World Rabies Day 2013


This years theme:



Rabies: understand it to defeat it.


Rabies is a fatal disease. There are multiple accounts of people who have died after being bitten by a rabid animal. Especially important is to educate your younger children so if they come in to contact with possibly infected animal they will not touch it. If you suspect your pet has been bitten by a rabid animal you must seek veterinarian assistance as quickly as possible. 

The Global Alliance for Rabies Control offers information for those of you who'd like to learn more. Please become educated. If your pet is due for it's vaccine, please get it done. This disease is almost always fatal. Help us to keep it under control. It's the Law.

PET EXPERT TIP OF THE DAY

8 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR DOG SAFE IN THE SUMMER
  1. Never, ever leave your dog in the car;
  2. Make sure your dog has unlimited access to fresh water;
  3. Make sure your dog has access to shade when outside;
  4. Take walks during the cooler hours of the day;
  5. When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces (like asphalt) because it can burn your dog's paws;
  6. If you think it's hot outside, it's even hotter for your pet – make sure your pet has a means of cooling off;
  7. Keep your dog free of external parasites (fleas, ticks) and heartworms – consult your veterinarian about the best product for your pet;
  8. Consider clipping or shaving dogs with long coats, and apply sunscreen to your dog's skin if she or he has a thin coat.

PET EXPERT TIP OF THE DAY!

Household pet tip for dogs from Blue Ribbon K9 Academy:

Train your dog to use a pet door by putting a dab of butter on the bottom edge of the flap. Have another person hold the dog on the side with the butter and you stand on the other side with treats. Your dog will lick the bottom of the flap, pushing it open while you encourage it through and offering treats. Happy Training!
