How Many Dogs Have to Die?

August 3, 2017

Yes, Narcan does work for dogs

July 31, 2017

Narcan, the nasal spray that blocks opioid receptors in the brain and revives overdose victims, has become somewhat controversial as people question giving addicts several chances at escaping death when they refuse to get help with their recovery.
