*  Bird fancier's lung - Wikipedia
Bird fancier's lung is a type of hypersensitivity pneumonitis caused by bird droppings. The lungs become inflamed with granuloma formation. Bird fancier's lung (BFL), also called bird-breeder's lung and pigeon-breeder's lung, is a subset of hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP). This disease is caused by the exposure to avian proteins present in the dry dust of the droppings and sometimes in the feathers of a variety of birds. Birds such as pigeons, parakeets, cockatiels, shell parakeets (budgerigars), parrots, turtle doves, turkeys and chickens have been implicated. People who work with birds or own many birds are at risk. Bird hobbyists and pet store workers may also be at risk. This disease is an inflammation of the alveoli in the lungs. Initial symptoms are breathlessness especially after sudden exertion or when exposed to temperature change and can be very similar to asthma, hyperventilation syndrome or pulmonary embolism. One of the defining characteristics of bird fanciers lung is that many ...

*  Snowshoe Cat Breed Profile
The Snowshoe, which has a Siamese point pattern with very precise white markings, presents an extreme challenge for breeders.. The Snowshoe breed was established by Dorothy Hinds-Daugherty and further developed by Vikki Olander, using Siamese and bicolour American Shorthair cats. This combination produced kittens with the typical darker Siamese markings on their faces, ears, legs, and tail, but also snowy white boots and mittens, and an inverted white V on the face.. The Snowshoe was initially accepted as an experimental breed by the American Cat Association (ACA) and the Cat Fanciers Federation (CFF) in 1974, but there was little interest at the time and Olander remained the only U.S. breeder for several years. The Snowshoe had nearly become extinct by the time other breeders eventually took an interest in the breed.. The Snowshoe breed has now been accepted for Championship status by most major cat organizations, including the Cat Fanciers Federation, the American Cat ...

Amylase An enzyme that is found in saliva and pancreatic secretions (see pancreas). Amylase helps the body to digest dietary starch, breaking it down into smaller components, such as the sugars glucose and maltose. Amsler chart A diagnostic tool used by ophthalmologists to detect changes in the retina, particularly those changes that indicate macular degeneration. A typical Amsler chart consists of a grid of black lines on a white background. In an individual with retinal changes, the lines may appear distorted. CAUSES Alveolitis is commonly caused by an allergic reaction to inhaled dust of animal or plant origin, as in farmer's lung (caused by spores from mouldy hay), bagassosis (caused by spores from mouldy sugar-cane residue), and pigeon fancier's lung (caused by particles from bird droppings). This type of alveolitis is known as extrinsic allergic alveolitis. alprostadil A prostaglandin drug used to minimize the effects of congenital (present from birth) heart defects in newborn babies prior ...

Stresses such as overcrowding, shipping to pet shops can activate the disease. Both forms of the disease are spread by direct contact, infectious nasal droplets and faeces. Organisms found in every organ of the infected bird. The birds have diarrhoea and mucopurulent discharge from the nose and mouth. Humans usually acquire the disease from birds. Poultry workers, pet-shop owners, bird fanciers, veterinarians are susceptible. Organisms are inhaled and spread systemically to the lungs and reticuloendothelial system. After an incubation time of 1-2 weeks, onset of symptoms with sore throat, coughing, difficulty in breathing, head ache, fever and chills. ...

*  Skin tests in bird breeder's disease. | Thorax
The diagnostic value of skin tests was assessed in 35 patients affected by bird breeder's disease by comparing the results with those obtained in a group of 27 symptomless breeders and 10 symptomless unexposed individuals. Sterilised and diluted serum and lyophilised extracts of faeces prepared from the breeder's own birds were injected intradermally. Skinprick tests using the same materials were carried out simultaneously. The intradermal test using serum showed a positive reaction in 18 out of 20 patients tested and in three out of 20 symptomless breeders (p less than 0.0005); later reactions occurred in eight of the patients and one of the symptomless breeders (p less than 0.01). A delayed reaction was seen in five of the patients and one of the symptomless breeders (p = 0.09). No positive reactions were recorded in symptomless unexposed individuals. Intradermal skin testing using extracts of faeces yielded an immediate reaction in 19 of ...

*  The ferret fancier: October 2013
Although the rotator cuff tendons are the most common 'source' of shoulder pain, damage to any structure may result in pain development, other common sources being the glenohumeral joint and capsule, the labrum, the acromioclavicular joint and the cervical spine. It can be incredibly difficult and sometimes impossible to pin point the exact 'source' of pain using history, examination and radiological investigations for a wide variety of complex reasons. The more a patient is highly 'centrally sensitised' the more difficult it can be to reach a specific diagnosis, this may be demonstrated by clinical features such as pain radiating all the way down the arm and tenderness to palpation over a wide area. It is important to realise that highly centralised patients may have a very treatable peripheral pathology in isolation, but is also vital to think of nerve entrapment in the cervical spine as part of one's differential diagnosis ...

Ann Storey MSc. FIBMS, 1998. Infectious respiratory disease of rats and mice is the bane of their owners, be they scientist, fancier or pet keeper. It is the most common form of ill health in these animals and has many names. Traditionally fanciers have called it snuffles or asthma.. There are several infections that can cause it, both bacterial and viral but the commonest cause in adult rats and mice is Mycoplasma pulmonis.. There has been a mountain of research done on Mycoplasma infections in rats and mice because it is an economically important disease. Whatever you may think about the use of these animals in research, the fact remains that it is a multimillion pound industry and the modern quality assurance schemes have made research into anything that might interfere with results necessary. As far as possible I have sifted through the relevant research to present this overview on the current state of play. For those who are not interested in the science I suggest you skip to the ...

*  Thoughts in a Haystack: Counting Noses
I have lately been corresponding with Lyell, who, I think, adopts your idea of the stream of variation having been led or designed. I have asked him (and he says he will hereafter reflect and answer me) whether he believes that the shape of my nose was designed. If he does I have nothing more to say. If not, seeing what Fanciers have done by selecting individual differences in the nasal bones of pigeons, I must think that it is illogical to suppose that the variations, which natural selection preserves for the good of any being, have been designed ...

*  American Dove Association - Dove Information
Some avian fanciers leave lots of seed available for their doves. Others separate the seed in separate containers, and it is hoped that the doves will select their favorite seed first, but later learn to eat a balanced diet of seeds. We feed our doves once a day; in the evening. We know how much the doves will eat, so there is little waste or no waste to attract rats and mice. We also use a shot glass of niger seed thrown onto the pebbled flights. Doves are active all day, searching out these tidbits. We believe that in their natural state, doves work hard at finding food. The challenge provided here keeps our doves active and in top shape. Overfed, fat doves are not active and are bored. Of course, if we are gone for the weekend, feed hoppers or containers are filled to allow birds to eat at will.. What vitamins do doves need? ...

Beginning in 1996 with only Joe Biel doing part time mail order out of a bedroom in Cleveland, Ohio, Microcosm moved to Portland, OR, in 1999. Microcosm is heralded in the zine community as an entity that, for better or worse, has brought zines into a larger consciousness in the new millennium, after former mainstream interest has largely subsided. They are responsible for many of the recent zine/book hybrid aesthetics and zines that have fancier covers or design aesthetics such as multiple color screenprints, letterpress, or offset printing. There is a particular focus towards images and artwork celebrating bicycles and radical politics. Many of the items offered are not available easily elsewhere on the web or otherwise. Incorporating the tactics of early punk record labels and a DIY approach, Microcosm uses guerrilla styled tactics for promoting their titles unlike most publishers of equal size. They rarely purchase advertising, and rely more heavily on the people who appreciate their craft ...
