IN THE August 1960 issue of the Journal a paper appeared by J. Stratton, M.R.C.V.S., titled Framycetin sulphate in small animal practice (page 91). In the authors references he quoted a paper as Stratton, J. (1960). In press. This paper has now been published, with the following reference: Some observations on the use of Franiyce- tin (1960) J . roy. Army vet. Cps. 31, 125.
Facts and Figures about Dogs in the U.S.A.
The following item is reproduced from J . Amer. vet. med. Ass. (1960) 137, 36.
THE canine population, now estimated to be about 26,000,000, is growing twice as fast as the human population. Some 18,000,000 families own a dog or dogs (more than 3,000,000 homes have 2 or more). Between 3,500,000 and 4,000,000 pups are born annually, and the sales volume may be running as high as a million dogs a year. The estimated annual dollar volume of purebred dog sales is about $25,000,000.
The annual sales volume of the dog industry as a whole probably exceeds $500,000,000, including the $350,000,000 spent last year on prepared dog foods. No less than $25,000,000 a year goes for toys, shampoos, brushes, leashes, collars, and other accessories. Dog licence fees total about $35,000,000 a year, and costs of medical care, including both veterinarians fees and medications, come to about $120,000,000.-From Consumer Report, July 1960.
