Xylitol – buyer beware, danger to your pets

By:  Doris Calloway, DVM Recently, I’ve noticed that there has been a lot of articles on various social media sites about xylitol and its danger to dogs.  I have had several friends and family forward me articles asking if they were true. Unfortunately, the articles are true.  Xylitol is extremely toxic to dogs (and ferrets!).  Deadly, actually. Xylitol is a low calorie sweetener found in many human products: -Chewing gum -Toothpaste -Breath sprays -Mouthwash -Sugar Free Candy -chewable vitamins and…

Why can’t my pet get vaccines if they are sick?

By: Doris Calloway DVM   You have to bring Fido to see the vet for his diarrhea.  He’s due for his vaccines, has not been vaccinated yet and you think he may have Parvo, can’t you get his Parvo vaccine now to help him? Unfortunately, the answer is no.     Vaccines are great – they protect against horrible diseases that there are no cures for.  They work by telling the immune system to make antibodies against those diseases. This…

Avian Bornavirus

Dr. Starks talks this month about Avian Bornavirus. Avian Bornavirus (ABV) is a progressive and often fatal disease that causes neurologic symptoms in birds. It is ubiquitous and approximately 1/3 of companion parrots are infected with the virus. Although prevalence is high, most parrots are asymptomatic carriers and not all of these infected birds will demonstrate signs or become ill. Until recently recognition and diagnosis of ABV in parrots was rare. In 2008, ABV was identified as the causative agent…

These mechanisms allow veterinarians to successfully treat…
