New Treatment for dogs with Lymphoma

Great news today from Dr. Nancy Kay, animal advocate and writer of Speaking for Spot. There is a new treatment approved for dogs with Lymphoma that has been getting great results. The following is Dr. Kay's blog:

"For the first time in a very long time, a new drug has been approved for dogs with lymphoma. The drug is called Tanovea-CA1 and it is produced by VetDC Inc., a startup company associated with Colorado State University. Earlier this month, Tanovea-CA1 received conditional approval from the Food and Drug Administration for treatment of dogs with lymphoma.

PET FOOLED- A must see video for every pet parent

  Last evening I watched an incredible documentary on the pet food industry. This film, produced by Kohl Harrington, attempts to uncover the truth about the food that we have been feeding our  dogs and cats. I say attempts because it appears he is thwarted on many fronts by pet food manufacturers, AAFCO, and the FDA. It appears that the regulations we assume protect our pets from "bad things" being put in their food, do not really exist. The marketing and labeling of pet food is regulated but not the quality of the ingredients that the food contains.

Learn Life-Saving CPR for your Pet

Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine has created an online CPR course that is open to anyone and takes about one hour to complete. The fee is $45.00.

In the Pet CPR Course, you will learn how to determine if your pet needs CPR, how to do chest compressions to get blood flowing and to do mouth to snout ventilation to get oxygen into the blood while you’re transporting your pet to the vet.

Pet CPR is authored by Daniel J. Fletcher, PhD, DVM, DACVECC, Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Associate Professor of Emergency and Critical Care.

End of use of live animals in training paramedics

I want to share some exciting news with you. This is from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

 "Immediately after the Physicians Committee brought public attention to the use of live animals in a Houston-area paramedic training program, the institutions responsible announced an end to the practice. Officials at Baylor College of Medicine and the Montgomery County Hospital District (MCHD) stated that human-based training methods have replaced the use of pigs and they "do not have any live animal training planned in the future.
