The Doctors: Bagel The Sunglass Cat
The Doctors introduced Bagel the cat, who has become an internet sensation. The Southern California feline was born without eyelids and has a medical condition that led her owner and veterinarian to come up with a solution. Everywhere the two-year-old cat goes, she gets tons of attention, thanks to her stylish sunglasses. Now, Sunglass Cat has become such a star that even The Doctors wanted her on their show! Veterianarian Karen Halligan explained that Bagel can’t close her eyes because she doesn’t have any eyelids.
Bagel underwent three eye surgeries in an attempt to remove the hair around her eyes, to prevent it from getting into her eyes. But because the surgeries were unsuccessful, her owner has to pluck out her eyelashes on a weekly basis. She also has to get artificial tears daily. Dr Halligan further explained that sunglasses aren’t just for pets without eyelids, saying that dogs who like to ride with their heads out the windows are prone to corneal ulcers. She suggested owners dress their pets in protective eye wear.

The Doctors: Deadly Mushrooms In San Francisco
Mushroom farmers in the San Francisco Bay area are worried about a crop of deadly mushrooms. The mushrooms, known as death cap mushrooms, have a toxin that eats away at the liver and has already been linked to five deaths in California.

If you or your pet have consumed a poisonous mushroom, seek medical help right away and contact your closest poison control center.
