It’s been known for many years that dogs can suffer illness because of tick transmitted Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and a disease called ehrlichiosis.
You can’t help but wonder if Dr. Kathryn Meurs hollered “Bingo!” when she found a gene mutation in Maine Coon cats that is clearly associated with feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the most common form of heart disease in cats.
Pets can now enhance the spread of so-called “super bugs,” which have historically been caught in the hospital by people.
She had climbed about 12,000 feet on Mount Whitney in Southern California when the idea occurred to Charlene LaBelle to write a book about backpacking with dogs.
It’s the greatest show on earth, or the greatest dog show, anyway. The AKC/Eukanuba National Championship is January 14 and 15 at the Tampa Convention Center and the St. Pete Times Forum. The show - which includes not only confirmation (the beauty contest dog show you typically see on TV), but also obedience and an agility competition – airs live on both Discovery and Animal Planet, 8 p.m. EST (both nights).
