I guess BHP is a stretch, I have only heard that name a few times. Thanks for checking though

TAKE YOUR PETS FOR REGULAR CHECK-UPS!
my cat died at 3 years old due to invasive kideny cancer. he was highly anemic and his kidneys and blood work were off the charts, the vet said it was the worst he's ever seen. we had to put him down that day. up untill then, he showed no sings of illness that we could recognize, however he was a ticking time bomb and only the vet could see it. we thought he was just muscular, but it was just his bulging kideneys. animals hide illness! he only showed signs the day before he died, before this, he seemed completely normal, healthy, and his usual self. his name was maxie and he was my best friend, because we thought he was healthy we didnt take him for check-ups but had we cought it earlier he might have had a chance. we learned from this, we should have paid attention, take ALL your pets for check-ups so they can be helped early on before its too late.

re: Some Common Abbreviations

You're welcome.....I see you're looking around...there's a lot of information in the archives, but too often people would rather post questions rather than take a bit of time to see if their answer is not already there.....

Maybe it's just their way of demanding personal attention.....

There's no ornithological 3-letter code designation for a Cuban Amazon parrot, but if you use Alfa codes under International Organization for Standardization (ISO) iso3166 alfa-2, you come up with CUA, the CU standing for Cuba & the A for Amazon & if you want to use alfa-3 standards, it would be CUBA, which would be a understandable misnomer.....

Since the first publication of ISO standards back in 1974, we have seen more and more notations of things being included under the ISO designation, so,if you wanted to petition the organization for recognition of the Cuban Amazon, that's probably what you would get.....

re: Some Common Abbreviations

In our house we have our own abbreviations for Hahnzel such as, LG- little guy, SLG- stinky little guy, and of course RSG- really stinky guy, which is usually used just before a "time out".

Actually, I found that an abbreviation of AT had been proposed, apparently for its Latin spelling, back in 2008, but I could not find where it had ever been accepted and published.....

I had the opportunity to sit in on an ornithological society meeting a good number of years ago.....definitely too stuffy for me...you almost had the feeling that they had written Robert's Rules Of Order.....they sure are not given to doing anything in a hurry.....
