Pet Portals

WOW!! Summer went by so fast! And we hope that it was a good one for you and your furry friends. Fall is upon us with Winter starring us in the face. With the colder weather coming remember that outdoor pets need special attention this time of year. Shelter away from cold and rain (and wind) as well as the ability to get to their food and water that has been protected from the elements. I cannot imagine having to eat food out of a bowl that has been rained on, or having my water frozen so that all I can do is lick the ice. One of the most important things to remember this time of year with the all the different holidays coming, is that pets do not have the same digestive systems that we do and do not handle people food as well as most of us. If you want to give your pet a treat or make them feel special, avoid the turkey, dressing, ham, (and even worse, bones) and instead buy a special toy or just spend extra time in play or cuddling. And with the cooler weather don't think that the fleas and ticks will go away. We are fortunate to live in an area of the country where we do not have freezing weather that lasts very long. The trade off is that the fleas and ticks (and mosquitoes) have a chance to hatch and start their life cycles again. So keep using your flea/tick products, and especially your heartworm preventives every month.
