They said that since there is no quarantine time known for rabies in bobcats, the Health Department made them euthanize the kitten so the head could be cut off and tested for rabies. Bobcats almost never contract rabies, and the women Read More

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.
