Pets Rescued From Fatal California Wildfire Are Healing By Wearing Fish Skin Mittens
The latest outbreak of devastating wildfires in California resulted in the mass destruction of personal property and the heartbreaking loss of life. Horse owners turned their equine loose as flames grew closer and closer. Pet owners tried desperately to find their beloved cats and dogs so they could flee together, but some animals were abandoned at the last minute.
Rescue workers and volunteers tried valiantly to retrieve all of the pets they could after the wildfires were squelched. Many were transported to area veterinarians for treatment from smoke inhalation and burns. The VCA Valley Oak Veterinary Center in Chico decided to try an unusual burn treatment to help the cats and dogs heal from their injuries – fish skin.
