There are many reasons to get a dog (because your kid keeps bugging you for one?) but becoming more healthy doesn't usually top the list. Maybe it should. A new study finds that dog owners not only get more exercise by walking their dogs but they tend to be more active overall.  The study examined 5,902 responses from the 2005 Michigan Behavioral Risk Factor Survey. Of the 41 percent who were dog owners, 61 percent of respondents said they walked their dogs at least 10 minutes at a time and 27 percent said they walked their dogs at least 150 minutes a week.

Don't tell anyone, but we have fleas. Indicative of the trouble in Los Angeles this year is the complaint of Montebello veterinarian O.W. Estafanous. "We never had a worse problem," he said. "We used to spray the dog once a week and he'd be OK. Now we are spraying the dog more often and we have a worse problem." But veterinarians and researchers have a message for pet owners: Not to worry, they say. Most of the commercial remedies--the dips, powders, bombs and shampoos--will make a flea flee.

There is good news and bad news for the beleaguered Los Angeles Animal Regulation Department. The good news is that after more than a year with only one veterinarian to care for the 74,000 animals that come through the city shelters each year, the department hired a second vet last week. The bad news is that he quit the next day. "He was really not here long enough for me to get used to," said Dena Mangiamele, the department's lone vet. "What are you going to do?" Mangiamele said that Grover H.

Dominant Dancer, the classy filly unceremoniously bounced from the $500,000 Starlet Stakes 10 days ago for failing a veterinarian's examination, is being prepared to run against the boys this Sunday in the $1-million Hollywood Futurity at Hollywood Park. Her owners, Jamie Schloss and Yale Farar, must put up a late fee of $50,000 to run, but their trainer, Don (Whitey) Harper, says it is worth the gamble.

Jesabel is accustomed to only the best--Fancy Feast gourmet dinners, siestas on feathered pillows and a plush two-story kitty condo full of rubber balls and stuffed mice scented with catnip. A 7-pound princess with green eyes, a bushy tail and a shiny calico coat of nutmeg, black and white, Jesabel knows she's beautiful. She struts through our apartment with an air of entitlement, expecting to be fed in a meow's minute, expecting adoration the moment she plops before you.

In a setback for the veterinarian who examined Pal the pug, a judge Thursday threw out part of his lawsuit against Los Angeles animal regulation officials. The ruling that a search of the vet's office was legal leaves intact Dr. Mel vyn Richkind's defamation claims against the city, which are due for jury trial Monday. Richkind was the first veterinarian to examine the dog after its Encino owner found Pal near death, with much of his skin torn off in 1997.

November 5, 1988 | PAULA VOORHEES, Paula Voorhees is a frequent contributor to Orange County Life.
Analyst Lydia Hiby tells of a conversation with a young patient named Charlie about his first venture out of a very sheltered existence. He met three co-eds and one screamed, "Oh, my God! A snake!" Perhaps a normal reaction to an unexpected meeting with a 5-foot boa constrictor, but still very unsettling to Charlie. Until that time, you see, Charlie said he was unaware he was a snake or, for that matter, even what a snake was. "His owner didn't treat him like a snake," Hiby said.
