CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR OWN ERIC OROZCO ON HIS RESIDENCY ACCEPTANCE
  

We would like to take this time to congratulate our own Eric Orozco and wish him well on his future as he embarks this month on his poultry medicine residency at the University of Mississippi. Eric started as a veterinary school graduate from Mexico City and came to us as a talented technician and we were lucky to have showcased his service to our community. We wish him great success in the future!

Did you ever wonder what your cat is trying to say?

Hint: It's about a combination of body language, sound, and aroma.

Avoid misunderstandings.

Take a one hour course in cat language (and even earn a certificate) at:

DID YOU KNOW ...that there are a whole lot of new regulations for airline travel for pets?

Pets can travel on a plane in one of four ways:

  • Cargo
  • Checked Luggage
  • In the cabin in carrier
  • In the cabin out of the carrier

Cargo transport involves personnel trained in animal transport and environmentally controlled areas. The problem is that it is charged by distance traveled and by weight.

Checked luggage is cheaper but your pet travels with baggage. This might involve those open air carts one sees on the tarmac. This is not always safe and is not recommended.

Pets in the cabin must fit in a carrier under the seat ahead which limits pet size greatly. Emotional support animals may travel in the cabin outside the carrier.

Numerous airlines have decided to require special documentation of the emotional support status of a pet.
Be sure you know what paperwork is required in advance.

Some airlines limit transport of short-faced breeds during the Summer when desert destinations are involved.
Again, find out what you need to know before you head off to your vacation.
