Sep 8, 2017 00:09:14

Description:

Learn about the study that demonstrated that Simparica blocked the transmission of Lyme and Anaplasmosis in treated dogs.

Simparica-treated dogs, on the other hand, tested negative at all time points and with every test methodology. This demonstrates that Simparica kills tick quickly, and blocked transmission of these pathogens in these dogs.

Case Study: Pooka the Cat

May 5, 2017 00:21:13

Description:

When Pooka first started going to see Dr. Bloom for routine check ups, she was never huge a fan of the experience, but it was "relatively" manageable. She was extraordinary well behaved at home, but veterinary visits just weren't her thing—a scenario that is all too familiar for the veterinary profession. However, her behavior at the vet quickly escalated after a devastating cancer diagnosis required more intensive treatments. In fact, her behavior became so much of a problem that treatment was literally becoming impossible during a time when Pooka's life depended on it. Thankfully, Dr. Bloom was in the midst of adopting something that would turn out to be transformative for not only him and the rest of the veterinary industry, but for Pooka as well: Fear Free. In this podcast, we talk with both Pooka's owner, Howie Nisenbaum, and Dr. Bloom about Pooka's inspiring journey through treatment.
