Many collies are not able to tolerate certain drugs due to a mutated gene.  The heartworm preventative Ivermectin
and common diarrhea treatment Immodium are just two that can cause devastating consequences.  With
permission from Katrina Mealey DVM, PhD we can provide a link to WSU's "Drug Toxicity" page where you will find
information about drugs to use with caution and ones to avoid completely.  There is also information about the test
that can tell you if your dog is at risk.  
DRUG TOXICITY


INHERITED DISEASES IN THE COLLIE
The University of Prince Edward Island has given us permission to link to their database on Canine Inherited
Disorders including Collie Eye Anomaly, PRA and Corneal Dystrophy.  There is also information on less common
and more devastating disorders like Dermatomyositis.



Clicking on the following individual links will take you to that particular page for information on the disease and how
it is inherited.  You may click on
UPEI COLLIE for information on disorders most commonly found in collies, or
on
UPEI DATABASE for disorders and dogs in general.
