Pet Heat Safety

To help you be as prepared as possible, here is what you need to know about pet heat safety.

Litter Training Your Cat

If your cat is an outdoor kitty then chances are she will probably do her business outside at least some of the time. However, you still need to provide your cat with an indoor bathroom so that she can empty her bladder and bowels in privacy too. Litter training your cat may sound complicated, but their natural desire to be clean means that most felines adopt using the box fairly quickly – enabling your home to remain clean and harmonious for everyone living there!

Ticks and Fleas Prevention

Parasite prevention are two words that should be on the tongue of every responsible pet owner. Nevertheless, many inexperienced pet parents don’t fully realize the repercussions that a parasite problem could have for the health of their beloved furbaby, and even the humans living in their home. Cats, dogs and even ferrets are all at risk, so don’t let your pet remain unprotected. Here is what you need to know about tick and flea prevention.

Pet Allergies and Dermatology – Pet Health and Care

Believe it or not, pets can get allergies too. When it comes to your pet’s skin health, pet allergies and dermatology go hand in hand. All kinds of environmental stressors can cause skin irritation and infection. Pollen, dust, and dander allergies can cause your pet to experience the same kinds of similar health issues as a person can. Even so, food allergies and parasites can cause similar dermatological issues as well. In order for your veterinarian to determine the cause of your pet’s adverse reactions, it is important to test for all possible causes.

Fireworks and Noise Safety for Pets

It doesn’t matter how well adjusted you think your pet is, animals and fireworks are not a good combination. Studies suggest that as many as half of pets exhibit very visible symptoms of fear when it comes to fireworks – with nearly all of their anxiety related to the sounds rather than the sights of fireworks. It is important to remember that your pet’s hearing is far superior to your own, so what sounds like a loud bang to you can sound far, far louder and more frightening to an animal that doesn’t anticipate the sound or realizes that it won’t actually hurt them. However, even if your pet doesn’t appear to be particularly afraid of them, it is important to take steps to keep him safe and happy during times when fireworks are likely.
