Battersea reports soaring numbers of French bulldogs

News Story 1
Chatter box Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has reported a stark rise in the number of French bulldogs being taken in to its care.

So far this year, the charity has already taken in 29 French Bulldogs. In 2014, it took in just eight across the whole of the year.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home says that most of these dogs have required intense veterinary treatment, with many needing specialist surgery to open their airways and shorten their soft palate.  Chatter box

Welfare event to discuss ethical dilemmas faced by vets

Students and ethics experts will host an event on the difficult moral challenges facing vets. Ethical issues, such as euthanasia and breeding animals for certain physical traits, will be discussed by prominent speakers including TV vet Emma Milne and RSPCA chief vet James Yeates. Other topics will include how to tackle suspected animal abuse and the extent of surgical intervention.

The conference will look at how these dilemmas affect the wellbeing of vets, and explore how to better prepare veterinary students for work. It will be held at the University of Edinburgh’s Easter Bush Campus from 30 September - 1 October 2017. Tickets can be purchased here.
