GIRL SCOUTS AND DONATED PET FOOD

Girl Scout Troop #55389, from Stillwater,  are shown here with the pet food they donated as part of our annual participation in the March FoodShare Drive.  The Scouts, we're told, did chores to earn money and then made a field trip together to purchase the food.  This is the fourth year Cedar Pet Clinic has acted as a satellite spot;  pet food donations go to the food shelf at Valley Outreach in Stillwater, to help families with the expenses of caring for their companion animals.  The donation drive closed on April 1.  

MAX IS ASKING FOR YOUR HELP

We continue to collect donations of all kinds of pet food as part of Minnesota FoodShare Month.  The food will go to the food shelf at Valley Outreach, which serves hundreds of families and seniors in our area.  They tell us that many families are hard-pressed to feed their companion animals.  

Max, an Australian Terrier rescue dog owned by vet tech Sue, is pictured happily perched atop our donation bin for all kinds of pet food, for all kinds of pets.  Drop off during business hours through April 1, and thank you for your generosity.  

CITY APPROVES CHICKENS IN SMALLER YARDS

Mhuett chickensLake Elmo's city council has approved raising chickens in city limits, after requests from the public.  According to the Oakdale Lake Elmo  Review,  up to four chickens are now allowed on lots as small as half an acre, increasing by two chickens every additional half acre.  A permit is required.  Staff modeled Lake Elmo's new rules off of those in Stillwater and Cottage Grove.  City clerk Adam Bell said at the council meeting, "There's a growing trend on keeping these animals in your backyard".

Veterinary care for pet chickens is one of the fastest-growing segments of our practice.  Many hobbyists and enthusiasts come to us because Dr. Baillie has been caring for pet chickens since the 1970s.  "People really enjoy their pet chickens," he said, "and they're wonderful for families for children."
