It's Foxtail season! Have you checked your pets?

Foxtails are the seed pods belonging to a native species of grass that can be found throughout Placer and Nevada county. When your pet walks through grass these seed pods have a sharp tip that often gets lodged in between the toes, sinuses, ears, eyes, and into the coat of the animal. If not removed quickly, these can get into the skin and cause pain and infection for your pet. If you think your pet has a Foxtail, call us!

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "When we first moved to Colfax, we needed veterinary checks for our teacup Pomeranian and three cats. The staff at CVH was wonderful! They took their time with us and went over all the options to help us provide the best veterinary care for our four-legged family and still be able to pay our monthly bills. Best vet around and if you take your pets here, you'll be glad you did!"
