Glossary for Animal Ailments

Dogs and Cats

Acral Lick Granulomas

Acral lick granulomas is a common problem in canines. Acral lick granulomas can occur secondary to allergies. Treatment for the allergy is often successful. Acral lick granulomas can also occur secondary to injuries, underlying bone infection, bacterial skin infection, parasites and other physical causes. Lesions are thought to be due to stress or boredom in some dogs and can be considered an obsessive/compulsive disorder in others. Try giving your pet msm.

Acne

Dogs and cats get acne, too. Acne in pets, can present itself as bumps on a dog's chin that resemble those seen with acne in people. In some cases this can be the result of allergic reactions. Plastic food bowels may be a source of these reactions in some dogs. MSM is good for acne in dogs so give them the recommended dosage below and remove all plastic food bowels.

Cataracts

If you catch cataracts in the early stages msm will help tremendously with blood circulation. Although msm is not a cure for cataracts. Please check with your veterinarian for the safety of your pet.

Diabetes

Genetic factors play a role in the cause of diabetes in dogs and cats as well as obesity. Weight loss is the first sign that something might be wrong. Dogs and cats lose their ability to process sugar. Dogs and cats begin to burn fat and thus lose weight. In this case, fat will accumulate in the liver, eventually leading to liver problems.

Diabetes Insipidus

Diabetes insipidus is a disorder in which the kidney is insensitive to a hormone, called anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) or, in which there is not sufficient quantity of the hormone available. The result is excessive drinking and urination. This is one cause of changes in urinary habits that leads to problems with urination inside the house. If your dog was house broken and suddenly begins urinating non-stop around the house, you know you have a problem and that problem may be Diabetes.

Epilepsy and Seizures

Dogs and cats both can get epilepsy. When a seizure occurs without explanation, the seizure becomes known as Epilepsy. Essentially, if a seizure can't be diagnosed, it's termed as epilepsy. If the Epilepsy occurs in the first two to three years of your pet's life, it may be congenital. Causes include brain tumors, viral disease, fungal infections, trauma and vascular diseases. Symptoms include, difficulty walking, gait problems, falling down and blindness. Each veterinarian has his or her own method of treating Epilepsy and most use MSM for treatment.

Feline Leukemia

Some cats can develop an immunity to this virus. In this case, the cat may never become ill from the virus. While some cats can suppress this disease, others have the virus running through their bloodstreams constantly. These are the cats that are considered carriers of the disease. In some cases, cats die from the initial infection. If a kitten tests positive for this disease, don't despair, as future tests may show up negative. The symptoms can present as bladder infections. Some breeds of cats are predisposed to such infections and as such, make diagnosis based upon the infamous "Bladder Infection" questionable. Try giving you cat msm. If adults are taking it, why not your cat?

Giardia

Giardia is a protozoan parasite that lives in the intestine of affected animals. Humans can also harbor Giardia, especially those with a compromised immune system. It is unclear whether there are several species of this parasite or whether there is one species that affects several different animals, including people. These small parasites are very easy to miss on a fecal examination and may not be present in the stool of animals infected with the organism. Use msm for this ailment.

Hip Dysplasia

Hip Dysplasia is rather hard to diagnose, as it can be present with or without clinical signs. This condition presents itself when the dog or cats limbs become lame one or both sides. Arthritis can develop making the condition even worse. Arthritis develops due to the malformation of the hip joint. Young dogs and cats may exhibit symptoms and pain during their younger years. A dog or cat will appear well until Arthritis begins to affect the them. Give them msm on a daily basis and watch how they improve.

Hot Spots

Hot Spots are rapidly appearing skin infections which show a oozing discharge. There's definitely something irritating your dog if he develops Hot Spots. No matter what, the dog is going to scratch and then cause inflammation when doing so. We've all witnessed our dogs at one time or another, scratching and or chewing or biting at their hind legs. The most common causes of this condition are fleas, allergies, tick bites, matting, mosquitoes and plain old hot summer days can cause the initial irritation. Put msm in their daily water and see how they do. You might be surprised.

Lupus eryhematosus

Lupus can affect pets as well as humans. In this disease the body is actually attacking its own immune system. The results of this process are traumatic to both the pet and pet owner. All sorts of health related systems can be affected at one time such as; kidneys, blood and skin. Veterinarians have been giving msm to pets with lupus for years. Give your pet some msm.
