    NEWS: Superbugs - A Human-Cat Connection?

    A common bacterium called Staphylococcus aureus lives on the skin and in the noses of people and other animals, usually without consequence. But a certain form of the bacterium, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a "superbug" that is resistant to many commonly used antibiotics. MSRA is linked to over 125,000 human hospitalizations in the United States every year. (For more information, visit the Centers for Disease Control website on staph. www.cdc.gov/ncidod/aip/research/mrsa.html)

    ac1135 How do I choose a Veterinarian for my cat?

    Your choice of a veterinarian is an extremely important decision that could profoundly affect the quality of care that your cat receives. So how does one go about choosing a vet?

    First, you should probably begin by defining your needs. It may help you to compose a list of those things that are a priority for you. For instance, do you need someone in close proximity to your home? If you depend on public transportation or a friend driving you then distance is certainly a very important consideration.

    ac1135When you can’t afford a Veterinarian

    This question comes up in many internet forums daily. A member will post a series of complaints about their cat, some of them heart-wrenching, and then follow up the list of symptoms with, "But I can't afford a vet, so what do I do?"

    When you share your life with a cat, or any animal, you assume the responsibility of that animal. Vet care is not a luxury; vet care is a necessity, and at times an emergency. The animal should not be denied veterinary care because you can’t afford it. A small health issue handled right away will prevent a larger health issue that will develop later.

    ac1135The Veterinarian’s Oath

    "Being admitted to the profession of veterinary medicine, I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health the relief of animal suffering, the conservation of animal resources, the promotion of public health, and the advancement of medical knowledge.

Those that do work in clinical settings often practice medicine in specific fields, such as companion animal or "pet" medicine....

    There is some reciprocal international recognition of veterinary degrees. For example, veterinarians with degrees from the UK or New Zealand are immediately allowed to practice in Australia whereas vets with degrees from other countries are usually required to pass a set of qualifying exams before being allowed to practice. Veterinarians graduating from AVMA accredited universities, (e.g. University of Glasgow, Royal Veterinary College, Utrecht etc) may work in the USA after passing the NAVLE, a veterinary licensing exam taken by all American veterinarians. Non-AVMA accredited university graduates must also sit a week long Clinical Proficiency Examination in order to work in the USA. Veterinarians who have graduated from an AVMA accredited University are eligible to practice in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Canada, and the United States. Australia currently has five Universities offering veterinary degrees - University of Sydney, Murdoch University, University of Melbourne, University of Queensland, and Charles Sturt University. James Cook University is a sixth University that prepared for its first intake of vet students at the end of 2005.

    In the United Kingdom and some Commonwealth nations, a veterinary surgeon is an animal practicioner regulated by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966. This legislation restricts the treatment of animals in the UK to qualified veterinary surgeons only, with certain specific exceptions, including physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, on the under the supervision of a veterinary surgeon. Various alternative medicine therapies (such as homeopathy, acupuncture, herbal medicine) can only be performed by a veterinary surgeon
