Homeopathy is a Science

Other than the conventional medicines which are based on the principle of “poison kills poison”, the Homeopathic system, pioneered by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in Europe in the 19th century works on the principle of “Similimum similibus curantur” or “Like cures like,” . Homeopathic practitioners have found that substances that produce symptoms similar to the symptoms of the disease can be used to cure the same disease.

Homeopathy for Animals

Most of the veterinarians or pet practitioners accept homeopathy as the best alternative to conventional treatment because of it’s nature to cure even the chronic diseases that we commonly see in animal patients. The goal of a homeopathic veterinarian is not merely to treat the disease but to cure it. That is the most important concept of the Homeopathic System of Medicine.  Homeopathic medicine cures any chronic disease with added benefits like no side effects or no contraindications.

A lot of chronic problems that cannot be treated by conventional western medicine can be treated by homeopathy.  Conditions like skin allergies, ear infections, asthma, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, epilepsy, thyroid disease, and many other conditions have a cure with homeopathy.

IS MY DOG PREGNANT WITHOUT BREEDING? – A SHORT FAQ GUIDE ON PSEUDO-PREGNANCY.

blob-article

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

Do you ever wonder the signs that your pet is exhibiting is not natural? Like your female doggo starts showing signs of increased mammary gland size and lactation on physical check-up at your VET? Or they start behaving oddly, protecting toys and being aggressive, and even start nesting (preparing for birth) even though they have not being bred? Does your pet undergo a series of hormonal and behavioral changes that become very evident? 

Then, your pet might be suffering from a condition called pseudo-pregnancy, and your vet might even suggest the same.

Tanvi Shendye, Final Year Student, Bombay Veterinary College.

But what exactly is this pseudo pregnancy condition? How does it unfold? What exactly happens?

We’ve got you covered in this blog. All your doubts and questions are answered in this blog as this blog extensively covers pseudo-pregnancy symptoms, treatment and reasons why it occurs.   Read more right below –

WHAT IS PSEUDOPREGNANCY?

Pseudo pregnancy is the development of signs of pregnancy without the presence of an implanted embryo or foetus.

It’s a common condition in female dogs as compared to female cats. This condition is rather common in 50% of the non-spayed female population.

False pregnancy is also called –

  • phantom pregnancy
  • pseudo-pregnancy
  • pseudocyesis

The female dogs exhibit a display of maternal (mothering) behaviour which is combined with the physical signs of pregnancy following oestrus or heat in a female dog that is not actually pregnant. Also, some females may behave as if parturition has occurred and may start nesting inanimate objects and refusing to eat.

WHEN DOES THIS OCCUR?

Pseudo-pregnancy occurs at the end of diestrus (a phase in oestrus cycle or monthly cycle in female dogs) and is characterized by hyperplasia (increase in size) of the mammary glands, lactation, and behavioural changes even when mating has not occurred (and thus, non-pregnant condition)

WHY DOES PSEUDO-PREGNANCY OCCUR? WHAT HAPPENS EXACTLY?

Hormones are produced by ovaries regardless of pregnancy. In fact, ovaries have a major role in pregnancy (stimulation, maintenance and end of pregnancy) also, in non-pregnant dogs, the regular oestrous cycle is under influence of ovaries! So we know, ovary here is the major reason. Now, these hormones prepare the uterus to receive the foetuses and maintain pregnancy and hence continually produce hormones to maintain this pregnancy until parturition (or the birth of puppies) and then a new set of hormones take over for lactation (milking the young ones)

And when the dog is not pregnant, these hormones will subside after a few weeks to resume the cycle once again. The hormones begin to decline after 4-6 weeks.

However, In pseudo-pregnancy condition, increased levels of circulating hormones cause changes that start mimicking a real pregnancy even though there is no conception and no foetus (pregnancy)

Pet Fever

WATCH OUT FOR SYMPTOMS!

Symptoms of false pregnancy usually begin at around four to eight weeks after the previous heat period and it mimics the symptoms of true pregnancy.

The most common signs of pseudo-pregnancy include :

Hyperplasia of Mammary gland (Enlargement of Mammary Glands)

During pregnancy, the mammary glands increase in size to accommodate and produce milk which will be generally produced for nursing young pups. However, even in pseudo-pregnancy, there is an increase in Mammary Glands’ size. The body undergoes some series of Hormonal Changes which leads to this condition.

The progesterone level falls while prolactin levels increase in concentrations and thus, is associated with this condition.

Production of milk from Mammary Glands.

Like mentioned before, there is an increase in the size of the mammary gland. These glands however may /may not produce milk. And yes, in pseudo-pregnancy both possibilities can occur.

Weight Gain

Due to the hormonal changes happening in the body, there is an increase in the weight of your pet which is very obvious and it’s not related to the amount of intake of food.

Although there might be an increase in appetite or there could be anorexia.

Your furry friend could start eating a lot or, not -a-lot (Anorexia in Pets).

Lethargy

Is your pet is always tired, and appear different? Time to get them checked up! It could be because of many reasons, yes pseudo-pregnancy being one of it.

Behavioural Changes

Now, this condition is all because of hormonal changes and imbalance, there obviously are certain behavioural signs which you can evidently observe –

  • Nesting
  • Mothering behaviour and activity
  • Restlessness
  • lethargy and Decreased interest in physical activity
  • Aggressive behaviour
  • Protecting toys or other small objects.
HOW DO WE TREAT THIS CONDITION?

Mild conditions generally don’t need treatment as they resolve after a certain time on their own.

Spaying

To prevent future cases of hormonal conditions, if the female is not going to be bred or used for breeding purposes and if the owner chooses, the dog should be spayed.

Ovariohysterectomy is recommended to prevent future episodes of Pseudo-Pregnancy and ideally, this condition should never re-occur.

Dog Homeopathic Medicine

Management of Pseudo-pregnancy.

Now, if your pet is showing signs of pseudo-pregnancy, we can always medically manage this condition –

DITCH THE ITCH – Canine Atopic Dermatitis FAQ guide.

blob-article

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

Scratches, Itches, and the hell of hair loss, there often comes a moment when your pet is really irritated and tired of scratching because something on their skin (or maybe inside) keeps bothering them. Is your pet annoyed and itchy? Does it have constant irritation on the skin? Why is this happening, what’s wrong? Let’s find out! In this mini-FAQ guide, we will share with you the causes, effects, and treatment of this vicious cycle of skin irritation.

Tanvi Shendye

Final Year Student, Bombay Veterinary College, Mumbai

WHAT IS THIS CONDITION CALLED?

Atopic Dermatitis is a kind of skin disease wherein your pet has flares and periods of constant irritation. They scratch their bodies with their paw vigorously as if something’s bothering them endlessly. More often than not, it is an allergic reaction to allergens (outside particles). Allergy can be due to food or environmental pollutants or dust mites. Dermatitis means Derm – Skin, and itis – inflammation, Dermatitis hence is an inflammation of the skin. The inflammation is due to allergens or bacterias or fungus or due to trauma caused to the skin by constant scratch bites, etc. Also, it could be because of parasites such as ticks fleas and mites.

BUT WHAT EXACTLY CAUSES THIS CONDITION?

The reasons are many, we have shortlisted the main ones for you.

  1. Bacterial Disease

There are N number of bacterias that reside on the surface of our skin, and they’re majorly harmless. They’re known as commensals (they do not cause any damage to the skin) however In conditions such as allergies/Hypothyroidism or flea allergy the immune system gets triggered and reacts with normal skin flora and hence hypersensitivity occurs.

Also In immuno-deficient or compromised pets, bacterial infection occurs concurrently with fungal or yeast infection.

  1. Fungal or Yeast Infection

Due to low immunity, fungal organisms have the ability to attack normal skin and hence cause infection and the same goes for yeast as well.

More often than not, mixed infection is seen. i.e. bacterial and fungal both organisms are present triggering itching and skin allergy.

  1. Allergies

Due to some food allergies or non-specific allergies such as air pollutants or dust mites, dogs may get itchy and get dermatitis.

For example, some dogs may not tolerate wheat and hence if given ‘Rotis’ or flatbread made out of wheat, they start showing Fur loss or itching.

  1. Fleas and Ticks.

The most dreaded parasites, ticks, and fleas are the forerunners in causing itching and pruritus and consequently leading to dermatitis. These ectoparasites dwell on the skin or the fur regions and feed on the blood of the host. Fleas bites and sucks blood while ticks attach to one point. Nevertheless, both these parasites are extremely irritating to the skin of the pets and causes inflammation.

Homeopathic remedy for Dog Skin Problem

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS TO WATCH OUT FOR?

If you wonder what exactly is wrong with my pet, and if they have atopic Dermatitis or not, watch out for the signs!

Most signs develop secondary to self-trauma (excessive itching) and/or due to the presence of secondary bacterial infections.

  1. Constant itching and scratching.

You can’t find any reason why your pet keeps scratching it’s ears or skin. They keep on scratching their paws or their ears or their abdominal region. They often bite the sites of irritation. This causes aggravation of the condition.

Where do they scratch exactly?

  1. Ear Pinna
  2. Armpit area (front legs)
  3. Ventral Abdomen.
  4. They try to bite their back or chest area
  5. Groin area
  6. Thighs and legs
  7. Elbow or Carpal joints
  8. Paws

 

  1. They’re constantly irritated.

They keep on biting their own skin and as if something’s constantly bothering them.

  1. Redness of skin

Due to itching, scratching, and biting the skin gets inflamed and hence the skin appears reddish. This is due to excessive mechanical trauma caused by constant scratching the skin surface. Sometimes due to biting own skin too, redness is seen. Again, this could be because of trauma or because of infectious agents.

  1. Loss of fur

Fur loss is evident as you start observing a lot of fur lying on the ground or on your sofa or bed.

Due to the infection, and again due to scratching, fur loss is observed. And hence you can evidently see the redness of the skin along with excessive loss of fur and scaly appearance of skin.

  1. Smell

Sometimes, the skin which is affected by this infection will start to smell. Reason? Bacterial and Fungal overgrowth and infection.

These organisms when affecting the skin cause damage to the skin and off-odors start emanating from the skin.

  1. Papules

Due to infection, the area can appear swollen (a little bulgy). It is a small, raised, and tender bulge in the skin. It may or may not be painful. Yes, it is due to excessive irritation to the skin layer.

It’s interesting to note that certain breeds are predisposed to Atopic Dermatitis. Few examples are –

  1. Boxers
  2. Lab Retrievers
  3. Lhasa Apso
  4. Shih Tzu
  5. Dalmatian
  6. Golden Retriever

HOW TO DIAGNOSE THIS CONDITION?

It’s a pretty simple task if you start ruling out the probable causes one by one.

  1. Rule out food allergies.

Your vet will guide you the best about this. They will ask you questions such as your pet’s food history and if milk/meat/wheat is causing the irritation.

  1. Rule out ectoparasites

If your pet has fleas or ticks that could be one of the prime reasons for pruritus and itching. The fleas have the nature of biting the skin of animals and sucking blood while ticks have the nature of attachment and sucking blood. Both of which are seriously annoying to pets and can lead to further infection and dermatitis.

  1. Rule out other ectoparasites.

Demodex, Sarcoptes are mites that burrow under the skin and cause massive damage. The condition they cause is called “Mange” and depending upon the causative agent they’re referred to as Demodectic Mange or Sarcoptic Mange.

Your vet will perform a skin scrapping exam to check out the causative organism under the microscope.

  1. Microscopic examination

To find out if the infection is due to fungal or yeast organisms, skim scrapping is again very essential to check out if it’s a fungus or mites that are leading to the skin infection and dermatitis.

HOW TO TREAT? WHAT IS THE TREATMENT PROTOCOL FOR ATOPIC DERMATITIS?

The treatment of Dermatitis usually takes a few weeks to a few months depending upon the severity of the condition. The smaller or local lesion will take a few weeks or even days to get cured however generalized lesions will take a lot more time!

Patience is the key.

  1. Medicated baths and shampoos

Certain medicinal shampoos containing Benzyl Benzoate or Ketoconazole etc. are effective against various infectious organisms. These drugs in the shampoo act on the skin surface and work effectively against the microorganisms causing the skin disorder.

Repeat Breeding in Cow : Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

blob-article

Repeat Breeding in Cow

Repeat breeding is an expensive hitch at every level of dairy products from small scale to large scale. It affects the profitability of dairy cattle thus increasing the age at first calving in heifers, extending the inter-calving period each time insemination fails and decreasing the calf crop at the last.

Dr Hemlata Telluri, Veterinarian

When a Cow is called a Repeat Breeder?

A cow is called a repeat breeder when it

  1. has failed to conceive even after three or more number of services
  2. has a normal oestrus cycle length
  3. no abnormality in the vaginal discharge
  4. no palpable abnormality in the reproductive tract
  5. has calved at least once before and
  6. less than ten years of age

Why Homeopathy in Veterinary?

One best alternative to expensive, contraindicative, side effect prone allopathic treatment is 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.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

What are the different types of Repeat Breeders?

An early repeater is an animal in which the most probable event could be either failure of fertilization or early embryonic death. The cows return to heat within 17-24 days after AI.

late repeater is a cow in which heat is observed later than 25 days after AI.

What are the different reasons for the Repeat Breeding condition?

The underlying reasons for a cow becoming a repeat breeder could be many of which anatomical, functional, infectious, and managemental causes are the main.

Anatomical

  • Persistent hymen
  • Cervical problems
  • Ovobursal adhesions
  • Fibrous fallopian tubes
  • Uterine adhesions

Functional

  • Delayed ovulation
  • Anovulation
  • Luteal insufficiency
  • Failure of nidation of the fertilized ovum
  • Deficiency of Progesterone
  • Excess of estrogen

Infectious

  • Specific and non-specific uterine infections associated with fertilization failure or early embryonic mortality
  • Clinical or sub-clinical endometritis
  • Bacterial or mycotic endometritis

Managemental

  • Improper semen handling
  • Faulty AI technique
  • Malnourishment
  • Incorrect AI time
  • Deficiency of energy
  • Aged sperm and ovum
  • Poor hygiene at the time of calving and A.I
  • Poor management and handling of frozen semen or poor quality semen
  • High ambient temperature and humidity, stress.

Genetic or chromosomal abnormalities,

most prevalent in Jersey and Holstein.

Age, higher incidences of repeat breeding is seen in old cows

How to identify a Repeat Breeder?

Diagnosis of repeat breeding itself is a challenging task. Heat record maintenance is a must to find out whether a cow is an early heat repeater or a late heat repeater. Cows that have had three services and are not pregnant should be checked before serving again by a veterinarian.

What are the management tips for cows showing Repeat Breeding conditions?

As there is no single cause that leads to repeat breeding syndrome, the following guidelines are recommended if no specific cause has been identified.

  1. Bringing the animal into positive nutritive balance.
  2. Micronutrients and vitamin supplementation such as Se, Zn, Cu, Mn, and vitamin A, D, and E on a daily basis.
  3. Use of good quality semen having more than 50 percent progressive forward motility.
  4. Insemination of the cow at the right time of the estrum. AI twice at 12 to the 24-hour interval.
  5. Proper AI technique.
  6. After AI, clitoral massage or 100 micrograms of GnRH or 1500 IU of the luteinizing hormone can be administered to stimulate ovulation.
  7. Skip the AI, administer 1 million units of penicillin in saline twice at 12 hours intervals during estrum.
  8. Flushing the uterus with normal saline with moderate pressure to remove cellular debris or mild blocks in oviducts.
  9. Sexual rest for two consecutive cycles and breeding.

LET’S RUN AGAIN! – FAQ’s TREATMENT AND MANAGEMENT OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.

blob-article

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a condition that targets the joints of your pet which causes the dog to have difficulties in walking, running, and your dog generally starts avoiding walks. Running becomes a problem, normal walks feel strange as your dog is reluctant to walk for long who seems to appear a bit dull.

What exactly is this condition, how to manifest it, its signs and symptoms, treatment protocol, and managemental care that should be concentrated upon are well explained in the blog given below. So, spare some time to protect your dog from this dreadful condition.

Dr. Hemlata Talluri, Veterinarian

Lets Run
HOW COMMON IS THIS CONDITION?

It is commonly seen in small breeds of dogs, generally between 5 and 6 years of age. However, it depends upon individuality as well and any breed dog can be affected.

WHAT IS RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS?

Rheumatoid arthritis is an immune-mediated disease. What immune-mediated disease actually means is – ‘When your immune system starts to react against self-body cells’.

The immune system of our body acts as a defense system against foreign particles such as bacteria, viruses dust particles, etc. Immune System cells will attack such foreign particles and kill it and then expel it out of the body. However, in some diseases such as this condition of rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system becomes a bit dysfunctional and starts misinterpreting and recognizing some of its own body protein for foreign protein.

Immune System produces a substance called ANTIBODY which basically is Anti (Against) Body (Foreign Body) and fights with ANTIGEN (foreign protein).

The body reacts to the antigen by producing antibodies that bind the antigen and on binding, they form Immune complexes called ANTIGEN-ANTIBODY COMPLEX, which in this condition gets deposited in the joints.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

This deposited Antigen-Antibody complex triggers an inflammatory response in the joints. Inflammation is a normal process through which a body reacts to something which is abnormal or foreign to our body.

Due to this inflammation, there is

  1. Pain in the joints
  2. Difficulty in moving the joints
  3. Difficulty to move legs
  4. Generalized Lameness
WATCH OUT FOR THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS –
  1. Generally, this condition affects many joints at a time, especially the legs joint.
  2. Lameness – the animal is seen as lame, doesn’t wish to walk or move with difficulty. Lameness could be severe to very mild depending upon the severity of the disease and disease progression.
  3. Stiffness in legs
  4. Unwillingness to walk for a long time due to pain
  5. Pain in joints
  6. Swelling in joints in some conditions
  7. Loss of muscle mass in that affected legs (Muscle Atrophy)
  8. Also, loss of appetite fever can be seen.
DIAGNOSTIC FEATURES –

If you notice your dog having walking issues, is a bit tired and dull, you should take your pet to the vet who would suggest certain tests to find out if it is Rheumatoid Arthritis or if something else is at play here.

For the diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis,

  1. An X-Ray would be taken to rule out fractures, any bone deformities.
  2. An X-Ray is also indicative of joint getting worn out/ mild to a severe loss of joint bones due to immune-mediated rheumatoid arthritis.
  3. Blood test – to rule out any infections which can affect the mobility of the dog

A special blood test to check out for “Rheumatoid Factor” can be done too.

However, this factor is not that sensitive as even dogs with no rheumatoid arthritis can have this factor shown up in the test.

  1. Synovial Fluid Test – Synovial Fluid is present in the joints of all animals including humans as this fluid acts as a shock absorbent, which maintains the proper movement of the joints and helps in locomotion.

The synovial fluid is analyzed and it shows characteristic typical changes.

Cells involved in inflammation are present in large numbers, which is indicative of an inflammation process occurring  The fluid is usually cloudy in appearance and is of a thinner consistency than normal in such cases.

  1. Biopsy of tissue can also aid in diagnostics.
Homeopathic Medicine for Pets
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT PROTOCOL FOR RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS?

As this condition is non – curable but it is DEFINITELY manageable by medical treatment.

We take steps to minimize the effects of the immune system so the disease doesn’t progress and your pet has a good to the fair prognostic outcome.

  1. STRICT MEDICAL CARE – as suggested by the vet Immunosuppressive drugs such as corticosteroids (Prednisone, etc.) or NSAID’s are recommended.

Homeopathic treatment by our product INFLASULE is a great remedy to help manage this condition.

Dosage: 20 drops three times a day or as directed by the doctor.

Contraindication: No known contraindication

  1. WEIGHT MANAGEMENT –

Joints help in proper movement of legs as we all know, our body weight does play an important role in the movement. How?

The weight of the body is borne by the joints and an excess weight causes more strain on the joints. If your dog suffers from a Rheumatoid Arthritis problem, the joint is already tired and a bit sick as well. Due to excessive weight, the joints get more tired and strained out causing more problems.

To ensure that your pet is not overweight as it may add to the burden or stress of joints and the joint movements can be hampered, you can consult your vet for weight management protocols, feed exercises, etc which can ensure your pet is fit and fine.

  1. SUPPORTIVE CARE –

Swimming, gentle massages, walking slowly, leg/joint support belts are great ways to stimulate your pet’s joints and aid in movement.

We need to stimulate the joints and not let our pets be dull as it may take a mental toll on them. Health does not only mean physical health but also mental health. And for that, take your pets for walks although short, take them for swimming to stimulate the legs and joints.

FEVER IN PETS? FAQs, MANAGEMENT, HOMEOPATHIC REMEDY

blob-article

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

We all love our pets and treat them as our beloved family members. We play, eat, sleep, and even get envious when they are not around or not interested to play with us. Our life revolves around our pets’ misbehavior every day. There wouldn’t be a day without our pet creating its own magical spell on us. However, sometimes we notice our pets are not so active, with not much interest in playing, eating, and seems to be comparatively dull and lethargic than the previous day.

Tanvi Shandye, Final Year Student, Bombay Veterinary College

What is happening with my pet?

I am sure, we all must have experienced the feeling of helplessness when our pet is dull, suffering from anorexia, inactive, suddenly behaves oddly, and we don’t know what actually went wrong. Then keeping an eye on our pet’s temperature, anxiety, and weakness is important. Sometimes, we can notice an obvious increase in body temperature as we touch them. This increase in body temperature can be evident only when we know the normal body temperature of our pet on daily basis.

This increase in body temperature above the normal range is termed as Pyrexia or Fever.

There are certain conditions where there is an increase in body temperature but it cannot be termed as Pyrexia or Fever like in the case of Hyperthermia.

WHAT IS THE BASIC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PYREXIA AND HYPERTHERMIA?

Hyperthermia is an increase in the core body temperature due to the failure of the thermoregulatory mechanism in the body. Whereas, Pyrexia or Fever is an increase of the body temperature above the normal range, which is induced by activation of cytokines due to pyrogens.

 

💡 Fun Fact – Our brain has an amazing part called the Hypothalamus which acts as a natural heater and also as an air conditioner. It keeps a balance between heat and cold and keeps our body at a balanced steady temperature.

In simpler terms, fever is like a defense mechanism that nature has provided in the body to ward off infection and is in fact induced by the infection itself! How strange does nature work, right?

Pet Fever

IS FEVER BAD OR GOOD FOR THE BODY?

In the initial phases of an active infection, yes, fever is a kind of good for the body as few bacteria do not survive at high temperatures. However, it is interesting to note that, there are certain limitations to this. Many adverse effects of fever include –

  1. Increased oxygen consumption along with increased carbon dioxide production.
  2. An increase in energy consumption as metabolism is hastened causes an increased cardiac output.
  3. Decreased appetite and dullness is also evident.
  4. With an increase in temperature, there are chances of multiple organ failure in severe cases.

HOW TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN PYREXIA AND HYPERTHERMIA IN PETS?

Hyperthermia word actually means –

HyperIncreased and  ThermiaTemperature.

If your pet has had a vigorous exercise, body temperature increases tremendously, and so to cool off, the pet pants and drinks water and tries to isolate itself for a while to rest. At that moment, a slight increase in the body temperature above normal is seen and is not a serious concern as the body is trying to reset to the normal body temperature range.

Other possible causes of Hyperthermia may include – Heat Stroke / Drug Allergy / Seizure disorder and Hyper Metabolic Disease.

💡 Watch out – Hyperthermia due to exercise generally lasts only for a couple of minutes to a half-an-hour until the animal cools itself off. If your pet is still uncomfortable showing high temperature, it may be an indication that something else is at play and it could be a fever.

To detect if your dog has a fever or pyrexia, you can check the rectal temperature of your pet with the help of a digital thermometer.

The normal range of rectal temperature is as follows –

  • For Dogs and Cats: 101°-102.5°Fahrenheit // 38.3°-39.2°Celsius
  • Younger animals (puppies or kittens) may show temperature slightly higher than adults i.e around 101.5-103.5°Fahrenheit // 38.6-39.4°Celsius

To help you confirm that your dog is obviously ill due to some underlying reason in the body, apart from an increase in rectal temperature/body temperature do check out for the following symptoms –

  • SYMPTOM #1– LETHARGY

If your pet is dull, unwilling to play, and isolates itself, it can be your first alarm, which says something is wrong with your pet.

  • SYMPTOM #2– ANOREXIA

Your animal rejects food. Their food bowl even though filled with their favorite food like chicken or milk doesn’t impress them. Your animal doesn’t eat or in fact, even do not bother to look at their food bowl at all.

Occasionally your pet may drink water, but in some cases, they even start rejecting water too.

  • SYMPTOM #3 – DEPRESSION

Your pet tends to hide under the bed or starts isolating themselves from the family. Nothing interests them. No toys, and no food. This is an obvious symptom.

  • SYMPTOM #4 – HYPERPNOEA

Hyperpnoea means an increase in the breathing rate. Due to an increase in the body temperature, there is an increase in the breathing rate as the body is trying to get rid of the excess heat through panting or breathing process.

💡 Fun Fact– Humans lose excess of body heat via sweating, breathing/panting mechanism.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF PYREXIA OR FEVER?

There are many reasons why your loving pet is showing pyrexia and classical symptoms of illness.

Here are some of the causes –

There is an active bacterial infection.

Bacteria are microscopic organisms that invade living body cells and multiply to spread further and consume the bodily enzymes, oxygen, or energy reserves to thrive. It causes massive destruction of tissues and localizes in one organ or multiple organs or on the body surface depending upon the type of bacteria affecting your pet.

Infectious diseases such as systemic bacterial infections or bacteremia i.e. bacteria being detected in the blood (from any source in the body) can cause a response in the pet’s body as fever since the pet’s body is trying to fight off these foreign bacteria.

Examples include leptospirosis, pyometra, gastritis, enteritis, or abscess formation in some body parts.

💡Fun Fact – The body tries to ward off infection by increasing body temperature since most of the bacterial agents cannot survive in high temperatures.

However, it is interesting to note that – not all bacterias die within the increased body temperature and a prolonged period of high fever is dangerous to a pet’s body.

Viral Infections

Just like bacteria, the virus too induces Pyrexia. Since the virus is also a foreign object to the body, the host immunity system gets activated to work against these organisms.

Examples – Parvovirus, Adenovirus, Poxvirus

Fungal Infections

Fungi are also the microscopic organisms that are capable of causing pyrexia due to their ability to destroy host cells triggering an immune response.

Examples of Fungal organisms include aspergillus, candida species, etc.

Protozoal infections

Protozoa too are a kind of microorganisms that target certain specific body organs or systems.

For example, Entamoeba targets the intestines and causes loose motions or diarrhea with severe pain in the abdomen. Similarly, there are many such protozoal organisms such as Theileria, Leishmania that triggers pyrexia.

Inflammatory Diseases

Inflammatory diseases refer to the inflammatory conditions of one or many tissues of various organs, such as hepatitis (inflammation of the liver) or gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestine), or pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) which also can induce body response in form of pyrexia.

HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY PET IF THEY HAVE FEVER?

  1. In case the fever is nonspecific and persistently high, your vet will try to figure out the cause and give your pet the conventional treatment to treat the underlying cause of the fever.
  2. You can try to bring the temperature down by applying the water-soaked towel or cotton balls around the ears and paws.
  3. Ensure that your pet has access to fresh water and encourage them to drink enough water (in case they’re anorectic).
  4. Monitor your dog closely and visit the vet in case the fever recurs even after the initial treatment.
  5. There are often certain cases in dogs, where the fever is non-specific i.e. we do not know why our pet is having a fever. This is medically termed as “FUO – Fever of Unknown Origin.”

WHAT KIND OF FOOD IS PREFERRED WHEN MY PET IS SICK HAVING PYREXIA?

Food that is easily digestible, light to the body yet, nourishing at the same time must be preferred.

We have to ensure that our beloved pet is given the utmost love, care, and attention when they are sick. So along with their normal packaged food, you can try out these other options too.

In case your pet is eating little food, here’s what you should do –

  1. Do not give him/her fried oily or spicy food as we humans eat.
  2. For pet dogs kept on a veg diet, milk mixed with a little turmeric can be offered in small quantities.

💡 Fun Fact – Turmeric is an ancient ayurvedic herbal medicine that is known for its magical properties of boosting immunity, anti-inflammatory actions, anti-bacterial actions, and many more! In Hindi or local language, it is known by the name ‘Haldi’.

  1. In general, pets should be offered chicken soup and rice with small chicken pieces in it.
  2. You can even boil pumpkin and mix it with the rice containing the chicken soup.

💡 Fun Fact –  Pumpkin contains vitamin E, vitamin B6, folate, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium, copper, and manganese.

  1. Chicken sprinches – you can take a chicken piece and shred it and offer the shredded pieces to your pet.
Dog Homeopathic Medicine

TREATMENT AND MEDICAL MANAGEMENT OF PYREXIA-

Conventionally, the protocol that is followed for pyrexia is –

  1. Your vet will suggest certain blood tests to check out the blood picture to rule out any certain underlying infections.

For example, CBC, LFT, KFT, serum biochemistry tests can be done. To rule out any other causes, further advanced tests may be conducted based on the blood profile obtained in the previous tests.

  1. Antibiotic regime – for a minimum period of 5 days, antibiotics are given according to the kind of infection/abscess detected.

Antibiotics are medicines that fight and kill the bacteria which are multiplying and damaging the body tissues and cells.

  1. Supportive therapy – if the pet does not consume even the water, suffering from diarrhea or vomitions, weak even to walk, then, your vet may suggest fluid therapy to your pet dog.

This fluid saline brings back the normal fluid balance of the body and prevents the organ system or the entire body in general from getting dehydrated and going into a shock-like state.

Fluid saline in severe anorectic cases can be added with B-complex vitamins, calcium supplements, multivitamins, liver tonics, etc., according to the severity of the condition of the pet.

Where the tonics help to regularise the normal systemic functions like digestion, defecation, etc., multivitamin syrups or tablets help to increase immunity and fighting back the system of the body.

Do you feel that your dog is showing discomfort and joint pain : Homeopathy can help

Rheumatoid Arthritis in Dogs

Arthritis is an inflammation of joints that 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.

Dr. Amit Kumar Tripathi, Veterinarian

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 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.

WHAT ARE THE 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.

HOW CAN IT BE DIAGNOSED?

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.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT PROTOCOL?

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.

Cutaneous symptoms like hyperkeratinization of footpads making them hard, the dog experiences difficultly in walking on hard objects leading to lameness.

Does an affected dog recover from distemper?

Recovery from distemper depends upon your dog’s immune response. Distemper is fatal in almost 50% of the cases. Dog’s with weaker immunity and health may not survive. Anti canine distemper serum may be administered as soon as possible to safeguard the life of the patient. Using the  Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine STRESSZA 30ml,  @ 20 drops three times a day also helps a lot.

How does a dog get affected by Canine Distemper?

Distemper is an infectious viral disease. The transmission of the virus is airborne through droplets of secretions and excretions from an infected dog. A healthy dog picks up the infection through these droplets and the disease may be indirectly transmitted through the ingestion of the contaminated food and water.

How common is Canine Distemper?

Distribution of Canine distemper disease is worldwide but because of the widespread successful vaccinations, it is much less common than it used to be in the 1970s.

It is still common in areas where the vaccination rate is not so high and where stray dogs have not cared about.  Even in recovered dogs, the virus is still active and can be transmitted to healthy ones. Vaccination is the only best option to prevent canine distemper virus in healthy dogs.

Puppies and old aged dogs, which are not vaccinated are easily prone to infection of distemper. Homeopathic Veterinary medicine CANASULE No. 1  can be very useful to boost the immunity of your pet to fight against this distemper disease.

Can a vaccinated dog be affected with distemper?

If the immunity and the health status of the dog are very weak or if the vaccination of the dog is not done in a proper with the exact dose or the quality of vaccine is not maintained or the vaccination is not done at the correct age, then your dog is posed to the threat of distemper.

What should we feed a dog affected by distemper?

We must feed a semi-solid soft or liquid diet to the dog suffering from distemper. The balance of water, electrolytes, and probiotics in the body should be maintained by feeding curd. If the dog is unable to eat by itself, assist it by manual feeding with a 20 ml syringe. If the dog is suffering from vomitings and diarrhea then infusion of fluids is a must with the consultation of the doctor.

What care should be provided to a dog suffering from distemper?

As soon as possible isolate the dog from other healthy dogs if you have any.  Immediate fluid therapy, B complex infusion, and vitamin C to boost immunity can help a lot. Timely treatment of neurological symptoms is a must.

Provide good care and comfort to your dog. The animal should be free from ecto and endoparasites. For speedy recovery use Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine Drops STRESSZA 30ml.  @ 20 drops two to three times a day for an adult dog.

How long does an affected dog live with distemper?

In the case of dogs affected with distemper, fever recurs between an interval of 11 -12 days (biphasic fever). The first phase of fever continues for 96 hrs. So, the dog may suffer from distemper for a period of 20 -25 days. If the affected dog is once recovered then it survives for many coming years with some neurological problems like muscular spasms, muscle twitching, etc. If unfortunately, the dog doesn’t recover, then it may die within 10 – 15 days of the illness period.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicines STRESSZA 30ml  @ 20 drops three times in a day in an adult dog is the best available medicine for better results.

Is distemper worse than a parvoviral infection?

Distemper is a more serious condition than parvoviral infection. Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis is common in both diseases, but in the case of distemper, inflammation of the spinal cord, brain, central nervous system, and inflammation of the respiratory and urinary tract epithelium is more severe. So, the health condition of the dog worsens in distemper disease than parvoviral infection.

Do aged dogs need distemper vaccination?

Yes! Even in the aged dogs, distemper vaccination is very much necessary because immunity weakens with the progression of age, which further increases the chances of infection in the aged dogs. Using the Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine CANASULE No. 1 30 ml. @ 20 drops three times a day for an adult dog helps a lot with this condition.

What is the viability of the Distemper virus outside the host?

Distemper virus remains viable at 25 0C for 7 to 8 days and at 4 0C for 7 to 8 weeks.

How painful is distemper to dogs?

Distemper is very painful in dogs. Dogs suffer a lot from the inflammation of the respiratory system, urinary system, and hyperkeratosis thus known by the name hard pad disease. Difficulty in walking that progresses to lameness is common in these dogs.

Can a dog survive distemper without treatment?

A dog infected with the Distemper virus is difficult to survive without treatment. All the conditions of hemorrhagic enteritis, respiratory, and urinary tract infections cause serious secondary bacterial infections that can put a dog’s life at stake.

You can give Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine drops STRESSZA 30 ml @ 20 drops three times in a day for an adult dog.

What are the different stages of distemper?

Distemper progresses in two stages:

In the first stage, symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, nasal and ocular discharge, vomiting and diarrhea, difficulty in breathing, pneumonia, hyperkeratosis (hard pad), inflammation of the brain, and spinal cord.

In the second stage, symptoms worsen affecting the central nervous system causing convulsions, fits, head tilt, circling movement, increased salivation, partial or complete paralysis, muscle spasms, and at last death of the dog.

What is the incubation period of distemper?

The incubation period of distemper is 1-2 weeks or 7-14 days.

How do you test for distemper?

We can perform blood tests like CBC. If the test results show lymphopenia, the chance of distemper is high. Lymphopenia is a special clinical finding in distemper. For confirmation, you can perform the Rapigen distemper Ag test by Ag test kit (specimen can be serum, plasma, or the eye mucosa).
