Extractions: Spaying or neutering provides many health benefits and behavior benefits in addition to helping to reduce the overpopulation of pets. Surgically altering animals to control reproduction goes by many names, "neutering" and "spaying" being the two most common terms. Neutering involves the removal of both testicles from the male, and therefore the removal of sperm-producing tissues. Spaying involves the removal of the uterus and both ovaries from the female. Spayed females conceive and will not go through heat cycles after surgery. Why should I spay or neuter my pet? A great deal of attention should be paid to controlling unwanted pregnancies in our pets. Although everyone thinks puppies and kittens are cute, there are just too many of them. If we were to take care of all the homeless pets in this country, every man, woman and child would have to own seven pets, that's 28 pets for a family of four. Obviously, this is impossible. Unfortunately, many of these unwanted puppies and kittens end up abandoned and eventually die of starvation, suffer injuries and death from car accidents or are euthanized animal control facilities. Those who survive can be public health hazards, carrying diseases to other animals and even to people. Health benefits: In addition to preventing the birth of unwanted animals, spaying and neutering will help your pets live longer, healthier lives. There are many health benefits associated with these surgeries. Males, after neutering, have a reduction in the size of the prostate gland, which greatly decreases their risk of bacterial infections and prostate in later years. Males should be altered about one year of age in order to obtain the most health benefits.

Miscellaneous Written by: Unregistered Veterinarians are doctors who treat diseased and injured animals and give advice on how to care and breed healthy animals. The first veterinarian appeared around 2,500 B.C. in Babylon and China. There are two main types of vets. For example, there are large animal veterinarians that work with cows, horses, elephants, and numerous other large species. But there are also small animal veterinarians that work with smaller species, such as companion animals (pets). A veterinarians job is considered a good one because they usually make a good deal of money, especially if they own their own business. The average income of veterinarians in private practice was $57,500 in 1995. The starting salary of a veterinarian is somewhere around $23,000 per year nowadays. But veterinarians in more established careers make around $40,000-$60,000. But those who work for the federal government (meat inspectors) are considered to make less. Veterinarians also require much more education to be what they are. There are 27 colleges in 26 states that meet veterinary medicine accreditation standards. The required G.P.A. to get into a veterinary college is from a 2.5-3.2. Veterinarian students usually complete about a 4-5 year program in college. But some colleges require that students complete at least 2 years of general college. While in veterinary college students do laboratory work in anatomy, biochemistry, and other scientific and medical subjects. To become a full service veterinarian you have to acquire a D.V.M or a degree as a doctor of veterinary medicine. After you acquire a D.V.M. students must pass an examination from the state board of veterinarian licensing.
Extractions: CANADIAN DATA Introduction Although prior to 1945, dogs accounted for the majority of the cases of rabies in Canada, vaccination, animal control, and regulatory measures have reduced the incidence of rabies in dogs. Vaccines for dogs are currently available with one, two and three year label recommendations, while cats have one and three year rabies vaccines available. Despite the availability of vaccines providing longer term duration of immunity, many veterinarians in Canada continue to use the rabies vaccine on an annual basis, even when using triennial products. In some cases, there appears to be significant confusion as to regulatory requirements; in others, there may be a lack of confidence in triennial products being used according to label recommendations. Vaccine Use Across Canada -The Provinces Although the City of Halifax, with 35% of the population of Nova Scotia, previously requested annual revaccination in order for pet owners to receive a discount on pet licenses, the majority of practitioners in the province revaccinate triennially against rabies. Pets that are travelling may receive annual revaccination if proceeding to areas where vaccination against rabies is required annually by law.
Extractions: In its announcement NOAH called the plan another good step on the way to implementing the strategy for animal health and welfare, particularly in relation to farm animals.

Extractions: Monday, 20 August 2001 Governor signs bill at 10:00am, Tuesday, August 21 at PAWS Chicago The American Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals (ASPCA) applauds Governor George Ryan for signing SB 629 into law making Illinois the first state to mandate psychological counseling for companion animal hoarders. The legislation was supported and passed due to the efforts of Senator Larry Bomke and Representative Tom Dart. The ASPCA worked with Representative Tom Dart's office for over a year drafting and refining the legislation. "This is a historic day for Illinois animals and humane organizations," stated Ledy VanKavage, an attorney with The ASPCA's Midwest Government Affairs and Public Policy Office who spearheaded the lobbying effort to pass the Illinois bill. "This Act not only mandates psychological counseling for companion animal hoarders but it expands the tools police officers, humane societies and judges have to combat animal neglect and cruelty." Other items addressed in the bill include the following: Increasing the penalties for neglect, cruel treatment, aggravated cruelty, and animal torture. Animal neglect is raised to a Class B misdemeanor; cruel treatment becomes a Class A misdemeanor, aggravated cruelty becomes a Class 4 felony (1-3 years), animal torture becomes a Class 3 felony (3-5 years).
