For the better part of four decades, DV Medical Supply has delivered high-quality medical and pharmaceutical supplies for clients operating in various health care sectors. Thanks to its prompt, personal service, DV Medical Supply helps ensure maximal supply chain integrity for health care organizations.

Health care supply chain management represents an essential consideration for companies looking to reduce waste and maximize revenue. Companies often begin by taking an in-depth look at their costs, focusing on hidden costs such as management and movement of supplies and inventory holding. In the same vein, health care organizations must identify sources of financial waste and rectify them as quickly as possible. A common way to reduce financial waste is to standardize inventories available to clinicians, avoiding potentially costly preference items from each physician.

Outside of reducing financial waste, inventory management is a key component of supply chain management. Thanks to technological advances, health care organizations can use comprehensive tracking systems to understand how supplies flow in and out of their inventory. Using this data, companies can make informed purchasing decisions and reduce inefficiencies due to poor inventory management.

The Special Bond With Your Dog

Chemical bonding is a lasting attraction between two atoms creating an attraction with opposing charges. Much like this known fact, the bond of a mother and her child is a strong bond just like the bond between a dog and its owner. Many people will describe their dog just like a mother will describe their child to a stranger. According to biological factors of the body, once you have had a close bond with your dog, making eye-contact with a dog releases a chemical called oxytocin in both parties. This same chemical is released when a mother and her child make eye-contact, which is why once your dog is mindful of this bond they will attribute more child-like behaviors. Many dogs after having the realization of the close bond with their owner they will start to share emotions and the most common shared emotion is yawning. Having a great bond with your dog is a good thing not only for the gain of trust of your dog but as well as the happiness that is gained along the way. This is why DV Medical Supply, Inc. believes that the bond between you and your furry friend is a very special once.

A medical and pharmaceutical supply company headquartered in Gardena, California, DV Medical Supply provides top-quality service to clients throughout the health care sector. DV Medical Supply also maintains an active philanthropic presence, supporting organizations such as JDRF.

Formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, JDRF works to create a world where nobody has to struggle with type-1 diabetes (T1D). In addition to funding research to find effective cures and treatments for the disease, JDRF sponsors research into preventing the onset of T1D. Although T1D is not currently preventable, there may still be risk factors that individuals can avoid.

Thanks to research grants provided by JDRF, medical scientists have discovered a link between T1D onset and triggers such as viral infections and environmental conditions. Based on these associations, researchers have begun investigating potential vaccines for T1D. Another exciting avenue of inquiry involves microbes in the gut, which may play an important role in the onset of autoimmune disorders such as T1D.

Medications for Dogs – Metronidazole

A wholesale distributor of pharmaceutical and medical products, including veterinary drugs, DV Medical Supply, Inc., has been serving the health care marketplace since 1978. Among its many quality pharmaceutical veterinary products, DV Medical Supply offers metronidazole tablets in two dosages, 250 and 500 milligrams.

For dogs with bacterial infections in the large intestine, metronidazole is a particularly effective drug treatment. The antibiotic works to reduce inflammation in intestinal tissues and abate symptoms such as diarrhea. Moreover, doctors for people and animals alike use metronidazole in conjunction with other antibiotics to address a variety of bacterial infections.

Metronidazole clears bacterial infections by attacking the bacteria’s ability to construct DNA, meaning it can no longer reproduce. The drug can kill bacteria that thrive in deoxygenated environments, like those created by damaged tissues, by inhibiting certain enzymes.

Not all dogs are good candidates for metronidazole treatment, however. The drug should not be prescribed for puppies nor expecting or lactating mothers.
