Holiday Weekend Pet Safety

Memorial Day weekend is upon us. We have our annual Blues Festival here in Silver City and it’s a fun weekend of music, dancing and maybe even a beer or two. Many of you will be having family and friends over to celebrate and maybe a little BBQ action is in store. Others may be headed for the beach or the river to escape the heat. Whatever your plans, don’t forget the pets. Holidays can be stressful, and in some cases dangerous times for pets.

Memorial Day is right up there with the Fourth of July when it comes to pets getting lost. Be very careful with cats especially when family and friends are coming and going a leaving doors and windows open.

Here are a few more tips to help keep your cat and dog safe:

1. Talk to the kids, and in some cases, the adults. Let them know how to approach and play with the cat or dog. Some cats don’t take kindly to being picked up by a little stranger, let alone grabbed by the tail. Same goes for the dog. You’ll need less antibiotic ointment and fewer band aids if you lay a few ground rules.

2. Leashes, collars,tags and chips: Make sure the cat and dog have their collars on and discuss the rules for taking them outside or for walks. If you use tags to identify your dog or cat make sure the info is up to date. If you micro chip your pet make sure the info in his database is up to date, too.

3. Windows and doors: With all the family and guests coming and going escapes can be a real issue. Stressed dogs and cats may seize any opportunity to bolt. Keep a watchful eye and see number 2 above.

4. Food: Try to keep the pets on their normal diet. Hold the rich food, desserts, chocolate and raisins. They won’t feel left out if you deny them their own rack of ribs. If each one of your guests gives them an itty, bitty treat it can add up fast. It’s enough to clean up the kitchen after a Memorial day cookout let alone cleaning up after a sick dog or cat.

5. Give them some attention: Your pet is going to be dealing with a lot so don’t forget to take them for walks and give them plenty of pats and hugs. They will need it. You probably will, too. Your pet, unlike your mom, sibling or in-law, probably won’t look askance as you grab that second piece of pie or don’t grab that second piece of pie, for that matter.

6. Finally, if the lake, river or beach is on the agenda, use some common sense. Many dogs love the water and unless they are good, experienced swimmers, they can get into trouble just like the kids or aunt Milly. It’s ok for them to jump in a take a swim, but don’t try for an Olympic distance record when you are heaving the stick.

Some dogs may be totally inexperienced around the water. I’ll never forget the first time I took Darcie in the canoe. She got up on the seat and calmly stepped off right into the river. She had no idea that the water surface would give. It was a shocking revelation for her.

Miles is a very strong swimmer like most Labs, but we take him swimming all the time and we know his limits even if he does not. If your dog is not familiar with the water, don’t throw the ball or stick out into the current or across the river. Don’t throw it too far into the lake either. They can easily become exhausted if they are not used to swimming for exercise and they will drown if you are not careful.

Even pet insurance can’t revive a dog or pull one from the current of a rushing river.  One final word of caution; unless you are a strong swimmer yourself, avoid the temptation to go in after a struggling pet. I know this is hard advice, but every year someone drowns trying to save a pet that should not be in trouble in the first place. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of heroics in this situation.
