Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center Hosts Annual Dental Clinic for Horses

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.

Dog Training Tip - how to keep your large dog inside its wire portable fence.

Dog Training Tip - how to keep your large dog inside its wire portable fence.

It happened to me when I rescued a mistreated Doberman. This large girl dog was skinny, neglected, and oh so hungry for love and care. And boy could that dog jump.

I bought a new five foot high wire enclosure, the portable kind, and placed her in the living room so I could watch her - she needed confinement and did not take to a crate of any type. Well, the first thing she does is jump over and out, not once but several times. This is never going to work.

So, I solved the problem by placing a long board across the top of the enclosure and on the board put several metal dog bowls. The next time she tried to jump out, the board fell, the pans clanged, and the noise startled her. That did the trick, she no longer tries to escape as long as the board is on top. The board works fine because I can remove it easily - this is one possible solution. I don't use shock collars in training and try to be as creative as I can in solving problem dog behavior.

Primates More Comfortable at the Folsom Zoo Thanks to La-Z-Boy Owners

Primates More Comfortable at the  Folsom Zoo Thanks to La-Z-Boy Owners

Two small primates named Darwin and Wallace will spend their days a little more comfortably thanks to Jim and Liz Reego, owners of the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries.  The Reegos, whose daughter Grace volunteered at the Zoo this past summer, recently donated $2,500 to the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary to provide a more safe and enriching living space for the adorable macaques.  

"Grace came home after her shift at the Zoo and told us about Wallace who suffers from epilepsy and often falls suddenly," said Liz Reego, "We all decided that we wanted to help him have a more comfortable and safe life.  Since we don't make recliners quite that small, we asked the Zoo what could be done."

The upgrades will include demolishing old man-made rocks, adding sand for them to play in as well as installing more play and climbing structures for both macaques, who have been at the zoo for a long time, to enjoy.
