This past Satur day Lowes held the, Lowess Build and Grow Workshop, in partnership with the Putnam County Sanitation/Recycling and Education. Lynn Wasdin, Karen Adams, Daniel Carle, Lynn Wasdin, Todd Adams and Kristen Michael were on hand to answer questions about recycling and also handed out information. Paula Blackburn and Debra Robinson were the captains of the kids clinic, in all they worked with at least 78 kids, educating them on the importance of recycling and also helping them to build recycling trucks made of wood. Patrick Kennedy, City Manager of Crescent City, recently received the Credentialed Manager designation from ICMA, the International City/County Management Association. Kennedy is one of over 1,300 local government management professionals currently credentialed through the ICMA Voluntary Credentialing Program. ICMAs mission is to create excellence in local governance by promoting professional management worldwide and increasing the proficiency of appointed chief administrative officers, assistant administrators, and other employees who serve local governments and regional entities around the world. The organizations nearly 9,000 members in 27 countries also include educators, students, and other local government employees. To receive the prestigious ICMA credential, a member must have significant experience as a senior management executive in local government; have earned a degree, preferably in public administration or a related field; and demonstrated a commitment to high standards of integrity and to lifelong learning and professional development. The City of Crescent City and Putnam County gave me the opportunity to pursue this career path. I am honored to serve my community in the public administration profession. said Kennedy. I felt I owed it to them, as well as myself, to pursue the ICMA credentialing. Kennedy is qualified by having more than 10 years of professional local government executive experience. Prior to his appointment in 2008 as City Manager of Crescent City, he served as Assistant City Manager for Crescent City and as the Director of Planning and Development Services for Putnam County. Kennedy has also made significant contributions to a number of other organizations, including: the Rotary Clubs of Palatka Sunrise and Crescent City, serving as secretary, fund raising committee chairman and president. He was also recently appointed assistant district governor for membership for Rotary District 6970. He has served on the Board for Putnam Habitat for Humanity for three years, currently serving as treasurer, and as an ex officio board member for the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce. For more information regarding the ICMA Voluntary Credentialing Program, contact Jenese Jackson at jjackson@icma.org; 202-962-3556. This months City of Crescent Citys Commissioners meeting was standing room only. The hot topic on the agenda was the submission of a written proposal from the Putnam County Sher iffs Office (PCSO) and the determination regarding how to move forward. The proposal was to provide law enforcement contracting for the City in an effort to cut cost in the Citys budget. According to the proposal submitted by the PCSO the City could save $173,817.89 in the first year and $167,473.89 in the following five years. Also stated in the PCSO proposal was the fact that last year, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Crescent City reported a 63% higher crime rate than equally densely populated communities of unincorporated areas of Putnam County. The proposal came as a result of the City Commissions request during budget meetings last summer, and if accepted, would have meant the closing of the Crescent City Police Depart ment (CCPD). In an email memorandum from the City Manager, Patrick Kennedy, to the City Commission, the proposal was received on Friday, April 4, therefore, neither the City Commissioners or the Chief of Police would have sufficient time to read and consider all of the issues before the Thursday, April 10, Commission meeting. Kennedy went on to state that he was not making any recommendations or advising any particular course of action on the issue, other than to state, that if the Commissioners intended to consider the proposal further, it should be the subject of a special meeting. The vast majority of the citizens that spoke were in favor of keeping the CCPD and not contracting with the PCSO despite the savings to the City and the 63% higher crime rate. Concerns over longer response time and the loss of the Citys control over law enforcement were sighted as primary concerns. After listening to the all concerns for and against keeping the CCPD, Commissioner Barbara Scholl made a motion to reject the PCSDs proposal. It was seconded and the Commission voted unanimously on the motion. The City Commis sion and the Chief of Police have agreed to hold a special workshop on Thursday, April 24 at 6 p.m. at the City Hall, to review issues with the CCPD brought up by citizens during the meeting and to open a dialogue regarding how the CCPD can improve upon the ser vices they provide to its community.

NonymousThats How I See ItA. Nonymous Out of Control GovernmentDear Editor: It is quite appalling that the editorial integrity of the Courier Jour nal has been debased to the point of allowing such cowardly drivel as has been printed the last few weeks authored by Anonymous. Men and women who put others above themselves, and who put democracy and liberty above all else, founded our great nation. There is a far more eloquently written document that has stood the tests of time, both good times and bad times, and has under girded the freedoms that set these United States of America apart from totalitarian dictatorships that seek to oppress the will of the people. Our country is a democracy because of the efforts of our founding fathers in laboring to set forth a process for government and in setting bound aries that were designed to provide for protection from single-minded ideologues and those who may seek to deny the will of the populace in favor advancing individual power over popular power The Constitution of the United States of American is a far richer and more inclusive document than anything that Anonymous and the band of fundamentalists, repre sented in his missives, will ever produce. Those who spew hatred and disdain for our present leadership, a leadership that was duly and fr eely elected by the majority of those who cast a ballot, tiptoe through the truth and hide behind veils of self-righteous piety and power. Yes, the 1st Amendment to that great document guarantees citizens the right to free speech and I will fight for your right to that until my dying breath. But, when the Bill of Rights was crafted, it was intended to protect the citizens of our country; citizens who came forward to exercise the right in civil discourse. The right does not extend to those who hide behind the cloak of invisibility, and to invoke that right for incendiary revulsion only strains even the best of intent of the framers of that cornerstone of our democracy. It seems obvious that Anonymous is but a walking shadow that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then will be heard no more. The changes that we have witnessed over the last 50 years in our country have been dramatic and the world as a whole is nothing like it was just half a century ago. Some would argue that it is better and others that it is worse, but there is one simple truth: you cannot rewrite history. And, try as you may, Anonymous, you and your band of narrow-minded, self-serving lickspittles will not dictate the future through demonstrations of misoneism. The democratic process has brought us to where we are today and through the power of the people and the selfless sacrifice of many, that same process that James Madison so masterfully defined in the later years of the 18th Century will carry this great nation through the 21st Century and beyond. The despotically, prejudicial and cowardly rhetoric of those hell-bent on denying the reality of progress and the will of the majority, will barely be remembered 50 years from now. For when the bell tolls next, it will toll for the ignorant and arrogant sycophants who cannot rise above hatred and accept what has already been decided. The election of 2008 was a pivotal point in our countrys history and in 2012, that event was solidified and fully consummated by the choice of the majority in returning the President to another 4 years in office. He is both my President, and yours, and it is time that you accept that and learn to live with the decisions made through the democratic process. And, to you, Madame Editor, in providing a voice for the odious coward who uses the penname of Anonymous, you are pandering to the vocal minority who seek to undermine the facts and realities of our time; they are merely using your publication as a bully pulpit. I would hope that you would step up to the journalistic ethic of excellence and force the nameless to come forward and debate their ideas in the light and openness of democracy. It is time for all involved to play fairly and to accept success and defeat with equal measures of grace and dignity. Sincerely, Susan N. Roberts Lake Como Dear Editor: I attended the Crescent City Commission Meeting to learn about the proposal from the Putnam County Sheriffs Department and the possibility of terminating our local Crescent City Police Department. Attendance was overwhelmingthe place was packed. They were standing up all along the walls and overflowing out the front door. The Mayor explained about the proposal and how they felt it would save the city money of their concerns, their personal dealings with the CC Police; their fear of being left with no local protection and having to rely on the Sheriffs Department; their worries about response time in case of an emergency, etc. Of the approximately 25 to 30 people that got up and spoke only one person, by my count, was for getting rid of our Police Department. At the end of all the discussion the Mayor thanked everyone and said they had heard the people. Upon further discussion among the commissioners, and a motion made by Barbara Scholl, it was unanimously agreed that the Sheriffs proposal be turned down and the Cres cent City Police Department remain. I felt like I had just seen democracy in action. It was r eally wonderful to see all of the people come together in a courteous, mannerly fashion and express their thoughts and have our commissioners hear us. I dont think this would have happened in a big city. Im so glad to be a part of Crescent City and our police-KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! Maureen A. Cooper Crescent CityNational Honor Society and Apple House IIIm going to need high blood pressure medicine if this administration keeps it up. This past week Eric Holder sat before the House Judiciary committee when Louie Gohmert of Texas made a comment to Holder saying, Contempt is not a big deal to our Attorney General. To which Holder commented, Oh you dont want to go there, buddy! The next day, Holder appeared on the Rev. Al Sharptons T.V show and in front of an audience, where he made the statement, You look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a house committee, it had nothing to do with me. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? In case youre wondering what Louie Gohmert was referring to when he made that comment, it was because for over two years now the House Judiciary Committee has been asking for documents to prosecuted terrorist. Holder was charged in 2012 with contempt for not supplying documents relating to the, Fast and Furious, gun running scandal. Not only have these documents not been given to congress by Holder but also documents relating to the Benghazi murders, the A.P scandal and many more. Wait isnt Holder the Attorney General, isnt one of his jobs to get to the bottom of crimes. Well heres a little message for you Mr. Holder, yes they have treated other Attorney Generals the same way they treated you, can you say Watergate? Really, why should we expect anything different from this administration? After all, Obama put Holder in charge of investigating himself! The thing that makes me madder than a hill of scolder ants is, these arrogant leaders thinking they are above the law, and then when they get caught with their pants down the first thing they scream is, Its a race thing. Look Holder that worked for O.J, but it wont work for you. I think the American people are getting sick and tired of you and this administration screaming, Race, every time you get caught in something. Oh and as far as your buddy, the Rev. Al Sharpton, he is one of the biggest racist to ever walk on this planet; maybe you forgot about the 1995 incident in front of, Freddies Fashion Mart, when those people were murdered because of his racial words. Did you forget about how he was screaming racial crap about Zimmerman, until he found out that he was Hispanic and not white. I am so sick and tired of our elected officials playing the race card, and for you Obama supporters, he is one of the worst! If I had a son Like Travon, give me a break! Here is a President who is half black and half white, a man that for the first time in history could bring both sides together, and what does he do? Yea I dont even have to answer that one, you already know the answer. The simple fact is, that the House Judiciary Committee is trying to get answers, not play a race game, but just on the outside chance they are, then I would like to ask you a few questions Mr. Holder, Where are the documents that prove you sold guns to the Mexican Cartel that killed one of our Hispanic border patrolmen not given to Congress? Where are the documents for the night of the Benghazi murders, when four of our American citizens were dragged through the streets and raped with electric cattle prods then murder? Where are the terrorist that killed these men, you know, the ones that are parading around on the evening news? People, Race is only an issue when people keep making it one, and our country will never get back to where its supposed to be until we all learn that what happened in our past history, needs to stay there. If my father was a criminal, it doesnt mean that Im one; if one of your relatives mur dered someone it doesnt mean you are a killer, and if all our recitatives were racist it does not mean that we have to fill their shoes. I say we vote out these idiot, race baiting wanna bes, and vote in some people who car e about what is going on in our country, and we all help each other out, and will someone please do me a favor, and shove a dirty sock in Al Sharptons mouth, he is not a Baptist preacher but a race baiting bigmouth idiot, trust me I know some Baptist preachers and they are nothing like you. Everyone has an opinion, and this is mine. You may not agree with it, but, Thats how I see it.

Market Place Breakfast at the Market Place in Pomona Park was last Saturday, which featured pancakes with strawberries and cool whip to help kick off the Catsh Festival. Three of our Elected Ofcials, Tim Parker, Property Appraiser; Tim Smith, Clerk of the Court; and Charles Overturf, Supervisor of Elections enjoyed breakfast and posed for a photo with King Catsh. Proceeds from the table rental went to the Rotary Club for scholarships. The Catsh Festival was great, and the parade was fun as usual. Our staff writer Travis Roberts covered the Catsh 5K and 10K runs very well, and took a picture of Mike Jones, Ryan Weaver and 309C with the bales of hay and the big yellow dog, Cracker on the oat. Thanks for the good work you do, Travis. Many people dont know that one of the people that started the Catfish Festival was Ronnie Hughes, former publisher/editor and at that time he may have even been the owner of the Courier Journal. He was the one who hired me 30 years ago to write for the paper. The festival has come a long way, and the Rotary Club has done a superb job. Gospel Music At Catfish Friday night Reverend Howard Cox and his group, and Eternal Vision from Tennessee played. It was good to see Kenny Biggs up on stage emceeing he looked healthy and happy, along with County Commissioner Larry Harvey helping out for the evening. Cutting-Up StrawberryThe Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall was overflowing with local residents, kids from the high school and some out-of-towners who plan on participating now every year. Donna Cooney inherited the Strawberry Shortcake booth taking over for Nancy Harris. This only the booth at the festival it also includes preparing the strawberries that make up the strawberry shortcake. The number of people it takes to accomplish this task is over whelming and thanks to all of the volunteers she had plenty of help and everyone had a great time. Party for Freida Two carloads of Freida Garlands friends from the Crescent City Womans Club joined Jerry Horner and Utah Bill McKendrick at the Moultrie Creek Nursing and Rehab Center in St. Augustine for a get together. Horner and McKendrick played and sang to the group of patients in there. Freida was very touched and delighted. Rev. Ralph and Deb Young from Howe Memorial Methodist Church were there, and Freidas sister and her husband from South Carolina came while everyone was there. Freida will be coming home soon. Sorry the number we had in the paper last week was ringing busy, so for those of you trying to reach her, they can call the Moultrie Creek Nursing and Rehab Center at 904-797-1800. Making Bedrolls The Methodist Women from Lake Como Church made bedrolls for the homeless. This year they made seven. Rolls are made from donated materials and tied with mens neckties. St. Vincent DePaul in St. Augustine distributes them.Lunch with the GreatsFirst in a series of programs, the Friends of the Crescent City Library Board presented Marilyn Swisher from Seville, who taught school for 13 years in Switzerland, France and Saudi Arabia. She spoke about her experiences teaching the children and servants of the Royal Family in Arabia. She lived with them in the palace and was totally responsible for the children. She had a yacht and private plane to take them on trips and vacations, and everything was paid for. She came home every six months for a month. For the presentation, she brought with her some items of clothing and interesting memorabilia. Mays meeting for the Friends of the Library will be announced later and will be the last meeting until fall. If you are interested in joining Friends of the Library, call President Susan Frazier, she would love to sign you up. Brother Visits Charles and Lois Slate from West Virginia came to Florida for nine days to visit Charless sister Norene, and to get away from the cold and snow. They enjoyed spending time in St. Augustine, visited Ravine Gardens, and met nephew David Slate and his wife at Gator Landing.

A gopher tortoise strolling across a road or through a backyard or eld is a common sight during spring in Florida. Yet as tortoises become increasingly active this time of year, they are vulnerable to being struck by vehicles and injured or killed. Dont forget to look out for these slow-moving reptiles with their bony-plated shells and elephantine legs. They leave their burrows in search of green plants to eat and a tortoise to become their mate. From now through May, females will be laying eggs the size of pingpong balls in the sandy apron outside their burrows. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission (FWC) encourages drivers to slow down on highways to help protect the states gopher tortoises. If a gopher tortoise is crossing the road, it is OK to pick it up and move it to safety but keep it pointed in the direction it was heading and do not put this terrestrial animal into the water. People also can help by downloading and using a new smartphone app to report to the FWC when and where they spot gopher tor toises. The free Flor ida gopher tortoise app recently became available on iPhone and Android. When users of the app take a photograph of a tortoise or its bur row, the photo and its GPS coordinates will be sent automatically to the FWC. App-generated data collected by citizen scientists will help guide conser vation of this threatened species. Biological information and a quiz testing the users knowledge of the only tortoise east of the Mississippi River also are included in the app. The FWCs Gopher Tortoise Management Plan spells out goals and actions to protect the tortoises, their burrows sheltering hundreds of other species and their habitat. Prescribed burning is critical to maintaining the sandy, open elds and forests, and the growth of soft-stemmed plants that tortoises need to survive. To access the management plan, go to MyFWC. com/Wildlife and select Managed Species.

A4 OUR TO WN Years Ago...75 years agoApril 19, 1989Fast Food WelcomedRemember when Steve Martin in the movie The Jerk went running down the street proclaiming, The new telephone books are here! The new telephone books are here!? Thats how south Putnam folks are going to react when they read the Hardees restaurant story on the front page of this weeks newspaper. A fast food restaurant in Crescent City is the biggest thing to happen in this town since dial telephones. Rank it right up there with the day the highway department replaced our once-blink ing caution light with a real stoplight with red, am ber and green lights. A major fast food franchise means our town has finally arrived in mainstream Americana. The kids will have a new place to hang out.25 years agoApril 21, 1939F.F.A. NewsThe Crescent City Department of Vocational Agriculture has been busy the past three weeks planting different veg etables in the land laboratory plot, located on Mrs. Essie Wilson s place directly back of her home. The boys have been performing such jobs as pre paring land, deciding what to grow, planting seed and plants, fertilizing and caring for the plants. At present the following things are planted: tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, string beans (pole and bush), lima beans (pole and bush), cantaloupes, water melons, pumpkin, corn and peppers. April 16, 1964Kills Coral SnakeShortly after the school bus had picked up 16 children at the regular stop in Georgetown recently, Mrs. Ferguson saw a coral snake there and immediately killed it. These snakes are very poisonous, and unlike the rattlers make no warning sound.50 years ago 10 years agoApril 14, 2004Educator Retires after 37 yearsVirginia Robinson walked into the lives of 750 children in her years as a classroom teacher. She did it with sophistication, dignity, a great deal of finesse, and the ability to instill the right values in young minds.

Stuart Reiter persuaded Burney to talk with the club, as club President Al Galton took a ribbing for trying to dismiss Burney too early.

I could not think of a better way to honor Dr. Collette than to sit with one of his patients while the caretakers Wes and Angie attended church together. Usually they take turns, one going to church while the other stayed home with Helen. Some of my memories of Dr. Collette were when we first moved here from Texas. Not many people knew about triglycerides, but Dr. Collette did. When our son, Dave and his wife, Linda, were visiting with Spencer and Matt from Texas. While putting Matt to bed we noticed a bite on his foot with red streaks running up his leg. I called Dr. Collette, and he said, Bring him to my house. After crossing the cattle gap behind his farmhouse office, we were at a loss as to which road to take to the residence. A speckled dog was standing in the road as if to say, Follow me, so we did, and he led us to Dr. Collettes house. Not having many young patients, the doctor did not have the correct dose of medication. He divided capsules into smaller por tions. Both David and Linda both looked at me as if to say, Are you sure about this? It worked! The next day Matt was fine. Their pediatrician back in Texas agreed with Dr. Collettes prescription. When my Mom from north Georgia came to live with us during the winter, Dr. Collette became her physician. One Sunday afternoon she started hemorrhaging from her incision from an operation. Rather than taking her to the hospital, Dr. Collette brought equipment from his office and cauterized the wound. Later we took her to his residence before and after office hours to avoid the long drive to Pierson where his office was located at that time. When it became difficult to get her into the car, he made house calls. For many of his patients, he would not charge and refused to accept payment, which he said would involve too much paperwork. Sometimes he would stop by on his way out to dinner. My Mom would always invite him to stay for supper. He would reply, Thanks, but my sweetheart is waiting in the car for me. After Mom passed away we brought the live plants from that people sent for his office and bought him a new lab coat. When Nick and I would see he and Mrs. Collette out at dinner, Nick would pick up their check. Thanks to Dr. Collette and Linda Holsapple (Hospice Nurse), my Mom received the best of care. His office staff, Janet and Darlene, were very special to him. After Joanne died he was very sad and lonely. When he and Dorothy got together he seemed much more content. Hopfully his children will be able to find a way to thank her for making his last year a better time. Dr. Collette and Dr. Suggs were quite different in personalities but alike in caring for their patients. Rest in peace, and God bless.A6 Beth CarterCommunity Contributor RA DIO SHOWEVERY THU RSDA PMWPLK 800 A WIYD 1260 AM Name: Address: Phone No: Email: Drop o ticket at the Welcome Center or at D.O.G.

Did that heading capture your attention? I hope so because thousands of dogs and cats are murdered each year, and the sad thing is, its not done on purpose. Over the next few weeks I will be doing a series on animals, mainly dogs and cats. I met with Doctor Daniel Grossman D.M.V, the Veterinarian at the Crescent City Animal Clin ic and asked him what would be a good sub ject to cover for the first article in this series. I expected Dr. Grossman to say, heart-worms or rabies but he said, Heat Stroke! So lets get started. The number of dogs that are reported to die from heat stroke after being left in a vehicle each year is 1,962, and this doesnt get into cats or birds or the number of pets not reported. When I write an article I try to get as much research as possible and its not all done over the internet. After my interview with Dr. Grossman I decided to drive through a WalMart parking lot, and see just how many people left their pets in vehicles. There were nine dogs total that I saw, and all but two had their windows down about three inches. Now before I did the inter view with Dr. Grossman I would have thought that would be alright for a few minutes but what I discovered next shocked me. I parked my vehicle and went into Wal-Mart and purchase a thermometer and returned to my vehicle. I cracked the windows about three inches and set the thermometer on the back seat, it read 82 degrees. After 20 minutes it had risen to 100, I then put my windows up, and within 10 minutes the temperature had risen to 116 degrees. Dr. Grossman told me that a dogs temperature is normally around 101.5 and when their temperature get around 105 degrees bad things start to happen. Dr. Grossman also informed me that certain breeds are more likely to suffer from heatstroke than others, these dogs are called Braehyceptialic breeds, and I hope I spelled that right. The breeds that are more prone to heatstroke are dogs with short snouts like, Bull dogs, Pekingese, pugs, Lhasa Apposes, Boston Terriers, and also dogs that are over weight or obese. You might be thinking, Im a good pet owner, I would never leave my dog or pet in a vehicle, but did you know that there are hundreds of dogs that die from heatstroke each year from their owners just exercising them. Dr. Grossman told me a story of a man who was told that his dog was over weight and needed to be exercised. Right away this man decided to take that advice and took his dog for a long afternoon jog. What this man tried to do to help his dog in fact killed it. Dr. Grossman said that when a dogs temperature reaches 107 degrees, brain damage starts to occur, and if youre going to exercise your dog, do it either ear ly morning or after the sun goes down and temperatures drop. Another thing Dr. Grossman mentioned was, dogs coming from a northern climate are more likely to get heat stroke than dogs that live here. In other words they need to be acclimated to our climate, which is something that doesnt happen overnight, so if youre going to take Rover to the beach then make sure to take an umbrella and plenty of fresh cool water with you. So what are some of the signs of heat stroke in your dog or cat? Watch for excessive panting, salivating and discomfort. As symptoms progress watch for vomit, diarrhea with or without blood in it, and your dog becoming disoriented or beginning to have seizures. If you see any of these symptoms with your pet, you need to: get them to a cool place, apply cool, wet towels to the back of their neck, in the armpit areas, the pads of their feet, the under flap of their ears and to the groin region. Also try to put a fan on your furry friend, and if at all possible use a rectal thermometer to make sure their temperature drops. The most important thing you can do for your dog or pet is to then get them to a veterinary clinic as soon as possible, because some damage might not show up for several days. Whatever you do, Never soak your pet in ice! I know that in our county we have a lot of responsible pet owners, and they would never do anything to intentionally hurt their pets, but we do have some people that will get a dog and put it on a chain, leaving it out in the direct sun with only a small bowel of water, and maybe they just think, Hey the dog will be alright. If you are one of those people let me ask you this question, How would you like to have a fur coat on with a chain around your neck and have to lie out in the hot sun all day with hot water to drink? If you do this to your dog then please give it up for adoption. Before I close I want to thank Dr. Grossman at the Crescent City Animal Clinic for his time and information. Dr. Grossman also wants me to say this, If you have a dog or cat, and you dont plan on breeding them, then please have you pet spayed or Neutered. Each year thousands of animals are put to death because of irresponsible pet owners. The last thing I want to add in here is, Winn-Dixie is running a program this month called, Feed the Love Program. Heres how it works, when you go to Winn-Dixie you will notice brown paper bags at the end caps. These bags have both dry and wet dog and cat food in them. You can pur chase one of these bags for $5.00 and they will be donated to our local food banks so that people who have fallen on hard times can feed their pets. I think this is one of the best programs that Winn-Dixie has ever come up with. I purchased two kits this week and I hope you will do the same. I want to thank Larry and Winn-Dixie for helping our needy during these hard times and also you for reading this article.If you are like me you have pets, they are a part of the family. I have cats, but I am an animal lov er in general. There have been times when my cats have wanted to eat some thing that I was eating and I wasnt sur e whether or not it would be safe for them. Surely many of you have been in the same situation with a pet, ei ther a dog or a cat, may be even something more exotic, but do you know if what you ar e giving them is safe? Some foods are dan gerous for both dogs and cats and some ar e specific. Please remember in any severe case; always contact your veterinarian immediately!!! Some that are danger ous to both are: Alcoholic beverages (Ethanol) Can cause intoxication, coma, and death. A vocadoAvocado leaves, fruit, seeds and bark may contain a toxic principle known as per sin. The Guatemalan type, which is most common in the gr ocery store, is one of the most problematic, and other types of avo cados can have varying degr ees of toxic potential. Birds, rabbits, and some large animals, including horses, are especially sensitive to avocados, as they can have respiratory distress, congestion, flu id accumulation around the heart, and even death fr om consuming avoca do. Avocado is sometimes included in pet foods for nutritional benefit. W e would generally not ex pect avocado meal or oil pr esent in commercial pet foods to pose a hazard to dogs and cats. Bones from fish, poul try, or other meat sourcescan cause lacerations or obstruction of the di gestive system. Chocolate, cof fee, tea, and other caffeinethe compounds in chocolate that are toxic are called theobromine and the caf feine itself. They belong to a gr oup of chemicals called methylxanthines. The rule of thumb with chocolate is the darker the chocolate the more dangerous it is. De pending on the type and amount of chocolate in gested, the signs seen can range fr om vomiting, increased thirst, abdominal discomfort and r estlessness to severe agitation, muscle tr emors, irregular heart rhythm, high body temperature, seizures and death. Grapes, raisins and currants-These have re cently been found to be toxic to both cats and dogs. The exact toxin has not yet been isolated but will cause kidney failure in both; symptoms that usually develop are vom iting, lethargy or diarrhea within 12 hours of inges tion. As signs progress, dogs become incr easingly lethargic and dehydrated, refuse to eat and may show a transient increase in urination followed by decreased or absent urination in later stag es. Death due to kidney failur e may occur within three to four days, or long-ter m kidney disease may persist in dogs that survive the acute intoxi cation. Macadamia nutsCon tain an unknown toxin, which can af fect the di gestive and nervous sys tems and muscles. Affected animals develop weak ness in their rear legs, appear to be in pain, may have tr emors and may develop a low-grade fever. Fortunately, these signs will gradually subside over 48 hours. Milk and other dairy productssome adult cats and dogs may devel op diarrhea if given large amounts of dairy pr od ucts. They are naturally lactose intolerant and do not have the ability to di gest it properly. Moldy or spoiled fooda wide variety of molds gr ow on food. Some pro duce toxins called tremor genic mycotoxins, which can cause serious or even life-thr eatening prob lems. The safest rule of thumb is to avoid feeding pets moldy food. In other wor ds, if you wouldnt eat it, neither should your pet. The signs of trem orgenic mycotoxin poi soning generally begin as fine muscle tr emors that progress to very coarse total-body tremors and, finally, convulsions that can lead to death in se vere cases. Left untreated these tr emors can last for weeks, but respond well to treatment. Onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder) Con tain sulfoxides and disulfides, which can damage r ed blood cells and cause anemia. Cats are more susceptible than dogs, but both are at risk. The toxins they contain dam age the red blood cells if ingested in suf ficient quantities. While it is un common for an animal to ingest enough of the raw vegetable to cause a pr oblem, the more con centrated forms such as powder and dehydrated types pose more of a risk. The damage doesnt be come apparent for 3-5 days and the animal may seem weak or r eluctant to move, or they may appear to tire easily after mild ex ercise. Their urine may be orange-tinged to dark r ed in color. In severe cases a blood transfusion may be necessary. TobaccoContains nic otine, which affects the digestive and nervous systems. It can result in rapid heartbeat, collapse, coma, and ultimately death. Xylitola non-caloric sweetener used in sug ar-free gum and low cal orie baked goods. In an imals it can cause a severe and sudden drop in blood sugar levels r esulting in disorientation and seizur es within 30 min utes of ingesting. Some animals that ingest lar ge amounts of xylitol develop liver failure, which can be fatal. Yeast doughwhen raw dough is swallowed, the warm, moist environment of the stomach provides an ideal environment for the yeast to multiply, re sulting in an expanding mass of dough in the stomach. Expansion of the stomach may be se vere enough to decrease blood flow to the stom ach wall, resulting in the death of tissue. Addition ally, the expanding stom ach may press on the diaphragm, r esulting in breathing difficulty. Per haps more importantly, as the yeast multiplies, it pr oduces alcohols that can be absorbed, result ing in alcohol intoxica tion. Affected dogs may have distended abdomens and show signs such as a lack of coordination, dis orientation, stupor and vomiting (or attempts to vomit). In extr eme cas es, coma or seizures may occur and could lead to death fr om alcohol intox ication. Specifically for cats there are a couple of things to watch out for. String can be a hazard for your cat, since they tend to enjoy eating it. This would also include ribbon from packages, tinsel, garland and plas tic from bags, etc. These things can cause intesti nal blockage that could r esult in the need for sur gery. Canned tuna is also something to be careful of. It contains levels of mercury that their small bodies cannot handle and if fed on a regular basis can lead to severe health problems. Not to mention it is not balanced nutri tion. Raw meat and eggs can also be a pr oblem for both dogs and cats due to the risk of Salmonella and E. coli. These can make your pet very ill with symp toms including vomiting and diarr hea, which can quickly lead to dehydra tion. Bottom line, it is best to feed your pet healthy pet food made especial ly for their nutritional needs and pr ovide plenty of clean fresh water to keep their urinary track in good health. It is my hope that you and your pets will always remain healthy and hap py, but, if your veteri narian is unavailable or unequipped to handle the situation, call the near est animal hospital or the Pet Poison Helpline at 1-855-213-6680. This is especially important if your pet is displaying symptoms such as mus cle tremors or repeated vomiting. Please keep this list handy and be good to your pets, they depend on us completely for all the love and care they need to be happy. Until next time, stay healthy!
