(Staff Photo) 1. What Is your opinion about the feeding of horses during the winter? I have been crilicized for nol feeding my horses but (he man who sold Ihem lo me said thai during Ihe winter (hey could pretty much provide for themselves, What do you Ihink? i My authority on horses says that he firmly believes in heavy winter feeding. In his opinion, it is easier and cheaper in the long run lo keep horses in good shape throughput the year rather than trying to save money on feed during the winter. The latter often makes a horse very vulnerable to disease. 2. Can you suggest any "toys" thai might be good for a gerbil? Metal or wood objects are good toys for the gerbil and they also keep his teeth short and healthy. A gerbil's teeth grow constantly during his lifetime and if (hey grow unchecked he'll starve to death. He'll be his own dentist if you furnish him with metal cr wood "toys." 3. What is the Chartreux cal? The Chartreux is a breed' of domestic cat which is making a comeback from near extinction. The breed was known in FYance for centuries but has been very limited in number even there since World War II. The cats were introduced into the U.S. in 1970. They are sometimes called the "blue cats of France." 4. What are Ihe qualifications lor being a veterinarian In Ihe Department of Agriculture? The applicant must have a degree from a recognized Yelenparycollege.or university. As a part of its recruitment · program for veterinarians, the Department of Agriculture maintains a network of college recruitment representatives -- who themselves are veterinarians -- located at or near all of the veterinary colleges in the U.S. These representatives meet with junior and senior classes each year lo explain the opportunities for careers with the department. 5. How much does il cosl the taxpayers for public animal shelters? Is Canyon County Pet Haven a public shelter? Canyon County Pet Haven is not a public sheller. II is supported by memberships and contributions. The only estimate I can get for you on your first question is that each animal that goes through a public shelter costs the taxpayer 520. I found this figure in the Zero Pet Population Growth Booklet. 6. What did you Ihink of the American Pet article In a recent issue of TIME magarine? I found it very interesting but quite one-sided. I wrote to the editors of the magazine suggesting thai they visit a few animal shelters and then write an article on Ihe other nine- tenlhs of the animal population.
