The Eyes Have It!

The Eyes Have It!

Usually, once a week I have a patient come in for an eye exam. Although, there are veterinary ophthalmologists, many eye concerns for pets can easily be handled by their primary vet.

The first thing that I Iook for is discharge from the eye. Is there any? Which eye, or both? Liquid tearing or more mucous? Color? Are the eyes the same size? Pupils the same size? Dilated puppy or constricted? Is there reddening of the sclera, (the white portion above the iris)? Is the eye squinting?

Medicated Shampoos for Dogs

Medicated Shampoos for Dogs

Medicated shampoos should be used when you have a medical condition of the skin. Simple, right? What kind of conditions would that be? I would consider a dermatologic condition where there is bacteria on the skin resulting in odor, crusting, scale and possibly pustules on the skin. These symptoms could be defined as pyoderma, or a skin infection due to bacteria.

New Treatment for Canine Atopic Dermatitis

Introducing a new therapy that can help relieve itch associated with canine atopic dermatitis for 4 to 8 weeks.

New Treatment for Canine Atopic Dermatitis

If your dog is constantly itching, scratching or chewing because of its allergies to pollens, molds or dust mites, we now have a new biologic therapy that targets itch at its source. It’s called CYTOPOINTTM — it is an injection that starts working within one day and helps provide relief of the clinical signs of atopic dermatitis for four to eight weeks.

It has come to our attention that the monthly oral flea and tick product for dogs, Bravecto, has recently received some bad press. News articles and social media have indicated that the product is responsible for the deaths of many pets.

When these stories are run, they focus more on fear than facts. A similar thing happened with the product Trifexis a few years ago. In order to truly determine what caused the deaths of those pets, diagnostic testing and necropsies (autopsies) should have been performed to confirm the cause of death. They were not.

The truth is that millions of doses of this product have been consumed. Less than 0.01% of these have reported of any ill effects. The most common side affect of Bravecto is gastro intestinal upset, which is on the label.

While ANY medicine comes with potential side effects, we have found Bravecto to be a safe, effective product to protect your pets from fleas and ticks. We are committed to providing your pets with the best care and products available. We will still continue to recommend and sell Bravecto.

Why is My Dog Licking Its Feet?

Canine Atopy: Your Dog's Allergic Reactions

A common allergic reaction we see in dogs is a chronic inflammatory response to environmental substances like grass, dust mites, and mold spores. This condition is termed "atopy". Dogs are typically young when they display the first signs of atopy, usually less than 3 years of age. The areas most commonly affected are the feet, groin area, axillary region (arm pits) and face and ears.
