It can be very difficult to tell if older cats are in pain for several different reasons. It is not unusual for felines to lounge around, they are often very stoic, and they are great at hiding pain or disease. Since changes are often gradual and signs can be subtle, detecting there is an issue can be challenging.
More than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States, and more than 800,000 of these require medical attention according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Nearly half of these bites involve children, and children are far more likely to be severely injured. In order to raise awareness and focus on the importance of safe human-dog interactions, the second week in April is dedicated to dog bite prevention.
