Spend a Special Day with Your Pet

Treat your favorite furry or feathered friend with a special day that shows how much you appreciate them. Spend some quality time playing with your pet or take a short trip to a friend’s house where your pet can interact with other friendly pets.

Research Food and Materials Harmful to Pets

Did you know dogs and cats can die after ingesting flowers or seeds from the Datura plant? Identifying which plants or foods are toxic to your pet can prevent sickness and death. You can find several online sources that focus on substances that are harmful to pets. Although pets typically love leftover human meals, you can research which items are unhealthy for your pet and educate your family about what to avoid.

Raw pet foods can make pets and people sick

· CDC does not recommend feeding raw diets to pets.

· Germs like Salmonella and Listeria bacteria have been found in raw pet foods, even packaged ones sold in stores. These germs can make your pets sick. Your family also can get sick by handling the raw food or by taking care of your pet.

If you decide to feed your pet raw food

Wash your hands and surfaces thoroughly after handling raw pet food.

· Wash your hands with soap and water right after handling any raw pet food.

· Clean and disinfect all surfaces that the raw food touched, like countertops, microwaves, refrigerators and objects like knives, forks, and bowls.

Safely store and handle raw pet food.

· Freeze raw pet food until you are ready to use it.

· Keep raw pet food away from other food in your refrigerator or freezer.

· Don’t thaw frozen raw pet foods on a countertop or in a sink.

· Throw away any food your pet doesn’t eat.

Balanced dry food feeding

Dry food is a convenient and cost-effective way to provide your pet with all the nutrition it needs to maintain good health.The chewing required to consume dry food helps to remove plaque and tartar from your pet’s teeth. Your pet’s breath should be fresher, and they’ll also have a lower risk of developing gingivitis and dental disease.

Make an Appointment with the Vet

Celebrating National Pet Safety and Protection Month by taking your pet to the vet may not please your pet, but it’s a crucial practice that protects their health. Taking your pet to the vet at least twice a year can prevent a medical condition from accelerating into a severe case.
