Pet Health

Hot Dogs

Zhang Yan knows everything there is to know about Pekinese dogs. "When I look into a dog's eyes, I can tell if it is sick, depressed, or in love." he says.

Zhang is director of the Beijing Pet Hospital north of the Third Ring Road, one of three pet hospitals in the capital financed by the government. Since 1992, when Chinese vets had their realm of activity expanded from dealing only with animals in quarantine to being able to treat household pets as well, Pekinese have become among the most frequent visitors to the hospital. Their growing popularity with Beijing residents is yet another indicator of the rising affluence of the Chinese middle class, who pay anything from 100 to 40,000 yuan for one of the little yellow creatures.
