8 Coyote Safety Tips

Good Thursday morning!

If you haven't already heard, there have been some coyote sightings in Roswell. Here is some information about what to do and what NOT to do to keep you and your pets safe as these coyotes are searching for food, water, and new homes due to construction!

We hope you've had a lovely week, and stay safe!


As coyotes raise their pups, it's important to take some precautions in the outdoors.


Good Thursday morning! We are open today, from 9am-1pm then 2pm-6pm, if you need anything!

New baby report! My oldest daughter, Bess, gave birth to a 6 lb., 5.5 oz. beauty, Evelyn Margaret Miller (Evey) on Thursday night, 12/20/2012. pictures to follow. Merry Christmas to all!


Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and all appropriate holiday greetings. Work continues at the Barger farm, Cozy Green Acres, in preparation for winter. Here at the clinic, we are starting to decorate and get "in the spirit" for the celebration of the season.
Remember, there are dangers inherent in holiday festivities for our animal friends. Please see the list below for possible pet dangers this, and every, Christmas holiday season.

"People" food- love your pet by NOT giving him table food! Fatty, and spicy, foods ate the worst. Diarrhea is the standard reaction, with hemorrhagic gastroenteritis and pancreatitis looming as possibilities. All three, especially the last two, will land you in the emergency clinic; nice folks, doing a great job, but NOT where you want to spend Christmas! Pacreatitis can be fatal! Feeding a balanced, raw diet is , of course, the exception to this rule.

Ribbon, tinsel, string,etc.- When ingested, these holiday standards can wreak havoc with your pet's GI system, often becoming the dreaded "linear foreign body", which can tie up the intestines and saw holes at multiple points along it's length, causing an acute abdominal crisis, peritonitis, and death if not treated promptly. String used to truss turkeys, tie up roasts, etc, is attractive to the pet and should be disposed of carefully. Cats will start out playing and end up swallowing these items by virtue of the fact that they have trouble spitting them out due to the barbed nature of their little tongues. Clean up your mess!!! Non-seasonal addendum: dental floss, feminine hygiene pads, dirty underwear- I have extracted all of the above from the bowels of canine and feline patients, numerous times. Yeah, I know, yuk! But, animals have different standards than us humans!

Cheap toys- come on, guys, pony up for some good quality, safe pet toys! Opt for safe, quality, single toys instead of prepackaged "Christmas stocking" type gift packs, which generally contain a lot of junk, (read "express trip to the emergency clinic") toys. Do NOT leave toys that have a rope/string attached out for the pet to play with alone; these are for use with a responsible pet owner on the other end ONLY! Think safe, not cute; pets are largely color blind and oblivious to festively decorated gifts.

Alcohol- I once had a patient, a tiny Yorkie, presented at the emergency clinic where I worked, that had become severely intoxicated at a Christmas party. The little (three pound) guy was apparently sneaking around at he party slurping from drinks that guests had set on the floor between sips; he was seen enjoying a Manhattan at one point. He received IV fluids, and my close attention all night long. The owners were nice, well-to-do, Buckhead types who loved their dog, but just didn't think about this possibility. For Heaven sake, DO NOT give Fido or Fluffy any intoxicants on purpose!!! Not funny, not safe.

Chocolate- the only case of chocolate intoxication I have ever seen was a 35 pound dog that got into a Costco- sized bag (about 5#) of Nestle Tollhouse chips and ate "a lot" of them,per her owner. Symptoms, thankfully, were mild. More concentrated, darker chocolate (all the rage these days) is more toxic, bite for bite. Diarrhea, and possibly pancreatitis, are also possibilities. Chocolate intoxication can be serious, causing life threatening seizures, so have poochie checked if she eats a bunch. If the quantity consumed is small or unknown, then observe carefully and take her in at the first sign of termors, nervousness, vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity.

Christmas tree decorations- We've already covered tinsel, but there's a lot more. Ornaments, whether glass, wood, metal, or other, can become GI foreign bodies, with hooks, no less! Chewing through extension cords, light sets, and other electrical items- mainly a risk of bad burns to the tongue, lips, and gums, but can cause more serious problems such as cardiac arrest, fluid in the lungs, etc. young pups and kittens, not to mention bunnies and other small chewers, are most prone to this electrifying injury.

Finally, the good news. While I do not recommend letting your animal graze on them, poinsettias are a very low order toxic plant, requiring a huge ingestion to produce an intoxication. You should be OK so long as you don't pour Ranch dressing on your Christmas foliage.

Again, have a safe and joyous Christmas. Doc B


Hi, all , Dr. Barger here. We are getting ready for Thanksgiving at the Barger house, as well as building alpaca fencing and getting all the animal habitations ready for winter. Busy, busy!

Recently, we met a new patient, Petey, a 14 year old mixed breed presented for multiple issues, chief among them lethargy, difficulty getting up, tiring easily, and loosing hair (not good right before winter!). His owner came in fully expecting us to recommend euthanasia, but it turned out not to be that bad. With the benefit of a simple blood test, we determined that he was hypo (low) thyroid. He is currently benefiting from thyroid supplementation and treatment with our theraputic laser. His tail is back to full wag, he is bright and alert, and getting around much better. We expect to begin to see improvement in his skin soon, due to correction of hypothyroidism. I love old dogs and cats! It is really gratifying to be able to help them live their "golden years" in more comfort, and with a little more energy. WE should treat each other so well in our declining years.

The 5 crazy setters continue to practice pointing chickens and cats, and seem to like alpaca food pretty well. Claude Monet, the sheepdog, continues to occupy the canine throne, however. I hope that all of you take the time to thank God for all your blessings this holiday season. We have many to be thankful for, and you are all included!.......JB


thanks so much for my faithful clients for "liking" me on my new page. I look forward to communicating with you and the animal owning/loving public at large via this new (to me!) medium. Expect to see news about your pets, my crazy little mini-farm, my even crazier big family, etc. in days to come. Oh, by the way, I became a grandpa for the first time Wed. evening, Sept. 5, with the birth on Titus James Wetzel to my daughter, Sarah, and her hubby, Adam. He's a handsome boy, 6# 14 oz. Came out the hard way (C-section), but all are well tonight.

For those who don't know me, I am a vet of 33 years, husband of 28 years to my beautiful wife, Gia, and proud father of 12 great kids, ranging from 25 to 3, and now a grandpa! Our animal family consists of 5 English Setters, an Old English Sheepdog, 3 cats, 2 Huacaya alpacas, numerous chickens, and several small birds, lizards, frogs. etc. We also own Daybreak English Setters, a kennel (well, our house, really!) breeding and selling fine hunting line English Setters. Check out for more info. by for now.............Doc B
