One of the most confusing and contentious unsolved mysteries in otolaryngology, sudden deafness is a rapid loss of hearing. Most patients have reported onset of hearing loss within minutes to several hours and about one-third of patients will wake with the loss; others may find out the problem on trying to use the telephone, or describing a brief period of fluctuating hearing before the loss. Auditory nerve damage due to certain drugs such as Gentamycin, streptomycin, chloroquin, etc. Identical experiences like loud noise can cause hearing loss in one person and leave another relatively unaffected. A sulfur-containing fatty acid, an alpha-lipoic acid helps to generate the energy that keeps us alive and working. The study has shown that the groups given the magnesium supplement were not as likely to experience permanent hearing damage as those given a placebo. Vitamin D deficiency has also been associated with otosclerosis (abnormal bone growth in the middle ear), presbycusis, unexplained and bilateral cochlear deafness, and sensorineural hearing loss.
Always wear ear protection (disposable plugs or ear­phone-style headset) when using loud appliances for example power tools or lawn mowers; and when you know you will be exposed to sudden loud noises, such as when shooting a gun. To understand ourselves it is important to understand our ancestors, and a part of them, and their heritage, lives on in us today.
To the world the American Indians seemed like a forgotten people when the English colonists first arrived and began to occupy their lands.
I want to give special thanks to my cousin, Mary Hilliard, for her assistance and encouragement in researching and preparing this book. Wherever possible I have tried to find at least two sources for the genealogical data, but this has not always been possible. I have also found Franklin Elewatum Bearce's history, Who Our Forefathers Really Were, A True Narrative of Our White and Indian Ancestors, to be very helpful.
It is certainly possible that such a record may contain errors, but it is also very fortunate that we have access to this record as it presents firsthand knowledge of some of the individuals discussed in this book.

Sometime before the colonial period, the Iroquoian tribes began moving from the southern plains eastward across the Mississippi River and then northeasterly between the Appalachians and the Ohio River Valley, into the Great Lakes region, then through New York and down the St. Though they were neighbors and had similar skin color, these two groups of Indians were as dissimilar as the French and the Germans in Europe.
Federations, as well as the individual tribes, were fluid organizations to the extent that the sachem was supported as long as he had the strength to maintain his position.
Belonging to a federation meant that an annual tribute had to be sent to support the great sachem and his household, warriors had to be sent if he called for a given number to go to war, and strictest obedience and fidelity was demanded. Some of these federations had as many as thirty member tribes supporting their Great Sachem, although many of these tribes would be counted by more than one sachem, as any tribe that was forced to pay tribute was considered as part of that Great Sachem's federation.
Any member of the society who dishonored himself, in anyway, was no longer worthy of the respect of his people. When viewing the typical Indians of America, one would describe them as having a dark brown skin. They wore relatively little clothing, especially in summer, although the women were usually somewhat more modest than the men. The English resented the fact that the Indians wouldn't convert to Christianity as soon as the missionaries came among them. The various tribes of New England spoke basically the same language and could understand each other well.
There are many words used commonly in our language today that were learned from these New England Indians: Squaw, wigwam, wampum, pow-wow, moccasin, papoose, etc. Today there is little doubt that prior to Columbus's voyage, the Norsemen sailed to the coast of North America early in the eleventh century. We do not have a record of all of the European contact and influence on the Indians in the early years of exploration because the greatest exposure came from the early European fishermen and trappers who kept no records of their adventures, as opposed to the explorers. In 1524, Giovanni da Verrazano wrote the first known description of a continuous voyage up the eastern coast of North America. As the fur trade became increasingly more important to Europeans, they relied heavily on the Indians to do the trapping for them. Another problem with which the Indians had to contend was the White man's diseases for which they had no tolerance nor immunity. In the spring of 1606, Gorges sent Assacumet and Manida, as guides on a ship with Captain Henry Chalons, to New England to search for a site for a settlement. In 1614, Captain John Smith, who had already been involved in the colony at James Town, Virginia, was again commissioned to take two ships to New England in search of gold, whales or anything else of value. Dermer wanted to trade with the local Indians of the Wampanoag Federation and asked Squanto if he would guide them and be their interpreter. Derner was given safe passage through Wampanoag land by Massasoit and soon returned to his ship.
When the Pilgrims left England in the Mayflower, their stated intent was to establish a settlement on the mouth of the Hudson River, at the site of present day New York City. The Pilgrims returned to the Mayflower and, after many days of exploration, found a more suitable location. On March 16, 1621 the Pilgrims were surprised by a tall Indian who walked boldly into the plantation crying out, "Welcome! The Pilgrims gestured for Massasoit to join them in their fort but, he in turn, gestured for them to come to him. When the amenities were ended, the English brought out a treaty they had prepared in advance, which specified that the Wampanoags would be allies to the English in the event of war with any other peoples and that they would not harm one-another; and that when any Indians came to visit the plantation they would leave their weapons behind. After the ceremonies were ended, Governor Carver escorted Massasoit to the edge of the settlement and waited there for the safe return of Winslow.
Part of Massasoit's willingness to make an alliance with the English must be credited to his weakened condition after suffering from the recent epidemics which left his followers at about half of the strength of his enemies, the Narragansetts. In June of 1621, about three months after the signing of the treaty, a young boy from the Colony was lost in the woods. When the English could not find the boy, Governor William Bradford, (who replaced John Carver, who died in April) sent to Massasoit for help in locating the boy.
That summer Governor Bradford sent Edward Winslow and Stephen Hopkins, with Squanto, to Pokanoket (Massasoit's own tribe, on the peninsula where Bristol, R.I. From this trip of Winslow's, we learn more about the daily life of the Indians in this area. Massasoit urged his guests to stay longer but they insisted they must return to Plymouth before the Sabbath. Less than a month following this visit, Massasoit sent Hobomock, a high ranking member of the Wampanoag Council, to Plymouth to act as his ambassador and to aid the Pilgrims in whatever way they needed. Hobomock and Squanto were surprised at what they heard, and quietly withdrew from the camp to Squanto's wigwam but were captured there before they could get to Plymouth. Although the Narragansetts and Wampanoags were historical enemies and continually feuding over land, they did not usually put hostages of high rank to death. Normally, treason was punishable by death and Massasoit would certainly have been justified in executing Corbitant for his part in the plot against him but, for some reason, Massasoit complete forgave him. Their first harvest was not a large one but the Pilgrims were.happy to have anything at all. During the winter, a rivalry developed between Squanto and Hobomock, the two Indians who now lived continually at Plymouth. According to the treaty he had signed with Plymouth, they were to turn over to him any Indians guilty of offense. In June and July, three ships arrived at Plymouth with occupants who expected to be taken in and cared for. In the winter of 1622-23, Governor William Bradford made trips to the various Indian tribes around Cape Cod to buy food to keep the Pilgrims from starvation.
Next, Standish went to Cummaquid (Barnstable, MA.) where Iyanough was Sachem of the Mattachee Tribe.
Thinking that Massasoit was dead, they went instead to Pocasset, where they sought Corbitant who, they were sure, would succeed Massasoit as the next Great Sachem. Winslow describes their arrival, where the Indians had gathered so closely that it took some effort to get through the crowd to the Great Sachem. Since the Pow-wow's medicine had not produced any results, Winslow asked permission to try to help the ailing Sachem.
Their second Thanksgiving was combined with the wedding celebration of Governor Bradford and Alice Southworth. Because of Massasoit's honored position, more was recorded of him than of other Indians of his time. Massasoit most likely became Sachem of the Pokanokets, and Great Sachem of the Wampanoags, between 1605-1615. The second son of Massasoit was Pometacomet, (alias Pometacom, Metacom, Metacomet, Metacomo or Philip.) Philip was born in 1640, at least 16 years younger than Alexander. The third son, Sunconewhew, was sent by his Father to learn the white man's ways and to attend school at Harvard.
When his two oldest sons were old enough to marry, Massasoit made the arrangements for them to marry the two daughters of the highly regarded Corbitant, Sachem of the Pocasset tribe. The tribes of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, as well as some of the Nipmuck tribes of central Massachusetts, looked to him for Military defense and leadership. Following the plagues of 1617, which reduced his nation so drastically and left his greatest enemy, the Narragansetts of Rhode Island, so unaffected, Massasoit was in a weakened position. In 1632, following a battle with the Narragansetts in which he regained the Island of Aquidneck, Massasoit changed his name to Ousamequin (Yellow feather) sometimes spelled Wassamegon, Oosamequen, Ussamequen. In 1637, the English waged an unprovoked war of extermination against the Pequot Federation of Connecticut, which shocked both the Wampanoags and the Narragansetts so much that both Nations wanted to avoid hostilities with the feared English. After hearing of the death of his good friend, Edward Winslow in 1655, Massasoit realized that his generation was passing away. As Massasoit's health began to decline, he turned more and more of the responsibilities over to Alexander who was a very capable leader and who was already leading the warriors on expedition against some of their enemies.
Massasoit was succeeded, as Great Sachem, by his son Alexander, assisted by his brother, Philip. The younger generation saw, in Alexander, a strong, new leader who could see the danger of catering to the English.
Both Philip and Weetamoo were very vocal in their condemnation of the English and word of their accusations soon reached Plymouth. Together, Philip and Canonchet reasoned that it would take a great deal of preparation for such a war. If your pet is unfortunate enough to have an encounter with a snake you can help by being aware of the signs and symptoms of snake bite, and getting the affected animal to the hospital as quickly as possible. The first clue that a pet has been bitten may just be a small amount of blood on the coat, face or limb with a some soft tissue swelling around a small puncture wound(s). Most snake bites in humans occur when people try to kill snakes, often after seeing them bite a pet. Calling ahead gives us critical extra time to make necessary preparations to ensure prompt and effective treatment. When you call, listen very carefully to the announcements, and then call the emergency mobile number on the message (Mark sometimes has a night off with the after hours phone going to another vet). If your pet has stopped breathing, attempt mouth to nose resuscitation and if possible continue this during transport of your pet to the hospital. These days the treatment of snake bite has a good success rate, and with appropriate and timely medical therapy many patients recover completely.
The unfortunate animal will require constant monitoring, day and night, every one or two hours for the first 24 hours then every three hours for the next two days, with high rate intravenous infusions, blood clotting products and regular blood tests. If a snake needs removal from the property, contact WIRES to ask for theie recommended local snake handler. Hyperthyroidism in Cats: Great News!This is a very interesting disease of cats which we see in nearly any age group.
Hyper-active thyroids (hyperthyroidism) make cats act like a car all revved up- ravenous appetite, hyper-active (just like my kids), under weight, often difficult to handle (again like my kids!) and may suffer from heart failure- rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, panting. By performing a simple blood test, we can diagnose affected cats and institute therapy to knock-out the thyroid hormones causing all the problems.
Left un-treated, hyperthyroid cats run the major risk of high blood pressure and heart failure.
The ventricles become smaller and smaller and as a result, can’t fill up with the same volume of blood. Treated cases usually see an improvement in heart function and the removal of heart drugs from the treatment regime at this stage i.e. Blood test are performed before and 24-36 hours after starting therapy to ensure the kidneys can handle having the blood pressure dropped. Kidney DiseaseDogs and cats can suffer from either acute or chronic renal failure caused by many different types of illnesses. Kidneys have powerful protective mechanisms in place which kick into action if problems arise.


Kidneys are also responsible for sending messages to the bone marrow telling it to make more red blood cells (RBC's) to replace the old ones which are "gobbled up" by the spleen and liver when they are worn out. As with most diseases, early detection and treatment is much more preferable especially for a vitally important organ like the kidneys. For all our renal failure cases, we use a Doppler machine to record elevations in blood pressure and measure response to blood pressure lowering medications.
Force feeding using a stomach tube through which fluids and liquidised renal support diets can be administered. For cases with elevated Phosphorous in their body, we can use drugs called phosphate binders. For young cats in Australia with kidney failure, there is the possibility of kidney transplantation in Brisbane, but it is quite involved and the donor cat has to be taken on as a new family pet. Parvovirus- the Ebola equivalentWe all know about Ebola- one of the nastiest and most contagious viral diseases for man. Parvovirus has to be one of the nastiest and most infectious diseases of dogs causing severe suffering with a very high fatality rate despite all the best intensive care. Surprisingly, because Parvovirus has been around for so long, some pet owners have either forgotten what it does to dogs, or they were not yet born when it first arrived on the scene in a world wide epidmiec in the 1980's. Parvovirus is a virus that attacks the lining of a dog’s stomach and intestines and literally strips it out.
If pet owners are struggling financially, vets often have to euthanise infected dogs before starting any therapy. Camden vets had 10 Parvovirus cases in just one day, not to mention how many cases they had for a whole year!
In a recent national study, there were 1,200 cases reported - and that was from only a small number of vet practices taking part in the survey.
When Parvovirus first occurred in the 1980’s, people were not aware of just how tough and contagious it was. Well, the very fact that Parvovirus managed to spread across the world in just 2 years puts a few holes in this statement.
A dog either brewing or in the recovery stage of a Parvovirus infection, sheds millions of the viruses into the environment. It does not take long for an epidemic of Parvovirus to occur if the general dog population has a low vaccination percentage. Parvovirus can affect dogs of all ages; however dogs less than one year of age are particularly susceptible. Treatment is difficult because there is no way to kill the virus once it has infected the dog. Treatment is intensive and involves hospitalisation in an isolation ward (sometimes for many days), aggressive fluid therapy, antibiotics, pain relief and anti-vomiting drugs.
Despite all of these treatments, a high percentage of dogs die a few days later leaving the owner with no dog and a very large vet bill. Malignant tumour of the adrenal glands- tumours made up of the cortisone producing cells of the adrenal glands make excessive cortisone.
Dogs with pituitary gland tumours can go on to live comfortably for some time until the tumour gets too big and starts to place pressure on adjacent parts of the brain.At this stage, we might see symptoms such as blindness and other hormone imbalances.
Unfortunately, adrenal gland tumours are often malignant and can spread to other parts of the body.
Suspected cases have blood tests done to try and find out where the excess cortisone is coming from. Until recently, most cases were treated with a drug called Lysodren which destroys the parts of the adrenal glands that make cortisone. Many cases on Trilostane can have the dose lowered after a few months, which helps with the budget.
Diabetes is commonly seen in Cushing's cases, probably as a result of cortisone interfering with the action of insulin.
Before embarking on treatment, owners need to be very aware of the expensive nature of treament. In human medicine, pituitary gland tumous can be removed by specialist surgeons operating through the nose or roof of the mouth. Increased Thirst (Polydypsia)There are a large number of causes of increased thirst (polydypsia) in pets. Blood tests (biochemistry and full blood count) give an overall picture of a pet's health. Pets and humans can donate a kidney (and therefore be down to 50% total kidney function) and still lead a healthy life with no elevation of kidney blood tests or polydypsia.
If their remaining kidney becomes diseased, and loses over half of its ability to function, kidney blood test start to rise i.e. When there is 25-50% of healthy kidney function, kidney blood tests are often normal, but the urine may be dilute (low specific gravity). Between 50-100%, the urine will still be concentrated (high specific gravity), and bloods normal.
It is important to check a urine sample as it can detect kidney failure long before a blood test. These chemicals travel down a special tube from the pancreas into the first part of the small intestines (the Duodenum).
Sometimes as pets get older and fatter, the pancreas gets inflamed or worn out from too much of a workload e.g. Traveling through the pancreas is the bile duct- a tube connecting the gall bladder in the liver to the duodenum. We normally see pancreatitis in older overweight dogs or dogs being fed too many fatty meals e.g. From the history, breed, sex, age, symptoms and clinical examination, a vet usually has a pretty good idea the pet is suffering from pancreatitis. A special in-house blood test ( Idexx SNAP CPL) gives an accurate positive result in pancreatitis cases (blue dot on the right is the same or darker than the dot on the left- see picture). Other blood tests may show elevated white blood cells combating inflammation and infection and elevated liver enzymes if the bile duct becomes blocked.
As mentioned above, the inflamed pancreas can block the bile duct, so jaundice is a common symptom, sometimes seen 1-2 days after the start of the condition.
Cases failing to respond to therapy may require surgery to rule out pancreatic cancer or to gently flush the affected area to try and settle the inflammation. Repeated episodes of pancreatitis can destroy the ability of the pancreas to produce food digesting acids and alkalis, resulting in chronic diarrhoea.
In humans, there is an overall 20% fatality rate, usually due to a secondary infection developing in the affected areas of the abdomen. Dogs with pancreatitis and diabetic keto-acidosis have a poor prognosis and despite the best of efforts, may die from complications. Treatment can be very costly due to the length of stay in hospital with intensive care, drugs, repeat blood tests and fluid therapy. Boxer CardiomyopathyThis condition is characterised by feinting (syncope) and sudden death in Boxer dogs. The problem is due to a run of extra heartbeats interrupting the normal flow of oxygen rich blood to the brain. These extra heartbeats originate in damaged heart muscle in the right ventricle (ventricular premature contractions -VPC's). A run of several or more VPC's can cause sudden death which is a common consequence of the condition. By listening to the heart for several minutes with a stethoscope, a vet may detect a skip in the normal heart rhythm although this is not a sure fire way of detecting a problem as affected dogs can go for several hours without as much as one skipped VPC. Similarly, connecting a dog to an ECG machine to record the heartbeat for a few minutes may miss a run of VPC's. Listening to the heart or recording an ECG while the dog has a syncopal episode would be ideal way to diagnose the problem, but these events tend to happen away for vet surgeries and owners can be too stressed to  think about recording the heartbeat while their unconscious dog lies at their feet. Specialist cardiologists can loan out 24hr ECG recording machines (Halters) which attach to the trunk of the body in special leather harnesses.
Quite often it is astounding to see how many runs of VPC's occur while the dog is asleep.
Atrial FibrillationSome dogs with dilated cardiomyopathy and left A-V valve disease get a life threatening arrhythmia called atrial fibrillation. Each time the damaged atrium contracts, it tries to sends an electrical signal to the ventricles below telling it to contract as "its their turn now". The refractory period may only be a split part of a second, and follows a normal ventricle contraction.
In effect, the atria are doing their own rapid irregular heart beat and 8 times out of 10 their extra contractions cause the ventricles to contract. As a result, we see the ventricles pumping at a much faster and irregular rate than in a dog with no atrial fibrillation.
If a dog has either A-V valve disease or dilated cardiomyopathy, the ventricles are already having a hard time.
Cardiac output is reduced in A-V valve disease and dilated cardiomyopathy, so oxygen rich blood does not reach vital organs e.g. But don't forget the heart which is the most dynamic oxygen hungry organ (next to the brain). The last thing the diseased ventricles want is atrial fibrillation causing them to contract even faster. Atrial fibrillation can very quickly cause the ventricles to fail and lead to sudden heart failure and death. On exmination, the heart rate is very rapid and irregular- often over 200 beats a minute (nearly 3-4 beats a second). A normal ECG has one P wave (atrial contraction) followed by one QRS wave (ventricle contraction) and a normal heart rate of approx 100-140. Atrial fibrillation shows rapid irregular spaced ventricle heartbeats (QRS waves) and no regular P waves. When I was three years old, in the spring of 1955, The Bone Lady came calling on me one fine day and blew my little boy mind wide open. From the affected individuals, about 10% of have known causes which include infections, circulatory or neurological disorders, trauma, immune disorders or drugs toxic to the ears. The most widely used treatment is high doses of steroids, and some people recover from SSHL, but not others. Lipoic acid has broad range of antioxidant action and thus giving defense against free radicals.
A lower dosage of 20 to 50 mg daily is commonly recommended for use as a general antioxidant.
Magnesium can be taken in a supplement that includes magnesium, calcium and vitamin D for the most benefit, read below.
Deficiency of vitamin D is probably one of the reasons and supplementation should be considered in persons with hearing loss as noted by researchers. Keep the volume low enough that you can easily hear the telephone and other sounds over the music.
This is particularly important if you have repeated ear infections and have been treated with antibiotics.
At first I was very skeptical of this record as it was a family tradition passed down for many generations. She was very fond of her Grandmother, Freelove, knew all about her and stated on several occasions that Freelove's Mother was Sarah Mauwee, daughter of Joseph Mauwee, Sachem of Choosetown, and not Tabitha Rubbards (Roberts). Massasoit was the Sachem of this tribe, as well as being the Great Sachem over the entire Wampanoag Federation, which consisted of over 30 tribes in central and southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Welcome, Englishmen!" It was a cold and windy day, yet this Indian, who introduced himself as Samoset, Sachem of a tribe in Monhegan Island, Maine, wore only moccasins and a fringed loin skin. Dogs, cats and horses are all at risk, although curious dogs are the most frequently affected. Tiger and Brown snakes are also prevalent, especially on Coolangatta Mountain and adjacent flat lands.
But don't waste time trying to find it as we stock a multi-snake anti-venom that covers Black, Tiger and Brown snake bites. If we are at home, have the after hours going to another vet, or are out on a house call, you will be using up what might be precious time - always call first!
But treating snake bite is always arduous for the affected pet, as well as for the vet and the nurses. Consequently, it can be expensive, although it may be covered by pet health insurance if you have it.
With the rapid heart rate, the heart muscles get thicker and thicker- its a bit like a weight lifter doing extra work. Less blood in means less blood out of the heart, and reduced blood supply to the body and its vital organs eg kidneys, liver, heart.
In some cats, the high blood pressure from hyperthyroidism is keeping their poorly functioning kidneys going.


Should your remaining kidney lose up to 50% of its ability to concentrate urine, you can still appear normal although you may be drinking a bit more and making dilute urine. A Senior Pet Health Check urine examination looks at the concentrating ability of the kidneys to detect early reduction in kidney function. In other words, the pet makes more urine than normal because the kidneys can't re-absorb the water out of the urine like they did when healthy. We would rather diagnose renal failure before clinical signs or blood tests indicate its presence.
It is very accurate at detecting early kidney problems long before blood tests start to indicate a problem. It can survive up to 18 months in soil or concrete and needs strong disinfectants to kill it. International travellers and infected or recovering dogs being flown to other countries would infect healthy dogs upon their arrival- either by direct contact with another dog or with their clothing, bedding and foot wear. It is vital all puppies and adult dogs are vaccinated against parvovirus and your vet will advise on the appropriate vaccination schedule.
Referral to a specialist may be an option if the tumour is in just one adrenal galnd and not adhered to any vital structures e.g. They must be fully committed and prepared to put up with regular blood tests and expensive drug bills. Besides the expected increase in thirst with hot days, exercise or change to a drier food,  any pet showing polydypsia over 2-3 days should be examined by a vet.
The pancreas is a special organ that makes many different chemicals such as insulin, acids and alkalis which help digest and process foods. Repeating these tests during the dog's stay in hospital gives the vet an good idea on how the dog is going. Diabetes and all of its associated complications (keto-acidosis) can be a life threatening presenting sign. It is unlike the traditional form of cardiomyopathy we see in large dog breeds (most of the time).
By the time they do have a feel of the heartbeat or pulse, the rhythm may be back to normal as it may have just been a run of several VPC's taking up less than 1-2 seconds of time.
A computer runs through the 24hrs of recording in seconds and prints out a report highlighting all the abnormal heartbeats. The damaged area fires off its own electrical current causing the atrium to contract very rapidly (sometimes as much as 200-300 times a minute).
Not every electrical impulse gets through to the ventricle as a number of these extra charges arrive at the ventricle when it is in a "none-responsive" state (refractory period). Once it has passed, the extra electrical signals from the damaged atrium above can trigger off a ventricle contraction.
Any reduction in output means less oxygen for the heart muscles, so they can't pump as well as they would like. There is often evidence of left sided heart failure - coughing, weakness, pale gums, weak thready rapid pulse. She downloaded so much data into my nodal connections that I could scarcely grok it all – then or now. The root cause of sudden deafness lies in the vestibulocochlear nerve (Cranial nerve VIII), the inner ear, or central processing centers of the brain. Most people recover impulsively within a few weeks, but 15% experience progressively worsening symptoms. If the hearing loss is not severe, some doctors to not recommend any treatment but individuals who suffer from SSHL can be very fearful of the prospect of being permanently deaf in one ear, and this can set up a long treatment options that can be intimidating to the patient and the doctor.
They generally work to decrease inflammation, decrease swelling, and help the body to fight illness. The researchers suggest that diabetes may lead to hearing loss by damaging the nerves and blood vessels of the inner ear. Also, it has potential benefits for diabetic neuropathy, and it is proposed that it may help to prevent or repair nerve damage that causes hearing loss. You should be the only one able to hear your music if you are using a personal stereo unit with headphones. She obtained her copy of Zerviah Newcomb's Chronical from Zerviah's original diary, in the hands of Josiah 3rd himself. But it’s always better to keep your pets out of likely snake habitat and avoid the risk.
This thickening happens at the expense of the chamber (ventricle) sizes, and is called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). Dialysis is performed in people with renal failure to filter out the waste products that the kidney normally places in the urine.
When we run blood tests on renal failure cases, we see elevated levels of urea (Blood Urea Nitrogen- BUN), Creatinine and Phosphate.
More urine going out of the body automatically triggers a chemical release in the brain which makes the pet thirsty. If the kidneys are not working properly, chemicals are released which elevate the blood pressure in an attempt to improve the flow of blood through the kidney and remove waste products that are building up in the body. Because RBC's are responsible for carrying oxygen around the whole body, the pet is quite weak and easily fatigued.
Treatment involves intensive care, fluid therapy, pain relief, blood transfusions and no guarantee of success. In a very old patient, no treatment may be a more preferable propositon especially if the owners are on a budget. When making the appointment, try to bring along a fresh urine sample as a lot of information can be found by examining it. In other words, we don't normally see elevated kidney tests in chronic renal failure until there is only 25% of healthy tissue left.
The kidneys aren't doing their job of "recycling water" by sucking water out of the urine before it goes to the bladder to be voided. This small amount of inflammation results in leakage of acids and alkalis both inside and adjacent to the pancreas. Some older dogs can develop pancreatic cancer which looks just the same as normal pancreatitis.
Dogs must go onto an IV drip to correct dehydration and reverse shock and damage to the kidneys. This is important to provide fluid and nutrition to the cells lining the stomach and intestines. It is vital that repeat episodes are avoided as too much damage to the pancreas can result in lack of insulin (diabetes) or the inability to digest and absorb foods (pancreatic exocrine insufficiency). Boxer cardiomyopathy is also known as "Boxer arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy".
But especially then, at the age of three.One of the major take-away messages that she impressed on me was that this dark time of turmoil and trouble into which we have now begun entering was on the way. SSHL is defined as an idiopathic hearing loss of sensorineural origin, greater than 30 dB in three connected frequencies that usually occurs in less than three days and in only one ear. Standard management of sudden deafness consists of removal of the known cause, antibiotics, steroids and inhalation of a mixture of carbon-dioxide and oxygen. Steroid treatment helps to some SSHL patients who also have conditions that affect the immune system, the body’s defense against disease.
In the body, just one deficiency can have trickle down affect and makes it very hard to isolate the exact cause of sudden hearing loss, and many other disease process. If they are inactive (hypo-thyroidism), pets are lazy, over weight, have skin problems and greasy coats.
In fact, many dogs only survive 2-3 days with this intensive care before dying, leaving pet owners with huge vet bills and no dog.
It did not take long before surrounding parks and streets were covered in millions of viruses. This means a dog may appear healthy, but can be excreting virus particles in its faeces and so become a source of infection to other dogs while the disease is brewing in its intestines.
As a result, bile "backs up" in the liver and can cause a yellow staining of the blood, skin and gums (jaundice). Dehydration and shock quickly follow, making the dog thirsty, however each time it drinks, more leakage of the acids and alkalis occurs. If they are very rapid, the ventricle does not have time to fill up to the top befoire it is "told" to contract.
Over the years I sort of half-thought that maybe it would never arrive, that somehow humanity could avoid the inevitable rendezvous with karmic destiny and grand tour cosmic cycling that bids fair to soon make mincemeat out of so many, in so many ways, in such a comparatively short period of time. By taking less processed sugar in diet, you can low your blood sugar and thus reverse some of the debilitating effects.
Bearce's Great-aunt, Mary Caroline, lived with Josiah III and Freelove Canfield Bearce for several years, listened to their ancestral stories, and made her own personal copy of Zerviah's diary supplement. Lawrence to what is now known as Lake Champlain where his party killed several Mohawks in a show of European strength and musketry. The brain realises it is losing more "water" than it should be from the body, so it activates the "thirst centre" in the brain which makes the pet look for water.
Acute secondary kidney failure can occur due to the large amount of fluid loss causing thickening of the blood and decreased blood flow to vital organs. As the years went by I stumbled across the Hopi prophecies that resonate closely with The Bone Lady’s dream stream currency.
As it is a medical emergency, a person who experiences SSHL should visit a doctor immediately.
More damage to the pancreas means more leakage and it does not take long for massive inflammation and tissue destruction to occur. I pored over the Cayce prophecies and readings, the Nostradamus material, and a great deal of other literature that also warned of carnage and cataclysm at this historical juncture.
