Lifelines come when they are needed the most

Surprises happen on the Rio Grande irrigation system. Gaston had already been watching us when he called out for help. He had to take a chance. Frank and I might be his only shot at survival, especially in his current state: wet, cold, thirsty, hungry, and a potential coyote snack. It was around dusk, following a pretty good soaking rain. Coyotes, being wily, know this routine well as they lurk in the shadows.

I hope you found the story of Gaston to be valuable. You’re welcome to share this podcast with any of your pet-loving friends. Each week I share a short video, a podcast, or a blog to help bring out the best in pets and their people. You can sign up at no charge on my website, drjeffnichol.com. And when you do, I’ll send you my free at-home pet first aid and CPR guide.

Thanks for listening. I’m Dr. Jeff Nichol.
