October is National Pet Wellness Month
A national campaign is kicking off to encourage pet owners to schedule semi-annual visits with their veterinarians. The `Twice A Year For Life!` campaign designates October as National Pet Wellness Month (NPWM), which is sponsored by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and Fort Dodge Animal Health. Educational materials that emphasize feline health issues are new for this fall. Cats see veterinarians about half as often as dogs, according to AVMA.

It is already the second year of the NPWM campaign.
Why is such a campaign necessary?

`Because pets age seven times faster, on average, than people, major health changes can occur in a short amount of time. That`s why a wellness exam every six months is so important,` says Dr. Lynn Fremin Buzhardt, co-owner of The Animal Center Inc., a NPWM participating practice in Zachary, La.

This study examined 107 aquarium fish from pet shops. Cultivation of the fish samples using different selective media was conducted for identification of NTM - and the results are very interesting.
