Canine kidney disease causes many associated issues for dogs, but few are more worrying or frustrating for their owners than the refusal to eat. This article looks at why dogs with the disease stop eating and offers suggestions to help rectify the problem.
I am still baffled that no one appears willing (in North America) to conduct a a broad range PCR screen for infection by Rickettsiales (Wolbachia genes detected in blood) before determining that a patient has uveal melanoma or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. We have documented proof of a patient who recovered from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (in 2015) once his Wolbachia infection was treated. And in this case, there was no trace of the nematode worm that emits it. Instead, we are told, "Since the causes are not understood, there is no known way of preventing this disease." Now that the EPA is allowing MosquitoMate to release Wolbachia-infected Aedes males into the environment in 20 U.S. states, we had better take notice of the uptick in rare cancers (like uveal melanoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma) and demand that humans be tested for Wolbachia infections. Because there are treatment options: azithromycin, doxycycline, minocycline, or rifampicin. Some of these, I believe, can even be taken in combination.

I am increasingly becoming unnerved and alarmed by the striking correlations between Wolbachia-infected Aedes releases and life-threatening symptoms in young people. Even though the media isn't covering it, Culex spp. are Zika vectors. And in two of those Culex types - when they naturally acquired Wolbachia - became better vectors of West Nile virus and malaria. I highly suspect the same holds true for Zika. What every oncologist needs to know: Wolbachia can infect humans without any trace of the nematode that emits it. So, before removing eye balls or beginning any drastic form of treatment for lymphoma, you need to rule out (via a broad range PCR screen for infection by Rickettsiales), Wolbachia genes in the blood and tissues of these patients. We have strong antibiotics that can treat this infection.

Dogs suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease often develop a multitude of secondary conditions that both owners and vets have to deal with.
