Epinephrine for dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Epinephrine for dogs


1916673 tn?1420236870 BUN levels can be reduced by restricting the intake of protein (hence the useful impact of renal specific dog food for chronic kidney failure dogs) and by increasing the intake of fluids (the administration of IV fluids is particularly effective). BUN levels can fall below normal, if something has damaged the liver and is preventing it from producing urea. Abnormal blood circulatory conditions that interfere with the movement of blood around the liver can have the same effect.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.

If so, did your doctor draw blood and test these levels during a tilt? That can be very informative. If it helps at all, my levels were, pre-tilt: Dopamine - less than 20, Epinephrine - 25, Norepinephrine - 316; during tilt: Dopamine - less than 20, Epinephrine - less than 10, Norepinephrine - 258.
Avatar f tn You would have needed to be in the vet's office when Molly first had her reaction to give her a fighting chance once she started to crash or had Benadryl and also had epinephrine at home,then race for the vet's office...YOU did not know or expect to need anything to help her out of a reaction to vaccinations so try not to beat yourself up over "I could have,should have" you sound like a very loving,caring dog owner. My heart truly aches for you...RUN FREE 'lil Molly girl...
Avatar n tn We are going for Christmas. His Sister has a Inside dog and his parents both smoke. In the winter he is continually miserable up north because the houses are closed up tight to keep out the cold, but it keeps his triggers in. He tries to spend time outdoors but the winters are brutal and you can not stay out long periods. The cold air doesn't help when his chest is already closing off from either the smoke or the dog depending on whose house we are at.
Avatar f tn In addition to the vomiting and diarrhea she would have had very pale gums, her pulse would have been very weak and her heart rate would have been very rapid. Normally the antidote for anaphylaxis is an injection of epinephrine, which should be administered preferrably within a few minutes of her having the reaction. What type of vaccination(s) did she receive?
1742220 tn?1331360327 things are going backwards for me, idk why. I am trying. I keep telling you this, maybe you blame me, maybe you don't believe me but I am trying. all I feel like doing is crying, I have felt this way for hours. today started ok. I had a decent nights sleep and a decent day at work. I planned some stuff for Hedi and it went well. idk if she appreciated it but it went well. Hosh was ok. I did ok with him tho he seems super out of it and falls asleep a lot, in L's class as well.
Avatar f tn I had to have a vet euthanize one of my two lovely 6 year old cattle dogs (Molly) on Tuesday 24/02 (both dogs sisters and always together). Went camping and one of my dogs picked up a paralysis tick, I thought I checked them over really well when we returned, however somehow missed this one. By the time I realised what was happening four days after returning, it was only a matter of minutes before she could not stand at all.
1666434 tn?1325265950 It is physically impossible to be allergic to epinephrine (epinephrine is the same as adrenaline). Our bodies produce epinephrine all the time. Also, local anesthetic cartridges contain two active ingredients: the actual anesthetic e. g. lidocaine and epinephrine. Most people who have a genuine allergic reaction to local anesthetics are not allergic to the actual anesthetic agent. It is much more common (though still rare) to be allergic to preservatives in the local anesthetic solution.
685623 tn?1283485207 So this story caught my eye this weekend and I am just not really sure how to react. The Canadian Medical Journal posted an editorial in which the writer criticized Air Canada's allowance of small pets to travel in the cabin of planes as an "unnecessary allergic hazard" The editorial called for a ban on all pets in the cabin of planes.
Avatar f tn He finally settled for a bit, and we slept a few hours. Then, the next morning, the 7th, he vomited again. Just a little this time, mostly yellow, I'm assuming this was bile. He did walk around, and even barked a little at passerbys from our porch. He then laid with me on the couch, and I laid on him and hugged him tight. I then went up to take a shower and he came quickly as he always did to be with me in the bathroom. When I went to open the door, he would not move.
Avatar f tn find out who the doc was that made headway in your specialty, Look to the New England Journal of Medicine, look to who has submitted course studies for other docs, get referrals from the top dogs in the field...do not short change yourself or your daughter and then when everything else has been axhausted then sit down and seriously think about the implant....
Avatar n tn The only other thing that I know to suggest is to make a visit to your vet at the first opportunity. Get the dog checked out if she is still symptomatic, and ask for more detailed advice about what to do in a similar situation in the future. The doctor might (or might not) want to prescribe something stronger for you to have on hand, but I doubt that he or she would consider doing that unless you were to actually come in to the office and talk face-to-face.
Avatar f tn For meds I have found that adding Zonegrann to my cocktail has done the trick to help control the skin sensitivity. For anxiety/depression I am on Zoloft, Strattera and Lyrica, for Restless Legs, I am on, Requip. Yes, it does seem like a lot to me also, but it works, and finally I get some relief. Exercise, like the eliptical machine 30 minutes or so daily does wonders for my anxiety/muscle twitching and depression, really as strong as any drug I take.
Avatar f tn I took him back to the same ER Vet and they prescribed some Prednisone pills for about 10 days. They did not seem concerned with the discharge. He has been on the Prednisone for 8 days and we are weening him off of it, but his skin still looks irritated and red. And he continues to have discharge, and he licks his self obsessively. I am not sure if the discharge and the allergy are related at all, but I am concerned.
Avatar n tn Wendell Barfield DVM or www.doctoryourself.com (the latter is primarily for people, but much applies to dogs as well, and you can find info for pets on this site). Read and educate yourself. Someone might suggest that dogs don't need Vitamin C because they make their own and this is true. However, stresses, illness, injury all deplete Vitamin C faster than the dog can make it; older dogs need more.
Avatar f tn Plasma exchange (plasmapheresis) helps reduce symptoms in some individuals, but this treatment is typically reserved for those with life-threatening respiratory decline. For others, intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) is helpful. Physical therapy may help relieve symptoms related to prolonged muscle tension, but it may also trigger muscle spasms. Corticosteroids may help as well, though they must be carefully given to those with diabetes.
Avatar f tn I tried a ton of anti-depressants but they didnt add up to the pain pills. Before and during. I took pain pills in the past for a car accident and dental procedures and even after having my children and I NEVER got hooked......I feel that I cant get the household chores done unless I am high. I took my last 2 percocet last night and decided that was it. I am done. I am not there for my kids like I am supposed to be. I am constantly worrying when, where and how many pills I have or going to get.

Avatar n tn Of course, a million things run through your mind when something like this happens. For me, it helps to understand what may have happened. I hope someone has the answers but, understand that they can only be speculation. My 6 year old Bulldog Francis, was in excellent condition. I've always feared him growing over weight as bulldogs often do so, kept him on a very healthy diet. He has always been in the best health. He was not subjected to any trauma that I'm aware of.
470217 tn?1360568961 I'm wanting to quit, and looking for input about my plan as well as just plain 'ol support. I originally took them for legit pain issues but honestly I don't know if I even have pain anymore. And I took more than I should have. I read how addictive they were and did not even attempt to stop. I knew it would be a big deal once I did. I didn't like how they made me feel at first, and can't say I ever really did. I just didn't know when it would be a good time to stop.
544292 tn?1268886268 I've been feeling like I was going crazy for a long time. And in addition to that; the scary suicidal ideation. The suicidal ideation vanished and returns ONLY if I get a flare up of withdrawal symptoms. That happens if I get over stressed. So i need some coping mechanisms. At the moment; "I am STILL ALVE!?" Is a pretty good coping mechanism! :) Love and healing, Emily PS. No Tramadol Withdrawal symptoms today .... :) YAY!
Avatar f tn I love to exercise and my dogs need a walk!!! Today I went for a lower back MRI and had a hard time holding still because of feeling crampy and cold. All of the docs say it is a coincidence that any of my problems started shortly after receiving the implant. I have sent blood in for the Melisa test, but wonder if a reaction will show being I was not able to refrain from using inhalers for five days. The implant has adhered to the bone and looks "perfect".
551343 tn?1506834118 It seems to help some of my symptoms, but I still wonder if I'm too far along for it to make a big change. It is prescribed for PPMS and has shown some positive results in slowing down the progression of MS. I just take it a day at a time and pray for good things. I try not to let my health consume my every waking moment, but as is human nature, I long for a dx, as much for validation as for peace of mind.
Avatar n tn If it's an allergy (for me) I think it might be to MSG, if it's an intolerance (again for me) at the moment I'm thinking it's to very fatty foods. It's always worse when I'm stressing about something. Does any of that apply to you? You can get IBS tabs over the counter (we can here in UK anyway). Or you might want to try testing out foods to see if you are allergic/intolerant. It's a pain to do this (I keep meaning to, but haven't yet).
