Here are some recommendations to help keep our pets safe as we deal with the unique challenges the warmer weather brings.
Summer months are when our pets are at the highest risk for overheating and heat stroke. We recommend being mindful of the heat, especially for short muzzled dogs like English Bulldogs and Pugs. Keep them inside where it’s cool, offer water, avoid walking your pet on pavement or asphalt during the hottest time of the day and use sunblock.
Summer vacation and holidays are a great time for the family to get together and have fun. Please remember that our pet’s don’t tolerate high fat foods and be mindful of common human foods that may be toxic to our pets. Avoid feeding them table scraps as that can lead to vomiting or diarrhea. Pet’s can also get into non-digestible items like corn cobs, foil and kebob skewers, which can lead to serious illness if ingested. Please make sure that all trash is promptly discarded and pet’s aren’t given access to them.
We also recommend taking some extra precautions for pets that spend time outdoors-whether it's in your own backyard or visiting the local dog park or going camping. Keep an eye out for wildlife that can pose potential threat to your pet-such as angry bees and venomous snakes. Micro-chipping, name tags, photos and other forms of pet ID can be helpful in reuniting you with your pet if they become lost. Prevention for fleas, ticks, and parasites will help keep your pet healthy as well as keep those creepy crawlers outside of your home!
We wish everyone a happy and safe summer!
