Mars Petcare Presenting New Technologies at VMX Driving Preventive Care in Veterinary Practice

Unfortunately, our pets can’t tell us what’s ailing them. But fortunately, today, we have new technologies and AI that are giving us insight into their health and behaviors that we’ve not been able to access until now.

For background, this year at VMX, Mars Petcare presented a session on Monday, Jan. 20, about these new technologies and how they are reshaping the world of veterinary care and the relationships between veterinarians and pet owners on proactive health and wellness. Some examples are:

  • Pet Insight Project: Our pets’ behavior has hidden insights into their well-being. In the past two years, Mars Petcare quantified and analyzed over 10 million days of behavioral information from over 90,000 dogs using Whistle FIT monitors to help determine how they relate to our pets’ overall wellbeing. New discoveries from this round-the-clock monitoring project focus on the early identification of canine health issues including dermatologic (skin) disorders which can be identified by disruptive sleep patterns, scratching habits and barking.
  • WISDOM PANEL: This canine DNA test is providing new insights for veterinarians into the specific health needs of dogs through extensive ancestry and genetic health screenings for more than 150 conditions. During the session, Mars will share findings from the large-scale integration of Wisdom Panel™ Health genetic testing into the Banfield® Pet Hospital Puppy Optimum Wellness Plans® which has tested 200,000 puppies in just over a year, including 5% who have actionable health insights identified in their DNA.
  • RenalTech™: The first-ever predictive tool in veterinary medicine that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to predict whether a cat will develop chronic kidney disease – which affects 30-40 percent of cats over the age of 10 – two years before typical clinical diagnosis offering new avenues for monitoring and treatment to improve the health and well-being of feline patients. 

Bash Dibra is a big, ebullient man with a warm smile, a gentle manner, and a lifelong affinity for dogs. When he was only three years old and fled with his family from Albania to a refugee camp in Yugoslavia, he made friends with the attack dogs that guarded the compound. Later, as the family traveled through Europe, Bash was able to work with master dog trainers, and he continued his work when he came to the United States. Then came the opportunity to raise and train a wolf, and through this experience Bash developed his unique methods of dog training.

Bash & Friends.jpgAs author of six best-selling books on responsible pet ownership, training and the proper treatment of animals in the entertainment industry, Bash Dibra sets the industry standard of service to celebrities and their pets as well as to pets who are celebrities in their own right. Mr. Dibra has trained the pets of countless celebrities, including Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathleen Turner, Mariah Carey, Joan Rivers, Kim Bassinger and Alec Baldwin. His own pets are celebrities themselves, featured in motion pictures, television commercials and print ads.

Bash has appeared on countless TV shows promoting responsible pet ownership, and he works diligently behind the scenes for animal welfare and to promote animals in service to mankind. Bash credits his incredible way with dogs to his beloved wolf, Mariah, who taught him so much, and who was the official symbol of the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo.

U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist Introduces Petfax Act to Combat Puppy Mills Protect Consumers

Washington D.C. – Yesterday U.S. Representatives Charlie Crist (D-FL) and Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) introduced legislation in the U.S. House recognized as the “Petfax Act” to mandate honesty and transparency in the commercial sales of dogs and cats and crackdown on cruel “puppy mills”– large commercial dog breeding operations that breed high volumes of puppies to sell at pet stores and across the internet. It is the third anti-puppy mill bill introduced in this Congress – an indicator of the broad concern about the systematic mistreatment of dogs in large-scale commercial dog breeding operations.

Over 100,000 mother dogs are forced to suffer in puppy mills where they are forced to spend their entire lives in barren cages without ever touching a blade of grass. Horrific, painful injuries are commonplace and frequently go untreated. Puppies often become sick due to the unsanitary conditions of mills and long-distance transport to pet stores where they are sold to unsuspecting customers. It is not uncommon for pet stores to deny that the dogs come from puppy mills. Current laws barely meet survival standards, fail to adequately protect animals and consumers, and allow violators to continue renewing their license.

“Most dogs sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, where the dogs are treated like a cash crop,” said Holly Gann, Director of Federal Affairs for the Animal Wellness Foundation and Animal Wellness Action, “If you buy a car, you can get a full history from Carfax; but when it comes to purchasing a puppy, sellers generally won’t provide information about where the dog came from or the dog’s medical history.”

“Welcoming a new pet into your home is a decision rooted in love. Pet owners deserve the peace of mind that their new family member wasn’t abused or mistreated by breeder or seller,” said Rep. Crist. “Requiring a Petfax increases transparency, decreasing the potential for animal abuse, a win-win for all parties involved.”

“Too many animals suffer from inhumane conditions in our nation,” said Reschenthaler. “The Petfax Act of 2020, bipartisan legislation I’m introducing with Rep. Crist, will better protect dogs and cats from neglect and abuse. By improving transparency and providing consumers with more information, including the source of their pet and its record on animal welfare inspections, we can hold irresponsible sellers of dogs and cats accountable. Given the proven ties between cruelty to animals and child and senior abuse, I will continue fighting to strengthen protections for our nation’s pets.”

The Petfax Act would:

·        Require that sellers of dogs and cats disclose certain information to a customer about the animals, including information identifying the dealer who bred the animals, the number of dogs bred and sold by that dealer over the past two years, a listing of any violations the dealer has had in the past two years, and health information about the animals, including whether a veterinarian was seen, vaccinations administered, and congenital disease. The Petfax Act would make it illegal for a seller, such as a pet store, to misrepresent the source of a dog or cat, including misrepresenting whether the animal came from a mill.

·        Require that animal welfare inspection records are reinstated on the USDA website, so that the public can look up a breeder prior to purchasing a dog to see if the breeder has violations. These records were previously available until being taken down by the USDA in 2017, eliminating transparency and allowing mills with violations to have no accountability.

  • Similar to another bill in Congress – the Welfare Of Our Friends (WOOF) Act – the bill closes a loophole that allows mills with violations to continue operating. The bill prohibits USDA from issuing or renewing a license to a dealer who has had a suspension within the past 10 years. It also prevents a license from being granted to the immediate family member of a dealer who has had their license suspended or revoked, to someone who resides at the same address, or to an entity where the dealer holds an ownership interest.

The Petfax Act for honesty in pet sales is the latest in local, state, and federal legislation to root out puppy mills. Two other bills have also been introduced in Congress: The WOOF Act would address loopholes to stop puppy mills with suspensions from continuing to operate, and the Puppy Protection Act would increase the standards of care for mother dogs kept in these mills. Over 300 localities across the nation have adopted legislation to prevent pet stores from selling puppies that come from puppy mills, and California and Maryland have adopted similar state legislation, with many more to follow.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We are advocates for getting veterinarians to the front lines of the animal welfare movement; promoting responsible pet ownership; and vaccinating animals against infectious diseases such as distemper. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 17, 2020) – Up-and-coming singer/songwriter Alyssa Trahan is making waves with her first release of the year, “Memories Not Dreams. After signing a publishing deal in 2018 and releasing her brand of captivating music over the past year, Trahan is back with a single meant to inspire.

Written on a songwriters retreat with Kent Maxson and Adam James Deiboldt, she sings of aiming to accomplish all of her goals in order to turn them into fond memories. “Memories Not Dreams” can be streamed and downloaded here.

Trahan explains, “this song is so special to me because it has a message that every single person can relate to. I hope it will inspire people to go and live their dreams or even go and call someone they haven’t talked to in a while, because life is shorter than you think.”

"Everyone wants to live a life with no regrets, chasing after those dreams. Trahan perfectly captures this in her newest single... Her message, to live a life with no regrets, is one that everyone can relate to.” - Donna Black, Medium

While not recording or writing, Trahan spends her time producing demos and tracks for herself and other artists, opening for acclaimed musicians such as Charlie Daniels, Lee Ann Womack and Midland, as well as writing for and starring in commercials.

The Guidelines and accompanying Client Brochure provide a guide to veterinary practitioners in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of these common infectious diseases in cats

[HILLSBOROUGH, NJ – January 2020] On Thursday, January 9, the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) will release updated Feline Retrovirus Testing and Management Guidelines to the veterinary community, which will be published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery. In publishing these Guidelines, the AAFP aims to provide the most current information about feline retrovirus infections to veterinary practitioners so they may optimize the care and management of their feline patients. In addition, the Client Brochure provides cat caregivers with information regarding transmission, testing, prevalence, and precautions. These Guidelines focus on feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infections, which are found in cats worldwide. The spread of these viruses can be minimized through education, testing, and vaccinations.

The updated Guidelines represent a consensus of current information compiled by an international panel of researchers and practitioners, and is an update of the AAFP’s heavily referenced 2008 Retrovirus Testing and Management Guidelines.
 
“Education and early testing can greatly assist in the treatment and management of feline retrovirus infections. Routine veterinary care, when cats are well and when they are sick, can lead to better care and decrease the spread of infection. We are pleased to present these Guidelines to support both veterinary professionals and cat caregivers in the management of these illnesses. We further stress the partnership between veterinarians and cat owners in caring for infected cats because with regular healthcare and reduced stress, cats infected with retroviruses, especially FIV, may live many healthy years,” said Heather O’Steen, CEO, AAFP.
 
“The 2020 Feline Retrovirus Testing and Management Guidelines contain much new information about feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus infections. The Guidelines were written by an international panel of experts and included not only retrovirus researchers, but veterinarians working in private practice and in shelters. We hope these Guidelines will be of practical use for all veterinarians. The panel is especially proud to have endorsement of the Guidelines by the International Society of Feline Medicine,” said Retrovirus Guidelines Co-Chair Susan Little, DVM, DABVP (Feline).
 
Julie Levy, DVM, PhD, DACVIM, DABVP (Shelter Medicine) added, “These guidelines address rapidly evolving knowledge about how testing results, clinical expression, and prognosis for FeLV may change over time relative to the cat’s current immune response and resulting levels of virus in circulation, how quantitative testing may be used to better inform clinical decision-making, and an emerging trend in which screening for FeLV and FIV is increasingly shifting from animal shelters, where cats are adopted, to veterinary practices, where animals receive comprehensive care.”
 
 
 
More About Retroviruses:
These Guidelines and Client Brochure represent current knowledge on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of retrovirus infections in cats. Infections with FeLV and FIV are associated with a variety of clinical signs and can impact quality of life and longevity. Although vaccines are available for FeLV in many countries and for FIV in some countries, identification of infected cats remains an important factor for preventing new infections. The retrovirus status of every cat at risk of infection should be known. Cats should be tested as soon as possible after they are acquired, following exposure to an infected cat or a cat of unknown infection status, prior to vaccination against FeLV or FIV, and whenever clinical illness occurs. It might not be possible to determine a cat’s infection status based on testing at a single point in time; repeat testing using different methods could be required. Although FeLV and FIV infections can be associated with clinical disease, some infected cats, especially those infected with FIV, can live for many years with good quality of life. There is a paucity of data evaluating treatments for infected cats, especially antiretroviral and immunomodulatory drugs. Management of infected cats is focused on effective preventive health care strategies and prompt identification and treatment of illness, as well as limiting spread of infection. 
 

Prevalence and the Spread of Retroviruses in Cats:
FIV: Feline immunodeficiency virus is more commonly found in male cats and cats that fight with other cats. It is found less often in kittens and neutered adult cats. The virus is spread primarily through saliva and is usually passed to other cats by bite wounds. In North America, about 3 to 5% of tested cats are found to be infected with FIV.
 
FeLV: Feline leukemia virus infection is more commonly spread from mother to kittens. The virus can also be spread between cats that live together or those that fight. It is mainly spread in saliva during grooming and when food and water bowls are shared. The virus is less often spread through urine, feces, or nasal discharge. In North America, 4% of tested cats are found to be infected with the virus.
 
 
Prevention:
There are no vaccines marketed in the United States or Canada that can protect cats from FIV infection.
 
Vaccines to protect cats from FeLV infection are available. The vaccine is recommended for all kittens, again one year later, and for cats that have ongoing risk of infection. Adult indoor-only cats living alone or with uninfected cats may not need to be vaccinated after the first two years. Veterinarians will help assess an individual cat’s vaccination needs.

November Update
Many of us are coming of a hard summer with fires and storms and now facing terrible, arctic early winter storms with dipping temperatures!
 
Please keep you and your family safe. If you know of or see an animals in trouble PLEASE DO SOMETHING! We are the only voice they have and many folks don't realize their pets, cant take these freezing temps and need to brought indoors. The pets will get sick or die in these freezing temperatures!
 
We are hard at work continue to rescue and make space in the shelters. We wanted to bring to you our newest video about just one rescue dog that is in our overcrowded shelters!
 
Check out Ruby's story below!
Be Prepared in Emergencies!
 
Make sure to update microchip information and have your veterinarian info on hand in case of emergencies. You never know when you may need the help!
 
Read our helpful tips below!
CANCER AND OBESITY IN AMERICA’S PETS
WHAT FOODS ARE SAFE?
 
Many of you are hearing the same scary information concerning your pets food, it IS SCARY and confusing everyone.
 
I shop in stores and see people with big POPULAR bags of dog food in their carts and I cringe. I know the food is making their dogs sick, obese and potentially life threatening through illnesses such as Cancer!
 
After feeding over 3,000 dogs over my rescue lifetime, I know exactly what has been fed and where obesity and Cancer come from.
 
I have learned that WHITE POTATO is an absolute; never feed, as it will most likely, cause the cancer cells in their bodies to feed and grow!  Sweet potato, on the other hand, is safe and fine to feed.
 
The questions about legumes, peas and lentils causing heart disease is a big topic of conversation, but in small doses, there is no proof that it leads to heart disease in dogs. The test studies have NOT BEEN DONE!
 
Simple rule of thumb: Dogs and cats, used to hunt for their food, which was a single protein. No additives. They ate grass for the enzymes to digest their dinner.
 
So keep it simple and basic!
 
Read your food bags and cans! The more ingredients listed usually indicates they are not actually putting in enough good meat in the product.
 
I believe in cost effective, quality food, with real meat, as America’s love for animals has grown,. More people rescue pets off the street or from shelters, but our difficult economy, does not afford high priced foods for our pets.
 
Here are a few brands I do feed to my 100 dogs in our rescue Wellness center:
Not found at the big box pet stores:
“Taste of the Wild”- PINE FOREST recipe.
PREY- Grain free  (only found at feed and some boutique stores)
GENTLE GIANTS- Salmon dry and canned. ( Must call around)
 
CHEWY- Currently if you are a new customer - they are having a sale
2 bags for the price of one on their American Journey Grain free!!
New customers use our sign up promo code www.chewy.co/RP/5385
