Essential oils should not be considered a trend, phase or a fad.  Essential oils are actually used to treat many health and behavior problems in your pet. Arthritis, skin allergies, anxiety, and wound care, are only a few of the many conditions that can be treated through the use of essential oils or aromatherapy.

Here are just a few examples of popular essential oils and their amazing healing properties:

  • Carrot Seed: promotes scar healing, soothes dry, flaky skin, acts as an anti-inflammatory
  • Chamomile: soothes the central nervous system, relieves muscle cramps
  • Geranium: repels ticks, relieves skin irritations and fungal ear infections
  • Majoram: muscle relaxant, wound care, insect repellant
  • Peppermint: treats motion sickness and nausea, relieves arthritis, strains and sprains

Are essential oils safe?  Many pet parents worried about the potency of essential oils but most essential oils are safe when used properly.   Due to the high concentration, it is imperative that you dilute all essential oils in carrier oil such as almond oil or olive oil.  However, some oils are toxic to your pet so you must exercise caution and always do your research before you use anything (and ask a holistic veterinarian, to be on the safe side).  

You MUST avoid the following oils:

  • Anise
  • Camphor
  • Hissop
  • Juniper
  • White thyme
  • Yarrow
  • Birch
  • Wintergreen
  • Cassia
  • Clove leaf bud
  • Horseradish
  • Mustard
  • Tansy
  • Pennyroyal
  • Rue
  • Wormwood

How do I use essential oils?

Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways.  The most common use of essential oils is through topical application.  Oils are absorbed through the capillaries in the skin.  The oils can be massaged or spritzed on the skin or added to a lotion, shampoo or salve. Some oils may be ingested however, please only use this method under the direction of a holistic vet.  Experimenting on your own could cost your dog his life.  You may also use a diffuser, which will enable your dog to inhale, or breathe in the oils as they evaporate in the air. Simply turn on the diffuser two times a day for about 30 minutes and you should see results by the seventh day.

Now that you know a little bit about aromatherapy and your dog, we hope you’ll do further research to explore the healing, soothing powers of these oils.  Just remember to always use 100% pure oil and it must be of therapeutic grade.  This is one cost you do not want to skimp on, folks.

What are the Benefits of Overnight Pet Care

What are the Benefits of Overnight Pet Care?

 

Author, Noelle Dunn, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Finding the perfect place for your pet’s care when you have to go out of town is a very stressful thing for many pet owners. Quite often people postpone trips and time away from home for the sheer fact they don’t want their pet to suffer or be uncomfortable. These days your options are unlimited, when it comes to pet care. While there are many options there is one that can’t be beat. In home, overnight pet care is the best. Here are a few of the reasons why you need to consider overnight pet sitting as an alternative to other care services such as kennels or group boarding facilities.

– Routines won’t change. Most pets love their routine. It’s comfortable and a known. Mealtime, playtime and walks. Hugs and love to boot. Sticking to these schedules makes your pet feel comfortable. Your being away from them is stressor enough. Deviate from a routine and it can stress your pet even more.

– Home Sweet Home. Your pet would much prefer being home in their environment. Sights, sounds and smells of home keep the pets feeling secure. Your pet can sleep in their own bed, play with their own toys and pitter patter around without the nuisance of being locked up in a room full of cages with other animals. Taking your pet elsewhere for care while you’re away can further stress them which can lead to stress related illnesses. 

– Security – For your pet as well as your home. Seeking out home care for your pet is an excellent security system. Keep your home and your pet safe with someone staying there over night, someone will to turn on lights, make a presence known and keep your pooch company. It keeps your pet safe from danger and prevents possible vandalism and break-ins while you’re away because your home doesn’t look vacant.  Not only that, if a pipe bursts or some other at home problem occurs, your pet sitter can notify someone of the matter, possibly saving you thousands of dollars.

– Illness. As mentioned earlier being separated from your pet can stress them out. Stress can lead to illness. Additionally taking your pet to stay at a daycare/kennel, where many other dogs are and their stress levels rise, they can catch colds or illnesses spread by other dogs. Diseases can be spread in kennel environments. It’s not worth the risk.

Avoid the stress for you and your pet, and Leave knowing your pet will be home, safe and sound. Look for a Professional Pet Care Provider. Research a few businesses before you make a decision. Check out their website, make sure the owner’s history is on there, read articles, look for experience and expertise.  Read our other articles on what to look for in a pet sitter to help keep you and your pets safe.

Happy pet owning !!

Pet Care Tips

From

A NH

Pet Care 

Professional

Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Having been in the animal field most of my life, working in animal welfare, animal rescue,

Animal Hospitals and now in the Largest NH Pet Sitting Company, I have put together a few

Pet Care Tips for every month, here is the Month of January.

Update Calendar

As you flip over to the new year.  Put reminders when your pet’s Veterinary Visit is due.  Include Annual physical, vaccines and Heartworm check (for dogs).  Do not forget to check their teeth.  Dental health should be checked annually.

Keep Pets Inside

Rule to keep in mind – if it is cold out for you, it is cold out for a pet.  If they are to be outside for any length of time, Please make sure that they have a full shelter to get out of the cold, rain, snow and wind.  They can freeze and get frostbite just as we can.  

Check your car/truck’s engine before starting

Many Cats, wildlife and other animals may try to keep warm inside a vehicle. Engines are nice and warm right after you come home and park.  Sometimes clapping your hands and speaking loudly may scare an animal away.  If you can, open your hood and inspect the inside before starting.  

Increase the calories

If your pet will be spending alot of time outside, you may want to increase food.  Keeping warm takes added energy.  

Keep Pets away from any puddles

Puddles may contain antifreeze.  It is lethal to pets and humans.  Animals can be attracted to it because it is sweet.  Clean thoroughly if you spill.  

Check paws

Check paws daily for chapped and cracked paw pads.  Use Bag Balm to keep soft.

Use a Sweater

Short coated dogs may get cold very fast.  Consider buying a coat or sweater to help.  Boots may be hard for them to get used to but may also be a good idea. 

Wipe Paws

Wipe paws, feet and legs after each walk.  They may pick up deicers, salt, antifreeze or other chemicals while walking.  You would want to clean that off before your pet has time to lick off. 

Avoid all Ice on Lakes/Ponds

Unless your know for SURE that the ice is completely solid and 6 or more inches thick with temperatures below freezing consistently for at least 3 or more weeks, do not even chance your life or your pets life.  

Be Prepared

Be Prepared for severe weather, blizzards & power outages.  Have a plan in place that includes pets if you must leave your home.  Never leave your pets, even if people say you will be back in a little while, too many times, something happens and that little while may be a day or longer.  Also have extra food and water for you and your pets.  Check out our Disaster Planning for You and Your pets for more Helpful ideas.  

Help Your Neighborhood Stray

Help any cats or dogs that may be abandoned in your neighborhood.  Many pets are left behind with owners hoping some kind person will take them in.  Or that abandoned female cat, has kittens and now there are feral kittens in the neighborhood.  If you can contact organizations to help trap them, they can help the animals find homes.  If feral, there are organizations that will trap them, make sure they are healthy, spay and neuter them and find barn homes for them or if you will help feed and make them a shelter, they can be returned to live out their life without having more kittens.  

Speak Out if you see a Pet in the Cold

If you see a pet consistently kept out in the cold, rain, snow.  Say something to your local animal control.  Document everything you see, dates, times, if you see anyone giving fresh water or food.  It could mean life or death to that pet.

Protect Horses Too

Horses and other livestock need shelter as well.  They need to be able to get out of the cold, rain, snow and wind.  To keep warm, they also need extra food.  Water needs to be checked often so that it is not frozen.  

Make February Reservations Now

If you have any FEBRUARY dates you will be away, especially for the February School vacation, please make your reservations NOW to ensure availability. 

 

If you adopt a puppy or dog this month

CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up Dog Walking/Mid Day Let Out so they have a break while you are at work and you will be ready when you may need a pet care visit anytime in the future.

 

If you adopt a kitten or cat this month

CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up Feline Fun Time, we can take care of the litter box and give then one on one attention while you are at work, plus you will be ready when you may need a pet care visit anytime in the future.

Pets as Gifts – Is it a Good Idea

Gifts

Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

You have a pet lover on your gift list and thought a new pet would be the perfect gift.

Please think long and hard before giving a living breathing animal as a gift. Pets as gifts require many things to consider.

 

The times that many people think of giving a pet as a gift are Birthdays, Easter, Christmas and after a person has lost a beloved pet. Weeks and months after a pet is given at these times is also the times these pets may be given up. If not given up, the pets may enjoy a wonderful life but the joy of choosing one’s own pet was not given.

 

The one thing I have witnessed over and over again in all the years that I have been in animal welfare is when an animal chooses a person, the bond is special. If you have ever been chosen by a pet, you know what I mean.

 

Keep in mind – 

  • Adding a pet to a family is a very personal choice.
  • Not every pet is right for every family
  • Not every family is right for every pet
  • What you may think is the perfect pet maybe the last thing the person receiving would actually get for themselves.
  • A person may prefer to add a dog instead of getting another cat or may decide to add a cat instead of another dog.
  • Maybe they prefer a male over a female or the other way around.
  • Maybe they absolutely love black but would never consider another black pet because it reminds them of the one they lost and it would be too painful.

 

If there was a loss of a pet, and they are grieving, many people think getting another pet to replace that pet will help.  Keep in mind, a pet that was deeply loved can never be replaced. Grieving is a very individualized thing.  Some people do well with adding a pet soon after that loss, some take much longer. It took me 5 years after losing my Siberian Husky before I was ready for another dog. If you bring a pet to a grieving person who may not be ready, you may add to that grieving if they must give up the new pet as well.

 

Adding a pet to a family is a decision that is a long term decision. Dogs and cats can live 15-20 years or more. Large bird breeds can live upwards of 50 years and it is advised to put them in your will and trust (all pets should be as well).

 

Then there is the financial aspect of owning pets. In the first year, expenses can run into $1000-2000 with pet food, vaccines, spay/neuter, etc.  If it is a pet that has medical issues that are not known when acquired, it could be higher.

 

A pet as a present will require a lot of time and money from the person that will be receiving the pet. Can they handle this?  Do they want to?  There is a lot to consider and if this will be a surprise, you may think you know all the answers but maybe the reason this person has not gone out to get a new pet is because it is not the right time.

 

So, should you throw this idea out the window?  Not necessarily.  Here are some ideas on giving the gift of a pet without actually giving a pet. This way, when the recipient is ready, all they have to do is choose.

 

You can make up a basket or fill a decorated box with everything they need.  Or fill a crate or pet carrier. Fill with everything on our list (lucky person and pet) or choose just a few.

 

Ideas For Dogs – 

  • A note letting the person know that when they are ready you will be happy to take them to choose their pet
  • A note stating that you will pay for the pet of their choice
  • Pet Care Gift Certificate for mid day let out for a puppy while they are at work or dog walking for their new dog or whenever they may need a pet care visit at their home from a professional pet sitting company (Professional Pet Sitting Etc has gift certificates in any amount)
  • Pooper Scooper
  • Pet waste bags and carrier
  • Leashes, collars, harness
  • Pet Identification
  • Pet Video Camera
  • Pet GPS
  • Microchipping
  • Training Gift Certificate
  • Training/behavior books and videos
  • Pet Insurance
  • Animal Hospital Gift Certificate
  • Care Credit information (this is a special line of credit to be used for your pet whenever it is needed.  This can be used for regular or unexpected medical, emergencies, etc.  Depending on the amount, you could have up to 6 months interest free to pay off the balance. Bonus is that this can also be used for human medical and dental as well!)
  • Pet Food (enough for a few days, a week, a month)
  • Grooming Gift Certificate
  • Brushes, combs
  • Nail Clippers
  • Toys of all sorts
  • Treats
  • Beds, blankets

 

Ideas For Cats – 

  • A note letting the person know that when they are ready you will be happy to take them to choose their pet
  • A note stating that you will pay for the pet of their choice
  • Pet Care Gift Certificate for Litter box cleaning while they are at work or whenever they may need a pet care visit at their home from a professional pet sitting company (Professional Pet Sitting Etc has gift certificates in any amount)
  • Litter Scoops
  • Litterboxes (at least two)
  • Leashes, collars, harness
  • Pet Identification
  • Pet Video Camera
  • Pet GPS
  • Microchipping
  • Training/behavior books and videos
  • Pet Insurance
  • Animal Hospital Gift Certificate
  • Care Credit information (this is a special line of credit to be used for your pet whenever it is needed. This can be used for regular or unexpected medical, emergencies, etc. Depending on the amount, you could have up to 6 months interest free to pay off the balance.  Bonus is that this can also be used for human medical and dental as well!)
  • Pet Food (enough for a few days, a week, a month)
  • Grooming Gift Certificate
  • Brushes, combs
  • Scratching posts and trees of all sizes
  • Nail Clippers
  • Toys of all sorts (especially laser and feather toys)
  • Treats
  • Beds, blankets

 

If you are planning on giving another type of pet such as a bird, hamster, guinea pig, rabbit, duckling, chick, etc.  Please do ALOT of research.  There are Facebook groups for all of these pets and more.  Ask questions on what they would love as a gift for complete care for the type of pet you are considering.

 

If your friend rents, please check and find out what is allowed.  If you are thinking of a German Shepherd puppy and the rental agreement only allows cats and dogs under 25 pounds, that will be a bit disappointing.

List of Pet Friendly Rentals

 

If you are thinking of a horse, pony, ducks, chickens, goats, etc. You may need to check with the city your friend lives in to make sure that their home is zoned for such animals. Also, these are animals that will need a building for them to be housed in. You may need to do further research for housing plans, costs and make sure there is room and zoning for that as well. Ducks and chickens may also be in danger of wildlife in the area, so please take that into consideration.

 

What are some ideas that you can give to a Pet Lover without giving an actual Pet?

 

If they already have pets –

  • Pet Care Gift Certificates – they can always use help with pet care if they go out to dinner and need a supper visit or a dog walk when they are gone all day(Professional Pet Sitting Etc has gift certificates in any amount)
  • Animal Hospital Gift Certificate
  • Really anything on the above two lists will work

If they do not have any pets and a new pet is not right at this time – 

  • Donate to a local shelter or animal organization in the person’s name
  • Donate to a local shelter or animal organization in the person’s pet’s name

Happy Gift Giving !!

Pumpkin and Your Pet

IMG_2188

Is Pumpkin

Good for

Your Pets

Author, Noelle Dunn, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Pumpkins.  We see them everywhere throughout the autumn season.  We carve them for Halloween, we display them along with some fall foliage and scarecrows indoors, and out and of course, we put pumpkins in our pies for Thanksgiving.  Pumpkin not only symbolizes the onset of the holiday season but pumpkin is very healthy for your dog and cat.  How so?  Keep reading!

 

Pumpkins are an amazing antioxidant! Antioxidants are powerful substances that counteract the damaging effects of oxidation in living organisms. Pumpkins have beta-carotene, alphacarotene, fiber, potassium, zinc, vitamin A and fiber.  Sound familiar?  These antioxidants are also necessary for a healthy human diet!  What is good for the goose is good for the gander right?

 

Additionally, pumpkin is an all natural way to prevent constipation and diarrhea.  Just a couple of tablespoons of canned pumpkin and your pooch’s tummy troubles will be a thing of the past.  This is due to the high fiber and water content that pumpkin contains.  We love all natural remedies!

 

Wait, there’s more!  Your pet can eat the pumpkin seeds as well!  Just be sure to roast them first!  Finally, here’s a treat you can share with your pet.   The seeds are filled with vitamins, fatty acids ….more antioxidants!  The taste isn’t the only benefit either!  The seeds promote good urinary healthy as well as a silky, shiny, soft coat of hair!  You can store roasted pumpkin seeds for up to a month!

 

Is your pet on a diet?  Is he turning his nose up at his diet doggie food?  Well, pumpkin also promotes weight loss.  The fiber will help your pet feel full quicker! Your pet will lose weight and enjoy every minute of it!  Of course, he still needs a good amount of daily exercise but hey, that’s where we step in the picture! Call us !!

 

Pumpkin is an overall healthy option for your pet.  Just don’t let them eat your jack-o-latern.  As soon as you cut open a pumpkin, it begins to collect bacteria and allowing your pet to eat a jack-o-latern (especially one that’s been displayed for awhile) is a sure fire way to end up in the vets office.

Pumpkin Pie for Everyone !!

How to Choose a Pet Sitter

Lisik Castelot

 

How to

Choose

a Pet Sitter

 

 

 

   Author, Noelle Dunn, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

The most stressful part of going out of town, whether for vacation or business, is finding someone to watch your beloved pet.  Many people’s first thought is to enlist the help of a friend or neighbor to watch their pets while they are away.  Some people opt for boarding for kennel, while others choose a pet sitter.   In home pet sitting is growing in popularity.  It is convenient in the service they provide as well as the fact it is the least stressful option for your pets.  If you are looking for someone to come into your home to meet your pet’s needs while you are away, keep reading for important things to consider when choosing a pet sitter.

Is the pet sitter you are considering a professional pet sitter or someone who pet sits as a hobby or to earn a little extra cash?  The best pet sitters are professionals that are known in their community and have extensive experience. They should be registered to do business in your state, bonded and insured.  A professional company will have a company website with testimonials from happy clients.  A professional company will do background checks and training and have employees.

Is the Pet sitter you’re considering have business experience?  If they have been in business for at least 5 years, chances are they have run into problems and have policies in place to handle them.  Do they know what to do if your dog gets bit by another dog, stung by a bee, or suffers from heat stroke?  Who will they call?  What is the emergency plan of action?  Every reputable company has a plan of action and all of their pet sitters are well schooled on how to handle all types of emergencies.

Is there a contract or service agreement?  There should be!  This provides protection for you and the pet sitter.  It also minimizes any miscommunication as far as what services are provided and exactly what you can expect from the pet sitter.   Your prospective pet sitter should provide time to speak with you and allow you ample time to ask questions.

Finding someone to take care of your pet while you’re away can be scary and confusing but if you do the proper foot work before you leave, you’ll no doubt leave your pet in the hands of a trusted, respected professional while you’re away.  If you have any questions on how to choose a pet sitter, please call us. We’d love to guide you through the process.

We also have plenty of information on our website to help you make the best informed choice in pet care.

September Pet Care Tips

Cat

Ricky enjoying a warn autumn day

As a Pet Care Professional since 1978,

I have learned a few Pet Care Tips

  Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

Having been in the animal field all of my life, working in animal welfare, animal rescue,

Animal Hospitals and now in the Largest NH Pet Sitting Company, I have put together a few

Pet Care Tips for every month, here is the Month of September

 

 

  • Beware of School Supplies – It’s back-to-school time, if you have been school shopping, you may have fun items like glue sticks, pencils and magic markers. These items are considered “low toxicity” to pets and children.  This means they’re unlikely to cause serious problems unless large amounts are ingested. However, since gastrointestinal upset and blockages certainly are possible, be sure your children keep their school supplies out of paw’s reach and younger siblings. 
  • Lonely Pets – Also Back to school and back to work may mean that your pets, who have been used to your presence all day long are now spending long hours alone.  This may bring on depression for your pet.  Some pets may get destructive.  This is a time to think about a routine dog walking service to burn off excess energy that they are not getting now that they are alone.  For puppies and elderly pets, they will need that middle of the day potty break.  If you do have an elderly pet, getting them up and moving around can help with their circulatory system and help with arthritis.  
  • Call us today to ask about a routine Dog Walking/ Mid Day Let out package.  
     
  • Training tip: If you and your pooch haven’t been active outdoors in a while because of the summer heat, do some remedial recall training. Dogs, like people, get rusty on their skills if they aren’t using them. 
  • Toxic Mushrooms – Fall and spring and are mushroom seasons. While 99% of mushrooms have little or no toxicity, the 1% that are highly toxic can cause life-threatening problems in pets. Unfortunately, most of the highly toxic mushrooms are difficult to distinguish from the nontoxic ones, so the best way to keep pets from ingesting poisonous mushrooms is to keep them away from areas where any mushrooms are growing. Contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center immediately if you witness your pet eating a wild mushroom. 
  • Keep Pets Inside – The cold weather months are just around the corner.  Protect your pets by keeping them inside and having a disaster plan in place for them in case you lose power for an extended period of time.
  • Make your reservation Now for your October pet care reservation.
  • If you adopt a puppy or dog this month CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up Mid Day Let out so they have a break while you are at work and you will be ready when you may need a pet care visit anytime in the future.
  • If you adopt a kitten or cat this month – CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up Feline Fun Time, we can take care of the litter box and give then one on one attention while you are at work, plus you will be ready when you may need a pet care visit anytime in the future.

 

Happy Pet Owning !!

Heatstroke and How to Prevent it in Your Dog

Heatstroke Signs and Prevention for Your Dog

Author, Noelle Schueller, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

The Summer Heat is soaring and while summer weathers entices us to be outdoors playing with our dogs, you must understand just how harmful the heat can be for your dog. Dogs are highly susceptible to heat stroke over the summer and it’s nothing to scoff at.  Heat stroke can be deadly!  Read on to learn exactly what you need to know!

 

What exactly makes my dog susceptible to heat stroke? 

 

Dogs pant to cool themselves down but their body cooling system is not quite as effective as the human body’s system – sweating.  A dog pants in order to exchange the hot air in his body for the cool air in the atmosphere.  However, when the hot temperatures outside are too close the heated temperature of the dog’s body, then the dog’s body system is ineffective!  It’s your job as pet parent to prevent heat stroke in your dog.  Here’s how:

 

  • Never leave your dog in a car in hot weather.
    • The car can heat up to dangerous and deadly temperatures within minutes of you exiting your car. For example, when it is 85 degrees out, a car will heat up to 102 degrees within ten minutes!
  • Don’t exercise your dog in hot OR humid weather.
    • Early morning hours or late evening is the best. Mid-day sun exposure is the most dangerous.
  • Avoid any prolonged exposure on asphalt or other areas without shade.
  • Fresh water and shade should ALWAYS be made available to your dog.
  • If your dog is elderly or has an illness such as lung or heart disease or a history of heat stroke, exercise extreme caution when exposing him to the heat, even mild heat!
  • Never muzzle your dog during warm temperatures – it makes it difficult for him to breathe!
  • Don’t shave your dog . 
    • An inch or two of hair serves as insulation against the extreme temperatures and also protects your dog from sun burn. 
  • Brush your dog daily to prevent matting. 
    • Matting prevents the skin from cooling, in addition the combination of heat and matting can lead to hot spots!

 

Signs of heat stroke in dogs:

  • excessive panting
  • rapid breathing
  • glazed eyes
  • thick saliva
  • vomiting
  • bright red gums and tongue
  • rectal temperature of 104 degrees

Cat Scratch Disease

Amanda thinks fleas are horrible Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

We Can Get

Cat Scratch Disease

from our cats!

.

.

 

  Author, Noelle Schueller, for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

 

 

 

 

Did you know that Cat Scratch Disease is caused by the bacteria in flea feces?  I know you’re thinking “ewwww”.  We agree, but you need to be informed about this! This is transmitted to humans via a scratch or bite by an infected cat.

 

How Do Cats Get Cat Scratch Disease?

 

Fleas carried the Bartonella henselae bacteria, which happens to be the most common bacteria associated with Cat Scratch Disease.  When a cat gets fleas, fleas leave flea dirt on the cat.  When the cat scratches or chews on himself, the flea dirt gets under his claws.  A cat then transmits it to humans by biting or scratching, usually while playing.  The National Center for Infectious Disease reports that about 40% of all cats carry the bacteria associated with Cat Scratch Disease sometime in their lives.  The tricky part is that most cats that carry the bacteria never show any symptoms of the disease.  In addition, there is not one single test used to diagnose Cat Scratch Disease in Cats so ordinarily, a clear diagnosis is only sought after in cats that are seriously ill.  Antibiotics can be given to treat this disease in cats however, it’s not always effective.

 

Symptoms of Cat Scratch Disease in humans

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Skin irritations and/or bumps
  • Loss of Weight
  • Lethargy/Fatigue
  • Join pain

 

Preventing Cat Scratch Disease

  • Put in a place a flea prevention regime for your pet
  • Trim your cat’s nails
  • Wash any bites or scratches from your cat with soap and warm water
  • Keep your cat indoors
  • Avoid playing rough with your cat as this leads to biting and scratching
  • If you have an already compromised immune system, consult with your doctor before adopting a cat.

If you suspect your cat or one of your human family members may be infected by Cat Scratch Disease, seek prompt medical attention.

 

Did you find this article interesting?

Were you aware that your cat could infect you with this?

Of course, if your cats stays inside and is free of fleas, the likely of this happening is very small.

NH Animal Laws on Free Pets and Pets for Sale

Kitten

Would you trust this baby to anyone you have not checked out? professional Pet Sitting Etc.

Do you have a free Pet?  Or a pet for Sale?

 How do the animal laws in NH affect you?

 Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

Every state has its own laws pertaining to animals of all shapes, sizes and breeds.  Our state of New Hampshire is no different.

When I became certified for Animal Abuse Investigation, we had to know and study all of the laws pertaining to animals in the state of New Hampshire.

In this article, we will be focusing on the two laws that pertain to any person, business or organization that has animals to give away free of charge or for an adoption fee, re-homing fee or just being sold.

The two laws here go together and I will explain what they mean.  Keep in mind that the laws were put in place to protect the public and to protect the animals that are being placed.  So, we may not like them but they do have a place.  If everyone were making sure the pets they were placing were healthy, up to date on vaccines and were giving these pets happy, healthy forever homes, then maybe these laws would not be needed.

 

Here are the NH Animals Laws (actual links to these laws are at the end)–

The actual Laws are in BLACK

Explanation is in RED

CHAPTER 437
SALE OF PETS AND DISPOSITION OF UNCLAIMED ANIMALS

Transfer of Animals and Birds

Section 437:1

 437:1 License Required. – No person, firm, corporation or other entity shall engage in the business of transferring with or without a fee or donation required, to the public, live animals or birds customarily used as household pets unless the premises on which they are housed, harbored or displayed for such purposes are duly licensed and inspected by the department of agriculture, markets, and food of the state of New Hampshire.

 

This section shall also apply to commercial kennels and to any person, firm, corporation, or other entity engaged in the business of, including activity as a broker, transferring live animals or birds customarily used as household pets for transfer to the public, with or without a fee required, and whether or not a physical facility is owned by the licensee in New Hampshire when transfer to the final owner occurs within New Hampshire. These provisions shall not effect the provisions of RSA 437:7.

What does this all mean?  It means that ANY person transferring ownership to another person must be licensed.  A license is $200 per year. This means that whether you have one pet or one litter of kittens or 100 pets, the law states that you must be licensed. 

 This pertains to ANY person giving an animal away for FREE or if there is a fee. 

So, again, this means ANY person.  You do not have to be a breeder, you do not have to have a store, you do not have to be asking a price.

Does this mean that if you are re-homing one pet or one litter that you need to have a license? Technically, yes but you probably will be fine.  However, if you are rehoming more than a pet or litter, someone may notice and fines may be involved.  If you are planning on doing it more, I would suggest applying for a license. It is easier to comply than worry. 

See the definitions BELOW  for “Broker” and “transfer” . 

If you are looking for a home for your unwanted litter of kittens you will be acting as a “Broker” negotiating finding them homes. 

When you find a home, you will be “transferring” ownership to a member of the public.

 

Section 437:2

    437:2 Definitions. – In this chapter:
I. “Animal shelter facility” means a facility, including the building and the immediate surrounding area, which is used to house or contain animals and which is owned, operated and maintained by a duly incorporated humane society, animal welfare society, society for the prevention of cruelty to animals or other nonprofit organization devoted to the welfare, protection and humane treatment of animals, and also a public pound for the housing of strays or a pound operated by any person, excluding veterinarians, who contracts with a municipality to serve that function.
I-a. “Commercial kennel” means any person, business, corporation, or other entity that transfers 10 or more litters or 50 or more puppies in any 12-month period.
II. “Department” means the state department of agriculture, markets, and food.
III. “Pet shop” means any establishment licensed to keep, maintain, and transfer certain live animals, birds, and fish at retail to the public.
IV. [Repealed.]
V. “Broker” means any individual or entity acting as agent or intermediary in negotiating or transferring dogs, cats, or ferrets when transfer to the final owner occurs in New Hampshire.
VI. “Transfer” means transfer of ownership of live animals, birds, or fish from any person, firm, corporation, or other entity to a member of the public.

 

Section 437:10

 437:10 Dogs, Cats, and Ferrets. –
I. No dog, cat, or ferret shall be offered for transfer by a licensee without first being protected against infectious diseases using a vaccine approved by the state veterinarian. No dog, cat, bird, or ferret shall be offered for transfer by a licensee unless accompanied by an official health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian. No transfer shall occur unless the transferred animal or bird is accompanied by a health certificate issued within the prior 14 days. Said certificate shall be in triplicate, one copy of which shall be sent to the state veterinarian, one copy of which shall be for the licensee’s records, and one copy of which shall be given to the transferee upon transfer as provided in paragraph II. If an official health certificate is produced, it shall be prima facie evidence of transfer.

 

So what does all of this mean??

Well, it means that ANY person giving any animal away for FREE or being sold must be licensed as stated in the first section. Now all of these people are referred to here as “Licensees”.

 

It is required that all dogs, cats and ferrets being transferred to a new owner must be vaccinated according to what is appropriate for the age of the pet AND a health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian that is less than 14 days old.
II. The original of the official health certificate accompanying the dog, cat, or ferret offered for transfer by a licensee shall be kept on the premises where dogs, cats, and ferrets are displayed, and made available for inspection upon request. The public will be informed of their right to inspect the health certificate for each dog, cat, or ferret by a sign prominently displayed in the area where the dogs, cats, or ferrets are displayed. Upon transfer of the dog, cat, or ferret, this health certificate shall be updated by the licensee if any other medication or treatment has been given by a licensed veterinarian or the licensee to the dog, cat, or ferret and shall be given to the transferee in addition to any other documents which are customarily delivered to the transferee. The transferee may accept a dog, cat, or ferret that has a noncontagious illness that has caused it to fail its examination by a licensed veterinarian for an official health certificate under paragraph I; the transferee shall sign a waiver that indicates the transferee has knowledge of the dog, cat, or ferret’s noncontagious medical condition and then submit such waiver to the licensee who shall send a copy to the state veterinarian.

 

This means that if you do sell or give any pet away for free, that you are to keep a copy of the health certificate.  If there is any question by anyone as to the health of the pet, you must make it available. The health certificate shall include any and all medicines and treatments along with any other medical documentation and all copies given to the new owner.

 

If a pet fails to have a clean bill of health, making it unable to obtain a health certificate, if the animal has something that is Not contagious, then the new owner can sign a waiver acknowledging the medical condition and a copy is sent to the state.
    III. Animal shelter facilities, as defined in RSA 437:2, I, are exempt from the requirements of this section relative to transferring dogs, cats, and ferrets except that: 
       (a) All animal shelter facilities shall have on premises a microchip scanner and shall maintain a file of recognized pet retrieval agencies including but not limited to national tattoo or microchip registries. 
       (b) Where an owner is not known, all animal shelter facilities shall inspect for tattoos, ear tags, or other permanent forms of positive identification and shall scan for a microchip upon admission of an unclaimed or abandoned animal as defined in RSA 437:18, IV and prior to transferring ownership of an unclaimed or abandoned animal. 
       (c) All animal shelters shall comply with the provisions of RSA 437:10, V and RSA 437:13-a, IV. 

The above pertains to all rescues and shelters
IV. No person, firm, or corporation shall ship or bring into the state of New Hampshire, to offer for transfer in the state of New Hampshire, any cat, dog, or ferret less than 8 weeks of age. No licensee shall offer for transfer any cat, dog, or ferret less than 8 weeks of age.

The above states that NO person shall bring into the state of New Hampshire any pet under 8 weeks of age

Also, no animal in the state can be transferred to a new owner less than 8 weeks of age
V. Once a dog, cat, or ferret intended for transfer has entered the state, it shall be held at least 48 hours at a facility licensed under RSA 437:1 or at a facility operated by a licensed veterinarian separated from other animals on the premises before being offered for transfer.

 

The above states that any animal transferred into the state of NH must be held at a licensed facility for 48 hours before going to a new owner

 

FINES –

If reported that a person is transferring animals without a valid health certificate, people have reported being fined $600-1000 per animal.

REPORTING INCOME – 

If you are selling or asking for a fee for any animals and you are making over $600 in a calendar year, that income must be reported to the IRS and taxes must be paid on that income.  Failure to do so, could also result in fines.

 

LET’S RECAP –

 

ANY person, firm, corporation or entity (like a shelter, rescue, business, group, etc) who has one pet or many, whether they are for FREE or for sale

 

Must –

Obtain a license

Pets must be 8 weeks or older

Pets must be up to date on vaccines

Pets must have a health certificate dated within 14 days

 

If you are bringing pets into NH from out of state

You must have these pets held at a licensed facility for 48 hours AND do the above before they can go to a new home

 

Again, Does this mean that if you have one pet or one litter someone is going to come and arrest you for not being licensed?  Probably not.

However, if you continually, have litters for free or being sold,

or you are finding free or low cost pets and re-homing them (pet flipping),

or you find pets out of state (see section 437:10 for more laws on this) and bring them into NH to find homes,

then at some point there is the probability that someone will come to enforce this.

 

If you are getting a new pet, at the very least  know the following–

 

Does the pets and premises look and smell clean and healthy

No runny eyes, no sneezing, no coughing

Are the pets at least 8 weeks or older (kittens and puppies need that development with their mom and siblings until then, it is very important for them mentally and medically)

Do they have all the vaccines required for their age

 

Wouldn’t the worst thing be to find that your pet ended up being used to train a dog for fighting?  If you think that does not happen in NH, think again.

Or that you find the most amazing pet, bring him home, only to find two days later he is sick and the vet tells you he has a debilitating disease and that FREE pet will now cost $3000!!

 

All of this information is not meant to be annoying but to help you find great forever homes if you need to and to help you find amazing healthy pets to enjoy.

 

Here are two other articles that I have written to help find safe homes and help obtain

Healthy pets, please use them whenever you need to –

 

What to ask when you need to find a home for your pet

What to ask when you are looking for a new pet
