ACTOR KEN WAHL HELPS CATS HELP VETERANS

Ken-Wahl-with-PreciousKen Wahl may be best known for his role in the ‘90’s cult cop drama Wiseguy, but now he’s an activist helping veterans cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by pairing them with shelter pets.
After a neck and spine injury caused Wahl to retire from acting in 1995, he says his cats helped lift his depression.

In a recent Parade.com article, Wahl says that injury, chronic pain and the depression that often accompanies it can be debilitating. “That’s where caring for an animal comes in. You have to take care of that animal.

With my injury, I wasn’t able to contribute. I felt like a complete burden, [but] the animals around me—especially my kitties—needed me to feed them, to clean their box. While I was taking care of them, they were taking care of me.”

ASK-THE-VET: IS CAMPHOR HARMFUL TO DOGS?

DrDonnaSpector-Morgan2011_250wQuestion: Is the odor of camphor tablet for repelling mosquito harmful or toxic for the dogs?

Answer: Thanks for writing in. Here is what the ASPCA has to say about camphor: Essential oils such as camphor and eucalyptus have the potential to produce gastrointestinal upset and central nervous system depression if ingested.

If these products are aspirated or inhaled in large enough quantities, respiratory irritation and pneumonia could result.

Hope this helps.

RESCUE CAT IS NEW OWNER’S HIKING PARTNER

cat-manEveryone knows that cats like to climb things. But one rescue cat in Utah likes to climb really big things – like mountains!

Craig Armstrong, a mountain climbing enthusiast, adopted Millie from Friends of Animals in Park City, Utah. He tells Backcountry.com, “I met Millie, my climbing partner, at Furburbia. We went into a tiny room to have a chat together away from all the other noisy campers.

She climbed up my back and sat on my shoulders. It took about four seconds to realize we were now partners and would be going on many journeys together.”

When Armstrong discovered Millie’s penchant for adventure, he was thrilled. The two go hiking and camping together on the weekends, sometimes alone and sometimes with friends.
