Fall isn’t here yet, but school sure is and when starting a new routine, even when we have done it over and over, year after year, a quick check is always good!  There are some early-season hazards that can harm our furry friends unless we’re careful.  Here are some of the main culprits to monitor:

  • MyDogAteMyHomeworkSchool Supplies ~ What?? Yep – items like magic markets, erasers, and glues sticks are actually considered “low toxicity” when it comes to our pets. They can cause serious digestive upset and gastrointestinal blockages if consumed.  Be sure your kids keep backpacks and miscellaneous school tools well away from the four-legged family members.
  • Engine Coolant ~ Ethylene glycol-based coolants are incredibly toxic…and many pets find them sweet-smelling, so they’ll sample any spills left behind. If you change your coolant in the fall, always clean up even the tiniest spill immediately.  Better yet, switch to a propylene glycol-based coolant.  These aren’t 100% non-toxic, but they’re less damaging than other options available.
  • 112275-850x565-Garden_Snakes_IntroSnakes ~ In autumn, garden snakes and other varieties get ready for hibernation…and they can get kinda cranky if they cross paths with other animals.  Even a garden-variety snakebite is painful and traumatic to your pet.  So keep a close eye out when walking in heavily wooded areas or tall grass this time of year.

 

  • Rodenticides ~ The use of these substances increases in the cooler weather, as mice and other critters scurry indoors for warmth.  Remember that these are poisons — they’re highly toxic to our pets, and can often prove fatal.  If you do opt to use these products, always place them in an area inaccessible to cats and dogs.
  • Mushrooms ~ Spring and fall are mushroom time – and while most mushrooms have little or no toxicity, a small percentage can cause life-threatening medical issues.  The real trick is trying to distinguish one kind from the other. Your best bet is to keep pets away from any area where mushrooms are growing – and contact your vet right away if your best buddy happens to eat a wild mushroom.

TreatsDon’t forget that one of the best ways to keep pets safe is to keep them in your presence and occupied…and fall is a great time to work on training command and brand new tricks!  So stop by and stock up on Northwest Naturals Freeze-Dried Treats.  The convenient nuggets break easily to allow for quick and easy feeding while training.  These treats are available in Beef, Lamb, Chicken, Bison and Salon and are a single ingredient treat, grain free and gluten free.

You can get these for 20% off until 8/31/16 along with Northwest Naturals Raw and Freeze-Dried Food.
