by Melissa Alvarenga Haddad. MV. MS. CVA. CVT.

History

A 9 year old, intacted male Akita-Chow, showed signs of abdominal discomfort. While dog was palpated, a rounded mass was felt on the upper abdominal area, behind urinary bladder location and under sacral area, by the same time, the dog showed signs of pain. Through rectal palpation, prostate was dislocated cranially, what suggest an increase on the prostate size. With this, the patient was submitted to radiological and ultrasound assessment.

Equine Uveitis Resolved By Haliotis Powder And Bo Yun San

Equine Uveitis Resolved By Haliotis Powder And Bo Yun San

By Karin I. Derfuss, DVM, CVA

This is not a complicated case, but a very significant one for me because I thought of myself as a small animal practitioner. Horse pulses have been elusive, at best, and I always joke around that I have a veterinarian for my own horse. You just can’t do everything!

Cozee’s Early Cushing’s Disease Successfully Managed with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Formulas

Cozee’s Early Cushing’s Disease Successfully Managed with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Formulas

By Linda Mackinnon, DVM, CVA

Cozee is a 25 year old Arabian mare used for light pleasure riding. She has been my patient for over 10 years and been a healthy horse except for a bout of hoof abscesses in her front feet, approximately seven years ago. At that time, Cozee had two surgeries at a local equine hospital for hoof abscesses, but the abscesses reoccurred shortly after the second surgery. Cozee was treated successfully with acupuncture and Chinese herbal formula Hot Hoof II, and the abscesses never returned. Previous medical history included mild allergic dermatitis in the summer, involving her tail and ventral midline.
