  • Dogs can get wounded in many ways, and different wounds require different treatments.

  • Chemotherapy drugs are used to treat cancer and other conditions in people because they target and kill rapidly dividing neoplastic (cancer) cells and other cells. They’re primarily used as anti-cancer agents, but may also provide benefit for a variety of auto-immune disorders and for organ transplant recipients as immunosuppressive agents.

  • The death of a cherished pet creates a sense of loss for adults and produces a predictable chain of emotions. However, the effects on children vary widely depending upon the child's age and maturity level.

  • One of the most common questions asked by an expectant parent or grandparent to a veterinary healthcare provider is how to introduce the family dog to a new infant, particularly if the dog has not been exposed to children before.

  • Cryosurgery (cryotherapy) is the application of extreme cold to destroy abnormal or diseased tissue.

  • How dogs see color is a long-standing topic of research and the results are pretty amazing. While dogs can’t appreciate all the colors that humans do, their world is not entirely black and white. In fact, dogs live in a pretty colorful world.

  • Elizabethan collars or E-collars are plastic "hoods" or cones placed around the head to prevent an animal from licking at a surgery site, wound or dressing. It is natural for dogs to lick their wounds but this can seriously delay healing and result in infection or injury.
