Pet Health News Briefs - June 2012

Posted: June 4, 2012, 1:50 p.m. EDT

HOTLINE HELPER: Animal poison control center Pet Poison Helpline of Minneapolis launched an iPhone app called “Pet Poison Help” to assist pet owners or veterinarians in identifying potential poisons, recognizing symptoms of a potential poisoning and directly dialing the hotline. The $0.99 app includes a searchable database of more than 250 poisonous plants, foods, medications and household items.

Mad Cow Disease
MAD PLATTER: A dairy cow in California tested positive for mad cow disease, also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy, marking the first case in the U.S. since 2006. The animal’s carcass was held at a plant that renders dead cows for “high-protein ingredients for poultry feed and pet food,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

PREVENTIVE MEASURES: Flea and tick preventive brand PetArmor plans to distribute up to 20,000 flea and tick treatments for shelter pets through a partnership with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The FidoPharm Inc. brand will also match public donations up to $50,000 for the ASPCA Adoption and Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital and Clinics in New York and disaster relief efforts.
