Heat Stroke in Dogs

It’s officially Summer and baby it’s hot outside! Veterinarians all over the U.S. are warning dog owners to take the proper steps in heat stroke prevention this year.

We too are on this mission and want all our furry friends to be safe during the Dog Days of Summer. Please take a few moments to read our article on Heat Strokes in Dogs: The Causes, Early Warning Signs, Treatment, & Prevention of heat strokes in dogs.

Be sure to share this valuable pet-saving info with others, too. It’s easy to do. After you finish reading the article, scroll towards the bottom of the page and look for: Share this page? here's where you can easily share the info via your facebook or twitter account. Or if you prefer, share the page with others by linking to it using the html code. It's all ready for you to copy and paste.

note: Miniature Schnauzers do not tolerate the heat well. So be sure take all the extra precautions when going outside with your Mini Schnauzer.

Fourth of July Pet Precautions

With the Fourth of July being celebrated this weekend, we thought a few more dog safety reminders were in order:

  • Dogs should wear their collar and Id tags
  • Leave pets at home (and indoors)
  • Consult Vet about calming aids, if necessary
  • If you do take your dog with you, be sure to watch for the signs of a heat stroke (as mentioned above) sunburn, insects, harmful foods, and firework dangers.

There's been a lot of talk about Frontline Plus losing it's patent and some generic brands popping up offering the same ingredients for less money. In a recent news release however, it stated:

Duluth, Ga., June 14, 2011 - Merial, a leading animal health pharmaceutical company, announced today the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) reconfirmed the patentability of formulation claims covering Merial's FRONTLINE® Plus, the No. 1 flea and tick control product.

Merial is also pursuing litigation against other manufacturers in cases where it believes its patents have been violated.
