We are always looking out for your pet's health. Please keep the following in mind this spring for pet safety.
Spring is a great time to get outside and make some changes to the yard. While change can be good, some things should be carefully considered for your pet's safety.
The best way to protect your pet(s) is to stop diseases at their source before they start. Make sure that your pet(s) have been started on or are up to date on flea, tick, and heartworm prevention.
Mulching is very popular in flower beds and can not only help the flowers but create a scenic landscape on your property. Pay attention to the type of mulch you use around your pets. A lot of different mulches can contain harmful chemicals for your pets that may make them sick or even cause death. When selecting a mulch for your yard ensure that it is a pet safe product.
Spring has everyone thinking about all the beautiful flowers hyacinths, tulips, and daffodils to name a few. Certain flowers can be dangerous to your pets so please check labels, do your research, and either plant pet safe plants or make sure that poisonous plants are fenced off.
Winter storms can cause wear and damage to fencing. Spring is a great time to take a look and make sure that all your fencing is in good shape. Fix problem spots and make sure that your pet can go out in the yard safely.
While you're looking your fence over any pet housing should be checked for leaks or flooding possibilities. Your pet's outdoor home should be a dry, protected, safe space for them to relax.
Great Spring projects for your pet(s)...
plant some shrubbery or vines that can grow to create shade for your pets from the hot summer sun.
place a kiddy pool in the yard for your dog to cool off under proper supervision.
make a doggy sandbox. Did you know that you can cut down or completely stop unwanted digging in your yard by creating a special area for your dog to dig? A doggy sandbox should be filled with pet safe materials in which you can hide treats or toys to encourage your dog to dig in that part of the yard and not your flower beds.
