PETCO FOUNDATION AND BLUE BUFFALO TAKE A BITE OUT OF CANINE CANCER! The Mosby Foundation has been awarded a very generous grant by The Petco Foundation and Blue Buffalo to assist with funding the treatment of cancer in dogs. Canine cancer is now the leading cause of death in dogs in this country. This grant is directed toward helping families that may not otherwise be able to afford cancer treatment for their dog. Applicants may complete a preapplication by clicking on our financial aid page. WE CANNOT THANK THE PETCO FOUNDATION AND BLUE BUFFALO ENOUGH!
HEAT KILLS! Tuffy, a scruffy and adorably sweet little terrier arrived at my hospital in a state of collapse with profoundly labored breathing, purplish gums, and a temperature of 106 degrees Fahrenheit (the normal body temperature for a dog is 100-102 degrees). Tuffy’s well-intentioned family let him accompany them on a brief outing and, while they were in the store for a mere ten minutes, Tuffy remained in the car. The outdoor temperature at the time was 82 degrees, and the temperature within the car quickly soared to well above 100 degrees. Tuffy is one of the lucky ones. He survived his episode of heatstroke without any lingering complications and has gone home to rejoin his grateful (and more knowledgeable) family. Most patients with heatstroke don’t fare nearly so well. I invite you to share Tuffy’s story with others with hopes of preventing a needless tragedy. Read More Here...
