O lúpus eritematoso sistêmico é uma doença imunomediada. Basicamente, significa que o sistema imunológico do cão começa a atacar a si mesmo. Normalmente, apresenta-se no nariz como neste caso da foto. É mais comum em certas raças, como pastores alemães, mas no caso da foto se trata de um beagle. Não há "cura", mas a prednisona ajuda a suprimir o sistema imunológico e, portanto, diminui os sintomas.
Este pobre rapaz está em tratamento com prednisona há uma semana, ele ainda é sente muitas dores, mas acredite ou não, está significativamente melhor do que na semana passada.

Basically this means the dog's immune system starts attacking itself. It typically presents on the nose like in this case. It is common in certain breeds, particularly German shepherds, seen here in a beagle. There is no "cure" but prednisone helps suppress the immune system and therefore lessens the symptoms. This poor guy has been on prednisone treatment for one week. He is still very painful on his nose but believe it or not this looks significantly better than it did last week!
I am not a hateful person so I don’t use the word often, but I HATE hemangiosarcoma. It’s one of the most aggressive forms of cancer that I see, and unfortunately I see it frequently. This is one of the big ones. It’s a hungry sombitch and it feeds and grows and spreads. It’s selfish and greedy. Since its goal is to grab up as much blood as possible we usually find it in areas like the spleen, liver, and heart. This is a more unusual presentation. This patient had a growth on the neck. Once they got inside they actually found it was attached to the carotid artery. The carotid is a BFD y’all. This major vessel is the blood supply to the brain, face, and neck. Ya know... some things you can’t live without. Here you can see that they were able to resect the tumor away from the artery (visible in the photos) but they found it impossible to get clean margins. Without clean margins (you have to take the tumor and then the tissue next to the tumor) the cancer is slowed only momentarily. Sweet Shadow began chemo after surgery and fought hard, but it just wasn’t enough. At the notorious 3 month mark the hemangiosarc had found its way to her lungs, and she lost the battle. See... I told ya. Hemangiosarcoma is a 🍆🖕🏼. RIP beloved Shadow. 🖤

Today we ‘celebrate’ #worldrhinoday . Maybe celebrate is not the right word for the day, maybe creating awareness day is a better. Creating awareness about the non-existing health benefits or magical powers of rhino horn, awareness that rhino horn is the same as yours and my hair and nails, awareness that we’re loosing our precious rhinos in a very rapid pace! Please help and create awareness, educate and explain. Only that way we can save our rhino! •Those are the few rhinos I helped and threatens after they fell victim to poaching. The first picture was a rhino who’s horn got caught in a snare, which we had to remove. The second and third picture was our recent poaching victim. And the fourth and fifth picture was a poaching victim in South-Africa, which I attended to with @savingthesurvivors. #rhino#stoppoaching#conservation#rhinoconservation#namibia check out this amazing song by Don Clarke and the Drakondale Grils Choir about rhino conservation (link in bio)

☝🏻“Never get too comfortable, there is always room for improvement.” •
Life is easy when it’s comfortable, right? ⛔️BUT easy doesn’t always equate to happiness and usually doesn’t lead to change. •
If you want something different, you have to change 👉🏻which means you have to challenge yourself... constantly. Whether it’s life, work, or fitness, never stop challenging yourself! •
🌱We continue to grow and improve ourseves as long as we continue to exist outside our comfort zones from time to time. •
I wanted to added an extra challenge to my workout yesterday. I could have held a weight (which comes in the next phase of this program) BUT I have this cool little balance circle in my collection. I thought I would try this move on an unsteady surface. 🤸🏼♀️
This is NOT required equipment for this program but I love balance-focused moves and I’m always looking for ways to improve my balance! It’s my journey and this is how I chose to challenge myself! Fitness is fun when you get creative and continue to try new things. •
How will you challenge yourself this weekend?!

From @cbsnews The #FDA has put out an alert regarding certain chewable flea and tick products that can cause seizures in dogs and cats. The drugs include Bravecto, Credelio, Nexgard and Simparica
While these treatments are considered to be generally safe and effective for use in cats and dogs, the FDA recommends pet owners consult with their veterinarian to review their pets' medical histories and determine whether the product is appropriate for their pet #petparenthood#petsafetytips#petparents#pethealthcare
I love when I can share some behind the scenes views of what I do. This was a procedure with one of our chimps, Sammy. He had broken 2 teeth and needed them fixed so we brought in a human dentist to do his root canals as well the the cardiologist to check on Sam's heart, because all great apes are known to have heart disease so we like to keep as close an eye on our chimps hearts as we can. I was just monitoring him under anesthesia at this point, just making sure all was running smoothly. I even intubated him, which is as close to incubating a human as I'll ever come. These exams are always stressful, but once the ball is rolling it's pretty smooth sailing. #vettech#zoolvt#vettechlife#chimpanzee#dental#behindthescenes
