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, between the toes...I've even removed one that migrated up the lady parts of a female dog! 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!
