Your Monday awwwww!
Animals always bring us happiness. If we ask what brings you happiness? What would be your answer? For us, it is animals and just animals. Animals make us happy every time. They are cute, adorable and innocent. Little things that they do make us happy. From making a weird face to sleeping in the wei...
The struggle is real!
Things to think about!
They give their all to our pets, despite mental health struggles in the the field. But vets get shockingly little in return.

I'm often asked which insurance plans for pets are best.
We evaluated plans to help you find the best pet insurance. Some costs in owning a pet can be fairly easy to estimate, such as the cost of food. But possible pet medical costs are a large unknown. If your pet suffers an injury or illness, vet bills can unexpectedly run into the thousa

Happy Labor Day!
Dogs are a mix of everything we have ever wanted. They are chaotic, affectionate, fun, silly, and adorable all at the same time. What else could we ask from these adorable little furballs? I mean, a dog is perfectly capable of making your day by just being itself. He won’t need to try and do […]
We love frenchies!
I love my job!
Ever wondered what the perks of working with animals are? Let me tell you: they're furry, cute, super fun, and have four legs (most of the time)!
Enjoy the day!!!!!
Being a kitty is tiring!
This sounds like a great product and Shadow's Fund is a great rescue!

Giving medications to kitties can be a challenge. Some medications can be compounded to make it less so.
Milo came in for his recheck via space ship today. He is on antigens to treat his environmental allergies and is doing well!

Looking forward to meeting Rupert soon!
This little medical mess of a man was rescued from the East Valley/Los Angeles city animal shelter and oh boy, did he need "the works". Rupert appeared to be suffering from a lifetime of allergies, skin and ear infections.
First he needed a full blood panel, heartworm test, urinalysis, thyroid test, fecal/giardia testing and all the normal stuff that dogs over the age of five should get.
Next he had massively painful ears and an abscess on the side of his face underneath his right ear, from so much scratching. Rupert had a light anesthesia just for the vet to drain the abscess and do a culture on the ear bacteria.
Then once the abscess healed, and a few weeks of anti-biotics helped with the ear infections (they were still so swollen that our vet could not see down the ear canals).
Next up was Rupert's surgery day. He had a crypt orchid neuter surgery, a dental and the vet also tried to see down the ears again. After anti-biotics and steriods, the ear canals were still too swollen to get the stethoscope down.
So our vet suggested the next step is to go to the dermatologist. We have an upcoming appointment (in early April) with our favorite veterinary dermatologist, Dr. Greek in Santa Barbara. It's a far drive but Rupert is SO worth the top notch care that he will get with Dr. Greek.
The plan is for him to spend the day, go under anesthesia and get an ear scope procedure where the dermatologist will go down with a miniature camera to see everything that cannot be seen with a stethoscope.
Under anesthesia, Rupert will also be getting allergy testing. It is just like allergy testing that people get, where his skin will be pricked with lots of tiny needles, each with an allergen on the tip of it. The results of this allergy testing will give Dr. Greek the correct information for making Rupert his own custom Immunotherapy allergy drops. He will get these drops orally every day on an ongoing basis to help his body to eventually adjust to the things he is allergic to.
Rupert has run up some significant medical bills and now he needs a helping paw so he can go to the dermatologist.
Would you like to make a small donation towards Rupert? Donating is super easy, right here:
We had not listed Rupert for adoption yet but in a perfect world, we would like to find someone that is local in the general Santa Barbara or Ventura county area of California. (or Los Angeles area) We just want to find a local adopter who is willing to take him to all of his Dr. Greek rechecks over the next several months (Camp Cocker will sponsor this).
His ears are not going to be easy to manage and we at least want him to get the best of treatment with Dr. Greek.
You can read more about Rupert in his bio here:
Spread the word for Rupert and please be sure to tell any serious adoption inquiries to read the adoption process at:
I live in coyote territory. Note, it's their territory, I'm trespassing.
The next four to six weeks is mating season for coyotes. Please do not let your pets out alone. Coyote breeding typically peaks in late February and early March, the gestation period averages 58 to 63 days. Male coyotes can become more aggressive during this time of year, the long and short of it all is that coyotes always pose a risk to your dog (and other small pets). That risk increases during mating season.
Coyotes are pursuit predators – they chase their prey, they don’t “lure” or “ambush” prey. They need to eat and survive. They are beautiful, good parents. Watch your pets, you are their parent.

This is a nation wide problem and we are trying! I would add that intakes longer to see each patient because of Covid policies and that it is harder to call the clinic because we are spending more time on the phone helping clients.
A client’s cat became sick one recent Sunday. She called five local veterinary emergency clinics but none were able to see her. COVID has taxed the veterinary industry in a way we haven’t seen before. In a short amount of time, the pandemic created the perfect storm of too many animals needing h...

This is a huge issue in our area. The one preventive I would add, is consider having the hair cut off furry paws so you can see the evil things before they become a problem!
