Update: these two girls got checked over today! Looking good and one received antibiotics for upper respiratory. They are being cared for in a wonderful foster home ❤️❤️❤️

As some people may already know, there is a local (Winnemucca) hoarding case with many cats. We are working closely with the Humboldt Sheriffs Department, Animal Control, and multiple rescues. Many, if not most, will be removed very soon. In the meantime we have removed a small number already. Three of those have been or are currently being treated at Desert Trails Veterinary Services. Many have asked how they can help. Donations can be made directly to our Winnemucca Animal Rescue account at Desert Trails. Vet Care is always our largest cost. Any help is truly appreciated.

DEAR FRIENDS,

Record breaking heat is expected through the Labor Day weekend. Temperatures could spike over 100. Please be kind to your beloved pets and leave them at home during times of extreme heat.

In case you didn't know.........

Leaving your pet unattended in motor vehicle is a misdemeanor. Even if it's only for 5 minutes with the windows cracked and, you park in the shade. It's a big fat ticket at $305.00.

If you'd like to read the NRS for yourself here's the link:

https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Division/Legal/LawLibrary/NRS/NRS-202.html#NRS202Sec487

AND...

If you think leaving your CAR RUNNING WITH THE AC ON is ok, take a look at this Nevada State law:

NRS 484B.530 Unattended motor vehicle: Stopping engine, locking ignition and removing key. The person driving or in charge of any motor vehicle, except a commercial vehicle loading or unloading goods shall not permit it to stand unattended without first stopping the engine, locking the ignition and removing the key.

Heartbreaking update 💔

Sweet little Jessie is crossing the rainbow bridge tonight. Our precious snuggle bug, with her amazing spirit, when prepping for surgery, they discovered her tongue was basically hanging by a thread. This greatly diminished her prognosis, as without a tongue she would not be able to eat. The amazing staff at SVS is surrounding her with lots of love and care as she crosses. She is not alone and no longer in pain. I greatly appreciate their kind and very loving care for young Jessie. She has greatly touched everyone who met her and many who did not. Thank you for all the prayers, donations and support. I’m so sorry it was not enough to save Jessie, but in her honor we strive to save more. We could not do this with out you. Thank you to the amazing foster family that gave her so much love and care last night ❤️ I truly wish so much she could be healed with us, but instead she will be healed on the other side. 🌈 Our volunteers, including myself, will take some time to grieve and start work on the next animal that needs us. Thank you for your support and love. 🐾💔🌈❤️

Latest update post on our page 8:30pm August 10th, Monday.

Update: Jessie will have surgery ($1,300) in Reno and staying overnight at the hospital. Please pray.

I’m here with Jessie, waiting for this poor baby to be seen. They are giving her some pain meds to make sure she’s comfortable.

Jessie’s jaw is definitely broken, we still don’t know the extent of all injuries, but this sweet thing has the sweetest spirit, so we are really praying right now. She did ok last night, she has slept most of the time, very much wants to snuggle in and not be alone.

Donations for her care are immensely appreciated, as this is one of our more serious rescues to date. I will have more info on costs of care later. You can call and donate directly to Jessie’s care.

Thank you for all the support, prayers, positive thoughts and donations 💜💜💜

We are in desperate need of foster homes for young kittens and donations!

Do you have time and a spare room in your home?

We need foster families to help take in kittens, some are feral, some possibly sick with upper respiratory.

Vet care is urgently needed for sick kittens.

We cannot rescue without help 😞

We are in need of help! We haven’t been getting any donations in during the virus crisis. We need funds for veterinary costs. Our volunteers have been paying for everything until now and we need help ❤️ we have about 10 more spays and neuters done along with other necessary veterinary costs, check ups, tests, vaccines, etc.

Donations can go directly onto the Winnemucca Animal Rescue account at Desert Trails Veterinary Services. You can also donate here. Thank you so much!

We understand everyone has concerns and are trying to keep their families safe and healthy from the Covid-19 virus (aka Coronavirus). Many people are attempting to stop the spread of the virus by rigorously cleaning and sanitizing everything that they can. However, everyone should be aware that not all cleaning and disinfecting products are safe for our furry family members.

Not all disinfecting products are pet friendly. Many products ending in -sol (Lysol, Pine Sol, etc) contain a chemical called phenol which can cause liver damage in pets. Lysol gives off potentially volatile organic compounds in its v***r. Additionally, if your pet licks or ingests Lysol, it can cause serious chemical burns in the tongue or upper esophagus. Please be mindful as you disinfect your homes and keep the health of your animal companions in mind too. If you must use these products, wipe down surfaces with water after disinfecting to remove residue from the surface before your pet comes in to contact with it.

Desert Trails Veterinary Services

Dear clients,

With the recent announcement of the Nevada Governor regarding COVID-19, we want to reassure you that we are still open for business and here to help!

As a veterinary hospital, we are highly skilled in handling infectious disease and biosecurity protocols, and have thorough cleaning and disinfecting measures in place. We want to assure you that we are open as usual. We will continue to take precautionary measures to ensure our veterinary team and clients are not at risk.

We recommend taking the following steps to help keep our staff and clients healthy.

•Wash your hands: Please remember to wash your hands/sanitize before, during, and after your visit.

• Social Distancing: Please maintain a distance of 6 feet whenever possible. While we treat our clients and staff like family, in the current situation, we ask that we limit hugs and handshakes for the time being.

• Large groups: We ask that you do not bring more people than necessary with you to your appointment. Our staff is highly qualified to help you handle your animals, so please do not worry about having extra hands around to help.

•Drop off appointments are available to allow examination of your pet without waiting in the building. If your pet is in need of veterinary care and you are unwell, we encourage you to call our clinic and arrange for concierge service from your vehicle. 775-623-9133.

•Checking in and out: To reduce build up in the waiting area, we ask that we do not have extra visitors up front or for extended periods of time. We will do our best to get you the information/medications/dishcharges necessary in a timely fashion, to reduce the amount of wait time, and may ask you to wait in your vehicle to reduce unnecessary exposure.

We will continue to provide care for both large and small animals during this time, and take the health of our patients and clients most seriously.

Sincerely,

DTVS

Buddy is running low on his Insulin. Can we get some help with his medication cost and medical cost for other cats in need? ❤

Buddy also does best on a REAL meat, no fillers kind of diet. If you care to donate towards his diet, he does best with chicken that we can cook for him, canned chicken or high quality cat foods that do not have a bunch of fillers. You can contact us with questions anytime! 🐈

If there is anyone out there that would be interested in adding Buddy to their heart and home, he is still available. We know that many cannot take on a cat such as Buddy, however if that special person is out there... Buddy is a very special boy and would reward you with his love! ❤

Thank you all for your continuous support. With out you all, we could not help these babies.

Declawing is cruel.
01/21/2020

Declawing is cruel.

This handsome boy was recently adopted from Ky Humane. His new owners decided that he should be declawed. They only had him for 1 week and within that 1 week, they adopted him, cut off his toes and then abandoned him at another shelter because he wouldn't use the litter box. He is in pain. His feet are swollen and his refusal to use a litter box maybe a permanent behavioral issue that could put his life in jeopardy. Declawing is a horrible procedure that can effect cats mentally and physically. Do your research!!

Are you missing your male BLACK lab? Does he have a red collar? Tied with a white cord or some type of material? Goes by "KOLA"? He's at Animal Control.
I reported my dog stolen in November. He is micro chipped. I was just informed of who might have him. I've since moved to Reno. How do I get someone to go to the persons house that might have him to check and scan to see if it's him. And if it is how do I get him back?
I have a question. In November I reported my dog stolen. He is micro chipped. I was just told by a friend who might have him. I have since moved to Reno. how do I go about having someone contact the person who might have him and going out to the persons house and checking if it's my dog. And if it is how do I get him back.
