Quotes

"What methods are available, what affects their application, the impact of these activities on both the animals and people involved, and where we can improve are all important to our responsibility and opportunity to promote animals’ good welfare" adds Dr. Gail Golab, director of the AVMA's Animal Welfare Division
"Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs & Cats” includes 1,600 photos with captions describing various training techniques. Still, it’s sometimes better to watch, and a DVD, included with the book, features many demonstrations."
...Mark Lutschaunig, director of AVMA's Governmental Relations Division. "Veterinarians like Ackley, Crawford and La Jeunesse have a unique opportunity to use their scientific training and expertise to help our nation's leaders craft sound legislative policies that will enhance animal health and welfare, protect our food supply, promote public health and preserve our environment for the future. On behalf of the AVMA, we would like to thank the three fellows for their commitment to public service and welcome them to Washington."
"When in doubt, don't consult with Dr. Google," says Dr. Bernadine Cruz, a companion animal veterinarian in Laguna Hills, Calif. "You get what you pay for. When your pet has a problem, you need professional eyes, ears, fingers and sometimes diagnostic tests to assess it.”"
