Our own Dr. Winnie Ybarra, an internal medicine specialist here at VCA SFVS, was interviewed for an ABC7 News piece on drug development for the veterinary industry. We think she (and Sookie!) were great on camera.

In the segment, Dr. Ybarra warns pet owners about giving human drugs to their animal companions:
Ybarra said this doesn’t mean people should be turning to their medicine cabinets to treat their pets. Pets can be poisoned by some human-approved medications. “The ER service probably sees that at least once a day, if not more,” Ybarra said.
If you have questions about your pet and medications, please contact your furry friend’s primary care veterinarian or specialist.
