Spring Time

With all the nice weather we have been having, I think we can all agree that Spring is finally here.  This means your favorite furry friend will want to be spending more time outdoors.  Here are some tips to ensure your yard and home will be safe for them:  

Have a garden or planning to plant one:  Be sure to use only plants that are safe if they happen to be your pet’s choice of chews.  Toxic plants include lilies, azaleas, rhododendrons and oleander.  Don’t forget, some mulch products (i.e., cocoa mulch) are also toxic to pets – the smell is so attractive to dogs.

Spring cleaning might be on your list of things to do – make sure you check the labels or ask companies if their products (paints, solvents and fertilizers) are safe for your pet.

Avoid injuries to your pet by covering or rounding metal lawn edging; if not, your pet could slice their feet or incur extensive injuries.

Engage your pet with exercise and puzzle toys, or something similar, to keep them from wanting to dig those new plants that are popping up in the yard.   Not only will they not destroy your new plants, but it will help their mental and physical agility.
