Judge Grants Initial Approval to Pet Food Settlement

dogandkittyImage3.jpg

On Friday May 30 a judge gave initial approval to the pet food settlement:


CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) -- A judge granted initial approval Friday to a settlement in which companies that manufactured or sold contaminated pet food would compensate pet owners for all costs related to the death or illness of their dogs and cats.

Under the deal, granted initial approval by U.S. District Judge Noel Hillman, pet owners in the United States and Canada would be notified of the settlement by June 16 and would have until early December to submit claims. A final hearing on the $24 million settlement is scheduled for Oct. 14.

The settlement doesn't pay pet owners for pain and suffering from injuries to their pets.

And why aren't pain and suffering factors? Because--even though we may consider our pets to be members of our family, pets are only property in the eyes of the law.

Contaminated Pet Food Settlement

dogtable.jpg

A settlement has been reached in the dispute over contaminated pet food. This settlement between pet owners and Diamond Pet Foods has not been approved by a judge and will be heard May 30. We will keep you posted.


Companies that were sued over contaminated pet food linked to the deaths of perhaps thousands of dogs and cats have agreed to pay $24 million to pet owners in the United States and Canada.

The settlement is detailed in papers filed late Thursday in U.S. District Court in Camden. It still needs a judge's approval.

"The settlement attempts to reimburse pet owners for all of their economic damages," said Russell Paul, a lawyer for plaintiffs in the lawsuit.

The deal would affect people who incurred expenses directly related to the illness or death of a pet linked to the food, which was at the center of the biggest-ever U.S. pet food recall in 2007.

Under the terms of the deal announced Thursday, pet owners could be reimbursed for all reasonable expenditures, including veterinarian bills and burial or cremation costs.

Pet owners could also ask for the fair market value of their deceased pets, if that is higher than the costs incurred. Owners who do not have documentation of their expenses can get up to $900 each. All claims are subject to a review.

The settlement addresses economic issues, but to many of us, pets are more than property. What about pain and suffering?

Make a Lasting Memorial to Your Pet

Memorial Day is coming up this Monday. If you have been unfortunate enough to have lost a pet, you can make a lasting memorial to him or her in a Buddhist-type altar, a Memoria Areca.

dog_alter.jpg

Designed for your living room mantle or a dressing table, the box has compartments for an urn as well as a glass display case to display special mementos, such as a collar, leashes, toys, apparel. A picture frame is built into the lid for your favorite photograph. The pet altar comes in two contemporary designs.

Or...you can turn your pet's remains into a Synthetic Diamond, which you can have set into a ring or pendant.

pet_diamond.jpg

Other products in this vein are urns that look like perfume containers and flower arrangements that incorporate the pet's fur. These fit conveniently into the glass case of the memorial altar.

Mossed Garden Topiary - Year Round Wire Art in Many Dog Breeds

Beautiful mossed topiary frames for your yard. The sectional frames come packed with sphagnum moss and can be used year round with little or no maintenance. Can be planted with your favorite summer blooms or wrapped with holiday lights for a festive look.

Golden Retriever Mossed Garden Topiary


They are easy to grow - just poke a hole in the dampened moss and put in your favorite plant or enjoy them as they are. Character eyes are standard on all forms and bring the topiary to life. Size: approx. 35" x 49" x 12"

Garden Topiary Frames are also available as bare frames for you to plant and grow yourself.

Golden Retriever Garden Topiary Frame

The sectional frames can be placed over a shrub (such as boxwood) that is rooted in the ground and allowed to grow up into the form. You then simply trim the plant to the shape of the form as it grows.

Or, you can fill the bottom of the frame with sphagnum moss and plant a climbing vine into the moss. Train the plant to grow into the upper portion of the frame and you'll have a low maintenance, portable planted topiary form.

Mossed Garden Topiaries are available in many different dog breeds, basset, cocker spaniel, chihauhua, jack russell terrier, dachsund, doberman, golden retriever, rottie, scottie and more.

Health Concerns over Pet Sterilization

dog_and_cat.JPG

A serious downside to pet sterilization is cropping up. There may be future health consequences for your pet, as discussed in this article from MSNBC:

Studies have found that spayed or neutered dogs are at increased risks for problems including certain cancers, thyroid disorder, incontinence and some of the same behavior issues that the surgeries are said to prevent....

...Margaret V. Root Kustritz, a veterinary reproduction specialist at the University of Minnesota, reviewed 200 studies and found that while spay/neuter surgery has benefits, it is also linked to increases in the incidence of certain diseases and conditions such as bone cancer, heart tumors, hypothyroidism and canine cruciate ligament (CCL) injuries, as well as prostate cancer in male dogs and urinary incontinence in females. The extent of the risk can depend on the problem, as well as the size and sex of the dog, and the age the surgery is performed.

The risk of a type of cardiac tumor called hemangiosarcoma is five times higher in spayed female dogs than unspayed females, noted Kustritz. And neutered males have 2.4 times the risk of unneutered males. The risk was also higher for osteosarcoma (bone cancer): Dogs spayed or neutered before age 1 were up to two times as likely to develop the disease than those that hadn't been altered.

Cats seem to fare better:

The main risk they face from sterilization is that they can become sedentary and obese, according to Kustritz's review of studies. As a result, vets say sterilizing cats before 6 months of age is appropriate.

Kitchen Scraps for Your Pet -- What's Good & What's Not

db_Golden_Retriever_Puppies1.jpg

When we are in the kitchen whomping up some vittles, it is so hard to resist those cute faces. No one ever feeds them and all they want is a little tidbit! But are you sure those scraps you throw to them won't be harmful?

Check out this MSNBC article, 'People foods that can kill your pet' where you can find a list of bad and good foods for your pet.

cat_tab_kitten_nutrition.jpg
If you do make a mistake, or your pet does, here's what to do in case of emergency. Save or bookmark this info:

Despite all the precautions you take to keep your pet pals safe, accidents do happen. That's why the ASPCA, Humane Society and animal advocates advise pet owners to keep the telephone numbers of their local veterinarian and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center -- (888) 426-4435 -- in a prominent location.

Common signs of poisoning include muscle tremors or seizures; vomiting and diarrhea; drooling; redness of skin, ears and eyes; and swelling and bleeding.

If you suspect your pet has consumed, inhaled or come in contact with a toxic substance, stay calm and call for help immediately. If you see your pet consuming anything you think might be toxic, seek emergency help immediately even if she or he is not exhibiting any symptoms.

And while we are on the subject, here are two articles that may help someday:

How Do Dogs Signal They Want to Play?



How can you tell when a dog, especially one you don't know, is "just playing" or is in fight mode? This is often one reason children become afraid of dogs. They misunderstand play signals for hostility.

The answer is in the "play-bow", according to Marc Bekoff, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Colorado.


Marc Bekoff: That's when one animal crouches on their forelimbs and puts their hind end up and wags their tail and sometimes barks. If two dogs are playing, and one bites the other dog really hard, what we discovered is that we would see a play-bow after the bite, as if the other dog said, "I'm sorry I bit you, let's play."

Let Your Pet Sunbathe Under the Sun Spa

sunspa_Ksd4M_1333.jpg

If your pet is holed up in the house too much and needs to *catch some rays*, as we used to say, just let him or her bask under the Sun Spa.

Your pet can lay out on a sleek wood arch and relax under soothing, simulated sunshine. The Sun Spa maintains the perfect sunbathing temperature of 80-85 degrees.

Vet Blogs: Information and Advice

waitingforthevet.jpg

Norman Rockwell

First up:

Super Cool Pets suspects that if you are into "pet infantilization" you probably aren't spending a lot of time on this site. But if you are interested in pet trends and pet news, you might want to check out this brief post from the uber-informative Miami vet Dolittler: Infantilization in pet keeping...and its unintended consequences for animal health

And second:

An intriguing, interactive source of pet information has surfaced on the web, Ask the Vet:

You have questions. Veterinarian Eric Barchas (pronounced bark-us) has answers, plus stories from the vet's office, commentary on pet news and more. This blog is brought to you by Dogster, Inc., makers of the hydrant-famous Dogster and the unnecessarily feared Catster. You can ask Dr. Barchas a question. If he can answer it he will.

"Tell Me Where It Hurts"-- A Day in the Life of an Animal Surgeon

An intriguing new book out is a "behind-the-scenes" account of a day in the life of a vet: Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon by Nick Trout, a staff surgeon at Boston's Angell Animal Medical Center.
TMWIH.jpg
A quick summary from Susan Richards, author of Chosen by a Horse:

"Dr. Trout has given us a lifetime in one day as he takes us on his rounds as a veterinary surgeon. With equal parts, wit, wisdom, and great kindness, he offers a rare look into the mind and heart of a remarkable man. He is the vet every animal owner wants and the advocate every animal deserves when it comes to facing the complexities and often expensive options of diagnostics and treatment. This is a man who loves his job, and everyone benefits: the animals in his care, their often lovable but sometimes infuriating owners, and, lastly, the reader, who is lucky enough to go along for the literary ride."

Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon. Also available in Kindle Edition--download in less than a minute. Don't have one? Information about the wireless reader Kindle is one click away.
