Natural Disaster's Hidden Costs
May 9, 2011
When Tornados, Floods or Hurricanes occur; pets, horses and other animals can be separated from their owners and families by miles and for extended periods of time. Pets can be adopted out during the separation in an attempt to help the wondering animal. So when the original owner tries to reclaim their family member – ownership may have to be proven on the spot to get your family member back. Same thing may occur for horses and other animals. For these reasons, MobiPetTags has announced an additional “Pet ID Photo” option for MobiPetTags customers, where they can keep up to 10 photos of personal pet photos specifically taken for identification purposes. All of the photos are available in seconds from our customer’s "Pet Information Page”. Thus if you are ever separated from your companion by events beyond your control you will always have at your finger tips the proof you will need to get your companion back with your family.

Last week, while we were talking about things as lofty as the Supreme
Court, and as bottom-feeding as Kim Kardashian, the FDA quietly put out
feeding bones to dogs. As in, it’s a big no-no.
This is a tough question; a really tough one for a great many of my clients. But it’s not rocket science, so here’s my simple prescription:
|Inconvenient euthanasia, embattled shelters,
and one especially tragic case to consider
Last Sunday I received a vituperative message lambasting my area’s municipal animal services division for euthanizing healthy pets. The message sender alleged that many pets never got a chance to receive a health and temperament test before they were summarily executed.
|Feline ID issues and the veterinarian's
Here’s the thing with the cats I treat: Only one in
ten wears a collar. Maybe half that number sport tags. Only one out of
every couple dozen cats bears a microchip. Now consider that I live in
Miami, where 75 percent of owned cats live a significant portion of
their lives out-of-doors, and you’ve got to wonder ... WHY?

Between The Miami Herald and USA Today, this topic seems to be my shtick for the week: Which holiday toxins make the grade, and which don’t quite pass the muster as poisons worth changing our habits over.
|How cold is too cold for our pets?
It's cold today in Miami. OK, maybe not according to the standards held by anyone who happens to live north of Florida, but chilly for us nonetheless. This is perhaps why we’re so weird about our pets and cold weather. We're just not used to it, so we get a tad freaky about it.
|Gratuitous animal book blogging
Yep, that's right. It's time for the Fully Vetted annual animal book roundup! Every year I try to offer you the best of the animal book genre, past and present.
