Health Reporting



While you all know by now, hopefully, that you and your doctor (by law) are required to report any adverse reaction to VAERS, hardly any person, including veterinarians know how to report an adverse reaction that your animal has. TRUTH.

When we had our large facility, and I was teaching upwards of 16-20 puppy classes per week, I saw adverse reactions weekly - MMM, gut issues, lethargy, swollen joints, behavioral shifts, hives, etc. 

And I also had a dog of my own die from an adverse reaction, years ago.

What my veterinary did not know is that he should have reported it to the USDA APHIS

"... Veterinary drugs, medicated feeds, and animals devices are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The CVM recommends that you first contact the manufacturer to report an adverse event. To contact the CVM directly, call (888) FDA-VETS.

Topical insecticides. Most of the products used topically for the control of ectoparasites and insects on animals are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act. To contact the EPA directly, call (800) 858-7378..."

I hope this helps, Nancy"abuzi43etxpnk8wjn548leebx4ejtmjz.png

    • That's good information. Thank you

        • Does anyone know what to do with the dog's dermatitis? I've been researching potential solutions, and I came across apoquel for dogs canada . Considering trying it out as it seems to have positive reviews for addressing dermatitis in dogs. Has anyone here had experience using Apoquel or dealt with dermatitis in their dogs? I'd love to hear about your insights or any other recommendations you might have for managing this condition in our furry friends

          • Dermatitis in dogs can be caused by a variety of factors, including allergies, infections, and parasites 1. Treatment for dermatitis will depend on the underlying cause of the condition. Some common treatments include:

            1. Identification and avoidance of the allergen: If the dermatitis is caused by an allergy, identifying and avoiding the allergen can help reduce symptoms.
            2. Medicated baths: Medicated shampoos can help soothe the skin and reduce inflammation.
            3. Antibiotics and antifungals: If the dermatitis is caused by a bacterial or fungal infection, antibiotics or antifungal medications may be prescribed.
            4. Supplements: Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids can help improve skin health.
            5. Anti-itch medications: For more serious symptoms, anti-itch medications might be appropriate.

            It’s important to consult with a veterinarian to determine the underlying cause of your dog’s dermatitis and develop an appropriate treatment plan. I hope this information helps!
