Via a daily news brief of veterinary-related news, I learned of 12 dogs in Mooresville, North Carolina, who were put down after one of them — a puppy — contracted rabies. Many people were also exposed at a recent fish fry and are receiving treatment. The case raised a critical question: Is a current rabies vaccination “enough” to protect dogs exposed to rabies?
I’d always thought the answer was YES. Apparently, the reality is more complicated.
What started as a futon dog bed sensation in Scotland has become Tuffr Dog Beds made right here in Colorado. I met the Tuffr team at the American Animal Hospital Association veterinary conference earlier this year. These beds looked awesome for both home and professional use — veterinary hospitals, kennels, daycare, etc.
Evenings out are rare. Last Saturday, however, date night consisted of wine, tapas, and a painting class at Art on the Brix in downtown Golden, Colorado. So. Much. Fun. The results? Well … see for yourself.
Our friends at Be the Change for Animals have designated today, July 23, 2012, as “Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue.” We missed the chance to take part officially in the hoopla with a post on July 15, but we’re playing along anyway with news of a Shine a Light on a Shelter $10,000 grant for one lucky animal shelter / rescue group (from Purina ONE Beyond and GOOD magazine).
