Paws-ing for Pets: How to tell if you’re pet is hurt


IT IS NOW TIME FOR PETS, TODAY WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AN IMPORTANT TOPIC AND IT IS PAIN MANAGEMENT WITH YOUR PETS. NOW, OBVIOUSLY WITH PEOPLE WE CAN COMMUNICATE IT AND MAKE IT EASIER, BUT FOR PETS WE REALLY HAVE TO GET A THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS HAPPENING. SO, WELCOME BACK TO “RIVER CITY LIVE.”>>THANK YOU.>>AND LET’S START OUT, WHAT IS PAIN? WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF PAIN?>>DEFINITION OF PAIN IS WHEN THERE IS STIMULANTS IN THE BODY, USUALLY THROUGH PROJEST RHONE CASCADE, YOU GET INFLAMMATION AND THEN, YOU KNOW, PAIN THAT IS SECONDARY TO THAT INFLAMMATION.>>WHAT ARE WITH LOOKING FOR IN OUR PETS BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THAW DEW POINT COMMUNICATE VERBALLY. WE ARE LOOKING FOR NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION AND MAYBE JUST DIFFERENT WAYS THEY ARE ACTING TO HONE IN AND PICK UP ON WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO TELL US.>>ANIMALS WERE WILD SO THEIR SURVIVAL INSTINCTS PRESHENT THEM FROM SHOWING US THEIR VOCALLATION, WHIMMERRING OR IF THEY ARE QUIET AND WITHDRAWN, DEPRESSION, HOLD THEIR EARS FLAT, START TO NOT WANT TO RUN, JUMP, GET INTO THE FAVORITE SPOT, REALLY HAVE A HARD TIME GETTING UP.>>THESE ARE THINGS YOU WILL NOTICE RIGHT AWAY AND OBVIOUSLY, PHYSICALLY THEY WILL BE DIFFERENT AND LIMPING, WAGGING BEHIND IN WALKS, ALL THESE CHARACTERISTICS WILL AND UP AND BASICALLY NOT GOING TO BE NORMAL SELLV, RIGHT?>>YEAH, A CHANGE IN PERSONALITY IS DEFINITELY A BIG THING OR LIKE I SAID, JUST NOT WANTING TO BE TOUCHED IN CERTAIN SPOT THAT, IS A BIG THING OWNERS NOTICE.>>SO WHAT DO WE DO? WHAT IS THE RIGHT, I GUESS, ACTION WE TAKE. IS THIS SOMETHING THAT MIGHT BE A DAY, DO WE WAIT FOR IT TO GO BEYOND A DAY?>>I FEEL LIKE BASICALLY IF YOUR PET IS LIMPING IT IS EQUAL TO YOU RUNNING A MARATHON WITHOUT TRAINING. THAT IS HOW MUCH PAIN THEY ARE FEELING. EXPERTS DIDN’T REALIZE IT, THEY THOUGHT THEY DIDN’T FEEL PAIN. NO, THEY FEEL IT, THEY JUST DON’T SHOW IT. THEY MISS A MEAL, THEY TOUCH, THEY DON’T WANT TO GET UP, BRING THEM IN. THERE IS LOTS OF DIFFERENT PAIN MANAGEMENT WE CAN DO FOR MEDICINE TO COOL LASER THERAPY TO ACUPUNCTURE AND IT IS NOT LIKE 12-15 YEARS A I GO. DON’T GIVE YOUR ANIMALS YOUR MEDICINE, PLEASE. THEY CANNOT HANDLE IT. WE HAVE ANYTHING FROM NONSTEROIDALS TO GAB PENTIN WE BORROW FROM HUMAN MEDICINE. COLD LASER THERAPY GETS IN THERE AND ENERGIZES THE CELLS AND HELP REGENT RATE IN DIFFERENT WISE. YES, THERE IS DIFFERENT TREATMENTS THAT ARE NEEDED AND YOU HAVE TO MIX EASTERN AND WESTERN MEDICINE, THINGS ARE GETTING BAD. ACUPUNCTURE IS AMAZING HOW IT RELEASES THE INDOOR FINNS AN DIFFERENT HORMONE TOSS HELP THE BODY HEEL. I HAVE SEEN IT WITH DOGS GET UP AND DOWN.>>ACUPUNCTURE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR 10,000 YEAR FOREVER.>>YES.>>NOW WE APPLY IT TO PET, THAT IS FAIRLY NEW BRINGING IT OVER?>>NO, IT’S BEEN BEEN 15 YEARS BUT IT’S BEEN IN FLORIDA FOR A WHILE AND IT HAS BEEN CREATING WONDERFUL PROGRAMS FOR VETERINARIANS TO KNOW HOW TO TREAT THESE PET, PLUS, IF IT IS HERBAL MEDICINES YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH, TOO, IF WITH YOUR REGULAR MEDICINE. YOUR APPROACH IS EASTERN AND WESTERN MEDICINE, CORRECT?>>CORRECT.>>THAT IS IMPORTANT. WE OBVIOUSLY DO IT WITH PEOPLE, WHY NOT PETS.>>WHY NOT.>>IT A GOOD BALANCE WITH IT.>>DON’T FORGET WHAT YOUR DOCTOR RECOMMEND, PHYSICAL THERAPY AS WELL, YOU CAN’T FORGET HYDROTHERAPY AND WE HAVE ADVANCED CLINICS THAT DO THAT.>>WOW, HYDROTHERAPY, TOO. AGAIN, WHEN DO WE TAKE ACTION FOR THIS, AS SOON AS WE START TO KNOW A CHANGE IN PERSONALITY AND ALL THE TRAITS THAT YOU MENTIONED, THAT IS TIME TO, HEY, PICK UP THE THE PHONE AND CALL?>>YES, DON’T IGNORE IT BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT TO GET TO THE AGGRESSIVE POINT AND THE ARTHRITIS WILL ADVANCE IF YOU DON’T START CORRECTING THINS, AND, OF COURSE, YOUR ANNUAL VISIT TO THE VETERINARIAN GOES THROUGH THE WHOLE, OR THE ORTHOPEDIC EXAM WITH THE PET, LISTEN TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY IF THEY FEEL SOMETHING. THE ANIMAL WILL NOT ALWAYS SHOW YOU.>>AND THEN, AS PETS START TO AGE DO WE WANT TO BRING THEM IN MORE FREQUENTLY BECAUSE YOU SAID ANNUAL VISIT, WE WANT TO CHANGE IT UP?>>ABSOLUTELY. GERIATRIC SCANS ARE SCARY, THEY ARE 8, HARD TIME MA GIN, BUT YES,BY ANNUAL EXAMS ARE BETTER AT THAT POINT.>>DR. SAMES THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE INFORMATION.
