One of the most common parasites that we see which are associated with pets is ticks. Sometimes they can suck such a large amount of blood from pets that they can cause them to become anemic. If not dealt with in a proper or timely manner, anemia may become fatal. Ticks not only literally suck the life out of pets, but they also carry diseases that are detrimental to their health. Some of the diseases that ticks carry are spread to our pets through their saliva.
As mentioned in several previous articles, the folks at the Humane Society of Imperial County cannot express how important it is to have proper identification on pets at all times. Last week a family came into the shelter with a small dog that they had found that had been hit by a car. The little dog was in very bad shape and had looked like he had been suffering for quite some time.
Most Imperial Valley community members know by now that the most effective way in controlling the feral cat overpopulation is through TNR — Trap, Neuter, Return. This means that feral cats in an area or neighborhood are trapped with a humane trap, are spayed or neutered, allowed to recover from anesthesia, and retuned back to their exact area or neighborhood. kAm%9:D 6?DFC6D E92E ? @ ?6H 76C2= 42ED 4@>6 :?E@ E96 2C62 2?5 E92E E96J 2C6 ?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
