Pancreatic tumor/pancreatitis (Cat)

This cancer in cats is called adenocarcinoma, and is particularly malignant. It spreads quickly throughout the body, harming healthy cells and organs. Symptoms of this cancer include weakness, lethargy, fever, weight loss, digestion issues, jaundice, and abdominal pain. Pancreatic cancer in cats is rare, and usually results in a cat’s death. Survival is typically only a couple of months due to symptoms not appearing until the cancer is in its later stages. Read More>>>

Canine Adenoma (Dog)

Adenomas are tumors that, if they are not able to be removed through surgery often cause compression, destruction and loss of function in structures near their location, including suffocation if the airway becomes obstructed. Dogs may have nose bleeds or other discharge, sneeze, be short of breath, and try to wipe their eyes due to discomfort. At later stages, the eyes may bulge and the face may become deformed. Sometimes a dog will exhibit behavior changes due to pressure on the brain, such as circling and having problems with eyesight. 

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of low-dose naltrexone (LDN) as a carboplatin chemotherapy-associated drug in female dogs with mammary carcinoma in benign mixed tumors (MC-BMT) after mastectomy and to assess its association with quality of life and survival rates.

Canine Arthritis (Dog) Torn ACL pain

Arthritis, abnormal joint changes typically characterized by joint inflammation and degeneration is common and difficult to manage in dogs. There may be obvious indicators of pain, limping, lameness, restricted mobility or range of motion, or be a milder “”careful”” attitude on the dog’s part when changing positions. Xrays may reveal joint degeneration or bony growths. Unfortunately, when a dog reduces use of joints because of discomfort, it can result in weight gain and further limited joint mobility.
