News and Information
The holidays are upon us again and with that it is time to talk pet safety with all the festivities. This blog will focus on Thanksgiving specifically and next month we will visit Christmas.
We are thankful
In this time of year when everything around us is running at warp speeds and we can’t tell the difference between today, yesterday, last week, or much less consider next week. We would like to take this time to slow down a bit and thank to people who make life a joy as well as time to be thankful for all the many blessings in our lives. Happiness is contagious so we hope that you may also stop and consider all the blessings in your life too.
Halloween and Pet Safety
Halloween is once again upon us and while it can be a great time of year with beautiful leaves falling and fun costumes with lots of yummy candy, it can also be a dangerous time of year for our pets.
Let’s start with costumes for your pet. If your pet enjoys getting dressed up then great! But, if you have a pet that does not, then consider letting he or she wear just a festive bandana. Halloween is already stressful without making your pet more anxious. For those who do like a fun costume, please make sure it fits comfortably without any tightness that could cause swelling or pain or pull on their fur. A costume should be loose but not enough that your pet could trip on it, this includes trailing pieces. Also, if a costume includes an eye piece or head cover make sure your pet can still easily see and hear. Lastly, make sure there are no extra pieces (bells, balls, bows) that your pet could chew off and cause a bowel obstruction.
