Foxtails, Briars, and Burrs

When your pet spends time out in the woods, fields, or grassy areas, they can pick up all sorts of unpleasant things. You may see burrs, briars, or foxtails—seed pods with sticky or hooked parts on them—stuck in your pet’s fur, but have you checked to make sure they aren’t stuck anywhere else, such as in foot pads, ears, or pierced through skin? It’s important to always give your pet a thorough check when they come in from an adventure outside.
