PET SYMPTOMS

TEM1T100 Temaril-P

  • Kennel Cough is a combination infection of the bacteria Bordetella bronchiseptica and the canine parainfluenza virus. Kennel cough is characterized as an infection of the upper respiratory tract as sneezing and coughing is released turning the infection to an airborne state. A dog can become infected with kennel cough through nose to nose contact with another dog, a contaminated food or water dish, or from being placed in close proximity to an infected dog. The affects of kennel cough will put the dog’s health at risk and tends to spread to other dogs very quickly, which makes a veterinary visit at the at most importance. A dog affected by this condition will display a number of symptoms and signs of contraction. The signs to look for include; vomiting, gagging, asthma similar symptoms during exercise, snorting, sneezing, retching, coughing, and nasal discharge.

 

  • Bronchitis and tracheobronchitits is an inflammation of the bronchi as well as the trachea organs located deep into the tissues of the lungs. In humans bronchitis is caused by respiratory complications due to a common cold or bacterial infection. In pets bronchitis is most often caused by bacterial infections or secondary atmospheric irritants such as perfume, smoke, cigarette smoke, dust, or air fresheners. A pet with a bronchitis infection will display a harsh cough, excessive saliva production, an unexplained gag reflex, and an abnormal sound during times of breathing.

 

  • Allergies are an overreaction of the body’s immunity. Histamine is a nitrogen compound naturally found within the body. This specialized organic structure functions in the immune response and is triggered when foreign pathogens enter the body. This response of histamine is a neurotransmitter, inflammatory response caused by a signal from the brain. As this message is passed to the brain, the skin may swell, itch, and develop hives or a rash due to the contamination of said pathogen. Common conditions which cause the production of histamine includes; dermatitis and otitis.

 

  • The term Dermatitis refers to inflammations of the skin. Derma- means skin and –itis means inflammation. Contact dermatitis therefore means the skin has become inflamed or irritated due to an outsource in which it has made contact with. Although skin irritants may seem like a minor condition some pets have high reaction rates, spreading the rash to the entire body. Contact dermatitis appears as a rash or small blistered bumps that may crush over. These irritations commonly appear on non-protective areas of the body such as the muzzle, under belly, groin, toes, and inner ears.

 

  • Otitis Externa is defined as an infection or inflammation of the canal of the ear. Symptoms of an ear infection include; shaking of the head, redness of the ear tissues, pawing or scratching of the ears, head tilt, slight deafness, pain when eating, pain when yawning, and pain whilst the jaws are being handled.

DERGE Derma-Gel

Posted November 21st, 2013 by admin

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Derma-gel is an isotonic gel for intensive skin care in all animal species, including exotics, birds and reptiles.

WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES

With its unique properties, Derma-gel provides protection against foreign contaminants and promotes healing of the wound, making the bandaging unnecessary.

PET SYMPTOMS

There are numerous types of injuries that animals can sustain; from lacerations, bite wounds, burns, fight wounds, etc. Most of the everyday injuries are minor and not life threatening, but in certain cases serious injuries are possible as well. Fresh, uncomplicated wounds are usually swollen, can be bleeding and are usually painful. In some cases hair might be missing from the affected area, skin can be torn, cut or scraped. Animals can be limping. If the wound is not rapidly taken care of, it can become infected. Such wounds usually have pustulous discharge. If the bacteria have entered the bloodstream through the wound, the animal can become feverish and lethargic. Certain infected wounds can develop into abscesses, as a result of accumulation of pustulous material under the skin.

PET AILMENTS

There is no particular ailment that causes wound formation, they are usually result of accidents, fights and other dangers.

RELATIVE INFO ON BREEDS MOST ASSOCIATED WITH THIS AILMENT

Animals of all sizes, ages and breeds are prone to injuries. Domesticated animals are somewhat less likely to sustain injuries environment, as opposed to wild animals living freely in the nature. They often take part in fights, sometimes even for their lives, and are more exposed to traffic and other harmful human and natural impacts that can lead to injuries.

QUESTIONS FOR MY VET

1. How does Derma-gel work?

a) Derma-gel provides a moist environment for the wound and at the same time creates a protective film that shields the wound and prevents the bacteria to enter. In that way, it helps cleansing the dead tissue from the wound and allows natural movements of the skin.

2. On what kind of animals can Derma-gel be used?

a) Derma-gel can be safely used on all domestic animals, as well as birds and reptiles. However, before applying Derma-gel on exotic animal, consult with the vet.

3. What if the animal licks Derma-gel? Can it be harmful?

a) All ingredients of Derma-gel are safe and can bring no harm to the animal’s health in case of licking and ingestion. However, it would be better to prevent licking and preserve the protective and healing properties of the applied gel.

4. What can I expect after Derma-gel application? What changes on the skin and hair will occur?

a) Depending on the wound severity, Derma-gel will, in a certain degree, reduce scarring and improve the healing process. Wounds treated with Derma-gel heal faster, but the process primarily depends on the seriousness of injury and the amount of damaged tissue.

5. How soon will the wound heal with Derma-gel?

a) The healing process will be somewhat shortened, but the duration of the healing process primarily depends on the severity of the wound.

6. Is it absolutely unnecessary to use bandage with Derma-gel?

a) In certain cases bandages might be necessary, but Derma-gel can still be applied; it will prevent the bandage from sticking to the healing skin and causing damage to the newly grown tissue.

7. Should I do any preparations of the wound prior Derma-gel application?

a) Derma-gel can be applied directly to the wound if necessary. However, it would be beneficial to rinse the wound with sterile saline or at least with fresh water before reaching veterinary clinic.

8. On what wounds is Derma-gel used?

a) Derma-gel can be used on all kinds of wounds, from cuts, bites, scrapes, injuries with skin loss. It can even be applied on surgical wounds where suturing is not possible.

HOW IT WORKS

Derma-gel contains high molecular weight polymers that help promote wound healing. The gel provides semi-permeable dressing that provides a moist environment in which the skin can “breathe” and prevents scab formation. It also allows skin cells to migrate faster across the wound and that way promotes and accelerates the healing process. In that way, scarring and hair discoloration is successfully avoided. The protective film on the surface of the wound prevents the harmful bacteria from entering the damaged tissue and provides thermal isolation of the wound.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Derma-gel can be used on a number of injuries but is particularly useful on fussy animals and wounds in areas of high mobility (e.g. joints). It provides excellent support after trauma or surgeries where closure of the wound is not possible. Derma-gel works as an excellent dressing and can replace bandage in cases where bandaging is not possible. It is useful to rinse the injury with fresh water or sterile saline before applying Derma-gel.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Derma-gel should be applied 2-3 times a day on open or large affected areas. The application can be repeat one to two times daily until the desired effect is achieved.

INGREDIENTS

WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES

Deramaxx controls pain and inflammation in dogs, especially after orthopedic and dental operative procedures as well as in osteoarthritis patients.

PET SYMPTOMS

DER25T Deramaxx

As a result of hereditary predisposition, natural aging processes or injury, a significant number of dogs are suffering from osteoarthritis. It is the degenerative joint condition, most commonly affecting limb joints such as hips, elbows, ankles or knees. The first sign of this condition is usually the pain in the affected limb. Since the animals cannot tell us if they are in pain, we need to be able to recognize the changes in their behavior. Animals with painful joints will often show reluctance when required to climb stairs or jump on the couch, for example. In certain cases, they will have difficulties sitting, rising or squatting. They are not eager to exercise and often display stiffness after physical activity. In severe cases of pain, there will even be visible loss of appetite and weight loss. The animals are likely to spare the affected limb and can be lame if the pain and the arthritic changes have advanced. Upon detailed examination of the animal, it can be noticed that the affected joints are painful and inflamed (swollen, warm).

PET SYMPTOMS

DEN3GE DentAcetic Natural Dental Gel DEN3GE DentAcetic Natural Dental Gel

 

Dental hygiene in pets is as important as in humans. If teeth and gums care are not properly and regularly performed, numerous problems will develop. As the result of poor or non-existent dental hygiene, soft dental plaque builds up on the surfaces of the teeth. If plaque accumulates, the bacteria in it irritate the gums and cause inflammation. Calcium salts from saliva gradually bind themselves on the plaque, forming calculus (hard dental tartar). Tartar relatively quickly grows in thickness, providing new surface for plaque accumulating, and it is difficult to remove without the dental instruments.

Bad breath is usually the first sign of periodontal disease that the owners notice. The gums are usually very irritated and inflamed, the can be bleeding and painful, which leads to loss of appetite. As the teeth roots become affected with the disease, they gradually loosen and fall out. Bacteria from the oral cavity can eventually enter the bloodstream and cause serious health issues.

PET AILMENTS

Periodontal disease (the gum disease) is among the most common diseases in the companion animal veterinary medicine. It affects over 87% of dogs and over 70% of cats over three years of age. It is the main cause of bad breath and tartar accumulation in dogs and cats.
