"Of the hallmark. I'm an emergent sign for cats with interstitial cystitis, which is a stress related disorder and preliminary evidence looks like they may be overrepresented. You mean up when it's certainly act, but it could be that these cats are more stressed out this past year. And Jennifer, as you're sort of completing adoptions at the S P C A. Do you give Thies new parents, uh, sort of different or additional instructions because of the pandemic. We do. A couple of we have support systems, you know, especially for people who have not had pets before either online or in person with our counselors. But we also counsel people about you know the demand on the veterinary industry at this point And really preparing for that. You know what we've experienced over the last years. And an inability Tonto work it capacity of vet clinics and here in the San Francisco Bay area, sort of being at near your capacity to meet the demand anyway, and so just a lot of more less about sort of behavior pieces because overall being with them more is a good thing in most cases. Especially for the dogs. But it's really planning their medical care during this time and Dr Bain, given the demand and the relatively low showing of the supply of animals. What are you hearing about where people are getting their especially like puppies from they going outside the country of the going to these So called puppy mills. I mean, what should people be on the lookout for? You know, First of all, we have to understand why people want these pets and the man often like Dr Scarlett said outstripped will weaken supply for them. And when that doesn't Happened. They have to go outside and a typical places and unfortunately, they may be reaching out to unscripted readers, or I mean outside the country. There are organizations that animals in front of the country and Pets were seeing. We're seeing some that are quite young in their presentation, so I wonder if Where they're getting the paths from Mrs having an impact. Even when you say they're quite young. I mean, they're too young to be, you know, being adopted and taken away from their mothers. Well, more so too young that were to be seen in our behavior service. Typically, the age of the pets that we see in our behavior service are 2 to 3 to four years of age, and we're seeing quite a number of dogs 89 months of age. Yeah, and Sherri. I'm wondering with the senior dogs that you're seeing, um, are ones that were harder to adopt. Or, you know, before the pandemic, are they more likely to go out the door with someone? Yes, that's such a good point. We had 91 dogs available for adoption on the day that we Started sheltering in place, and some of them were long term harder. Dog starts with diabetes or jobs that were blind and literally within the month. Not all 91 of them were adopted. And of course, we're getting new dogs in every day, So we had more, but people are are appreciating their animals, and I think that a lot of them during this pandemic may not want to make that. Really long term commitment of 15 years and get a puppy. But a lot of them think that an animal in their life is so wonderful. So you know, senior dogs have become more popular. I mean, that's what I'm saying. It must be a different kind of person. Cherie, I would think who is willing and able to get a senior dog. I mean, it's a really wonderful thing to do. But there could also be costs, you know, close down the road not too far down the road if they're older, in terms of veterinary costs, and so on. Well, we see what we do it at muscle. Anyways, we do a full nose to tail, check up with our veterinarians and make sure that we uncover anything that is clearly A health issues so that people can go into it knowing and we really, really talk through this with every single a doctor so that they know that there's a commitment there. But you know what? Young dogs get sick, too? And break legs and You know some of those things that older dogs might not do because they are, you know, running around and being as crazy so you no way all those cost money, and we want to make sure that people are in it with the commitment to take care of their animal. And Jennifer. It seems like everywhere you turn, you know there's there's something or other doodle You know, Labradoodle, Kaka toodle. I mean, Why have they become so incredibly mean? They're adorable. So that's that could be the answer right there. But why are there so many of those dogs Well, I think you I think you nailed it is one is there? Um, most of you know, that's the hybrid vigor, you know, crossing breeds and and months. One is there They're adorable. Their great size. Most of them have a terrific temperament. And if I can circle back to the puppy mill piece, you know what we what we are experiencing is a lot more dogs coming through. And I don't I can't quantify this is you know this is antidote, but Animals being shipped by airplanes. And I just want to caution, folks. We're not against responsible breeding at all in acquiring, you know, lovely doodle. Think E Here is we just hate for dogs on do cats live in misery because they're coming from Mills, and there's just no way to tell when you buy online and they're delivered by an airplane. On DSA. Oh, if you can, if you can drive and suss out, you know that. Yes, This is someone who is passionate about the breed and responsible. We think that's fantastic. There are still a lot of shelter animals that can be saved. Even though it's it's more difficult during.
