Microchip for dogs may be a must

Microchip for dogs may be a must NST, 9 Jan 2006 KUALA LUMPUR, Sun Microchip implants in pet dogs could become compulsory in 2008 if City Hall has its way in amending current laws over animal licensing. “If a dog runs away, or if other individuals claim ownership of a dog that is not theirs, this is where the microchip can be enormously helpful,” said Dr Norhayati Shaari, head of City Hall’s Vector and Pests unit. The microchip implant costs RM18, plus RM10 for the veterinarian’s service in injecting the chip. An annual RM10 licence fee will also be levied for registration purposes. Norhayati said since the launch of the programme in April last year, 131 microchips had been inserted into dogs.

Hip Dysplasia in Dogs

In recent time, we have observed that several dogs ( up to 10 so far ) that attended our dog training classes has Hip Dysplasia problem. It occur mostly to big dogs and in our case, quite a number of them are Golden Retrievers. Hip dysplasia is considered a hereditary condition and dogs with Hip dysplasia should not be used for breeding again. We feel sad to see dogs grown up to have Hip dysplasia and those who wish to acquire large dogs should pay more attention to Hip dysplasia problem and should take action to check more before acquire one. Precaution to be taken should at least include the following:- – Buy only from reputable breeder – Check with the breeder on whether the Sire and Dam (father and mother) of the puppies has Hip dysplasia problem or not. It is important to view the Sire and Dam to confirm this. Ask for X-ray record of the hip of the Sire and Dam if there is any. – Buy directly from the breeder and strike an agreement with the breeder that in the event the dog has Hip dysplasia, they should either replace a dog for you or compensate …

BeinSync

I have been using FolderShare for quite a while and found it to be extremely useful. However, the Basic Version which can be subscribe for free can handle up to 10 libraries and each library can synchronize up to 10,000 file. Hence I finally pay USD 6.95 to try out BeinSync for a month. After installing beinsync and has been running it over aa period of two weeks and I simply do not know why beinsync has merely synchronize some few hundred MB so far. On the other hand, foldershare has been able to synchronized up to 20GB of data troughout the same period. As such, I am not likely to continue the subscription with beinsync and wil continue to rely on FolderShare for remote synchronization. Hopefully, the Pro version of the FolderShare will be available for registration again in the near future.
