The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.Nitrogen Radioisotopes: Unstable isotopes of nitrogen that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. N atoms with atomic weights 12, 13, 16, 17, and 18 are radioactive nitrogen isotopes.Image Interpretation, Computer-Assisted: Methods developed to aid in the interpretation of ultrasound, radiographic images, etc., for diagnosis of disease.Dihydroxyphenylalanine: A beta-hydroxylated derivative of phenylalanine. The D-form of dihydroxyphenylalanine has less physiologic activity than the L-form and is commonly used experimentally to determine whether the pharmacological effects of LEVODOPA are stereospecific.Phantoms, Imaging: Devices or objects in various imaging techniques used to visualize or enhance visualization by simulating conditions encountered in the procedure. Phantoms are used very often in procedures employing or measuring x-irradiation or radioactive material to evaluate performance. Phantoms often have properties similar to human tissue. Water demonstrates absorbing properties similar to normal tissue, hence water-filled phantoms are used to map radiation levels. Phantoms are used also as teaching aids to simulate real conditions with x-ray or ultrasonic machines. (From Iturralde, Dictionary and Handbook of Nuclear Medicine and Clinical Imaging, 1990)Animals, Domestic: Animals which have become adapted through breeding in captivity to a life intimately associated with humans. They include animals domesticated by humans to live and breed in a tame condition on farms or ranches for economic reasons, including LIVESTOCK (specifically CATTLE; SHEEP; HORSES; etc.), POULTRY; and those raised or kept for pleasure and companionship, e.g., PETS; or specifically DOGS; CATS; etc.Brain: The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.Gallium Radioisotopes: Unstable isotopes of gallium that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Ga atoms with atomic weights 63-68, 70 and 72-76 are radioactive gallium isotopes.Whole-Body Counting: Measurement of radioactivity in the entire human body.Tissue Distribution: Accumulation of a drug or chemical substance in various organs (including those not relevant to its pharmacologic or therapeutic action). This distribution depends on the blood flow or perfusion rate of the organ, the ability of the drug to penetrate organ membranes, tissue specificity, protein binding. The distribution is usually expressed as tissue to plasma ratios.Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.Image Enhancement: Improvement of the quality of a picture by various techniques, including computer processing, digital filtering, echocardiographic techniques, light and ultrastructural MICROSCOPY, fluorescence spectrometry and microscopy, scintigraphy, and in vitro image processing at the molecular level.Dideoxynucleosides: Nucleosides that have two hydroxy groups removed from the sugar moiety. The majority of these compounds have broad-spectrum antiretroviral activity due to their action as antimetabolites. The nucleosides are phosphorylated intracellularly to their 5'-triphosphates and act as chain-terminating inhibitors of viral reverse transcription.Artifacts: Any visible result of a procedure which is caused by the procedure itself and not by the entity being analyzed. Common examples include histological structures introduced by tissue processing, radiographic images of structures that are not naturally present in living tissue, and products of chemical reactions that occur during analysis.Nuclear Medicine: A specialty field of radiology concerned with diagnostic, therapeutic, and investigative use of radioactive compounds in a pharmaceutical form.Deoxyglucose: 2-Deoxy-D-arabino-hexose.

Rb atoms with atomic weights 79-84, and 86-95 are radioactive rubidium isotopes.Tomography, Emission-Computed, Single-Photon: A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.ThiosemicarbazonesIsotope Labeling: Techniques for labeling a substance with a stable or radioactive isotope. It is not used for articles involving labeled substances unless the methods of labeling are substantively discussed. Tracers that may be labeled include chemical substances, cells, or microorganisms.Lutetium: Lutetium. An element of the rare earth family of metals.

Molecular identification and epidemiological tracing of Pasteurella multocida meningitis in a baby. (1/67)

We report a case of Pasteurella multocida meningitis in a 1-month-old baby exposed to close contact with two dogs and a cat but without any known history of injury by these animals. 16S rRNA gene sequencing of the isolate from the baby allowed identification at the subspecies level and pointed to the cat as a possible source of infection. Molecular typing of Pasteurella isolates from the animals, from the baby, and from unrelated animals clearly confirmed that the cat harbored the same P. multocida subsp. septica strain on its tonsils as the one isolated from the cerebrospinal fluid of the baby. This case stresses the necessity of informing susceptible hosts at risk of contracting zoonotic agents about some basic hygiene rules when keeping pets. In addition, this study illustrates the usefulness of molecular methods for identification and epidemiological tracing of Pasteurella isolates.  (+info)

Two cases of tinea corporis by infection from a rabbit with Arthroderma benhamiae. (2/67)

The first cases of tinea corporis with Arthroderma benhamiae in Japan are reported. A 7-year-old girl and a 30-year-old mother in Shimane prefecture suffered from dermatophyte infections on the neck, shoulder, arms and leg. Three isolates from the two patients and a rabbit by which they supposedly were infected, were identified as Trichophyton mentagrophytes. On the bases of mating tests using the tester strains of both the African race and the Americano-European race of A. benhamiae, they were identified as A. benhamiae African race mating type (-). Our results are the first to indicate that both races of A. benhamiae exist in Japan.  (+info)

The use of seizure-alert dogs. (3/67)

We report our experience of training dogs to assist people with epilepsy by providing a useful warning of seizures. An unexpected finding has been that human subjects report an improvement in seizure rate. This may be related to increased confidence and activity levels. We have observed some hazards associated with untrained dogs, which raises questions about future experimental design. We plan further research to test our method and assess outcomes more formally. Recent changes in UK quarantine law provide an opportunity for further international collaboration.  (+info)

Development of the human-research animal bond and its impact on animal well-being. (4/67)

For millennia, relationships have developed between animals and people through the context of work, sport, companionship, or some combination of these activities. Often, a bond between animal and human results, which is based on affection and/or respect. In the research environment, it is not uncommon for a bond to develop between the investigator, veterinarian, and/or animal care technicians and the animals with which they work; and such a bond can be just as strong for a mouse as it is for a dog. Circumstances that foster the formation of these bonds include the close and frequent contact between the researchers and their animals during studies or during training of animals to particular tasks, the long periods of time many research animals live in the facilities (often years), the dependency of the animals on the animal care staff for their daily needs, and the veterinarian/patient relationship, which is not unlike that of private practitioners and client-owned animals. In addition, overlaying the fundamental relationship with the research animal are special bonds that can form with certain animals. Among those that engender a special attachment are animals that are particularly friendly, amusing, or intelligent; animals requiring extra supportive care; animals that show courage; animals that represent a milestone in a particular scientific advancement; and animals that reflect humans' own strengths and foibles. The development of these relationships is enriching to both personnel and animals inasmuch as people who care about their animals are committed to promoting and ensuring the well-being of those animals.  (+info)

Human-animal bonds in the laboratory: how animal behavior affects the perspectives of caregivers. (5/67)

Experiencing the human-animal bond in the laboratory context can potentially improve the quality of life of animals as well as increase job satisfaction for animal caregivers. With today s centralized facilities, caregivers generally focus entirely on providing routine care for animals without involvement in experimental procedures. Results of responses to a detailed and open-ended survey of 16 caregivers and five campus veterinarians at seven University of California campuses are presented, in addition to six interviews of additional caregivers and veterinarians. The survey revealed that these individuals became caregivers because of their attraction to the animals. Positive interactions with the animals were highly rewarding. Approximately half of the caregivers reported feeling less attracted to mice than other species. Job satisfaction could perhaps be increased by offering seminars for the research team that would include the caregivers and providing support related to animal deaths and euthanasia.  (+info)

Ethical aspects of relationships between humans and research animals. (6/67)

People who work in biomedical and behavioral research settings sometimes form strong relationships with individual laboratory animals. Ethnographic studies indicate that it is common for these individuals to transform some animals from experimental subject to pet. Although theories of ethics that emphasize impartiality and justice have little to say about the moral implications of human-research animal bonds, caring-based ethical systems acknowledge the moral consequences and resulting psychological burdens of these relationships. Typically, albeit not always, animal care staff are more likely than researchers to experience the moral ambivalence associated with human-laboratory animal bonds. These bonds can result in conflict between technicians and investigators. Several ways that research institutions can help individuals cope with the ethical consequences of relationships with research animals include supporting the development of human-animal relationships in laboratories, giving animal care personnel an ethical voice through involvement in the institutional animal care and use committee decision process, publicly acknowledging the emotional and moral costs of human-laboratory animal relationships, and educating animal care staff about the purpose and possible benefits of research projects.  (+info)

Ethical implications of the human-animal bond in the laboratory. (7/67)

This analysis of the moral implications of a human-animal bond in a research setting begins by describing a set of criteria that delineate the human-animal bond in general and form the foundation on which moral issues rest. Questions about if, when, and how such bonds are formed are discussed briefly; the discussion focuses on how the concept of a human-animal bond fits into standard moral theories. The conclusion is that impartial theories such as utilitarianism and deontological theories must be supplemented with an ethics of caring and that the moral duties engendered by the human-animal bond are best identified with such a supplemented theory.  (+info)

An additional "R": remembering the animals. (8/67)

Relationships inevitably develop between humans and animals, regardless of the function or use of the animal partners. The need to recognize the existence of these human-animal bonds, as well as acknowledge the use of the animals, is widespread. Religious memorial services for animals in certain areas of the world provide an historical basis for such acknowledgment activities. The diversity of sacred and secular approaches to memorializing or acknowledging animals is illustrated by representative examples of such events. The need to establish such events, particularly in academic and research settings, is emphasized. The pros and cons of developing and establishing acknowledgment activities in addition to the benefits of implementing such events are discussed.  (+info)

The human-animal bond encompasses a wide range of emotional, physical and physiological effects induced by close, especially long-term, close interaction between a human and an animal. Considering it "a mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals that is influenced by behaviors that are essential to the health and well-being of both," the American Veterinary Medical Association established a committee that develops policies, for veterinarians and the human companions of the animals, to encourage its benefits.[1] This bond is best known with companion animals, but there can be close bonds, for example, between zoo animals and the staff that work with them, and, to a lesser extent, between wild and semi-tame animals and humans when their territories cross. The bond can extend beyond death. The best known example in the Western Hemisphere is probably that of Greyfriars Bobby, a Skye Terrier. Bobby guarded his owners grave for fourteen years, until his own death. Bobby ...

Changes in the socialisation period. We know socialisation plays an important role for dogs, and it seems the same is the case in foxes. There is a sensitive period of socialisation in post-natal development.. Is clear is that the domestication process in foxes has resulted in a different, extended socialisation period. Firstly, they respond to sound two days earlier (and open their ears quicker) and open their eyes one day earlier (and also open their eyes quicker) than unselected foxes. The socialisation period of the domedicated fox closes 3 weeks later than non-domesticated lines (i.e. the unselected foxes have a socialisation period of 40-45 days, while unselected foxes have a socialisation period of 60-65 days). Domesticated foxes have accelerated maturation intitially, and then this is retarded. This means that foxes have an extended window, which allows them to learn more about human ways and how to respond to them.. Belyaev experimented with fox cubs from domesticated lines and lines ...

Although noncommunicable diseases have caused a considerable burden on public health worldwide, infectious and parasitic diseases are still responsible for an unfathomable impact on human and animal health. Moreover, with the advent of molecular biology, new infectious and parasitic diseases are continuously being discovered, and emerging zoonoses are being identified. To address this complex scenario in toto, a holistic and multifaceted approach is required. This brings us to the concept of "One Health Medicine", which is the order of the day in the field of public health. This concept invites public health professionals, human health and veterinary clinicians to adopt a global approach when dealing with health risks resulting from human-animal interactions. The book "Human-Animal Medicine, Clinical Approaches to Zoonoses, Toxicants and Other Shared Health Risks" comes to consolidate this approach, in practice.. The book is organized into 14 chapters authored by one or more of 23 contributors. ...
Advances in genetic engineering have generally caused a large amount of debates and discussion in the fields related to bioethics, and research relating to the hypothetical creation of human-animal hybrids in the future has been no exception. The technical analyses of intermingling human-based and animal-based genetic material are ongoing; the ethical, moral, and legal issues arising from actual research using chimeras (rather than hybrids per se) at the moment also touch more speculative concerns as well. While laws against the creation of hybrid beings have been proposed in U.S. states and in the U.S. Congress, several scientists have argued that legal barriers might go too far and prohibit medically beneficial studies into human modification.[2][4][8] Although the two topics are not strictly related, the debates involving the creation of human-animal hybrids have paralleled that of the debates around the stem-cell research controversy.[2] The question of what line exists between a human ...
Researchers first grew human embryonic stem cells in the lab in 1998, and policy on stem cells and human-animal chimeras followed two years later.. In August 2000, under President Bill Clinton, the NIH published a final rule that prohibited funding "[r]esearch in which human pluripotent stem cells are combined with an animal embryo," along with providing the first guidelines for the kind of stem cell research that the agency would fund.. Since scientists hadnt yet developed induced pluripotent stem cells, this rule only applied to embryonic stem cells.. On Aug. 9, 2001, President George W. Bush limited the scope of stem cell research that could be federally funded to experiments using embryonic stem cell lines that had been derived prior to that day, among other limitations.. In November 2001, his administration also revoked the 2000 rule. But an NIH spokesperson told us, "The policy that was in place under President Bush did not address human-animal chimeras specifically, and therefore did not ...
Jack wears two devices on his body at all times to monitor and maintain his blood sugar levels. Mom and dad track it through an app on their phone. Plus a finger prick blood test is necessary at least 15 times throughout the day. The risk of running too low or too high can be deadly. Every night when we say goodnight to him, we dont know if well say good morning, Jill explained through tears. The nighttime is the scariest time for Type 1s because things can change so quickly. The Cafferys are not alone in this fear. Jody Filonovich, a dog trainer with Dogworks Service Dogs in Rochester can attest. Thats because her career is centered around training Diabetic Alert Dogs, or DADs, for families just like Jacks.. The dogs purpose is to be another blood sugar monitor. Dogs have the ability to scent that and be preemptive as well, Filonovich explained. So as someone is trending downward, that literally is coming systemically out of their body. These dogs in the program go through ...
Service dogs for people with diabetes are the tattletales of the dog world, according to Rita Martinez, co-author of a new book, Training Your Diabetic Alert Dog.
A diabetic alert dog is an assistance dog trained to detect high (hyperglycemia) or low (hypoglycemia) levels of blood sugar in humans with diabetes and alert their owners to dangerous changes in blood glucose levels. This allows their owners to take steps to return their blood sugar to normal, such as using glucose tablets, sugar and carbohydrate rich food. The dog can prompt a human to take insulin. When owners with diabetes begin to experience hypoglycemia, the detection dogs perform a predetermined task (e.g. bark, lay down, sit) to inform the person. Dogs may be directly smelling something related to the abnormal glucose concentration, or may be reacting to the owners symptoms which are caused by hypoglycemia, such as sweating or shaking. The first dog trained to detect hypoglycemia was a Californian dog called Armstrong in 2003. In 2009, a dog named Tinker from Durham City became the first British assistance dog to be officially registered for a type 2 diabetic owner. He was able to give ...

Fifty-eight percent of pet owners - 63 percent of dog owners and 53 percent of cat owners - would be at least somewhat likely to perform CPR on their pet in the event of a medical emergency, according to an Associated Press-Petside.com poll. Just 20 percent of pet owners have a pet first aid kit with medical supplies like bandages and ointment in their home, and 54 percent do not have a fire evacuation plan for their pets. Sixty-two percent of dog owners and a third of cat owners let their pets ride in their cars unrestrained, rather than placing them in a special pet carrier.

An Orange County elementary school must allow a 7-year-old boy who suffers from severe autism to bring his service dog to school, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.. Parents of the boy -- who doesnt speak, frequently gets anxious and has pinched and scratched others -- sued the Cypress School District, claiming their son was being discriminated against for his disability when officials refused to allow him to bring his service dog.. The dog, Eddy, was trained for two years, beginning when he was 8 weeks old, to help the boy from wandering off and to detect his mood and intervene if he starts feeling anxious.. The school district had argued that Eddy does not qualify as a service dog under federal statutes, and that his presence could disrupt school activities and be burdensome for staff.. Judge Andrew Guilford granted a preliminary injunction in favor of the student, identified as C.C. in court papers, finding that keeping the boy and the dog apart during school hours could diminish their bond and ...
Service dogs have been known to sooth some children with severe autism. Parents of children with autism are beginning to seek service dogs for help. Amy Hoffman and her family have been working hard to raise $13,000. This is the amount that they will need to have a service dog trained for their son, Eiji.. At just four years old, Eiji suffers from regular seizures. The Hoffmann family has joined forces with an Ohio non-profit called 4 Paws for Ability. They have raised about $6,000 thus far - which is half is what they needed.. During this time, their other son, 2-year-old Kai, has also been diagnosed with autism. As if this wasnt enough, their townhome in Woodbridge has been broken into. Needless to say, this has been quite a difficult time for the Hoffman family.. Amy was unaware that FOX 5 wouldnt be her only visitor on Thursday. A surprise was also on the way.. Joel Bassam of Easterns Automotive Group had just made a deposit of $6,915 to the Hoffmans fundraising account. This amount is ...
First, while there is good research showing the benefits of service assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities, there is little evidence for the use of service assistance dogs, let alone emotional support dogs, in mental illness. How are service dogs and emotional support dogs different? Service dogs are trained intensively by professionals for many months to perform specific tasks for people with disabilities. For example, trainers teach service dogs to open doors and turn on lights for people with physical disabilities. The dogs might serve as ears for hearing-impaired people or as eyes for someone who is visually impaired. Service dogs also can be trained as skilled companions for people with intellectual disabilities or mental illness. By contrast, an emotional support dog is not trained to do any specific tasks related to a disability, but rather provides a therapeutic benefit to its owner through companionship ...
Most pet owners do all they can to protect the health of their beloved pet. As dogs and cats grow older, keeping them healthy and strong becomes more of a challenge. One of the biggest issues older dogs and cats face is joint issues. When the joints do not have ample cartilage, fluid movements become difficult and discomfort can follow. No pet owner wants to see their pet lying around simply because they do not feel comfortable while walking, running, and playing. Thankfully, there are pet supplements that can ease discomfort and promote healthier joints. It is important a pet owner knows what to look for in a joint supplement so they can make sure they make the right purchase:. ...
Note: For more detailed information on blood glucose sniffing dogs, read our article diabetic alert dogs.. Dogs are used to sniff out drugs in bags, so why not dogs that can sniff your blood glucose levels? While this may sound far-fetched to some, there are service dogs that are trained to do just that.. I found an lovely, inspiring story of a 12 years old girl called Hunter, and her German Shepherd service dog called Diva.. The idea behind these animals is that they can detect small changes in the scent of the childs breath, which can often smell fruity when blood sugar levels are high. The dog is a constant companion to the child, with a very strong bond between the two. Several times during the night, Diva will get up and smell Hunter to detect signs of high or low blood sugar levels. If there is a problem, the dogs goes into alert mode, which has even been known to include taking the glucose testing kit to Hunters parents.. Source: Blood Glucose Sniffing Dogs.

Humans and animals are in regular and at times close contact in modern intensive farming systems. The quality of human-animal interactions can have a profound impact on the productivity and welfare of farm animals. Interactions by humans may be neutral, positive or negative in nature. Regular pleasant contact with humans may result in desirable alterations in the physiology, behaviour, health and productivity of farm animals. On the contrary, animals that were subjected to aversive human contact were highly fearful of humans and their growth and reproductive performance could be compromised. Farm animals are particularly sensitive to human stimulation that occurs early in life, while many systems of the animals are still developing. This may have long-lasting impact and could possibly modify their genetic potential. The question as to how human contact can have a positive impact on responses to stressors, and productivity is not well understood. Recent work in our laboratory suggested that pleasant
The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) is considering lifting a ban on the funding of research to human-animal chimeras and replacing it with an ethical review process. If agreed, the move could result in the creation of animal-chimera embryos for research in the USA.. Guidelines produced in 2009 by the NIH currently prohibit the use of federal funds for research involving the insertion of human pluripotent stem cells into nonhuman primate blastocysts. Researchers are also not allowed to breed animals that have had human stem cells inserted into their germline.. The NIH extended the ban in 2015, imposing a funding moratorium on such research involving pre-blastocyst stage embryos prior to gastrulation (when the three germ layers start to appear), and applying this restriction to all animal embryos. The decision put on hold research to create sheep-human or pig-human chimera embryos to generate organs, explains Science - although no such funding applications had yet been received.. The ...
The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is pleased that the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) is considering an end to the moratorium on NIH funding of human-animal chimera research involving the introduction of human pluripotent cells into early stage animal embryos (NIH Notice, 8-4-16).. "Historically, the study of animal models containing human cells has produced valuable insights into human biology and disease," said ISSCR president Sally Temple. "Research using chimeras can be transformative," she said. "Scientists will be able to gain new understandings of human development, generate disease models that can be studied and tested, and potentially develop human organs that can be used for transplantation. We are confident that rigorous, responsibly-monitored research in this area will lead to great advances in science, and to developments for the field of regenerative medicine," she said.. The NIH proposal defines a stringent review process for studies that ...

The NIH action was triggered after it learned that scientists had begun such experiments with support from other funding sources, including from Californias state stem-cell agency. The human-animal mixtures are being created by injecting human stem cells into days-old animal embryos, then gestating these in female livestock. Because chimeras could provide a new supply of organs for needy patients and also lead to basic discoveries, researchers including Garry say they intend to press forward despite the NIH position. In November, he was one of 11 authors who published a letter criticizing the agency for creating "a threat to progress" that "casts a shadow of negativity" on their work ...
Human-Animal Studies Conference - 7-9 August 2018 Turku, Finland. The Finnish Society for Human-Animal Studies (YKES) is proud to organize the first international Human-Animal Studies conference held in Finland.. Keynote speakers are Erica Fudge (University of Strathclyde), Jamie Lorimer (University of Oxford) and Helena Telkänranta (University of Bristol and University of Helsinki). The deadline for abstracts: February 28, 2018.. Conference website: https://uncommonworlds.wordpress.com/. Conference call:. Humans and other animals share spaces and create communities together. They touch each other in various symbolic and material ways, constantly crossing and redrawing communal, ethical and very practical boundaries. As of late, this multifarious renegotiation of human-animal relations has sparked intense debates both in the public arena and in academia.. For instance, Bruno Latour argues that the anthropocene (marking the massive human impact on ecosystems) creates a new territory in which ...
Human-animal hybrids have existed only in our imagination fueled by vivid mythological creatures, most popular being the mermaids and the centaurs. So when scientists showed an active interest in mixing human and animal genes, mainly to mass produce vital hormones like insulin, and drugs and organs suitable for organ transplantations, it was interpreted widely as an attempt to create monsters which could be half-human-half-animal. Thus the term Para-human became popular as an informal reference ...
Regulators are Often Rubber Stamps: The UK Embryo Authority has rarely, if ever, said no to scientific experiments. And if they appear ready to disapprove, the scientists merely start yelling and the regulators quickly fold. We saw that with the request to engage in human SCNT cloning in the UK using animal eggs. Why would the human-animal DNA regulatory authority be any different? In the USA, most regulations over embryonic manipulations deal with government funding, rather than what can be done legally. Moreover, these regulations are usually tighter than "expert" advisory bodies want ...

Talking with Shannon is like talking to an angel. She has a gentle, peaceful energy, and a soft voice that reminds me of honey on a biscuit. You want to pull up a chair, have a cup of tea, and enjoy time in her presence.. Many people have enjoyed being in Shannons company, especially those shes comforted in her work as a hospital chaplain. But when Shannon needed comforting, it didnt seem like anyone could reach her through the pain and sadness.. She says, "After I became ill, I went into this deep depression. I wondered why God had left me…Here I was a chaplain, working at church, the hospital, helping others, doing His work, and then I got sick. I couldnt understand it.

Doberman Pinschers are often stereotyped as being ferocious and aggressive. As a personal protection dog, the Doberman was originally bred for these traits - it had to be large and intimidating, fearless, and willing to defend its owner, but sufficiently obedient and restrained to only do so on command. These traits served the dog well in its role as a personal defence dog, police dog, or war dog, but were not ideally adapted to a companionship role. The Doberman Pinschers aggression has been toned down by modern breeders over the years, and todays Dobermans are known for a much more even and good natured temperament, extreme loyalty, high intelligence, lots of energy and suitability for companionship and family life. They are loving, affectionate and dedicated to their families. Determined, bold and assertive while working, they are very adaptable, highly skilled and ...
Now, one day, as Hurmanetar sat beneath a tree, enjoying its shade at the height of noon, he saw a stranger approaching. The man was weary and staggered, so Hurmanetar sent his servant to bring him into the shade. The servant hastened out and brought him in.

Lloyd and Joy didnt have the common problems of their counterparts in Neanderthal Companionship Counseling, such as: miscommunication, overly aggressive behavior, and depression due to questioning the purpose of existence.. Lloyd and Joys problem was their difference in size.. The average male and female Neanderthals were about the same height and weight. However it is my theory, according to the skeletal structures found, that Lloyd was severely petite and Joy was much larger than the average Neanderthal. We at the Neanderthal Reenactment and Study call her "Mammoth Joy.". The role-of-dominance portion of the Neanderthal Companionship Counseling might have been embarrassing for Lloyd. The females were asked by the counseling director to lie on their backs on the ground and allow their male companions to drag them ten to fifteen feet by the clumps of hair on their heads. Each would have been successful at doing so, the women giving off their trained howls and hoots of submissive trust. But I ...

However, not all individuals exhibit the same compositional response to weight changes induced by energy deficit or surfeit. Generally speaking, thin individuals lose proportionally more LBM and less fat during weight reduction than do obese individuals. This is why obese people have a greater tolerance for fasting. Likewise, thin people tend to gain a larger proportion of lean in response to high-energy diets with adequate protein content than do those who are obese. While the evidence for the companionship concept has been adduced from studies of adolescents and adults, it is entirely reasonable to assume that it pertains also to infants and children. Certainly, recovery from infant and childhood malnutrition involves an increase in both LBM and fat. The companionship rule also applies to established states of under- and overnutrition. The vast majority of obese individuals, children and adults alike, have a supranormal LBM, which constitutes a quarter to a third of their excess weight. ...

The other two types of pet trusts, the Freestanding Pet Protection Agreement® pet trust and the freestanding pet trust, are not created by a will. They stand alone and are legally enforceable when signed by the pet owner and the pet guardian. These trusts offer the advantage of covering all animals owned by the pet owner, both present and future, and can be valid during the pet owners lifetime, during any disability, and after the pet owners death.. The freestanding pet trust requires an attorney, a trustee, and funds to be set aside. It may name a trust protector. The Freestanding Pet Protection Agreement® pet trust is designed to offer the best features of a trust, a contract, and a will, without their disadvantages. As a freestanding trust, funds pass outside of probate. There is no approval needed by a judge. Like a contract, it includes consideration and acceptance and survives legislative edict. Like a will, it can disburse property upon the death of the pet owner. A pet owner can make ...
Tick season is something every dog owner should be mindful of. Be sure to check your best friend after every walk through an area where ticks live.
Kelsey Jackson, [email protected], (573) 882-8353 COLUMBIA, Mo. - Despite being red-green colorblind, the eyes of service dogs are often their greatest assets. When eye problems arise, it is not only bad for them, but also creates complications for the people they assist. Ophthalmologists from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine will participate in the National Service Dog Eye Exam Day by giving free eye exams on May 21 and 28 to service dogs. They will check for eye afflictions similar to those that occur in humans, such as cataracts, glaucoma, pink eye, tumors, eyelid abscesses, inflammation, in-growing eyelids and injuries. They hope to diagnose these eye problems early, so they can potentially extend the time the service dogs are able to serve while improving their quality of life.. "If we do identify an ocular condition in one of these service animals, we may be able to extend the service time of the dog by giving the owners knowledge about the disease and ...
In this weeks poll, we will try to bring to our consciousness a topic that can possibly add another dimension of happiness into ones life. Nurturing and enjoying a pet.. As with any topic we cover, there will always be a diversity of opinions based on each persons experiences.

For the first 83% of my life to date, I did not have a pet in my household. Then one Christmas nearly a decade ago, we purchased a puppy for our kids. Its safe to say that most kids enjoy the positives of pet ownership without wanting the responsibilities of care taking. Pet responsibilities for conscientious owners are similar to the responsibilities of rearing small children. They are dependent on their owners for lots of care.. However, from my own family experience, my wife and I have found the caretaking responsibilities to be a ...

Yep. I said it. Ive been keeping quiet about this for years, and cant do it anymore. Its the ugly side of dog training and dog rescue/sheltering, the controversial side that I havent been avoiding so much as Ive been doing this: simply getting in and helping people with their dogs.. Long post warning!. Every year, we work with a small number of clients who have been told by a behaviorist (usually well known, advanced degree type OR a veterinary behaviorist) that their dog cannot be helped, and should be euthanized. Sometimes, they have been told this by another trainer, who is not a behaviorist. And often, this is because that behaviorist/trainer is wedded to what I consider to be an extremist point of view on how dogs can be helped. They will tell you that science has determined that only certain types of training work with dogs, and that if those types of training havent worked, then there is no hope. And that a dog is better off DEAD, than to go to a trainer who might not use the exact ...
There are several medical issues that can interfere with potty training. Dogs with a urinary tract infection (UTI) will urinate frequently in small amounts, and will not have much control. You may also notice excessive licking of their genital region. If you notice a change in the consistency of their stool, the cause could be a gastrointestinal issue. Some common causes in puppies are intestinal parasites, having eaten something not in their normal diet, or a sudden food change. If a food change is necessary, do it gradually over 5 to 7 days. If you suspect any of these issues could be a problem, you should consult with your veterinarian.[19 ...
Setting aside our natural human tendency to be fair, Maggie has decided that Lola is the dominant dog and will be treated accordingly. The main aim is to restore peace and harmony to the household, so Tilley takes a step down to remove friction between the dogs.. I advised Maggie that whenever she is feeding the dogs, Lola is to be fed first and separately from Tilley to avoid any aggression surfacing over food and Lola should receive treats first. When going out for a walk, Lolas lead should be clipped on first and although they may be walked together, they should also be taken out on their own regularly, to avoid them forming a pack and Tilley backing up Lola when she is aggressive to other dogs. Dogs that are always exercised together, in my experience, tend to develop at slower speeds and in different ways. Their characters seem to be affected and the abilities of the lower ranking dog, in this case Tilley, seems to blunt her ability to make decisions. I have noticed this particularly in ...

The concept of a "kissing booth" as a fundraising attraction at a carnival or some other event is not new. However, doggy kissing booths, where a person pays to give a kiss or hug to a dog or to get a kiss from a dog, is a relatively new trend. As a dog lover and Certified Dog Behavior Consultant, I find the idea of a doggy kissing booth very disturbing. When I privately shared this concern with a group organizing a fundraising event for a local dog park, the leader of the group publically labeled me a "jerk" on the groups Facebook page. If caring for the wellbeing and safety of dogs and people makes me a "jerk," then I will gladly wear that badge with honor.. So, why am I opposed to dogs being put on display at a doggie kissing booth? The answer is quite simple. Unlike people dogs do not enjoy being kissed and hugged. Any qualified dog behavior consultant will tell you the same thing. In fact, kissing and hugging a dog, even by a child in its family, is often what initiates a dog bite. Putting ...
The Service Dog handler hears MANY dog stories every day. A single trip to a large store means up 15 dog stories per hour and hearing "dog" up to 100 times per hour.-(my own actual stats kept from years of trying to go out and live my life). Can we stand another dog story? Yes, but try to make it a happy one instead of telling us about the dog that just got run over, or looked exactly like ours and had to be put down. Its interesting to us that your cousins best friend has a service dog but we dont necessarily need comparisons such as: "I know most people who have service dogs are blind and you are not blind-are you?-so that means you probably dont need your dog as much as well, if you were actually blind..

I went out and bought a Service Dog vest so he could go on vacation with me.": UGH! Thanks for letting me know you are making my life more difficult by bringing ...

I have a two year-old female Boxer named Amber and a six year-old female St. Bernard named Crystal. My question is regarding the Boxer, Amber. Whenever my husband and I sit down to eat dinner, watch TV, or when company comes over, she incessantly barks at us. She doesnt want to play with her toys and nothing can distract her from this barking. We try to correct her in a deep tone, but she only gets crazier; i.e.. jumping up, biting our clothes. From reading your book, it seems that she needs a motivational correction, such as her training collar. As of now, we do not leave it on her, except for when she is being walked. Should she be wearing the collar when we are home and shes in the house at all times? Can you please make any suggestions to correct this behavior so when we want to relax or have guests over, its pleasant. She gets plenty of exercise and tons of attention. Im not sure what to do.

5 Tips for Caring for Senior Dogs. Weve had so many, our place resembles a canine geriatric home. Heres what weve learned.. Kate OBrien. We have had a senior dog household since 2003, when our chocolate Lab, Sally, turned eight. At the time we had another dog, Tino, who was just a year younger. Tino and Sally have passed within the past few years, and weve debated whether we should adopt a puppy, a young adult, or a senior to add to our family. Weve opted for seniors.. The first senior we adopted was Becca. She was a beautiful black Lab and an owner-surrendered service dog. She was 10 years of age, and given that our other dog, Tino, was blind, we thought Beccas calm demeanor and near-perfect service dog behavior would be well suited for him.
