Estimado Dr.: Ayer 7 de Enero 1916 al fin me atrevi

Customer Question
Estimado Dr. Peter: Ayer 7...
Estimado Dr. Peter: Ayer 7 de Enero 1916 al fin me atrevi incursionar en la tecnologia y me comunique con ustedes a fin de explicarle de ser posible a usted, la situacion de salud por la que atraviesa mi perro Boomer (Labrador enrazado) el cual ya usted hace algun tiempo lo sano de un problema de piel que presentaba. En estos momentos nuevamente presenta un problema parecido pero sin la presencia de los gusanos planos al parecer erradicados por usted. Sin embargo presentaba la presencia de pulgas que actualmente ha desminuido o casi desaparecido con las vacunas y sus banos donde sigo usando el shampoo que usted le indico y que hasta ahora ha sido efectivo. El problema es que al igual que la vez anterior se rasca mucho y se rompe la piel provocandole una perdida bastante grande de pelo. Verdaderamente luce terrible. Su otro problema es que supongo que por la edad, le cuesta mucho pararse y aunque a adelgazado algo por rebajarle la cantidad de comida y suministrarle 2 tabletas diarias de Glucosamine 500mg no ha mejorada nada. Como dije al comienzo de esta, ayer logre ingresar a Just Answer y y finalice de llenar los formularios, tuve que abortar el intento ya que me indican que e-mail que indico pertenece a una cuenta ya existente y me parece logico ya que fue el mismo que use cuendo tuve la suerte que usted me atendiera. No creo que deba crear otro que de paso no se como hacerlo y ademas no encontre como hacerselo en mi comunicacion de ayer. Gracias anticipadas por su atencion, Alfredo Pareja

Buenos dias Alfredo, que placer verlo de nuevo. Me apena aprender que Boomer esta teniendo problemas. Pero, tratare lo mejor de ayudarle via este medio. Ayer vi otra pregunta hecha por usted y le respondi. En fin, podemos seguir comunicado aqui. Tengo unas preguntas para usted, como siempre me gusta tener la historia clinica clara para poder darle mi mejor consejo:

1- Boomer todavia tiene pulgas?

2- Que edad tiene Boomer?

3- Cuanto pesa?

4- Que medicamento esta utilizando en contra de las pulgas?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No tiene pulgas pero tengo que sacarlo a diario 2 veces por dia y me temo que el condominio donde vivo guarida no deja de haber
12 anos.
Aproximadamente 75 libtras
VetGuardplus+ (vacunas) y PetArmor (para tratar de disminuir la presencia de las pulgas y logicamente deje de rascarse)

Alfredo, excusame pero no puedo hacer llamada telefonica. El estado en que tengo mi licencia no me permite hacer llamada al menos que ya haya examinado el paciente. Las ofertas son del website no mias, excusame. Pero, te puedo contestar via este medio como antes.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

1- El se esta lamiendo las lesiones?

2- Me puedes describir la aparencia de las lesiones?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
1-Si. Se lame las lesiones 2- La piel esta como muy rosada y con las costras producto de las heridas que se hace cuando se rascal. Aunque de vez en cuando le aparece algo algo parecido a las costras que no se que son. Mil gracias por su atencion . De usted atentamente, Alfredo
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Alfredo, las lesiones que describes en la piel de Boomer pueden ser a consecuencia de una reaccion alergica tanto a la saliva de pulgas, a la comida o algo en el ambiente. Muchas veces los duenos no encuentran pulgas, solo se necesita una pulga que muerda al perro e imediatamente causa esta reaccion. Yo le voy hacer unas recomendacionces, si no ves mejoria en 7 a 10 dias el proximo paso es un exam fisico con su veterinario de familia. Esto es lo que puede intentar:

1- Cambiele la comida a una comida que no tengas granos como: maiz, gluten, soya, trigo, etc. con una proteina que Boomer no haya comido antes. Por ejemplo, si el no ha comido oveja (lamb) pongalo en una comida "grain free" con oveja. La idea es presenterla una proteina differente ya que los perros tienden a desarrollar alergias a las proteinas que frecuentemente comen. Es importante no darle comida humana.

2- Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg 3 tableta cada 12 horas. Puede comprar benadryl en cualquier farmacia humana.

3- Un suplemento de omega 3, esto lo puede comprar en cualquier tienda de animales.

Para las lesiones en la piel esto es lo que puede usar:

1- Es importante pararlo de lamer o no va a dejar que las lesiones se sanen. Comprale un "ecollar (cono)" en la tienda de animales para que no se pueda lamer.

2- Lavar las lesiones con un jabon antimicrobial como Hibiclens 2 veces al dia. Esto lo puedes comprar en cualquier farmacia para humanos.

3- Despues de lavar las lesiones aplicar un antibiotico topico como neosporin or bacitracin. Hacer esto 2 veces al dia durante las proximas 7-10 dias.

4- Si no notas mejoria en este periodo el proximo paso es un exam fisico con tu veterinario de familia, a lo mejor necesite medicamentos orales.

Alfredo, un verdadero placer hablar con usted. Porfavor digame si tienes otra pregunta. Un cordial saludo para Boomer.
