Washoe Valley Veterinary Hospital hosting safety fair June 18

A rattlesnake has bitten your pet, what do you do? Do you wish to learn more about pet CPR and first aid? Are you concerned about wildfires and the effect on your neighborhood? What do you do if you have wildlife living in your yard? These questions and others will be answered at a safety fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 18 at Washoe Valley Veterinary Hospital, 3245 Eastlake Blvd., Washoe Valley.

A talk by Dr. Dennis Wilson of Animal Emergency Center will cover first aid for pets. Dr. Sean Peck of Washoe Valley Veterinary Hospital will talk about CPR for pets, followed by a presentation by Dr. Kathleen Fisher about how to safely hike with dogs.

The event offers raffle prizes and representatives from South Valley Volunteer Fire Department, Nevada Department of Forestry, the Cooperative Extensions Service Master Gardner and Living With Fire program, Washoe County Citizen Corp., Washoe Valley Alliance and Nevada Department of Wildlife. Other activities, games and free hamburgers and hot dogs will be on hand.
