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. 

Diseases that can be treated with homeopathy

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.

Pet Supplement for Dogs & Cats

The oral Cavity, Teeth, Gums, an intricate part of the digestive system is however also one of the lesser-acknowledged parts of the organ system. Teeth and gums are very essential for survival however, we tend to ignore or not give enough attention to this system. The reason stays unknown. Did you know just like we humans have various teeth problems, gum inflammation, and decay-related problems, our pets too tend to suffer from various teeth ailments? It is interesting to note that teeth-related problems are comparatively common in pets and are typically manifested as halitosis or bad breath initially. The intricacies of this little system are amazing and astounding. In todays’ blog, let us uncover the world of a buccal cavity or the oral cavity, the problems pertaining to teeth-gums, and some interesting facts about this part of the digestive system.

THE TEAMWORK OF TEETH:

Teeth [Singular- Tooth] is medically defined as the hard, resistant structures which occur on the jaws and in or around the mouth and pharynx areas of vertebrates. [Vertebrate word refers to all the living beings who have a Vertebral Column or spinal cord surrounded by bone or cartilage.] Teeth are extremely essential for survival as it acts as a grinder which allows the food boluses to be broken down into smaller morsels or pieces which ultimately can be easily gulped and digested. Teeth and tongue in harmony act as a good mixer + grinder as it mixes the food particles with saliva [which is again very important for digestive purposes] and grinds the particles into finer particles. With the surface area of food particles being increased due to its’ breakage into pieces, the digestive enzymes can easily act on them to digest them. Larger particles are comparatively difficult to digest and assimilate, also it requires more time to digest as compared to its counterpart.

The teeth as a whole unit work in harmony. There are 4 types of teeth that are found in pets- i] The Incisors, ii] the canines, iii] the pre-molars and iv] the molars.

Incisors as the name suggests are used for incising the food. [Incising means to cut.] Dogs usually have 3 incisors on each side of the cavity and in total 12 Incisor teeth in the entire buccal cavity. Cats too have a similar amount of teeth like dogs.

The next bunch of teeth is the canines. The name itself hints towards the family ‘Canidae’ Canidae is the biological family name of canids or dog-like carnivores. This bunch of teeth is extremely important for carnivore-family belonging cats and dogs as they are essentially hunters or carnivorous [meat-eaters] in nature. These teeth have a tearing ability, as they facilitate the carnivores to tear through meat or their prey’s flesh. With years of modern evolution, our dogs and cats have evolved to have canine teeth which are not extreme in nature. Due to domestication, the need for hunting or preying has decreased and thus the canine teeth which a lion, a tiger, or a wolf has are much more lethal and are quite different than our pet dogs and cats. Our pets have canines that are not that sharp all thanks to the history of domestication and evolution. There are 4 canine teeth in dogs and cats.

The Pre-Molars and the Molars are again another bunches of teeth that are helpful in grinding the food boluses into smaller parts. There are around 8 premolars in both the upper and lower jaw. Also, there are around 6 molars in each upper and lower jaw.

All these teeth although having a different style of arrangement and growth are essential for optimal chewing, cutting, grinding, and tearing food particles. Thus this is a good example of teamwork exhibited by our teeth.

THE TOOTH TROUBLE:

Now that we have our basics clear about various roles and types of teeth, let us now look at various health problems our pets’ teeth, gums, and oral cavity might face.

 

  1. DENTAL TARTAR

Dental tartar is something that accumulates on your pets’ teeth when the dental plaque is not removed for a considerably long time thus hardening to form tartar. Dental plaque is the combination of food debris and bacteria. When teeth are not cleaned regularly or frequently, the food particles end up sticking and accumulating on the canines, molars, premolars and remain stuck there for a long period of time. These stuck pieces or accumulated food particles end up attracting bacterias which makes the situation worse. Thus, dental plaque continues to accumulate and mineralize to transform into calculus or tartar which is rough and porous and grows above or below the gum-line.

 

FEATURES:

  1. Halitosis or offensive smell from the mouth
  2. Yellow- Brown deposit seen on teeth
  3. It might end up causing gum related infections
  4. It may cause gingivitis
  5. It might loosen the tooth and
  6. Eventually, the affected tooth may be lost permanently.

 

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

  1. Remove the plaque as early as possible.
  2. Use dental dog toothpaste and brush to clean the teeth
  3. Rub cheek pouch and gums with your fingers or with the soft corner of the brush to ensure overall cleaning
  4. Dental treats can be used

 

THIS WILL HELP YOU TO –

  1. Kill bacteria
  2. Reduce plaque
  3. Prevent the formation of tartar in the mouth
  4. Reduce halitosis

2. PERIODONTAL DISEASES: GINGIVITIS AND PERIODONTITIS

If the dental issue of plaque goes unnoticed or if the condition starts aggravating, there is a good chance that it might lead to various periodontal diseases. The progression of disease occurs as follows:

i] There is plaque formation

ii] There are sloughed epithelial cells

iii] Various gram +ve bacterias such as the cocci could be found.

Iv] loosening of tooth and loss of tooth

Periodontal disease is a slow, insidious disease that affects the following parts of the teeth-

  1. The bone socket
  2. The alveolus
  3. The attached gingiva [gums]
  4. The free gingival margin and
  5. The periodontal ligament

 

This disease has 4 stages of progression-

Stage 1: Gingivitis [inflammation of gums] due to plaque formation and lack of home care.

Stage 2: Early Attachment loss ie. The tooth may become loose due to the infectious bacteria and subsequent gingivitis

Stage 3: Moderate Attachment Loss ie. There is about 25% -30% loosening of the tooth. This is due to the concurrent gingival recession

Stage 4: Severe Attachment Loss where there is about >50% of loosening of the affected tooth.

 

SIGNS AND FEATURES:

  1. Your dog may avoid eating hard foodstuff such as dry dog food.
  2. There is extreme pain and burning sensation in the tooth
  3. Formation of abscess in gum or jaw
  4. There may be weight loss [due to reluctance/avoiding eating food]
  5. Your pet may avoid getting their face touched as it pains/hurts around the affected tooth area.

 

THE TREATMENT PROTOCOL INCLUDES –

  1. Tooth extraction particularly if the attachment loss is advanced.
  2. Dental scaling or other related dental procedures if the disease is still in its initial phase.
  3. Shifting your pet to a liquid or semi-solid food diet for some time until the problems resolve.
  4. Use of medications in case of an extreme case of inflammation and infection.

THE SOLUTION & CARE TO KEEP TEETH PROBLEMS AT BAY

As mentioned earlier, teeth are extremely important, majorly ignored at times. Teeth are important tools of the digestive system which aids in the process of digestion which we often don’t acknowledge. With problems such as tooth decay, gum-related infection, periodontal diseases, plaque-tartar issue, this process of digestion is adversely hampered. It affects our pets both at the physical and mental levels. It might end up being problematic and painful. To alleviate the pain and suffering, your pet might be subjected to various dental procedures or worse, get their tooth extracted. Prevention is the ultimate key to this problem.

  1. Ensure you clean your pets’ teeth with pet-toothpaste and toothbrush at least once in two days or daily for better results or as directed by your veterinarian
  2. Adopt good hygiene practices
  3. Use of dental treats or chew sticks
  4. Use of Me & My ORALS pet supplement

Me & My ORALS pet supplement is a unique pet supplement for dogs to get rid of offensive breath or halitosis. Me & My ORALS pet supplement is useful in case of pets suffering from soft bleeding gums due to gingival diseases or gingivitis, pus draining gums due to abscess formation as a result of bacterias which get attracted towards stuck food debris and plaque, foul breath, gum boils due to heat, toothache and painful sensation, gums sensitive to cold due to increased sensitivity of the teeth, abscess at the root of teeth, and other related dental symptoms.

 

Teeth are an important, integral, and extremely helpful part of our body. To take care of our pets’ teeth is our duty as vigilant pet parents. Our pets cannot judge between the right and wrongdoings, and so they might end up resisting tooth-brushing sessions, or any dental care sessions. It is your duty as pet parents to train your furry friend in such a way that they accept and recognize these essential steps taken by you for their dental health.

Say bye to foul breath and tooth decay!”

SKIN & COAT – SHINY AND BRIGHT FUR IS ALL WE WANT

blob-article

Homeopathic Medicine for Pets

Fur here fur there,

Fur flying everywhere,

My pet is itchy and shedding too,

Is it the season or infection blues?

Our pets are often adored for their lustrous coat and healthy skin. In fact, our pets’ health is directly reflected in their skin/fur coats. Yes, it is true. We all love a pet who is healthy, happy with a shiny coat and minimal fur-shedding. What happens is sometimes we may observe our pets shedding their fur, our blankets and clothes are filled with fur right after a tight hug from our furry friend. Is it natural? Do pets really shed a large amount of fur? In today’s blog, let us go behind the scenes and understand the basic physiology and process of skin-fur health management.

THE FUR FACTOR:

We, humans, have hair on our body and this hair has quite a number of purposes to serve. It is one of the defining characteristics of mammals. Hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles found in the dermis [skin]. The major function of hair is to protect the skin [body] from the outside environment as well as serve as an insulating agent. While we humans have evolved in such a way that we wear clothing to protect and keep ourselves warm. Our pets on the other hand have fur instead of hair to serve the same function.

Fur is a kind of thick growth of hair that covers the skin. A different breed of dogs has different fur. In fact, the fur type, form of fur depends upon the environment which that breed of dog faces. For example- Indie breed dogs [Mudhdol Hound, Rajapalliyam, etc] have a rather thin fur coat as India is a tropical country and is predominantly hot and humid. On the flip side, Alaskan Malamutes or Huskies which are native to northern regions of the globe tend to have a thick coat of fur as the atmosphere in Alaska [northern regions] is supremely cold and thus these dogs require a good amount of insulation and protection against adverse climatic conditions.

HERE ARE FEW DOG BREEDS AND THEIR FUR TYPE:

As mentioned above, the environment plays an important role in molding the type of fur your furry friend might have. And thus, according to breeds, fur pattern changes. Here are some of the most common breeds found in India and their fur/coat type.

 

  1. SHORT FUR/COATED DOGS:

These dogs have a very short fur coat.

  1. Some of the Indie Breeds such as-

-Mudhol Hound, Rajapalliyam [Indian Sighthound], Chippiparai, Kanni, Indian Pariah Dogs, Rampur Grey Hound.

  1. Foreign Breed dogs such as-

– Chihuahua, Boston terrier, Dalmation, French bulldog, Greyhound, Mastiff, Boxers, Pugs, Great Dane, Dachshund, Beagles.

 

  1. MEDIUM-COATED DOGS:

These dogs have comparatively more fur coats.

Breeds such as Corgi, Shepherd dogs, Border collie, Indian Spitz dog, Cocker Spaniel, Pomeranian, etc.

 

  1. LONG-FUR DOGS:

They have long fur coats and/or thicker fur coats.

  1. Indie breed such as-

– Bakharwal Dog [native to Jammu Kashmir Ladakh Union Territories], Gaddi Kutta [Gaddi Watchdog] native to northern India, Himalayan Sheepdog, Tibetian Mastiff, Kumaon Mastiff

As these dogs reside in Himalayan areas in the northern part of India, they tend to have a thick coats, long fur to protect them against the chilly atmosphere of Himlayan Areas.

  1. Foreign breed dogs such as –

– German Shepherd, Siberian husky, Alaskan Malamutes, English Setters, Lhasa Apso

FUR FACTOR #2: ISSUES & PROBLEMS

While fur is an excellent insulator and protects the body from all odds, it is also an indicator of your dogs’ health status, while it does add to the beauty of a dog, it is a good reflective mirror that can give you an idea of an underlying issue. All dogs are beautiful and loving creatures, but due to certain skin conditions and disease processes, your pet might experience fur loss, rough coat, dull color, loss of luster, etc. While there are many biological conditions that are at play apart from infectious reasons. Right from nutritional imbalances to hormonal harmony to seasonal shedding changes, let us have a quick look at what exact mechanism works behind keeping our dogs’ fur shiny, healthy and happy.

FUR: A MIRROR REFLECTION OF AILMENTS

  1. INFECTIOUS CAUSES

Bacterial Skin infections are the #1 forerunners that hamper the harmony of skin & fur. Dermatitis is one such condition that affects the skin. Dermatitis essentially means inflammation of the dermis [skin] and this, in turn, could be caused by a variety of causes. Apart from dermatitis, there are other types of bacterial infectious agents that cause pyoderma, folliculitis, etc. Certain ectoparasites too cause loss of fur and dry-scaly skin, for example, Demodex mites and Sarcoptes mites which causes mange. You may observe that there is a definitive pattern of fur loss. These mites-related infections start with the loss of fur from around the eye region and then later on there is diffuse loss of fur along with secondary bacterial infection. Also, during parasitic load, [intestinal worms] there may be rough hair coat, dull colour of fur which could be observed.

Apart from bacterias and mites, another type of infectious agent is the Fungi. These fungi cause redness, loss of chunks of fur from a circumscribed area. It is a well-known fact that these bacterial and fungal infectious agents are opportunistic in nature. That is, bacteria and fungi attack the skin only when they get an opportunity to do so, and this opportunity is offered to them by low immunity. Your dog might have low immunity which could predispose them to various infection-causing agents such as viruses, fungi, bacteria, etc.

 

WHAT HAPPENS HERE?

  1. You may observe your dog is itchy and scratching its bodies against some rough surface
  2. You may observe fleas and ticks [Fleas are a well-known cause of allergic dermatitis]
  3. Loss of fur is evident
  4. You may observe more shedding of fur than usual
  5. The hair coat is rough to touch
  6. The colour of the fur is dull and has lost its lustre
  7. You may observe the pattern of fur loss [ for example only on the tail region or eye region]
Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

2. NON-INFECTIOUS CAUSES

Apart from infectious causes of fur loss, rough coat there are some non-infectious causes too. While major chunks of skin diseases are primary in nature i.e. they are caused due to primary opportunistic bacteria and fungi, there might be other reasons for shedding or fur. It is important to note that, while fur loss may be evident, in non-infectious causes there is less inflammation and more symmetrical loss of fur.

 

  1. NUTRITION & SKIN:

When there are nutritional imbalances, this problem of fur-skin-related issues can arise. Food that has relatively less amount of protein, poor quality of fats, proteins, and less amount of essential fatty acids can predispose your pet to various skin ailments. Zinc particularly is very important in maintaining skin-coat health. Omega-3-fatty acids which are obtained from fish are also important in maintaining skin health.

 

  1. HORMONE HARMONY

Rough hair coat, old age, patchy loss of fur [symmetrical manner], rat-tail appearance of the tail are clear indicators of thyroid hormone-related issues. Your veterinarian might suggest thyroid testing given the age, skin issues, and other concurrent signs observed. While everyone inevitably has to grow old, skin diseases might come into the picture reflective of underlying systemic diseases. Proper diagnosis and treatment are essential for arriving at a good destination of health.

 

  • SEASONAL SHEDDING

While most dogs shed their fur at least once or twice a year, there is nothing to worry about in case you observe more fur loss than before during shedding season. Occasional shedding occurs when fur becomes damaged and thus:  ‘to allow new fur to grow, the old one has to go!’  Shedding does occur when new fur has to grow. Shedding also depends upon the season, health status, and age stage of life; shedding most frequently occurs during or before the summer season since the atmosphere is extremely hot whereas even during June-July there might be increased shedding in response to hot + humid atmosphere. This is totally natural and normal phenomenon observed in dogs and cats and thereby you need not worry about the same. However, if you observe any other concurrent health conditions and skin infections, you might need to give your vet a visit to ensure safety as ‘Prevention is always better than cure. Skin infections and issues should not be taken lightly as they might be secondary to some other health issue.

 

  1. ALLERGIC TWIST

Many types of human foods are forbidden in the dog-cat kingdom, some people might unknowingly offer this foodstuff to them which again does more bad than good. Sweet biscuits or cookies are strictly forbidden and must not be given as they have high sugar content. On the other hand, Indian flat-bread which is made from wheat flour or wheat rotis should not be given to dogs as it may cause gluten allergy in pets and again aggravate the fur-loss conditions. Your pet might be allergic to many types of feedstuffs, and thus, consult your nearest vet and ask them beforehand which type of feedstuff is OK and which ones are strictly contraindicated.

SHINY AND BRIGHT FUR IS ALL WE WANT:

While you as pet parents want the best for your pets, a good hair coat, shiny and bright fur is all that we want! In case of doubts regarding the cause of fur loss, dry coat, itchy and scaly skin, you must visit your nearest veterinarian to ensure that the shedding which your dog/cat faces is 100% natural and seasonal and not due to some infectious agent. In case of infectious skin & coat-related diseases, your veterinarian might suggest some antibiotics for the bacteria, some anti-fungal drugs which act against the fungi, and some supplements for the skin which might include omega-3-fatty acids, zinc, and other such essential elements required for optimal skin. Your veterinarian might also suggest certain dietary modifications, additions, and deletions. They may ask you to add good protein, fat-containing food like eggs, few health supplements that can be added to the normal diet. They may even ask you to delete or remove gluten-containing wheat Rotis and use alternative options like gluten-free bread or rice.

Me & My SKIN & COAT Pet Supplement is a peerless medicine for our pet skin and coat. While there are many reasons behind hair fall, dry skin, itchy and scaly skin, rough hair coat these conditions could be reversed by adopting good sanitation and nutritional practices.

A U-TURN FOR UTERINE PROBLEMS: KEEPING UTERINE PROBLEMS AT BAY.

blob-article

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

Our lives are closely intertwined with those of other creatures around us. We are all in a circle of life where one creature inevitably depends upon another. This is termed as symbiosis- to live in union. One such beautiful example of co-dependency is our relation with the livestock – the cows and buffaloes. We get milk and we process products from milk such as cheese, paneer, ghee, etc. all of this is possible because of our close connection and co-relation with cows and buffaloes. They have played a crucial role in our lives since time immemorial. On the flip side, we provide them with food, shelter, care, and medicine as required. This is a beautiful example of a symbiotic relationship. In today’s blog, let’s have a look at various uterine problems that cows or buffaloes may face and ways through which we can help them.

THE HARMONY OF HORMONES

Hormones are chemicals that all living beings have and they play an essential role in regulating various processes in our bodies. Hormones are integral in so many of your body systems and they regulate a lot of what your body does. Medically, hormones are defined as chemical substances that act like messenger molecules in the body. After being made in one part of the body, they travel to other parts of the body where they help control how cells and organs do their work.

Here are few examples of hormonal role in our body:

    1. Hormones regulate the growth of the body via growth hormones
    2. They aid in sexual functions, right from conception to parturition [birth giving] also, they aid in lactation [milking young new-born baby]
    3. Hormones play an important role in regulating metabolism via thyroid hormones, etc
    4. They also aid in various body systems such as the digestive system, the immune system, the urinary system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory and skeletal systems.

In fact, all our organs, tissues, and cells are inevitably dependent upon hormonal harmony. Hormones thus help our bodies to function normally, properly in perfect union with other hormones. Of course, as mentioned above, these hormones or chemical messengers play an extremely crucial role in uterine problems and their solutions.

Let’s have a look at some of the common uterine problems-

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

UTERINE PROBLEMS: UNEXPECTED CHALLENGE

The uterus is an organ that is present in the female reproductive tract. It is the female reproductive organ that receives the fertilized egg and supports its development during pregnancy. The main function of the uterus is to protect, grow and nourish the developing foetus prior to birth. There are many challenges a farmer could face while rearing livestock for milk and milk products. Major ones include retention of placenta post-birth, habitual abortion, delivery complications, retention of placenta, metritis, pyometra, etc.

 

  1. RETENTION OF PLACENTA

The natural birthing process involves the delivery of the foetus and expulsion of the placenta and other connections, foetal membranes from the uterus. The placenta is a temporary organ that develops in the uterus during pregnancy. This structure provides oxygen and nutrients to the growing foetus and removes waste products from the foetal blood. The placenta attaches to the wall of the uterus and is generally expelled out of the body post-birth.

Normally the placental expulsion takes place within 3-8 hours after delivery of the calf.

Retention of the placenta implies that the placenta which normally should have been expelled out naturally after the birthing process hasn’t been expelled out.  The reason could be the inability of the uterus to contract efficiently, or it could be a sequel to uterine inertia [due to labour stages which lasted for a longer time-span causing the uterus to get tired] or it could be due to premature birth and abortion.  Other causes include advancing age of the cow, various nutritional disturbances and inflammation of the placenta, etc

 

  1. ABORTIONS

Abortions is the termination of a pregnancy by removal or expulsion of an embryo or foetus. It could be because of several reasons like- various bacterial infections such as brucellosis, listeriosis, leptospirosis or viral infections such as bovine viral diarrhoea virus, bluetongue virus, toxins, dietary deficiency of Vitamin A, vitamin E, selenium, and iron. Also, severe stress or environmental stress could eventually lead to abortion. High maternal temperature due to fever may be one of the important factors which induce heat stress.

3. UTERINE INFECTIONS: PYOMETRA, METRITIS, ETC.

Uterine infections such as pyometra or metritis are very important to be noted as they may further complicate the life of the cow. Pyometra is a chronic inflammatory condition of the uterus wherein the uterus is filled with pus. Pyometra is a secondary infection that occurs as a result of hormonal changes in the female’s reproductive tract. There are two types of pyometra:

A] OPEN PYOMETRA: pus will drain from the uterus through the vagina to the outside. Pus or an abnormal discharge is often seen on the skin or hair under the tail or on bedding

B] CLOSED PYOMETRA:  If the cervix is closed, pus that forms is not able to drain to the outside. The bacteria release toxins that are absorbed into the bloodstream.

The factors which pre-disposes the female to pyometra are but not limited to:

    1. ABORTION
    2. PREMATURE BIRTH
    3. TWIN BIRTHS
    4. RETAINED PLACENTA
    5. SEPTIC METRITIS
    6. POST-PARTUM METRITIS
    7. UNHYGIENIC CONDITIONS
    8. INFECTIOUS AGENTS

This increases the chances of invasion of pathogenic bacterias inside the uterus and their chances of multiplication too, increases.

Similarly, metritis is the inflammation of the uterus, which again could be related to bacterial-viral etiologies, abortion, or retained placenta. Yes, all of these conditions could be closely linked to each other.

DIAGNOSIS: AN ESSENTIAL KEY TO TREATMENT

It is very important to understand why the milk production has gone down or why your cattle are unthrifty. The reasons for conception failure, lower milk yield, frequent abortions could be any, and hence these conditions must be diagnosed at the earliest. The diagnosis, however, depends upon multiple factors. The following 3 steps are essential to diagnose efficiently:

    1. Clinically relevant History
    2. Laboratory results and testing [USG etc]
    3. Per-rectal exam

 

  1. HISTORY TAKING

Your veterinarian may ask clinically relevant questions and try to filter out relevant history, thus, let’s look into the signs/symptoms which may be observed:

 

SYMPTOMS

    • Permanent or intermittent purulent discharge is observed by the farmer/owner
    • Cyclic estrous activity may/may not be present [irregular interval]
    • Anorexia
    • Decrease of milk production
    • Dullness/listlessness seen

 

HISTORY: your vet may ask you-

    • About the age of the animal
    • The date of insemination must be noted
    • Cyclicity date/frequency to be noted

 

  1. PER-RECTAL EXAM

On per-rectal examination, your vet might be able to diagnose the Cyclicity, pregnancy stage, etc. cervix, corpus luteum persistence, uterine wall thickness, etc may be palpated and noted. In fact, even early-midterm pregnancy can be diagnosed. This helps us to rule out or rule out the possibilities of a wide range of uterine problems.

TREATMENT: AN EASY SOLUTION

The treatment approaches must be aimed at treating the root cause rather than treating symptoms. Thus, an established diagnosis is important. Your vet may suggest some remedies such as-

  1. Dietary fix

Diet plays an important role in modulating immunity and health, thus, few small changes in diets can help. Better-fed cows have higher fertility and improved conception rate. A good amount of carbohydrates, fats, essential fatty acids, essential minerals like iron, etc play a pivotal role in reproductive health. In fact even vitamins are important in this aspect.

 

  1. Hormonal therapy

Hormone injections of implants or ear tags could be used to keep in check the balance and Cyclicity of the patient. It’s important to note that hormonal therapy must be initiated or stopped or regulated under the guidance of a veterinary doctor as these hormones affect the reproductive health as well as various body systems and thus affecting milking, milk yield, and overall health of the cow/buffalo.

 

  1. Non-Hormonal Therapy: Homeopathic Approach

One such novel approach through non-hormonal therapy is homeopathic medicine- Uterogen. The success of pregnancy facilitated by easy parturition depends on the hormonal balance and their regular release. During pregnancy, hormones work on the principle of check and release phenomenon. It is important that this phenomenon or process is maintained so that all the necessary hormones are activated at the right time. So the entire period between conception and delivery is physiologically balanced by the hormones. The possibility of any type of complication or inconvenience during parturition (delivery) should be minimum and the tonicity of the uterus should be maintained. Uterogen is a non-hormonal formulation that regulates the hormones concerned with pregnancy. Uterogen regulates and balances the Progesterone levels to make the pregnancy safe. Nearing the delivery, it excites the complete process of parturition by reducing the Progesterone levels and increasing the Oxytocin levels with help of the Pituitary gland which stimulates and produces the Oxytocin hormone. Oxytocin with the help of Gonadotropic hormone completes the process of parturition and later stimulates the prolactin hormone so that there is normal milk yield. Uterogen mediates this complicated process as a non-hormonal indicator and catalyst. In this way, all the hormones are released one after another as per the cycle automatically.

“A MULTI-PURPOSE UTERINE REMEDY” UTEROGEN regulates the process of pregnancy till delivery, therefore the risk of abortion is minimized. Other conditions for which this remedy can be used are:

    • Uterogen helps with safe delivery.
    • Uterogen maintains the hormonal tonicity of the uterus resulting in the release of hormones sequentially as required.
    • Uterogen is helpful in expelling the placenta, decreasing the possibility of metritis or pyometra, and cure the complications of delivery and avoid infections.

 

Thus, there might be some instances where your cow might face uterine problems, which could lead to dropping in milk yield, abortions, health issues, infections, but these are easily curable and preventable by adopting simple approaches, by changing diet, antibiotics for infectious causes [metritis, pyometra, etc] or by hormonal therapy or via novel homeopathic remedies. Let us show a U-TURN to all uterine problems by being vigilant and adopting good rearing practices.

Pet Supplement for Dogs & Cats

Vigour, Liveliness, Enthusiasm! Today is all about vitality and strength. Vitality is defined as the state of being strong and active. We often look at our pets and think, “Wait, where did my pet get so much energy from- to play all day and night?” True, we all love a happy positive spirited pet. As a matter of fact, we love a happy energetic and enthusiastic personality regardless of species. We especially are very fond of puppies who are a big bundle of joy, and in fact, they have the most amount of enthusiasm and energy. Sometimes they seem a bit off or dull. The reasons behind dullness or loss of strength or loss of vigour are manifold. In today’s blog, let dive into the ocean of strength and vigour. Yes, today we will understand vitality in pets and the multifaceted reasons behind any abnormal behaviour. Why is my dog so upset? Is he sad? Why is my pet so dull? Why is my pet howling or moaning? If you have ever had such doubts, you have come to the right place, let’s uncover the knowledge of vital strength!

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

VITALITY: THE STRENGTH AND ENTHUSIASM

Vitality is a kind of life force that is manifested in terms of happiness, vigour, strength and enthusiasm as a whole. It is in fact measured in terms of ‘Liveliness’ which means how active they are in terms of living. Wait, this is kind of confusing? How do we measure liveliness?

Liveliness or vitality is seen in behaviour. Yes, you can observe and measure liveliness or vitality in terms of how your pet behaves, whether or not that behaviour is abnormal and if so, how abnormal or ‘different’ is my pet acting.

Vital energy is also termed as the life force which is an essential element of life, and good health or rather perfect health is the fine balance of this vital energy. This vital energy flows within the living organisms and helps to maintain balance amongst psychological, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Whether my pet is strong or weak is based upon this – The Vital Energy. Most of our energy is derived from vitality or vital power more than muscles. You may have observed instances where a young dog or small-breed dog overpowers bigger, muscular dogs. Why does this happen? Of course, self-confidence comes into the picture here which is again a facet of vitality. The strength of vitality is one of the key strengths that are most correlated with happiness and wellbeing. There are many different types of strengths here are some examples:

    1. Curiosity
    2. Interest
    3. Hope
    4. Optimism & Positive outlook
    5. Gratitude
    6. The capacity of loving

CORE OF VITALITY

  1. We have heard about boosting vitality by boosting immunity. In fact, vitality is like a building that has immunity as its foundational base. This building also possesses certain pillars of which there are 5 core pillars. These pillars are very essential to make a healthy living being. Here are 5 most important pillars of vitality:
    1. Nutrition
    2. Exercise
    3. Sleep
    4. Resilience and Stress- free environment
    5. Connection & Bonding

Let us have a quick look into how these pillars strengthen vitality building.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

1. NUTRITION

Nutrition is defined as the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses them, and also includes the relationship between diet, health, and disease. We all know the importance of good nutrition in our well-being and health. In fact, many diseases can be kept at bay with good nutritional practices. Good fats, carbohydrates, proteins along with a balanced amount of minerals and vitamins are very essential to build vigor and boost vitality.

Vitamins and nutrients help to improve energy. Mineral depletion can result in chronic fatigue and depression as a result causes depressed immunity which essentially means vitality is hampered. Zinc, magnesium, Calcium, Iron are some of the important minerals useful in building vitality.  Certain vitamins like B complex vitamins are well-known for their role in boosting energy. Some other vitamins such as vitamins C and E, and vitamin D are also extremely helpful. A certain variety of plants or herbs too are helpful in boosting vitality, for example- Basil [Hindi- Tulsi], Curcumin [Hindi- Haldi] has a similarly wide range of health benefits.

2. EXERCISE

Exercise plays a huge role in building immunity in your pets. Series of regular exercise enhances immune response. However, it’s important to note here that overexertion or strenuous exercise result in oxidative damage to the cells and will have a backfire effect, increasing the susceptibility to infections.

Anything in excess is harmful thus, regular walks, regular exercise are important. Consistency is the key. Remember Quality of exercise is much more important than the quantity of exercise. Also, not every pet or every dog will have the same levels of exercise needs.

Here’s what you can do –

  1. Daily walks 2-4 times per day to refresh them and give them relief from holding their bladder.
  2. Playing with ball/toys
  3. Running in the backyard
  4. Going on hikes or short jog
  5. Toys and play area for puppies and kittens

It is important to note that, never to exercise your pets immediately before or after food as again it will have harmful effects on your pet’s system. Exercise should always be moderated and done in proper quantities.

3. SLEEP

Sleep or rest is very important as it helps with cognition, concentration, productivity, energy conservation, and modulation of immune responses, performance, vigilance, disease, and psychological well-being. Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. Sleep is involved in the healing and repairing process. Sleep is also very important for boosting Immune System.

4. RESILIENCE AND STRESS-FREE ENVIRONMENT.

Resilience is the ability to mentally or emotionally cope with a crisis or to return to pre-crisis status quickly. This essentially is in-built most of the time and is also built up while facing stress.  Sudden stress will lead to the release of adrenaline that will suppress the immune response. Long-term stress causes the release of cortisol, which is also immunosuppressive at high levels. Any kind of physical or emotional stress affects your pets adversely, for example – a sudden change of atmosphere and environment, severe weather changes (extreme high temperature, extremely low temperature), traveling, excessive handling, trauma, illness, pregnancy, boarding, etc.

5. CONNECTION AND BONDING

Bonding is the process of the development of a close, interpersonal relationship. A strong bond forms the foundation of your entire relationship with your dog. It is one of the important pillars of boosting vitality as it improves mental and psychological well-being which in turn improves the physical well-being of your pet. Connecting and bonding are thus crucial for building vitality. You can connect and bond with your pets by doing various activities such as playing fetch, going on hikes or short walks, talking to them, praising them, spending some quality time with them. This process helps your dog feel refreshed and energetic.

  1. Routine Deworming

It is a good practice to follow the deworming schedule as prescribed by your Vet. Generally, adults are dewormed once every 3 to 4 months as it prevents scope for any endoparasitic infections such as tapeworms, roundworms etc.

  1. Vaccination

We must follow this yearly vaccination schedule to prevent many of the notorious diseases such as gastrointestinal infections, etc

COUGH & COLD: RESPIRATORY DISTRESS PUT TO REST

blob-article

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

One thing which both pet parents, as well as our pets, dread is the flu season; sneezing, coughing, and of course, having respiratory distress. Have you ever wondered, why exactly do we get sick? What exactly causes coughing? Coughing and sneezing are a very natural mechanisms to get the irritant out of our respiratory system, but sometimes the coughing and sneezing mechanisms are intertwined with the mechanism of our body to help get rid of pathogens!

Also, not every cough is related to flu. As there are many other reasons too.

Do not worry, through this blog let’s have a look at what goes behind the scenes- why my pet has a cough & cold and what can we do to help our pets.

WHAT IS COUGHING?

A cough, also medically termed as ‘tussis’, is a voluntary or involuntary act that clears the throat and respiratory or the breathing passage of foreign agents such as microbes, pollutants, irritants, fluids, and mucus. It is a rapid expulsion of air from the lungs, as a reflex action or deliberate action.

COUGHING & ITS IMPORTANCE

There are minute intricate systems that work hand in hand to help our bodies stay fit and fine. One such system is the physical barriers such as cilia/ hair/ etc which are present on the mucous membrane of the nose which helps prevent the pathogen from entering the body. On irritation of these, there is reflex sneeze which expels the pathogen out. However, this is just a tiny example of what our body is capable of doing! Let’s now understand what is coughing and its importance.

  1. Defense Mechanism

Cough helps and aids the body to get rid of pathogens [which causes diseases] by providing protection and also aids in clearing the airway [trachea-bronchial tree]

 

  1. Fight against Pathogen

The coughing mechanism of our body is helpful in hinting at a probable infection. As the infection rises, there is more cough and cold as the body is trying to compensate and fight against the micro-organism. On the flip side, as the infection falls, or as the immunity builds, the cough and cold levels start dropping down, which again helps us to realize, that infection has been cured or minimized to a greater extent.

 

  1. Coughing can transmit Pathogens

Coughing and sneezing although normal has the capability to transmit bacterias, viruses [that is if the root cause of coughing is indeed a disease-causing pathogen]. Although, normal sneeze and cough due to allergens [dust, dander, allergy-causing items] may not particularly pose a threat of transmitting any bacteria/viruses.

For example: If a Dog or a puppy has Kennel Cough disease. One of the most common culprits for kennel cough is a bacterium called Bordetella bronchiseptica, although the coughing could be triggered due to viruses as well such as Canine Adenovirus, Influenza Virus, and Parainfluenza Virus.

If a healthy dog comes in contact with a coughing dog that has been diagnosed with kennel cough, it’s pretty obvious that the healthy dog might get an infection. It’s important to note that to prevent this from happening, always routinely vaccinate your dogs against such viruses, so that immunity builds up and your dog has less chances of falling seriously ill.

pet supplements

Tip – A persistent cough during the evening or night hours indicates heart problems [Serious and life-threatening conditions such as pulmonary embolism or Congestive heart Failure] so it’s best to get your pet diagnosed at the earliest for any doubts about the cause of coughing/wheezing.

CAUSES OF COUGHING: BEHIND THE SCENES.

 

Let’s dive into the topic, why exactly coughing happens, what causes it and what goes wrong.

 

  1. THROAT CLEARANCE: A NORMAL MECHANISM

Coughing is the main standard method of clearing the throat and trachea. What exactly happens is whenever your pet’s airways become clogged with mucus or foreign particles such as smoke or dust, the body tries to remove it out as quickly as possible through coughing. It is a reflex reaction that attempts to clear the particles from the tract to make breathing easier.

Usually, this type of coughing is relatively infrequent, however, coughing might continue to increase if the exposure to irritants such as smoke/dust is not removed at the earliest. It could be noticed that pets, whose owners are chronic cigarette smokers, can also end up coughing.

 

  1. ALLERGIES

Allergy is caused due to abnormal response of the immune system. There is some trigger that initiates the ‘Anti-Foreign Body Mechanism’ inside the body. This ‘Anti-Foreign Body Mechanism’ is nothing but the immune system which works 24×7 throughout our life to protect the body from harmful substances.

Allergy Is such a condition where the body and its immune system exaggeratedly acts to a rather harmless environmental substance such as dust particles, or pollen, etc. these allergy-causing substances are referred to as allergens in medical terms. Yes, it’s possible that your pet might be allergic to certain foodstuffs as well, which might manifest differently. Coughing and sneezing is a very common manifestation of allergic reaction.

One of the causes of coughing could be asthma, which is typically related to allergens. However, asthmatic coughing involves wheezing, which makes it easy to identify. Asthma attacks in dogs are caused by an allergic reaction and often result in airway inflammation. It causes constriction and spasms of the small airways in the lungs. However, it’s not a frequent cause of coughing but it’s always better to get your pets diagnosed by a trained veterinarian who will suggest you the line of treatment for the same.

  1. INFECTIONS: BACTERIAS, VIRUSES

Coughing can be caused by constant irritation of the airway tract by the disease-causing microorganisms, as well as a hint towards disease progression. Viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites can all infect a dog’s upper respiratory tract, lung tissues, airways, or both airways as well as lung tissues thus, causing the dogs to cough.

Sometimes dogs get bronchitis or pneumonia due to these Bacterias (eg Mycobacterium), Viruses (eg Influenza Virus), and Fungi (eg Aspergillus). In certain rare cases, lung cancer is the diagnosis.

However, your vet will help you to decide the best possible way out by diagnosing the conditions properly.

WHAT SIGNS SHOULD I LOOK OUT FOR?

 

Coughing could be because of the influenza virus causing normal seasonal flu to life-threatening conditions such as CHF or Allergic reaction. It’s best to get your pet diagnosed at the earliest to avoid any future obstacles in the recovery phase.

Keep an eye on –

A. Type of Cough: Dry Cough [without sputum or mucus being expectorated/ coming out from throat or Productive Cough [with sputum/ mucus accompanying coughing]

    1. Dry cough- could be because of asthma, or allergy. Other causative factors involve viral respiratory infections. In kennel cough particularly there is a honking type of coughing.
    2. Productive cough – it could be because of respiratory infections, pneumonia, or bronchiectasis, etc.

 

B. The period of coughing. I.e. whether the cough lasts for a few hours or more than few days, or is worsening as time passes by.

    1. Acute Cough: If the cough lasts only for a few hours and subsides, then it’s an acute cough
    2. Chronic Cough: If it lasts for more than a few weeks it may be a chronic cough due to some health issues.

Generally, allergens cause short-term coughs, even some mild respiratory infections last for a few days. Prolonged coughing needs to be diagnosed thoroughly as the causative factor could be the heart itself, thus proper medical help should be sought out at the earliest to rule out or rule in cardiac complications and cardiac diseases.

 

C. Behavioral Aspects- If your pet is depressed or seems extra tired if they have Anorexia – i.e. they won’t eat.

 

D. Rise in temperature – Keep an eye on whether they have a fever, this could be easily attributed to infectious disease progression.

DIAGNOSIS: FINDING THE ROOT CAUSE.

 

The Diagnosis is generally based on the type of cough, the consistency of it, and the time period your veterinarian will diagnose your pet on basis of some tests

  1. BLOOD PANEL

Your Vet may suggest a routine blood checkups to rule out or rule in Infections. A complete blood count test (CBC) gives a clear picture regarding the blood cells and whether there’s an Infection going on in the body

  1. X-RAY

X-Ray is an extremely handy diagnostic tool as it can check the lung patterns and even the heart for any lesion which may cause coughing in your pets

  1. History

Based on the history of signs and symptoms that your pet may be exhibiting, a good diagnosis can be made. Diagnosis is based partly on history as well! Hence it’s essential that you give a proper and complete history of the signs that your pet exhibits.

Ie. If with coughing you notice any other signs and symptoms and if there are any other concerns, which you may have, should be promptly expressed to your Vet.

 

RESPIRATORY DISTRESS PUT TO REST:  TREATMENT PROTOCOLS

 

Treatment is based on diagnosing, thus diagnosis is key. If your pet has coughing due to Respiratory causes your Vet may suggest antibiotics, fluids, and other such medicines for your pet.

In cases of other reasons such as allergies, the coughing generally subsides when the causative irritant is removed (like pollen/cigarette or vehicle smoke, etc)

On the other hand, for coughing caused due to heart problems, the treatment protocol is totally different and focuses primarily on resolving the heart disease to subsequently resolve the coughing problem.

IRON: NO ANAEMIA OR DULLNESS ONLY STRENGTH & ALERTNESS

blob-article

pet supplements

There are many minute intricate network systems in our body and one of them is the organs and blood network. Blood, the life-giving force which carries oxygen to all minute tissues of organs and also carries waste products from tissues to the lungs or excretory organs to expel out of the body. Blood vessels along with the heart as a system is termed as the Cardio-Vascular System, and is extremely important system. Sometimes, these systems may malfunction due to some kind of foreign antigen or pathogens which may cause life-threatening infections and cause the entire system to be deranged. As we know our Cardio-vascular system particularly is extremely important core system and any malfunctioning bits of this system may prove life-threatening.

Today let’s dive into the world of this beautiful system as today we will touch upon one important aspect of this system- Anemia and Iron deficiency. What is anemia? How does it manifest? What are the signs and symptoms observed? Let’s dive straight into the topic.

ANEMIA: WHAT IS ANEMIA?

We have all come across the term ‘Anemia’ which essentially means a condition in which the blood doesn’t have enough healthy red blood cells.

In medical terms, it is defined as a decrease in the total amount of red blood cells (RBCs) or hemoglobin in the blood, or a lowered ability of the blood to carry oxygen. RBC’s or the red blood cells are a kind of cell which carry or deliver oxygen to the body tissues—via blood flow through the circulatory system whereas hemoglobin is a protein found in the red blood cells that carries oxygen in your body

Fun fact: The blood has red color due to Hemoglobin!

REASONS BEHIND ANEMIA

Anemia as such is a disease which has many reasons behind it. It itself hints at some infectious process or any metabolic or nutrients derangementsuch as lowered levels of B-vitamins, iron level imbalance. As mentioned before,it has multiple facets. Let’s understand the significant root causes of anaemia

There are many reasons for anaemia the significant ones include:

  1. Dietary Deficiency of Iron, Vitamin B complex, Folic Acid
  2. Increased Destruction of RBCs: Hemolysis due to infection, etc.
  3. Lowered production of RBC: Bone Marrow disorders
  4. Loss of blood: Hemorrhagic conditions
  5. Immune system disorder: Immune mediated haemolysis
  6. Malabsorption of dietary compounds
  7. Infections

Let’s understand these causes of anemia in detail:

 

  1. DIETARY DEFICIENCY& MALABSORPTION

It is also termed as iron deficiency anemia which occurs due to insufficient iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin which is a protein that helps carry fresh oxygen to various tissues and other gases such as carbon-dioxide out of the tissues to the lungs to expel out. It majorly occurs when your body doesn’t have enough of iron in your diet, and without enough iron, your body can’t produce enough of hemoglobin in red blood cells that enables them to carry oxygen (hemoglobin) thus causing series of health issues.

It is also caused due to an ulcer in gastro-intestinal tract which can cause inflammation of the stomach lining resulting in blood loss, which again could be due to many reasons or due to acute blood loss, such as from hemorrhage.

Apart from iron, body also needs folate and vitamin B-12 to produce good and healthy red blood cells. Deficiency of any of these compounds in diet may lead to anemia.

Apart from reduced dietary intake, the issue could also be due to malabsorption of the compounds from the intestines, which leads to a condition termed as pernicious anemia.

  1. INCREASED DESTRUCTION OF RBCs

RBCs can be destroyed due to many reasons the foremost runner of the increased destruction of RBCs are pathogens or blood parasites such as Babesia, Ehrlichia which are known to cause a disease commonly called as Tick Fever or it may be due to an autoimmune problem in which the immune system mistakenly sees your own red blood cells as foreign substances and destroys them. Certain chemicals or toxins e.g., zinc, rat poisons, onions, or garlic can cause immense hemolysis and thus increase the level of RBCs destruction.

 

  1. LOWERED PRODUCTION OF RBCs

RBCs are produced in the bone marrow of long bones.

Diseases and conditions that cause your body to produce less amount of red blood cells include:  Any severe or chronic i.e. long-lasting disease such as chronic kidney or liver disease, aplasticanaemia, or Cancer, chemicals or toxinsautoimmune disease, hypothyroidism may lead to decreased RBCs production

4. BLOOD LOSS

It could be due to any reasons such as ulceration or viral disease which attacks the intestine cells and cause bleeding due to invasive process for example Parvo-viral diarrhoea. It may also be due to hemorrhagic conditions.

 

5. IMMUNE MEDIATED DISORDERS

IMHA or immune mediated haemolytic anemia is a disease in which the immune system reacts against red cells and causes the untimely destruction of RBCs.

Immune system actually is responsible for the killing of non-self-invader cells but due to some deranged mechanism, the immune system acts of self RBCs. As a result, red cells are destroyed thus resulting in anemia causing the oxygen delivery to be greatly reduced.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

WATCH OUT FOR THESE SUBTLE SIGNS

Anemia as a disorder can’t be quickly noticed due to the subtle nature of the disease process. We often observe signs and symptoms after a considerable amount of time has passed. Sometimes we are able to observe the signs in initial phase of disease process.

  1. Tiredness & Lethargy

Lethargy is a lack of energy and enthusiasm which can be a non-specific sign as many of the disease processes do make your pet tired and dull.

Also, your pet may exhibit signs of getting tired quickly and may seem to be bit dull after short walks or in general exhibit signs of lack of enthusiasm to play with toys etc.

 

  1. Pale Mucus Membranes and associated CRT

Your vet on check-up may check the mucus membranes of your pet, like for example the gums or inner ear or conjunctiva to check its color. A Pink coloured mucus membrane is considered to be normal and healthy. Whereas, pale mucus membrane often hints at anemia. CRT is a diagnostic aid where your vet checks for the Capillary Refill Time to understand the level of anemia.

 

  1. Your pet may also experience headache due to anemia but again, we rely on the mucus membranes and non-specific signs to understand the reason behind them. It surely is a task but it is often coupled with other disease process too. If your pet has some infection, they may exhibit signs of:

I]vomiting

Ii] Diarrhea

Iii] Anorexia etc.

Often if your pet is diagnosed with tick fever, ulceration, bleeding disorder or haemorrhage etc. it’s pretty obvious anemia will follow.

FIGHTING ANAEMIA: WHAT IS THE PROTOCOL?

Anemia is first diagnosed based on the blood picture. What is a blood picture? Basically, your veterinarian will carry out blood tests: CBC [complete blood count] which gives an idea about the red blood cells [RBCs], white blood cells [WBCs], platelets [thrombocytes]. Any decreased in PCV or packed cell volume can give an indication of the disease or metabolic process. Your doctor will rule out or rule in various causes of anemia, like mentioned: Toxicity, Infections [Tick Fever], aplastic anemia, pernicious anemia [malabsorption] or dietary deficiency of folate, iron, and b-complex vitamins.

The very base of diagnosing is history. Your veterinarian may ask certain questions like-

Is your dog/cat vomiting?

Since when is your pet acting lethargic and dull?

Did you find ticks on the body of your dog?

Is there any diarrhea?

Apart from history taking, your veterinarian shall also carry out the CRT or the capillary refill time test and will also check the mucus membranes such as the gums or ear pinna, or the conjunctiva. This will give a fair idea if your dog/cat is suffering from anemia. Later on, the firm diagnosis will be based on the blood reports which come in.  Apart from CBC or complete blood count, your veterinarian will also suggest LFT/KFT ie. Liver function test and Kidney function test to have a look at how liver and kidney are working, if they’re normal or having some sort of infection, etc.

TREATMENT PROTOCOLS: MEDICINES & SUPPLEMENTS

The treatment is usually based on the disease which has been diagnosed. By treating the root cause of anaemia, or in short by curing disease at the grassroots level will cure the entire disease which manifests on a much larger scale. The treatment for anaemia is thus different for different kinds of anaemia. The disease is one but the path leading to it are different and thus the treatment will obviously vary. For example, if your pet has severe anaemia and is almost life-threatening, a blood transfusion will be needed. Your veterinarian will let you know the protocol for the same. The main purpose is to stabilize the dog while diagnosing the reason behind it.

When a firm diagnosis is made, the treatment may include antibiotics such as doxycycline for tick-fever or infectious causes, corticosteroids, de-worming medications i.e. anti-helminthic drugs like praziquantel, fenbendazole etc. vitamin K1 which is very crucial for controlling haemorrhage in case of rodenticide toxicities, etc thus, the treatment protocol is altered based on the need of the hour.

ME & MY SUPPLEMENT

DIETARY FIX: IRON: NO ANAEMIA OR DULLNESS ONLY STRENGTH & ALERTNESS

 

Anaemia due to deficiency disorders can be fixed by supplementing dietary iron or iron-rich foods such as eggs or chicken liver [protein sources]. Also, there are iron supplements to aid the recovery process and help the body heal faster to cope up with anaemia. Me & My Iron supplement is one such supplement that helps in aiding the body suffering from deficiency disorders. It is a nutritional supplement used in cats and dogs to treat iron deficiency or anaemia or as an iron supplement, usually in cases of blood loss after a severe injury or any chronic disease.

STRONGER IMMUNITY MEANS LONGER LIFE

blob-article

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

A healthy life means a strong body, stronger health. But did you know, your body is dependent upon its immune system to regain strength? Wait, how does immunity work? How exactly is immunity related to the health and welfare of our body? If immunity means a better life and good health, is there any way out, to build immunity in my furry friend? How do I help my dog to build a stronger body and health? If you too, had questions regarding immunity and health, you have come to the right place, through this blog, let’s discover the secrets of immunity, how does it work, what exactly is immune-boosters, and how to ensure a happy healthy, and strong life in our Pets.

IMMUNITY: THE FORTRESS OF BODY

Immunity refers to the body’s ability to prevent the invasion of disease-causing micro-organism called pathogens. Pathogens are nothing but foreign disease-causing substances, such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses, which have the ability to make your pet sick. Immunity is like a fortress that protects the body from all ailment-causing germs/micro-organisms. There is a little army of fighter cells in our body called the White Blood Cells which act as fighters against any infection. These little fighters are responsible for the killing, eating (phagocytosis), and discarding most of the disease-causing microorganisms which invade your body. It is a complex biological system that has the ability to recognize whatever belongs to the self [body] and to reject what is foreign to the body (non-self) for example microbes. Immunity is not a complex thing to comprehend, this is simply a fortress with an army of WBC’s- Immune cells to fight infection and protect our organs and body as a whole.

In short, immunity can also be referred to as ‘Fighters for Body’

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

THE FACETS OF IMMUNITY

Immunity has been divided further into categories to help understand its mechanism of action and its role in building a healthy system, let’s have a quick look into the world of immunity.

Immunity can be broadly classified into two categories:

  1. Innate Immunity
  2. Acquired Immunity

 

  1. INNATE IMMUNITY

Innate Immunity is the type of Immunity that is present right from birth. It is the inborn resistance mechanism against disease-causing microorganisms and infections that an individual possesses right from birth, due to their genetic makeup. Innate immunity is the first line of cellular defence which acts against foreign microbes immediately.

This type of immunity is encoded in one’s genes. Genetic immunity protects an organism throughout its entire life. This immunity basically comprises an individual’s natural ability to resist infection.

There are certain physical barriers present in the body which helps to fight against pathogens- The Skin and Mucous Membranes [Mouth, Nose, Conjunctiva, etc.]

The cells responsible for this type of cellular defence are Natural killer cells, macrophages, mast cells, basophils, eosinophils, neutrophils.

This immunity further goes on to activate the acquired immune system to build lasting immunity and further protect the body against invading pathogens.

 

  1. ACQUIRED IMMUNITY

This type of Immunity is however adapted or acquired by an organism after birth via vaccines or exposure to microorganisms. This type of immunity is acquired throughout the lifetime of an individual. This is the second line of defence against pathogens. Acquired immunity is also called Adaptive or specific immunity. As the name suggests, this immunity is acquired or adapted as and when the pathogen attacks the body. The adaptive immune response is specific to the pathogen presented.

The cells responsible for this type of cellular defence are: T and B lymphocytes

THE ROLE AND FACTORS AFFECTING IMMUNITY

Immunity and immune response vary a lot from one individual to another, species to species. It’s a perfect amalgamation of genetic factors and environmental factors. The immune response thus owes the majority of its chunk to environmental factors apart from genetic factors. Let’s understand various factors one by one.

 

  1. AGE: THE MAJOR FACTOR

Age plays the most important role in the immunity of pets. Mostly young and old the extreme ends of the spectrum of the life cycle are particularly vulnerable to infections due to hampered Immunity. Let’s see how. In young puppies or kittens, there is something called maternal antibodies which are present in the milk of the mother. These antibodies are very essential and are meant to protect kittens and puppies from diseases and infections. Thus it’s important to give the puppies and kittens their mother’s milk when they are young. Adequate maternal antibodies are thus essential to prevent severe or chronic illness or death. Mother’s Milk has immunoglobulins (Immunoglobulins have an important role to play in immunity building) which helps your pets immensely.

The younger population of pets like kittens and puppies are at greater risk of infection as they are still building their Immunity up. Certain infections such as Parvo Virus Infection in puppies or Feline Leukaemia Virus in kittens are some of the diseases which affect the younger population as compared to the older ones, this is because the younger animals are more susceptible to infections. Thus, age here is a crucial factor. This is why, we vaccinate our puppies and kittens from 6th to 8th week onwards against various organisms like Parvo Virus, Leptospira, Adeno Virus, etc in puppies through the 9 in 1 Vaccine

While in cats we vaccinate them to build up Immunity against Calicivirus, Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), etc.

These vaccinations are initially given at 6th and 7th week onwards followed by booster doses for the same and then followed by Anti Rabies Vaccine which again builds up Immunity against the deadly Rabies Virus. These vaccination schedules must be followed as it helps to prevent life-threatening conditions since it helps to build up the immunity of the animal.

Annual vaccination is thus done to keep the immunity at a stable level and help your pets to lead a healthy happy life.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine
  1. STRESS & THE ENVIRONMENT

Stress is one of the factors which hampers the Immunity of your pets. Sudden stress will lead to the release of Corticosteroids that will suppress the immune response. Long

Term stress causes the release of cortisol, which is also immunosuppressive at high levels. Any kind of physical or emotional stress affects your pets, for example – a sudden change of atmosphere and environment, severe weather changes (extreme high temperature, extremely low temperature), traveling, excessive handling, trauma, illness, pregnancy, boarding, etc.

Environment plays a crucial role in our pets’ life. The environment contributes to stress as well. If there is poor sanitation or poor Management practices, it might take a toll on the immunity of your pets. For example, an unhygienic dog boarding facility might cause your pet [without adequate vaccination or protection against the same] to contract kennel cough who has been sent to a kennel/ boarding which might harbor the disease-causing pathogens.

 

  1. NUTRITION & SUPPLEMENTS: IMPORTANT ROLE IN IMMUNITY BUILDING

Nutrition plays a vital role in immunity. A diet rich in optimum levels of minerals, vitamins, fibers, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, proteins is important to give your pets all nutrients essential to build up a strong body and stronger immunity.

Here are some nutrients which are important for the development of a normal

Immune response –

Vitamins like: Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, B vitamins (Vitamin B complex) polyunsaturated fatty acids,

Minerals like: Calcium, Copper, Selenium, Chromium, Zinc, etc

Many of these nutrients act as antioxidants which have the ability to protect the immune cells from oxidative damage and help in the building of a strong immune system.

There are certain immunity supplements called ‘Immuno-modulators’ or ‘immunity enhancers’ which along with the food helps in building the immunity up.

What are these supplements? Here is a short FAQ guide on the same:

ROLE OF IMMUNO-MODULATORS: FAQs

  1. What are immune modulators?

An immunomodulator may be defined as a substance, biological or synthetic which can stimulate, suppress which can modulate any component or part of the immune system including both innate and adaptive immunity.

 

  1. How do these immunomodulator-drugs/medicines act?

I] Immunomodulators are responsible for the induction of effective and sustained immune responses against infection or disease-causing pathogens.

II] These medicines also speed up the maturation of immunity during the growth period of puppies and kittens.

III] It helps to modulate immunity and stress caused by external factors.

These drugs basically act as an immunity booster, helping the immune system to help the body in fighting pathogens.

 

  1. What are the types of Immunomodulators?

They are either immune-stimulant [to help build immunity] while some are immune-suppressants [to reduce unwanted immune response as in certain auto-immune diseases such as SLE]

 

Let’s focus on Immune-Stimulant drugs which help build immunity in young growing dogs, cats.

Immune-Stimulant Immunomodulators are those medicines which help the body to enhance the body’s resistance against bacterias, virus, etc pathogens, enhancing the immune response in pets. There are many drugs, which act as immune-boosters, there are many available natural immunity boosters such as Curcuma longa: Turmeric [Hindi: Haldi], Ocimum tenuiflorum: Basil [Hindi: Tulsi], etc.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

Reasons for abdominal discomfort:

There can be countless reasons that your dog may experience abdominal discomfort. The presence of this type of discomfort could be serious, and can quickly lead to a dangerous and life-threatening situation if not addressed immediately. Some of the possible causes are listed below:

  • Intestinal intussusception
  • Pancreatitis
  • Cystitis
  • Peritonitis (inflammation of the abdominal lining)
  • Ischemia (inadequate blood supply to an organ or part of the body)
  • Gastrointestinal obstruction
  • Obstipation (severe constipation)

It’s normal and somewhat common for dogs to eat the stools of another species, but it’s uncommon for adult dogs to eat their own stools or another dog’s stools.  The reasons your dogs are eating stools can be:

  • They are nursing their babies and eat their stools to clean them.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

Treatment for abdominal discomfort :

Treatment will always depend on the cause of abdominal discomfort. If the cause is general, treatment will include intravenous fluids to assure that electrolyte levels are balanced, and nutritional needs are met. Medicines to prevent vomiting or nausea can also be administered. These steps can help to stabilize a pet.

Pain therapy is another important part of the treatment. Gastrointestinal protectants, antidiarrhoeal medicines, and antibiotics (if required) are important, too.

For example, Parvovirus should be treated with intravenous fluids to replace the loss of sodium and potassium, and medicine will be given to control vomiting. In case of life-threatening bloat, the use of intravenous fluids and the passing of a tube through the mouth and into the stomach to release gas should be made. Sometimes surgery is required if the case is of a twisted stomach.

If surgery is essential, for example in a severe case of bloat or a problem like a gastrointestinal obstruction, intravenous fluids for stabilization, pain therapy (analgesics), antibiotics, and supportive care will be part of the treatment protocol.

Calcium Supplementation : Strong Bones, Stronger Pet

blob-article

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

Calcium is well known for its role in building strong bones, but it also performs several other important functions in your dog’s body.  Calcium is a mineral that must be consumed through your dog’s diet, it cannot be made inside the body.  Over 98% of total body calcium is stored in your dog’s bones, which works as a mineral bank. Hence a good amount of calcium supplementation makes the bones of your pet strong and prevents different deficiency diseases like rickets in puppies and osteomalacia in adult dogs. The calcium taken from the diet is absorbed, deposited, and withdrawn from your dog’s bones on a daily basis.

Dr. Sakshi Sharma, MVSc, J&K

Pet Supplement for Dogs & Cats

Why is calcium necessary?

Calcium is an interdependent mineral that works in association with co-factors to deliver its benefits. Calcium, Phosphorus, and Magnesium are primarily responsible for maintaining a healthy bone mineral balance in your dog.

Vitamin D is an essential factor in the absorption of calcium and magnesium. Having the right balance of calcium is necessary for optimum health. Any imbalance in either deposits or withdrawals can cause major health issues. For instance, too little calcium can cause a harmful condition called Hypocalcaemia in dogs.

As a result, calcium will be withdrawn from the bones. Over time, this can result in the weakening of bones and can lead to different bone disorders such as hip dysplasia.  Calcium deficiency can cause general bone and joint weakness, loosening of teeth, pain, and put your dog at high risk for fractures.

 

High calcium levels can also cause serious underlying diseases such as kidney failure, adrenal gland failure, and many other harmful diseases.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

What does calcium do to the body?

Calcium is important for all dogs.  It helps keep your dog’s nails, teeth, and coat healthy. Here are a few other roles calcium plays in your dog’s body.

Calcium is required for:

  • Digestion
  • Blood Clotting
  • Squeezing and Relaxing Muscles
  • Releasing Hormones; Hormone Transmission
  • Proper nerve function
  • Maintaining a regular heartbeat
  • Bone and cartilage formation
  • Skeletal Structure
Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

How to incorporate calcium sources into your dog’s diet?

Dog foods that are sold in the market essentially contain the recommended daily dosage of calcium needed for your dog, in order to be considered complete and balanced. Dog foods are usually the most common source of calcium your dog will receive. However, some natural sources of calcium your dog could receive calcium from are:

  • Vegetables
  • Legumes (Broccoli, Spinach, Beans)
  • Fish (Tuna, Salmon; especially calcium-rich.)
  •  Bone licks
  • Milk
  • Curd
  • Yogurt

Pyometra- an infection of uterus, a serious concern and Homeopathic remedy for pets

blob-article

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

Pyometra is derived from two important terms- “Pyo” meaning pus and “metra” meaning uterus. Thus in its simplest terms, pyometra is an infection of the uterus characterized by the accumulation of pus with the swelling of the walls of the uterus. So in general cases of pyometra are much more difficult to manage than a routine infection.

Infection in the lining of the uterus is established as a result of hormonal changes. Following “estrus” or “heat”, progesterone levels remain elevated for 8-10 weeks and thicken the lining of the uterus in preparation for pregnancy. If pregnancy does not occur for several estrus cycles, the lining continues to increase in thickness until cysts form within it. The thickened, cystic lining secretes fluids that create an ideal environment in which bacteria can grow. Additionally, high progesterone levels inhibit the ability of the muscles in the wall of the uterus to contract, thus the uterus becomes atonic.

Are there other situations that cause the changes in the uterus of a dog?

The answer to it is yes. The use of progesterone-based drugs can do this. In addition, estrogen will increase the effects of progesterone on the uterus. Drugs containing both hormones are used to treat certain conditions of the reproductive system, thus predisposing the pet to this condition. So it is always advisable to consult a vet before administering any kind of hormonal drugs to your pet.

How do bacteria get into the uterus?

The organ cervix is the gateway to the uterus. It remains tightly closed except during heat. When it is open, bacteria that are normally found in the vagina can enter the uterus very easily. If the uterus is normal, the environment is adverse to bacterial survival; however, when the uterine wall is thickened and cystic, perfect conditions exist for bacterial growth. In addition, when these abnormal conditions exist, the muscles of the uterus swell and cannot contract properly. This means that bacteria that entered the uterus cannot be expelled.

Pet Fever

When can pyometra occur?

Pyometra may occur in young to middle-aged dogs; however, it is most common in older dogs. After many years of heat cycles without pregnancy, the uterine wall undergoes the changes that promote this disease. The typical time for pyometra to occur is about 1-2 months following heat.

What are the clinical signs of a dog with pyometra?

The clinical signs depend on whether or not the cervix is open. If it is open, the pus will drain from the uterus through the vagina to the outside. It is often noted on the skin or hair under the tail or on bedding and furniture where the dog has laid. Fever, lethargy, anorexia, thirst, and depression may or may not be present.

If the cervix is closed, the pus that forms is not able to drain to the outside. It collects in the uterus causing accumulation in the abdomen. The bacteria release toxins which are absorbed into the circulation, These dogs often become severely ill very rapidly. They are anorectic, very listless, and very depressed. Vomiting or diarrhea may be present.

Toxins from the bacteria affect the kidney’s ability to retain fluid. Increased urine production occurs, and the dog drinks an excess of water. This occurs in both open- and closed-cervix pyometra.

How to know if your dog has pyometra?

Dogs that are seen early in the disease may have a slight vaginal discharge and show no other signs of illness. However, most dogs with pyometra are not seen until later in the illness. A very ill female dog that is drinking an increased amount of water and has not been spayed is always suspected of having pyometra. This is especially true if there is a vaginal discharge or an enlarged abdomen.

Dogs with pyometra have a marked elevation of the white blood cell count and often have an elevation of globulins (a type of protein produced by the immune system) in the blood. The specific gravity of the urine is very low due to the toxic effects of the bacteria on the kidneys. However, all of these abnormalities may be present in any dog with a major bacterial infection.

If the cervix is closed, radiographs (x-rays) of the abdomen will often identify the enlarged uterus. If the cervix is open, there will often be such minimal uterine enlargement that the radiograph will not be reliable. An ultrasound examination can also be helpful in identifying an enlarged uterus and differentiating that from a normal pregnancy.

Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

How is pyometra treated?

The preferred treatment is to surgically remove the uterus and ovaries. This is called an ovariohysterectomy “spaying”. In this procedure, the cystic ovaries along with the pus-filled uterus are removed out of the abdomen to prevent the spread of infection and illness. Dogs diagnosed in the early stage of the disease are very good surgical candidates. The surgery is only slightly more complicated than a routine spay. However, most dogs are diagnosed when they are quite ill so the surgery is not as routine as the same surgery in a healthy dog. Intravenous fluids are often needed before and after surgery. Antibiotics are given for 1-2 weeks. Postoperative care is equally important.

Can anything else be done for pyometra other than surgery?

There is a medical approach to treating pyometra. Prostaglandins are a group of hormones that reduce the blood level of progesterone, relax and open the cervix, and contract the uterus to expel bacteria and pus. They can be used successfully to treat this disease, but they are not always successful and they have some important limitations.

  • They cause side effects of restlessness, panting, vomiting, defecation, salivation, and abdominal pain. The side effects occur within about 15 minutes of injection and last for a few hours. They become progressively milder with each successive treatment and may be lessened by walking the dog for about 30 minutes following an injection.
  • There is no clinical improvement for about 48 hours so dogs that are severely ill are poor candidates.
  • Because they contract the uterus, it is possible for the uterus to rupture and spill infection into the abdominal cavity. This is most likely to happen when the cervix is closed.
  • The chances of subsequent successful breeding following the treatment is 50-75%.

What happens if neither of the above treatments is given?

The chance of successful treatment without surgery or prostaglandin treatment is extremely low. If treatment is not performed quickly, the toxic effects from the bacteria will be fatal. If the cervix is closed, it is also possible for the uterus to rupture, spilling the infection into the abdominal cavity. This will also be fatal.
