Congestive heart failure (CHF) can affect dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds, but most commonly occurs in older dogs. If not diagnosed and treated properly, CHF can cause a rapid deterioration in health that ultimately results in death. ”The number one cause of CHF in our practice are chronic bad teeth and gum infections” says Dr. Biehl. “So it is very important to address these issues at an early age in a dog or cat's life”.
The majority of dogs or cats with CHF tend to suffer from:
Atrioventricular Valvular Insufficiency (AVVI) A disease of the heart valves with a slow progression
Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) A disease of the heart muscle with a rapid progression

Focus 3 is indicated for the vaccination of healthy, susceptible cats as an aid in the reduction of diseases caused by Feline Rhinotracheitis (Herpesvirus), Feline Calicivirus, and Feline Panleukopenia. Cats can be vaccinated at 12 weeks of age. If cats are vaccinated at less than 12 weeks of age, a second vaccination should be administered at 12-16 weeks of age to assure vaccination against Feline Panleukopenia.
Directions And Dosage

Immediately withdraw the rehydrated vaccine into the dropper. Place one drop of vaccine in the corner of each eye. The remaining vaccine is administered by placing the vaccine equally in each nostril as the animal inhales. This vaccine is NOT to be injected. Annual revaccination is recommended.
Store out of direct sunlight at a temperature between 35°-45°F (2°-7°C). Do not freeze. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not vaccinate pregnant animals. Burn containers and all unused contents.
