Veterinarians report mysterious link between dog food and hypercalcemia
Posted on 02 Sep 2010 by Brandon M

From VIN News.

Veterinarians are trying to discern whether roughly a dozen dogs testing positive for hypercalcemia and consuming the same high-end diet is merely coincidence or a problem with the pet food in question.

The reports have cropped up on the Veterinary Information Network (VIN), an online community for the profession and parent of the VIN News Service. In message board discussions, veterinarians have revealed cases of hypercalcemia secondary to vitamin D toxicosis occurring in dogs that eat a single brand of dry pet food: Blue Buffalo Wilderness Diet, chicken flavor. In each of the cases, veterinarians report that dogs’ conditions have improved after switching brands.

So far, nothing concrete has identified a causal relationship between the food and illnesses in dogs. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), while reportedly alerted to adverse events tied to the food, has not prompted a recall, though the VIN News Service has been unable to reach officials with the regulatory agency directly.

Lost Blind, Deaf, 3-Legged Dog Found
Posted on 22 Aug 2010 by Brandon M

From KTVZ.COM.

PRINEVILLE, Ore. -- A blind and deaf border collie with the use of only three of his legs survived three weeks lost in the woods -- but thanks to many eyes looking out for "Happy Jack," he's back home with his Prineville family.

"I believe we got a miracle from God -- there's just no doubt about it," Linda Keter said Friday.

Keter adopted the now-9-year-old tri-colored pooch from a border collie rescue a few years ago.

Keter and her family took the dog camping as usual a few weeks ago -- but this time, Happy Jack wandered away from camp -- something she said he's never done before.

"We all jumped on our horses, split up and went in three different directions," she recalled.

"My husband went and woke up all the other campers that were camping in the area, and they jumped on their ATVs and their motorcycles and their horses and went in search of" the lost dog, Keter said.

After about three weeks in the woods, Happy Jack finally was found by a group of horse riders who saw a flyer for the dog and were determined to find him.

Out on a trail, they saw something out of the corner of their eye, and it happened to be Happy Jack -- hungry, tired and barely alive.

They called Keter, who rushed out -- and after three weeks of searching, sleepless nights and calling every vet and shelter in the area, she and Happy Jack were reunited.

Hundreds flock to Rydal Sheepdog Trials
Posted on 17 Aug 2010 by Brandon M

From The Westmorland Gazette.

Whistles, barking dogs and monsoon-like rain all served to ensure a treasured Lake District event was a memorable one.

The 107th Vale of Rydal Sheepdog Trials and Hound Show took over Rydal Park, Ambl-eside, thanks to Richard Le Fleming and tenant farmer Chris Hodgson, who gathered the sheep down from the fells for dozens of dogs to fetch and gather.
