Prosecutors will be permitted to use evidence seized from a barn owned by a Mount Airy veterinarian accused of mistreating two cows, a Howard Circuit judge said yesterday.Judge Cornelius Sybert Jr. ruled that a Howard County AnimaControl warden did not violate the constitutional rights of Richard John Burroughs by going to his barn three times in January 1992 to inspect the cows and seize evidence.Judge Sybert, citing rulings from several federal cases, said privacy laws apply only to a citizen's home -- but not to Dr. Burrough's barn in a vacant field about one-third of a mile from the veterinarian's house.

We have two cats, ages 13 and 17. One or both of them (we believe the older one) is leaving both urine and feces outside the litter box on an almost daily basis. We try to keep the litter clean and have no idea why he keeps on doing this. How can we retrain him?  This is a fairly common problem in cat households. Cats will go outside the litter box for several reasons. Visit your veterinarian to make sure there are no underlying medical problems, such as kidney disease, diabetes, urinary tract infections or other issues.

There's no doubt I demand more of a veterinarian than many people do. My vet has to be not only technically brilliant but also a good communicator, with a personality I can live with.In a pinch, my vet also has to help me move.Fortunately, I found such a vet years ago. Unfortunately, his practice is 25 miles from my house. No matter: He's worth the drive. I know my pets will get the best of care, in a caring, professional environment.Because I am so picky, I'm astonished by those who shop for a vet based on proximity alone, or on price, without checking further.
