Summer Safety Tips for Pets
What a great pleasure it is for your dog to lay on the grass, catch some rays, have a good roll around and sniff all the pretty flowers.
But before putting your paws on that grass, or taking a good sniff of those flowers, make sure they haven’t been treated with fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or insecticides that are toxic to pets.
Just as important, make sure those plants and flowers your dog sniffs are pet safe!
Have your humans find a safe garden, field or dog park to play and run around on and make sure they wash your paws afterward your adventures.
If you ever suspect your dog has come in contact with, or ingested fertilizers or other toxic solutions, contact you veterinarian immediately!
Always store these products in areas that aren’t accessible to your pets and if you’re uncertain about the use of any product, ask the manufacturer and/or your veterinarian for instructions.
Has you dog or pet ever been exposed to a toxic product, plant or flower? If so, what kind and how did you treat it?
