Messages from Pet Owners

Luckily I did the research before bringing my puppy to the vet - its amazing how many are not aware of this issue.  My daycare/boarding facility with over 20 years of experience also was not aware so they have removed the Loperamide/Imodium from the premises so there are no mistakes.  After realizing so many pet professionals are not aware of the issue, I designed a multi-purpose tag that will be read by caretakers in the event the dog gets lost, sick, etc. if I am not there. So all my dog's collars all have a tag which makes me worry less when I am not with him!  From Ann D. , April 2011


Because of your MDR1 test, my 7 month old Aussie is alive and well!  I got his results back today and he tested positive.  I had started Koda on Ivermectin for demodex and had given it 2 times when I found out about this website, decided to send in his blood and wait for results to come back before giving him more.  Thank God that I did wait or he would probably be dead by now.   My Veterinarians and I are now educated and I can't thank you enough.  I'm still shaking in disbelief!!!    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!   Toni L.
