If you have a dog ... PLEASE read this and send it on. If you don't have a dog, please pass along to friends who do. Written by: Laurinda Morris, DVM Danville Veterinary Clinic Danville , OH This week I had the first case in history of raisin toxicity ever seen at MedVet. My patient was a 56-pound, 5 yr old male neutered lab mix that ate half a canister of raisins sometime between 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM on Tuesday. He started with vomiting, diarrhea and shaking about 1 AM on Wednesday but the owner didn't call my emergency service until 7 AM. I had heard somewhere about raisins AND grapes causing acute Renal failure but hadn't seen any formal paper on the subject. We had her bring the dog in immediately. In the meantime, I called the ER service at MedVet, and the doctor there was like me - had heard something about it, but... Anyway, we contacted the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center and they said to give IV fluids at 1 & 1/2 times maintenance and watch the kidney values for the next 48-72 hours. The dog's BUN (blood urea nitrogen level) was already at 32 (normal less than 27) and creatinine over 5 (1.9 is the high end of normal). Both are monitors of kidney function in the bloodstream. We placed an IV catheter and started the fluids. Rechecked the renal values at 5 PM and the BUN was over 40 and creatinine over 7 with no urine production after a liter of fluids. At that point I felt the dog was in acute renal failure and sent him on to MedVet for a urinary catheter to monitor urine output overnight as well as overnight care. He started vomiting again overnight at MedVet and his renal values continued to increase daily. He produced urine when given lasix as a diuretic. He was on 3 different anti-vomiting medications and they still couldn't control his vomiting. Today his urine output decreased again, his BUN was over 120, his creatinine was at 10, his phosphorus was very elevated and his blood pressure, which had been staying around 150, skyrocketed to 220 ... He continued to vomit and the owners elected to Euthanize. This is a very sad case - great dog, great owners who had no idea raisins could be a toxin. Please alert everyone you know who has a dog of this very serious risk. Poison control said as few as 7 raisins or grapes could be toxic. Many people I know give their dogs grapes or raisins as treats including our ex-handler's. Any exposure should give rise to immediate concern. Onions, chocolate, cocoa, avocadoes and macadamia nuts can be fatal, too. Even if you don't have a dog, you might have friends who do. This is worth passing on to them.

Hello

 

I just wanted to inform you that there will be a controlled burn at Little Mountain Park this afternoon. My apologies for the short notice, I was just informed myself.

 

Thanks

Please drop by and have a look see at our 3rd garage sale for the Little Mountain Park Conservancy Group. It will be held at 8 Marlyn Place, Saturday May 12th and Sunday May 13th from 9:00AM to 4:00PM.

Somebody wrote all over the club house. The City has been informed as well as the police.

 

WINNIPEG — A late winter storm is brewing as we head into March, triggering Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement on Thursday for southern Manitoba.

The weather agency says a major storm system is tracking into the province beginning Sunday and persisting through Monday.

 

Southern Manitoba is in the path of a Colorado Low as the system spreads heavy snow northwards from the U.S.

“Southern Manitoba will see multiple batches of snow over the coming days as this storm develops,” the statement says.

“The first is forecast to occur on Friday night into Saturday morning. Snow is forecast to develop in North Dakota, then lift northwards through southern Manitoba. Amounts with this band of snow are forecast to remain low, with general accumulations of up to four centimetres.”

Great news, Sadie has been found. After a week away from home the family is back together.

January 2018
Happy New Year! 
We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is ready for what is to come in 2018! 
One thing to note is that 2018 is the Year of the Dog! So while we celebrate all the fun and exciting things that are in store for us this year, remember to also celebrate with your pooch too !
 

Change a Pet’s Life Day

Did you know that there’s a special animal holiday coming up? January 24th is Change A Pet’s Life Day! If you’re an animal lover, like us, you may wish that you could help every homeless pet. While that may be too much for any one person to manage, you can definitely change the life of at least one pet. Here, a Brampton, ON vet discusses how we can really make a difference to our animal companions.

Adopting

The best thing you can do to change a pet’s life is to adopt one. Bringing a new pet into your home is a lifetime commitment, however. Before proceeding, make sure you are ready to provide your new furry friend with great care for the rest of his or her life. That said, if all the lights are green, why not give a cute, lovable animal a second chance?

Helping Pets In Need

If you’re not able to adopt right now, you can still help pets in need. Donating time, money, or goods is one great way to help. And if you know of an animal that is in a bad situation, speak up! That small act of kindness could make a huge difference. Fostering is another option. This isn’t going to be the right path for everyone, as some people have a very hard time saying good bye when the time comes, but if you have the time and money, consider giving a pet a temporary home. Ask at a local shelter for more information.

Promoting Animal Welfare

Some of the best things you can do to promote good animal welfare start right at home. Make sure that your dog or cat has been spayed or neutered, and is up to date on their vaccinations and parasite control products. Training is also very important for dogs. As for kitties, we strongly recommend keeping Fluffy safe and sound inside.

Spread The Word

Last but not least, spread the word about this pet-tastic holiday by sharing posts on social media. You can share information about animal welfare, or tell the story of how you adopted your pet. Or, post the information for a pet that needs a home. When it comes to helping animals, every little bit counts!

Foster Care Updates

Update on Phoenix...
Please meet Phoenix. This little sweetie, a basset/jack russell cross, is under one-year old and very friendly, easy going with people. She is looking for a home that will provide her with structure and lots of exercise (her jack russell characteristics will do best in this type of environment).

The rescue had her fully checked out when she first came in. She was brought fully up to date on vaccinations, and tested negative for heart worm. She has been on heart worm preventive since she arrived and we also had her spayed. Ideally she is looking for a home without other pets as she likes to be the centre of attention. A family with pets may be considered but it will depend on the home and the experience of the family as we have seen some issues with her wanting to assert dominance in a multi-dog situation.

Ideal families will also need to work on some leash manners with her as this young girl was never on a leash prior to coming into the rescue. The rescue will set up the adopting family with our trainer to assist with leash manners, and some basic socialization skills. She is housebroken and crate trained.

Do you think your home would be perfect for Phoenix? Please complete an application to be considered. Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like us to send you an application.
