A PSA from your friendly neighborhood vet clinic:
Recently there have been a handful of videos making their inter web rounds. These videos depict pet owners smearing peanut butter on a plastic wrap headband to distract their pets while trimming their nails.
While we fully support the theory of yummy food distraction for less than fun procedures, we want to warn pet owners that this is NOT the ideal way to do it.
First, your pet is now directly at face level. If you were to accidentally cut too close and cause pain, your pet is now at a millisecond's reach to snapping at your face.
Second, if you have multiple pets, this is a potential risk for an argument over the peanut butter...again putting your face directly in the line of fire.
A better idea is to use a silicone mat on the floor, or one with suction cups against a wall. Or if you have another person available, have them distract with a kong or other type of food toy smeared with food or peanut butter. This gives you a "buffer" and a few extra seconds to move out of the way of sharp teeth should an accident occur.
While we appreciate that these people are just trying to help their pet's feel better about scary nail trims, there are definitely much safer ways to practice this!

🎉 MEET THE NEWEST MEMBERS OF OUR ZOO FAMILY! We are thrilled to announce that our 3-year-old female Pallas’ cat Mischa gave birth to four kittens on April 10 after 67 days of gestation!
The kittens were conceived through natural breeding with our male Pallas’ cat Bataar, and all were born in a comfortable nesting den off-habitat in the Zoo’s Predator Building. Mischa is a first-time mother and has been very attentive while displaying ideal behaviors such as nursing and grooming. In order to assess the kittens’ development, animal care and veterinary staff will closely monitor via a camera feed.
All four kittens and their mother seem to be active and healthy. Animal care and veterinary staff will perform the first visual check of the kittens when they are two weeks old and their first physical exam will be performed at eight weeks. At that time, care teams will be able to determine the sex of each kitten. Pallas' cat kittens start to open their eyes at about 20 days of age, and we expect them to emerge from the nest den when they are about one month old.
Pallas’ cats are near-threatened in the wild and their populations continue to decline. The birth of four kittens is impactful news for the broader Species Survival Plan (SSP) program and aids in the sustainability of the Pallas’ cat population. The Birmingham Zoo joins other zoos around the world in maintaining SSP programs through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), for cooperative breeding and conservation initiatives.
Mischa was born at the Columbus Zoo in May 2017 and came to the Birmingham Zoo in December 2017. Bataar, the father, was born at Utah's Hogle Zoo in 2018 and arrived at the Birmingham Zoo in early 2019. The pair was recommended to breed by the Pallas’ cat SSP, and they are both first-time parents.
Please make sure your pets are inside and have ID on them tonight.

Per the USDA:
If animals can catch the virus, can they give it back to people?
At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that any animals, including pets or livestock, can spread COVID-19 infection to people.
(Washington, D.C. April 5, 2020) – The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Veterinary Services Laboratories has confirmed SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19 in humans) in one tiger at a zoo in New York. This is the first instance of a tiger being infected with COVID...
