    Saw on the news last night about a dog at Bastion camp had got toxic poisoned somehow and is now recovering well, knew they had a fantastic medical unit out there, but did not realise they had a vets clinic as well, I think the report said that the army has about 33 dogs working for them there.
    A good book on animals at war is Silent Heros The bravery & Devotion of Animals in war by Evelyn Le Chene includes the story of sea dog Bamse, Stubby and Fleabite, Rob of the SAS. Chindit Minnie (mule) the one I liked best is Voytek of Monte Cassino (let you guess what animal that was)

    Speaking for the British Army if they have dogs in theater they'll have RAVC personel out there too as most of the handlers are RAVC. They are rather well looked after like Police dogs. They even get a Regimental No.

    Cheers
