Calling all canines…High-tail it to the Mobile Pop-Up Dog Park in Midtown in August

Calling all canines…High-tail it to the Mobile Pop-Up Dog Park in Midtown in August

Presented by the Midtown Business Association, plans are afoot to have the mobile Pop-Up Dog Park set-up in a shady area adjacent to the Midtown Farmers Market on Saturday, August 20, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Back by popular demand, the Pop-Up Dog Park will also be accompanied by a number of special canine-friendly activities such as having the Front Street Animal Shelter on-site to promote pet adoptions and offer microchip services, volunteers providing obedience training, and interested vendors offering gift giveaways, selling pet-friendly “swag” items and more.

Created to increase canine-friendly interaction and help to nurture a strong sense of community in the heart of Midtown, the portable, sustainable and FREE Pop-Up Dog Park uses portable picket fencing and a double-gate system to ensure the dogs are secure inside the mobile structure. Due to the structural limits of the fencing, the Pop-Up Dog Park is designed for dogs 30 pounds or less.

PENRYN, Calif.  – The premier equine medical center in Placer County and surrounding communities is preparing to host one of its largest medical events of the year as it expects to be the dentist for more than 1,500 horses this December. Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center is bringing back one of its most popular patient service deals by offering half price dental service to horses.

Last year Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center welcomed 1,488 horses in December, examining and balancing their mouths to increase their comfort level and ability to chew their food.. Just like humans have their teeth filed down, cleaned or get fillings, horses need help keeping their mouths healthy too. A horses teeth keep growing throughout their lives, so by floating/filing down the sharp points and waves they develop over the course of their lives, Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center is able to keep the horses teeth balanced and not sharp, which can be painful for them.

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

SACRAMENTO, CA -- A Sacramento pug rescue group is reaching out to animal lovers in hopes of providing a much needed surgery for one of their precious pugs.  

Eight year-old Mija (Mee-ha) is a playful pug who loves to snuggle. She was rescued by PugSavers, a Northern California pug rescue group, after her owner, who loved her dearly couldn't afford special care for her diabetes. Mija's foster family has been taking great care of her until she finds her forever home, but recently her condition has worsened causing blindness in both of her eyes. 

It has been recommended by a specialist that both of Mija's eyes be removed to help with her diabetes and alleviate what has now become a painful condition.
