Welcome to Spring! With Spring officially starting, we start thinking about home improvement projects, spring cleaning and spring celebrations! Be aware of some things to be cautious of as we head into the warmer weather with our furry family members!
Keep Easter goodies out of the reach of pets! Chocolate can be hazardous to pets, and Lilies can be fatal if ingested by cats. Also, be careful with plastic Easter grasses, which can lead to obstructions and vomiting if ingested. Also, while live bunnies and chicks are adorable, keep in mind they grow up fast and can require specialized care! Be ready for a committment that lasts after the Easter Holiday!
As we get into warmer spring days, we are all ready to open our windows! Make sure you have sturdy screens properly installed to prevent pets, especially cats from falling out!
While most dogs love to feel the wind on their faces, allowing them to ride in truck beds or stick their heads out of moving cars is dangerous. Flying debris and insects can cause ear or eye injuries, and abrupt stops or turns can cause major injuries. Pets riding in vehicles should remain inside the vehicles securely fastened!
Spring cleaning is done by most of us as the house has been closed up all winter. Be sure to keep cleaners and chemicals out of pets' way! Almost all cleaning products, even all natural ones, contain chemicals that may be harmful to pets. Products such as paint, mineral spirits and solvents can be toxic to your pets, so be careful with home improvement projects!
When planting spring gardens, be careful with fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides that keep our plants and lawns healthy and green. Always store these products in an out of the way place and follow label instructions carefully.
Like us, pets can be allergic to foods, dust, plants and pollens. Allergic reactions in dogs and cats will most commonly cause itching, but be careful as life threatening anaphylactic shock can occur if your pet is allergic to insect bites and stings. If you suspect your pet has a springtime allergy, call the office and make an appointment....we will be glad to help!
April showers bring May flowers,..and BUGS! Make sure your pet is started on heartworm prevention, as well and flea and tick protection as we head into warmer, buggy weather. Call the office and we will be glad to discuss the products we carry as well as let you know about specials to help with the cost of these products to keep your pets safe!
Warmer weather means our pets will be outside more, so make sure they are properly identified with an ID tag, or have a microchip in case they get lost! Also, if your pet is microchipped, make sure to keep your contact information current, so they can be safely returned home!
Spring is the time for our pets to lose their winter coats! If your pet is in need of a spring groom, contact our office and make an appointment with Donna! She has over 30 years of grooming experience, and she can make your pets beautiful for Spring!
Enjoy the spring weather, and make sure your pets stay safe so they can enjoy it too!!
