Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes- Travel Animal Doctor

Travel Animal Doctor here, eager to share my vegetarian and vegan recipes with you, as well as ones that I come across that look good. When I got married it was the summer of my 2nd year of veterinary school. Becoming a veterinarian is no easy task. That summer, as I did every summer, I was working at an internship.  My husband and I decided to have a destination wedding in order to get married quickly without having to worry about a lot of planning.  The one thing about having a destination wedding is that we did not have much family there with us.  As a wedding gift my mother had all of our family members write a vegetarian recipe for my husband and me. The result was a wonderful organizer full of delicious looking vegetarian and vegan recipes written and signed by family members. I have been a vegetarian for years, and was a vegan for two years.  This organizer meant a lot to me. Not only did it help me feel accepted for my lifestyle choice by my family, but it also helped me to feel as if everyone was there with us in spirit for our big day. According to the USDA, the majority of Americans spend 67 minutes a day primarily just eating. This is often also when we can spend quality time with our families and friends.  Eating dinner with my husband is one of the highlights of my day. I get so much gratification from these vegetarian and vegan recipes and am eager to share them so that others can enjoy them too. Please...

Endangered Bobcats- Travel Animal Doctor

Before veterinary school, Travel Animal Doctor worked as a zookeeper, cleaning up after endangered bobcats and various other zoological animals. minicooper93402 / Foter / CC BY On a regular basis she cleaned up a bobcat habitat for three months. In veterinary school Travel Animal Doctor had the opportunity to work in zoological medicine with various exotic species. Veterinary internships and school allowed Travel Animal Doctor continued education with big cats. Travel Animal Doctor believes that endangered bobcats, and conservation of bobcats is an important topic that has not had significant public awareness. Bobcats are considered endangered by the Endangered Species Act in New Jersey and in Mexico. In the 1990’s they were popularly trapped and hunted for their fur and killed by farmers. It has been listed that there are 249 captive bobcats and between 750,000 to 1,020,000 left in the wild. Bobcats who are too habituated with human contact will lack necessary hunting skills and will starve in the wild. Bobcats are predators to small animals and can consume small pets with ease. Their normal diet consists of rabbits, birds and deer. In most states it is illegal to own a bobcat without proper licensing.   Owning a bobcat is a commitment and financial responsibility, and returning them to the wild once they are grown will cause undue suffering and death by starvation to the once pet. It is the most advantageous for all parties involved not to own a bobcat. Re-homing a bobcat may not be possible. Bobcats are quite destructive inside a house, and if captive require specialized veterinarians for pet/veterinary care who are comfortable with working with the species. Foter /...
