It has been hot pretty much everywhere. So much so we feel our tails dragging when we have to go outside. Hope you are managing to keep cool in the heat. This week's news: Our first story deals with scams and warnings that can save you heartbreak in the future. Next is a health alert about pet turtles and salmonella risks. Then there is the story about the founding abbot behind the show "Divine Canine" passing away. It was the first we'd heard of him, and his story is quite interesting to read. Our final news item is about Fred, the undercover kitty who helped in exposing a fake veterinarian who had been operating on pets.

Our video of the week Spot the Telecom dog is a commercial from 'Down Under' that is almost a mini-movie.

Have a great week!

  • Need help for cat with CRF

    I have a 13 year old cat that was recently diagnosed with mild renal insufficiency. She was put on Hill K/D dry food. I originally had her on Eaglepack Holistic food. The only wet food she will eat is the Fancy feast canned food. And I was told that is not good for her since she has CRF. I eralize that the sodium and phosphorous content in the Hills food is low becasue of the CRF, but the phosphorous content in the Eaglepack food is only 0.9 % compared with Hills which is 0.3% Is that a big significance? Plus she throws up in a while on the Hills food, but NEVER on the Eagle Pack food!!

    Any comments??

    Thanks, Steve

My sister in California recommended your site to find a chiropractor who treats animals. I've already used you to find a great vet for my dogs, but I forgot that you have chiropractors too. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks. You're becoming a habit.

Your directory is great. I only have one complaint and that's many of the listings don't have enough information.

Help thy neighbor

My neighbor was bit by a stray rabid dog. I went to see how he was and found
him writing frantically on a piece of paper. I told him rabies could be treated,
and he didn't have to worry about a Will. He said, "Will? What Will? I'm making
a list of the people I want to bite."
