Adrenal Gland Cancer (Pheochromocytoma) / Disease in Dogs
 
05:14
A pheochromocytoma is a tumor of the adrenal gland, which causes the glands to make too much of certain hormones. This can cause an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate. These symptoms are intermittent (not present all of the time) because the hormones that cause them are not made all of the time or are made in low amounts. Pheochromocytomas are rare in dogs. They usually occur in dogs that are older than seven years but can occur in younger dogs as well. Because this tumor affects an endocrine gland that functions to spread hormones, pheochromocytomas commonly spread to organs that are near them and can rapidly metastasize to other areas of the body.

Endosonographic Evaluation of the Adrenal Glands: Part I
 
06:54
Abstract: The left adrenal gland is best visualized using endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) from a position in the upper body of the stomach, whereas the right adrenal gland may easily be examined using transabdominal ultrasound. The adrenal glands have a 'seagull' configuration, with a body and two long wings. Sonographically, five layers of the adrenals may be distinguished. Mass lesions are incidentally found in up to 5% of patients, only 15--20% of these 'incidentalomas' being clinically relevant. However, the adrenal glands are the fourth most frequent site of metastases in malignant disease. EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy of the left adrenal gland has a high yield and very low risk. This article is part of an expert video encyclopedia.

Endosonographic Evaluation of the Adrenal Glands: Part II (Pathological Findings)
 
07:02
Abstract: It is currently possible to visualize structural alterations with a size of only 2--3 mm with endoscopic ultrasound. For clinical work it is important to differentiate between adenoma and metastatic adrenal tumors, especially in those patients with cancer or a history of treated cancer. Solitary adrenal metastasis is often difficult to distinguish from benign adrenal adenoma. In this clinical situation, EUS-guided FNA of the adrenal glands is a minimally invasive and safe approach that documents or excludes malignant involvement.

The patient was a 9 year old, medium cross breed dog. An abdominal ultrasound in December 2010 revealed a left adrenal mass of approximately 3.49 x 2.23cm. Fine needle aspirates diagnosed Adrenal Hyperplasia. A second scan on the day of the surgery in January 2011 revealed that the mass had grown to approximately 4.3 x 3.2cm. A laparoscopic adrenalectomy was performed by Jan Doedens MRCVS at Medivet Richmond, assisted by Alison Canning RVN. Three trocars were placed, and the procedure took an hour. Histopathology revealed Adrenal cortical adenocarcinoma.

Westbridge canine cushing disease adrenal gland ultrasound interpretation
 
17:27
This video presentation deals with a new way of interpreting the ultrasound findings of a canine patient with pituitary dependent Cushing's disease of the adrenal glands. It is not based on the overall measurement of the size of the gland but instead it looks at the relative changes seen in the distinct layering of the cells that produce the excessive amounts of the hormone named cortisol. This is a non peer reviewed observation that is open for discussion. It is hoped that with the release of this information that others will investigate the possibility that this might be a better way to evaluate the presence of a hyperactive state in an adrenal gland. It is mainly through the use of high resolution linear transducer for the direct imaging of the glands that this concept has evolved.

Todays question is: My dog has been diagnosed with Cancer, is there anything you can do to help? We're too familiar with the word, and it's no less tragic in dogs as it is in human beings. Cancer is believed to be caused by an immune system that has been compromised in some way, and it generally reveals itself at an advanced age. And with nine out of ten dog health problems directly related to diet, it's already established that the inevitable result of a commercial diet is, in fact, a compromised immune system. But in this case is doesn't take years to manifest. The changes in DNA resulting from an over-stressed immune system can begin earlier in life. Cancer is a preventable condition. Research clearly shows proper nutrition helps support and maintain a dog's body naturally. While I cannot say conclusively in all cases a diet change will heal a dog with cancer, I have witnessed the remission of cancer in dogs when following a natural raw food diet. One caveat here: if your dog already has cancer, start him on a natural diet using organic ingredients as soon as possible. This will help to reduce the burden resulting from food additives, and with good fortune, facilitate the remission of the cancer. Remember, natural whole raw food is also healing medicine for carnivores -- it is in fact, the only medicine available to an animal in the wild -- and a far superior remedy to drugs and chemotherapy. In my opinion it's your best chance at healing cancer, and can be highly effective when used alongside a regimen of care from a holistic veterinarian service.

Cushing’s disease update: Targeting the pituitary glands
 
03:30
About 90,000 to 100,000 new cases of Cushing’s are diagnosed in geriatric dogs every year. Veterinary endocrinologist Dr. Dave Bruyette says that still not much is known about why this disease develops in dogs, but new treatments that focus directly on the pituitary glands—the primary cause of the disease—instead of the adrenal glands are being investigated.

Crush Cushing’s Disease the Vetoryl Way
 
03:02
trolyte balance, immune function, fat metabolism and even the cardiovascular system. This hormonal imbalance is known as hyperadrenocorticism or Cushing’s Disease. The most common cause of Cushing’s syndrome is a tumor in the pituitary gland (located at the base of the brain). At times, it may also be due to a tumor in the adrenal glands. In either case, the condition causes the adrenal glands to secrete excessive cortisol in the body. Occasionally, it can also be triggered by illness or injury. Difficult to diagnose The problem with Cushing’s disease is that it does not manifest with common indications such as pain, cough, vomiting, diarrhea, bleeding and so on. The symptoms such as increased thirst, increased appetite, excessive urination, excessive panting, gastrointestinal disorders, lethargy, obesity, insomnia, hair loss and muscle weakness are mistakenly connected to normal signs of aging in the pet animal. It can even make the pet irritable or restless. This is the reason why pet owners can be forgiven for failing to seek veterinary intervention at the onset of the disease itself. However, if left untreated, Cushing’s syndrome can lead to diabetes, pancreatitis, seizures or congestive heart failure in the dog. Therefore, pet owners are advised to watch out for the warning signs of a bulging belly, sagging body, symmetric balding, skin darkening, hard white scaly patches on the skin, easy bruising or hypertension. Route to diagnosis Pet owners should consult a veterinarian at the earliest to rule out any underlying cause even for the general signs of aging. The physician will discuss the symptoms and conduct a thorough physical examination. He will run blood and urine tests to measure the level of cortisol in the dog’s body. If cortisol is elevated, the veterinarian can do an ultrasound scan to locate the tumor and determine if the Cushing’s disease is emanating from the pituitary or adrenal glands. Road ahead Tumors in the adrenal glands can be surgically removed in most cases. While Cushing’s disease from the pituitary gland is incurable, the condition can still be treated with drugs. In either case, the veterinarian will prescribe trilostane (through vetoryl for dogs) to block the excessive production and synthesis of cortisol in the canine. The medication has to be continued lifelong. Therefore, vetoryl for dogs can improve both the quality and length of the pet’s life. He or she will be able to stay active, comfortable and healthy for a much longer time.
