Can Pets Get The Placebo Effect (why your pets treatment might not be working)

09/06/2018 0



If you’ve ever wondered can pets get the placebo effect then in this video I will discuss what the placebo effect is and if it can explain why some treatments might appear to work when in fact they may be doing little for our dogs and cats.

The placebo effect is a beneficial effect produced by a substance which can’t be a result of the substance itself. The effect is in fact a result of the patients belief that the treatment is working. Our dogs and cats can’t know or think this so is the placebo effect in pets a real thing?

The answer is actually a bit more complicated than a simple yes or no. While a pet may not believe in any treatment or understand why something is being given, we will. This means that we can actually experience something known as caregiver placebo or placebo by proxy.… Read More

Perturbed parrot endures visit to the veterinarian

17/05/2018 0



Let’s face it, medical exams are annoying! You are poked, prodded and sometimes stuck with needles! The indignities continue on and on! Yet, these visits are necessary to maintain our pets health. Parrots must also have routine veterinary visits at least once a year. These visits are stressful on both the bird and its owners. The bird has to be restrained in order to be examined. That is not easy to do with a parrot who has a beak that could do serious damage to human flesh when it feels threatened. Usually, the parrot is placed in a towel to be restrained for the entire exam. This is both uncomfortable for the bird and the doctor is hindered by the bulk of the towel. Dr. Osofsky ABVP is a board certified Avian Veterinarian. To gain this certification it requires additional training above and beyond what is required to practice veterinary … Read More
