Vets tend to injured, roaming animals in West
WEST, Texas (AP) -- A veterinary team's tending to six search and rescue dogs in the Central Texas town of West along with several dozen injured and wayward animals following a fertilizer plant explosion.
Wesley Bissett is the director of Texas A&M's veterinary emergency team. He says his group's treated dogs, cats, horses, sheep, cattle, rabbits and even a bearded dragon in their two mobile clinics.
One of the two most severely wounded animals had a blow to its side while another had an injured leg. The team's also keeping search dogs hydrated and free of scratches while they comb through the rubble.
The veterinarians are also working to decontaminate animals that are covered in fiberglass and insulation, while also giving feed, warmth and water to others.
