Pancreatitis: Information and Definitions

January 28, 2007 by Maria-Elena Cloherty, DVM

This is a disease that annually strikes many animals, most notably our cats and dogs. The importance of this article is to make owners aware of the signs, symptoms, diagnostics, and treatment options should their pet be afflicted. Also, I have added information regarding how to avoid the disease &/or its recurrence.

Hyperadrenocorticism a.k.a. Cushing’s Disease

December 24, 2006 by Maria-Elena Cloherty, DVM

Cushing’s disease, or hyperadrenocorticism is a disorder caused by excessive production of cortisol by the adrenal cortex. Too much adrenal hormone, in particular corticosteroids are produced.

Approximately 85-90% of the naturally occurring cases of this disease are due to bliateral adrenocortical hyperplasia resulting from pituitary corticotroph tumors or hyperplasia with oversecretion of ACTH.

Acute Moist Dermatitis (a.k.a Hot Spots)

October 26, 2006 by Maria-Elena Cloherty, DVM

Since many of my latest appointments were scheduled due to seasonal allergies flaring-up, and related skin conditions, I thought this to be a timely issue for many pet owners.

Acute Moist Dermatitis, or Hot Spots, is self-trauma to the skin caused by pet due to either an underlying pruritic (itchy) condition, or painful condition.

Things that need to be ruled-out by your veterinarian with your help, should this occur in your pet are any or a combination of the following:
