8412758 tn?1398017101 Veterinary Medicine is changing it's views on ACL/CCL tears in SMALL dogs.....The new line of thinking is that they DO NOT need repaired, but can heal just as well on their own..... Now, if this is could be a Patellar Luxation, then it would require surgery... I have done both surgery &/or no surgery on torn ACLs/CCLs.....They seem to heal fine either way......Mine (All cases) were restricted from doing more damage for 4 weeks....
Avatar n tn There is little in traditional veterinary medicine that will help, however, acupuncture, especially electro acupuncture and laser acupuncture could provide some benefit. There are also several Chinese herbal formulas that would be helpful, as well as a very high protein, wet or canned diet, which is grain free. The Chinese herbal formula's that may help include: Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang, and Shen Ling Bai Zhu San. You can purchase these online.
Avatar f tn Picking them out has left scarring on my face so I do not condone it however I can't hold it against anyone bc you feel it/them and it doesn't heal right away or feel better until you pick it out. So just exercise excellent hygiene in your personal surgery as to not worsen the situation. You are essentially removing the inner workings of the pore... The follicle wall... The sebaceous gland. Sometimes it grows back some times it doesn't.
685623 tn?1283485207 From my own experience, I had one of my recent cats (Fozzy) declawed conventionally and another one (Jazzy) declawed with a laser. Jazzy was up and batting at toys within a few hours after surgery while Fozzy did seem to mope and act sore for about 24 hours post op. So, bottom line is...if declaws are done, pain relief must be used! Declawed cats do lose a signficant portion of their defenses when you remove the claws...but don't consider them completely defenseless.
Avatar n tn Any pen laser action will do. End result: Jax has not required a trip to the vet in a year. His previous vet referred him to a surgeon, who said he was nowhere near needing surgery yet. He has a new vet now. GOOD LUCK!!
942557 tn?1272698419 Good news was there was no glaucoma (which is very difficult to treat in dogs), but she did have multiple other problems with her eyes including dry eye, cataracts and the retina problem. She had laser surgery to tack her retinas in place in December of 2009 and her vision has been stable since. We were so lucky to have figured out that this problem existed before there was profound vision loss. Eyes are tricky in dogs.
Avatar m tn 11 days ago, I had a dense cataract removed from my left eye and had a Crystalens AT-50 lens implanted. I am almost 54 years old. My right eye (my dominant eye) has good far vision but needs glasses to read. Ever since they removed the bandage on day 2, I have been able to read anything within 16 inches, but anything beyond that is considerably blurry.
626901 tn?1261876405 tanning (sometimes in the tanning bed) salt water baby powder cotton clothing I am trying to find out now if laser hair removal would be effective in treating this condition. Since they say it is often an issue w/ hair follicles, you would think that this would help. Let me know if you hear anything new! :) Thanks!
Avatar n tn Removal of the apocrine glands did help with my arms,the only bad thing is that the nerves are now dead in my armpits as well as the back of my arms.There is no guarantee that the surgery will be a success but it is definately worth a shot.Please check out and join the group @ yahoo.Its very informative.....
Avatar m tn She said they will probably do some laser treatment on my eyes. Now, in telling you about m infestation, I'd like to begin by saying that: if I were renting rather than buying this condo, I would have moved out of here long ago! Starting in September 2013 I discovered "something" in my carpets. I called Orkin exterminaters out and they were no help at all. The young inexperienced guy said I had no bugs or insects.
Avatar n tn Did your ENT recommend surgery for the severe deviated septum? I had sinus surgery in 2003 and only have had 2 sinus infections since. You may want to talk to your physician about septoplasty surgery and ask him if that would help. Also, before I had the surgery I used J's Nose Drops (available online) and that got rid of all of my sinus infections. There is also another product called "Bi Yan Pian" that works. It is also available online and very cheap.
Avatar m tn It is all over my body and getting worse. I'm in a panic as no one in the U.S. seems to know what to do. I've read so much of the same information. I just want to know if it can truly be stopped and if dermatological procedures can help reduce the look of the atrophy and sunken spots. Without trying to sound rude, I am not looking for what it is how how it manifests. That I have l learned.
Avatar f tn They said I had Crohns but was in remission because they removed it all in the surgery. Things seemed to get better and interestingly enough the PVC's went away for some time. I only got them occasionally when I'd have too much caffeine, lack of sleep, etc. Now their back a lot more but I also have been having a lot more heartburn, and I guess Gerd. I'm going to go back and see my GI on whether the Crohns is back or it's just the Acid Reflux or what's going on.
Avatar f tn They even thought I had an escape gallstone, but none was found in the last surgery. They have witnessed me in such an attack with no control over my pale complexion and vomiting. They now just give me drugs...and im at my wits end to find the root of the problem, so I keep them handy...although they just dull the pain and dont relieve it. I have discovered this frozen yogurt which seemed to nuke the gas from my system almost immediately...Julias Organic Yogurt with six different live cultures.
Avatar f tn You'll be amazed, not only does it clear up the skin problems but it also zaps fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage as a side benefit. I found the Laser Surgery Center of New Jersey - Dr. Sandy Milgraum - she's been on numerous TV shows so she's looks very reputable. I'm going to call to check the prices. She has a website if you want to look into it.
