Then Winn Feline Foundation President Joan Miller came up with the idea of sharing the latest information regarding cats with veterinary professionals in 1979 by holding an annual symposium. The greatest names in cat health have presented at the event, appropriately kicking off with Drs. Terri McGinnis, Niels C. Pedersen, and Fred Scott in 1979…

Cat Alerts that Dog Trapped is in Trouble

A cat is being credited for rescuing a dog found trapped under a car hood. Like Lassie might have done, her cat led Clairessia Gamble the trapped stray dog, trapped in her car engine. It took some time to wiggle the pup free. The dog, named Pipi, is now seeking a forever home at the…

Pet Fire Safety Bill Discussed on WGN Radio

Appropriately fire protections are in place for children in day care facilities, but sadly not for dogs or cats in boarding facilities. I thought we NEED protections in place, a pet fire safety bill, and now there will be a law to support this in Illinois. I speak with Illinois State Senator Donald DeWitte (33rd district),…

Seeking Video of Declawed Cats

I am seeking help to spread the world about cat declaw. I want video of your declawed cats walking – even if that walking appears totally normal (or not). Over 20 years ago, I came out in the popular press and called cat declaws (Onychectomy) “barbaric.”  At around the same time, I co-authored a handout…

Pet Fire Safety Law Passes

When over 30 dogs were killed in a fire in West Chicago at Bully Life Animal Services (formerly D and D Kennels),  2N442 County Farm Road on January 14, I thought this shouldn’t ever happen again.

J. Scott Weese, DVM, DVSc, DACVIM, Ontario Veterinary College, Ontario, Canada is one of the most…

Dr. Google is Not Man’s Best Friend

Veterinary behaviorist Dr. Chris Pachel on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show says that our pets are paying a price – though their caretakers love them – because people source their information from pet store employees, friends at the dog park or Dr. Google. One example, is that the cat urinates outside the…

Cats Can Get Seizures Too

Cats can get seizures, who knew? Dr. Simon Platt, professor of neurology and neurosurgery at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine explains how seizures can be identified in cats on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show. Seizures (like lots of other issues with cats) can fool us – and might even…

Australia’s War on Feral Cats

Australia is at war. The enemy, according to the government are feral cats. Be warned that what you are about to read is true. According to the Australian Government Department of Environment and Energy in an stepped-up effort to protect and in some cases save endangered indigenous animal species, by 2020: Two million feral cats…

Is Your Cat Picky or Sick?

Is your cat picky or sick? This is an exceedingly common question, and probably how the notion of cats being finicky began. In fact, when cats actually don’t eat for a long enough period of time – particularly overweight cats, it increases their chances of a potentially fatal fatty liver disease, called hepatic lipidosis.
