Dogs That Bite Other Dogs
I'm extra interested in this new study about dogs that bite other dogs. It looked at demographic details of the dogs that bite other dogs, the nature of those bites, and the impact of those bites (such as needing veterinary care). The study did not look into motivations or triggers. As Stanley Coren wrote in his recap of the study, "In other words, attempting to answer the questions who, what, and where, but not why."
Conditional Approval of Drug for Pancreatitis in Dogs
Breaking News !! Just in time for the 2022 holiday season, when dogs often accidentally get into rich foods and trigger an acute pancreatitis attack, the FDA gave conditional approval to Panoquell-CA1 for 1 year, with the option for 4 additional annual renewals. The drug meant for injection during hospitalization for cases of pancreatitis in dogs has been approved in Japan since 2018. It's made by Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha Ltd. Below, you'll find some FAQs about this new medication and canine pancreatitis in general.
Champion of My Heart Store Now Open
Barely in time for the holiday season, our Champion of My Heart store is now open. Suffice it to say the process turned into WAY more work than I ever imagined. It felt like this ... you too can launch an online store in just 1, 873,345 easy steps. I still need to do some things like personalizing all the notifications shoppers receive and other behind-the-scenes stuff that shouldn't affect your shopping experience, but it's up and running. Please let me know if you find any glitches. Here's a recap of what's in the new Champion of My Heart store, featuring 15 designs and more than 140 products (if you count all the clothes color options).
Dog Attack Restitution
Another chapter in the long, painful, lonely, and frustrating story of being attacked from behind by 2 aggressive dogs without warning comes to a close with the payment of dog attack restitution received this week. The attack happened nearly 1 year ago, the day before Thanksgiving 2021. That makes Thanksgiving 2022 the anniversary. Essentially, the holiday feels ruined. And, yet, the check arrived more than 6 months after it was ordered. The restitution process is convoluted and lengthy, with it not becoming official until like late July and then having a 91 day waiting / comment period (as if the month's prior didn't count) and then a letter going out demanding payment. Here's how all that feels today.
