I don't subscribe to many magazines, in fact only four. Of course
they are all pet related. The Whole dog Journal is one of them and I
read it at the same pace as one of my dogs eats their dinner, without
taking breaths. Another of my favorites is actually a newsletter I subscribe to, Catnip.
Catnip is a paper newsletter and I think, shame on me, it comes out
monthly. Anyway, it is a product of The Cummings School of Veterinary
Medicine at Tufts University and if you are a cat owner you will find
it a valuable resource. In the April edition they have a great article
about Feline Life Stage Guidelines in terms of vaccinations, parasite
control, oral health and nutritional management. Catnip is making this guide available to everyone.
As the owner of a 20 year old white Persian cat I found it most informative. To access a copy of this PDF
click here or alternatively if you email me at NikiTudge@DogSmith.com I can email a copy to you.
To subscribe to Catnip you can call 800.829.0926 or email customer
service at email@example.com. I don't recall how much the
subscription is but it is not much and well worth the expense.

Spaying and Neutering Saves Lives
by Niki Tudge and Bethany Jordan CVT
Did you know that every year in the United States 70 million puppies
and kittens are born and an estimated 6 to 8 million of these will be
surrendered to shelters? Three to 4 million of these surrendered
animals are subsequently euthanized which equates to 5 out of 10 dogs
and 7 out of 10 cats. These animals generally come from puppy mills,
unwanted (oops) litters, un-spayed or un-neutered pet dogs and cats,
feral and free roaming cats, “backyard breeders,” and animals
surrendered because of behavioral or medical problems. And on average
only 10% of animals taken in to shelters have been spayed or neutered.
There are many myths surrounding spaying and neutering your pet including:
- Myth - Every female should have one litter before being spayed. Fact - There is no medical evidence to suggest any benefit to delaying spaying.
- Myth - Animals should be at least 6 months old before they are spayed or neutered. Fact - Early age spaying and neutering can be safely performed on young puppies and kittens.
- Myth - Only females need to be altered. Fact - A male can impregnate multiple females very quickly so to control pet overpopulation it is imperative to neuter male pets.
- Myth - Altering an animal will decrease its ability to perform in sports such as hunting or retrieving. Fact -
Studies prove that how an animal performs at a particular sport is
related to genetics and training, not the animals testosterone levels.
