Common Questions and Answers about Glucosamine and diabetes in dogs


4105307 tn?1369535032 Either way, we had started insulin twice a day and had decided we would continue as long as she was a happy cat. Vitamins and glucosamine tablets seemed to help. We gave her FortiFlora, a powder in a packet, for diahrrea as needed. Problems from the cushings disease are unpredictable and different for each cat. This site was very helpful and you will find other owners that reached out to help and provide encouragement (lynn12358 and opus88). Tink had all the common symptoms...
Avatar f tn I take phenergan myself for constant nausea, and discovered late in the game that dogs can also take phenergan. It didn't work quite as well as the reglan, but at that point we tried anything we could get our hands on. Over the counter Dramamine for motion sickness can be tried as it is metabolized in the liver - got that info from an ER vet nearby.
1358341 tn?1282213443 For this reason the vet has prescribed Aluminum Hydroxide, it is your basic antiacid but since it only came in liquid form and it would be too stressful to give twice a day to my cat I called a specialty pharmacy and they compounded it into powder in a capsule and I open the capsule up and give it to her twice a day, every 12 hours. This is so she can eat canned foods that may not be "acceptable" in the levels of Phosphorus, etc..

Shaine....
Avatar n tn Sometimes several times a day, sometimes none at all. I also have been getting increasingly stiff in my lower back, neck and legs. And my feet are feel like boards they are so stiff and very painful. Also getting a bit moodier than normal and having some trouble concentrating. I hope that I don't alarm anyone here but after doing a lot of internet searching and then speaking with a nurse friend and a doctor - not a formal visit, just a private conversation - things may be pointing to MS.
Avatar n tn Im using the original DHEA i'll check the brand name and tell you. I take 1X 25mg in the morning and 1 in the evening. Im self medicating on it so im scared to increase the dose. I just want to prepare myself in advance for our next IVF. Good luck to both of you.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn I took him to the vet and she didn't give me a dignosis she just gave him some anti-nausea/diharria medicine. It has been about four days since and he had vomited twice, not in the same day and is acting normal. I am forced to alternate him between wet and dry foods because after a while he refuses to eat the dry food, but he will go back to the dry food. I feed him Science Diet Lamb & Rice meal (dry) and Ceasar (wet).
Avatar f tn He gained 17 lbs on that diet, (what a shock that was), anyway his vet had us change to dry food, 2 c in am and 1 c in pm. That seems too little to me. Tyson is not an overly active dog. Thank you for your time.
211940 tn?1267884866 nor does it start in the shoulder as in the case of bursitis mentioned above. It starts and ends in the middle of my humerous, on the outside side (away from my body). Your posting is the first I have found that offers anything close to a similar symptom.
Avatar n tn After a few days of not eating their liver can suffer so I took them back in and they got the fluid and supplements to help for the day, and acid reflux pills and something to induce an appetite. Well one is fine now but my other is still not eating or drinking, no energy, won't play. Just curls up to the heat register and stares at the wall. Took him back for X-rays and nothing! So he is now overnight on an IV drip. I pick him up tomorrow. I can't stop crying.
1358341 tn?1282213443 Research also shows that even very high protein diets do not make renal failure worse in cats (although high protein does worsen the disease in dogs and humans). (One pet food maker recently completed a study it claims shows that its restricted-protein diet increases lifespan in CRF cats. However, because the study has not yet been published, it is impossible to evaluate the data, which is contradicted by other research.
426862 tn?1203591148 treating her arthritis with lower-cost drugs such as regular doses of glucosamine/condroitin (a $27 bottle has lasted six months) and several brief, gentle walks daily has helped reduce her pain and increase her strength. i give her half a tylenol on cold, wet days when her old bones ache! a good soft bed is important. plenty of fiber in the food is vital. i spend about $20 more monthly on a prescription diet designed to add fiber and firm up the stools.
Avatar n tn She is difficult to get into a vehicle and to the vet due to her size and lack of mobility and eyesight. I cant' find any vet in my area who is willing to come to my home to check her over. Any ideas as to what may be happening with her? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
931217 tn?1283484935 If it is false, which I believe it is, it is at best a benign placebo, but as you shall read in the embedded link, it is at worst a harmful form of charlatanism, perpetrated on people (and animals owned by like minded people) who are at their most vulnerable and at risk. That is an immoral circumstance. The fact that all is not known in medical science, and that some disease cannot be cured, much less palliated, does not justify selling fraud infused with false hope.
Avatar f tn Oh, she does have arthritis and is on a coated aspirin daily along with omega 3 fish oil and glucosamine/msm. She isn't lame yet, though. Thank you in advance and sorry if this is hard to follow.
Avatar f tn I just have to ask about my female chow mix, 14 years old. I am wondering for the signs to put her down, so she will avoid misery. Now, I do know if a dog won't eat, or if a dog "checks out," or has terminal illness, the dog is put down. We're seniors, enjoy dogs, we know the drill. But I don't know so much about just a plain old dog. She's the first to be the way she is. All the others showed the signs I said.
Avatar f tn seem depressed and I haven't seen him wag his tail in months and months 13.had a urinary tract infection, but got that cleared up thyroid problem diabetes pot bellie My Vet put him on Ophiopogon 200GM, started out with 1 tsp twice a day. Well, he didn't bug me all day to eat and drank less water and went potty less,but he was very lethargic. The Vet cut him down to 3/4 tsp twice a day, he has a little more energy but was hungrier, so I have upped it a little more.
Avatar f tn It typically results from a benign adrenal or pituitary tumor, but can also be the result of administering cortical steroids such as prednisone as a medication. It is more common in dogs than it cats and older cats have a higher incidence.
Avatar f tn Some glucosamine and MSM products are tasteless powder products that you put in wet food.
Avatar m tn I looked up groaning in dogs and found this website. My dog (a 4yr. old Greyhound) started groaning about a month ago. At first I thought it was because he was in pain, but as several others mentioned, when I check out his legs and body, (and teeth) no complaints from him at all. He groans when he lays down (frequently) and several times while laying on the couch. Sometimes he will wake up from sleeping, stretch, groan and go back to sleep or shift positions, groan and settle again.

670955 tn?1226601500 Karla Attack Of The Killer Grains Part II In our last article we talked about how grains contribute to Struvite crystals in cats and dogs. Struvite crystals are common in normal urine and can cause infections in dogs. When the crystals are present in large amounts, they can form stones. Struvite crystals are almost always accompanied by bacteria that create a high alkaline pH. A pet fed a diet consisting of a high percent of grains or starch creates the high alkaline in the urine.
Avatar n tn Actually she just did a DEXA and she is absolutely fine, no ostheoporosis at all. She actually is still in pain after one week of the diagnosis and she has to go ahead at pain killers...

Avatar n tn I feel tired, lethargic, my bones ache in the morning esp in my feet. I'm in bed asleep by 10-30....and now i've developed a fissula, a perenanal abcess. My doctor thinks it may be because since the interfeon my immune system is v.low to warding off infections. Are these symptoms shared by others.
Avatar n tn It is also sensitive to the touch and I sometimes get stabbing pains in the same area. In June it started as a quarter size it has increased to my whole front leg. I do have an appt. for an MRI next week, but am very curious about this until I get a final diagnosis. The doctor I chose to go to did not offer much info...he thinks I may have a damaged nerve in my back. He also told me during my exam that I have 'brisk reflexes' and had asked me if I had always had 'brisk reflexes'.
3119293 tn?1342054132 You should start feeling really normal in about four to six weeks. Energy will return in spurts; eat healthy and get some exercise and that will help things along.
Avatar f tn From time to time, this everyday level of tremor can increase so that it becomes more noticeable. Occasional noticeable tremor is common in people of all ages, and very common in older people, and does not necessarily mean that you have any sort of medical condition. It can be caused by tiredness, stress, anxiety, or anger. A raised level of adrenalin in your body, which can happen when you become excited or angry, can often cause a noticeable tremor.
1237997 tn?1272128418 I could only imagine what damage those claws could have done. When I was a child, we always had kittens and dogs. Once we had a pet chicken in Manhattan. We named her "Brocky", because she would make those sounds. Brock, brock. She would lay eggs for us daily even though there was NO rooster around. When my parents moved to the country in Arcadia, Florida, we had many more pets.
