Dogs + Treatment

  • Cystitis is the name given to inflammation of the urinary bladder or, more specifically, the epithelium (lining of the bladder). It is a commonly diagnosed condition in dogs of both sexes.

  • Cysts are hollow spaces containing liquid or solidified secretion. A few cysts form within cancers but only non-cancerous cysts are considered here.

  • The spinal cord is one of the most important and most sensitive organs in the body. If it is damaged the nerve cells do not regenerate but are replaced with scar (fibrous) tissue resulting in permanent loss of function.

  • Our pets, like us, are living longer and over time, the hinges of the body - the joints - tend to become increasingly stiff and painful.

  • This disease results in a slowly progressive hind limb weakness and paralysis, often occurring over several months to even years.

  • Diabetes mellitus (DM or sugar diabetes) is often a disease of overweight, middle aged animals. The classical signs are weight loss, increased appetite, increased thirst and increased urination.

  • Diabetes mellitus, (DM), is a complex disorder of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism caused by the body's inability to produce or to utilise adequate amounts of insulin produced by specialised cells in the pancreas.

  • Jaundice (icterus) is a condition characterised by an accumulation of bilirubin (a bile pigment) in the skin, mucous membranes, and sclera (whites of the eyes) causing them to appear yellow.

  • Diarrhoea is a sign of a bowel problem. This can vary from simple dietary indiscretion, e.g. eating a rotting bone found in the garden to potentially fatal illnesses such as cancer.

  • Muscle (called smooth muscle) and fibrous connective tissues form the framework (stroma) that holds other tissues together in the organs of the body. A number of different tumours can develop from the cells of these tissues.
