Area pet clinic offers new treatment for Canine Distemper

Local families flocking to Austin animal hospital for experimental treatment


White Angel Animal Hospital, located in Austin, is making quite a name for itself. The facility offers experimental treatment for Canine Distemper, a very contagious and often fatal viral disease that affects many animals. 

The hospital’s owner and founder, Dr. Zilkha developed an interest in the disease and has been treating terminally ill patients. She has seen people who drove their dogs to Austin from across the country for the treatment as she is one of only a handful of veterinarians that perform it. She is continuing to use this protocol and to advise other interested veterinarians on its use in the hopes that it will one day prove to be an effective treatment for Distemper.
