All dog diseases and their treatment We start with diarrhea

To prevent severe loss of fluids and nutrients.

What is serious is diarrhea in dogs?

Your veterinarian will try to determine the pathogen that your dog has reached as a result of diarrhea. When a dog becomes ill with a general illness (that is, more than one organ is injured in the body), you may notice some of the following symptoms:

Vomiting
Drought
Anorexia
Colic
Hyperthermia
Idle
Bloody and / or liquid diarrhea.
What kinds of tests are performed to find out why?

If diarrhea is accompanied by many of the other symptoms we have mentioned, your veterinarian will perform a series of tests to diagnose the disease, this allows him to determine a more specialized treatment, and these diagnostic tests include x-rays using or without barium, blood tests, stool testing , Intestinal live samples, and exploratory surgery to examine the abdomen. Treatment may include specialized medications, specific nutritional programs, or surgical treatment.

If the dog does not appear to be sick with a general disease of diarrhea, the cause may be less serious. Some of these secondary causes of diarrhea include: stomach or intestinal viruses, intestinal parasites, and wrong feeding (such as eating trash or any disgusting or flammable substance).

A small number of tests are performed to control specific parasites or infections, and such cases are treated with medications to control bowel movement, and medications that calm inflammation in the intestine, and a certain diet is prescribed for a few days. This treatment helps the body overcome the problem.

An improvement in the condition appears within 2-4 days, and if the condition does not improve, a change in medication or other tests is undertaken to better understand the problem.

Lyme disease

What is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is caused by a type of ring bacteria called Borrella, and these bacteria are transmitted to dogs through tick bites. Once they enter the bloodstream, they travel to different parts of the body, usually concentrated in the joints, and it was believed in the past that there are only certain types It is ticks that transmit this disease, but it has now appeared that many common ticks can transmit disease.

Can this disease affect humans?

Yes, but humans do not get it from dogs directly, but they get infected from the tick bite itself that transmitted the disease to dogs, so prevention of tick exposure is important for you and your dog.

How is the dog affected by this disease?

Many people with this disease appear as a characteristic rash in the place of a tick bite within 3 to 30 days, and it is easy to diagnose the disease at an early stage, but the symptoms of Lyme disease are more difficult to detect in animals than humans.

The characteristic rash does not appear in dogs or cats, because other symptoms of the disease may be delayed or not noticed, and because the symptoms are similar to those of many other diseases, Lyme disease is not observed in animals only after the elimination of other diseases.

Many dogs that have been infected with Lyme disease are taken to the veterinarian because they appear to feel general pain and have stopped eating, and dogs affected are described as “walking on eggshells”, dogs are usually very high temperature, dogs may also become limp due to this disease , And usually painful lameness appears suddenly and may move from one foot to the next, if not treated, it may disappear after a while but return again after weeks or months.

Some pets become infected with Lyme disease more than a year before symptoms appear, and by the time symptoms appear, the disease will spread to the entire body.

How is Lyme diagnosed?

Dogs with lameness, joint swelling, and fever may be infected with Lyme disease, but there are other diseases that have the same symptoms. There are two blood tests that can be used to confirm the diagnosis.

The first is an antibody test. This test does not reveal the bacteria present in the blood, but it does reveal the antibodies that the body produced against it. The test may show an unreal negative result if the dog is infected but the antibodies are not yet, or if it cannot form antibodies to create a positive reaction, And this happens with animals that suffer from weak immune systems, some dogs that have been infected for long periods suffer from not having enough antibodies to discover them with a test, so the positive result of this test is beneficial, but the negative result does not depend on it.

The second test is a PCR genetic test, also known as a DNA test, and it is a specialized and highly sensitive test, but not all dogs contain pathogenic bacteria in their blood cells. An unreal negative result may appear, so the best sample is taken from a liquid The affected joint.
