Q: We're thinking of taking our active, friendly dog to doggie day care a couple of days a week. Are there any health issues we should be concerned about? A: For many dogs, a day or two each week spent at a well-run, clean dog day care center can be a great idea and great fun. Benefits include socialization and exhaustion: they get to play with pooch pals all day long, and come home so tired that they fall asleep on the car ride home - and may sleep the whole next day, too. And you'll get a little break from tending to your dog during day care hours.

A controversial proposal to build a large animal hospital in western Howard County appears all but dead after a two-hour County Council work session last night, but the veterinarian who wants to build it has not given up, he said. Councilman Allan H. Kittleman, the western county Republican who represents Glenwood, where the facility would be built, said he does not approve of building the hospital on land preserved as open space by clustering houses on one part of a parcel. "It is not appropriate," he said, adding that he will not try to amend a pending zoning bill to allow the hospital.

A customer crashed her sport utility vehicle into an East Baltimore animal hospital Wednesday, causing severe damage to the storefront but leaving all of the animals and staff inside unharmed. Mary Hall was bringing her sick dog to Eastern Animal Hospital Tuesday morning. While parking her Ford Explorer, she apparently became distracted and accelerated instead of braking. She broke through a brick wall and a large window and drove into the employees' lounge. She is OK, as is her 8-year-old West Highland Terrier, Katie.

Never mind all the naysayers who say newspapers are only good for kitty litter. From Annapolis comes proof that papers are also good for murder investigations, albeit by way of the litter box. On Monday, workers at an Annapolis animal hospital were shredding The Capital to fill kitty boxes - try doing that with the Internet! - when one of them spotted a photo of a missing SUV. Police were looking for it because it belonged to a man found murdered in Davidsonville last week. Looked just like the green Hyundai that had been sitting in the lot for the past week.

But Barbaro was rushed to the George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals at New Bolton Center. Housed on a former farm property, it is the closest major veterinary hospital to Baltimore and to home for the horse, trainer Michael Matz and the owners.

After decades of writing about medicine, I finally found the (nearly) perfect hospital. It was a gloomy Sunday afternoon last month. My little guy couldn't tell me what was wrong, but his breathing was labored, he wouldn't eat and he could barely walk. I took him to the emergency room, where the young doctor left no doubt that he was dying. Congestive heart failure, she said. Pneumonia, too. They took him straight to the intensive care unit. His cardiologist, Dr. Nancy Laste, began giving him oxygen, antibiotics and diuretics.

They were pummeled with shovels, smacked by snowboards and snowplows, lost for hours in snowdrifts and even shot. In the frenzied days of the recent snowstorm, man's best friend didn't fare so well. Local animal hospitals reported a surge in cases of frostbite, lacerations and paw wounds - made all the more painful because of the salt on the roads. A few had surgery for fractures or breaks. Such was the fate of Julie, a shepherd mix who suffered deep lacerations and a broken leg when her 15-year-old owner, John Doyle, snowboarded over her while on a daring jump on Ruxton's Circle Road last weekend.
