As we’re all well aware, the late summer months are the peak of “wildfire season”. Most families have some sort of evacuation plan, but are your pets part of your plan? Fires, whether they are grass fires or house fires, can start and travel very quickly. Having a written out and practiced plan is the best way to keep you and your entire household safe.
Most people have heard the term “anemia”, either referred to in humans or animals. Anemia is a condition that occurs when the number of red blood cells in the body falls below the normal values, or they function improperly.
We all like to think of our homes as being safe havens for our pets. We are offering them protection from the dangers of the outside world, right? What some people are not aware of however, are the dangers that lurk INSIDE our homes. Unfortunately, there are several products that we may use on a daily basis that are very dangerous, and sometimes even fatal, to our animals.
If you are a pet owner, one of the first things you should have or should be considering is the spaying or neutering of your pet. The decision to spay or neuter your pet will have a huge effect on their overall long-term health and welfare.
Our pets tend to be creatures of habit, meaning they are most comfortable when they’re in their normal routine. When that routine is interrupted, they can be easily agitated or become scared and anxious. Halloween is no exception to this, especially for a dog that does not understand what is going on. The costumes, noise, lights, and activity may scare them. Whether you’re taking your dog trick-or-treating with you or staying home to hand out candy, take a moment to make sure your furry pal is safe and secure.
Many common household items present a potential risk to your furry friend’s health and well-being so it’s important to learn how to safely organize your home in order to make it a pet-safe environment.
First and most importantly: do not leave your pets behind in the event of an evacuation! Pets that are left behind can escape or become trapped and injured. Remember, if it isn’t safe for humans, it isn’t safe for pets!
Often times, as a pet owner, it’s hard to know whether your pet’s condition is a true medical emergency or not.
Keeping a first aid kit for your pet is just as important as having one for yourself. It can help you in the event of an emergency where you need to quickly get to their rescue…
