Baseball fans are excited.  After three months of no baseball, mid-February is the time pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training, signaling the return of this great game and a new season. The 2015 cellar dwellers awaken with a renewed spirit and the champs defend their crown....

Exotic Pet Care
Monday, February 01, 2016
Love your lizard. Some people do -- we know great lizard and reptile owners in our community who provide the very best care, frequent handling, vet checks, roomy housing and proper diets.  And, they make a lifetime commitment to their somewhat unusual pets. On the other hand, we unfortunately see far too many people who make impulse pet store purchases, don’t know exactly what they are in for, then either become overwhelmed or bored.  At that point, they look to unload their neglected, under socialized pet on someone else. This week, our exotic animal room – the “Reptile Ramada” -- at our Center for Compassion is at capacity.  The room’s star is Tony, an Argentinian Black and White Tegu.  He was actually very well cared for and is quite social.  Tony is about two feet long and weighs close to seven pounds.  Question: what does a tegu eat?

Rodents Chewing Wires
Monday, January 04, 2016
I’ll admit it.  In the final hours of 2015, I’m dragging. It could be due to the long car ride home from Tahoe after a few days of playing in the snow with kids. Or, just a more general end-of-year malaise. ...

New Year's Resolution
Monday, December 28, 2015
It’s that time of year for getting over the holiday ‘hangover”, lamenting New Year’s Eve plans, coming up with resolutions when pressed and boxing decorations. Why do the light strands always ...

Rainy Days
Monday, December 21, 2015
Here’s a tip appropriate for our wet weather: help your dog overcome a fear of rain. Think of the rain as a training or socialization opportunity. Dogs who grow up without being exposed to much can develop fears. ...

Leash Laws
Monday, December 14, 2015
If you love ‘em, leash ‘em.  This was the unofficial motto of a longtime PHS/SPCA animal control officer. He knew all too well the dangers and possible ramifications of allowing dogs to roam off-leash.
