Drought Causing Higher Concern with Foxtails?

Foxtails can be quite dangerous. Apparently, due to the California drought, they have become a concern early and the number of injuries has increased in the region.

VCA San Francisco Veterinary Specialists' own ER doctor, Dr. Allegra Bush, explains the dangers of foxtails for your dog on KRON 4 News.

  1. Totally believe it. I saw a foxtail WEEKS ago on Mort and it's not even "season". Could have been left over from last year, but I've never seen one in February before!

    1. Apparently because everything is so dry, so are the foxtails. Must suck, having to be so careful.

  2. Yikes, I'll be keeping a closer watch for foxtails. We're having a bad drought here in the Pacific NW already. Thanks for the warning.

    1. Those things are such nasty buggers. We don't have much of those here, fortunately.

  3. Those freak me out! I know a rottie who had to have minor surgery to remove one from his nose.
