Treating PD through psychiatry?

Recommended Posts

Otolorin,

I've been thinking about your question all day.  I have seen so many animals with all the symptoms of PD and those are the ones that the standard meds don't work well for. I truly believe we are missing it and not treating it correctly.  You have peaked my interest - I might try Sinemet at a low dose in the next one I see. Thank you!

So i talked to the other three vets in my practice and I think you are on to something Otolorin.  We have all seen many dogs with all the signs of PD and they are the ones that don't respond much to meds probably because we are treating them for pain and anxiety not PD.

And it makes you wonder about applying monthly neonicotinic pesticides application many do for fleas as that has been linked to PD in people.

lenamegan,

I guess,you might start a mini study with the other vets in your practice and collect data from owners as regards the use of the pesticides and the effect on pets.This would be an interesting study.You might find a correlation between the use of the pesticides and the number of pets that present with PD.I am just as adventurous as you.A cure for PD must be found in our life time somehow!
