  • Environmental Health Issues In Our Community

    I hope this has been a very fun and eventful summer for you and your families as much as it has been for me and my family. June started out nice and July came in with a heat wave. The beginning of August was not a respite from the heat. The warm summer months bring many environmental issues (and complaints) to my office’s attention. In this article, I will explain some of the countywide environmental health issues as well as a change in our yard waste collection policies that will start in January 2017.
    Mosquitoes are one of the more annoying insects we have to deal with in the summer months. Though they may seem like just an annoyance, these insects can carry many types of serious...

  • Thunderstorm Mayhem

    It's summertime, and you know what that means — thunderstorms! The flash of lightning and the boom of thunder, combined with the loud winds, are enough to send anyone, man or pet, into hiding. Storm phobias are common behavior conditions that cause significant suffering for pets and the families who love them. Without appropriate treatment, it can worsen with time, severely affecting your pet’s quality of life.
    While some dogs will be triggered only as the thunder starts and recover as soon as it ends, many will experience suffering that expands outside the weather event. Especially upon repeated exposure, certain pets will begin to experience the symptoms of thunderstorm...
