Baby Sage came into Advanced Veterinary Care after one of her hind legs was shredded in a fan belt. As an outdoor kitty, Sage was likely hiding from the extreme cold that overtook the Yankton area. Her momma was able to catch her and bring her in for evaluation - but not without a few battle wounds!
Our sweet Henry came to us after stumping quite a few people with his predicament. Henry, a 107-pound yellow Labrador, lost the ability to use his hind legs overnight. No trauma incidents and no clear indicators on x-rays either. After a few nights' stay with us, Henry and his parents traveled to Ames, Iowa to visit a veterinary school and try to formulate a plan of attack.
The idea of microorganisms living in your body can be pretty frightening! Creepy-crawlies going about their business inside your stomach may not seem like a comforting fact, but it should be! Probiotics go to work every day to compete with bad bacteria – like salmonella and E. coli – so that they can’t take over and make you feel ill. Over one billion dollars are spent annually on humans consuming probiotics, but what about pets? Even though they have different digestive systems than humans, their guts need protection too!
