5 tips to ensure the best care for your pet

MISSION, KS /ACCESSWIRE/February 10, 2022/ (Family Features) The COVID-19 pandemic has placed historic pressures on the veterinary field and pet owners across the country.

These challenges impact patients, especially at a provider like VCA Animal Hospitals, which has more than 1,000 sites in the United States and Canada caring for more than 4 million companion animals each year. Consider these tips to help you navigate this new reality and ensure your pet has access to the care it needs to stay healthy.

Establish a relationship with a veterinarian. Establishing a relationship with a veterinary hospital means your pet will have a team to help them who know their medical history and can identify problems early to improve the chances of a positive outcome. Just like your own health, don’t wait for something to go wrong to see your pet’s veterinarian.

Make an appointment in advance and outside peak hours. The best appointments to book early include annual and semi-annual checkups, vaccinations, dental cleanings, and elective surgeries. If you’re not sure what appointments to schedule, ask your veterinarian. Booking your pet’s next recommended exam while you’re leaving your last is an easy way to find an appointment time that works best for you.

Have a financial plan. Veterinary care for unforeseen events and emergencies can often be expensive, as can human health care. Owners should consider the total cost of caring for a pet and create an emergency fund to use if something were to happen to your pet. Getting pet insurance or enrolling in a wellness plan are other strategies that can help ease the financial burden.

Know where to go for emergency care. It is important to know where you can take your pet in case of an emergency. Know where several emergency veterinary hospitals are located in your area in case your pet’s primary care physician cannot see you. You can also ask if your veterinary hospital offers tele-triage or other virtual care options. For example, through the myVCA app, you can access 24/7 live chat with licensed veterinary professionals to answer questions and offer advice.

Be patient. Veterinary medicine is in high demand. Remember that caring for pets is not just a career, but a passion for veterinary professionals. They work to ensure that you and your pets receive the world-class medicine and local care you expect and deserve, even with increasing patient numbers.

SANTA FE — The State House passed legislation late Monday that would cap the interest rate on small loans in New Mexico at 36% — the same annual percentage allowed by the U.S. Department of Defense for active-duty military members.

The measure would also allow for an additional 5% charge for loans of $500 or less, a fee intended to help compensate businesses for the additional risk incurred. It was added to the bill on Monday as an amendment sponsored by Representative Micaela Lara Cadena, a Democrat from Mesilla who described it as a compromise attempt.

The amended version of the legislation won House approval in a 51-18 vote.

The vote could represent a breakthrough after a similar measure died last year in a deadlock between the House and Senate.

Rep. Susan Herrera, an Embudo Democrat who introduced the bill to the House on Monday, said the proposal would help New Mexicans who are exploited by out-of-state corporations.

“These stories are poignant,” she said.

The legislation, House Bill 132, is now heading to the state Senate, which backed a similar proposal last year.

The bill would lower the cap on the annual interest rate – from 175% to 36% – for those who take out small loans.

Critics of the legislation have argued that lowering the state interest rate cap for storefront loans could put businesses out of business and leave their employees unemployed.

They also say such a policy change would push borrowers to seek out unregulated lenders.

House Minority Whip Rod Montoya, a Republican from Farmington who opposed the bill, said it would have a host of unintended consequences, like causing people in need to pawn their property for money. silver. Lawmakers should trust New Mexicans to decide for themselves, he said, whether to accept the terms of a small loan.

“The way I see it,” Montoya said, “is that we don’t trust certain people. We think some people are too unsophisticated, too incapable of making their own decisions for their own families.

Eight Republicans joined nearly all Democrats in voting for the bill. Two Democrats voted against the bill. The bedroom is the only independent one, Phelps Anderson of Roswell was a co-sponsor of the bill and voted in favor of it.

Message from Lujan Grisham

Even before lawmakers got into debating the bill, it was at the center of a procedural skirmish.

Rep. Eliseo Alcon, D-Milan, introduced a motion to send the bill to the Standing Orders and Order of Business Committee, the panel that determines whether a proposal falls within what lawmakers can adopt during a 30-day session.

The bill, he pointed out, was not specifically authorized by the governor and had been amended to remove his appropriation, a change that warranted sending it back to committee for further review. Tax and expense invoices are automatically authorized in 30-day sessions.

The legislation initially provided an appropriation of $180,000 for financial literacy programs, but the proposed spending was deleted at a previous committee hearing.

“We have to follow the rules whether we like the bill or not,” Alcon said.

But after intense debate over whether the bill should be sent to committee, Alcon abruptly withdrew its motion to send it to committee and no vote was taken.

Later Monday, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham formally authorized lawmakers to pass the bill.

years of debate

Proponents of the bill say out-of-state companies have moved into New Mexico to take advantage of low-income residents who need quick access to cash. Under current state law, they say, storefront loan companies target Native American residents of the state and low-income areas.

Additionally, a December survey of Latinos in New Mexico found that 19% of adults had taken out a storefront loan during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Herrera said the neighboring states of Colorado and Arizona already have a 36% cap like the one she is proposing. This is the same limit that is allowed for most consumer loans made to active duty military personnel under the Military Loans Act.

New Mexico has a long history of regulating the lending industry.

A previous 36% cap on loan interest rates was abolished by the Legislature in the 1980s amid high inflation, according to research by Santa Fe-based Think New Mexico, which has is pushing for the lower rate cap to be reinstated.

After years of Roundhouse debate, lawmakers passed a 2017 bill that established the current 175% interest rate cap on small loans and banned so-called payday loans with terms of less than 120 days.

But critics have insisted the 175% cap can leave low-income New Mexicans stuck in “debt traps.”

The Roundhouse debate has caught the attention of many national businesses who have hired lobbyists to represent their interests.

Small loan companies made $140,000 in campaign contributions to New Mexico candidates and political committees during the 2020 election cycle, according to a recent report by New Mexico Ethics Watch.

During last year’s legislative session, a credit industry lobbyist said the industry employs about 1,300 people across New Mexico.

“I don’t think you can write it any better than that,” linebacker Fred Warner said. “Just like the end of a storybook.”

Thomas stepped in when the 49ers needed him the most. San Francisco’s secondary was one of the biggest areas of concern for the team heading into the regular season finale, as much of the unit missed practice weeks due to being on the roster. Reserve / COVID-19. Week 18 was already predicted to pose a challenge to the 49ers defense as they faced a Los Angeles team that boasts some of the strongest and most capable receivers in the entire league.

Not only was Thomas tested in Sunday’s contest with the team’s playoff chances, but his performance was scrutinized throughout his rookie season.

Before joining the 49ers as the team’s third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the cornerback didn’t play football for all of 2020 due to a canceled season at the University of Michigan due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the first half of his rookie season, Thomas didn’t see the field much and only played 20 snaps in total for nearly three quarters of the season. However, the rookie was pushed into a bigger role after a series of significant injuries during the season for players such as Jason Verrett and Emmanuel Moseley.

“It was pretty hard to be inactive for all those games and keep my mind on the football and watch my guys play on Sundays and I’m not,” Thomas said. “It just made me work harder every time we trained. So I’m grateful for that honestly because it lifted me up.”

The rookie’s hard work and determination paid off as the 49ers gave Thomas a starting role starting in Week 14, including the regular season finale, before several veteran options. With the confidence of his coaching staff, Thomas won his biggest game of the year (and probably his young career) on one of the most pivotal moments of the 49ers season.

“Thomas definitely made me a believer,” Shanahan said. “I wouldn’t have thought he could have done it the way it started. It sounds a bit harsh, but it’s not. That’s a huge compliment. It took him a while , but when he had the chance… he was ready and he competed.”

The transformation from a tough rookie start to a reliable defensive back came to fruition after a shift in mindset. Thomas said after a year away from the game he needed to get back into “football mode”. Once his mind was focused, his performance followed.

“We corner, we don’t think the ball is ours. But no – if you’re there, the ball is yours,” Thomas said. “I look back on all the stuff I’ve been beaten on, and I’ve always been there. I just needed that ‘the ball is mine’ mindset, and it’s starting to come. More j ‘get more reps, the better I get.’

It’s been a long journey for the cornerback to find his place in the NFL, but he came at the right time. Thomas and the 49ers now have their sights set on the playoffs, where they will face the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday’s Wild Card round.

“I’m just really happy that we’re in the dance now,” Thomas said. “It’s all that matters.”

VERNON — Matt and John Ryan, who are twins, have played football together for 13 years.

Every Rockville High senior career moment and experience will culminate on Saturday afternoon.

When the Rams take on Killingly in the Class M Championship Game at Veterans Stadium in New Britain, it will be the last time the Ryans will be on the pitch together.

“It will definitely be sad,” Matt Ryan said. “But we will always have memories. We’ll always talk about it when we get together when we’re older.

The Ryans have done things together their entire lives, even from birth. John is only two minutes longer than Matt.

So it was only natural that they started playing football at the same time, around the age of 6.

“It was awesome,” Matt Ryan said. “John is my best friend. There’s nothing better than playing the sport you love with your best friend.

During their first two seasons at Rockville High, the twins saw limited action on the varsity team.

Entering their junior year in 2020, the Ryans were ready to leave their mark on the Rams, with Matt as the starting quarterback and John as the starting receiver and defensive back.

But the 2020 campaign was canceled before it started due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Like many athletes in the state, Matt and John have used their downtime during the pandemic to work on their skills.

Having a training partner under the same roof made things a little easier.

“Usually you would try to get a bunch of guys together,” Matt Ryan said. “But I had John. So we threw a lot in the garden.

John thinks having the guy toss the ball to him during games with him in the backyard was hugely beneficial.

“I mean, I probably had one of my best seasons yet,” John Ryan said. “I think it was because of that. Working hard over the summer and doing it for the 2020 seniors.”

John has been Matt’s main target this season, leading the Rams with 17 catches for 348 yards in 11 games. He has three touchdown takes. Defensively, John has 30 tackles and one interception.

“John literally gives you everything in his body on offense, defense, wherever you need him,” coach Erick Knickerbocker said. “He never complains, and just works his tail and does games that sometimes you don’t think a kid like John Ryan will do when you watch him.”

Matt is 79 of 186 for 1,164 yards and 12 touchdowns in 11 games. He also carried the ball 33 times for 120 yards and three touchdowns.

“For Matt, there were ups and downs because he didn’t have his freshman year to play quarterback last year,” Knickerbocker said. “But I’ll tell you what, he’s played as well as anyone at quarterback for the past four weeks.”

While John says the idea of ​​twin telepathy is fictional, he knows his connection to his brother runs deeper than the one he has with his other teammates.

“I know, and I can say this because I’ve been with him so much, what he’s feeling, what he’s going through,” John Ryan said. “I think he would say the same thing.”

But like in most families, sometimes there are disagreements.

“Sometimes I’m open on third downs and the ball doesn’t come my way,” John Ryan said with a smile. “But it’s teamwork. We find a way to do the job.

Seeing that brother dynamic, both positive and negative, play out was a joy for Knickerbocker, too.

“We’re not here without these two kids,” Knickerbocker said. “Good teammates, and it’s fun to watch them fight all the time. It’s definitely one of the funnest things because Matt will only really yell at John in practice. I’m having fun a lot with that.”

The brothers are at different stages in their decision-making process for life after high school. John narrowed down his college choice to three schools, although he didn’t say which ones. He hopes to major in business or economics and does not plan to play football.

Meanwhile, Matt said he has applied to many schools, but hasn’t heard back yet. He does not know what specialty he will specialize in, but hopes to continue his football career wherever he ends up.

But that’s the future. The two brothers know that there is still work to be done in the present.

“It’s been 13 years, and to top it off, going to the state championship is like a dream,” said John Ryan. “It’s like in the movies, you know?
