The snow beavers are coming! Every year, immediately after the first snow of an inch or more, we get a flood of dogs coming in with lacerations on their feet. When owners puzzle over what caused the cut one of our technicians would be quick to tell them that it was a particularly aggressive type of wildlife known as the Snow Beaver. As it turns out the culprit is almost always metal lawn edging. When the snow covers it dogs cannot see it to avoid it and often end up with severe injuries to their feet and legs. Lawn edging must have been created by a diabolical veterinarian to bring in more business, because without it we would probably see 80% fewer feet and legs to sew up.
