Spring Pet Safety Tips
March 11, 2021

With every new season comes potential dangers for our pets. Keep your furry friends healthy and happy with these spring safety tips from our team.

Household Cleaning Products

Always read labels for pet safety warnings and keep cleaners out of paws’ reach.

Seasonal Pests

Make sure your pet is up to date on flea, tick and heartworm prevention.

Springtime Blooms

Tulips, lilies, daffodils, and azaleas can be particularly dangerous to pets.

Lawn and Garden Hazards

Fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides are toxic if ingested. Cocoa mulch is also dangerous because it contains theobromine, the same compound found in chocolate.

Microchip

More time outdoors = more chances to escape. Once your pet is microchipped, make sure your contact information is up to date.

Hairball Prevention

Spring is shedding season for many pets. Ask us about the best remedies you can use at home.

Screen Safety

Ensure all screens are snug and sturdy to prevent any falls.

Unfriendly Fungi

Wild mushrooms can be a very dangerous dinner for your pets.
