  • Pet food pantry helps animals in need
    Pam Tracy founded the Fort Wayne Pet Food Pantry in Indiana to help people keep their pets while struggling in a down economy. "I see patterns of people coming back after they stop coming for a while. They'll get a job, lose the job and then come back for more," she said. "I'm glad we’re there for them."

  • Emergencies associated with diabetes in pets
    Pets with diabetes can be managed long-term in most cases, writes veterinarian Laura Higgins, but even with proper care, some can suffer emergencies including hypoglycemic crisis, hyperglycemic hyperosmolar syndrome and diabetic ketoacidosis. The conditions can be treated, but their occurrence may indicate additional underlying disease. Berthoud Recorder (Colo.) (11/19) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Class teaches first aid for pets
    A two-and-a-half-hour class at the South County Recreation Center in Harwood, Md., teaches first aid for cats and dogs, including treatments for broken bones, heart failure and choking. "It's not long-term care in a situation -- just enough so that you can get to the vet," said instructor Laurie K. Scible. "And keep in mind that they don't have 911 to call for pets. We have to be the 911." The Baltimore Sun (11/25) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
