Donโ€™t forget about our senior citizens this Holiday season! This old fella is probably 14-15 years old and he was relinquished at shelter today. A Good Samaritan saw this sweet, toothless Gerhuhua (= geriatric chihuahua) and couldnโ€™t stand to see him abandoned.
Weโ€™re working together to ensure heโ€™s healthy and can live out the rest of his years happily & loved.
#FunFact toy breed dogs have relatively large teeth & tongue in their oral cavity in comparison to medium or larger breeds. This plays into why toy breeds are more prone to dental disease and why some of their tongues always hang out their mouths. A toy breed missing teeth is even more likely to have tongues always out like my lilโ€™ buddy here ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜›

#wildfires are affecting everyone and everything! Federal biologists are now concerned about the #California #Condor populations...
FYI, this gorgeous captive condor canโ€™t go back in the wild because of permanent wing damage but sheโ€™s doing great as an ambassador for her amazing species.
The good news is that the #santaana winds are finally slowing down and the brave California fire fighters are beginning to contain the wildfires. Pray for #California with me and have a nice weekend!

Feeding cats multiple, smaller meals a day encourages a healthy, helps support metabolism as opposed to 1 large meal a day. I recommend portioning out the total amount of food recommended for your catโ€™s size into 2-3 daily feedings. My kitties know their schedule and are always begging for their @PurinaOneCat food when they wake up and as soon as I get home from work. Learn more about how to build whole body health for your cat with @PurinaONECat through the link in my bio. #ad #PurinaONECat #cat #catfood

I LOVE working with wildlife like this #bobcat ๐Ÿ˜บ. And if you live in Southern California near the fires please know that the native wildlife needs your help too!

Please keep your domesticated animals/pets indoors as there may be a lot more wildlife entering private properties. Please also leave out buckets of water for them because theyโ€™re exhausted and stressed out and in need of the basics like water and shelter!
FYI Iโ€™m repairing a bite wound on this bobcat-several fur-filled lacerations that needed to be flushed and surgically closed. Trapping fur or anything under the skin that doesnโ€™t belong is not ideal and can lead to infections and abscesses. This cat recovered well and is hopefully being a successful little predator in the wild.
Thanks for helping your local wildlife and stay safe if youโ€™re near any fires or warning zones!

These Santa Ana winds arenโ€™t letting up either and Southern California bodes a very flammable landscape. My heart goes out to all those people and animals losing their homes!

How lovable are these Galapagos Tortoises at the @sandiegozoo ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ˜ป
Theyโ€™re thee largest tortoise species in the world!
On the notion of zoos-do you like them? When it comes to *good* zoos, I say YES! -๐Ÿข- Did you know that good zoos do SOO much for wildlife conservation around the world!
A lot of people think zoos are bad or it's not ok to have exotic/wild animals in captivity but being in the animal profession I'm here to share why theyโ€™re so important-follow the link in my Bio to todayโ€™s YouTube video. -๐Ÿข-
I explain all the reasons good zoos are so valuable for the conservation of our wildlife. Of course there are bad zoos that don't contribute to the greater good and yes, some species probably never belong in captivity, but overall-I strongly believe in the importance of zoos. If you donโ€™t see it that way then I urge you to watch this video. I hope you can learn something here and gain a better perspective on what quality zoos really have to offer.

I love seeing the bonds that can ensue with 2 totally different dog breeds living under the same roof. This pug & husky are besties! And guess whoโ€™s the boss...the pug of course ๐Ÿ’โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ
Itโ€™s also fascinating to see the โ€œevolutionโ€ (aka selective breeding) of dog breeds that has led to members of the same species (Canis lupus familiaris = scientific name for dog species) having drastic variation in physical form, behavior, and intelligence. -

From a medical standpoint, the notion of selective breeding has led to many โ€œimperfectionsโ€ among pure bred dogs. EVERY dog breed has a predisposition to at least one health concern. German Shepherds, Bulldogs, Wheaten Terriers, Chihuahuas, you name it-they all have some โ€œbaggage.โ€ As a dog parent you should investigate these predispositions and consult your local vet about them. -

I love ALL dogs, mixed-breeds & pure breeds alike but you should know that mixed-breed dogs are far less likely to carry predisposed diseases because of the greater variation in their genetics.
If youโ€™re looking to acquire a dog this holiday I also urge you to #adoptdontshop . Thereโ€™s countless purebred rescues as well as rescues & shelters with mixed-breed dogs. MILLIONS of dogs (and cats and small mammals, reptiles, birds, etc) need homes! And when youโ€™ve found your new best friend def consult their health with your local veterinarian.
Happy Holiday weekend โ˜บ๏ธ๐ŸถโœŒ๏ธ @conejovet

#KittehTerrorists make microscoping in our lab even more fun๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜ฝ
Both of these munchkins were recently adopted to good homes btw. Good, friendly cats make THEE best pets for those of you who donโ€™t know! Theyโ€™re self sufficient, litter boxes are easy to manage, they groom on their own, they donโ€™t need daily walks, and they just want to love & be loved (Iโ€™m a sucker for my cats when they flop on me and look into my eyes and start purring ๐Ÿค—โ˜บ๏ธ). Two important things play into cats being good & social:

1. Donโ€™t pull them from their litter mates too early, ideally not before 8 weeks old. These first 8 weeks are a critical period for a kittenโ€™s socialization skills.
2. Socialize them with people often! Have friends and new people interact with your kitten very regularly!
Best of luck if youโ€™re looking for a new feline friend and remember #adoptdontshop
IF YOU DONโ€™T LIKE CATS ITโ€™S BECAUSE YOU HAVENโ€™T MET THE RIGHT ONE ๐Ÿ˜‰

I grew up idolizing #SteveIrwin and learning & caring so much about wildlife conservation thru his passion for it. This animal-crazed Aussie did a real number for wildlife conservation around the world and was obsessed with crocodiles and venomous snakes just like me! I missed the boat to celebrate #steveirwinday recently due to some intense post-South Africa jetlag but still want to show my appreciation. Thank you Steve-O for making the world a better place for animals ๐Ÿค™

๐Ÿ™ŠThat one time a Lesser Bushbaby came to explore๐Ÿ’ He left the building just fine btw ๐Ÿ˜‰
These arboreal primates are extremely athletic and are in fact the smallest primates on the African continent. To me they look like the Love child of a Slow Loris and a Tarsier โค๏ธ. The Bushbaby is nocturnal and eats fruit, gum of trees, and insects.
One of the most interesting facts about Bushbabies is how males claim their females...by urinating on them...

#TBT at @greenwoodwildlife ๐ŸฆŠ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฃ. I was 19 years old and this was my introduction to wildlife rehabilitation! My title was the โ€œSquirrel & Raccoon Internโ€ over one Summer during my undergraduate education and I fell in love with Coloradoโ€™s native wildlife. -๐Ÿฆ-
Almost 14 years later and Iโ€™m so blessed to say that Iโ€™m still following my passions and getting to work with wildlife around the world!
I often get asked-โ€œHow can I work with Rhinos and Leopards and Anacondas like you?โ€ And my answer is-you have to start somewhere. -๐Ÿข-
Investigate in local opportunities to help wildlife and animals if thatโ€™s your interest. I think itโ€™s best to gain an appreciation & understanding for the wildlife in your backyard before anything else. It will gain you valuable perspective and act as a stepping stone if youโ€™d like to work with animals on the other side of the world. -๐Ÿญ-
Or you may fall in love with animals native to your geographic location and continue that path!? I STILL love working with Squirrels and Raccoons FYI โค๏ธ -๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ- #followyourheart #wildlife #rehab #rescue #conservation #vet #raccoon #squirrel #veterinary #nature #liveyourpassion #raccoonhands #babycoon
