Idk about supplements for the actual bones, like glucosamine and chondroitin, i think it's too little too late. But i would recommend, if it's not a problem for you, some medical mj to help her attitude and appetite and suppress nausea. Here i would just go to the dispensary and get cupcakes or vanilla ice cream (anything non-chocolate) 'cause blowing smoke in their face is just rude. Sorry if this is way out of line to you but i'm serious, most people out here who get the greatest benefit from being able to self medicate legally & conveniently have cancer. So if you can get some bake it into somethin yummy

Sondra Originally Answered: My wife suffers chronic pain from lupus. Joint pain, headaches,muscle pain, bone pain, sharp back pain and is?
The pain associated with lupus is usually a result of inflammation. The inflammation is the result of an immune system that has gone mad. If the inflammation is not treated the pain will return as soon as the drugs wear off. Lupus patients on pain management (which I think is a good idea in this case) often change meds periodically because patients can build up a tolerance to the pain medications, rendering them less effective. The pain causes anxiety (fear, depression, etc) which in turn aggravate the lupus and create more inflammation and pain. When you feel like your life and your body are out of control, of course you will be anxious. And telling someone to "just think positive" only causes more aggravation when you are in pain and afraid. You wife might considering seeing a pain management specialist for the pain and a good mental health counselor to deal with the emotional issues that come along with a chronic and incurable illness like lupus. Psychologists who work with oncology (cancer) patients are likely to understand the issues.

I think you need to ask your vet about this. Some supplements can actually interfere with the .effectiveness of any other medications or treatments she is getting. I'm really sorry about your Dobe. This breed is a heart stealer.

I have a friend in NY who has used, with great success, a machine called the ONDAMED. If you wish, send me more information about your pet's condition, where you live and I will see if it would be worth you taking her to someone close to you. Sincerely, Bruce I. Swartz [email protected]

Latanya Originally Answered: scar in the lungs, cancer or tuberculosis?
Lung scarring can result from a variety of infections, Occupational exposures; environmental exposures, and pulmonary diseases. Causes of lung scarring include pneumonia, lung infections, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, silicosis and sarcoidosis and tuberculosis. Excessive lung scarring can lead to thickening and stiffening of the lung tissue which can make breathing more difficult. Scar tissue can also be a result of damage due to cancer. 1) Pulmonary Fibrosis -Pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic disease causing inflammation and fiber-like scarring of the alveoli (air sacs) and interstitial tissues of the lungs. 20 Asbestosis- can cause lung scarring and lung cancer 3) Sarcoidosis. 4) Pleural thickening 5).For the past 7 decades, scars have been thought to play a causal role in lung cancer because lung cancers often arise in proximity to scar tissue. 6) Interstitial lung disease (ILD)- Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) is a general term that includes a variety of chronic lung disorders. When a person has ILD, the lung is affected in three ways. First, the lung tissue is damaged in some known or unknown way. Second, the walls of the air sacs in the lung become inflamed. Finally, scarring (or fibrosis) begins in the interstitium (or tissue between the air sacs), and the lung becomes stiff. Fibrosis, or scarring of the lung tissue, results in permanent loss of that tissue's ability to transport oxygen 7) Connective tissue or collagen diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic sclerosis 8) Hematological diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosis, 9) Rheumatoid arthritis 10) Dermatomyositis, 11) Polymyositis, 12) Sjogren's syndrome 13) Sarcoidoisis 14) Scleroderma 15) Genetic/familial 16) COPD- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Other diseases that can cause pulmonary fibrosis: Tuberculosis Rheumatoid Arthritis Systemic Lupus Erythematosis Systemic Sclerosis Grain handler's lung Mushroom worker's lung Bagassosis Detergent worker's lung Maple bark stripper's lung Malt worker's lung Paprika splitter's lung Bird breeder's lung Hermansky Pudlak Syndrome Infections. These include viral infections such as cytomegalovirus Radiation therapy Drugs-chemotherapy drugs, medications used to treat heart arrhythmias and other cardiovascular problems, certain psychiatric medications, and some antibiotics. Fibrosis or scarring in the lungs may increase the risk for lung cancer Corticosteroids are the drugs which are usually administered in an attempt to stop the inflammation and thus stop the progression of the disease.
