Uterine Fibroids in Dogs and Cats

Uterine Fibroids in Dogs and Cats

Herbal treatments to help address symptoms of uterine fibroids in dogs and cats.

The immune system is a complex army of cells found through out your pet’s body that provides a fortified defense against unwanted invaders. It is an intricate system that keeps your pet healthy and protects them against allergens, viruses, bacteria, microbes, parasites, toxins, foreign fells and cellular mutations (healthy cells which have mutated into irregular cells). The immune system is tasked with protecting EVERY cell in the animal body. With so many pet parents wondering why and how to best support immunity in their dogs and cats, this article will highlight its role and provide practical suggestions. 

A healthy immune system is resilient and powerful and up to the task of supporting normal, balanced function. The immune system is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated.  But even an animal with a highly developed immune system can experience dysfunction or failure. In cases of dysfunction, an animal body requires whole body systemic support. If your pet’s immune system is weakened, every bodily system is at risk for disease. 

When your animal’s immune system is triggered, and if it is not in balance, it sends an alarm throughout the body. In cases of unbalanced immunity, your pet's immune system becomes overactive or suppressed and is no longer able to tell the difference between its own body or a foreign invader. As a result, the animal body basically attacks its own immune system, opening the door to inflammation, infection and autoimmune disease. Fibroids,or fibroid tumors, is an example of an autoimmune disorder. 

Female dogs and cats have a unique set of health needs related to reproductive matters than male dogs or cats. It is not uncommon for female dogs or cats to experience uterine health complications after giving birth to their first litter and often require veterinarian assistance. During pregnancy, a common complication is the development of a uterine fibroid. Uterine fibroids are growths or tumors which develop on the muscles of the uterus. Once developed, fibroids can cause pain and discomfort over a lifetime for your pet.

Forms of uterine fibroids include: 

  1. Subserosa- fibroids grow on the outside the uterine wall and can cause tissue compression on surrounding areas including the bladder and digestive system
  2. Intramural-fibroids are the most common and grow within the wall of the uterus
  3. Sub mucosal-fibroids grow inside the muscular wall of the uterus or womb

  4. Pedunculated-fibroids hang from a stalks outside of the uterine wall.
  5. Malignant fibroids are rare, known as leiomyosarcoma
  6. Rare forms of fibroids which metastasize but are not malignant, known as benign metastasizing leiomyoma

Not all fibroids cause pain or complications for your pet. Some disappear after pregnancy. Vet care is important to monitor the presence of fibroids. When fibroids continue and persist to cause your dog pain and hardship, then your vet may suggest removing the uterus to provide relief for your dog or cat.

In some cases, your veterinarian may need to do an ultrasound of your pet’s abdominal cavity to ensure there are no adverse health complications. When pain and complications are found to be of concern for your female dog or
