Pet Safety During the Summer

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

Summertime means that you and your family, including pets, will be spending more time outdoors. However, the new season can also bring along dangers for our pets and the last thing you would want is to have an accident. The death of one of your beloved pets along with a summertime pet memorial is not a good summer memory. Here are some tips to help your family stay safe this summer, especially your pets.

Warm weather means it is time to plant pretty flowers in the yard. However, many species of plants and flowers are poisonous to pets. And plant pesticides can also be deadly for your pets. Your veterinarian should have a complete list of plants and flowers in your area that should be avoided. Also make sure to check the labels of gardening products you purchase for pet safety, or use organic pesticides and fertilizer in your garden.
