Though there is a slight
difference in animals
and humans but in
general they have the
same organ systems. The
are very similar. Humans
can be diverse in
thought and have the
most intelligent central
nervous system. Animal
may excel in Vision
ability to see in the
dark, ability to hear
frequencies which humans
cannot, ability to
detect danger which we
cannot. Ability to
which we cannot.
The treatment of our pets is very
similar to humans and the same drugs work. Our new autoimmune
diseases e-book is a excellent guide for treatment on 101 autoimmune
Coming down to diseases animal suffer they same
problems like humans and treatment is the same.. If you have any
questions about your Pets health and autoimmune disease please
contact us. The German Sheppard which fall down instead of attacking
have Narcolepsy and can be treated.
The most common disease in Animals is AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE.
The anemia, seizures , arthritis are all autoimmune. Please
read our E-Book for simple treatment
guidelines all fully reversiable.

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
in dogs and cats.
Scott-Ritchey Research Center, College of Veterinary Medicine,
Auburn University, Alabama, USA.
Over the past several years, we have accumulated data on a
spontaneous demyelinating peripheral neuropathy that is not well
identified in domestic animals. This disorder occurs in dogs and
cats of either sex and does not appear breed-related. Onset of signs
is usually insidious and the course is typically chronic, sometimes
relapsing, and often slowly progressive. Mature animals of any age
may be affected. Clinical signs include tetraparesis, sometimes
progressing to tetraplegia, stumbling gait, and hyporeflexia. Motor
nerve conduction velocities are decreased. Pathologically, changes
in teased single fibers from peripheral nerves are dominated by multifocal paranodal demyelination. Scattered, thinly myelinated
fibers are seen on semithin sections. Ultrastructural studies reveal
macrophages within myelinated fibers stripping the myelin sheaths,
naked and remyelinating axons, and focal/multifocal endoneurial
mononuclear cells. Indirect immunofluorescence revealed positive IgG
staining in peripheral nerve myelin sheaths from two dogs. The
course of the disease, clinical signs, electrophysiology, and
pathology have similarities to chronic inflammatory demyelinating
polyneuropathy in people.

Anemia is a disease, with a decrease in the number of red blood
cells (RBCs) , resulting in a decrease in the oxygen-carrying
capacity of the blood. Anemia can be caused by blood loss, decreased
production of new RBCs, or an increase in the rate of their
destruction, known as hemolytic anemia. In primary hemolytic anemia,
the RBCs can be attacked by autoantibodies, In
secondary type drugs, infectious disease, cancer, parasites,
or heavy metals , lead, and zinc have all been implicated as
potential cause hemolytic anemia.
IVIG given early will stop the disease process and colostrum will
also help as a supplemt.
Blood transfusions are rarely used. A foreign protein can
increase the crisis .
ITP is the destruction of "thrombocytes" by the immune
system in much the same manner as RBCs are destroyed in AIHA.
IVIg is FDA approved for ITP .
Autoimmune diseases of the skin
As a group, autoimmune diseases of the skin are increasing.
"Pemphigus is a group of autoimmune skin disorders
characterized by vesicles and bullae in the mouth and at
mucocutaneous junctions, those borders of haired skin and mucosal
tissues. Areas include the eyelids, lips, nostrils, anus can be
involved. pemphigus vegetans" are thick and irregular and
proliferate into vegetative lesions marked by oozing and pustules.
It is thought to be a more benign form of pemphigus vulgaris.
Pemphigus foliaceous is rarely found in the mouth or at
IVIG is off label approved for Pemphigus. Medicare accepts the
diagnose of pemphigus for IVIg treatment at home.
Systemic lupus erythematosis
The classic example of a multi-systemic autoimmune disease is
systemic lupus erythematosis (SLE), also known as lupus. Often
called the "great imitator, lupus can mimic nearly any other disease
state. The signs of SLE may be acute (sudden onset) or chronic and
are usually cyclic. A fluctuating fever that does not respond to
antibiotics is one of the hallmark signs, as is a stiff gait or
shifting lameness (polyarthritis, see below). Other signs may
include a hemolytic anemia or thrombocytopenia, leukopenia (a low
white blood count), or a symmetrical dermatitis, especially over the
bridge of the nose ("butterfly lesion,").

Immune-mediated polyarthritis can be seen in SLE as above or as
an independent finding. Several different specific diseases are
included in this classification, but the major signs are all
similar. A high fever, joint pain and swelling, and a lameness that
seems to shift from leg to leg are typical findings. In some cases
enlarged lymph nodes are found.
