    All About Integrative Veterinary Medicine with Dr Henry Pasternak

    All About Integrative Veterinary Medicine with Dr Henry Pasternak

    Tripawd Talk Radio Episode #120:

    In this episode, we're talking all about integrative veterinary medicine. What is it? What treatments are used, and what conditions do they address? And, how can these alternatives to Western medicine help our three legged friends. Especially when it comes to a cancer diagnosis.

    Dr Henry Pasternak answers all these questions, and more. Practicing integrative medicine for more than 34 years, Dr Paternak wrote the book on the subject in, "Healing Pets With Nature's Miracle Cures" which discusses in great detail how holistic and conventional medicine can work together effectively. 

    We talk about how acupuncture helps dogs with arthritis, and the importance of nutrition and herbs to both heal and help prevent disease. With many Tripawds diagnosed with some form of cancer, we spend a lot of time discussing immunity. We discuss other holistic approaches including fecal transplants and ozone treatment, and more.

    Whiskey and the MIMIC Study for Minimally Invasive Metastasectomy in Canines

    Whiskey and the MIMIC Study for Minimally Invasive Metastasectomy in Canines

    Tripawd Talk Radio Episode #118:  What is the MIMIC study for Minimally Invasive Metastasectomy in Canines, and what does Whiskey have to do with it?

    Today we're going to talk about Whiskey and lung mets. We have two guests to help us learn all about a clinical trial studying advancements in treatment for metastatic cancer in dogs.

    Dr. Chris Thomson is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, who specializes in surgical oncology, minimally invasive surgery, and interventional radiology. He is also an active participant in clinical research with Ethos Discovery, with projects focusing on minimally invasive treatments for osteosarcoma and other cancers. And that's why we're excited to to talk with him today.

    Dr Thomson is working on the MIMIC clinical study for Minimally Invasive Metastasectomy in Canines. That's a mouthful, but it means making advances in resection of lung metastases in dogs, with quicker recovery, some surprising results, AND more data toward finding curative treatments for metastatic cancers.

    And that's Where Whiskey comes in. We recently profiled this canine cancer hero in the Tripawds News blog. She received treatment for lung mets from osteosarcoma in the MIMIC trials. So, we also have Whiskey's mom Eleni Merkh joining us to tell us how that went.

    Benefits of Canine Rehab for Tripawds

    Benefits of Canine Rehab for Tripawds

    Tripawd Talk Radio Episode #117:  On this is episode we're excited to discuss one of our favorite topics: Rehab therapy for three legged pets. And we've got an expert with us help explain the benefits.

    Dr Ana Esquivel is a practicing veterinarian who recognized her geriatric patients were in need of special attention beyond the typical drug therapy prescribed for their pain management. She studied Medical Acupuncture and became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist. She now operates ACE of Paws, the only dedicated Canine Rehab Clinic in Albequerque New Mexico. And, three of her patients have been recipients of our Tripawds Rehab grant, which will reimburse anyone who take their three legged dog or cat for rehab evaluation by a certified therapist.

    Why is canine rehab so important, especially during amputation recovery? What treatments are best for Tripawds, and how do you find a good therapist? Dr Ana Esqivel helps us explain on this episode of Tripawd talk Radio. 

    Episode Video: TBD

    Guest Bio: After practicing for over a decade in New Mexico, Dr. Ana Esquivel recognized that most of her patients were geriatric and in need of special attention. Because of this, Dr. Esquivel became more familiar with aging canines' physical needs and how to maintain mobility and a higher quality of life. Studying Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians revealed that most of her patients could benefit from more than the prescribed drug therapy for their pain management. 

    After helping her dog Samantha through a third knee surgery, Dr. E decided it was necessary to broaden her background to include integrative medicine.  By 2018 Dr. E had completed training through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute and added Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist to her credentials.

    Dr. E and her husband John recognized the high demand for Veterinary Physical Rehabilitation in Albuquerque.  The two sprang into action to become business owners. They opened Albuquerque's only stand-alone Canine Rehabilitation Clinic, ACE of Paws.
