[BLOG] #QuickFact : The Answer Might Be In The Bladder

🇫🇷 Lire en Français Ici 

I was writing an article recently on reproduction in the male cat.  

And it reminded me of a #QuickFact that you guys cat breeders would be interested in.  

We already touched on how difficult semen collection and evaluation is in the feline species.  

You can read my previous post on this here

There is however a quick and simple way to evaluate if a cat produces sperm.  

The answer is in its bladder.  

No, I’m not kidding ! 

In male cats in fact, nearly 50% of the volume of the ejaculate will end up in the bladder during ejaculation. 

We call this retrograde ejaculation.  

And you now understand that in male cats, it is quite common.  

If you check the male cat’s urine after breeding, that will help answer the question if this male produces sperm or not.  

It is not as good as a full spermogram, for sure.  

But it is still a valuable clinical information. 

That’s the #QuickFact I wanted to share with you today on cat reproduction. 

[BLOG] Remember this when it comes to calcium and growing puppies !

Blog CA ENG

🇫🇷 Lire en Français ici

Every day, around forty nutrients should be provided in the dogs’ food. There should be enough of each nutrient [more than a minimum threshold] for the body to work at its best. However, is it beneficial to the health to have too much of any one nutrient? This is far from being certain, particularly considering that ALL nutrients are potentially toxic over a certain maximum limit which is specific to each one.

It is therefore unnecessary and even dangerous to add mineral and/or vitamin supplements if growing dogs are fed with a balanced commercial food.

[YOUTUBE] Dos and Dont’s on Parturition in Queens

🇫🇷 Lire en Français ici

I very often get questions on birthing in queens.

Nothing abnormal here : no doubt it can be a stressful moment.

Indeed, hard to predict with certainty what is going to happen when multiple kittens are expected !

As cat breeders, what should you do ? What should you NOT do ?

This is why we decided to give this webinar on parturition in queens.

Cat breeders from 12 different countries attended.

One thing I can tell you for sure : we had a very good online discussion !

If you missed it,  don’t you worry, you can still watch the replay, the video is right below !

And if you have stories / anecdotes / questions, post them in the comment section below !

I’m looking forward to reading them !
