TRAILER LOADING TROUBLES?

We are available to come to you and work with your staff and "difficult" trailer loading horses and ponies.  We have a systematic, proven method of helping horses overcome their fear or obstinance about stepping up on that trailer!  It's a process, and it actually has nothing to do with the trailer. If you or your organization would like to set up a training day, contact us to arrange a date.  We are also able to provide training dates with our own horses and trailer to give you a hands on clinic as well.

AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (AVMA) GUIDELINES ON HUMANE EUTHANASIA

We are providing you with a link to this document in its entirety. AVMA GUIDELINES ON HUMANE EUTHANASIA.  There is important and valuable information on the do's and dont's for most common species of animals.  Also, attached is a SUMMARY OF STATE LAWS governing euthanasia of animals.  Please take note: the language regarding the use of firearms as a means of destroying an animal is not "carte blanche," i.e. complete freedom to use a firearm to destroy an animal simply because one wishes, as the use of a firearm, as well as other means, could be a violation of the Title 18, Chapter 55, Subchapter B-Cruelty to Animals, depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding the incident.  Please also refer to the Animal Destruction Method Authorization Law.  

THESE LAWS ARE PA SPECIFIC !!  Laws vary state by state !!
