Questions about AHA ethicsEthical Questions About American Humane
The American Humane Association (AHA) charges thousands of dollars to put its "No Animal Were Harmed in the Making of this Movie" certification at the end of feature films.

How to properly pet a cat or dog according to Dr. Marty BeckerYou're Petting Your Pets Wrong
Dr. Marty Becker is back with new research that shows you may be petting cats and dogs improperly. This is especially important if you're a veterinarian. The Fear Free Pets movement wants us to rethink how we interact with our four-legged friends.

Do Dogs Like 'Baby Talk'
Most of us baby talk to babies and our dogs, but maybe we should just limit it to puppies because it turns out older dogs aren't so impressed with our baby talk. A new study shows that baby talk, also known as dog-directed speech when you're conversing with your dog, gets a big response from puppies, but older dogs really couldnÔÇÖt care less.
The Secret Service removes Mike Pence's Rabbit from Air Force Two
No Pets in The White House - But VP Doesn't Disappoint!
When Vice President Mike Pence and his family moved into the Naval Observatory last week, a new furry friend accompanied them: a rabbit named Marlon Bundo.

Pet owners could face a misdemeanor charge for animal neglect if their pets are found in distress and given a fine from $250 to $5,000 depending on the severity.

Recipe for Cats and Dogs To Get Along
Recipe for cats and dogs to get alongCats and dogs really can get along to the point that they'll play hard together, drink water from the same bowl and cuddle on the couch, according to research led from Tel Aviv University. They discovered the recipe for success is to adopt the cat first and introduce a dog while both pets are still young. In homes where the cat and dog are mates, the research suggests they've managed to correctly read each other's body cues.

Pets May Benefit The Mentally Ill
There is an ever-growing body of evidence that reinforces the health benefits of animals and pets. A new study published by BMC Psychiatry explores the role pets had in support, self-management and personal networks of those suffering from long-term significant mental illness (e.g. bipolar disorder, schizophrenia). Their research concludes, "Pets should be considered a main rather than a marginal source of support in the management of long-term mental health problems."

Was it some very bizarre coincidence that as we said goodbye and rest in peace to 39-year-old Tilikum, the orca who died at SeaWorld in Orlando a few weeks ago, that just 2 days later the very last ever killer whale show was performed at Sea World in San Diego?

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a widely used industrial chemical found in many household items, including resins that are used to line and inhibit corrosion of metal food cans.

Judge Rules Dogs Are Property
A Canadian judge has ruled dogs are property and cannot be considered in the same vein as children in a scathing decision blasting a newly separated couple for a "ridiculous" attempt to use the court system to settle custody dispute over two of their three dogs.

"Am I to make an order that one party have interim possession of the family butter knives?"
