Thanksgiving pupEfforts are still ongoing to support families and their pets affected by the wildfires in Lake County.

Tax deductible donations may be made at either Rainbow Ag store, too.

Speaking of donations - Mendocino Animal Care Services holiday canned dog and cat food drive is on!

Vets from MAHSmoke Inhalation

By the Vets at Middletown Animal Hospital

Recently a reader asked if MAH could share some information about smoke inhalation in pets and livestock.

"Smoke inhalation" is a deceptively simple description for a process that is rarely ever simple or straight forward. Symptoms will vary on temperature of inhaled gasses, particulate matter inhaled, and inhalation of toxic gasses, in addition to burns. Many of these animals have corneal lesions also, so that needs to be addressed also.

Most animals will show an increased respiratory rate, and many will be coughing. Depending on the degree of damage, the animals may be lethargic or listless or even have neurologic symptoms.

The veterinarian will consider the following options:

  • Supplemental oxygenation as that will help speed up the CO elimination.
  • IV Fluids for hydration and to keep up with maintaining moist respiratory secretions.
  • Nebulization
  • Adequate systemic analgesia
  • When stable, bathe to get off caustic / toxic materials from smoke and soot
  • Stain the eyes looking for corneal ulcers and prophylactically keep them lubed as that is a common sequel in cats exposed to smoke inhalation and house fires.
  • Pending the degree of respiratory distress/compromise may need to consider adding in a bronchodilator or even a tracheostomy
  • Other medications may be needed depending on the findings and the response to therapy

There are not a lot of things that owners can do for animals until the veterinarian arrives: Move to fresh air; provide fresh water; burns can be lavaged with cool water; administer drugs only as directed by the DVM.

Dr Jeff Smith


Middletown Animal Hospital is still treating victims of the Valley Fire for free, both animals directly affected by the fire, and those owned by people displaced by the fire. Thank you all for your ongoing support. There is a GoFundMe account set up to help offset the expenses of this continued care. We appreciate your support. h24mk7qk
