Dogs and toddlers both seem to hate bath time with a passion. Buy a kiddie pool to make dog washing easier than ever! You can contain the mess, and keep your dog’s paws from getting muddy.
If you normally have your animals outside, bring them in starting tonight. There are lots of people who start the festivities early, and fireworks can be terrifying for pets. Keep them safe, and locked up if you’re having a party, that way they can’t slip out the door. Also, if your animals really get upset from the loud noises, it can help to have a little area set up for them to relax in with their favorite toys and bed. A thunder shirt can also be helpful.
Make a shelter animal’s day by giving treats to shelter dogs and cats. Grab the Milkbones or rawhides and the Temptations and go around your local shelter giving them a nice treat.
Just like you need to see the doctor, so do your fur-babies! Take your pets for their annual exams and to get all of their necessary shots and tags.
The animals at a shelter desperately need some playtime, so stop by and spend 30 minutes walking a dog or two or petting some of the cats. The animals will appreciate the love and attention.
If you’re looking for a new pet, adopt don’t shop. There are so many wonderful animals in shelters who are just hoping to find a new home where they will be taken care of and loved, and you could be the perfect person!
If you’ve ever owned pets, then you’ve dealt with the horror of fleas, especially if they go outside. Luckily, if you notice some fleas on your pet, once you get their flea meds done, go ahead and lay Borax around your house. It won’t hurt you or your pet, but it will kill the fleas. Let sit for a couple hours, and then vacuum it up.
