Los Angeles County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Rodent In Attic Has Become Lethargic-What Could This Mean? - If you have rodents in your attic and are trying to eradicate them, you may be concerned if you happen to notice they are showing signs of lethargy. Lethargic rodents may be infected with rodent poxvirus. Grey rodents rarely die from this disease since they have developed immunity to the disease - for red rodents however rodent poxvirus in generally fatal. Rodents infected with the poxvirus become increasingly lethargic and shivery but are not thought to pose any threat to humans.

Any rodents, healthy or unhealthy, which have taken up residence in your home, need to be eradicated and if they are diseased you should also take steps to ensure that any carcasses are also removed and the attic, or infected area, is deep cleaned and sanitized. The only guaranteed method of eradicating rodents is by trapping them and removing them far away from your home - if you release rodents in the locality of your home it may mean that they re-infest your home. An alternative to release is to humanely kill the rodents but many people are too squeamish to use this method. Setting traps takes a little time and detective work but is the only guaranteed method of dealing with rodents in your home.

Animal Services - Los Angeles's animal shelter deserves a job done right

Perhaps Los Angeles could renovate the shelter for less money. After all, even with the recent windfall of development fees, the city has pressing needs: old streets, lack of sidewalks in some neighborhoods, redevelopment of retail areas, increase water service to areas north of Interstate 10, more police and firefighters for a town expected to double its population within a few years. If the bidding process will result in lower costs, the savings could be spent on the city's many other needs. Los Angeles County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with California wildlife problems. The city could tolerate the shelter's condition for a few months to ensure more infrastructure improvements in the long run. Putting the shelter remodeling out to bid also would give the council time to reconsider if money might be better spent on joining the valley's animal campus rather than running its own facility. Los Angeles city officials in 2003 decided not to join the new valleywide campus in Thousand Palms, which opens next month. Officials said the distance would be too inconvenient and cost too much for city animal control employees and residents wishing to drop off animals. For more information, call the animal services of Los Angeles, California. But Los Angeles's animal shelter is the county's soon-to-be abandoned facility. Considering the repair costs to this shelter and the array of other pressing city needs, the council and Los Angeles's new officials should re-examine if a contract with the valleywide effort wouldn't be less expensive, if only for the short term until the existing shelter is renovated. Los Angeles County animal services in Los Angeles, California, declined to comment on the matter, as did Santa Monica Animal Control and Beverly Hills Animal Services.

It's usually better to error on the side of caution. That's why the Pomona City Council tonight should put the $625,000 renovation of its animal shelter out to bid. Council members plan to discuss forgoing the competitive bid process at its regular meeting and instead award Brea-based DOG Construction Services Inc. with a $625,000 contract. Los Angeles County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with California wildlife problems. City officials believe an emergency exists at the shelter and delaying the remodeling is unwarranted. There's little doubt that upgrading the animal shelter is necessary if it's to stay open for the long-term. For more information, call the animal services of Pomona, California. The roughly 40-year-old facility has seen no improvements, other than routine maintenance. It needs a new heating and cooling system. During rain, the roof leaks. But no animals are unhealthy or have died because of these conditions. The city simply doesn't want its employees working at the facility in its current condition, even if only for a few months. Apparently this has not been a great concern of the county for its employees, though. Los Angeles County animal services in Pomona, California, declined to comment on the matter.

Animal Services - Canine control virus hits Pasadena

Rat added that none of his clients called back and "no news is good news," he said. Rat, along with 1,200 other veterinarians, received a warning letter from the veterinary association in late September, listing symptoms and information related to the virus. Rat did not test blood samples in mid-September of the dogs he treated so his cases can not be confirmed, he said. Los Angeles County animal services in Pasadena, California, declined to comment on the matter.

Cases of the virus also have been confirmed in Altadena, Monrovia, Arcadia, Baldwin Park, El Monte, and Alhambra, CDC officials said. Some local dog owners are hoping that the virus stays contained, but many say they won't be changing their routines because of it. Los Angeles County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with California wildlife problems.

"I'll just keep an eye out for coughing dogs," said Kathe Bann. She spent Monday afternoon at the Upland dog park with her terrier Prince, 13, and her mixed shepherd, Sarnt, 6, who were busy sniffing the green grass under the tall oaks. "I just hope they come up with a vaccination against it." Los Angeles County animal services in Pasadena, California, declined to comment on the matter.
