Movie in the Park-Part I

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Illumination Nation’s Minions (rated PG) as part of our summer movie showings!

Evolving from single-celled yellow organisms at the dawn of time, Minions live to serve, but find themselves working for a continual series of unsuccessful masters, from T. Rex to Napoleon. Without a master to grovel for, the Minions fall into a deep depression. But one minion, Kevin, has a plan; accompanied by his pals Stuart and Bob, Kevin sets forth to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. Their search leads them to Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first-ever super-villainess.

Minions will be shown on Friday, June 3rd at the lower softball field of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, bungee run, a sticky wall and more!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start at sunset (around 8:00PM). Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating! A few food trucks will be there and will have a variety of food & refreshments for purchase.

For more information, feel free to contact Liz McCardle at or call (760) 798-9015.

Please remember to bring proof of residency to gain entrance into the event (i.e.: driver’s license with on-site address, utility bill, HOA statement, etc.). Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow you to enter the event without verifying residency. No guests will be permitted.

Eucalyptus Trees: San Elijo Hills “City” Park

A cluster of “volunteer” Eucalyptus trees will be removed on Friday, May 6th, in the San Elijo Hills Park between the lower and upper softball fields.

The trees are located in an easement for the San Diego County Water Authority, and currently sit on top of two pipelines. In addition to limiting access to the pipes, the trees are beginning to arc creating a health and safety issue.

The San Elijo Hills Park is not owned or maintained by the San Elijo Hills Community Association.

Spring brings warm temps and scaly critters in San Marcos


The City of San Marcos – Shared this good advice about rattlesnake season-

As springtime brings warmer temperatures, more fury and scaly creatures have begun appearing in our yards and parks.

With all sorts of wildlife emerging in the spring, April and May mark the start of rattlesnake season in San Diego County. Recent reports have described increased snake sightings. As the reptiles come out of hibernation, it is not uncommon to spot them locally, though bites are rare. Most sightings are likely to happen between now and October.

“Snakes are most likely venturing out in search of food and to soak up the sun,” said San Marcos Park Ranger Ron Vinluan. “People think they’re going to chase you—that isn’t so. They don’t want anything to do with us.”

If you encounter one of the five varieties of rattlesnakes found in the county, give it space. Calmly back away from it, leave it alone and let it go on its way, Vinluan continued.

To avoid encounters with rattlesnakes, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife suggests these safety steps that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of startling a rattlesnake:

  • Never go barefoot or wear sandals when hiking. Wear sturdy hiking boots with loose-fitting long pants to protect feet and ankles.
  • Stay on paths and trails, avoiding tall grass, weeds and brush where snakes may hide.
  • Keep your dog on leash while hiking and be aware of what your dog is doing at all times.
  • Make sure you can see where you are reaching and that you can see ahead of you. Look for concealed snakes before picking up rocks, sticks or wood.
  • Be careful when stepping over doorsteps as snakes like to crawl along the edge of buildings where they are protected on one side.
  • Never hike alone. Always have someone with you who can assist in an emergency.
  • Teach children early to respect snakes and to leave them alone. Children are naturally curious and will pick up snakes.

If bitten or you feel a snake or other animal is dangerous, call 911 immediately. For more information about rattlesnakes in California, visit

Dog Bite Prevention Workshop

Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo Hills

Dog Bite Prevention Workshop

We take the safety of your human family members just as seriously as we do the safety of your pets. In support of National Dog Bite Prevention Week, May 17-May 23rd our hospital is sponsoring a dog bite prevention workshop for local families.  This workshop will address human and canine behaviors that often precipitate an act of aggression on the part of the dog, and how to prevent them.

If you are interested in this FREE class, please email our office and we will put you on our invitation list.  Adults and children of 12 years of age or older are invited to attend. This workshop will be held Wednesday, May 4th from 5 pm to 6pm.

More than 4.5 million people in the U.S. are bitten by dogs every year and almost 1 in 5 requires medical attention.  Children are the most common victims of dog bites and are far more likely to be severely injured and severely traumatized.

Common dog bite myths include:
• My dog would never bite.
• We got an (insert breed) because they don’t bite.
• Only dogs that are abused or trained toward aggression bite.
• My child would never hurt a dog.
• My child knows to stay away from strange dogs.
• My child and my dog are best friends.

Whether you are a first time or experienced dog owner, please join us for a fun and informative workshop designed to keep you and your family from becoming another dog bite statistic.

Why is my child barking? It could be croup!


Why is my child barking? It could be croup!

The difference between a cough due to cold or a cough due to croup is very distinct. Croup, which is an infection that causes the vocal chords to swell, causes a cough that sounds like a bark. In Dr. Jaime Friedman’s latest BLOG, she explains very thoroughly the symptoms and treatment for this common ailment.

For more healthcare information for kids, be sure to visit our website to find a doctor, get the latest information on children’s health topics and find out why CPMG is right for you. In partnership with Rady Children’s Health Network, we’re the region’s only pediatric medical network specializing in children’s health, from birth through age 18.
