Filed under: Cats care — Tags: , , , , , — Cynara @ 3:02 pm

Cancer is a common disease in cats, just as in other domestic species and in human beings. 
However, nor all of the tumors are treatable with chemotherapy and all patient it should be considered as an individual in the evaluation of the appropriate treatment. 
Some cytotoxics drugs  used in dogs and human beings are not appropriate for cats and many if they will turn anorexic during the chemotherapy. 
Most of the tumors appears starting from the neoplam transformation of a single stem cell. 
The growth fraction constitutes the most important factor than it determines the answer of a tumor to the chemotherapy, because most of the cytotoxics drugs  is active just against cells in growth and in division. 
Initially, the tumors are composed of a group of cells reasonably homogeneous, but with successive cellular divisions, genetic mutations that check properties different phenotypic in the cell-daughters happening. 
Some tumors are resistant intrisically to the chemotherapy; for instance, many carcinomas and the  malignant melonoma. Big tumors and of slow growth also healthy relatively resistant, because of the fraction of low growth.

The incredible sensibility of the animals

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , — Cynara @ 12:12 pm

Several studious for the whole world, they dive in the fascinating world of the animal sensibility. Researchers like Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, writer and English biologist and the Italian researchers S. Apuzzo and Ambrosio M. that tell incredible cases of the perception that the animals have of diseases, events and earth tremors in their books before the same ones happen. 
All the animals, some species more particularly, possess perception capacities that overcome in a lot to those human ones, the such point that their facts, observed a numberless of times, in all of the times and places, they do with that they get confused and get lost the limits between the science and the magic.  

In the last decades, the famous scientist Rupert Sheldrake researched the compound universe of the strangers perceptions of the animals and he built to respect an unitary theory told in his book Dogs that know their owners plows coming home (Dogs that know that their owners are arriving home). 
In the healthy book presented several relative testimonies to prodigious events that have as animal protagonists capable to notice things that the man doesn’t get.  

A study peculiar of Sheldrake is dedicated to the telepathy. 
The word means approximately to “notice from a distance” and, in the cases told in the book, situations are described in the ones which, for instance, cats foresaw the return in advance to the own owner’s house, some danger situation to him related or, more simply, they captured with the thought a call the owner’s distance, without there was any possibility to hear him with the physical ears. 
Sheldrake speaks about that in his book, examining cases of dogs, cats, horses and birds that get to return to his home, little the immense distance that seemed to turn the fact mattering practically impossible.  
Everything happens as if the animals had a magnetic map in the head, a “radar” working the whole time, capable to drive their steps in critical situations. A type of biological GPS. 
They also exist capacities peculiar of the animals that, besides leaving us amazed, they can in the very useful being.  
For instance, some dogs foresee the epileptic attacks  in the people, studied capacity and demonstrated in study driven by neurologist Adam Kirton, of Children’s Hospital, of Alberta, Canada, in 2004.  
The study, accomplished with 60 dogs, it demonstrated that 15% of them are quite necessary in the forecast of a epileptc crisis epileptc of the own owner, without training need.  

For some scientists, that probably drift of the smell capacity that the animals possess: before an epileptic attack, the human body could suffer physiologic alterations that would take to changes in the sudorese and in the chemical composition of the perspiration, modifications that the dogs would get to notice, or better, to smell. 

The more acquaintance paranormal capacity of the animals is, without a doubt, the one of foreseeing earthquakes and other important geological cataclysms.  

In 2004, hours before the tsunami that devastated the coast of several Asian countries, elephants in the proximities of beaches in Indonesia and in Sri Lanka they began to manifest signs of great inquietude.  

Several they tore the currents that arrested them and they fled for the high of hills, as that foreseeing that the areas were about the they be flooded. 
Another work on the theme, Anche gli animali vanno in paradiso (The animals also space to the paradise), of the Italian researchers S. Apuzzo and Ambrosio M. (Edizioni Mediterranee), he tells many surprising and inexplicable episodes.  

In the chapter about experiences driven at laboratory and destined to prove that some animals notice the events sharply even when they are impeded of using their normal senses, he narrates himself the history of a dog boxer that was linked the an electrocardiograph in a room to the sound proof, while his lady met in another room. 

Without the woman was informed, a strange individual invaded the room and it began to insult her and to threaten her of physical aggression.  

The woman was really afraid, and her dog, locked at the other room, she seemed to notice that her lady was in danger. The boxer entered in agitation and his heart rhythm arose violently.  
Reality or magic, the fact is that the animal physiology is very different from ours, some the sense of smell extremely superiors, other the visual capacity for colors and much more necessary movements than the human and still some that hear sounds that a human being would never distinguish. All this does with that the wealth of the animal world every time is one more reason of curiosity and study for the man.
