The Weather is getting hot and we want to remind all pet owners to take care of your pets with the rising temperatures, so your dog can have a safe, happy Summer.
Heartworm Preventative: As the weather warms, the potential for mosquitoes increases. See your Veterinarian for tests and preventative medications right away.
Flea & Tick control: Protect your pet from parasites that can spread disease. Make sure your pet has the correct flea and tick preventative applied every month.
Limit Excercise on hot days. Take care when exercising your pet. Adjust intensity and duration of exercise in accordance with the temperature. On very hot days, limit exercise to early morning or evening hours, and be especially careful with pets with white-colored ears, who are more susceptible to skin cancer, and short-nosed pets, who typically have difficulty breathing. Asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet's paws, so walk your dog on the grass if possible. Always carry water with you to keep your dog from dehydrating.
Provide ample shade and water. Any time your pet is outside, make sure he or she has protection from heat and sun and plenty of fresh, cold water. In heat waves, add ice to water when posible. A doghouse does not provide relief from heat, in fact, it makes it worse.
Never leave your pets in a parked car, not even for a minute, even with the car running and air conditioner on. On a warm day, temperatures inside a vehicle can rise rapidly to dangerous levels. On an 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside a car with the windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, temperature will reach 120 degrees. Your pet may suffer irreversible damage and could possibly die.
Watch for signs of heatstroke. Extreme temperatures can cause heatstroke. Some signs of heatstroke are heavy panting, glazed eyes, a rapid heartbeat, difficulty breathing, excessive thrist, lethargy, fever, dizziness, lack of coordinations, profuse salivation, vomiting, a deep red or purple toungue, seizures, and unconsciousness. Animals at particular risk are senior pets, overweight pets, pets with medical conditions and pets who are not use to excercise. If you suspect your pet has heatstroke, ACT IMMEDIATELY! Get your pet in the shade and apply cool towels to your pet (not cold towels.) Get your pet to your Veterinarian immediately!
CARING FOR YOU SENIOR DOG
It is difficult to come to terms with the fact that your pet is aging. It is also important to recognize the signs of aging and to ensure your dogs quality of life doesn't change. Here are some helpful tips for you and your senior pet.
Proper nutrition is essential for your pet's health. Talk to your veterinarian about the special diet needs that you're pet may require.
Your senior pet still needs exercise for their mental and physical health. Just be sure not to overdo, short less strenuous walks are good.
Keep your dog at a healthy weight. Ask your Veterinarian to recommend the proper amount of food for your senior pet's weight maintenance.
Don't ignore your senior pet's dental care. Tarter can build up, causing gingivitis, which can allow bacteria into the blood stream. You can brush your pet's teeth at home and provide gum care, but talk to your Veterinarian regarding your pet's dental health during your next visit.
Why Do We Have Adoption Fees?
Spaying and neutering
Vaccinations, including Distemper, Kennel Cough, Parvo, and Rabies and De-wormer.
Food and Shelter. This includes providing shelter, blankets, dog houses, food, with some dogs requiring special food for special diets. Also, we provide toys and treats.
Flea control, grooming supplies, and bathing.
Medical Care and Medications, which can be quite costly to the Rescue. We frequently use eye medications, ear medications, skin medications, intestinal medications and also we provide x-rays when needed and any emergency or any other needed medical attention when necessary. The cost to provide care for just one dog can be anywhere between $150.00-$500.00, and depending upon the particular situation, possibly more. This of course does not include costs involved in maintaining the rescue, maintenance and other day to day operational costs. Please remember, we do not receive Federal or State Funding. The adoption fees we charge allow us to to continue to care for these animals.
A common question among adopters is why do we have adoption fees? Shouldn't the dogs be free or at least discounted because they are rescue dogs? When you adopt a dog from our Shelter, your fees are helping with the continious costs involved in the care of the dog. These costs typically include, but are not limited to:
