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. Indeed, this tragedy, and others like it – which do happen around the country – are often preventable. I thought…

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…

Sign Petition to Support Legalizing Domestic Ferrets in California

The rights of Californians to own domestic ferrets as pets is being blocked by the Sierra Club and their ignorance regarding legalizing domestic ferrets in California. “Sierra Club has long opposed holding wild animals as pets, but particularly when those animals could present a problem if they accidentally or intentionally are introduced into the state’s…

Anti Cruelty Society Bark in the Park on WGN Radio

I begin with WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World by announcing HERE that the bill I proposed to mandate fire safety and protection in Illinois kennels and boarding facilities appears to be on its way to becoming law. In politics, “It ain’t over, till it’s over,” but – for now – it looks good that…

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…

He wasn’t only responsible for saving the Chicago Show, the International Kennel Club (IKC) of Chicago Kennel Club Dog Show, which was held at McCormick Place, became one of the most important and successful shows in the nation. Auslander passed away Monday May 6 at the…

McCracken explains how dogs get the disease. He says it’s “100 percent preventable” IF you use a…

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…
