A Heart-Breaking Bug, plus a Plethora of Goodies

When a 3-year-old Japanese Spitz started fainting, the dog’s horrified owners wasted no time getting her to the veterinary medical teaching hospital at Texas A&M. A pacemaker restored Kiska’s steady heartbeat, but the cause of her condition required further investigation. Learn about the kissing bug that likely delivered a parasitic infection that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has targeted for public health action.

Kayla Bertagnolli stumbled upon a plethora of goodies recently. While waiting for a flight to take her to shows in Southern California, an online search and a stop at an airport newsstand introduced our DFR blogger to a selection of doggie-themed gift ideas and some amazing pet stories. Find out how Kayla keeps busy when her flight is delayed.
