Your daily dose of clinical tips and quips: Pet relinquishment.
“Some veterinarians think that the animals entering shelters are not their patients. But in a national study of people relinquishing dogs and cats to animal shelters in four regions of the country, 70% of those relinquishing a dog and 50% of those relinquishing a cat reported having taken their pets to a veterinarian in the year preceding the surrender.”
