Al Cannistra's insight:

SERIOUSLY ?

"Some owners are so enamored with the fish that they're splashing money on plastic surgery for the pets — $90 for an eyelift and $60 for a chin job."

Must be difficult being rich! IMAGINE the stress of having your fish undergo cosmetic surgery!

New leash on life: Michigan group finds old pets new homes

New leash on life: Michigan group finds old pets new homes | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
A 14-year-old dog with a mouthful of bad teeth, a wart on his head and a kidney infection. Tyson's Place Animal Rescue helps old pets find new homes. "There's a lot of animal lovers out there, but not everyone has a passion for the older animals," said Jill Bannink-Albrecht, the founder and driving force behind the 3-year-old Michigan nonprofit that focuses on pets whose owners have been diagnosed with a terminal illness or otherwise are unable to care for them. The 32-year-old from Jamestown Township says it sometimes can be challenging to place mature pets, but she tries to help matters by having their veterinary and grooming needs met, as she did with Bosco, a 14-year-old rat terrier with the lousy choppers.
Al Cannistra's insight:

older dogs, cats and other pets left orphans through no fault of their own...  would be nice to see groups like this all over the country....

What you need to know about pot for pets

What you need to know about pot for pets | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Marijuana laws in the United States are changing almost daily. Right now, recreational marijuana is legal in eight states and the District of Columbia, and medical marijuana is legal in more than 30 states.

That's for people. What if you want to consider cannabis for your cat or dog? There's the whole question of legality plus the fact that there's little research, other than word of mouth, on whether it actually works. Yet you see the ads on social media, or the posts from your friends, promising that it will ease pain and anxiety for your pets. Maybe you're tempted to try it.
Al Cannistra's insight:

I admit pot for pets has never been on my radar - how about you?
