FALL SAFETY TIPS FOR YOUR PETS

It's the time of year when the scent of pumpkin spice wafts through the air and dogs are wanting to roll in piles of crispy leaves.  It's also a great time to protect the safety and well-being of your pet from potential seasonal dangers.  Here are some items that should be on your radar:

NO TRICKS, NO TREATS -- It's best to keep your cat or dog on their regular diet during the holidays.  keep Halloween candy and Thanksgiving foods out of their reach.  Chocolate and candy with Xylitol, like sugar-free gum, will make your pet sick.  Check with us, your veterinarian who knows your pet, if a little turkey is a safe snack.  Halloween is the start of the "season" for chocolate-related illnesses, most commonly chocolate toxicity.  There is a 71% increase in chocolate toxicity during Halloween compared to the previous six months of the year.  On average, chocolate-related health issues are expensive to treat.  Both cats and dogs are at risk for chocolate poisoning, but there are more reported cases of dogs since they will typically eat anything.

DOGS GET THE FLU TOO!  Canine flu and bordetella, or "kennel cough" are both airborne diseases.  If you see a dog that is coughing, keep your own dog away and avoid touching the ill dog.  If your dog develops a cough or high fever, contact us, your veterinarian, immediately.  Kennel cough is highly contagious and can cause a variety of symptoms ranging from dry cough for a couple of days, to fever, anorexia, severe pneumonia, and death.  Keep your dog away from other dogs when coughing for at least a week after you hear the last cough.

HOLIDAY STRESS ISN'T JUST FOR HUMANS -- Lots of unfamiliar faces and loud talking and laughter can stress your pet out.  Exercise your dog beforehand and give them a special chew toy to keep them distracted.  If they still seem stressed, put them in a quiet room away from all of the commotion.  Be sure cats have access to a quiet room where they will probably hide all on their own.

KEEP PESTS OUT --  As the weather turns cooler in fall, rats and mice may decide that your house would be a great place to stay warm and dry.  Be mindful of how you prevent these pests from entering your home.  To keep them out, close up any entry holes and choose anti-rodent products that are nontoxic.  Rodenticides are extremely toxic to dogs and cats, so it is best to discuss a safe control plan with a professional exterminator and us, your veterinarian.

BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLIES --  Now that kids are back in school, make sure you keep items like pencils, markers, and glue sticks out of your pet's reach.  If they decide the new school supplies would make great snacks, they might get gastrointestinal upset or blockages.  Cats are more likely to bite the edges of notebooks and paper.  Foreign body ingestion tops the list for both puppies and kittens, and it can be very costly to correct.

SNAKES!  Snakes get grumpy as they are preparing to hibernate, and don't take kindly to being disturbed by curious cats or dogs.  To protect your pets from venomous snake bites, know which snakes are poisonous and where they usually hibernate.  Walk your dog or cat on a leash away from those areas.  If your pet does get bitten, go to us, your veterinarian immediately.

MUSHROOMS --  Keep your pets from eating mushrooms that pop up on lawns, under trees, in fields and on logs.  While some won't make your pet sick, a few are deadly.  If your pet accidentally eats one, especially if they seem to have a reaction to it, or you know the mushroom is toxic, go to us, your veterinarian as soon as possible.  

CAR COOLANTS --  Fall is a great time to change your car's engine coolant, but be careful because most coolants are highly toxic to pets.  Clean up any spills immediately, keep any remaining new coolant out of reach and dispose of used coolant.  Also, consider switching to a propylene glycol based coolant -- while not completely nontoxic, it is significantly less toxic than other engine coolants.

ALLERGIES -- Just like people who have seasonal allergies, your cat or dog may also react to pollen, dust, or other allergens.  Pet allergy symptoms can be similar to ours -- sneezing or coughing, runny nose, itchy skin, ear infection, and itchy, red or watery eyes.  If you think your pet might be suffering from allergies, call us, your veterinarian to discuss testing and treatment plans best suited for your pet's needs.

TOP 12 DOG BREEDS MOST PRONE TO ALLERGIES:

English Bulldog, French Bulldog, West Highland White Terrier, American Bulldog, Basset Hound, Rhodesian Ridgeback, American Pit Bull Terrier, Shiba Inu, Bichon Frise, Boston Terrier, Miniture Poodle, Yorkipoo.
