Yesterday, USDA APHIS announced the ongoing development of one-page informational guides, called Animal Care Aids, about the ownership and care of animals. The first set of documents, which may be viewed here, focuses on identifying and managing periodontal disease and maintaining healthy coats in dogs.
The American Kennel Club appreciates and strongly supports USDA’s ongoing efforts to improve the health and welfare of all dogs in America. For more information about AKC comments on the Animal Welfare Act, see our official position statement on the Animal Welfare Act and AKC’s recent statement of support for additional resources for AWA enforcement.
