According to this vet, Dr Mader, Stachybotrys chartarum, which we believe is very dangerous for susceptible humans can also cause respiratory-related health problems, pulmonary hemorrhage and death in your pets. The subject of pets affected by mold is not one that has been examined closely (except perhaps lab animals in experimentation); but he has doctored cats who died as a result of respiratory problems, and whose blood work shows evidence of Stachybotrys chartarum. The family who owned the cats had lived in a flood affected area in 2005. The “cat channel” quotes Dr Mader’s suggestion to make sure your veterinarian knows if your house has been flooded. Mader said. “I think the most important thing is for people to be aware of things in their environment that could potentially impact the health of animals.”
