National Respect Your Cat Day

How could I miss it? National Respect Your Cat Day should be a national holiday. I’m the guy who for years has been calling cats the Rodney Dangerfield of pets, as historically cats are given up to shelters more often than dogs or sometimes just tossed outside. Likely cats are more often victims of animal…

Passing of former AVMA and WVA Association President

Veterinary medicine lost a dedicated leader. The last time I saw her she had recently been named President of the World Veterinary Association .

Swaying Cats to Aim Into the Litter Box

Here’s what you can say for sure about litter boxes and cats. Eliminating outside the box is a significant cause of death.

Don’t Believe the Hype: Dogs are Not Wolves

Of course, dogs evolved from wolves, but it’s definitely not as advertised. Dogs evolved from a wolf species circa 40,000 years ago. And that species is long gone.
