life's super scary sounds. and sneaking in without moving the bed.
12:12 pm
life's super scary sounds. and sneaking in without moving the bed. all you pet owners and pet lovers, every friday we take your questions about your favorite animals and we put them to veterinarian dr. jill chase and today, we're talking about fox tails and what you need to know before you take your dog on a very nice long walk this weekend and you brought indigo.
12:13 pm
>> yup. >> indigo is beautiful. >> yes. he's gorgeous. >> so what do we need to know? >> so this is what they look like. like kind of tiny. hold on. >> it's a little tough to see. >> there we go. >> it's a little tough to see but we have a picture of what it looks like. >> that's what it looks like when they're actually on the plant. the little pieces get caught in the fur or up their nose or into their ears. so my recommendation to my clients is don't go where there are foxtails like just don't go. >> how do you know? how do you know the areas to avoid? >> foxtails are in season so they are everywhere so the presidio has them, pretty much every park in san francisco. >> so don't take your dog to a park? >> no. what i say is stay on the beaches where there's sand and, you know, stay on grassy areas that are actually like turf grass and cement. i mean, i just -- i feel prevention is the best way to go and i brought indigo in because i wanted to show -- she's very fluffy so vegetation can gut caught in the fur which is an easy way to find it but always after you take them for
12:14 pm
a walk check their paws and like not only look with your eyeballs but look with your fingers because sometimes you'll miss seeing them but you'll feel them and vice versa and i think it's a good idea to flip up their ears, check the area and make sure there are no fox tails there. if they ever sneeze violently and they have been out where there are foxtails, you might want to assume they might have have snuffed one up. >> are they painful? >> they are. the barbs on these, what happens is they only move in one direction so they tend to move and they can't come back out so they can actually in worst case scenarios burrow into the skin and make it into the chest cavity. so i tell people try to avoid foxtails. >> you say they are out now. when is foxtail season? >> through the fall. basically december. it's one of the things if you want to prevent having a financial situation with your
12:15 pm
pet, stay way from the foxtails. >> did you hear that, indigo? stay away from them. there you go [ laughter ] >> so we want to invite all you pet lovers send us your questions about their health and well-being. just email or on our facebook page, and we'll have our pet expert give you an answer every friday right here at noon. too bad indigo can't come every friday, right, julie? >> that's right! >> my allie has had foxtails in the ear before and it's a painful expensive experience so dog moms and dads, listen up. let's take a look outside. it's a great day for a walk to the beach, not too hot. again stay in the sandy gravel areas that we just learned. take a look outside. plenty of clouds out there. gray skies scattered showers the story this morning. right now temperatures hovering around the 60-degree mark for the cooler spots. mid-60s in places like concord and livermore, warmer inland with more breaks in the clouds. for the most part we are
12:16 pm
looking at hi-def doppler and not tracking any showers. we have seen scattered showers throughout the day. 20% chance of showers in the forecast today. mostly cloudy staying cool today 20% chance of showers. more sun however as we head into the weekend. milder conditions for this holiday weekend. here's the low with moisture around this low that's bringing us those showers. but the low will push east as we head into the weekend and that means fewer showers for us at least fewer shower chances. high sierra today travel forecast a chance of some scattered thundershowers. throughout the valley today cloudy, cool, scattered showers there as well as along the coast. take a look at sunset, 8:18 tonight, and tomorrow morning sunrise 5:54. temperatures today again mild and cool scattered showers in the forecast. 58 pacifica. 60 san francisco. 68 san jose. 68 fairfield. 65 your high temperature today
12:17 pm
in vallejo. your extended forecast showing that we'll keep those showers -- by scattered showers, i mean heavy drizzle. we're not talking a lot of rain here, folks, certainly not going to do anything to our drought issue. but we are going to see the possibility of a little moisture out there. taking a look at your extended forecast you can see that we are around 70 for the warmest spots today inland staying cool by coast. this weekend we warm up with a little more sunshine inland. but if you are planning those beach barbecues, bring a jacket. it will stay cool. it will stay gray along the coast. now, next week, by midweek, that when is we start to see a transition and getting closer to normal for this time of year. >> so we call in sick on wednesday, thursday? >> i would say wednesday, thursday. ironically i'm filling for roberta wednesday morning so i'm going to get off early that day and might go to the beach. >> great idea. >> thank you. hey, final day of trading on wall street. let's take a look at the big board see how the stocks did on this day. they are down a little over 14 points. new at noon, the state
