We hope you are enjoying your Spring!

Please remember the dangers to your pet during the heat of summer.
*Please test the asphalt and concrete with your hand before walking your pet on pavements. It can be too hot and cause burns to the pads of their feet.

*If you take your dog areas that have water, such as the beach, lakes, rivers, streams, and water/splash pads- pay attention to how much water they are ingesting. If they consume too much water, they can develop water intoxication.

*Be sure to have an ID tag with your phone number and address on your pet. Fireworks, thunder and other loud noises can frighten a dog in to bolting.

*During picnics, parties and gatherings, do not allow your guests to feed your pets human food. If you cannot trust the people not to feed your pet things like chicken bones, alcohol, pork, fatty foods, sweets, etc, then it would be best to place your pets in a secure area of your home.

*Watch out for snakes! My ‘granddog’ was by a Copperhead. Swelling and pain was immediate. They gave her Benadryl and headed to the emergency vet. She did fine, but it was painful and scary!

*Never leave your pet in a car! The car can over heat and cause heat stroke in no time!

Vet care can be expensive. So your best bet is to be PROACTIVE and think ahead! You can save your pet, your heart and your wallet a lot of grief.

*Last but not least, LIVE today. Our pets have short lives and we are all not promised a ‘tomorrow’. Soak in the rays and soak in life. ENJOY time spent with your pet and the summer.
Turn off the electronics and listen to the sounds of summer. Remember times when you were a child and you were BORED? I cannot remember the last time I was bored! I always have so much to do. I think boredom must be a luxury!
