cats from a popular pet- friendly cafe died after contracting a rare virus knn as f-i-p.... here to talk a little bit more abou pet expert, dr. this week we learned several cats from a popular pet- friendly cafe died after contracting a rare virus called fip. here to talk about it is dr. jill chaselong with christmas, the most mellow cat i have met. >> unlike cubby who was restless last week. >> let's talk about feline infectious peritonitis. >> it's my least favorite disease that cats get. i don't think any veterinarian likes it. it's caused by the coronavirus. fip is uniformly lethal. we don't have any good way to test for it. we have some tests that give us
the sense of they might have it. we call it a rule-out disease. if the pet is sick, call if you have any change in the pets at aller we basically try to rule out everything and if we find they don't have metabolic or bacterial infection or intestinal disease or whatever, then fip becomes very high on our list. some of the symptoms can be that they are very lethargic, don't want to eat. if they have the wet form they will have an abdomen that fills up with fluid or have trouble breathing if the fluid is in the chest. we are not exactly sure 100% how it's transmitted but it's definitely through the feces and so there's some thought that contamination through litter and other fecal matter could be part of it. >> older cats, younger cats? >> i was just going to say. kittens are much more susceptible and young cats than older cats but they are al sess sent i believe. >> is it rare? >> no. i don't see a lot of it but we see it in a lot of feral cats
and categories cateries. >> if you have a question for dr. jill just email email@example.com or on our facebook page, and we'll have our pet expert give you an answer every friday right here at noon. thank you. in today's job report, jill schlesinger has some surprising tips from recruiters that can help you in your job hunt. reporter: when you send a resume' off to a potential employer, have you ever wondered how many other people have applied for the same job? it may be fewer than you think. recruiters report that almost half of the positions they post attract 50 applicants or less. the jobs that attract a lot of attention 250 applications or more are typically in marketing, finance, government and hospitality. a survey turned up other interesting tidbits. for instance, when on the hunt for job candidates, 92% of recruiters use social media at some point. while linkedin is the most popular resource, facebook is a solid second. 55% of recruiters report using it. the top thing they are hoping
to learn from your social media feeds? how long you typically stay at a job. and once you get in the door for an interview, several surprising factors are likely to leave a lasting impression and they have very little to do with your job qualifications. instead, recruiters are impressed with a candidate's enthusiasm, industry knowledge and conversation skills. i'm jill schlesinger for kpix 5. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
