Central Pet donates pallets of suppliesSeptember News

Looking back at what was posted in the August Rainbow Wags, I wish we did not have to write again about wildfires and the damage and destruction in Lake County. As this issue goes out, there are still over 10,000 residents evacuated from their homes, many not yet knowing if they have homes to return to, if their pets and livestock are okay, if their lives will return to some semblance of normal. Generally we keep the Rainbow newsletters positive and fun, but there is no way we can ignore or downplay this disaster in our community.

So, community becomes our bright spot. The community coming together – donations, volunteers, prayers, help. As a local business whose entire focus is the customers in our community, Rainbow Ag shares in both the heartbreak, and the rebuilding of that community. Rainbow is working with our vendors to provide needed supplies for those displaced by the Valley Fire. Just some of the donations coming in from Rainbow's vendors:

  • Purina Mills donated 24 tons ($21,000.00) of Equine Senior Horse Feed
  • Blue Buffalo gave 25 bags of cat food
  • VSI sent pallets of pet and horse supplies
  • Central Pet sent pallets of pet supplies
  • Elk Grove Milling provided EGM Senior horse feed

Purina Mills donates 24 tons of feedAnd more donations are coming in. Thank you. Rainbow is also working with two prominent local organizations to collect donations. Tax-deductable donations can be made at Rainbow Ag stores in both Ukiah and Kelseyville to SAFER, for the needs of horses and livestock, and to Lake County Animal Control for dogs, cats and other small animals. Local veterinarians are working overtime, helping care for injured and lost pets. A big thanks to all of them, especially Middletown Animal Hospital who are at "ground zero" in this effort. Rebuilding after this disaster will take time; support for the families who have lost everything needs to be ongoing. Rainbow will be here for the long-haul. We are part of this community and will continue to support the community.

Ask A Vet Pet Health Questions

Jeannette asks: Ursa's nose is very, very dry, so dry that it's cracking. I put very good quality lotion made especially for dogs with dry noses and it is not working. It looks quite painful. She drinks plenty of fresh, purified water and she only eats Taste of the Wild grain free diet. Please advise if you have any ideas. Thank you.

Hi Jeannette,
There are several disorders that can be related to a dry nose, particularly if there is any depigmentation or lack of lubrication to the eyes. Tests, including biopsies may be needed if it looks like more than just "dry skin" sort of a situation. It is unlikely this is food or water related, though sometimes a plastic bowl can be the culprit. High doses of Omega 3 Fatty Acids are always beneficial (WelActin) but take 2-4 weeks to make a difference. Also consider OTC Kerasol or Snout Soother by American Dog Co applied 1-2 times daily. If that does not work, you’ll need some veterinary help.
Best, Dr. Smith
