Heartworm Preventive now more important than ever

Last month we received word that the US Food and Drug Administration is forcing the shutdown of the one and only plant that manufactures Imiticide, the drug used to treat canine heartworm infection. This follows many months of severe shortages of the same drug.

Veterinarians are now left with no means to treat or cure existing heartworm infections ion dogs.

This makes it even more important for dogs in central Texas to take heartworm preventive once a month, all year long. If a pet owner skips even just one month, that’s enough for heartworm larvae to get into a dog and set up an infection. Prevention has now become the treatment. Be vigilant.

Romer the Cat Does Ulrasound

Hey guys, Romer the cat here.

Not much going on in the McKinney office yesterday. So I ran around surgery at full speed for a while. Tore up some paper towels. Had to hiss at a big, hairy, brown dog that sniffed me.

Later, the humans wanted me to play with a ridiculous cloth mouse on the end of a string, but I had a better idea. I decided to walk around on the keyboard of the ultrasound machine. It’s warm and the lighted buttons tickle my toes. It’s also a great place to nap. Turns out that with very little effort I can even make the machine print out screen captures of the ultrasound appearance of open room air. Check out my photos - did ‘em all by myself! The humans didn’t seem to think this was nearly as hilarious as I did, but what do they know anyway? Bipeds!
