS VIDEO at 18 seconds); And look how his body wobbles when he walks between the couch and the wall in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxK9S7pHUDg&feature=youtu.be; • Has seizure episodes where his whole body tenses up, his legs stick straight out, his head pulls back, and his eye go wide and blank for about 5-10 seconds. His whole body turns rock solid and every muscle tenses up. Here is a seizure caught on video (but it's slightly blurry: http://youtu.be/wpV-FchJxeA). There is also a slight example of his body freezing up in this video at 16 seconds(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svnlg2SJo6Q); • Drops his head straight down to the ground after he looks up or backwards, and when he's coming out of his seizures. (you can see an example of his head dropping down to the ground after looking backwards at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNEMBY3feMY); and • Muscles twitch a lot when he's lying down (see this video at 3, 8, 18, 21, and 27 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf0ywEMkZxQ). Despite all of this, Churro is still the same ornery and fun-loving cat he has always been, which is why it's so incredibly sad and painful to watch him deteriorate from this undiagnosed neurologic disease. TREATMENT: Churro has been to three different neurologists (one at a vet school), and several internists to try to figure out what's going on. He's had a slew of tests and has been on every antibiotic imaginable in case it was a brain infection, but the tests were inconclusive and no drugs helped him. The final diagnosis was simply that he has degenerative brain disease (degenerative cerebellar abiotrophy?). I'd be really interested to see if anyone has any thoughts or ideas. TESTS/PROCEDURES: 1. Ear infection (April '12): treated and cured w/ DMSO drops. 2. CT scan (May '12) showed large mass in left nasal sinus and septum deviated to right. 3. Rhinoscopy (May '12) to clear out mass. Biopsy showed chronic rhinitis. 4. Cryptococcus test: normal 5. Toxoplasmosis test: normal 6. Thyroid test: normal 7. UPenn genetic testing: normal 8. MRI and CSF Spinal tap (August 8th, 2012): Brain normal, fluid normal. ANTIBIOTICS/DRUGS: Zeniquen, Chloramphenicol, Cefpodoxime, Levofloxacin, Doxycycline, Clindamycin, SMZ/TMP (sulfa-methoxazole trimethoprim), prednisone.

Petting Brie
 
01:19
Who loves pets? Brie loves pets! This lovely long haired Tuxedo girl is super affectionate and thinks that people and pets are the best thing in the world. # # # Seeking a good heart! Brie is in search of a good hearted person to foster her. You see, Brie has Cryptococcosis an infection caused by the yeast like fungus Cryptococcus which is widespread in the environment. Cryptococcosis is most common in cats but is also seen in dogs, cattle, horses, sheep, goats, birds, and wild animals. Brie has the fungus on her nose and has to be given one pill a day to fight it. She may be on this medication for anywhere from three months to a year. It just depends on how her body responds and heals. You would never know there was anything amiss with this gorgeous girl. Brie is extremely friendly and affectionate, rolling on her back for tummy rubs and swishing her huge tail in thanks for the attention. While the condition is technically “contagious,” only animals or people with weakened immune systems need be concerned about contracting the fungus. This may include the very young, the very old, those infected with HIV, persons with known illnesses, those under severe stress and those receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Ideally Brie should be fostered in a home without other animals so her stress level can be kept to a minimum. At the shelter, the noise, other animals, constant foot traffic and periods without human contact add to her stress which negatively affects her immune system thus making it harder for her to recover quickly. By fostering Brie and helping her to recovery, you will be an integral part of moving her to our Adorable Adoptables list so she can find her forever home. Please note that PAWS will be responsible for all of her medical expenses. We can also provide you and Brie with food and other supplies. If you are interested in fostering Brie, please complete the Cat Foster Application. If you have any questions, please contact the Cat Adoption Team online or call Bob at 619-840-9727.

Cat having seizure (neurologic disease)
 
01:19
Here is video of my 5-year old cat, Churro, having a seizure (or muscle spasm?). See his legs sticking straight out, trembling from his muscles tensed rock solid, his head strained backwards. The episode lasted until he's placed down on the floor. These episodes have been getting steadily worse over the last year or so, as his neurologic disease progresses. Sorry the video starts out blurry! *********** My 5-year old cat Churro is suffering from an undiagnosed degenerative neurologic disease. He started developing balance problems when he was only 2 ½ years old by miscalculating distances when he tried to jump. At 3 ½ years, he was losing his ability to jump at all; his gait started to change into a high-stepped, deliberate gait; and he was having a harder time coordinating his steps to run. He also started having periodic seizures where his body would freeze up for several seconds (I call these episodes "seizures" for lack of another word, but the vets tell me they're not seizures because his body isn't convulsing, he isn't foaming at the mouth, etc.) These symptoms kept progressing, and now at 5 years old, he: • Can't run or jump at all; • Falls over when he walks (see videos at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIx7YJRxqCk; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KTy5GTH_OI&feature=youtu.be); • Has difficulty walking and controlling his legs (it's like he's losing the ability to control where his legs go and his back legs are atrophying); • Is losing the ability to perceive distance because his nose bumps into things when he sniffs them; • Has a hard time focusing and his head will bob a little bit sometimes when he's trying to focus (you can see a little bit of his head bob in THIS VIDEO at 18 seconds); And look how his body wobbles when he walks between the couch and the wall in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxK9S7pHUDg&feature=youtu.be; • Has seizure episodes where his whole body tenses up, his legs stick straight out, his head pulls back, and his eye go wide and blank for about 5-10 seconds. His whole body turns rock solid and every muscle tenses up. This is in this video, and also there is a slight example of his body freezing up in this video at 16 seconds(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svnlg2SJo6Q), but I haven't caught the full-body seizure on video; • Drops his head straight down to the ground after he looks up or backwards, and when he's coming out of his seizures. (you can see an example of his head dropping down to the ground after looking backwards at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNEMBY3feMY); and • Muscles twitch a lot when he's lying down (see this video at 3, 8, 18, 21, and 27 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf0ywEMkZxQ).

10 diseases can be caused by animals to human.1, Anthrax: Anthrax is an infection caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. It can occur in four forms: skin, lungs, intestinal, and injection, Symptoms begin between one day and two months after the infection is contracted.2, Australian bat lyssavirus;Australian bat lyssavirus is a zoonotic virus closely related to rabies virus. It was first identified in a 5-month-old juvenile black flying fox (Pteropus alecto) collected near Ballina in northern New South Wales. 3, Brucellosis : Brucellosis is a highly contagious zoonosis caused by ingestion of unpasteurized milk or undercooked meat from infected animals, or close contact with their secretions.4,Cryptococcosis: Cryptococcosis, also known as cryptococcal disease, is a potentially fatal fungal disease. It is caused by one of two species; Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii.5 Giardiasis: Giardiasis is an infection in your small intestine. It's caused by a microscopic parasite called Giardia lamblia.6 Hydatid disease: Hydatid disease is a parasitic infestation by a tapeworm of the genus Echinococcus.7 Tetanus: Tetanus is caused by an infection with the bacterium Clostridium tetani, which is commonly found in soil, saliva, dust, and manure.8, Q fever: Q fever is a zoonosis caused by Coxiella burnetii, an obligate gram-negative intracellular bacterium. Cattle, sheep, and goats are the primary reservoirs for this disease. 9,Toxoplasmosis. 10 : elephantiasis : Lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis, is a human disease caused by parasitic worms known as filarial worms. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "How To Tight Vagina | Vaginal Tightening | Biology terms | Aloe vera" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6LIpKvXAUA -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Images under licence cc : www.pexels.com www.flickr.com commons.wikimedia.org pixabay.com

This video shows my 5-year old cat with degenerative neurologic disease twitching when he lays down (at .3, .8, .18, .21, and .27 seconds in this video - though it's kind of hard to see in this video). My 5-year old cat Churro is suffering from an undiagnosed degenerative neurologic disease. He started developing balance problems when he was only 2 ½ years old by miscalculating distances when he tried to jump. At 3 ½ years, he was losing his ability to jump at all; his gait started to change into a high-stepped, deliberate gait; and he was having a harder time coordinating his steps to run. He also started having periodic seizures where his body would freeze up for several seconds (I call these episodes "seizures" for lack of another word, but the vets tell me they're not seizures because his body isn't convulsing, he isn't foaming at the mouth, etc.) These symptoms kept progressing, and now at 5 years old, he: • Can't run or jump at all; • Falls over when he walks (see videos at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIx7YJRxqCk; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KTy5GTH_OI&feature=youtu.be); • Has difficulty walking and controlling his legs (it's like he's losing the ability to control where his legs go and his back legs are atrophying); • Is losing the ability to perceive distance because his nose bumps into things when he sniffs them; • Has a hard time focusing and his head will bob a little bit sometimes when he's trying to focus (you can see a little bit of his head bob in this video at 18 seconds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=metywqDtjkA&feature=youtu.be); And look how his body wobbles when he walks between the couch and the wall in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxK9S7pHUDg&feature=youtu.be; • Has seizure episodes where his whole body tenses up, his legs stick straight out, his head pulls back, and his eye go wide and blank for about 5-10 seconds. His whole body turns rock solid and every muscle tenses up. Here is a seizure caught on video (but it's slightly blurry: http://youtu.be/wpV-FchJxeA). There is also a slight example of his body freezing up in this video at 16 seconds(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svnlg2SJo6Q); • Drops his head straight down to the ground after he looks up or backwards, and when he's coming out of his seizures (you can see an example of his head dropping down to the ground after looking backwards at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNEMBY3feMY); and • Muscles twitch a lot when he's lying down (see THIS VIDEO at 3, 8, 18, 21, and 27 seconds). Despite all of this, Churro is still the same ornery and fun-loving cat he has always been, which is why it's so incredibly sad and painful to watch him deteriorate from this undiagnosed neurologic disease. TREATMENT: Churro has been to three different neurologists (one at a vet school), and several internists to try to figure out what's going on. He's had a slew of tests and has been on every antibiotic imaginable in case it was a brain infection, but the tests were inconclusive and no drugs helped him. The final diagnosis was simply that he has degenerative brain disease (degenerative cerebellar abiotrophy?). I'd be really interested to see if anyone has any thoughts or ideas. TESTS/PROCEDURES: 1. Ear infection (April '12): treated and cured w/ DMSO drops. 2. CT scan (May '12) showed large mass in left nasal sinus and septum deviated to right. 3. Rhinoscopy (May '12) to clear out mass. Biopsy showed chronic rhinitis. 4. Cryptococcus test: normal 5. Toxoplasmosis test: normal 6. Thyroid test: normal 7. UPenn genetic testing: normal 8. MRI and CSF Spinal tap (August 8th, 2012): Brain normal, fluid normal. ANTIBIOTICS/DRUGS: Zeniquen, Chloramphenicol, Cefpodoxime, Levofloxacin, Doxycycline, Clindamycin, SMZ/TMP (sulfa-methoxazole trimethoprim), prednisone.

UPDATE VIDEO for Mr. Sniffles!
 
02:29
Meet, Mr. Sniffles, who was discovered in a feral colony in North Hollywood. The area is a congested, industrial neighborhood... lined with busy garages and warehouses that manufacture tile, paint products and automotive parts. God knows where these poor creatures hide during the day or find shelter from the elements. There's not much "green space". Instead, their environment consists of broken glass, toxic chemicals, wooden pallets, debris, dumpsters, and large, commercial vehicles and trucks. My friend, Jade Katona, has been feeding at this location for a couple of years and I've often accompanied her so I could trap the ones that needed to be spayed/neutered or required medical attention. Mr. Sniffles started coming out to eat from behind a gated alley and we immediately knew something wasn't right. He appeared to have a lump on his head, between his eyes, which was beginning to distort his features. We could also hear his labored breathing. I knew we needed to get him examined by a vet and made a plan to trap him. He was first taken to FixNation where he was neutered, vaccinated, and given a topical flea medication. The veterinary staff examined him (standard protocol for the clinic). Their basic diagnosis was that he had some kind of mass in his nasal cavity, which was beginning to cause facial deformity and restricting the air flow through his nose. Since this particular clinic focuses, mainly, on sterilizing community cats, it was recommended I take him to another veterinary practice for further assessment. Many, within the rescue community, began weighing in and some recommended, since he's a "feral" - that he be humanely euthanized. As you can see, by the video, he "was" a feral cat... in the beginning. But since he's been in captivity and been handled often for exams, he's not only become tame... but an extremely affectionate and social fella who LOVES to get scruffs around his head, face and neck! He's also become quite chatty. Mr. Sniffles also has a constant, nasal drip (hence his name!) and when he sneezes or shakes his head, green mucous flies through the air, splattering on the walls and floors, covering everything in his surroundings. I quickly realized his food bowl needed to be shallow because the kibble beneath would get saturated within a day or two, and go to waste. His food/water dishes and entire enclosure must be cleaned regularly... and most items need a good soaking in hot, soapy water. Does it gross me out? No. Does he have a funky smell? Yes. But all you have to do is meet Mr. Sniffles and experience him looking directly in to your eyes - as if he's saying, "I want to LIVE!" - and you'll feel how strong of a life force he possesses! And he's still enjoying the simple things in life... like his nightly bowl of wet food, getting brushed, hangin' out in his hammock or just being in the company of us human types. Typically, cats will lose their appetite if they can't smell. Although his nostrils are extremely constricted, he's still able to breathe through his nose. We're worried he may go downhill if his nose becomes completely blocked. Back to the medical stuff... We have since taken him to three, different veterinarians for further assessment and lab work. The first test conducted was for Cryptococcus (a fungal infection spread by bird droppings) and the results were negative. He's also had a full blood panel run... ruling out FIV/FeLV and other illnesses. According to Dr. Sunada (North Hollywood Animal Care Center), some of his protein(?) levels were elevated which could be consistent with what we may find in an animal fighting cancer. But she also noted that we cannot possibly diagnose him without conducting a biopsy and a MRI. Unfortunately, the growth is behind solid bone and there's no way to get a needle in to the target area. Dr. Sunada recommends he be taken to a specialist for facial surgery... in order for a biopsy to be done. After phoning multiple clinics, researching the costs of such a procedure, we realized it is just beyond our financial means. This is why we NEED YOUR HELP!!! Please... won't you help us help Mr. Sniffles?!! Time is of the essence because his condition is only worsening with time. You can find additional photos and updates on Mr. Sniffles on our Face book page: "Save The Leadwell Kitties". Just search the albums and he's in the one entitled, "Rhae's Rescue Cats #11 of 13". And we thank you, so deeply, from the bottom of our hearts. *Please be sure to follow the latest update on Mr. Sniffles on his GoFundMe campaign at gofundme.com/helpmr-sniffles. Thanks!
