PetScoop -- Cancer-Fighting Drug Effective in Dogs

CancerDog_Oscar.jpg

Intriguing health development reported at WebMD:


Researchers with the Cleveland Clinic have successfully treated cancer in dogs without toxic side effects or discomfort. The feat could soon lead to a powerful new strategy for treating the disease in people.

Joseph A. Bauer, PhD, with the Center for Hematology & Oncology Molecular Therapeutics at the Cleveland Clinic, detailed the extraordinary achievement at the 237th national meeting of the American Chemical Society in Salt Lake City.

Bauer's team's success story begins with a "miracle dog" named Oscar, a 10-year-old male Bichon Frise stricken with an extremely aggressive form of cancer called anal sac adenocarcinoma. Chemotherapy and radiation failed to treat the dog's disease, which left him unable to walk. Oscar had about 3 months left to live.

That's when Bauer and colleagues gave him an innovative cancer-killing drug called nitrosylcobalamin (NO-Cbl). Within two weeks, Oscar's cancer significantly improved and he was back on his feet.

And Oscar isn't the only dog on the road to recovery. Read report.

For Pet Lovers -- New Book Release: One Nation Under Dog

onenation.jpg

Author Michael Schaffer releases his new book One Nation Under Dog this week. Focused mainly on dogs but for all pet lovers, he provides a fascinating look at America's obsession with its beloved pets as well as our changing attitudes towards our pets over the past decades.

The author contends that the evolution in pet ownership can teach us much about ourselves, "how contemporary pets explain contemporary America". Just a few of the many areas he covers are pampered pets ("our fur babies"), leash laws, dog parks, pet insurance, pet service businesses, veterinary standards, pet law, designer pet food and products, ultimately dealing with the death of a pet and pet bereavement.

Read an excerpt from the book online at The Boston Globe Why we treat our pets like royalty:

Today's pet owners "view their pets as full-fledged members of the family, with regard to which they would no more take lightly any serious cutbacks on spending than they would for their kids," concluded a March market report from the consumer-research group Packaged Facts. A 2001 survey for the American Animal Hospital Association revealed that 83 percent of pet owners call themselves their animal's "mommy" or "daddy."

A book for pet lovers, One Nation Under Dog will educate you, entertain you and touch your heart.

ProDen PlaqueOff Animal -- Healthier Teeth and Gums for Cats and Dogs

plaqueoff.jpg

Does your pet have bad breath? Like many of us, you may not be in the habit of brushing your pet's teeth. PlaqueOff Animal effectively fights bad breath, tartar and plaque. It is a food additive in granulated form, a completely natural product which is suitable for both cats and dogs.

It is formulated from a special type of seaweed (D1070 ) which has been found to have specific beneficial effects for oral care. It is also rich in natural iodine and contains important vitamins and minerals and is free from artificial colors, preservatives, gluten and sugar.

As you have heard from your dentist, plaque bacteria constantly forms in the mouth and can accumulate on teeth, gums and the tongue resulting in bad breath, gum disease (bleeding gums), tartar and tooth decay. If it is left untreated this can lead to pain and unnecessary or premature tooth loss.

Same for our pets. Bad breath is often the first sign of a problem. Nip it in the bud with PlaqueOff Animal.
