Treatment: If a pancreatic or liver tumor is identified and able to be surgically excised, the skin lesions may normalize for an extended period of time, but because these tumors metastasize (spread to other areas of the body) quickly, surgery is not curative. In cases of end stage liver disease, surgery is not possible, and the goal of therapy is to increase quality of life and decrease uncomfortable skin lesions with supportive care and addressing the nutritional abnormalities. Supportive care includes supplementing protein and necessary minerals and enzymes through the diet and oral supplements or by weekly intravenous amino acid infusions that are performed in the hospital on an outpatient basis until improvement in the skin is noted. Unfortunately, despite the supportive care, the disease will progress.
Thank you very much for taking the time out to post this!! MY Australian Shepard is itching so bad that it’s causing patches of hair to come out. Took her to the Vets today and everything was negative so far. So they’re assuming it’s allergies. They prescribed a steroid with antihistamines along with Antibiotics bc she has a low grade fever. I’m concerned bc I gave her a dose of the steroids and she’s nonstop itching now!! She’s also lost 5 lbs since June. And she’s not a big dog as it is. She’s only 37 lbs. Small for an Aussie. I’m going to check out your video. Praying tbis helps her. We’re all very concerned about the weight loss though. Thanks again!!
Riddle me this? How do two doctors send a diabetic home with steriods for an undisclosed condtion? And never did they mention and changes I might need to be aware of, being a diabetic. Not to menation, the fact that they couldn’t figure out or even consider psorisis now that I have learned more about it, it’s pretty common. I’m not a doctor and I wasn’t aware of this disease. What I have become aware of, is if you catch it early you can take steps to minimize the breakout hence pain. I’m considering taking further action.
