Summer time fun!
It's officially summer and that usually means swimming, camping, traveling and all sorts of tasty food! We all enjoy summer fun, so does your furry best friend, just remember that they can't always do what we do and just like a child can only handle so much or try to push it too far. Here are some reminders to keep your whole family safe and the good times rolling!
Do not give your furry friend grapes/raisins as it can cause kidney failure, even if they've had no issues before while eating these foods there is always the chance they still can.
Although Avocados themselves may not be toxic to dogs or cats the pits can cause an obstruction.
Chicken and ribs can be a favorite grilling item during the summer, just remember to not give the bones to your furry friend as these can cause choking, obstructions and perforation of the intestines or stomach.
Baseball season can mean more gum in the home or at the fields. Sugar free gum containing Xylitol can be extremely toxic to the point it can be fatal. You could see neurological signs within 30 minutes or it could be delayed for many hours until symptoms occur. If you believe your pet has ingested gum, be on the safe side and see your regular veterinarian or an emergency veterinarian as soon as possible.
We all love to be outside and so do your furry friends but remember that they don't perspire they pant to get the extra heat out of their body. Just like you they need breaks, access to clean water and shade. If you have a long haired furry friend it would be beneficial to groom them shorter in the summer with the increased temperatures.
'Tis the camping season and that usually means rivers, lakes and ponds galore. There can be a plethora of bacteria in these bodies of water so please remember to bring clean water for your pets as well.
Fireworks can be beautiful, exciting and is a staple of summer time fun. Just like children, our furry children can be scared and run away from the noise, or overly excited and run towards the noise. Keep them safe by keeping them in a room, carrier, on a leash, etc so they can be safe and happy.
