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.

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.

The already-thin ranks of racing's 3-year-old colt division lost one of the season's most consistent performers Wednesday when it was announced that Pine Bluff has been retired because of a leg injury. Pine Bluff, first in the Preakness Stakes and winner of the $1-million bonus for the best overall finishes in the Triple Crown races, tore a ligament in his left foreleg during a morning gallop at Belmont Park on June 22.

For months, Nikki had been coughing, at times coughing so hard and for so long that it seemed she would never catch her breath. At 12--even in dog years, not a terribly advanced age--the fluffy, sweet-faced spaniel looked robust enough to give her owner every reason to believe that whatever was wrong with Nikki, it probably wasn't going to kill her. And so, week after week, they returned to the Vanderhoof Veterinary Hospital in Altadena in search of a diagnosis and, they hoped, a cure.

Night has fallen here, and the monkey doctors are having a party. The scene is a dinner-dance at a Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS where 250 veterinarians and researchers are letting off steam after two days of intense scientific discussions. With cowboy hats clamped to their heads, some down margaritas. Others venture onto the dance floor where a Texas trio warbles such tunes as "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "Redneck Mother."

During what should have been a routine spaying of a dog named Jasmine, something went terribly wrong. Stacey Herro, manager of the city of Los Angeles' North Central spay and neuter clinic, "came running out and said they'd almost lost the dog," said Phyllis Daugherty, then a clinic volunteer. "She was very worried about the dog." But Jasmine's owner, Phil Frierson, said that when he came to pick up his dog a few hours later, the clinic's veterinarian, Dr.

When he examines his last patient today, Dr. Dean Aberman will be doing more than simply ending his veterinary career of 32 years. He will be leaving an empty space in the lives of thousands of clients who have come to count on him as one of those few, reassuring constants. Aberman, 60, has been treating animals at Los Angeles Central Animal Hospital just north of downtown near Cypress Park since 1968, and his patient list surprises even him.

The good news is that after more than a year with only one veterinarian to care for the 74,000 animals that come through Los Angeles shelters each year, the Animal Regulation 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.
