WHAT IS DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY (DCM)?

DCM is one of the most common acquired heart diseases in dogs. It is a disease of the heart muscle (myocardium), in which the muscles of the lower pumping chambers (ventricles) lose its ability to contract normally. This occurs because the heart muscle becomes thin and stretched, much like a balloon.

THREE RABID RACCOONS AND ONE SKUNK IN FAIR LAWN

There is breaking news that a fourth case of rabies was confirmed this past week in a skunk in Fair Lawn.  It followed positive testing of three raccoons reported by residents in different parts of the borough this month.  

These confirmed cases bring to light that rabies is still a very real threat in our area.  The most important thing to remember is that there is a vaccine for the rabies virus, but there is no cure for rabies and it is fatal.  The virus is transmitted to pets and people by the bite of an infected animal.
