“Although these cities are broadly disseminated across the United States, there are many areas that are experiencing an increase in the prevalence of heartworm disease. For this reason, the Companion Animal Parasite Council encourages pet owners across the country to talk with their veterinarian about the importance of annual heartworm testing and year-round prevention.”

Winter Weather Tips for your Pets

To Sweater or Not To Sweater

Sure, it’s cute, but does your pup really need a dress up? Well, January 14th is dress up your pet day, so obviously there are pet owners that take this very seriously. In reality, if you have a thin animal that doesn’t have a lot of body fat, or a short hair that doesn’t have a lot of insulation, then you do need to take precautions to keep them warm when they are out in the elements.

Careful on the Ice

This goes for all of you. Animals can slip and fall on the ice, same as use. If ice exists, try going to the park for your walk instead.

I’m Cold

Older animals, short-haired and skinny dogs get cold faster. Be especially careful with puppies.

Leave Animals Home

Treat cold weather the same as you would hot weather. Don’t leave your pets in the car during cold weather.

Keep Them On Leash

Keep your dogs on leash when you are out. Especially in snowy conditions where the animal may not be visible because of snow depth. If you are dealing with a puppy, double up on this rule. An untrained, inexperienced pup can get in more trouble faster than you or they may expect.

Wipe Their Feet

Many of you probably leave your walking shoes by the door. Roads are full of chemicals this time of year. Salts, anti-freeze and de-icers are used everywhere. Remember to wipe down your animals feet to keep those out of your house and out of their mouths.

New Years can be fear free for dogs and cats

Cat Gets Cold

Parks it under your vehicle. If you have an indoor/outdoor cat, chances are they have their favorite spots. In the garage may be one of them during the cold winter months. That means your car is a prime target for a snuggle spot.

If your cat frequents the garage make sure to find out where the are before you pull out the car. They may be on top of a tire or perched near a warm part under the vehicle.

Tackling Canine and Feline Frets and Fears During New Year’s Festivities

New Years Activity tips for dogsNew Years festivities can be a time of stress for many dogs and cats. From a pet’s perspective, loud, unpredictable noises and celebratory fireworks explosions are threatening and an understandable cause for alarm. Some animals react as if their very lives hang in the balance. For pets whose people are hosting a party, the presence of strangers and the change in environment — decorations, scented candles or potpourri, furniture moved around — can also be distressing. Thankfully it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are some tips to help your dog or cat keep calm and carry on as they join you in welcoming in the New Year. read more →
