Keeping Your Pets Safe and Healthy

T

he summer’s long hot days and warm nights, sunny barbecues and beach days may be behind us but, thankfully, we still have some warm fall days ahead. Everyone wants to be outside and enjoy the great weather, even your pets. But sometimes activities that you would otherwise deem harmless can endanger your animal companions. When taking a car ride with your animal friend it may seem easiest to stop quickly and grab something from a store and harmless to leave them in the car while you quickly run in, because you’ll leave the windows down and you’ll park in the shade.... Don’t do this! After only a couple minutes of being trapped in a hot steel box, the temperature will rise to dangerous levels and may cause your pet to suffer from heatstroke or worse, death. While out driving don’t let your dog hang out of the window or ride in the back of your pickup truck. Both of these are equally dangerous and pose a threat to your dog falling or jumping out, or being hit by outside objects such as a tree branch or gravel. When you first get a puppy it may seem like a good idea to “teach” them how to swim. Whether it is in a pool or at a beach, it may not be the best idea. Most dog owners interpretation of the word teach, in this situation, is to simply throw the dog in and hope mother nature kicks in with the “doggy paddle” gene. It’s not a good idea to force your pup or dog to swim, because they may become traumatized, or drown. Even if your dog is born with the talent and the determination to swim, do not leave him alone in the water. Supervision is key, because accidents can happen. After your dog’s playtime in the water, make sure you rinse him off in fresh water to get rid of sand from the beach or chemicals from the pool.

While the weather is hot, fireworks are hotter. While taking a stroll with your dog if you see people with fireworks outside, turn your walk into a run and book it far away. Fireworks may look beautiful but when not done by professionals they are very dangerous, even for humans. A firework can go off in any direction and could potentially harm you or your dog. Fireworks are often featured at neighborhood parties. Make sure that before those festivities begin, your pets are safely inside. Your pet should always have access to fresh, cool drinking water.
