Positive Outcome for Beagles Used in Pesticide Tests

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (03-30-2019) #616: Featuring Kitty Block, and Dr. Fred Metzger. Kitty Block, director of the Humane Society of the U.S., discusses with Tracie how HSUS was able to influence a positive outcome in the urgent situation of the Beagles being used for pesticide tests and previously slated for euthanasia; Tracie answers the first round of questions from listeners about cat behavior issues, all of whom she sent a coupon for a free Comfort Zone pheromone diffuser; Dr. Fred Metzger of the eponymous Metzger 24-hour Animal Hospital in State College, Pennsylvania discusses the remarkable positive outcomes he’s had using CBD oil and why he chose Ellevet Sciences as a reliable, science-based provider.

Happy Breaking News on the Dow-Agrosciences (now “Corteva”) Beagles: Kitty Block, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States released this statement: “The Humane Society of the United States is truly grateful to Corteva for choosing a reputable and trustworthy organization, Michigan Humane Society, to ensure the care and placement of the dogs into loving homes. We thank MHS for taking on the responsibility for these dogs, who have gained worldwide attention. We will continue our long-term work to end the use of dogs for testing of various products, including pesticides and drugs.”

For more thoughts about the outcome, please read Marc Bekoff article in Psychology Today about how “dogs rescued from abusive situations need a lot of support and love to be successfully rehomed — and that it must be more than a ‘feel good’ move by researchers who decide to do so.”
