Seasonal Tips for Your Pets

Easter Treats and Decorations Easter lilies and chocolate goodies are toxic to cats, dogs and ferrets. Although our pets can eat the real grass outside, pets love to nibble on colorful plastic grass, which can lead to an obstructed digestive tract, severe vomiting and dehydration. Bunnies, chicks and other festive animals are adorable, resist the urge to buy—these cute babies. They grow up fast and often require specialized care! Don’t Forget the Screens What is better then opening up the windows on a breezy spring day to let in all the fresh air. Be sure to install snug and sturdy screens in all of your windows, so pets don’t get outside. If you have adjustable screens, make sure they are tightly wedged into window frames. Chemicals Used for Spring Cleaning Spring cleaning is a time-honored tradition in many households, but be sure to keep all cleaners and chemicals out of your pets’ way! In our home we use the Rainbow system to clean the air and vacuum. Remember, all commercially sold cleaning products contain chemicals that are harmful to pets. The key to using them safely is to read and follow label directions for proper use and storage. If I had a hammer? When starting those home improvement projects, remember your little helpers. Products such as paints, mineral spirits and solvents can be toxic to your pets and cause severe irritation or chemical burns. Be cautious of physical hazards, including nails, staples, insulation, blades and power tools. Our pets are too nosey, so we confine them in the kitchen during home improvement tasks. Gardening is good for the sole…but Take care—fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides keep our plants and lawns healthy and green, but their ingredients aren't meant for four-legged consumption and can be fatal if eaten. Always store these poisonous products in out-of-the-way places and follow label instructions carefully. Allergies Like their we humans our pets can be allergic to foods, dust, plants and pollens. Allergic reactions in dogs and cats can cause minor sniffling and sneezing as well as life-threatening anaphylactic shock. If you suspect your pet has a springtime allergy, please visit your veterinarian as soon as possible. Don’t go buggy April showers bring May flowers—and an onslaught of bugs! Make sure your pet is on year-round heartworm preventive medication, as well as a flea and tick control program. Ask your doctor to recommend a plan designed specifically for your pet. A Sunny Day in Tennessee with FriendsIt’s time for the Park Warmer weather means more trips to the park, longer walks and more chances for your pet to wander off! Make sure your dog or cat has a microchip for identification and wears a tag imprinted with your home address, cell phone and any other relevant contact information. In Williamson County all dogs must wear their rabies tags at all times.
