Pet Vet: Cat scratch fever: Why Beemer is losing his hair

Terry from Modesto takes care of Beemer, a 6-year-old cat that spends most of his time in the house. Terry works from home, spending a lot of time with Beemer, and has noticed over the past couple of weeks that he has developed some hair loss along his back. His skin in the area also feels bumpy when Terry pets Beemer. He is apparently healthy in every other respect with no change in his appetite or activity and he is as playful as ever.

Adopt a pet (April 1, 2017)

Darby, a 3-year-old male Cairn terrier mix, is available for adoption from Pals Animal Rescue. He is a fun-loving, tender-hearted and loyal guy whose goal in life is to please his owners and be loved by them. He has a wonderful personality with a quirkiness that warms your heart. He gets along great with kids, adults and other dogs. Some dogs are domineering to him because he is so submissive. He is on special food and would do best with a doggy door. Whoever ends up with this fur baby will be blessed with a devoted lifelong companion. See Darby and other Pals dogs from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 1, at PetSmart, 3615 N. Rock Road.
