Keeping Your Pets Safe this Holiday

The holidays come with an extra bag of tricks when it comes to animal shenanigans so it can be especially difficult to keep your dogs and cats safe. Here are some things to look out for:

Lila's Story - Xylitol Toxicity

Did you know that chocolate is toxic to your pet? How about raisins? Chewing gum? SometimesLila pet owners have to find out the hard way. But 7-month-old, Lila, from Stamford was lucky.

When Lila got into some chewing gum one Sunday night, her owners became concerned. And for good reason. As it turns out, the xylitol in chewing gum and other candy can be lethal to dogs and cats. Lila’s owners rushed her to Cornell University Veterinary Specialists (CUVS). She arrived at CUVS about an hour and a half after she had eaten 38 pieces of Ice Breakers gum.

CUVS’ 2015 Courageous Companions Event Portraits by Boprey Photography

On March 21st, Cornell University Veterinary Specialists (CUVS) honored the lives of some of our most "courageous companions". At this very special reunion, our doctors and staff gathered to honor these remarkable animals and their bravery, and demonstrate our appreciation for them and their human families. CUVS also offered each family the opportunity to sit for a professional photographer as a tribute to their beloved companions. We wanted to share these beautiful photos with all our readers, along with a few of their stories.

These pets, along with their supportive and loving families, remind us why we do what we do, and they will always hold a special place in our hearts.
