First human-monkey chimera raises concern among scientists 
 

Efforts to create human-animal chimeras have rebooted an ethical debate after reports emerged that scientists have produced monkey embryos containing human cells.

A chimera is an organism whose cells come from two or more “individuals”, with recent work looking at combinations from different species. The word comes from a beast from Greek mythology which was said to be part lion, part goat and part snake.

The latest report, published in the Spanish newspaper El País, claims a team of researchers led by Prof Juan Carlos Izpisúa Belmonte from the Salk Institute in the US have produced monkey-human chimeras. The research was conducted in China “to avoid legal issues”, according to the report.

Chimeras are seen as a potential way to address the lack of organs for transplantation, as well as problems of organ rejection. Scientists believe organs genetically matched to a particular human recipient could one day be grown inside animals. The approach is based on taking cells from an adult human and reprogramming them to become stem cells, which can give rise to any type of cell in the body. They are then introduced into the embryo of another species.

Pet Dog Mauls Elderly Man, Bites Off Arm Flesh Leaving Bone Exposed 

 

A dog mauled an elderly man and ripped off a "chunk of his arm," leaving his bone exposed during the savage attack. The incident took place last week in a park in Derby, England.

Charles Brown, 82, was left bleeding after the attack carried out by a "black, muscular Labrador." According to local media reports, the owner of the dog fled the scene when it attacked the man.

"He’s had his injections, you’ll be fine," the owner said as he ran from the site. Brown managed to call wife Ann, 74, who rushed him to a nearby hospital. Doctors told him he would require a skin graft to repair the damage.

"The force of the dog was indescribable and it knocked me over onto my back. My lower body is all bruised, my back is twisted, and the flesh of my arm was nowhere to be seen... I don’t know if the dog ate it or not, but it was gone, I remember laying in bed that evening and noticing how much flesh was gone," Brown said, according to U.K.'s Metro.

Pet Dog Mauls Schoolboy In Park, 10-Year-Old Left With Deep Wounds 

 

A large dog attacked a 10-year-old schoolboy while he was walking in a park in Greater Manchester, England. The boy was mauled by the Doberman-like dog Monday.

According to local reports, the child was left with deep wounds across his back after being savaged by the canine. George Parker was found covered in blood and was rushed to a hospital. His mother, Catherine O'Neill, told the Sun that she was distraught after seeing her son was brutally attacked by the dog.

"He had blood marks all over him. He lifted his top up and I saw all the scratches and cuts," the mother told Manchester Evening News. "He said he'd gone onto the field and asked the owner if he was friendly. The dog was off the lead... The children said it was a black and brown dog. I phoned 101. He was crying and was upset. He was a bit quiet, which is not like George."

The mother also added that the owner of the dog left the scene when the attack took place, leaving her son injured. The 34-year-old expressed concern that the attack might make her son fear dogs for life.

How Often Should You Wash Your Dog? 

 

Most dogs don’t require bathing more than every two weeks, according to Mark D. Freeman, DVM, an Assistant Professor at VA-MD College of Veterinary Medicine.”If they live in a clean environment, sometimes that number is even less,” Dr. Freeman says. That’s partly why the ASPCA thinks you can get away with bathing your dog as infrequently as once every three months. Dogs that spend time both indoors and outdoors, however, are more likely to need bathing every two weeks because they’re simply more likely to get dirty.

IS IT OKAY, PSYCHOLOGICALLY AND OTHERWISE, TO HAVE SEX IN THE SAME ROOM AS YOUR PET? 

 

Though it would be just swell to own an adorable corgi named Waffles, there are several reasons why I elect not to have a dog right now. Namely, I am not even 1 percent responsible enough for that. I can barely find the time to take care of myself, let alone set aside some Kibbles ‘n Bits, reserve a dog walker if I want to be out past 6 p.m., take necessary precautions to ensure the pup isn’t in the room (and, thus, irreparably scarred) every time I want to have sex, or, if the pet does walk in on it, make sure they don’t try to get in on the action.

Oh, don’t act like this hasn’t happened to you, pet owners. Every friend of mine who boldly shares a studio or one-bedroom apartment with their fur baby has at least one story about how it walked in on sex. What I’ve never learned, though, is intel on whether they kept going at it. Which brings up an interesting question: Is it…bad, or unadvisable for any reason if you have sex in the same room as your pet?

Most Americans own a pet but can’t afford to pay their $800 medical bill 

 

Nearly 70% of U.S. households own a pet, according to the American Pet Products Association, and most pet owners enjoy lavishing their loyal companions with products and services to give them a better life. Overall spending in the U.S. pet industry is increasing at about 4% a year, up from $66.75 billion in 2016 to nearly $70 billion a year today.

Yet as likely as it is that spending will continue to increase, it is also likely that 1 in 3 of these pets will need emergency veterinary treatment within any given year.

Unfortunately, emergency treatment oftentimes runs upward of $1,000 and sometimes much more. And for many pet owners, the urgency is unexpected. Tara Falcone, founder of ReisUP, recalls how her Labrador retriever, Ruger, racked up almost $25,000 in medical expenses over four years — first, when he tore both his ACLs while chasing deer in the backyard, then after he developed a rare form of bone cancer and needed to have part of his jaw removed.
