september pet care tips
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.
- Prepare for Anything – Remember that if you need to evacuate, ALWAYS take all pets with you. Learn more with our Disaster Planning for you and your pets.
- Make your reservation Now for your October pet care reservation.
