The doctrine of "infection," like the somewhat allied doctrine of "maternal impressions," seems to be alike ancient and widespread.
Evidence of the antiquity of the belief in "maternal impressions" we have in Jacob placing peeled rods before Laban's cattle to induce them to bring forth "ring-straked speckled and spotted" offspring; evidence of the antiquity of the "infection" doctrine we have, according to some writers, in the practice amongst the Israelites of requiring the childless widow to marry her deceased husband's brother, that he might "raise up seed to his brother."
Whatever may have been the views of stockowners in the remote past, it is certain that during the middle ages the belief in "infection" was common amongst breeders, and that during the last two centuries it met with the general approval of naturalists, English breeders being especially satisfied of the fact that the offspring frequently inherited some of their characters from a former mate of the dam, while both English and Continental naturalists (apparently without putting the assertions of breeders to the test of experiment) accounted for the "throwing back" by saying the germ cells of the dam had been directly or indirectly "infected" by a former mate.
If, on the other hand, "infection of the germ" is impossible, telegony will not count as a factor in variation, and breeders will no longer be either justified in regarding mares and other female animals as liable to be "corrupted" by ill-assorted unions, or benefited by first having offspring to a high-class, or it may be more vigorous, mate.

The coughing could also be a sign of a feline heartworm infection.
It presents as a respiratory infection, rather than as a heart problem like it would in dogs.
It would have shown if your cat had a parasitic infection, so it really does sound like there's a food allergy in play.
Could a vaccination reaction, an allergy or a respiratory infection be the reason why one visitor's cat can't stop sneezing?
Second, did your vet check your cat for a respiratory infection when you took her back in?
Although nasal discharge is quite common with this type of infection, some cats don't present with this symptom, so it's still worth checking into.
Third, if the sneezing isn't related to the booster or an infection, we need to look at possible changes in your cat's environment to determine whether the sneezing is allergy related.
No, she did not check for a respiratory infection when I took her back, nor did she call the manufacturer of the vaccine, as far as I am aware.
What you describe are some of the symptoms of Feline Upper Respiratory Infection (URI).
Your best bet is to take your feline to the vet and get a complete diagnosis to see if this is an infection or if the swelling is being caused by something else.
Has your cat been tested for an upper respiratory infection recently?
Cats can be prone to them and it doesn't sound like the vet has tried putting her on an antibiotic to treat a possible rhinitis infection.
Her blood cell count also indicates that she has some type of infection somewhere in her body.
It sounds as though your kitten has a severe respiratory infection.
Although the mucous discharge is not a direct symptom of distemper, the disease lowers a cat's immunity, so it's possible for an affected animal to develop a secondary respiratory infection.
The kitten needs to see a vet immediately because the infection could be progressing into pneumonia.
This way the vet can rule out any infection in the paws or bladder/kidney issues.
Uneven swelling, such as in her neck and chest area indicate that she may have a local infection that is spreading.
Occasionally, incisions also cause an abscess to develop which must be drained and treated to prevent further infection as well.
A ringworm infection also causes the type of patchy hair loss you describe, so this is another avenue for your vet to investigate.
This infection attacks felines of all ages and breeds.
When the immune system detects the infection, it begins to systematically destroy the red blood cells that carry the bacterium.
If you are experiencing an elimination problem with your cat, it could be caused by a medical problem such as urethral blockage, bladder infection, cystitis or a kidney problem.
The blood that is seen in the litter box may also be coming from the pet's urine, signaling a urinary tract infection.
If your feline friend stops using the litter box, there may be a medical problem such as a bladder infection, a urethral blockage, cystitis or a kidney problem.
Watery or red eyes - A cat that has red or watery eyes or even a combination of the two may signal an infection or an allergy.
Animals in this condition may have an allergy, cold or upper respiratory infection.
Although all cats are susceptible, male cats are far more likely to experience a feline urinary tract infection than female cats.
There are several reasons why your cat might get a urinary tract infection.
Many cats that have had a feline urinary tract infection will have at least one other incidence in their lifetime.
Any cat that comes in contact with these substances may get the infection.
You pet has a greater risk of infection if it is very young, old or already has a compromised immune system.
The infection can be found in two separate stages.
However, the infection progresses into FIP in a small percentage of cats.
The cat's antibodies stop protecting the cat from infection and actually assist the virus in infecting white blood cells.
An outdoor Tom is more likely to become involved in fights and sustain infection from an injury.
Cat bite infection symptoms can vary from individual to individual.
As your body sends antibodies to fight infection, it causes the temperature around the infected area to heat up even before the area turns red.
