Spring is here! It’s time to brush up on our spring safety tips! Here are 5 things to keep in mind as you and your four-legged friends prepare for longer days and nicer weather.
Thinking of doing some spring cleaning? Make sure to keep harsh chemicals out of reach from your pets. Make sure to open windows when using products with chemicals. Strong acidity cleaners are dangerous and corrosive. These include rust removers, toilet cleaners and surface cleaners with hydrochloric acid.
Fertilizers pose a deadly threat to dogs and cats if ingested. After fertilizing your lawn or garden wait at least two days to let your pets on the treated area. Pets can easily digest fertilizer if it is picked up on their fur and paws. If you suspect your pet has ingested fertilizer or poisonous lawn treatment, contact us immediately.
With everything defrosting in the spring, fleas and ticks are more prominent. Preventative care should be used on your pets all year round. After outdoor activity, inspect your pet for fleas and ticks. Ask us what preventatives are best suited for your pet.
Warm weather comes along with more time outside. If you let your pet off leash, make sure they always have proper identification in the form of a microchip or tags.
We aren’t the only ones that get allergies! Springtime can mean an onslaught of allergies for our four-legged friends too. Dust, plants, and pollen can cause sneezing and runny noses in your pets. Bee stings can also cause dogs or cats to go into shock. If you notice signs of allergies in your pets, contact us right away.
