Hypoallergenic & Low Shed: What that really means...

Many people are unfortunately under the impression that hypoallergenic means that the animal or thing labeled so will not cause any type of allergic reaction. The truth about "hypoallergenic" animals, things and many products such as makeup/soaps/detergents, is that it is only to a certain extent. This means that allergies are much less common or as a minimum much less severe in people that already have a pre-disposition to have a reaction to this certain type of animal or product.
For example a person with mild cat allergies may have no reaction at all to a bengal cat while a person with severe allergies is more likely to still have a reaction to a bengal but it will be mild compared to the reaction they would have to a regular cat. There have been people that have come with severe cat allergies but have no reaction at all to bengals and this is the best case scenario but in order to be sure we highly recommend people visit with bengals first if they know they are prone to cat allergies. Bengals are mainly less allergenic due to their ALC (Asian Leopard Cat) genetics but it is always a good idea to test this out before purchasing a kitten. Feel free to contact us to schedule an allergy test visit. 


***ALLERGIES: Most feline allergies are cause by a protein component in the cat's saliva, other less common allergens are the cats urine, dander and dead skin cells. Bengals have ALC genes which are thought to negate the type of protein that generally causes allergies but this has not been scientifically proven as of 2017. Reduction in allergic reaction or no reaction at all are definitely a noteable occurence among bengal fans and owners so the best advice we can give to someone that is allergic to cats (from mild to severe degrees), but is intersted in a Bengal- is to schedule an allergy test visit appointment to see if a reaction does occur.***

Bengals are low-shed meaning they will shed less than you! Bengals have one of the most minimal shedding levels but they do still shed once a year and when under a significant amount of stress. The only cat that will not shed is a Sphynx. Regular cats shed alot and year-round. This means one brush against your leg and your white jeans are covered in long cat hairs. This means you vaccume almost every other day due to the crazy amount of hair all over the carpet, furniture and walls. This is not the case with a Bengal. They are excellent groomers and rarely need any upkeep or brushing, although some enjoy being brushed quite a bit. When you are cleaning out your vaccume wondering what clogged it up you will find that it is HUMAN hair, your wife's, girlfriend's or if you're a female yourself ...it is YOUR hair that is the main thing clogging up that roller brush on the vaccume. This actually makes me quite happy as I am ocd about keeping things clean and not finding ANY cat hair in my vaccume is a great sign of a clean and pet hair free home.


Common Bengal Health Issues

We have done an extensive amount of research for years before breeding any of our cat and we found a few genetic issues that bengals commonly have, a few viral things and some health problems that veterinarians commonly come into contact with when seeing bengals that we felt were important for prospective owners to know more about. We try our best to test our cats for every possible health issue (most common bengal health issues listed above and tested for in each cat) but there are still things that can happen to a perfectly healthy bengal, in fact to any animal that may be out of anybody's control. If any health issues at all ever come up in your bengal's lifetime please do the right thing and let us know as soon as possible. Our goal is to breed healthy pets and if any type of issue(s) arise it is always important to let the breeder know no matter where your bengal was purchased from. The breeder always needs to know about any health issues so that they can then figure out if this is something that is being genetically passed down to the offspring or if it is an isolated case. Here are the possible health issues that we felt were important to know about for any prospective bengal owner.


Herpes: This is not a major health issue since it is present in almost all cats, over 90% of ALL cats (all cat breeds) harbor the herpes virus meaning they are a carrier of it. That being said, most cats have the virus but it rarely causes issues. In the rare chance that the virus is  prevalent it can cause some cats to get URIs or runny eyes during times of stress. If you have ever seen a persian cat you would know their eyes are contantly runny due to their skeletal structure but also the herpes virus tending to prevail more often in that breed than others. It is most noticeable in the form of runny eyes in Bengals as well and is rarely an issue.

Vaccine sensitivities: Bengals are highly sensitive to vaccinations and we always highly recommend only administering the bare minimum as well as watching carefully for side effects and adverse reactions. Bengals are especially sensitive to the rabies vaccine and it is normal for them to lose their appetite and throw up the day following the shot. We urge people to decline any "extra" vaccinations that veterinarians may suggest, all of our bengals are indoor pets so there is no need for many of those vaccinations that are pushed upon bengal owners. In fact we strongly urge to avoid all vaccinations and only get administered what legally needs to be (rabies every 1-3 years)

Diarrhea: This is a common issue many worried owners bring their bengals to the vets for. Bengals have a sensitive stomach and can only handle Grain-free foods. Small changes in foods, or changes not made slowly enough will result in an upset stomach. If regular cat food is fed it is very likely the bengal will have diarrhea, if this is the case switch to a grain-free kibble immediately. Bengals are also sensitive to environmental changes and may have diarrhea for a few days after moving to a new home, moving states or going to the vets. Stressful experiences and bacterial changes in their environment can cause this to happen. This should not be an issue and should not last longer than 3 days, if it does or if the cat is having trouble making it to the litter box then please seek veterinary assistance. Diarrhea is most commonly a product of a parasite such as Coccidia, Giardia, or Tritrichomonas foetus. A regular stool exam will not show Tritrich. so if a bengal is showing an unresolved case of Diarrhea it is extremely important to test for Giardia, Coccidia, and Tritrich separately from the general stool test before assuming food allergies which is rarely the case (like most veterinarians are quick to assume). If the Diarrhea is not parasitic but rather bacterial, then a course of antibiotics is usually prescribed that will clear it up fairly quickly but there are isolated instances when bacterial diarrhea can reocurr and may need a few courses before it fully clears up.

Upper Respiratory Infection (URI): Comparable to the human cold or flu, and typical across all cat breeds it is not uncommon for a feline to have a URI 0-2 times during their lifetime. Symptoms are sneezing, runny nose, runny eyes, hoarse voice, coughing & wheezing, loss of appetite and lethargy. This isn't as serious as it sounds and many cats do very well after taking some L-Lysine (an amino acid that vets suggest in the form of powder or gel that doesnt need a prescription). Some vets will prescribe an antibiotic such an amoxicillin to prevent a possible secondary bacterial infection from occuring. Best way to treat a cat sick with a URI is to nebulize (this can be done by carefully boiling a teapot next to a crate that they are confined to or running a hot shower and closing them in the bathroom, the goal is to have them inhale the steam which helps them clear their sinuses). Give them L-Lysine twice daily, provide them with enticing foods (cooked chicken is hard for them to resist) and give them a warm (heated) cat bed to rest in. Just like the human cold or flu it can be caused by unsanitary conditions or crowded environments but just because your cat got a URI this doesnt mean that you did someting wrong, it is normal for this to happen at least once in the felines lifetime.

Anesthesia Sensitivity: This one is important to know since each kitten will need to be spayed/neutered at the appropriate age and this is also part of why we recommend waiting for the kitten to be a bit older before spaying/neutering. Bengals are highly sensitive to anesthesia so always warn the vet that will be performing surgery to keep an extra close eye on your bengal. They have a hard time maintaining their body temperature during and after surgery so a heating pad on the lowest setting and a warm safe place to rest afterwards is a must. Many people prefer to carefully hold their bengal in their arms in a warm blanket to keep their babies warm for a few hours after the operation. It is also rare but anesthesic allergic reactions (do not use the anesthetic Ketamine) and cardiac arrest can occur and it is important to discuss this with the vet prior to the operation. *Look for a vet with bengal experience as many vets simply do not know this*

Issues that may arise with old age: It's important to remember that any dog, cat, or animal can have any of these common health problems that are a by-product of the aging process. It is near impossible to predict whether or not they will occur but to name a few: CRF Chronic renal failure, luxating patellas, joint pain, kidney failure, kneecap issues, cataracts, declining vision, arthritis, dental disease, urinary tract infections, loss of mobility, etc. When purchasing any pet it is important to remember that any animal will need more care as they get older and there are things that are normal for bengals to develop with old age. Our cats have not had any of the issues just listed with old age but that does not make it an impossibility.
