The seizures caused by epilepsy can be quite dangerous, and although often treatable, there has been some debate over which anti-epileptic drug is most effective. In part, this is because the ability of a drug to control seizures has to be balanced with the possible side effects. In a study supported by the AKC Canine Health Foundation, researchers set out to determine which medication is the best initial treatment choice in epileptic dogs.
Prolotherapy is a type of regenerative medicine gaining popularity in humans. The goal is to repair joints with injections of various substances. Many dogs are affected by Osteoarthritis (OA), a painful and often debilitating condition. Researchers at Kansas State University are conducting a clinical trial evaluating the effectiveness of prolotherapy in clinical canine patients suffering from OA.
Infections transmitted by ticks and fleas can trigger immune-mediated disease leading to hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia or joint pain. To more accurately determine the prevalence of infection in dogs with immune-mediated disease, researchers are testing banked samples for multiple tick-borne pathogens. This study could bring awareness to the prevalence of tick borne disease and change how vets test for infections in dogs with signs of immune-mediated disease.
In this podcast we bring you an interview with Dr. Rachel Reiman, of Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists. Dr. Reiman discusses what to expect during your dog's visit to a veterinary oncologist.
