Don't Look a Pink River Dolphin in the Eye

River dolphins with pink coloring swim the Amazon, Araguaia/Tocantis and Orinoco river basins of
South America.  Legend has it that making eye contact with the river dolphin will result in a lifetime of nightmares, and perhaps the intervention of a local shaman can help break the spell.

River dolphins are the largest fresh water dolphins in the world up to nine feet long and weighing up to 300 pounds.  Females are typically larger than males.  They are known for a light gray or carnation pink coloring and long beak with molar-like teeth.

If you have a dog or cat that is causing nightmares not by spell, but in behavior, Marietta Vet Clinic and Marietta veterinarian, Julian Peckich DVM can help.  Specializing in healthcare, pet vaccinations, sick pet care for the dogs in cats in Marietta, GA.

Dog Named Adam Allergic to Humans

It is a known fact that some people are allergic to dogs, but a dog out of Indianapolis named Adam is
allergic to people, as told by the staff at Lucky Dog Retreat Rescue.  The rare condition has plagued the black lab, but thanks to a local veterinarian, help is on the way.

The rescue group has treated may dogs for heartworm and other devastating conditions, but this pup came as a surprise when it was declared allergic to people.  After Adam was declared free of fleas, given special veterinarian baths twice weekly, and fed he best food possible, the rescue group looked for a different answer.  

A local veterinarian gave Adam a blood test confirming the unique allergy to human dander.  A treatment, or special serum will be given and recovery expected.

If your pet has a skin condition that comes and goes, or just never clears up, perhaps time time for a trip to the veterinarian office.  Your vet can offer advice on what to do to help your dog.  Sometimes, simple recommendations such as food that can make a big difference in the quality of life. 

The shelter raised the money to save Adam. Donations to Lucky Dog Retreat Rescue can be given to the shelter in the name of Adam or other needy animals.
