Making Significant Contributions To Veterinary Medicine

VIEW UC DAVIS Recepients

In 1997 Leo Grillo received the EL BLANCO AWARD from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine for establishing the worlds first kidney dialysis center for dogs and cats. Since then DELTA Rescue and it’s two state-of-the-art hospitals with Chief Veterinarian Dr. Gaylord Brown continue to help animals from around the world.

D.E.L.T.A. Rescue Has Been A Forerunner In Rehabilitation Medicine

We were one of the first facilities to utilize magnetic resonance, therapeutic ultrasound, and cold laser therapy to treat orthopedic degeneration and injuries. We constantly look for cutting edge treatment modalities to treat our aging population.

Hospice Care

D.E.L.T.A. Rescue continues to develop hospice care to assist those animals in humanely passing to the other side. This includes drug therapies and physical therapies to alleviate discomfort. We continue to explore alternative cancer therapies for both palliative and definitive cures.

Tick Fever Treatment

Through our efforts on rescue of dogs from the southern desert we have gained valuable information in the treatment of tick fever. This includes both during the acute phase and management of occult infections. We have also gained information in the management of canine influenza in an isolated population.

With cats we have learned much about the management of cats with FeLv, FIV, and FIP. Testing positive for these disorders is no longer a death sentence. Through the efforts of one of our staff veterinarians there is a pending publication on the safe long term use of corticosteroids in cats. This paper has dispelled some of the myths surrounding using anti-inflammatory doses of this medication.

Dr Gaylord Brown

We will continue to search for and implement techniques that will enhance our animal’s quality of life.

We have created a large database of questions asked by pet owners and answered by our Chief Veterinarian Dr. Brown.  Below are questions asked about vaccinations:

Wonderful website. Recently rescued a kitten who has ringworm. She was prescribed lime/sulpher dip which is working but has not totally cleared it. Have dipped 6 times. Also applying a topical antifungal. How do you manage ringworm at your shelter? My kitten is seperated from my two dogs and eight cats but I am afraid of them catching it. I have gotten ringworm and am being treated by a derm. Does the ringworm usually resolve? What type of disinfectant do you use at the shelter? Any info you could share on the subject would be very appreciated. Thank you

I have a 1 year old Cat that just had 5 Kittens, I want to get her Spayed, How much would i be looking at to spay her and one of her kittens? She has not been vaccinated, So I am guessing that will be necessary as well.

I have a 2 year male american pitbull terrier, he was put on temaril due to kennel cough. I have experienced aggression problems every since the second day of medication. Is this normal? can the steroid in the medication be causing this?

Several years ago Leo wrote in one of his newsletters that cats who have had annual shots for several years (I forget the exact wording here) do not need to continue with them. In fact, a visit to the vet can do more harm than good since it is possible for them to pick up a virus while there. I have not been giving my cats shots and they remain healthy, but I worry that I am doing them some sort of harm, especially since they are indoor/outdoor pets. I'd appreciate your comments.

I just got a post card from my vet reminding us that our 4 yr old Lab is due his DHLPP & CVK. Are both of these shots necessary on a yearly basis?

We have rescued many Shelties over the last 20+ years and they have all enjoyed a good life until they reach about 12 - 13 years. We know that at least four of our Shelties have died of cancer: pancreas, prostate, bladder and lung. They all have been given premium dog food, regular checkups. We have read that flea control could be one of the reasons for the cancer or we could be "over" vaccinating our pets. Can you please share your thoughts on this?

I live in the Northeast. My vet has recommended giving my 2 year old Amstaff the lyme vaccination. We do get ticks in our area, but I am concerned about subjecting her to more. Do you know how safe these vaccines are?
