Abstract:
The College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University offers emergency and specialty treatment to family pets. The animal hospital provides pet owners with an array of treatment options that didn't exist in the past, like chemotherapy for a pet with cancer. Pets arrive from in-state and all across the country. Because it is a teaching hospital, the pets receive a lot of attention from the staff. Nationwide, pet owners spend an estimated $9.4 billion on pet care annually. At NCSU, radiation treatment can cost $4,000 and a kidney transplant for a cat up to $10,000.

To date, only 56,000 of the state's estimated 2.6 million companion animals have been equipped in this manner.

Abstract:

The ruling was made after NC State was accused of accidentally killing a dog and the owner’s sued. Pet owners, Herbert and Nancy Shera will appeal the ruling. Their lawyer noted several mistakes that occurred during the trial and ruling and he is optimistic the ruling will be overturned.

Abstract:
A case involving a mistake by a veterinary clinic causing a dog’s death may have legal implications. The Industrial Commission in Durham will decide on the case later this fall and it could set a precedent for animal law in the state. The cost of how much a pet’s life is worth will be decided by the commission and will likely be the new standard for a pet's value in the state of North Carolina.

Illustrating the impact is statistics representing reality before and after Brother Wolf’s initiating efforts, 70 percent kill rate versus a 90 plus percent adoption rate.
