Dog Bites

New Year’s Resolution: Pet Exercise!

Exercise is the most common New Year’s resolution for humans and there is no reason why it can’t be for your pet too! Indoor games can keep your pet active while giving them some quality one on one time. For dogs, try some new toys like a rope to play tug with. Fetch is also a great game to play indoors with small stuffed animals. To increase the activity level try tossing the toy up stairs (make sure the stairs have carpeting or a runner to prevent slipping). If your dog likes to chase, try attaching a stuffed animal to the end of a rope. Even though going outside is difficult this time of year, indoor open areas work well too. For cats try to mix up their toys and introduce some feathery or fur-like toys on “fishing poles” that will encourage stalking, leaping and pouncing- especially right before mealtime when your cat is hungry. Interactive toys are enjoyed by both dogs and cats especially ones that dispense treats!

Pets, Pine Needles and Trees

Make sure that you clean up fallen pine needles around your tree regularly. If eaten, these needles can puncture your pet’s intestines. Make sure your tree is well secured for your pets, for people and for your delicate décor. You can anchor your tree to the wall, using strong cord or rope. Also, make sure that your pet can’t access the tree’s water

Dogs and Turkeys

As you start to prepare for the holidays, think about your pets. Lean turkey meat is a good treat for a dog but like anything else, only in moderation. Too much turkey skin can give a dog painful Pancreatitis so it is best to just not give the dog any skin off the bird. When giving your dog turkey make sure there are no bones or bone splinters in the meat.
