How to Keep Your Pets Safe

By admin | July 10, 2011

Our animals are like little furry, or scaly, family members. We want to keep them safe so the will be around for us to love for years to come. Here are a few things I have learned over the years to help keep our animals safe.

Always Provide Water

You don’t have to let them free-feed all the time but make sure they have ample access to water. Animals can’t just tell us when they are thirsty.

ID Tags Are Easy

For around 7 you can run into almost any local pet store and have an ID tag engraved with your dog or cat’s name, address and telephone number. Okay, they can’t call you but if they get spooked and run off whoever finds them can.

Shade Or Indoor Access

Summer months mean high temperatures across most of the US. When the mercury rises so does our pets vulnerability to the elements. Keep a nice shaded area for your pet to cool off in or, better yet, install a dog or cat door.

Vaccinations

Keep your pet up-to-date on their vaccinations. Heartworms, parvo and a variety of other diseases can be hard to diagnose and can kill a beloved pet. Spend the little bit of money it costs and have your pet vaccinated yearly.

This is by far not a comprehensive list of ways to keep your pet safe, just a good starting point. Use a little common sense and your fur baby will be loving you unconditionally for a long, long time.Still bored? Click to continue: Shots and Pills: Vaccinations for Your Horse
