WATERFALLS October 13, 2007 Leave a comment Veterinary Vision WATERFALLS The lens is transparent in normal conditions, when this transparency is lost and opacities say there appear cataracts. Cataracts do not allow normal passage of light to the retina and can not be “translate” the images in the brain as impulses that reach him were incorrect. If we look at our pet front will see the center of the iris, where the pupil is located (in black under normal conditions) white (larger or smaller depending on the intensity of light or the severity of the process) . Do not confuse the sclerotic cataract lens, normal in older dogs without clinical significance. Cataracts logically leads to blindness or reduced vision in the affected eye (depending on the state in which you are). Many animals are blind without the owner being aware of it, this happens because the animals are handled very well in familiar environments and with the help of smell, touch and hearing, as these animals out of their environment show great confusion and struck with the objects around them. Other consequences occur: – Facolítica Uveitis occurs in very mature cataract (Hypermature) due to its large size causes “out” of material from the lens into the eye, this material is very inflammatory and results in intraocular inflammation, is a dangerous process. – Glaucoma is an increase in intraocular pressure and may be due to facolítica or to secondary processes such as dislocations lens (the lens is clear from its usual location) uveitis, this process is very dangerous, sometimes causing increased eyeball and loss. There are many reasons why a cataract may appear: hereditary, metabolic, inlflamatorias, traumatic, perforated ulcers, toxic, etc .

. . Symptoms and characteristics: – Loss of vision – Change color of the pupil (white) – Dilated pupil – Sometimes red eye secondary to inflammation associated – Uveitis, glaucoma or hypertensive uveitis (in some cases) – Loss of natural lens position (dislocation) in some cases Forecast: Generally good if no associated ocular or systemic diseases. If retinal problems can be eliminated to avoid secondary cataract vision problems but will be very relaxed or destroyed due to the main problem in the retina. Usually a problem of geriatric animals so surgery must be well planned to avoid problems in anesthesia and surgery (heart, kidney, eye and existing)

Postsurgical complications depend on the general condition of the animal, as well as the character of our pet (very nervous dogs are more prone to problems) Treatment: Treatment is always surgical, eliminating the clouding of the lens. Medical treatment is applied before and after surgery, in most cases for life. Not all cataracts are operable not all dogs are candidates for this surgery, to do an independent study of each case to tailor treatment R. R.

corneal ulcers October 12, 2007 Veterinary Vision 2 reviews Corneal Ulcers Ulcers are “wounds” of the cornea. There are several types of ulcers and may be caused by many entities. symptoms: – Eye pain (blepharospasm, the affected eye closed or habre with difficulty), pain is greater in shallow ulcers, however deep ulcers are less painful (but more dangerous ! ! ) – Red eye – Blue Cornea (corneal edema) – Corneal damage can sometimes be seen with the naked eye, but for diagnosis requires the use of vital dyes such as fluorescein. – General discomfort

– self-trauma Types of ulcers: – Superficial: Affecting the surface area of ​​the cornea and are extremely painful. They can be very extensive but the prognosis is usually good. Scarring is usually rapid under normal conditions in about 4 days there reepithelialization area. Certain animals have problems in healing such as the Boxer, these animals suffer known as indolent ulcers, that are slow to heal and even surgical assistance needed for this. There are more races with this type of ulcer. Do not confuse indolent ulcers with ulcers that do not heal, there is always to look for the root cause such as eyelashes or hairs that enter the eye (trichiasis) ectopic eyelashes (distriquiasis), ectopic cilia, entropion or ectropion, etc . . . – Deep: The next step of surface corneal ulceration is deepening. In these cases the prognosis is serious because of the possibility of perforation of the eyeball. All of them require surgical treatment and correction of the underlying cause.

This type of ulcer is less painful than superficial ulceration but is much more serious. Causes: – Injuries: either self-produced or by external agents (bumps, scratches, chemicals, foreign bodies, etc . . . ) – Eyelid Problems (entropion, ectropion, trichiasis, distriquiasis, ectopic cilia, tumors, etc . . . ) – Infeciones viral, bacterial or fungal – Secondary to other diseases such as corneal problems underlying deficiency tear, proptosis bulbi, buphthalmia (increased eyeball), etc . .

. Treatment: – Medical: instillation of eye drops to relieve pain, prevent secondary infections and promote corneal scarring. you should always try the main problem, for example, if we tear deficit establish medical treatment, and resort to surgery if necessary, such as in the presence of entropion, etc . . . – Surgical: superficial ulcers complicated, very large or beginning to deepen must undergo surgery. Deep ulcers are always operating room. Surgical possibilities are varied and depend on each animal (nictitans flaps, conjunctival flaps . . . ) Forecast:

It depends on the type of ulcer and its etiology. Superficial ulcers often have a favorable prognosis while deep gravity are always reserved prognosis.

To increased intraocular pressure above normal physiological values ​​without clinical signs known as ocular hypertension and when it is accompanied by clinical signs such as vision loss or intraocular damage is known as glaucoma. Hypertension can be pre-glaucoma step but not necessarily develop, certain animals suffering from elevated intraocular pressure and can develop long-term injuries (eg chihuahuas, yorshire . . . ). The normal intraocular pressure (IOP) in small animals is 15 to 25 mm Hg, when these values ​​are exceeded the optic nerve and / or retina is affected resulting in noticeable changes, which are detailed below. IOP greater than 30 mm Hg with clinical signs is sufficient for a presumptive diagnosis of glaucoma. Early treatment of glaucoma is essential for visual, glaucoma guarantee more than 24 hours cause irreversible effects (although there are variations according to animals affected). Often the vision is lost before the owner becomes aware of the problem, but still quick action can save the affected eye and preserve vision in the other eye. The causes of glaucoma are varied, and depends on the species: – Glaucoma in dogs can apararecer acute and usually racial. El character early treatment is vital for a good prognosis. Generally glaucoma in dogs is a bilateral entity so should study the eye that is not apparently affected.

– Feline glaucoma has a worse prognosis may be unilateral or bilateral and is usually associated with systemic infections (toxoplasma, coronavirus, immunodeficiency or leukemia). slowly progresses to become chronic, so it has sometimes happens inadevertido by the owner until the buphthalmia (enlargement of the eyeball) appears. The IOP control is more complicated than in dogs and usually ends in enucleation. – Equine Glaucoma: much less frequent than in the previous two species and is usually 4 types: primary glaucoma, congenital glaucoma secondary to anterior uveitis and secondary to neoplasia. Control of IOP in this species is particularly complicated. Predisposition: – Racial predisposition: Dogs (Huskie, Terriers, Retrievers, Cocker Spaniels, Schnauzer, Basset, Beagles, Chow Chow, Samoyed, Great Dane . . . ) Cats (Siamese and Persian) Horses (Appaloosas) – Dislocation of lens – Uveitis – Tumors

– Eye Injuries Symptoms and characteristics: The symptomatology depends on the stage of glaucoma (acute, subacute or chronic), so the owner can see is: Acute: – Eye pain (blepharospasm, eye or eyes closed) – Blue Cornea (eye color change by corneal edema) – Fixed and dilated pupil (mydriasis) – Eye very red (red sclera) – Visual Impairment – Anorexia and depression Subacute: – Eye pain (blefarsospasmo) – Blue Cornea – Blindness or visual impairment

– Deformed, fixed and dilated pupils – Very red eye – Anorexia and depression Chronic: – Variable Eye pain – Vascularization, pigment and corneal edema – Lenticular opacification – Red or very red eye – Blindness or visual impairment – Dilated pupils fixed and abnormal – Anorexia, depression, shyness or aggression – Increase the eyeball and Descemet appearance of fine lines (by species) There may be increased pressure without symptoms, this process is known as ocular hypertension and is not the same as glaucoma, hypertension can develop into glaucoma so that preventive treatment is recommended if necessary or eliminate the trigger for the same cause ( intense stress for example)

Forecast: Reserved depend on the primary cause of glaucoma, the stage in which it is located and animal species affected. The visual prognosis depends on early treatment. Treatment: The use of topical antihypertensives, oral and / or parenteral can control certain types of glaucoma, treatment is usually for life, even in a blind eye. You can resort to surgery if necessary, always associated with medical treatment. If uncontrolled glaucoma is recommended practice evisceration and intraocular prosthesis or enucleation place in certain cases. The use of protecting retina has had great results in long-term visual eyes, delaying the onset of blindness and even preventing their appearance. Acute glaucoma is an ophthalmologic emergency and requires early attention to obtain acceptable results. Early diagnosis is crucial for the maintenance of vision. In case of suspected glaucoma consult your veterinarian. R. R.

Predisposition: – Kittens or cats provenance street – Animals vaccinated with access to fresh air and contact with unknown cats – Parents of virus carriers (transmission to offspring) – Young animals with eye problems discussed and improve but reappear in adulthood (carriers) – New cat at home (carrying the virus) that infects the old cat Symptoms and characteristics:

– Sneezing – Respiratory problems – Fever – Anorexy – discomfort – Purulent crusting – Neonatal ophthalmia in young kittens (puppies do not open their eyes and are full of gummy) – Symblepharon (abnormal connections conjunctival other ocualares attached) – Synechiae (unions iris to other ocular structures) – Acute or chronic keratitis (Cornales ulcers, eosinophilic keratitis . . . )

– Corneal Kidnapping (black plate on the cornea) – Chronic tearing (red tears) Forecast: Generally good, but usually animals that remain carriers for life and may have relapses (not always with ocular symptoms) Treatment: Symptomatic with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and antiviral. Using products that inhibit viral replication has been very successful in the long term to control the symptoms, both ocular and respiratory. It is important to understand that the disease remains latent for life and that under certain circumstances (eg stress) can be reactivated reappearing ocular symptoms and / or breathing.

Predisposition: – Brachiocephalic breeds (flat faces) and English Bulldog, Pug, French Bulldog, Shitzu, Lapsa apso, shar pei, Pekinese, etc. – Generally puppies, elderly or immunocompromised animals. – May appear in cats, but is rarer than in dogs. – Animals with cartilage in the very long nictitans, everted, or important invested glandular hyperplasia immunosuppression. Symptoms and characteristics: – It usually appears first unilaterally and, in some cases, bilateral soon. – You can not give cause discomfort or apparent symptoms.

– The gland is responsible for 40% (some authors even suggest that 60%) of the total production of tears, while the prolapsed gland is practically non-functional, – It may be associated with corneal injury (depending on the elapsed time, teardrop level, self-harm, etc. ) – Yellow / greenish gummy sticky aspect may appear secondary infections deficit tear. Forecast: – They tend to respond well to surgical treatment, having a recurrence rate of about 20%. – There may be pathologies associated with cartilage nictitans predisposing to prolapse of the gland, in these cases surgical correction of this condition is necessary to prevent recurrence. – Never to be removed (only if associated tumors) and have always replenish in place under general anesthesia. – If the gland is removed keratoconjunctivitis sicca predisposes to suffer in adulthood (especially in predisposed breeds) Surgery: The gland is positioned back in place and is supported by suturing to prevent further prolapse.

The first teeth

All babies get teeth and certainly is not a disease teething. Many children are still very sensitive when teething. The first teeth come in an average 6 – 8 months. But, it can also already with 12 weeks come the first tooth, and other babies have been running to the 1st tooth finally comes. The usual signs for teething are; hypersalivation, the baby would bite on all around, a sore butt, restlessness and whining, red cheeks and elevated temperature. Some children suddenly reject the spoon because the spoon is perceived as unpleasant. Please say more A teething ring is a classic when babies get their first teeth. Many believe that ambers help during teething, I personally believe that also. However, I would put my baby no chain, as this can be dangerous. In my shop you will get a very nice Schnullerkette with Bernstein. Violet root has been used since the Middle Ages at Zahnungs- complaints and did a great service to my children.

The bite on the root relieves pain. Please use only under supervision. CHAMOMILLA, helps always good when kids are sore during teething and more angry scream and misbehave. Osanit, is a homeopathic remedy that helps particularly well when the teeth inject into the jaw and the kids are cranky. Calcium fluorite D12 is useful when the teeth be long and difficult to get through (3 times 1 globules daily). FERRUM PHOSPHORICUM, helps during the passage of the teeth and inflamed gums. Kamistad Baby Gel and Dentinox you can use it if the gum is inflamed and you can see it well. Please not even just simply apply because the baby is restless. Both products contain a local anesthetic and Kamilienextrakt. Unfortunately, the other ingredients of both products are not quite as good. BUT I would still use in my child when the gums are red and swollen. (Normal Kamistad is for babies not suitable! )

Vibrocul suppositories, a homeopathic remedy and similar Osanit composed. Vibrucol are useful if the child has red cheeks and slight fever during teething. Applying these most only at night. go to bed about 15 minutes before given they work best. Weleda fever and Zahnungszäpfchen containing Chamomilla and Belladonna.

Relationship between apoptosis and HSV-2 infection

European researchers have investigated the role of apoptosis processes as a result of HSV-2 infection (herpes simplex virus type 2). The focus was on inflammatory response after the initial infection and the subsequent recruitment of immunocompetent cells in order to gain new insights into the effects of HSV-2 infection. The prevalence of HSV-2 infection is relatively high with 10 to 60%. The latency of the virus favors the recurrence of infections, affecting the integrity and function of the vaginal mucosa and increases the risk of contracting HIV. The immune system fights infections, among others characterized that it induces apoptosis in infected cells, namely by using so-called “death receptors” on the cell surface such as the Fas protein (apo-1, CD95) and its ligand FasL (CD178). Increasingly, one assumes, however, that in addition to Fas mediated apoptosis also other processes, such as proliferation, angiogenesis, fibrosis and inflammation. Against this background, the EU-funded research project FASVAG / HSV-2 examined (The role of Fas / FasL in maintenance of vaginal epithelium integrity during HSV-2 infection) the role of Fas / FasL experimentally to HSV-2-infected transgenic mice without Fas receptor, and Fas ligand. Exact analysis of the vaginal epithelium of the infected animals showed that the monocytes less pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines release and that the infiltration is lower by immune cells, which clarified that the Fas / FasL-axis at the local cytokine and chemokine after HSV-2 infection is involved and therefore also affects the migration and conversion of immune cells. A comparison with the wild-type showed in Fas / FasL-knockout mice inefficient mobilization of natural killer (NK) cells and CD8 + cells, which is associated with high viral load and a delayed clearance from the mucosa. The results confirm that the Fas / FasL pathway is crucial for an effective immune response against HSV-2. The FASVAG / HSV-2 study not only provides new insights into the mechanisms of HSV-2 infection, but is also of clinical importance, since the modulation of the Fas / FasL expression be used for the development of effective HSV-2 Vaginalmikrobiozide can.

Are Herpes Painful sores in Early Stages >> Herpes

? Three types of herpesvirus (virus family herpesviridae) cause wounds described as bubbles. These bubbles which are filled with fluid, break and then form a crust. Before forming these bubbles occur symptoms as early symptom known a type of herpes prodrome may be quite painful, while the other two can cause burning or similar unpleasant sensations. Oral herpes Oral herpes is caused by infection with the virus HSV-1, also known HHV -1, it is sometimes of HSV -2 causes the virus generally responsible for genital herpes. Oral herpes prodrome leads to a sensation in the area that will be affected by the cold sore. This feeling can burning, itching or painful. In addition, reports the Mayo Clinic that cold sores can be painful. A typical outbreak of oral herpes lasts a week or a little more. genital herpes Genital herpes is is usually caused by HSV-2 (HHV-2), but can also be triggered by HSV-1. Also it leads to symptoms that may include prodromatic, according to the Mayo Clinic, pain or itching in the affected area.

Sores develop later and can also lead to pain and itching. shingles Shingles (herpes zoster) is a recurrence of the varicella zoster virus (VZV, also known as HHV-3). This virus causes chickenpox during the first outbreak and causes shingles when he returns, the years or decades after infection with chickenpox. Herpes zoster early symptom is painful and takes place along the line of the nerves, in which the virus back to active. This is generally along the buttocks or torso of the body and emerges only on one side of the body. This pain will continue to develop as the red rash and blisters, for some people the pain can be unbearable and can sometimes take clarifies even after the rash treatment , The main line of treatment for all three of these conditions herpes is a course of antiviral drugs. These drugs include acyclovir, valacyclovir and famciclovir. A doctor may recommend other topical treatments for the management of herpes, although it is not recommended that topical treatments for genital herpes are used. In addition to antiviral drugs shingles is managed with corticosteroids, reduce swelling and as the possibility of complications. Analgesics and topical agents such as calamine lotion and capsaicin cream with lidocaine patches are also used to manage shingles pain.

Efficacy of the treatment Antiviral treatment for herpes conditions are most effective when they started during prodrome. People who can be set daily suppressive therapy have chronic outbreaks of oral or genital herpes particularly, this course of treatment involves taking antiviral drugs on a daily basis to reduce the number and severity of outbreaks <. br>


“Horses with Headshaking syndrome hit her head (= Headshaking head shaking). It involves an abrupt head movement, both up and down and sideways shows. Is the expression of the movement very strongly, this may even lead to Unreitbarkeit the horse. The Horsehead hurls it so abruptly upward and backward, that can lead to a collision with the head of the rider. Even a sudden rubbing the nose on the front legs is frequently observed. The Horsehead rockets thereby abruptly downward. Headshaking has increased in recent years to observe, being hot and thoroughbred horses are more affected than robust horses, draft horses and ponies! ” Causes of Headshaking in horses Possible triggers of Headshaking in horses many causes are possible. Very many horses captured in the spring or early summer to it, so when the sun shines intensely. Here, the sun seems to trigger irritation of large facial nerve (trigeminal nerve). Here, then there is an increased photosensitivity of the horse.

A viral infection and an associated nerve stimulation could also come as a trigger in question. Just as the herpes virus in humans is often a strong burning pain, stinging or itching triggers, so you have to imagine the horse to this. Other health effects may be responsible for the Headshaking syndrome. Inflammatory processes in the area of ​​the head, such as on the teeth or ears belong. Even ill-fitting saddles, bits inappropriate or too hard a rider’s hand may be partly responsible. is mostly an allergy of the main causes of Headshaking From my experience. The allergens are typically in environmental factors: increasingly poor air, swarms of insects and an increasingly aggressive sun are the main factors that are encountered in Headshaking. The feeding plays a major role with its numerous synthetic additives, flavorings and preservatives. Added to the ever increasing use of pesticides and fertilizers in agriculture as well as on high-performance trimmed horse pastures is no naturally occurring herbal and plant species. But also the opposite, too extensively managed pastures, usually with quite a bit of photosensitizing species like peppered the St. John’s wort, play a major role in Headshaking. Also increasing loads of horse liver, which inevitably come through the above factors materialize, are involved in allergies as Headshaking. Allergic reactions in horses take much to really disturbing and from year to year.

Headshaking is just one of them! We just worked our way from the standing stalls, inside boxes entertainment, outdoor boxing stance on the horse box with attached Paddock for loose housing and 24-hour grazing our horses outright, yet it should be considered already again open for our over the years as increased environmental pollution, whether it really is still horse friendly, horses suspend 24 hours insect swarms, UV irradiation and increasing air pollution. Just the Allergy horse as the Head Shaker may suffer as horse fair conditions tremendously due to this fact yet. So I think, is really to decide in each individual case and individually which horses for the individual horse is truly horse friendly. This can be very different at times! Therapy of Headshaking Prerequisite for a lasting successful therapy is always a causal approach for me. If the cause is found, I can treat them appropriately. When root cause analysis helps me for many years been the Biofield Hair Analysis for Horses. Herewith I can get an accurate picture of the various processes in the body and create based on an individual and holistic therapy concept. Is now an infection triggered by Headshaking in horses, the patient’s immune system must be strengthened and the body are supported in the fight against infection. However, if an allergy, as a rule, the cause, the excessive reaction of the immune system (= allergy) to be regulated. If one were to strengthen the immune system even in case of allergy, it would mean, conversely, even to increase the allergy and aggravate the Headshaking in horses.

“This” fine “difference already shows how important it is to treat the cause and not” to treat to just go “! ” In the many years of my work as an animal healer I can help many horses with my various herbs for horses and homeopathy for horses. Based on this knowledge, the new Nehls Easy Herbs HS a liquid Herbs for Horses composition, which I use in the veterinary center and in practice at Headshaking in horses emerged. Especially when Headshaking and allergic reactions you have to look, however, what herbs for horses composition is used because not infrequently allergies exist against certain herbs and plants. Against this background, my herbs are free for horses compositions 100% allergen! When an allergy to trigger a holistic therapy should be done, in which also the care and feeding of the horse can be optimized. In a hay dust allergy that does not translate so only an allergy to hay dust contains, but in particular present in the hay mold spores, which often play a role in Headshaking String should be paid in the future to a dust- and mold-free housing and feeding. To reduce the allergens I recommend to use my hay dust-stop. Roughage, bedding and barn are sprayed with hay dust-stop, so that the essential – but allergen free – unfold oils during eating and breathing their beneficial effects. Besides, you get a very fragrant barn. Also, food should of course be free of dust and mold-free. Prevention of Headshaking

The best prevention is a 100% natural and as much as possible practicable “organic” feeding horses and an attitude with plenty of fresh air (but allergen avoidance where or as possible), adequate exercise, contact with other cattle, and a friendly and prudent handling of our four-legged friends horses. “Headshaking in horses is not a vice, but a multifaceted disease that needs to be considered and treated! ” Questions about Headshaking in horses?

Cold sores (herpes labialis) History –

chapter For cold sores (herpes labialis) a recurrent history is typical. The first infection with the causal herpesviruses runs often so mild that clear signs of herpes on the lip fail. However, the viruses remain in the body forever. In a reactivation of herpes viruses occurs then the second infection, the visible sores. In the course of life can occur for herpes labialis typical cold sore again (the distances between the outbreaks can be of different lengths). Reactivation of herpes viruses, however, can also run quietly. With a slightly extending Herpes on the lip it comes to spontaneous healing – so the symptoms disappear by themselves. © Jupiterimages / Fuse If cold sores on for the first time, he usually sounds off by itself. complications If the excitation of cold sores (herpes labialis) arrive in the course of infection to other parts of the body, this can lead to complications. A severe variant of the herpes simplex infection, for example, the involvement of the eye – especially the cornea (keratoconjunctivitis Herpetic): corneal scars and corneal opacity may result and lead to impaired vision and even blindness.
