Autoimmune diseases in dogs treatment

BeagleCanine autoimmune disease occurs when one or more components of the dog's immune system becomes overactive and the ability of the immune system to distinguish between "self" and "foreign" is lost. That is, the system cannot tell whether some proteins are part of the dog's body tissue or organ, or whether they are from the outside. As a result, "mistakes" occur - the immune system produces antibodies that attack and destroy the body's cells and organs, instead of producing antibodies to defend the body against foreign proteins such as bacteria and viruses. Autoimmune disease may be restricted to a single organ or region or the whole animal. Some examples of autoimmune disease in dogs resulting from an overactive immune system are:

Causes of Canine Autoimmune Diseases

The exact causes of autoimmune disease in dogs are not known, but many holistic veterinarians believe the following are likely culprits:
  • Overuse of vaccines, antibiotics, and steroid drugs
  • Environmental pollutants
  • Food preservatives such as ethoxyquin
  • Chemicals found in pesticides, chemical flea and tick treatments, etc.

Symptoms of Autoimmune Disease in Dogs

Autoimmune disease has multiple symptoms depending on the organs and/or body systems that are being targeted. Diagnosis is difficult since most of the symptoms tend to mimic other conditions. If you suspect that your dog is suffering from some type of immune-mediated disease, be sure to see a vet for a proper examination. Some of the symptoms in dogs, reported prior to diagnosis, include:
  • Diarrhea with or without blood
  • Lethargy and depression
  • Weakness and intolerance to exercise
  • Skin lesions and ulceration
  • Nasal, oral, and anal lesions
  • Stiff joints and lameness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Body odor
  • Weight gain (if thyroid is affected)
