* Ok, there are a few small ads at the bottom of the main page, BUT Top5 Pets directly benefits from them. We keep them unobtrusive.

                     NOTE FROM THE LIST VET:

      In the news recently was a story of a man shot in the
       ankle by his dog, who somehow managed to put his paw
      on the trigger of a loaded shotgun. The victim admits
       to feeling like a fool, but we're here to speculate
           that it could have been much, much worse...

          The Top 9 Worst Ways for Your Pet to Kill You

9> Smothering you with a 40-pound bag of store-brand kibble.

8> Leaving a doggie present on the bathroom tile so you slip in
    it, careen into the toilet and die with your head right where
    you never let him drink.

7> First your ferrets hide your nitroglycerin tablets, then they
    steal the remote control.

6> By actually obeying a command. Well, the shock would kill

5> Sawed-off shotgun. (Neutered males only.)

4> Tossing you into a brick wall, slamming you down on the floor,
    ripping out your heart and leaving a bloody trail back to the
    goldfish bowl.

3> Starving to death waiting for the pet snail to fetch the
    morning paper before you eat breakfast.

2> Replacing your Folger's crystals with odor-controlling
    scoopable litter.

      and the Number 1 Worst Way for Your Pet to Kill You...

1> The famous and deadly "Doberman Pinsch."
