TORONTO — More than 3,500 veterinary professionals attended the combined conferences of the American Animal Hospital Assn. and the Ontario Veterinary Medical Assn. from March 24 to 27 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
AAHA certifies veterinary hospitals that attain standards for excellence in veterinary care. The AAHA logo appears at accredited hospitals, indicating those facilities and their personnel have withstood assessment by AAHA reviewers. AAHA also provides general pet care information, and offers medical care guidelines on various topics (including vaccines and Life Stage Guidelines for Cats), available at http://www.healthypet.org.
I sniffed out experts at the event to answer some of your questions.
Question: My friend took in an antisocial cat, giving this declawed and formerly abused animal a good home. Now, my friend has cancer and not much time to live. He can't find a home for this cat. I don't believe the cat could survive outdoors. Any advice? —T.G., Cyberspace
