Are you feeding the birds? Please read!

CONTINUING AVIAN MORTALITY EVENT IN NORTHERN/NORTHWESTERN VIRGINIA

In late May, wildlife managers in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky began receiving reports of sick and dying birds with eye swelling and crusty discharge, as well as neurological signs. More recently, additional reports have been received from Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana. While the majority of affected birds are reported to be fledgling common grackles, blue jays, European starlings, and American robins, other species of songbirds have been reported as well. No definitive cause(s) of illness or death have been determined at this time. No human health or domestic livestock and poultry issues have been reported.

The Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR) has been monitoring the extent of the event in the Commonwealth since late May. The Virginia areas affected by the mortality event include the following counties and cities: Alexandria, Arlington, Clarke, Fairfax, Falls Church, Fauquier, Frederick, Loudoun, Manassas, Prince William, Shenandoah, Warren, and Wi******er. Between May 23 and June 30, the DWR received over 1,400 reports of sick or dying birds from the affected areas. Approximately 450 of the reported cases described eye issues and/or neurological signs.

The natural resource management agencies in the affected states and the District of Columbia, along with the National Park Service, are continuing to work with diagnostic laboratories to investigate the cause(s) of this event. Those laboratories include the USGS National Wildlife Health Center, the University of Georgia Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study, the University of Pennsylvania Wildlife Futures Program, and the Indiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory.

The following infectious agents have not been detected in any birds tested, based on results received to date: Salmonella and Chlamydia (bacterial pathogens); avian influenza virus, West Nile virus and other flaviviruses, Newcastle disease virus and other paramyxoviruses, herpesviruses and poxviruses; and Trichomonas parasites. Additional microbiology, virology, parasitology, and toxicology diagnostic testing is ongoing.

Birds congregating at bird feeders and bird baths can transmit diseases to one another. Therefore, the state and District agencies recommend the following standard precautions:
• Cease feeding birds in the affected areas until this wildlife morbidity/mortality event subsides ;
• Clean feeders and bird baths with a 10% bleach solution (one part bleach mixed with nine parts water), rinse with water, and allow to air dry;
• Avoid handling birds unless necessary. If you do handle them wear disposable gloves. If picking up a dead bird, place an inverted plastic bag over your hand to avoid direct contact with the bird; and
• Keep pets (including pet birds) away from sick or dead wild birds as a standard precaution.
• If at any time you find multiple dead birds in your yard over a short period of time, regardless of whether or not there is an ongoing bird mortality event, it is prudent to clean feeders and bird baths with a 10% bleach solution.

If you encounter sick or dead birds, in Virginia, please submit an event report at https://dwr.virginia.gov/wildlife/diseases/bird-mortality-reporting-form/. To dispose of dead birds, place in a plastic bag, seal, and discard with household trash or alternatively bury them deeply. DWR will alert the public when the mortality event has concluded and bird feeding can be resumed in the affected areas. Additional information will be shared as diagnostic results are received.

[06/12/21]   We are beyond excited to welcome you back into the clinic!

We really appreciate your patience during the pandemic as we work to fully re-open.

Phase 1 is set to begin on Monday, 06/14/2021. During Phase 1 we will see half of our scheduled patients in person in the exam room and continue curbside care for the other half of our scheduled patients.

For all our staff and clients to feel comfortable a mask covering your nose and mouth is required while you are in the hospital. Staff members will be wearing masks while working with you and your pets and we are limiting in person visits to one (1) human family member. Our exam rooms are big but still feel small when more than 3 people are together.

The exception will be for families saying their last goodbyes to their pets.

Technician appointments will continue to be curbside during Phase 1.

For those of you that are not ready to come into the hospital with your pet we are happy to accommodate you with continued curbside care.

Upon arrival, please call us @ 703-435-8777 so we can maintain traffic control throughout the hospital, keep up with the additional cleaning and maintain a “Fear Free” practice with limited staffing. Please wait in your car or outside until your doctor is ready for you and your pet. A staff member will invite you and your pet into the hospital.

Providing “Fear Free” care is so important for all our patients and requires the reduction of stressful interactions between pets in our reception area.

This pandemic has been difficult on everyone, and we have really appreciated all the kindness, patience and support from all of you, THANK YOU!

Please remember this is temporary and we are working towards easing restrictions in Phase 2, stay tuned!

A Dog Foster Mom’s Backyard

This is my back yard. At least part of it. It needs mowing but even with mowing it’s mostly dandelions, little purple weeds and other weedy things. It has big holes from dogs digging and old fencing surrounding and in it.

If you walk about you must be careful because you may trip on a dog bone or step in a neglected pile of dog p**p. I used to be embarrassed about it but now, well, I’m proud.

The yard is filled with plants that provide incredible nutrition (in concept but we wouldn’t eat it for obvious reasons) and the weedy-ground cover is as tough as nails. It is just perfect for all the homeless dogs that have come through our house, the ones we foster until they either get adopted or cross over to where so many other dogs we have fostered have gone.

The holes were dug by dogs that were enthusiastically loving that moment or moments, when they decided digging a hole was the most joyous thing to do.

That yard has seen dogs that were saved... precious doggy souls that bless us with their simple yet loving selves. They’ve romped, played, explored and pounced happily alone and with each other, knowing they are safe, protected and loved.

No, my yard isn’t a carpet of lush, green, perfectly-tended grass. My yard is love.❤️❤️❤️

A reminder as the weather heats up! I often see Frenchies, Bulldogs and Pugs out in the hot sun. They are panting but that doesn’t mean they are getting enough oxygen, heatstroke happens in an instance!

⚡️ Keep them cool at home during the hottest hours
⚡️ Exercise early morning and late evening
⚡️ Have a “what if” plan. Where is the nearest emergency vet? Get to the vet ASAP!

Have you seen new wild neighbors popping up in your area? Preparing for the arrival of the Brood X Cicadas should include your pets and area wildlife too!

For pups: Cicadas might look like a tasty treat, and while not poisonous, if your dog eats them in excess can cause upset tummies, so it's safest to stick to dog-specific treats instead. If your dog has been eating cicadas, once the brood as passed, check in with your veterinarian to make sure your dog is checked for parasites the insects might have picked up during their time underground.

For wildlife: Cicada netting around trees can pose a danger to wildlife who may get tangled and stuck. If you have a concern about a wild animal, you can contact Alexandria's Animal Services at 703.746.4444.
