Dog Talk #392 (10-20-2014)

Dog Talk (and Kitties, Too!)

Dog Talk (10-20-2014) #392: Mary Peng from the International Center for Veterinary Services in Beijing explains the recent rabies cull of five thousand “loosely owned village dogs” in Southern China where there had been five human fatalities from dog bites — and describes the differences in this disease transmission between countries like the United States and Great Britain where rabies in dogs is practically unknown because of vaccination — and China, where dogs are the only carriers of rabies and thousands of people a year die from exposure; L.A. Kornetsky talks about her latest “Gin and Tonic” mystery, DOG HOUSE, and the dog and cat who are prominent characters; Dr. Nick Dodman, renowned animal behaviorist professor at Tufts University, is heading up the new non-profit Center for Canine Behavior Studies, the primary purpose of which is to reduce the number of dogs relinquished to shelters by studying dog/owner personality matches and identify and manage incompatibility to keep dogs in their homes.
