Do you like the "A-ha!" experience?

"Kenneth Berry, president of the American Academy of Emergency Physicians and head of PREEMPT, a counter-terrorism group based in Wellsville, N.Y., said military experts believe that a terrorist attack in a major U.S. city using a biological weapon is likely within five years." -Clinton sees little anthrax threat to civilians, By Steven Findlay, USA TODAY, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1997, pg8A

If for any reason you're worried that your pet may be subject to a biological attack -- or an outbreak of natural origin -- you can stock up on antibiotics available from veterinary supply companies. I understand BUT DON'T KNOW FOR SURE, that the veterinary supplies are equivalent to those prescribed for humans. To save your pet from such an event, YOU WOULD HAVE TO KNOW, OBVIOUSLY, HOW TO DIAGNOSE THE DISEASE AND HOW TO USE THE ANTIBIOTICS CORRECTLY.

For a preliminary idea of what to do for your pet (especially if he or she is human) should your pet be exposed, check out the manual by Larry Wayne Harris, the guy who created a furor over anthrax in Las Vegas in Feb. of last year:

- ~"America will continue to be a target for terrorism as long as it continues to play its current role in the world." -President Bill Clinton, in weekly radio address, reported on MSNBC, 8 Aug 1998 ~11:01
