6 IVDD DNA TEST (INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISEASE IN DOGS) There eis a cheek swab test with results being available in 5-10 business days. You will receive a full report explaining your results. Tests are available from UC Davis. The test is available on the UC Davis website and is $50. Overview of IVDD IVD disease in the dog is a common clinical disorder man infested by pain, a partial loss of limb function, paralysis, and sometimes a loss of feeling in the hind limbs. It can occur in the neck (cervical) area, the middle of the back (thoracic-lumbar region) or in the lower (lumbosacral) region of the back. It occurs most frequently in the award (chondrodystrophic) breeds such as the Dachshund, Pekingese, Shih Tzu, Basset Hound or American Cocker Spaniel. It can occur in other breeds such as the German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever and others. It has been reported in cats but is rare. The IVD is located between each vertebra. The normal IVD consists of a hard fibrous outside ring (the annulus) and a soft gel like center (the nucleus pulpous). The function of the IVD is to connect the vertebrae and act as a shock absorber. Degeneration of the IVD occurs when the center (nucleus Pulposus) begins to dehydrate or lose water. A dehydrated disk no longer functions as a good shock absorber. In the chondrodystrophic dog, generation of the IVD begins between two months and two years of age. Usually by one year of age, 75% to 100% of all IVDs have undergone degeneration in the chondrodystrophic dog. This type degeneration occurs rapidly and is frequently followed by mineralization of the IVD. A different type of IVD degeneration occurs in the nonchondrodystrophic dogs; it is a slow aging process most evident between eight and ten years of age and is rarely accompanied by mineralization. IVD disease usually means the nucleus pulpous pushes its way into the spinal canal and presses against the spinal cord. The signs seen in an animal with an IVD protrusion, extrusion or rupture varies with location, the onset of the problem (sudden versus slow or gradual) and the Page 6

7 severity of the spinal cord compression or concussion. Sometimes the nucleus pulpous explodes into the spinal canal and hits the spinal cord with a lot of force (concussion). More often it slowly pushes its way into the spinal canal causing pressure on the spinal cord (compression). And the longer the duration of the compression, the more severe are the signs because of inflammation and reduced blood supply to the spinal cord. Signs and Symptoms What the owner may notice in their dog will also vary with the location and the severity of the spinal injury. Some things to notice are not wanting to eat, a tight or tense abdomen, crying or yelping when mo ling or picked up, and a reluctance to go up or down stairs, to jump or go for a walk. Other signs can e an arched back, shaking or trembling, weak (wobbly) legs or knuckling of the paws. In the more extreme cases, the dog will lose function and only be able to drag the hind limbs. Dogs with IVD in the neck will often hold the head down when walking, have muscle spasms in the neck and will cry out in pain when moved. Diagnosis The diagnosis of IVD disease is made using combination of physical and neurologic examinations plus radiographs (x-rays) and other advanced imaging of the spine. If your dog is suspected of having IVD disease, your veterinarian will recommend radiographs of the spine and most often a CT scan or an MRI. In some instances, a pyelogram will be performed. A pyelogram is performed by injecting a contrast dye around the spinal cord and making additional radiographs to demonstrate the location of the IVD problem. After a diagnosis of IVD disease, treatment can be recommended. Medical therapy and surgical therapy or a combination seeks to alleviate the pain and nay neurologic deficits. Many paralyzed patients that lost feeling in the legs can often be helped; however, when a condition termed myelomalacia develops, there is bleeding inside the spinal cord and the condition becomes hopeless. As with many diseases, an early diagnosis improves the chances of recovery. Treatment and Aftercare Page 7

8 Medical treatment is indicated for initial presentations with only pain or mild loss of limb function, if the owners are unable to afford additional treatment, in patients considered high anesthetic risks and when diagnostic tests do not show pressure on the spinal cord. Methods of medical treatment should include very strict confinement (2-4 weeks), pain relief (but not aspirin or other NSAIDs) and a muscle relaxer. Acupuncture therapy may also provide pain relief for some patients. If the patient cannot voluntarily urinate, it is important to learn how to express or evacuate the bladder at least 3 times a day. The area of confinement (usually a carrier or crate) should have plenty of soft bedding. Surgical treatment is indicated when the spinal cord is compressed and when extremely severe pain is correlated with the IVD disease. Surgery is highly successful in the hands of a trained vet neurosurgeon and its advantage over medical treatment is the completeness and rapidity of recovery. In surgery, a portion of the side or bottom of the vertebrae is removed and the exuded or ruptured nucleus pulpous is removed from inside the spinal canal. This takes the pressure off the spinal cord. The surgical incision takes about 2 weeks to heal and generally when the patient can control bladder and bowel function, they can go home The average post- surgical stay in hospital is about one week. After surgery, or after recovery following medical treatment, physical therapy is strongly advised. This can range from simple exercises you can do at home to a program that includes massage therapy and swimming exercises at a physical therapy unit. Aftercare is managed according to your pet s needs. Acupuncture is another form of aftercare recommended by some. In addition to helping your pet regain the ability to walk, it is most important the aftercare treatment include managing the bladder function. Keeping the bladder empty and using certain drugs to stimulate the ability to urinate are very important. Prognosis Pets with minimal to no neurologic deficits and well controlled pain usually have a fair to good prognosis for recovery with medical treatment. Those with more severe signs, with a severely compressed spinal cord and with preservation of sensation in the limbs have a good to excellent prognosis for recovery with successful surgery and aftercare. The prognosis for recovery of neurologic function begins to drop with patients that experience a loss of feeling in the limbs and surgery Page 8

9 should be performed on these patients as soon as possible to maximize the chances of recovery. IVD disease is not fatal except in those patients that develop bleeding inside the spinal cord. In dogs that lose sensation in the limbs, recovery can occur up to two months after the incident. Dogs that do not recover sensation and other neurologic functions can be maintained with a high quality of life using carts and having the owners assist them with bladder expression. Earlier treatments generally result in better outcomes. Return to Karen s Korner CBD DOG Health Launches New Pet Products Containing Healing Cannabinoids TAMPA, Fla., July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CBD DOG Health, an innovative company offering healing and nurturing CBD oil-based products for canines, announced the launch of three new collections of products containing healing cannabinoids at the recent SuperZoo pet industry trade show in Las Vegas. The new product collections contain full-spectrum hemp oil with multiple cannabinoids including CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBDA, which all work in concert to reduce anxiety, slow tumor growth, reduce bacteria, treat hot spots and skin problems, reduce pain, and provide a host of other positive benefits for pets. "Recent changes in legislation regarding hemp have caused an increased interest in CBD, so we thought it only appropriate to announce our new lines of products at the largest pet show in the U.S.," said Angela Ardolino, Founder and CEO of CBD DOG Health. "CBD Dog Health was the only company at SuperZoo with salves. And, our products had the highest concentration of full spectrum hemp oil with CBD, making our booth a favorite." The CBD DOG Health products unveiled at SuperZoo include lines of CBD Oils, CBD Topicals, and CBD Treats: The CBD Oil collection offers products cleverly named for their primary health benefits including CALM, EASE, and HEAL varieties and all containing full spectrum hemp oil and CBD. The CALM oil also features the soothing power of lavender. EASE Oil, containing a special proprietary blend of curcumin-rich Turmeric and Frankincense, can provide relief from aches and pains, inflammation, joint pain, arthritis, and intestinal disorders. HEAL Oil offers pets pain management for discomfort resulting from autoimmune diseases, cancer, seizures, Cushing's disease, and many other ailments. Page 9

10 CBD Topicals come in a variety of salves, including REMEDY, NOURISH, and SOOTHE, which are scientifically designed to help alleviate dry skin, treat skin cancers, aid hot spots, treat dermatitis, and provide a range of other benefits. Dogs can also enjoy the benefits of CBD oil in a delicious snack, with the company's All-Natural Freeze-Dried Salmon Treats. Made with wild-caught Alaskan salmon, each CBD Treat is free of added synthetics or additives, and contains CBD oil from non-gmo hemp, grown without herbicides or pesticides. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in the hemp plant and is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks. The oils used in all CBD DOG Health products feature full spectrum or whole-plant CBD, but only trace amounts of THC, so dogs receive the extraordinary health benefits of all the plant's cannabinoids without any psychoactive effects. And the insignificant amounts of THC mean these products are legal in all 50 states. Ardolino is one of the only professionals in the pet-care industry with an advanced education in cannabis science and medical use, which she combined with her 25-years of experience caring for animals to create CBD DOG Health. "The benefits of CBD oil have had a transformative effect on the health of my dogs and the dogs I care for," said Ardolino. "These products combine my two passions: spreading the word about CBD and caring for my beloved dogs. I use our products on my dogs every day, and I am thrilled to bring the amazing benefits of CBD to millions of pets."

For more information, visit Return to Karen s Korner Dogs undergoing surgery to prevent gastric bloat Nina C George Gastric bloat, known medically as gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV), is a problem that afflicts bigger pet dogs, and can be fatal. Veterinarians Metrolife spoke to said they see 18 to 20 cases in a year. The condition is more likely to occur in purebred dogs, since they have narrow and deep chest cavities, they say. About 24 per cent of large-breed dogs such as Doberman, Irish Setter, Weimaraner and German shepherd, 22 per cent of giant breeds such as St Bernard and mastiff, and 42 per cent of Great Danes suffer from it, says Dr Ramesh Jangra, senior veterinary surgeon, Cessna Lifeline Veterinary Hospital. Early detection is important because 50 per cent of dogs with the condition die if treatment is delayed. What triggers this condition? Most dogs develop it within a few hours of eating a heavy fermented meal, followed by exercise, because there is space in the stomach cavity and the stomach gets twisted to one side. They are not able to burp and expel the gases. This reaches a stage where the blood vessels are compressed and blood flow to the hind area is restricted, explains Ramesh. The initial signs include trying to vomit with nothing coming out, the flow of saliva with a frothy liquid, a distended abdomen, and restlessness. Page 11

12 Dr Ramesh says gastropexy is the solution to bloating. This is a process where we suture the stomach with the abdomen wall. This avoids the twisting of the stomach. After surgery, 90 per cent of dogs survive. Anjali Haridass lost a boxer and a St Bernard to the condition. The boxer died first and in the case of St Bernard we couldn t get him to the hospital in time. He died on the way, recalls Anjali. She currently has two Great Danes and two English Mastiffs. As soon as I learnt that bloat is a condition that develops in bigger dogs, I got gastropexy done on both our Great Danes. This is a preventive measure, says Anjali. The procedure is being increasingly done in the US and most pet parents are now learning about it. What is gastric bloat (GDV)? Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus is a life-threatening condition in dogs in which the stomach flips over and expands because of gases generated inside. Circulation to the stomach and spleen is subsequently interrupted, resulting in shock, which can cause death within hours. Preventive Measures Avoid breeding dogs with a history of GDV Preventive Gastropexy can be performed during sterilization How Successful is Gastropexy? Of dogs treated for GDV, 4.3 percent have a recurrence, compared to 54.5 percent of those that do n to undergo gastropexy. Read more at: Return to Karen s Korner Page 12
