Looks like the temperatures are warming up, and we are getting ready to head into Summer!  Here are some tips to make it a safe summer for you and your pets!
 
 Walk with caution.  Don't walk your dog during the days highest heat and humidity.  This is especially important for dogs like Bulldogs, Boston Terriers and Pugs, who can't pant as efficiently in humid weather due to their narrowed nostrils and windpipes.
 
NEVER leave your pet in the car!  Even if the windows are cracked, the interior temperature can rise by 20 degrees in as little as 7 minutes.
 
Watch for heat exhaustion.  If your pet shows signs of heat stress, including heavy panting, dry or bright red gums, thick drool, vomiting or wobbly legs, move them to a cool dry place, and get them to the office as soon as possible.  
 
Turn on the AC in your home for your pets when you are gone.  If it's too warm for you, it's too warm for them.
 
If  you take your dogs on boats, make sure they have a life vest in a bright color.  If they fall overboard or swim, they will be easy to spot in the water.  Be on the lookout around lakes for sink holes, and avoid lakes or ponds with blue-green algae, signified by scummy water and a foul odor.  
 
If you have a swimming pool, don't leave your pets unattended around an uncovered pool.  Create an exit strategy by teaching your pets how to get out of the pool by swimming to and using the stairs.  This will help them to learn where the stairs are and help them escape should accidents occur.
Heartworms are more prevalant in the summer because they are transmitted by mosquitos.  Make sure  your pet is taking heartworm prevention to prevent these parasites.  We recommend year round heartworm prevention.
 
Fleas and ticks are also more of a problem during warm weather.  We carry several excellent products to prevent these pests, and some products combine heartworm and flea protection in and easy to administer, monthly dose.  Ask our staff about  coupons and specials to help with the cost of these products.
 
Fireworks are common during the summer, and pets can easily become frightened by the noise and flashing lights.  Keep your pets confined indoors during firework displays, and if you do have them outside with you, make sure they are well identified in case they should become frightened and seperated from you.
 
Be careful with pets at barbeques.  Inquisitive noses can be easily burnt around grills, and overeating barbequed foods can cause stomach issues.  Keep  to your pet's normal diets, and they can enjoy the cookout too!
 
Keep your pets cool this summer by scheduling a summer groom!  Donna has over 30 years of grooming experience, and she can make your pets look awesome for the summer!
