New Years Eve Rescue

New Years Eve Rescue

Martis Peak, Ben Visnye and Luke Markham were snowmobiling on News Year Eve and ventured into less explored territory.  They spotted a small dug out hole containing a very cold and stressed small dog (Seamus).  After calling the dog’s owner on his tags, the two Kings Beach locals rushed the dog to Donner Truckee Emergency Vet Services for possible frost bite and exposure related problems.  The article is a great account of Seamus’ treatment and reunion with his owners.  He had been missing for 5 weeks!

Dog Safety Tips for Memorial Day

Like many Americans, you may be planning a festive Memorial Day, complete with barbecue and fireworks. It’s important to remember, fireworks and dogs don’t mix. Unlike people, dogs won’t associate the noise, flashes, and burning smell of pyrotechnics with a celebration. Fireworks will often cause panic and anxiety in dogs. It’s important to remember that dogs panic at the sound of fireworks and flee into the night, often winding up lost, injured, or killed. Keep your pet indoors at all times, if possible. Use Pet Friendly Repellent. Don’t give your pet table food. Source: http://tiny.cc/4x14ex      ...
