Autumn Is A Fun Time Of The Year, Keep Dog Safety In Mind.

3b849d41ee0a123c1ba77868800ae5d3Autumn is a busy and fun time of the year for many of us with kids being back at school, Halloween around the corner and plenty of other autumn activities happening everywhere.

Don’t forget your dog’s safety during this season, here are few tips to keep in mind:

  • Remember to keep fido warm! Shorter haired dogs should wear coats or sweaters and longer haired dogs shouldn’t be shaved down to the skin.
  • Mushrooms are popping up, keep your pets away from them! Fall is mushroom season, and while 99% are not toxic, 1% are. 779fca0128fa8d751d673a026bce662e
  • Oh no, snakes! Snakes prepare to hibernate in the fall so stay clear, they’re not in the best of moods!
  • Keep school supplies tucked away! Crayons, glue sticks, pencils and magic markers are toxic, be sure to keep them tucked away!

Happy (almost) autumn!

4f49afdd729bcb0388f013ea7f2ddfbfSummers are fun AND the perfect time to celebrate just about anything! If you’re someone who enjoys planning parties and casual soirees with friends and family, why not let pets be in on the fun too?

Planning and prepping a PAW-TY can be done (almost) lickety-split.

Here are a few ideas: 

  • Let the waterworks begin! Grab a kid’s pool and let all of those four legged beasts in! Remember to always keep an eye on your pets and ensure that proper safety practices are in place.
  • 8496270d22cac00dec87330d1e6058faDoggie loot bags are always great fun! You can include healthy treats and toys that are safe to play with.
  • If you have a big yard, provide some space for pets to run! Leaves time for a little chit chatting amongst the grown up humans.

Remember to always have fun. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Prepping Your Dog For Winter Weather And Keeping Them Safe.

6ab732b9b2a95f9de3d7de4d8c973f5bWinter can be a challenging time not just for pet owners but pets themselves. As the colder weather begins to settle in, we really need to be aware of how our pets are fairing outside when colder and often wetter temperatures begin to happen.

When it comes to our pets’ plush fur coats, we have to remember that as gorgeous as they may be, they aren’t the greatest when insulation comes into play and weather extremes can really take a toll. Wetness causes depleted insulation ability and nose, toes and ears can be very vulnerable in chilly temps.

In winter, dogs need a lot of protection from extreme temperatures and one key thing to note is if it’s too cold for you, it’s definitely too cold for your dog! Clothes and coats are absolutely essential keeping in mind that purchasing from reputable companies who ‘know’ the essentials of what actually protects from the cold would be best.

Something else to keep in mind is your pup’s pads. Salted sidewalks can really play a number so protective booties and socks wouldn’t be a bad thing to try out. It may take a bit of work to get them used to having something on but the benefits once they’ve become used to it are endless.

Walking your dog during darker days takes a bit of extra care, especially when your pet will be a little harder to see. Reflective collars, tags and leashes embedded with LED lights are great things to incorporate within your pet’s wardrobe.

e357a3d395e0211587e687d71fc22af1If you own a dog that LOVES being outdoors and actually enjoys colder temps, having plenty of food and unfrozen water are essential. There are actual inexpensive warmers in the market that keep water from freezing.

Many dogs aren’t too crazy about pottying outdoors. How can this process be made easier and more comfortable? Here are few ways to do just that:

  • Shovel a small area in the yard that’s clear of snow.
  • Wear booties to avoid freezing and burning paws.
  • Stay close to your pets when they’re outdoors so that you can let them indoors right away once they’re done.
  • For more mature senior dogs, creating an indoor area may be necessary for the sake of comfort.

Screen Shot 2014-10-05 at 12.34.24 PMIf your pet has been outdoors for too long and there’s a hypothermia concern, here are a few signs and symptoms:

  • violent shaking
  • muscle stiffness
  • a weak pulse
  • a lack of appetite
  • problems breathing

If any of these signs are visible, place your pet in a warm blanket or coat, bring them to a warm area and call your vet immediately.

For frostbite, look out for the following:

  • skin colour changes (grey/pale at first then turning to red)
  • painful ears, paws and tail when touched
  • shriveled skin and/or skin that doesn’t warm and stays cold.

If any of these signs occur, apply warm water to the affected areas. As tempting as it may be, do not use blow dryers or heating pads to expedite the heating process. Call your vet immediately.

Big warning: beware of antifreeze! If there is leakage anywhere, some pets will lap it up. It’s toxic and it doesn’t necessarily take lapping it up to cause serious harm. The slightest bit can make your animal very sick. If your dog has come into contact and has ingested it, immediate attention is essential. 35fea231ace311b5916cbfe4555e72f3

Have an excellent few months and remember that winter can be SO MUCH FUN for both you and your pets! Enjoy!
