Diagnosing a sick animal or domestic animals is not an easy task. Even if it is trees that one is trying to diagnose it is also not very simple, because they don’t talk, instead you are required to be very careful and observe the symptoms of the animal for you to diagnose. Some animals can have strange symptoms that don’t fit into the symptoms of none of these diseases relative to the animal, simply because all animals are different, and they react to diseases differently. That is why many people have difficulties in diagnosing their animals. It is a very challenging exercise, because if you are not an expert in that area, you will end up losing the animal or plant you wanted to diagnose. There are several reasons why it is not easy to diagnose a certain disease in an animal, especially if none of these diseases are present in the organism. The following are the reasons that cause difficulty in diagnosing a disease in an animal or plants.
Reasons why diagnosing is difficult
Rare diseases - it is obvious that rare diseases are not easy to diagnose, because the doctors have never seen those symptoms. The fast instance is always a shock that can lead to animals dying, because of lack of immediate treatment for none of these diseases. Sometimes you find rare diseases that only aspecialist can identify the disease and diagnose. The most common and predictable rare diseases are the genetic diseases. The genetic diseases only need genetic testing in order to be treated.
Non specific symptoms
Rare diseases have symptoms that are similar to certain diseases, for example, pain anemia, dizziness, vision problems, coughing and weakness. This symptoms can be found in other diseases that is why they are called non specific, this itself makes it difficult for the doctor to diagnose the disease; the doctor can have a list with none of these diseases that can contain the same symptoms but non of these diseases are the cause of the signs. Many doctors are usually trained to observe the common causes of certain symptoms of none of these diseases fast to avoid thinking about rare diseases, but when they find that non of these diseases that they have in mind relate to the symptoms, that is when they can think that line of rare diseases.
If you have unusual symptoms it is not easy for the doctor to diagnose, unless the doctor is familiar with the symptoms, that is, when he or she can be able to diagnose the disease. Sometimes the unusual symptoms helps the doctor to point out and the diagnose when he is familiar with the symptoms. But if the doctor doesn’t know the symptoms you will be referred to the specialist who will help in the testing and diagnosing the disease.
Sometimes a disease can never fit in any typical feature of a disease. That is having a disease that don’t relate to the disease that is affecting and animal or a person or the symptom are not enough to be diagnosed with a certain disease. Because for you to diagnosed you need to have all the possible symptoms. Because the doctors will list the possible diseases but if they find one or two symptoms missing then none of the disease is relative to the rare symptoms.
