Hello Temecula Valley! As we are nearing the end of our summer, we are still seeing cases with foxtails in our pets. These pesky grass awns have a nasty way of finding their way into ears, noses, in the mouth, under eyelids, and between the toes! They have also been reported to migrate into the body cavity burrowing their way into the spine. These are nasty plants! See some examples below:
If you see your dog shaking his head vigorously or scratching at his ear, or a swelling between the toes, or sneezing hard all of a sudden...these are good reasons to give us a call!
