If you need a place to take your livestock we have been told that you can take them to the Omak Stampede Grounds. It is located at 421 Stampede Dr E, Omak, WA, 98841.


The smoke covering the skies in Eastern Washington and North Idaho is hard on people with asthma and allergies. But it's also hard on pets and farm animals - especially horses.

Because of the smoke from the Carlton Complex Fire near Twisp, Wash., air quality levels have dipped down to unhealthy levels.

Dr. John Harris from the Deer Park Veterinary Clinic told KHQ Friday morning he advises people to keep their cats and dogs inside until the air quality improves. And he says the smoke is especially hard on horses, particularly older horses who can develop cough similar to what people experience. Medicine exists, including steroids, to help animals that have a heard time breathing the smokey air.

Dogs, cats, pigs, chickens and other farm animals seem to deal with the poor air quality better than horses, said Harris. But he still advises people to bring cats and dogs indoors if possible.
