The Story of Henry - and Serendipity

“November 2004. Election day. Philadelphia. I was covering for a colleague at the Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania who was on sabbatical – supervising the ICU. I passed through the busy Emergency Room on my way to the ICU. In the incubator was a badly injured 12-week old orange kitten. He was a stray; brought in by someone who saw him hit by a car a few hours prior. He was in shock and had head trauma resulting in neurologic dysfunction and multiple facial fractures. Given the extent of injury in an unowned kitten, the decision had been to euthanize him. I said I’d take him instead. So, we treated him.

Keeping Your Pets Safe this Holiday

The holidays come with an extra bag of tricks when it comes to animal shenanigans so it can be especially difficult to keep your dogs and cats safe. Here are some things to look out for:

Lila's Story - Xylitol Toxicity

Did you know that chocolate is toxic to your pet? How about raisins? Chewing gum? SometimesLila pet owners have to find out the hard way. But 7-month-old, Lila, from Stamford was lucky.

When Lila got into some chewing gum one Sunday night, her owners became concerned. And for good reason. As it turns out, the xylitol in chewing gum and other candy can be lethal to dogs and cats. Lila’s owners rushed her to Cornell University Veterinary Specialists (CUVS). She arrived at CUVS about an hour and a half after she had eaten 38 pieces of Ice Breakers gum.
