The Pet Hoarder Disorder
Hoarders are people with a disorder that causes them to collect objects. But people who collect things and objects are not the same as people who collect animals. A new study, published in the journal Psychiatry Research, takes a look at the motivations of people who hoard animals. This latest study suggests that animal hoarding should be classified as an independent disorder with the hope of developing specialized treatments to help these people cope with the compulsion to collect critters.

Renee Zellweger is recusing animals after hurricaneActress Helps Rescue Dogs from Hurricane Aftermath
The heartbreak of the recent hurricanes in Texas and Florida has shown us a lot of animal heroes. The founder of Houston Pets Alive says one busy morning after the Harvey struck, someone tapped her on the shoulder and said, "Just so you know, Renee Zellweger is over there cleaning kennels and doing your laundry." Sure enough, she turned around to see the actress (who is also a native Texan) quietly cleaning kennels. And it wasn't just a photo op for publicity. The rescue says Zellweger "was here four days literally cleaning crates, doing laundry and walking the dogs."

Neuroscientist Gregory Berns is on Animal RadioWhat's It Like To Be A Dog?
Neuroscientist Gregory Berns managed to put several dogs into an MRI machine to scan their brains and try to understand how they think and feel. Do dogs have emotions? Do they have empathy? Do dogs have a sense of humor? You may be surprised at some of these answers.

Counterfeit Flea Medication
The latest break in the counterfeit investigation came after a California man admitted in federal court that he had been selling unregistered and smuggled animal pesticides online for 15 years. The phony products were sold at pet shops in every state. Authorities say the phony products were labeled with well-known brand names, such as Frontline and Advantix, and entered the legitimate pet pharmaceutical marketplace without any detection whatsoever. The counterfeit medication even ended up in some big name chain stores as well.

Dog Friendly Breweries
The website TripsWithPets.com has unveiled its brand new list of dog-friendly breweries across America. It joins their lists of dog-friendly restaurants, beaches and other attractions, along with airline and car rental policies for pets and pet friendly vacation activities. For example, did you know there are whale-watching trips, excursions mining for gems, wine tastings and apple picking activities for you and your pet?

Bill Forces Pet Stores To Only Sell Shelter Pets
California is looking to take a stand against puppy mills. If Assembly bill A.B. 485 is passed, the bill would enact a statewide ban on the sale of puppy mill pets in pet stores, allowing only adoptable pets from legitimate shelters and nonprofit rescues groups. Animal advocates say by passing the bill, it will enable California to cut off the supply of inhumanely bred puppies and prevent consumers from unwittingly supporting puppy mills.

Pot and Pets
A new study out of Colorado shows a four-fold increase in pet cannabis-related medical cases and much of that is simply pets getting into their owners' stash. The active chemical in marijuana called THC (it's what gives users the high) is toxic to pets. Veterinary experts say that cannabis can damage the neurological system in pets and can sometimes be fatal. Also, many of the marijuana desserts and sweets are made using Xylitol and artificial sweeter which is also extremely toxic to dogs.

Getting Pneumonia from Guinea Pigs
There's a new discovery that's just hit the world of guinea pig lovers. Dutch researchers say the cute furry rodents may carry germs tied to a very serious type of pneumonia. It's caused by the same bacteria the causes pink eye in guinea pigs and three people in the Netherlands have wound up hospitalized for pneumonia after contact with guinea pigs.

How Much Would You Spend to Save Your Pet?
More and more pet parents these days are willing to go the financial distance for their pets to give them the best. Americans dog owners spend $2,033 toward their pets on average each year and cat owners about half that at $1,042. But when pet owners are forced to choose between big vet bills and the life of their furry friends, dog owners are willing to pay around $7,000 more than cat owners according to a new survey. So what's the actual number? Those who have dogs say they're willing to spend up to $10,725 to save their pets, while cat owners say they're willing to spend up to $3,454. But for those people who had both cats and dogs, they'd be willing to spend up to $10,200 on average for either their cats or dogs.

Spare Fido the Advil
Ibuprofen is the #1 medication about which the Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) receives calls. Never, ever, give a dog ibuprofen without first consulting a veterinarian. Pets metabolize ibuprofen differently than humans and even small amounts of the human pain reliever can be dangerous to animals. Giving your dog ibuprofen can cause vomiting and gastric distress and could also lead to seizures, coma and death. APCC's annual report breaks down the most common pet toxins across the nation. Popular brands of ibuprofen include Advil, Motrin and Midol.

Rats taking care of catsRats Care for Kittens
A cat cafe in Brooklyn has recruited a pair of rats to care for its newborn kittens. They are young rats named Remy and Emile. These special rats were raised around kittens from a young age and are mostly used to care for orphaned kittens, sometimes called "bottle babies." But, because the rats are not afraid of the kittens, the rats donÔÇÖt run away and the kittens mostly don't chase them, although they do love playing with the rat's tails during supervised play sessions.
