Spring Pet Tips

The warmer months are upon us, and we will be taking our pets outdoors more, Be aware of some of the potential environmental hazards.

1-Lawn fertilizers and mulch can be highly toxic to both cats and dogs. Keep that in mind when spraying your yard with chemicals for fleas/ticks and weeds.

2-Insect Bits can be quite serious, Watch for bee's, wasps, and ants (among others) with your pets. Look for swelling in the facial and paw area's. More serious reactions can occur so be sure to call our vet office.

3-Watch out for all of our favorite spring and summer flowers, including Lilies, Rhododendron and Azaleas, Tulips, among many others. Make sure to place plants out of reach of our four legged friends.

4-Does your dog love to swim? Be cautious of lakes and ponds in the area, The potential of Leptospirosis (Lepto) is a serious matter. Be sure to speak to our vet office about this vaccine.

-Pools are a great way to cool off, but Pools contain hazardous chemicals. Make sure you supervise at all times, and rinse your pets well afterwards.

5-Be mindful of short snouted dogs (ie. Bulldogs, pugs, frenchies) even cats in the heat, on hot days remember to keep the pets in a cooler environment with air conditioning.

-Heat stroke can happen to any dog, don't leave pets in the car-even with the windows cracked! A car's temperature can reach over 100 degrees within 5 minutes of turning the car off.
-In mid-summer, take walks earlier in the morning or later in the evening- remember that the pavement can get very hot.

6-This time of year supervise animals that are outside- Wildlife will be everywhere! Make sure that your pet is up to date on a Rabies vaccination.
