SPIKE'S CORNER

SPIKE’S CORNER

 

 

As the temperature starts to dip pet owners should take a moment to prepare their pets for the colder months ahead. Here are a few things to remember to protect your pet:

General pet wellness: A visit to your Vet for a wellness exam is always a good idea, but remember certain conditions, like arthritis are made worse by the cold weather.

Knowing your pets limits: Just because our pets have a beautiful fur coat does not mean that they are unaffected by the cold weather! Coats and booties for dogs and short trips outside will help in the frigid temps.

Provide choices inside: Comfy dog and kitty beds away from drafty doors and windows will be provide a great place for a winter day snooze.

Watch their food intake: Contrary to popular belief a chubby pet is not a warmer pet! Factor in their reduced activity level when feeding and giving treats.

Avoid ice and salt: When cabin fever sets in a short dog walk is nice, but watch out for ice and salt on the sidewalk. Salt can irritate your pets paws and you should always wipe it off, but also so that your pet does not ingest the sometimes toxic salt crystals.

Common sense and a bit of planning will keep your pets happy till Spring!!

DOGS ON THE MAYFLOWER

by The Rullo Team

Research confirms that the Pilgrims weren’t the only passengers aboard the Mayflower in September, 1620.  25-year-old pilgrim John Goodman brought his dogs along for the voyage.  Guess which two out of these three dogs made the trip.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
