FALL and WINTER PET CARE TIPS


Fall, Winter and Holiday seasons all come with special risks to your pets. Here are some tips for keeping them all safe and healthy.

Maintenance Tips
Always provide fresh, clean water for your pet. If the weather is cold, please check their water for ice formation and remove the ice.
Never use metal bowls during the cold months. Ice forms more quickly and your pet may be injured by having their nose or tongue
freeze to the metal.

Outdoor pets should have a clean, dry shelter out of the wind. During periods of extreme cold, bring your pets indoors. (Some dogs
with heavy coats may find the temperature in your home to be too warm. An insulated garage or basement may be a better choice
for them)

Staying warm requires extra calories, pets may need more food or a change in diet. Talk to your veterinarian about your pets
needs.

Remove ice, salt, mud, or snow from your pets’ feet as soon as possible. If the skin looks reddish, white or gray in cold weather, or
is scaly or peeling, suspect frostbite. Talk to a veterinarian immediately.


Hazard Warnings!
*Cats and kittens like to nap in warm places. This can include car engines! Knock on the hood of your car or truck or honk the
horn, then wait a few minutes before starting the engine. If in doubt, open the hood and look.

*Antifreeze smells and tastes good. Very small amounts can kill your pet. If your cat walks through it, then licks its paws, it will get
enough. The damage is done by chemicals crystallizing in the kidney, so symptoms may not show up for a few days and by then it
may be too late. Thoroughly clean up any spills, store antifreeze in tightly closed containers and store where pets and children
can't get to them. Sierra makes non-toxic antifreeze. Do not dispose of antifreeze by pouring into the gutter.

*Fall is the most common time of year for male cats to "block" or forming small " stones that block the flow of urine from the bladder
through the urethra. If your cat is suddenly urinating around your home or seems to be straining "to go to the bathroom", they
should be examined by a veterinarian at once. One of the most common complaints I heard was that the owner thought the cat was
constipated. Why this time of year? May have to do with decreased water intake.

*Holiday food: Alcoholic beverage, candy, chocolate, turkey and fixing, pork, fish, bones, just to name a few hazards...keep your
pet on its regular diet. Pet foods are specially designed for keeping you pet healthy. Giving your pet treats from your plate can
cause medical problems.

*Poisonous plants--Many plants , including Christmas rose, holly, mistletoe, philodendron, dieffenbachia  are toxic to your pet.
Keep them out of your pets reach.

*Holiday paraphernalia- Electric cords, tinsel, glass ornaments, candles, spray on-snow (some are non-toxic-read the label),
ribbons, plastic or foil wrapping, etc. Can be dangerous to your pet. Cover up or hide electric cords.  Do not tie ribbons around pets
necks or limbs. Watch out for rubber bands too.
We will be CLOSED November 28th
for Thanksgiving. Happy Holidays!
