Keeping Your Pets Safe at Christmas

Keeping your pets healthy!

 

Many of our readers have pets, including dogs, that they love and want to keep safe.  Countless others will add a puppy or a kitten during the holiday season.  Christmas and holiday functions are great fun, but they create lots of opportunities for your furry pal to end up at the vet.  Here are some tips to keep your four-legged members of the family safe:

  • Poinsettias are poisonous to dogs and cats
  • Pets should not have any real bones, they can splinter and cause injury
  • Pets cannot easily digest pork (No bacon for Fido!)
  • Feeding pets greasy foods can lead to messy outcomes
  • Ribbons and bows are easy targets for your cat
  • Breads, batters, and candies are not for pets
  • Of course, chocolate is a big no-no as it is toxic for dogs and cats.

Following these simple tips will help keep your furry friends healthy and lead to a Happy New Year.

 

DePuy Attune Knee Replacement System


We are currently investigating potential claims on behalf of adults that had a knee replacement using the DePuy Synthes Attune Knee Replacement System.

A recent study published recently by the Journal of Knee Surgery identified an unusually high rate of early failures of this device. The study notes an failure with regards to breakdown of the bond of the tibial implant-cement interface. Many patients who have received the Attune knee implant system have had problems with instability and weakness in the knee joint, swelling beyond expected swelling, loss of range of motion, and significant long term pain,

If the DePuy Synthes Attune Knee Replacement System fails, a revision surgery will most likely be required. Typically, re-doing a previous surgery can be more involved and invasive than the first. Failure also leads to significant scarring from the additional incisions. If you or a family member has a DePuy Synthes Attune Knee Replacement System that has failed, we can help. Call or text our office at 256-539-3110 today.
