Paws Up for Autism Dog Services!

Autism%20logoAt least once a week we like to venture out to a new walking spot. Sometimes we make it a day-trip to explore new communities. Other times we take a mini exploration in our own community. We explored a new uncharted bike path (for us anyways) last summer in Oshawa.

It was along this path, terror stuck a Labrador retriever named Scotland, a service dog to an Autistic child this past month. Fortunately, Scotland was with an adult and the child was not present at the time. I can only imagine the fear Scotland and the adult walking him felt when they were suddenly attacked by the two dogs who had jumped over their backyard fence. To date, the owner of the dogs that attacked Scotland have not been found. Needless to say, it is my wish (along with many other residents), that they are and held responsible.

50% of dogs in University of Guelph's VSTEP program killed

University of Guelph's Ontario Veterinary College is dedicated to animal health care and a leader in North American Veterinary Colleges. That is why it's difficult to understand why the Veterinary Skills Training and Enhancement Program (VSTEP) is currently under fire by public scrutiny. In this program International Veterinary students are taught Canadian Veterinary criteria so they may practise here. The International students perform basic spays however these procedures were not supervised. The bottom line was numerous botched spays that resulted in ending 10 out of 20 animals lives.
