for animal medical care. This is a special way of leaving a

Charitable Remainder Trusts are charitable gifts of cash,
securities, or other assets such as real estate which are put into
a trust. These assets are then invested to generate income, which
is paid annually to you and to the beneficiaries of your choosing.
This is another way of making a gift which provides you with
income for life.

reduced estate taxes make this an appealing gift option.

"In February 2000, Andy, my first born, a five and a half
pound Yorkshire Terrier, was attacked by a 100 pound Husky. At first, the
doctors thought his neck and back were broken. They wanted to put him down
but they soon realized that they would have to put me down at the same
time . .

"the devotion between people and the animals that we live with, care for,
and are cared by . . . "

5. The Natural Vet’s Guide to Preventing and Treating Cancer in Dogs by
Dr. Shawn Messonnier
While cancer is the second-leading cause of death in humans, it is the
number one killer of American pets. With this easy-to-use guide, holistic
veterinarian Shawn Messonnier, one of the nation's leading experts in
integrative veterinary medicine, presents the latest research on both
treating new diagnoses of cancer and preventing cancer before it takes the
lives of our beloved family pets.
After using conventional therapies for several years, Dr. Messonnier
became convinced that many pets that were not improving with lifelong use
of conventional medications might improve if some type of alternative
treatment were available. This desire to improve the quality of his
patients’ lives led him to immerse himself in the study of alternative
treatment modalities. Presenting clinical studies supporting these
treatments and his own extensive clinical experience where studies aren’t
yet available, Dr. Messonnier gives readers an objective and up-to-date
survey, complete with the pros and cons of each treatment, of all the
integrative options available for treating and preventing cancer in dogs.
