Mystery respiratory illness making dogs sick
These pups have had it ruff. Veterinarians are warning pet owners about an infectious disease that was first detected among dogs a few months ago. Now, cases have spread to at least five states while experts are still trying to figure out the cause, the American Veterinary Medical Association said. Veterinarians describe the illness as a respiratory disease that can cause coughing, sneezing and lethargy. They say it can sometimes lead to pneumonia – and it does not respond to antibiotics. Cases have been reported in several states, including Oregon and Colorado. 🐾 Is your pooch at risk?

Cancer patient pays off millions in medical debt for strangers
Her dying wish is about to come true. Casey McIntyre, a New York City woman who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2019, died Nov. 12 at just 38 years old. In the days leading up to her death, she urged friends to donate to a campaign that would cancel the medical debt of strangers. By the time she died, that campaign raised enough to pay off nearly $19 million in debt – and has since nearly tripled its impact. ❤️
Sprawling storm hits East Coast
