Video: Injured Police Dog Goes Home After Being Shot in Line of Duty

A Yarmouth, Massachusetts Police Department K-9 named Nero was shot when he accompanied his human partner Sgt. Sean Gannon on a call to serve an arrest warrant.  Sadly, Sgt. Gannon was also shot and died from his injuries.

Nero, a Belgian Malinois, was taken to Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists, where he underwent surgery and has been recovering from his injuries.  He was released from the hospital on the same day as his partner’s funeral.

Nero had been with Sgt. Gannon for over a year, since he was 16 months old.  The Yarmouth Police Department reports that a retired K-9 handler will care for Nero until he fully recovers, and then Nero will live with the Gannon family.

Here’s a local news video about brave Nero.

 

Heartwarming Video: Rescue Dog Fosters Dozens of Kittens

Zuca was a pregnant stray when she was taken in by an animal welfare agency in Oregon.  All her puppies were adopted, and eventually so was Zuca.  This sweet pup became best friends with a cat named Stout in her new forever home.

Sadly, Stout passed away and Zuca was depressed…until her human mom Ronda started taking in foster kittens!  Zuca has been lovingly caring for nearly 100 foster kittens since 2015.

Her mom reports that she gets excited whenever new kittens arrive, and she immediately starts licking them and cuddling with them, knowing instinctively exactly what kind of care each one needs.

This upcoming kitten season, Zuca (now 12 years old but still going strong) and her mom hope to foster at least 20 more babies, bringing their total to over 100.

An added bonus to all this great mothering from Zuca…. all of her foster babies are very comfortable around dogs and do well in adoptive homes with canine siblings!

Check out this adorable video of Zuca in action with her foster kittens, and follow Zuca and her kittens on this irresistible Instagram account!

If It’s February, It Must Be Pet Dental Health Month!

February is National Pet Dental Health Month, and the perfect time to get in the habit of brushing your pet’s teeth (if you don’t already), and scheduling a dental appointment with your veterinarian.

Just like your own dental health, your pet’s dental health is important too.  Tooth decay and gum disease can cause your dog or cat discomfort and other serious health problems if an infection in the mouth spreads.

The American Veterinary Medical Association has a webpage devoted to Pet Dental Health Month, with lots of useful resources for pet parents.

To get you started, they have posted this pet tooth brushing how-to video on YouTube.  Happy brushing!
