Today I am going to review two articles, but first I have to make sure that you are all aware that there is a vitamin recall! The Hartz company has recalled 739 bottles of Hartz Vitamin Care for Cats due to a possible contamination with salmonella. The bottles that are being recalled have the lot number of No. SZ 22771. It is very important that if you have a bottle with this lot number to have your human discard it and to report any sudden illnesses to your V E T.
Now I have a very happy article to report to you! The article is titled, "Kitten Survives Trip in Shipping Crate."
The next article is one that has ignited much hope in my purring little heart. "Imulan Working on Treatment for Feline Lukemia." Vet Craig Woods has formed a company called TR Biosurgical LLC, and his company researches tissue-regenerating technology. He has formed a partnership with Imulan Biotherepeutics company which currently researches and creates treatments for kitty illnesses. Woods' company has created a second partnership with T-Cyte Therapeutics who are currently researching and developing a new class of proteins that control stem cell functions. "These proteins enable animals to use their own adult stem cells to repair damaged or diseased tissue." Together these three companies are trying to develop a treatment for feline leukemia!!!
YAY! Let us cross our paws and purr that this will happen very soon!
PS- Tomorrow I have a surprise! I am going to introduce you to someone very special to me!
