Would you even know if your cat became infected? Can infection with the parasite have health consequences?  Find out in Dr Guillermo Díaz's Read More

Angie Bobcat Angie bobcat was taken to Ehrlich Animal Hospital.   http://youtu.be/_56xRmENFCM     She had been making a weird chewing sound and keepers thought she may have a broken tooth. Her teeth seemed ok, however there were some ulcers in the back of her mouth that a few of her back molars were rubbing. Those molars may have caused the ulcers and so they were removed. Her ulcers could have also been caused by her advanced kidney disease. Her blood results came back far worse than they had Read More

This bobcat appeared at my friends front porch at 6 pm on July 4 th and then proceeded to walk across the street into the conservation area. She did note that he was holding up his left rear leg. We are wondering if the bobcat could be the cause to the 4 missing cats in our neighborhood. We live in XXXX Pasco Read More

Max

Max Male Bobcat DOB:  8/1/10 Rescued: 5/31/2011 TAMPA - Big Cat Rescue staffers flew into town Tuesday with a 9-month-old bobcat kitten rescued from Rhode Island. The kitten was at the center of a months-long legal battle that touched off after a Rhode Island vet seized him from someone who bought him from a backyard breeder. It is illegal to have bobcats as pets in Rhode Island. The cat's owner went to court to get the cat back, but the state won. Now the bobcat will live at Big Cat Rescue for the rest of his life.
