Dog Snatched in Philly Neighborhood

Those who own dogs will agree with the notion that dog ownership is one of the most pleasant experiences people can have. For many, dogs become another family member, a character that has their own personality. There is no doubt that dogs are simply easy to love and hard to hate, which is why it is so upsetting when something terrible happens to them. One of the worst things that can happen to a dog owner is that their dog falls sick, but at least there is always the chance to say goodbye in these situations. When dogs are snatched...

New Treatment for Mast Cell Tumors in Dogs

November 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the approval of Stelfonta (tigilanol tiglate injection) to treat dogs with non-metastatic, skin-based (cutaneous) mast cell tumors (MCTs).
