Kitten Season Is In Full Swing Consider Becoming a Bucks County SPCA Foster Ki�en Family!

Every spring, concerned citizens begin finding helpless newborn and very young kittens who are then brought to the Bucks County SPCA, sometimes dozens in a day. Some come in as orphans; others are still with nursing mothers. By opening your home as a foster kitten family, you can help give these little ones a strong start to a happy and healthy life. They’ll stay with you until they are big enough to return to the Bucks County SPCA for spaying or neutering, and then they’ll be placed up for adoption. With you on the Bucks County SPCA team, this year’s Kitten Season will have more happy endings than ever before! Don’t forget – adult and senior cats need attention and adoption, too!

For more information about adoption or becoming a foster kitten parent, please contact Lisé at the Lahaska shelter, 215-794-7425, or Christy at the Upper Bucks shelter, 267-347-4674.

Purrfect!

Ki�ens shown are not available for fostering or adoption!

SUMMER SAFETY TIPS FOR YOUR DOG! By Sue Senn, Sniffles and Friends Dog Walkers, Philadelphia, PA http://www.snifflesandfriends.com Our dogs are treasured family members, so we often welcome our dogs to participate in the special times in our lives – including holidays! However, to a dog every day spent with his favorite human is a holiday and he may not understand the strange people, noises, and events that are often associated with human holiday celebrations. Here are some safety tips to keep your favorite dog safe and happy during any festivity. GENERAL PARTY TIPS: • Try to adhere as closely as possible to your regular daily routine. Try not to make changes in your dog’s playtime, feeding, or activity schedule. • Don’t give your dog table scraps. Cookies, lunchmeat, and other party goodies are inappropriate foods for dogs and can easily cause tummy trouble. • If you host a party, remember that some guests may not feel comfortable around dogs. Your dog may, also be uncomfortable in a “crowd”. It might be a good idea to confine him to a quiet room that will be free of guests for the duration. If not, keep him by your side, or with another trusted family member, to keep him from getting underfoot or into trouble. •No matter how much fun the party becomes, do not let anyone give your dog alcohol.

Fourth of July •Very few dogs enjoy the excitement of Fourth of July fireworks. Their ears are much more sensitive than ours, and the sound of fireworks can actually be painful to a dog’s ears. • Dogs don’t enjoy fireworks displays – please leave yours at home. •If there is a fireworks display close enough to your home that it can be heard in your house, please sit down with your dog and comfort him if he appears to be frightened or confused. • If your dog has a history of having had adverse reactions to loud noises, be sure to speak with your veterinarian ahead of time for suggestions that might make the night easier. General Summer Heat Hazards If your dog is doors on a hot day, make sure he has a shady spot available out in the open. A dog house is not comfortable in the summer, as it traps heat and is worse than being outside. Dogs love wading in a child’s backyard wading pool – you might want to fill one up and have it available for some splashing! Never EVER leave your dog in a closed vehicle especially in the summer … not even for a second. The temperature inside a car

•Never EVER leave a dog in water unattended! Vacations/Travel Air – Many airlines will not ship animals during summer months due to dangers caused by hot weather. Some will only allow dogs to fly in the early morning or in the evening. Check with the airline beforehand so you know their rules and policies re: summer pet travel. •If you do ship a dog, put icepacks or an ice blanket in the dog’s crate. (Two-liter soft drink bottles filled with water and frozen work well.) Provide a container of fresh water, as well as a container of frozen water that will thaw over the course of the trip. Car – Keep your dog cool in the car by putting icepacks in his crate. Be sure the dog’s crate is well-ventilated. •Apply sun-shades to your cars’ windows. •Bring fresh water, a tarp for shade when you stop, and bring a spray bottle to spray your dog and cool him off during pit-stops! RV – Never rely on the air conditioning and generator systems in your RV or motor home. These devices can malfunction, with tragic results. •If you leave your dog in the RV with the generator running, check it often or have a neighbor monitor it for you in your absence. Some manufacturers have devices that will notify you if the generator should malfunction. •Never leave an RV or motor home completely closed up; even if the generator and AC are running. Always leave a door or window cracked a bit so let out any potential fumes. About heatstroke Heatstroke can be the serious and often fatal result of a dog’s prolonged exposure to excessive heat. Below are the signs of heatstroke and the actions you should take if your dog is overcome. Early Stages: •Heavy panting. •Rapid breathing. •Excessive drooling. •Bright red gums and tongue. •Standing 4-square, posting or spreading out in an attempt to maintain balance. Advanced Stages: •White or blue gums. •Lethargy, unwillingness to move. •Uncontrollable urination or defecation. •Labored, noisy breathing. •Shock. If your dog begins to exhibit signs of heatstroke, you should immediately try to cool the dog down: •Apply rubbing alcohol to the dog’s paw pads. •Apply ice packs to the groin area. •Hose down with water. •Allow the dog to lick ice chips or drink a small amount of water. •Offer Pedialyte to restore electrolytes.

Check your dog’s temperature regularly during this process. Once the dog’s temperature has stabilized at between 100 to 102 degrees, you can stop the cool-down process. If you cannot get the dog cooled down and you begin to see signs of advanced heatstroke, take the dog to the veterinarian immediately.

Pet Talk

Controlling Your Cat’s Hairballs

Many pet owners love their feline friends, and will do whatever it takes to keep them relaxed and happy. This makes it especially alarming for pet-owners to witness their cat suffer from the discomforting symptoms that come with hairballs. Knowing how to prevent this common problem and how to treat it when it occurs is essential to keeping your cat healthy. “A hairball is an accumulation of hair in the GI tract,” said James Barr, associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM).” It simply accumulates together and is usually contained within the stomach.” A hairball is formed when cats accidently ingest loose hair while cleaning their fur. The fur that is not digested accumulates in the stomach, forming a hairball. While clinical signs of hairballs may vary, common symptoms include decreased appetite, constipation, and vomiting. “In the worst case scenario, the hair passes through the stomach and lodges in the small intestine,” said Barr. “The result is an obstruction in the GI tract which can be life threatening.” If you believe your cat is feeling sick due to a hairball it is important to see your veterinarian right away. They may prescribe medication or give treatments that can help cats deal with the discomfort associated with hairballs.

“Numerous cats, especially those with long hair, will occasionally vomit up hairballs and not show any clinical signs, which may be completely normal for your cat,” said Barr. “If there seems to be an abnormal amount of hairballs produced, then steps should be taken to prevent the pet from ingesting large amounts of hair or to help the hair move through the GI tract before it accumulates together. Pet owners can also help reduce the severity of their cat’s hairballs by frequently brushing the cat and discouraging it from excessively grooming itself. “There are over-the-counter medications that are designed for cats with hairballs to aid in digestion,” said Barr. “As always, if there are concerns for your cat’s health, please call your veterinarian for guidance.”

CATS WILL REACH NEW HEIGHTS Introducing the Tower Scratch ‘n Shape

C

Cats are constantly jumping up and scratching furniture, unfortunately, sometimes ruining it. Imperial Cat created the Tower designed Scratch ‘n Shape, so your cat finally has a piece of “furniture” to call its own. This modern style scratcher has a brown pattern with white and gray squares, subtle enough to compliment any décor and provides a great scratching outlet they can also play on. The Tower scratcher is a multi-functional two in one scratcher. It can be used as a perch and vertical scratcher or placed on its side as a horizontal scratcher and lounger – perfect for catnaps. For an added bonus, the middle section pulls out and becomes another scratcher that cat owners can place in a separate area for more accessibility and scratching fun, alleviating the couch. This scratcher is joining the brand’s already popular line of high quality and eco-friendly products that are made in the USA from post consumer recycled materials, making Scratch ‘n Shapes recyclable after kitty’s use. The honeycomb texture of the corrugated cardboard imitates natural tree bark, so cats instinctively want to sink their claws into the scratchers. Each Scratch ‘n Shapes also includes a bag of Certified Organic Catnip to encourage the happy, active lifestyle of an Imperial Cat.

Page 14

For years, Imperial Cat has catered to the cat community’s needs and their Tower scratcher is no exception, suggested retail price starts at $61.20. For more information on the feline focused brand and their selection of horizontal and hanging Scratch ‘n Shapes variations, visit them online at www.ImperialCat.com. Distributors and retailers interested in stocking the new Tower Scratch ‘n Shapes can contact Kristie Hamilton, Director of Sales, at 501-354-8466. About Imperial Cat For more than 25 years, Imperial Cat has manufactured high quality, eco-friendly and natural cat products developed to enhance the lives of cats and their owners.

CHEW THIS, NOT THAT petprojektTM answers pets and parents chewing etiquette concerns with ChewbiesTM Chewing – it’s both natural and necessary for dogs. Puppies often chew to relieve teething discomfort and adult dogs commonly chew to alleviate boredom. But for those times or situations when unfocused or unrestrained chewing becomes a concern, it’s important to redirect that energy. Providing your furry family member with a toy that is appropriate for his size, age and chewing preference is crucial to avoiding the development of potentially destructive behavior and expensive consequences. When designing the ChewbiesTM dog toys, petprojektTM kept all of these concerns top of mind. That’s why the colorful line of toys is crafted from 100% non-toxic materials, that’s both safe and rewarding for the dog to chew. Plus, each soft, yet durable character includes an excitement-raising squeaker and a plush tail for a completely stimulating experience. Available in nine fun characters – including a bunny, squirrel, kitty kat, cow, chicken, pig, deer, bear and fox – in sizes both large and small, petprojekt Chewbies offers dogs hours of safe, healthy chewing fun!

Keep Fido entertained during long car rides with a Chewbies, it may mean the difference between scratched leather or torn seems and a nicely maintained interior.

When Home Alone. Occupy your pet when you personally can’t with a Chewbies instead of edibles, it has the excitement of a long lasting chew without the calories. When Outdoors. Whether playing fetch in the backyard or headed to the beach, the bright Chewbies toys are easy to find. When Playing With Younger Family Members.
