Just a reminder, West Milford, about hot cars and asphalt !
Now that the weather is most decidedly warm, it's important to remember that you and your pets aren't the only ones who are out enjoying it.
Fleas and ticks are out and about, just waiting for an all-you-can-eat buffet to stroll along, which is your pet, if left unprotected.
Both fleas and ticks can cause discomfort and skin irritation through their bites, as well as allergic reactions in some cases. They can both also carry diseases and cause illness. Prevention is key to avoid these problems.
From chewables to topicals to Seresto collars, GWLAH has what you need to keep your pet flea and tick-free this summer! Talk to your pet's vet to find the flea and tick solution that's right for them!
National Pet Preparedness Month is celebrated in June and reminds pet owners to always prepare emergency plans for their pets well in advance of needing them.
In the event of an emergency or natural disaster, it's important that everyone in your house gets out safely, including your pets.
From house fires and blackouts to hurricanes and floods, such events are frightening for us and can be more so for pets, who rely on their owners to keep them safe.
Emergency plans can include knowing where to gather following an emergency, placing leashes or pet food in easy-to-remember places and putting kits together that contain everything your pet needs for emergencies, such as food, leashes, medication, clothes, etc.
It can also consist of identifying nearby shelters that can help you take care of your pet. In large-scale events such as hurricanes, having such plans ready might save your pet from running off, getting harmed or being overlooked by relief workers.
Remember, don't put off til tomorrow what can be done today! Hope for the best and plan for the worst, for both you and your pet's sake!
