***************************************Pet Summer Safety Tips*****************************************

*Beware of insect bites. If your dog is bitten or stung, remove the stinger and watch the site for an allergic reaction. If a reaction occurs or there have been multiple wasp, bee or mosquito bites, take the animal to the vet.

*Talk with your veterinarian about flea and tick prevention medications. This year is expected to be the worst we have seen for ticks in Upstate New York.

*Heartworm is a common problem for dogs. Take your dog to a vet for a heartworm check every spring and follow your vet's advice for heartworm precautions.

*Most lawn and garden products may be hazardous. Make sure that plants and fertilizers within your cat's and dog's reach are not toxic.

*Never leave your dog unattended in direct sunlight or in a closed vehicle. Heatstroke can occur and lead to brain damage or death. Signs of heatstroke are panting, drooling, rapid pulse and fever. Immediately immerse the dog in cool water and seek emergency veterinary assistance.

*Always make sure your dog and cat has access to fresh water.

*Try to avoid strenuous exercise with your dog on extremely hot days and refrain from physical activity when the sun's heat is most intense.

*When the sun is cooking, surfaces like asphalt or metal can get really hot! Try to keep your pet off of hot asphalt; not only can it burn paws, but it can also increase body temperature and lead to overheating. It’s also not a good idea to drive around with your dog in the bed of a truck – the hot metal can burn paws quickly (and they can fall out to be injured or killed in an accident).

*Don’t assume your dog can swim well. Just because dogs instinctively know how to swim, doesn’t mean they’re good swimmers. And if your dog jumps in your swimming pool, he might not be able to get out without help and could easily drown. Make sure your dog can’t get into your swimming pool without you around.

*Lilies are a big 'no-no' for feline-friendly homes and gardens. Lilies are toxic to cats. Just one lily leaf, if eaten, can hurt your cat - but any part of the plant is dangerous, including the pollen and flower.
