Les furets sont des animaux actifs et enjoués qui apprécient la compagnie des humains. Ils peuvent être très dociles s’ils sont manipulés avec douceur dès leur plus jeune âge. Assurez-vous que les sorties des espaces de vie et les entrées vers des endroits potentiellement dangereux (machines à laver, fauteuils inclinables, etc.) sont bien sécurisées, car les furets sont reconnus pour leur capacité à se glisser dans de très petits espaces. L’odeur de furet est une préoccupation pour certaines personnes. La stérilisation entraîne une réduction significative des odeurs. Cependant, une faible odeur résiduelle persiste souvent. Les furets ont besoin d’une alimentation très riche en protéines et en matières grasses de grande qualité. Ils vivent généralement 6 ou 7 ans, mais développent fréquemment un cancer à un âge plus jeune. Demandez conseil à votre médecin vétérinaire si vous envisagez d’adopter un furet. #VétérinairesPartenaires

Ferrets are active, playful pets that enjoy human companionship. They can be very docile when handled gently from an early age. Ensure exits from living areas and entrances to hazards (washing machines, recliner chairs, etc.) are well secured, as ferrets are notorious for slipping into potentially dangerous hidden areas through very small spaces. Ferret odour is a concern for some potential owners. Neutering alone will provide a significant reduction in odour. However, a low-level residual odour will often be present. Ferrets require a very high quality and concentration of protein and fats in their diet. They usually live 6-7 years but frequently develop cancer at younger ages. Talk to your veterinarian if you are considering adopting a ferret. #VetCareEverywhere

🗣️ Let’s talk about the Violence Link.

Research shows the link between domestic violence and animal abuse, which often leads to domestic violence survivors delaying leaving their abuser out of concern for their pets’ safety.

According to recent research conducted in Canada by Humane Canada's Canadian Violence Link Coalition (CVLC) Steering Committee Member Dr. Amy Fitzgerald and others, 56% of women delayed leaving their abuser and 33% report that they returned to their abuser out of concern for their pet.

Humane Canada founded the CVLC in 2018, which is committed to advancing awareness, education and training about the link between violence against humans and violence against animals. The CVLC’s goal is to introduce violence prevention and intervention strategies across the country and to establish policies and practices that make our communities safer.

To advance training and education on the Violence Link, Humane Canada is hosting the Canadian Violence Link Conference online on November 4-5, 2021, with a special half-day workshop for professionals in Ottawa, whose work intersects with the Violence Link.

The 3rd biennial Canadian Violence Link Conference, hosted by Humane Canada, is taking place online this fall on November 4-5, 2021.

What is the Violence Link you ask? It is the evidence-based relationship between animal abuse and human abuse. When we prevent abuse towards animals, we could be preventing abuse towards people, and vice versa.

Humane Canada convenes this conference every other year to bring various sectors together to deepen our understanding of the Violence Link and learn about the latest trends and intervention strategies designed to end the cycle of violence.

This two-day conference will feature interactive, engaging sessions where you can network with professionals in your region, learn how to break down silos and build important relationships that will assist you in your day-to-day work. Plus, if you are a professional working in the Ottawa area, whose work is, or intersects with, the Violence Link, you will qualify to attend an exclusive half-day workshop for Ottawa professionals for FREE! (Includes registration to the two-day Canadian Violence Link conference).

Need editorial board member of veterinary medical science journal . Interested candidate send your CV at [email protected]
Hi, I'm an investor interested in opening a vet clinic in Canada and I am looking for a vet to partner with. If you're interested, please feel free to contact me on [email protected]
Dear colleagues, This is a call to raise our voice for the endangered wildlife whose habitat will be lost to logging of old-growth forests underway on Vancouver Island, BC. You do not need to be a wildlife veterinarian for this. The new version of the Canadian Veterinary Oath states that one of our duties is to "protect the health of the public and the environment." If there was ever an urgent need to promote the principles of One Health, it is now. Below is the text of the letter I have sent to the powers that be; please feel free to use it as a template. Too many people have the mistaken impression that this War in the Woods is just a bunch of hippies and First Nations folk with nothing better to do or who oppose any kind of logging. The BC and Federal government needs to hear from veterinary professionals if we ourselves want to be taken seriously as a profession. And on a personal note, as much heartbreak as this campaign has caused me, it has also put the stresses of everyday practice into amazing perspective. This is my NOMV strategy, and maybe it can help others, too. Backgrounder: https://www.paulmanlymp.ca/post/invoke-species-at-risk-act?fbclid=IwAR1YpR1ewSBFll-pC2H3Z98tWn3YzqdtOUaOoOv9VL2Z5I9HGaY5IBY2Cw4 Please write, individually, or collectively, to the following officials: - Your MP; - Your MLA; - The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change [email protected] - John Horgan (BC Premier and MLA for the riding that includes Fairy Creek and area): [email protected] - Katrine Conroy, provincial Minister of Forests: [email protected] - George Heyman, provincial Minister of Environment: [email protected] - MP(Alistair MacGregor)/MLA for Cowichan-Malahat-Langford: [email protected] My letter, which has the factual info but also personal details you'd leave out: Dear *******, I am requesting that you issue a Federal Emergency Order to halt logging in the Caycuse area of British Columbia because of the newly found threatened Western screech owl, protected under the Species at Risk Act. As a veterinarian, I have taken an oath to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. This duty does not stop at pets and domestic animals but extends to wildlife who are suffering or under threat. Old-growth forests support diverse ecosystems that are irreplaceable and are home to many endangered species. Their destruction robs us of our humanity, and will bring shame on my beloved adoptive country of Canada. I come from Europe, where it is illegal to log trees older than 100 years. Soon after the Clayoquot Sound forest was saved from logging, it was designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. We in Canada must overcome the illusion that our natural resources are limitless. The rest of the world sees them for what they are: rare, and priceless. As a clinician in private practice I am sadly familiar with financial limitations dictating the level of care my profession can provide to its patients. I appreciate that in this situation, loggers' livelihoods may at stake. Fortunately, old growth need not be sacrificed to save people's livelihoods. Under the heading Investing in the Forest-based Bio-economy, this year's Federal Budget "proposes to provide $54.8 million over two years, starting in 2021-22, to Natural Resources Canada, to enhance the capacity of the Investments in the Forest Industry Transformation programme." Further, the Budget "proposes to provide $2.3 billion over five years to protect nature" (Ch. 5.6). Given political will, only a small fraction of these funds would save nothing less than our Canadian identity. I support a logging industry based on sustainable harvesting of second- and third-growth trees and their processing here in BC to create local jobs. Thank you for your time and for your hard work. Sincerely, *************
Hello, I'm considering moving to Vancouver Island. Currently a Veterinary Tech in the US. Can you direct me to the information needed for me to continue this profession in Canada. Thanks

Hi there - can anybody provide some thoughts on pet nutrition supplements - I find researching online seems to be replete with marketing schemes and links to Amazon. I also find it difficult to compare ingredient and nutritional information across various sources and brands...we use Veterinary line Purina Pro Plan for our 19 week old very active ESS. It was recommended by our breeder that we use NuVet supplements and joint supplements for our 11 year old Golden, but they are awfully expensive - other options report similar ingredients and are much cheaper, but seem heavily promoted. Is there a reliable resource or reference that separates the noise from science, and otherwise advises on options that are healthy, high quality and safely made?
