Multidrug Sensitivity & Testing


No Description

Multidrug Sensitivity (e.g. ivermectin)

Some breeds of dogs are more sensitive to certain drugs compared to other breeds. For example, Collies, Australian Shepherds and several other breeds are often more sensitive to the antiparasitic drug, ivermectin.

Why are some breeds more sensitive to the effects of drugs than other breeds? Which drugs have been reported to cause problems? At Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine you can get your dog tested for drug sensitivity and keep up with the latest research.

Testing can be completed either through us, or on your own.  Below are the links to the specific WSU site:
