  • RUMINATIONS:The Number One Disease of Dogs and Cats

    The most common disease that will afflict almost every one of our pets is dental disease. Fortunately, it is one of the most preventable.

    The many forms of the disease lead to infections and/or inflammation in the mouth which cause pain and can lead to problems in other organ systems such as the liver and kidney.  

    Since kidney failure is one of the leading causes of death in cats, anything that will minimize the progression of kidney damage in our feline friends will add considerable time and quality to their lives.

  • Katko deserves support

    Katko deserves support

    Dear Editor,

    Removing Mountain Principal Mike Katko is outrageous. He is dedicated, loves his job and the students and only wants what is best for them.

    When are we going to remove politics and pettiness from our schools and replace it with care and concern for the students.

    The people trying to remove him should be ashamed.
