School’s Out for Summer!
Having Fun – Oregon is a beautiful place for outdoor adventure. This is the time of year that we take our furry friends to the beach, hiking and camping. But don’t forget about indoor only pets! Every dog and cat is different, but most still like to play. Smaller pets can play fetch in the house (yes, some cats like fetch too!) or do “living room agility.” Learning new tricks can be great for burning off energy and keeping our pets’ minds healthy and sharp. Need some ideas? How about: shake paws, sit up or spin in a circle.
Staying Safe Outside – Our summers may not be extreme, but pets that are accustomed to staying in can definitely suffer heat stress when they start enjoying the summer weather. Watch for excessive panting, slow recoveries, exhaustion and weakness. Even with our overcast skies, cars still become a dangerous oven in no time flat! (This heat phenomenon also happens in greenhouses and sun rooms) The beach is great fun, but wildlife abound that can carry contagious disease or turn a fun day into a veterinary visit (no, Fido, the porcupine does not want to make friends).
Enjoying the Summer Holidays - Keep in mind that friendly barbeques and picnics are full of delicious but hazardous foods including bones and corn cobs. Play dates for our pets are a great way to burn some energy, but keep an eye on your frolicking Fidos to prevent fights and injuries. If your pets are nervous around guests, try giving them a room of their own while people are visiting. They will thank you for providing a safe haven with toys and food so they can relax.
Independence Day - Fireworks can be extremely frightening for our pets. Options to help reduce stress include: keeping Fido or Fluffy in a room without windows during the show, playing a radio to help cover noise, using a Thundershirt to decrease anxiety and mild sedation if needed to help your pet get through the night. If you find that this is a truly terrifying experience for your furry friend, now is the time to start with Desensitization and Counter Conditioning training so you will be ready when the New Year rolls around!
