First, some old business. Regarding a term used in the description of “Tigger and Dave’s Mystery Illness” in the Fall 2000 issue – the term D.I.C stands for disseminated intravascular coagulation. Prognosis is grim and veterinarians and physicians refer to it as “death is certain.” Not 100% certain, but close to it.
