American Veterinary Association advocates for early detection for pets

“Veterinarians know that early detection allows problems to be treated more easily and more affordably, and usually results in a better outcome for the pet.”
— American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)

We want to hear from you!

We are in the process of sending out a newsletter to our subscribers early next week.

The manufacturer of our test materials has asked us to find out what other products our customers would be interested in having.  Or any suggestions for changes to the current test strips.

We’re excited to hear from everyone and get their ideas and input.

Chinese Jerky treats update

The US Food and Drug Administration is reporting 2200 cases of dog and cat illness due to jerky treats imported from China.

Of this number 360 dogs and 1 cat died.

FDA reports of illness from these treats go back to 2007.  They are advising people who feed their animals these treats to be aware of symptoms of illness including vomiting, decreased appetite, decreased activity, diarrhea, increased water consumption and to stop feeding the treats if your pet shows these symptoms.

It makes more sense to advise people not to give their pets any treats that were manufactured in China!
