Remember to shop through PetGive.com

It's Black Friday, the start of a big shopping weekend...and Monday is Cyber Monday, when many online retailers will offer special deals and savings. Remember to do all of your online shopping through PetGive.com. Go to that URL first and from there shop at all of your favorite online stores...and donate a portion of your purchase costs to the pet charity of your choice!

I just did it myself...I bought some items at Drugstore.com through PetGive.com and a donation went to Farm Sanctuary, a great organization that rescues abused farm animals.

Pets' diseases often a long time coming

By Jeff Kahler

Is there really such a thing as sudden disease?

I suppose the answer relies at least partially on one's definition. When I discuss disease, I think of a process or processes that have gone awry within the body. I envision these diseases manifesting in a less-than-sudden manner. I distinguish this from terms such as sudden illness.
For example, if your pet ingests a toxin or is struck by a car, that's sudden. Sometimes, as caretakers, we perceive a change in our pet's health as sudden or acute when in reality this may not be the case.

Great day for animals!!!

Massachusetts voters passed Question 3, which phases out greyhound racing by 2010 at the few remaining Massachusetts racetracks. YAY!!!!!!!

California voters passed Proposition 2 by a resounding margin (62% to 38% as of this time). As a result, 20 million animals in California will soon be spared the worst abuses of factory farms. YAY!!!!!!!

And if you're in Massachusetts, don't forget to vote to abolish greyhound racing!
