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

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.


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.


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
  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.

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.

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.


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.

Physiotherapy is also one of the ways through gentle massages and movements the joint can be very well managed along with apt and proper medical treatment.

Homeopathy in Veterinary



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.


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


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.


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 –


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


  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.”


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


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.

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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Anorexia in Dogs & Cats FAQs


Anorexia in Pets

Anorexia is a general loss of appetite or a loss of interest in food. To some people, when they hear the word “anorexia”, the eating disorder “anorexia nervosa” comes to their mind, which is a completely different condition from anorexia. 

Anorexia nervosa doesn’t cause the loss of appetite. Pets suffering from anorexia nervosa avoid food. Whereas, pets suffering from anorexia (loss of appetite) unintentionally lose interest in food. Loss of appetite is often caused by an underlying medical condition.

Nervous symptoms include restlessness, excitement, chumpy jaw, excessive salivation and convulsions, epilepsy, chorea (jerky movements of a group of muscles), muscle spasms in lips, cheeks, jaw, head,  neck, and limb muscle.

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?

Homeopathic Remedy of Diarrhoea in Pets


Diarrhea in dogs is a very common condition. Most of the time it is self-limiting, while sometimes, it becomes a serious condition, dogs become ill, and require hospitalization to recover.

Dr. Bhaskar Goel, BHMS

Symptoms and Types of diarrhoea in dogs:

  • More water in the faeces than normal (softer or lose unformed faeces)
  • An increased volume of faeces
  • Shooting faeces
  • Blood or mucus in the faeces. Eg: Bloody diarrhoea can be due to bacterial, viral, verminous or any other cause.
  • Tenesmus i.e., straining to defecate
Other symptoms associated with diarrhoea indicate a more severe condition like:

Vomiting, listlessness, anorexia or in appetite, depression, abdominal pain, fever, weakness, etc.

Diarrhoea may result in the following ways:

Osmotic imbalance

It occurs when the concentration of food molecules in the intestine is too high. Water is drawn into the intestine by these excess molecules, causing diarrhoea in dogs.

Over secretion

It occurs when the intestines secrete too much fluid after being exposed to bacteria, toxins, or parasites.

Intestinal exudation

It is described as a slow oozing of blood fluids through ulcers or other cuts in the intestinal tissue layers. This exudation can be mild or very severe.

Motility disorders

It refers to the condition where the active bowel movements get inhibited due to some reason.  The capability of the intestines to process the ingested food through the peristalsis movements goes wrong. The contraction of the intestinal muscles which facilitate the movement of food for better digestion is known as peristalsis.  This can be in both the ways, either decreased motility or increased motility. In both cases, it may affect the health of the dog.

Following factors can be a cause of diarrhoea in dogs:

  • Systemic illness: eating garbage or spoiled food, inanimate objects consumption, sudden changes in the diet, etc.
  • Drugs and toxins: ingesting foreign bodies (non-food items), intestinal blockage
  • Viral or bacterial or parasitic infestation, pancreatitis, hypersensitive digestive tract, etc.
  • Stress resulting in diseases like Rickettsia (tick-transmitted disease), Fungal diseases, Addison’s disease, liver diseases, etc.
  • Kidney disease
Diagnosis of acute and chronic diarrhoea in Dogs

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

Treatment of Acute Diarrhoea in Dogs

If the dog shows only the mild symptoms, it can be treated as an outpatient, but patients with severe dehydration and vomitings should be hospitalized for fluid and electrolyte therapy. Dehydration can be fatal if the dog is not treated for diarrhoea immediately. If the diarrhoea is mild but the dog has any other signs of illness, hospitalization is a  must. For those pets with a mild illness, home care includes rest, oral medication, and a blended diet of boiled chicken and white rice. Suggesting for thorough rehydration of the pet at home before the discharge is important. Patients with an obstruction or foreign bodies may require surgery to evaluate the intestine and remove the foreign object. Timely deworming of pets should be the concern of the pet owners to avoid diarrhoea of verminous reason.

Swelling of Joints in Pets, Homeopathic cure of Osteoarthritis


Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine

Osteoarthritis is a common problem in dogs, especially in age-old and heavy breeds. Early detection of the problem and initiating the appropriate management at the right time can help the dog to lead an active and quality life. As there is no cure for this progressive condition through conventional treatment, alternative systems like homeopathic medicine are providing the best results.

Dr. Bhaskar Goel, BHMS

What is Osteoarthritis?

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

Risk Factors for Osteoarthritis in Dogs

Any breed of dog can develop osteoarthritis, particularly as they progress with age. But there are some factors that can predispose a dog to this condition, such as fractures or tears in the ligaments due to repetitive stress from the athletic activities in large or giant breeds like German Shepherd, Labrador, Retrievers, Golden Retrievers. Other predisposing factors like obesity, age, particularly middle-aged to age-old dogs, infections that affect the joints as such in Lyme’s disease, improper nutrition, poor conformation, genetic factors, etc., could also be a reason.

Signs of Osteoarthritis in Dogs

Early detection of osteoarthritis is the toughest task and often the symptoms do not become apparent until the affected joint is badly damaged. In some dogs predisposition of pain may take time because of their heaviness. Thus, it is important to keep monitoring the middle-aged to age-old dogs and those predisposed to osteoarthritis for early signs of Degenerative Joint Disease.

These signs include

Stiffness, lameness or difficulty in getting up, lethargy, reluctance to run even for a short distance, jump, or play, weight gain, irritability, or changes in behavior, pain in the joints when palpated, are the most common symptoms. Difficulty in posturing to urinate or defecate or having accidents in the house, loss of muscle mass over the limbs, and spine are other additional symptoms.

 Additional Treatment

Veterinarians may recommend treatment modalities like physiotherapy, acupuncture, cold laser, and changes in diet. In severe cases, surgery may be recommended to remove the damaged tissue from the joint, or even to replace the entire joint.

Septic Conditions in Dog : Symptoms & Cure


There are many diseases in pets which may lead to sepsis or show symptoms of septic like conditions. Bacteremia is the presence of bacterial organisms in the dogs blood stream whereas septicimea is the presence of microbes and their toxins in the system for a prolonged period. When the infection is spread through out the body, it is known as systemic infection. This is also known as blood poisoning or septic fever. This condition is fatal when it leads to abnormally low blood pressure and high body temperature and may lead to death if left untreated. In severe cases, when the condition has progressed to septic shock, treatment alone is not enough to save the animal.

Symptoms and Types

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

  1. Sepsis and bacteremia in dogs may develop slowly or suddenly.
  2. Signs and symptoms may vary, or they may involve many different organ systems, like the cardiovascular system in severe cases.
  3. Symptoms are often confused with the signs and symptoms of many other immune-regulated diseases.
  4. Clinical symptoms are often more severe when the organisms involved are gram-negative bacteria. This type of organisms are more likely to cause diseases in the dogs.
  5. Primarily, dogs will develop signs and symptoms of the disease in the gastrointestinal tract.
  6. Initial physical signs and symptoms typically include chills, fever, and lethargy.
  7. Symptoms of depression are common in affected dogs.
  8. Tachycardia (rapid heart beat) and heart murmur can also be observed.

The causes for sepsis or bacteremia in dogs typically includes exposure to host specific disease causing micro-organisms like E.coli. Conditions that may increase the likelihood of sepsis:

Surgery, especially if the location of the surgery is infected. Existing infections, immune system disorders, pneumonia, uterine infections, urinary tract infections, skin infections, etc. may predispose sepsis. Any condition that lowers the immune system, places the dog at risk of contracting  a bacterial infection.

One reason for septic shock could be an untreated severe infection, such as:

  1. Ruptured intestines (typically from intestinal cancer or a foreign body obstruction), arthritis, or blood infection.
  2. Kidney infection like polynephritis, uterine infections in intact females like pyometra.
  3. Prostatic infection in male dogs like prostatic abscess, pancreatic infections like pancreatitis or pancreatic abscess.
  4. Severely infected wounds as in case of abscess or bite wounds or most commonly infections in the ear or pneumonia.
  5. Bacterial infection in the vertebrae as in case of spondylitis, bacterial infection on the heart valves as seen in bacterial endocarditis.
  6. Ruptured organs (e.g., a ruptured stomach secondary to gastric dilatation-volvulus, a ruptured bladder secondary to bladder stones, or a ruptured gall bladder secondary to gall bladder stones).

Your Pet is in Stress : Do you know?


Change in routine like shift to a new home, can bring out a lot of stress for pets. Dogs become accustomed to a routine and change in the same increases  their stress levels even if the change is for their own betterment. However, if the change is an improvement in the dog’s situation, the body’s stress response will return to its normal status sooner or later. Some other common stress factors may include loud noises  (thunderstorm, fireworks, construction), boarding or kenneling, and even travel. Meeting new family members (whether people or animals) can also cause stress in pets. As per recent studies, Homeopathic Veterinary Medicines may help your pet to deal with stressful situations in a quick and effective way.

If the dog is stressed out for a longer period, changes are evident in his health condition or behaviour, which can lead to serious problems if not addressed timely. Here are the six ways to show how stress can affect a dog’s health.

Behavioural problems

Stress usually come out as aggression in dogs. There can be no doubt that pain or illness can cause stress, they may be irritated, frustrated, and even angry. Behavioural changes such as lethargy, hiding in quiet spots, inappetite, vomiting and other related signs shows that our dog is not well. Common ailments such as hip dysplasia may result in aggression even in a homely pet. Subsequently, they may behave aggressively towards anything that gets associated with their pain or discomfort. The dog may only be temporarily stressed due to illness but the lifestyle impact continues for a long period of time. For instance, a puppy that has spent time in a veterinary clinic due to disease or illness may start disliking the veterinary staff who are associated with it’s discomfort. Even this can become a reason for their stress when they revisit the veterinary hospital again.

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

 Weakened Immune System

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


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

Issues with Urination

Stress very often causes inappropriate urination in pets. A clear example of this is, urination that occurs in response to fear. The immediate release of stress hormones will relax the bladder sphincters and urination will occur suddenly. The same stress may even cause sudden defecation by relaxing the anal sphincter. Ways to relieve stress in dogs depends upon the underlying physiological cause. Conditions such as brain tumours and thyroid dysfunctionalities can only be diagnosed and treated with the help of a veterinarian’s guidance. Aggressive behaviour in dogs need to be managed safely and effectively. Dogs that display aggressive behaviour, either due to the medical or behavioural reasons, may benefit from the following homoeopathy remedy.
