Collie Dangers

About 70% of Collies have a genetic predisposition to adverse drug reactions involving over a dozen different drugs. Some of those drugs include several antiparasitic agents (ivermectin, milbemycin and related drugs), the antidiarrheal agent loperamide (imodium), and several anticancer drugs (vincristine, doxorubicin, others). Additionally, several foods are toxic (some lethal) to all dogs.
