There is in the veterinary literature much about herpes infection in dogs, many excellent articles have been published. Anyone wishing a quick look, got to any veterinary hospital or library and ask for: VETERINARY INTERNAL MEDICINE Stephen Ettinger, Page 309 THE ROLE OF NEONATAL CANINE HERPES VIRUS INFECTION IN MIXED INFECTIONS IN OLDER DOGS Continuing Education Article 1 688 Vol. None of these or other articles addresses the problems of treatment and prevention of death! See other articles in PMC that cite the published article. Given the large number of pet dogs and high incidence of lymphoma, particularly in susceptible breeds, dogs represent a largely untapped resource for advancing the understanding and treatment of human lymphoma. Traditionally, mouse cancer models have been either xenografts of human tumors into immunocompromised mice or have been genetically engineered mouse models (GEMMs) with lesions that result in increased and/or accelerated lymphoma incidence (1, 2). The true incidence of CL is difficult to ascertain, since most dogs are diagnosed and treated by their local veterinarian and few are reported in the veterinary literature. This study demonstrates that CHV1 infection is common in breeding bitches in the eastern part of Norway. There has been an increasing concern among dog breeders in Norway about canine herpesvirus-1 (CHV1) and its ability to cause reproductive problems in the bitch and perinatal puppy loss 1. Several studies report high seroprevalence in the dog population in many European countries and there is increased movement of dogs between Norway and continental Europe. A total of 193 purebred bitches admitted for routine estrus control to the Canine Reproductive Clinical Unit at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science were included in the study.
Many aspects of animal diseases are best understood in terms of population or herd phenomena; for example, herds of livestock, rather than individual animals, are vaccinated against specific diseases, and housing, nutrition, and breeding practices are related to the likelihood of illness in the herd. Of the more than 1,200,000 species of animals thus far identified, only a few have been utilized in research, even though it is likely that, for every known human disease, an identical or similar disease exists in at least one other animal species. There is evidence at multiple levels that lysine supplementation is not effective for the prevention or treatment of feline herpesvirus 1 infection in cats. Supplementing cat food with the amino acid lysine has been advocated for the prevention and treatment of FHV-1 infection 4. It seems unlikely, however, that the fraction of arginine in the HHV-1 proteome is much different from that of its exome since the average number of arginine residues for capsid, tegument, envelope and the remaining proteins is 8. Silver has been used for hundreds of years as both a medicine and preservative by many cultures around the world. Colloidal silver is argued to be the best alternative, safe for pets, children, plants, and all multi-celled organisms. So the article states they would rather take antibiotics than silver because there isn’t enough information about it?
There have been a number of instances where people who had taken a mixture of cider vinegar and water before a meal were unaffected by diarrhoea or digestive upsets, whilst their companions who ate the same meal were. The treatment of impaired hearing has had excellent results on the apple cider vinegar therapy. I have seen dogs and cats live much longer, happier and better quality lives with fewer side effects using the natural approach. There are many other good colloidal silver creams and gels, and you can read about some of them in my article Germ-Busting Colloidal Silver Creams and Gels. Being a pet dog C. Wakeman discusses a number of ways to avoid this deadly viral infection.
The rabies virus may lie dormant in the body for several weeks or months, but rarely much longer, before symptoms appear. Many animals, such as raccoons and skunks, are nocturnal and their activity during the day should be regarded as suspicious. Doctors have even lost their practices for successfully diagnosing and treating Chronic Lyme, as shown in the film Under Our Skin. Our method was to analyze each foundation Lyme disease’ premise within the context of available medical and veterinary literature, then to reconstruct the disease model consistent with the preponderance of that data. Borrelia spirochetes have been found in the urine of infected dogs, among several other animals. 4 years is long enough to do serious damage, but I know of many people whose diagnosis took much longer. Published: May 11, 2016. A popular therapy among chiropractors who treat pets is low level laser or cold laser treatment. The significance, if any, of this for health and disease has never been demonstrated, which makes it a gap in real scientific knowledge into which all kinds of mystical nonsense can be stuffed, much like the pseudoscientific misuse of quantum physics. There is insufficient evidence in the published, peer-reviewed scientific literature to demonstrate that LLLT is effective for these conditions or other medical conditions. The evidence does not support, and in some cases directly contradicts the claims made by the chiropratic organization website and much of the marketing materials on cold laser therapy veterinarians receive. Much of the evidence cited for preventing transmission of infectious agents in healthcare settings is derived from studies that used quasi-experimental designs, also referred to as nonrandomized, pre- post-intervention study designs 2. AIIRs or designating areas for patient cohorts when there are an insufficient number of AIIRs available;5) providing adequate quantities of appropriate personal protective equipment; and 6) identifying appropriate staff to care for potentially infectious patients (e. This article reviews the most important infectious diseases that are found in the pet nonhuman primate and present potential hazards to human beings. There are more than 244 species of living primates, including the great apes through the monkeys and prosimians such as lemurs, pottos, galagos, tarsiers, and tupais. Many viral diseases, such as hepatitis or herpes B, can be transmitted from animal to man. Because chimpanzees have not been imported as pets for many years, the few pet chimpanzees encountered probably present no danger of hepatitis. Publication no D-6300. Based on our current knowledge of natural fetal mummification events, there are a number of prerequisites for the process of fetal mummification to occur. The objective of this article is to review fetal mummification in the major domestic species: cattle, goats, sheep, horses, swine, dogs, and cats. Several potential causes for this condition have been proposed: bovine viral diarrhea (BVD), leptospirosis and mold, Neospora caninum;19,20 mechanical factors, such as compression and/or torsion of the umbilical cord;21 uterine torsion;22 defective placentation;23 genetic anomalies;19,24 abnormal hormonal profiles; and chromosomal abnormalities.
Canine Health Concern
Ideal for small animal veterinary practices, Canis provides peer reviewed clinical information on the dog, including detailed pictures and videos, from over 510 leading clinicians worldwide. The experimental and field studies supporting this claim are in the published veterinary literature and cited below. There are no good studies of the effect of this treatment in spontaneously arising FIP infection, although one protocol using human interferon alpha orally at 30 IU/day for 7 days on alternate weeks for 6-7 weeks is described. Recombinant human interferon alpha has been used topically in cats for the treatment of herpes keratitis at a dose of 20-50 IU/ml reconstituted in artificial tears and given twice daily. Allowing the female dog (bitch) to have puppies can be a wonderful experience. However, dog owners must understand the responsibility that comes with breeding since overpopulation is a tremendous problem. There are a tremendous number of well-written, interesting articles by highly experienced breeders which I am sure you will enjoy. You might want to read up on chlamydia, a bacterial disease which also has similar eye symptoms. Another member of the felineherpes group has had great success with the product Feline Immune Support for Cats A synergistic blend combining Bee Pollen, Astragalus, Vitamin C, Garlic, and L-lysine specifically targeted to stimulate the feline immune system Another member recommends Gentocin without steroids for upper respiratory problems. There has been scientific studies done on UC Davis, which implied that overdose of L- Lysine is simply not possible, because the cats will not eat the food if the halt of L-Lysine is so high that it can be dangerous. I am a veterinarian and an Ocicat breeder who has some knowledge and experience with feline herpes virus infection. There has been much debate on the subject of annual pet vaccination, chiefly in response to concerns voiced by pet owners. Although this is written for humans, one must ask whether dogs, cats and horses have B cells and T cells, and B and T cell immunodeficiencies? Of course they do, meaning that animals with epilepsy and other neurologic conditions, skin disease, allergies, heart disease. How many veterinarians think to report a suspected adverse reaction if an animal develops pancreatitis, arthritis, ataxia, skin disease, epilepsy, behavioural problems, allergies, colitis, etc. These MLV herpes virus vaccines induced necrotic oophoritis in heifers that were vaccinated during estrus.
As the number of dogs living with chronic immunomodulatory systemic diseases and receiving immunosuppressive therapeutics continues to grow, the clinical importance of CHV-1 ocular infections is also likely to increase. The role of CHV-1 in severe systemic neonatal infections and as an aetiology of infectious infertility and abortion has been appreciated for decades; however, ocular diseases of mature dogs conclusively associated with CHV-1 infection were only recently described. The understanding of CHV-1 pathophysiology and ocular infections in mature dogs has expanded rapidly during the past few years, but much remains to be elucidated.
