Sadie and her brother were my first two rescues. At around 8 weeks old, they had been driven out to the country and dumped. Without exception, I’ve found over the years that nobody around the area wants these dumped or abandoned animals. Most people won’t even feed them, for fear that the animal won’t leave. New to the area, and always one to help anyone in need, I took them in. Our three paths crossing in June 2000 would set the course for my taking in all the future cats and dogs I found discarded in my little corner of the world. Sadie’s tragic death would also be one of the big reasons for this blog. I’ve made it my mission to warn every person on the planet about the dangers of Previcox (firocoxib) and all the other NSAIDs given without warning to trusting pet parents.
There are several reasons why I decided to start this blog. One big reason was to warn dog owners of the potentially fatal drug, Previcox. It is probably just known generically as an anti-inflammatory. Sounds harmless, right? Wrong. Actually, beyond wrong. But I’ll get into all that in an upcoming post. You won’t want to miss it, I promise.
