Pet Points

November 2018

There is no doubt about it . . . winter is coming. Make sure your small and short haired dog is prepared with coats, boots, and lights for their collars. It is also important to remember that at this time of year, there are often people coming and going from your home, and you should be aware of your pet's whereabouts at all times. Since we have seen many new dogs owners these past few months, we thought we would revisit a couple of seasonal articles that might help some of the new pet owners. Scroll down to see more

DOES MY DOG REALLY NEED A COAT OR SWEATER?
As the temperature starts to drop, you will start to see more dogs wearing coats or sweaters. Many people think this is just owners wanting to dress up their dogs, but in many cases it is a big help in keeping your dog warm and dry. Northern dog breeds like Huskies or Malamutes do perfectly fine in our Canadian winters without any protective clothing, but many other breeds will feel the cold and will benefit from some coverage. The most vulnerable dogs are smaller dogs, older dogs, and the thinner bodied dogs such as greyhounds. You may also find your dog is more willing to go outside and "do their business" if they are warmer. There is no harm in putting appropriate clothing on your dog, so if you are not sure if your dog needs it, chances are if you're cold, so is your dog, so go ahead and put something warm on your pooch!
It is still early in the holiday season, however once the season swings into full gear, there are some extra precautions you should take. While most Christmas trees are generally non-toxic, you don't want your dog or cat munching away on them, so make sure your pet cannot get at the tree if they seem overly interested in it.  Always make sure you vacuum up anything that might fall off the tree.  Tinsel and ribbons can cause blockages and needles and shattered ornaments can certainly cause pain and damage to your pet's paws. And remember some curious pets (especially puppies) want to chew on electrical cords, so make sure your cords are well hidden.

Many decorative plants available at this time of year can be toxic.  Make sure poinsettias, mistletoe and holly is well out of reach.  Also people often forget that things hiding in presents can be toxic, batteries and chocolate are two things you definitely don't want your pet getting into.
