June Is National Pet Preparedness Month!

Are you prepared for the unexpected? Not only is June the real kick off to summer, but it is also National Pet Preparedness Month!

Accidents can happen when you least expect it, especially when it comes to our furry friends. While we can’t predict when accidents or illness will occur, we can certainly educate ourselves and prepare for certain situations that can arise.

Before taking your animal on an adventure this summer, it is important that they are seen for an annual examination by your veterinarian! It will give you an insight into the current health of your pet, and an opportunity to make sure your pet is on the proper parasite prevention product. Ticks, fleas, and other internal/external parasites are most active during the spring and summer months!

One of the best things you can have on hand when enjoying the outdoors with your pet is a Pet First Aid Kit. These kits can be purchased online, or you can even make your own! If you are putting together your kit, we recommend having the following items:

  • Leash
  • Muzzle
  • Tweezers
  • Water
  • Bandage Material ( Gauze Squares, Gauze Roll
  • Thermometer
  • Medical Tape
  • Scissors
  • Tick Twister
  • Alcohol Swabs
  • Flash Light

It is also important to have a copy of your pets medical records and contact information for the closest emergency clinic.

It is important to be aware of the symptoms of common ailments that can occur while getting out and about in the summer time. Familiarize yourself with the signs of heat stroke and dehydration as these are among the top summertime hazards that your pet can face. Be sure to check your pet over for ticks before coming in from your outdoor adventures!
