Does your dog feeling discomfort and Joint Pain : Homeopathy can help

blob-article

Arthritis is an inflammation of joints and which causes pain, discomfort, and stiffness of the joints in many dogs which seem to be lively and healthy. There are different types of arthritis of which rheumatoid arthritis is one, which is an autoimmune disorder. Homeopathy can help your pet to get rid out of this discomfort and pain.

WHAT IS RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS:

It is an autoimmune disorder in which the body mistakes its proteins as foreign. This sends a false alarm to the immune system, which starts producing antibodies against its proteins. These antibodies are called the Rheumatoid factor. The antibodies and proteins form immune complexes that get deposited in the joints and trigger inflammatory reactions. These inflammatory reactions if not treated timely, spread to the surrounding tissues of joints affecting the structural and functional integrity of cartilages, bones, and synovial fluid. Homeopathy has a remedy for this problem.

WHY HOMEOPATHY?

One best alternative to expensive, contraindicative, side effect prone allopathic treatment is the homeopathy. It works on the principle “the law of similar”. It states that the symptoms or syndromes a substance causes experimentally are those that it may clinically resolve when given in specially prepared very small doses to individuals showing similar symptoms.

Homeopathy is a recently chosen alternative widely used by veterinary medicine around the world in addition to any line of treatment because it has no side effects or contraindications.

WHICH BREEDS OF DOG ARE MOST AFFECTED?

The disease is common in toy/small breeds of dog of an age group of five & six years. Breeds like pug, Pomeranian, poodle, etc. are highly susceptible. The idiopathic immune-mediated disease can occur in all the dogs but most common in small–breeds.

SYMPTOMS:

The symptoms of the disease include lameness, fever, stiffness, swelling and painful joints, tonsillitis, enlarged lymph nodes, pneumonia, etc. The severity of the lameness varies from the normal shifting of the gait to the point where the animal cannot walk at all. Fever is associated with inflammatory reactions. Stiffness, swelling of joints, progressive disuse of joints can cause muscle atrophy. Palpably enlarged lymph nodes near the affected joints. Tonsillitis, pneumonia, kidney diseases, muscle wasting diseases are the other diseases that affect animals suffering from arthritis for a long time.

DIAGNOSIS:

The diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis is relatively difficult because it can be confused with other diseases of similar symptoms. Lameness, the prominent sign, can be due to other reasons like osteoarthritis, fracture, nerve injury, calcium imbalance, and many other reasons. Therefore, differential diagnosis by a qualified veterinarian is very important. Radiology along with a biopsy of the inflamed joints are the techniques used for effective diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Blood tests can be done to find the rheumatoid factor. But it must be kept in mind that the mere presence of rheumatoid factor doesn’t confirm rheumatoid arthritis. Synovial fluid can be analyzed for change in pH, color, and consistency and observed for the presence of cells of inflammation.

TREATMENT:

Management: Modifying the dog’s daily routine is the first step to decrease the effects of Rheumatoid arthritis. Increasing the resting period, practicing simple exercises, controlling weight, feeding a balanced diet are the basic changes to be kept in mind while adopting any therapy. If a pet is overweight, pressure on the joints is inevitable thereby slowing the healing process. Regular practice of simple exercises strengthens muscle and blood supply to the affected area thereby accelerating the process of healing.

Homeopathic Remedy of Diarrhoea in Pets

blob-article

Diarrhoea in dogs is very common. Sometimes it is self-limiting, while at other times, dogs become very ill and require hospitalization to recover.

 Symptoms and Types of Dog Diarrhoea:

  • More water in faeces than normal (softer or unformed faeces)
  • An increased volume of faeces
  • Faecal accidents
  • Blood or mucus in the faeces Bloody diarrhoea (PARVO) Diarrhoea may be due to Bacterial / Viral / Worms or any cause
  • Tenesmus ie; Straining to defecate

Symptoms often associated with diarrhoea that can indicate a more severe condition include:

Vomiting – Listlessness – Anorexia (not eating, or eating less) – Depression Abdominal pain – Fever – Weakness

Diarrhoea may result in the following way

Osmotic imbalances occur when the concentration of food molecules in the intestine is too high. Water is drawn into the intestine by the excess molecules, causing diarrhoea in dogs.

Over secretion occurs when the intestine secretes too much fluid after being exposed to bacteria, toxins or parasites.

Intestinal exudation describes a slow oozing of blood fluids through ulcers or other breaks in the intestine’s tissue layers. This exudation can be mild or very severe.

Motility disorders refer to how active the intestine is and its capability of moving contents through it. An intestine that is under-functioning in its ability to muscularly contract and push the contents out of the canal is most common; this condition is referred to as peristalsis. Conversely, motility can be increased as well, so that the intestine contracts too quickly, and fluid which is

normally absorbed is lost into the faeces. Sometimes dog diarrhoea can occur as a result of a combination of these causes. Intestinal infections can also cause the intestine to over secrete. They also tend to change the motility of the intestine.

Following factors can be a cause of dog diarrhoea :

  • Systemic illness · Eating garbage, nonfood material or spoiled food – Changes in diet
  • Drugs and toxins – Ingesting foreign bodies (nonfood items) – Intestinal blockage
  • Viral or bacterial infection · Parasites – Pancreatitis – Hypersensitive digestive tract
  • Stress – Rickettsial (tick-transmitted disease) – Fungal · Addison’s disease – Liver disease
  • Kidney disease

Diagnosis of Acute Diarrhoea in Dogs

A veterinarian should perform a complete physical examination of dog, including a background history of symptoms and possible incidents that might have precipitated this condition. A faecal sample should be examined for parasites. A blood chemical profile, a complete blood count, an electrolyte panel and a urinalysis has to be performed to rule out other causes of disease. X-rays can help rule out the possibility that dog swallowed inappropriate items, which may be blocking or irritating the intestine. In severe cases, an ultrasound can be very useful in diagnosing intestinal obstructions, peristalsis, hypermotility and pancreatitis. Chronic diarrhoea may warrant different tests, including cobalamin and folate (vitamins) levels, lipase, and other markers of intestinal function. Chronic diarrhoea is treated and managed differently than acute diarrhoea.

 

Treatment of Acute Diarrhoea in Dogs

If the dog is only mildly ill, may be treated on an outpatient basis, but patients with severe dehydration and/or vomiting should be hospitalized for fluid and electrolyte therapy. Dehydration can quickly become fatal if the dog continues to have diarrhoea. If the diarrhoea is mild but the dog has any other signs of illness, you may also recommend hospitalization. For those pets with a mild illness, at-home care often includes rest, oral medications and a blended diet of boiled chicken and white rice. you may recommend a dose of fluids before sending pet home. Patients with obstruction or foreign bodies may require surgery to evaluate the intestine and remove foreign objects. Be sure to time guidelines for deworming puppies.

Swelling of Joints in Pets : Homeopathic cure of Osteoarthritis

blob-article

Osteoarthritis is a common problem in dogs, particularly in seniors and large breeds. Identifying the problem early and initiating appropriate management can help keep the dog active and improve quality of life, As there is no cure for this progressive condition in conventional treatment but alternative systems like homeopathic medicine are providing some hope.

 What is Osteoarthritis?

 Osteoarthritis also referred to as Degenerative Joint Disease, is a progressive inflammation of the joints caused by the deterioration of cartilage. While any joint in the body can develop osteoarthritis, the condition most commonly affects the limbs and lower spine. In a healthy joint, cartilage acts as a cushion to allow the joint to move smoothly through its full range of motion. In cases of osteoarthritis, this cartilage cushion begins to break down because of factors such as age, injury, repetitive stress, or disease. The loss of this protective cushion results in pain, inflammation, decreased range of motion, and the development of bone spurs.

Risk Factors for Osteoarthritis in Dogs

Any dog can develop osteoarthritis, particularly as they age, But there are some factors that can predispose a dog to this condition, such as Injuries such as fractures or ligament tears due to Repetitive stress from athletic activities Large or giant breeds, German Shepherd Dogs, Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers Obesity Age, particularly middle-age to senior dogs Infections that affect the joints, such as Lyme Disease, Improper nutrition, Poor conformation, Genetics.

Signs of Osteoarthritis in Dogs

Osteoarthritis can be difficult to detect in its early stages, and often the symptoms do not become apparent until the affected joint is badly damaged. Some dogs can also be very stoic and will hide their pain until it becomes severe. Thus, it is important to monitor middle-aged to senior dogs and those predisposed to osteoarthritis for early signs of joint disease.

These signs include

Stiffness, lameness or difficulty getting up, Lethargy, Reluctance to run, jump, or play, Weight gain, Irritability or changes in behavior, Pain when petted or touched. Difficulty posturing to urinate or defecate or having accidents in the house Loss of muscle mass over the limbs and spine.

 Additional Treatments

 Veterinarians may also recommend other treatment modalities such as physiotherapy, acupuncture, cold laser, and changes in diet. In severe cases, they may recommend surgery to remove damaged tissue from the joint, or even to replace the joint entirely.

Septic Conditions in Dog : Symptoms & Cure

blob-article

There are many diseases in pets which may lead to sepsis or give symptoms of septic like conditions. Bacteremia and septicemia occur when the persistent presence of bacterial organisms in a dog’s bloodstream becomes systemic, meaning that it has spread throughout the body. This is also referred to as blood poisoning and septic fever. This condition becomes very dangerous when it leads to abnormally low blood pressure and high body temperature and can be fatal if left untreated. In severe cases, when the condition has progressed to septic shock, treatment alone will not be enough to save an animal.

Symptoms and Types

There are several signs and symptoms of both septicemia (blood infection) and bacteremia in dogs. Remember that septicemia and bacteremia are not the same things, although they are similar, and are often used interchangeably.

  1. Sepsis and bacteremia in dogs may develop slowly or suddenly
  2. Signs and symptoms may vary, or they may involve many different organ systems, including the cardiovascular system
  3. Symptoms are often confused with the signs and symptoms of many other immune-regulated diseases
  4. Clinical symptoms are often more severe when the organisms involved are gram-negative organisms. These types of organisms are more likely to cause diseases in the dog
  5. Typically, dogs will develop signs and symptoms of the disease in the gastrointestinal tract first
  6. Initial physical signs and symptoms typically include chills, fever, and lethargy
  7. Depression symptoms are common in dogs
  8. Tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) and heart murmur are common

The causes for sepsis and bacteremia in dogs typically include exposure to gram-negative organisms or those organisms that cause diseases in their hosts, including the E. Coli bacteria. Conditions that may increase the likelihood of sepsis:

Surgery, especially if the location of the surgery is infected Existing infections Immune system disorders Pneumonia Uterine infection Urinary tract infection Skin infection Any condition that lowers the immune system places a dog at risk for contraction of a bacterial disease.following are few common bacterial diseases which lead to sepsis.

One cause of septic shock could be an untreated, severe infection, such as from:

  1. Ruptured intestines (typically from intestinal cancer or a foreign body obstruction) · Joint infection · Blood infection
  2. Kidney infection (e.g., polynephritis) · Uterine infection in intact females (e.g., pyometra)
  3. Prostatic infection in male dogs (e.g., prostatic abscess) · Pancreatic infection (e.g., pancreatitis or pancreatic abscess)
  4. Severely infected wound (e.g., abscess or bite wound) or most commonly INFECTION of EAR · Pneumonia
  5. Bacterial infection in the vertebrae (e.g., disk or spondylitis) · Bacterial infection on the heart valves (e.g., bacterial endocarditis)
  6. Ruptured organs (e.g., a ruptured stomach secondary to gastric dilatation-volvulus, a ruptured bladder secondary to bladder stones, or a ruptured gall bladder secondary to gall bladder stones

Your Pet is in Stress : Do you know?

blob-article

Change of any kind-like disruptions to routine or a new home can bring about a lot of stress for dogs. Dogs become accustomed to a routine and changes increase stress even if the change is for the better, However, if the change is an improvement in the dog’s situation, the body’s stress response will return to its normal status much sooner. Some other common stress factors may include loud noises (anything from thunderstorms to fireworks to construction), boarding or kenneling, and even travel. Meeting new family members (whether people or animals) can also cause stress in dogs. As per new researches, Homeopathic Veterinary Medicines may help your pet to come out of stressful situations faster and effectively.

If the dog is stressed for a long period of time changes comes in his health or behaviour, some of which can lead to serious problems if not addressed quickly and properly. Here are six ways stress can affect the dog.

 Behavioural Problems

Stress usually come out as aggression in an acute way in dogs. There can be no doubt that pain or illness can cause stress, they may become irritated, frustrated, and angry. Behavioural changes such as lethargy, hiding in quiet spots, not eating, vomiting and so on may be signs that dog is unwell. Common ailments, such as hip dysplasia, may result in aggression from an otherwise placid canine companion. Subsequently, they will display aggressive behaviour towards anything they associate with the pain or discomfort. The dog may only be temporarily stressed due to illness but the lifestyle impact can continue for a long time. For instance, a puppy that has spent time in a veterinary clinic due to disease or illness may come to dislike the veterinary staff whom they associate with their discomfort and with invasive, uncomfortable procedures. When they are old enough and strong enough, they may bite the veterinary staff.

Loss of Appetite

Any type of stress can cause a loss of appetite, but prolonged stress can cause weight loss from decreased food intake, In addition, some dogs suffering from stress may start chewing or even eating non-food objects. This can include obsessively chewing toys, doors, and window sills, or licking themselves, even to the point of injury.

 Weakened Immune System

When dogs are stressed, the body releases the hormone cortisol as part of the fight-or-flight mechanism. Cortisol helps the body respond to a stressful event—for example, by directing blood flow to the muscles—but when stress becomes a chronic problem, cortisol also causes problems, such as a weak immune system. With stress and, ultimately, immune suppression, dogs are unable to fight off infection or disease. So it’s important to minimize dogs’ stress levels; otherwise, over time, a mild problem can potentially become a major problem.”A good example of this is demodectic mange, a skin disease caused by mites. Demodectic mites live on the skin of almost every dog without causing harm, However, when the body becomes stressed, the mites multiply in certain parts of the skin, causing an obvious infection. Demodectic mange is also commonly diagnosed in puppies, in large part due to their immature immune systems.

 Diarrhoea

In stressful situations, the body also releases adrenaline, another fight-or-flight hormone. Like cortisol, adrenaline can help a dog survive an immediate threat. For example, adrenaline increases heart rate and blood pressure, but these temporary benefits also come with downsides. Adrenaline causes a decrease in blood flow to the intestines and stomach, which can result in diarrhoea in many dogs. Stress-induced diarrhoea often comes on suddenly and is typically not accompanied by other symptoms (no fever, no vomiting).

Issues with Urination

Stress very often causes inappropriate urination in pets. A clear example of this is urination that occurs in response to fear. The immediate release of stress hormones will relax the bladder sphincters and urination will occur and Defecation and anal gland expression may also occur. Chronic stress can also lead to changes in a pet’s urinary habits, but so can a long list of medical problems. Ways to stop stress in dogs treatment for the medically-related problem will depend on the underlying physiological cause. Since conditions such as brain tumours and thyroid conditions can only be diagnosed and treated within a veterinary clinic, Aggressive behaviour in dogs needs to be managed safely and effectively. Dogs that display aggressive behaviour, whether due to medical or behavioural reasons, may benefit from the following homoeopath.

Constipation in Dog : A tedious issue

blob-article

No one wants a dog to feel pain if they can spare it. But many dogs experience many of the same common and complex health concerns as their humans. When a dog is constipated, it can lead to feelings of helplessness in pet owners, and discomfort for the pet.

 What causes of Constipation in dogs?

Veterinarians classify more complex causes of constipation in dogs into three categories: intraluminal, extraluminal, and intrinsic. The word ‘intraluminal’ refers to obstruction of bowel movements within the colon, including inflammation, abnormal growths, and foreign objects. ‘Extraluminal’ can refer to causes that block bowel movements from outside of the colon, such as a pelvic injury or other painful conditions that make it difficult to pass stool. Lastly, the intrinsic causes of constipation in dogs cover a broad range of hormonal and neurological diseases that can affect the digestive tract. Dogs may become constipated due to medicine to treat these injuries and illnesses or as a side effect of the injury itself. The most common cause of constipation in dogs is the ingestion of irritating or indigestible substances. Dogs with long hair or a habit of excessive licking or grooming expose themselves to bacteria and other agents in their surrounding environment that may irritate the stomach or the gastrointestinal tract. Constipation in dogs is also commonly caused by dehydration. Healthy dogs should be drinking about an ounce of water per pound of body weight each day. Though staying hydrated can prevent constipation in dogs, there is such a thing as drinking too much water. Polydipsia can also be an early indicator of other health issues in dogs. Dogs can also experience constipation as the result of an overly sedentary lifestyle. Common pet health practices suggest that dogs go for a fifteen-minute walk twice a day to regulate bowel movements and contribute to the overall quality of life.

Signs of Constipation in dogs:

Constipation in dogs is marked by the inability to pass a bowel movement for more than 24 hours. Most dogs produce feces at least once a day; many of them have bowel movements that correspond to the number of daily feedings. Hard, dry stools that resemble pebbles in texture is also a common sign of constipation dogs, also known as concretion. Aside from the clear signs of constipation, a dog may also experience one or more of the following symptoms.

  • Signs of pain while attempting a bowel movement, hunched posture, tense abdomen, cry of distress.
  • Blood in the stool, or passing blood without a stool, Vomiting, Lethargy
  • Lack of appetite, Difficulty urinating
  • Some constipated dogs will have a tense, painful abdomen and cry or growl if you press on their stomach or lower back. dog fails to produce a bowel movement within 48 to 72 hours of a previous bowel movement.

One can get success by feeding a dog with constipation ONE of the following foods:

  • Canned pumpkin: To help a dog with constipation, you can try feeding them pumpkin, which is high in fiber and water content. You can use either fresh pureed pumpkin or canned pumpkin, but be sure to avoid purees and pie fillings with added sugar, as these often contain a compound that is toxic to dogs.
  • Milk: Like humans, many dogs are lactose intolerant. However, a small bowl of milk can act as a laxative for canines in a crisis.
  • Olive or Coconut Oil: a natural fruit, vegetable, or mineral oil can help lubricate stool for dogs suffering from constipation.
  • Cooked Green Beans are rich in fiber, helping to clean the colon and stimulate bowel movements. This small and tasty vegetable doubles as a unique treat for dogs with constipation.
  • Ginger and Broth: Many humans turn to ginger to help with indigestion, and this remedy can have equally helpful effects for dogs with constipation. Prepare a half-cup of chicken or beef broth with a 1⁄4 teaspoon of ginger to help a constipated dog. Constipation by maintaining a regular schedule of exercise. A healthy level of activity will ensure that the colon receives enough blood flow to function properly. Dogs with constipation should also partake in a fiber-full diet.

Dog Skin Problems:

The sound of a dog constantly scratching or licking can be as irritating as nails on a chalkboard. But don’t blame your pooch for these bad habits – a skin condition is probably the culprit. Possible causes range from parasites to allergies to underlying illness. DERMISULE- A Homeopathic Veterinary Medicines for Dogs and Cats is very helpful for Dog skin problems.

The following images are some of the most common canine skin problems.

Folliculitis: Superficial bacterial folliculitis is an infection that causes sores, bumps, and scabs on the skin. These skin abnormalities are easier to see in shorthaired dogs. In longhaired dogs, the most obvious symptoms may be a dull coat and shedding with scaly skin underneath. Folliculitis often occurs in conjunction with other skin problems, such as mange, allergies, or injury. Treatment may include oral antibiotics and antibacterial ointments or shampoos.

Impetigo: Another type of bacterial infection, impetigo is most common in puppies. It causes pus-filled blisters that may break and crust over. The blisters usually develop on the hairless portion of the abdomen. Impetigo is rarely serious and can be treated with a topical solution. In a small number of cases, the infection may spread or persist.

Seborrhea: Seborrhea causes a dog’s skin to become greasy and develop scales (dandruff). In some cases, it’s a genetic disease that begins when a dog is young and lasts a lifetime. But most dogs with seborrhea develop scaling as a complication of another medical problem, such as allergies or hormonal abnormalities. In these cases, it is vital to treat the underlying cause so symptoms do not recur. Seborrhea itself typically can be treated with certain medicated shampoos.

Ringworm: Despite its name, ringworm is not caused by a worm, but by a fungus. The term “ring” comes from the circular patches that can form anywhere but are often found on a dog’s head, paws, ears, and forelegs. Inflammation, scaly patches, and hair loss often surround the lesions. Puppies less than a year old are the most susceptible, and the infection can spread quickly between dogs in a kennel or to pet owners at home. Various anti-fungal treatments are available.

 Shedding and Hair Loss (Alopecia): Anyone who shares their home with dogs knows that they shed. How much shedding is normal depends on the breed, time of year, and the environment? But sometimes stress, poor nutrition, or illness can cause a dog to lose more hair than usual. If abnormal or excessive shedding persists for more than a week, or you notice patches of missing fur, check with your veterinarian.

 Mange (Mites): Mange is a skin disorder caused by tiny parasites called mites. Sarcoptic mange, also known as canine scabies, spreads easily among dogs and can also be transmitted to people, but the parasites don’t survive on humans. The symptoms are intense itching, red skin, sores, and hair loss. A dog’s ears, face, and legs are most commonly affected. Demodectic mange can cause bald spots, scabbing, and sores, but it is not contagious between animals or people. Treatment depends on the type of mange.

 Fleas: Fleas are the bane of any pet owner. You may not see the tiny insects themselves, but flea droppings or eggs are usually visible in a dog’s coat. Other symptoms include excessive licking or scratching, scabs, and hot spots. Severe flea infestations can cause blood loss and anemia, and even expose your dog to other parasites, such as tapeworms. Treatment may include a topical and/or oral flea killer and a thorough cleaning of the pet’s home and yard.

 Ticks: Ticks, like fleas, are external parasites that feed on the blood of their hosts. You can spot a tick feeding on a dog with the naked eye. To properly remove a tick, and gently pull it straight out. Twisting or pulling too hard may cause the head to remain lodged in a dog’s skin, which can lead to infection. Place the tick in a jar with some alcohol for a couple of days and dispose of it once it is dead. In addition to causing blood loss and anemia, ticks can transmit Lyme disease and other potentially serious bacterial infections.

Color or Texture Changes: Dog’s skin color or coat texture change can be a warning sign of several common metabolic or hormone problems. They can also result from an infection or other skin disorders. Usually, a simple blood test can identify the underlying cause. Be sure to ask your veterinarian about any significant changes to the dog’s coat.

Dry, Flaky Skin: Dry, flaky skin can be a red flag for a number of problems. It’s a common symptom of allergies, mange, and other skin diseases. But most often, dry or flaky skin is nothing serious. Make sure you are feeding Fido high-quality food. Like people, some dogs simply get dry skin in the winter.

 Acral Lick Granuloma: Also called acral lick dermatitis, this is a frustrating skin condition caused by compulsive, relentless licking of a single area — most often on the front of the lower leg. The area is unable to heal, and the resulting pain and itching can lead the dog to keep licking the same spot. Treatment includes discouraging the dog from licking, either by using a bad-tasting topical solution or an Elizabethan collar. Also, ask the dog’s vet whether a medication like a topical or corticosteroid might help.

Skin Tumors: If you notice a hard lump on the dog’s skin, point out to your vet as soon as possible. Dogs can develop cancerous tumors in their skin. The only way to confirm a diagnosis of cancer is to biopsy the tumor. If the lump is small enough, a veterinarian may recommend removing it entirely. This can yield a diagnosis and treatment a single procedure. For tumors that have not spread, this may be the only treatment needed.

 Hot Spots: Hot spots, also called acute moist dermatitis, are small areas that appear red, irritated, and inflamed. They are most commonly found on a dog’s head, hips, or chest, and often feel hot to the touch. Hot spots can result from a wide range of conditions, including infections, allergies, insect bites, or excessive licking and chewing. Treatment consists of cleansing the hot spot and addressing the underlying condition.

 Immune Disorders: In rare cases, skin lesions or infections that won’t heal can indicate an immune disorder in your dog. One of the best known is lupus, a disease that affects dogs and people. Lupus is an autoimmune disorder, meaning the body’s immune system attacks its own cells. Symptoms include skin abnormalities and kidney problems. It can be fatal if untreated.

 Anal Sac Disease: As if dog poop weren’t smelly enough, dogs release a foul-smelling substance when they do their business. The substance comes from small anal sacs, which can become impacted if they don’t empty properly. The hallmark of impacted anal sacs is a dog scooting his bottom along the ground. Other symptoms include biting or licking the anal area. A vet can manually express full anal sacs, but in severe cases, the sacs may be surgically removed.
