Cats and Dogs and the Full Moon

A ten-year study comprised of case histories of nearly 12,000 dogs and cats showed significant effects of lunar phases on animal behavior.  Published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association the study found that during the four day period surrounding a full moon dramatic increases were seen in veterinarian visits by pet owners—a 23% increase for cats and a 28% increase for dogs. http://www.veterinarypracticenews.com/April-2009/Full-Moon-May-Bring-In-More-ER-Visits/
