The mostly do’s and some don’ts for bringing your newly adopted dog home

This time of year is really tough for animal shelters everywhere. The spring and summer months are when we see the highest number of animals coming into the shelter. So it’s common for us to host discounted or fee-waived adoption events throughout the summer to help us clear the shelter as much as possible to make room for the inevitable flow of animals arriving. A couple of weeks ago, we had a free adoption event on a Saturday afternoon. It was the first event of this nature we’ve had in more t...

Red Fox Population Rise and Fall

Red Fox populations in the UK are down due to rabbit and hare disease, but urban fox numbers are up because rats and trash are not impacted by rabbit and hare disease. What about hunting? Hunting has very little impact on red fox numbers anywhere, and that is especially true in the UK, where leghold and kill fox traps and poison have been banned. Hounds, terriers, lamping, and snares may reduce numbers over a few thousand acres, but will have little impact on national or even regional n...

E-Collars Are a Very Useful Tool, But Not a Fix-all

The message of ALL sides should be the same: Move to NEW tech, not ban ALL tech. Electric collars are easily demonized by know-nothings, but I also see an annoying -- and dangerous -- tendency for e-collar advocates to rise to every debate and think every argument has to be "won" as if it's some sort of wrestling match in which one side or the other has to be pinned.Success does not lie in that direction.  There is no "winning" Internet arguments, and besides the demonizers are not...

White-tail Deer Herds Have Caught Covid

As much as 40 percent of White-tail Deer have caught Covid-19.  It appears to have come from humans, they do not seem to die from it, and they develop antibodies. One-third of white-tailed deer in the north-eastern United States have antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 — a sign that they have been infected with the virus.  The findings, revealed by an analysis of samples collected after the pandemic began, represent the first detection of widespread exposure to the virus in a population of wild...

Here’s why you should adopt a pet from an animal rescue

When you’re looking to adopt a new furry, scaly, feathered and/or hooved companion, an animal rescue is a great choice. Rescues generally pull the most at-risk animals from shelters, the streets or from owners who can no longer take care of them and give those animals a better chance at a brighter future. Finding a rescue is as easy as Googling “dog/cat/this-very-specific-kind-of-pot-bellied-pig rescue,” but what’s the best way to sort through the 87 bazillion results you’ll get? “Reputable resc...

Irvine-based JustFoodForDogs wants to change the way your dog eats

It’s true, many dogs will eat whatever you put in front of them – and a lot of dogs will also help themselves to treats from the cat’s litter box or the neighbor’s yard. They might even eat your car keys. But that doesn’t mean what they’re eating is good for them. For serial entrepreneur Shawn Buckley of Newport Beach, an eye-opening trip to the pet store in 2009 to buy his dog a bag of kibble spawned a business idea that would change the way dogs eat. In 2010, Buckley launched JustFoodForDogs, ...

Scientists debate how and if animals talk to us – even if we understand them just fine

Move over Dr. Doolittle. After spending a year indoors with our pets, we might think we can talk with the animals better than ever before. We interpret certain barks as excitement, certain meows as anger. But what if our pets are actually trying to talk to us? Scroll through social media enough and you’ll come across an Instagram-famous dog named Stella. Why is she famous? Well, Stella’s owner, Christina Hunger, is a speech language pathologist and wondered whether she could teach her dog to tal...

Science-approved reasons why having a pet is good for you

We’ve all seen the bumper stickers, with a black-and-white pawprint, asking the age-old question, “Who rescued who?” We usually laugh them off, but what if they’re onto something? While it’s well known that animals can offer emotional support as well as service (when properly trained), there might be more to it. Recently, researchers have been looking more and more into the health benefits that come with animal companionship. These studies have spanned across the social sciences, medicine and an...

A hawk teaches a Banning falconer what matters in uncertain times

I did not want to bring a red-tailed hawk home, and I certainly did not want to nurse one back to health. It was April 17, 2020, and we were two weeks into the statewide shutdown. I wanted to respond to my friend’s text that I could do nothing to help, but we had just discovered that getting a hawk appropriate care was a longshot. Wildlife rehabilitators were unsure if allowing the public to drop off injured animals would bring COVID-19 into their facilities. No one was comfortable with stranger...

Are you stressing out your dog?

When humans make friends, we look for qualities such as loyalty, companionship and compassion. But what about man’s best friend? Since ancient times, humans domesticated mutts to hunt, herd and retrieve. These four-legged friends also make great companions. But how deeply do our furry friends empathize with us? A research team at Linköping University in Sweden wanted to investigate owner-dog relationships related to stress. They knew that individuals of the same species can mimic each other’s st...

Meet the neighborhood vet who keeps beloved horses healthy

Kirk Pollard, DVM, pulls up to a gray barn on an already hot Saturday morning. As he walks into the barn aisle, a shaggy white Percheron gelding sticks his head over the stall door, reaching to greet his familiar visitor. In a dulcet voice known to soothe equines and humans alike, the veterinarian greets his longtime patient. He runs a gentle and knowing hand along the draft horse’s speckled side, and the horse nuzzles him in return. Pollard, aka Dr. P, is the James Herriot of the equestrian com...

Why you should consider buying a purebred puppy

My Bumblebee is a pure joy. She’s 12 pounds of happy Tibetan spaniel who loves giving kisses, bouncing around me when I get home, and going on joy rides to play nose work, the sport we both love. She’s also the first purebred dog I’ve owned since I started adopting dogs 40 years ago. I know she is because, unlike my other dogs, she didn’t come from a shelter, rescue or the back yard of someone who didn’t want their dog. She wasn’t rescued. I bought her. I paid $800 to a breeder in Oregon and con...

The Apple Watch of 1560

Back before Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Google maps, instant weather, 7-time zones on your watch, and turn-by-turn directions, when you left the city for forest or sea you were more or less on your own.  In that kind of situation, this heat-shaped powder flask from 1560, was the “Apple Watch” if its day, with compass and sundial.  In the British Museum, and made in Austria or Germany.
