Spring and Summer Pet Tips
1- Wildlife: Exposure to wildlife increases as our pets venture outdoors. Bite wounds from wildlife exposure are unpredictable. Always keep your pet updated on a Rabies vaccine.
2- Lawn care: fertilizers and weed killers can cause serious problems. Avoid allowing your pet on your lawn when chemicals are applied. Try to seek a pet friendly product.
3- Insect Bites: Stings and bites are common problems this time of year. Typical reactions can be itching, redness and swelling. Call if further symptoms develop.
4- Heat Stroke: Higher temperatures bring risks of over heating. Always provide cool water, shade and ventilation. Short nose dogs are most susceptable, and therefore need to be more from the heat and humidity. During the warmer months, remember to not leave your pets in the car!
5- Swimming: Remember to supervise and rinse your pet after a dip in the pool. Lakes, ponds and wetlands are a natural invite to dogs. Leptospirosis is a dangerous infectious agent that may be present. Make sure to keep your pet vaccinated.
