Keep your pet calm this Firework Season!

TOP TIPS TO KEEP YOUR PET CALM THIS FIREWORK SEASON

1. To help your dog feel safe this year a little calm reassurance from you, should they seek it, will go a long way. Don’t fuss though, as this can make their behaviour worse. Act and behave as you normally would and most importantly remain calm as your pet will look to you for a response to the noise. Never ignore your dog if they seek comfort and give them treats when they are behaving calmly, any toys they have an attachment to will also provide some reassurance.

2. Find out when the displays are going ahead in your local area, and ask your neighbours if they are holding any firework-themed gatherings so that you can prepare. Ideally, feed and walk your dog before dusk, a while before any fireworks happen as once they start anxiety might get the better of your pet and they could become too anxious to eat.

3. Provide your pet with a little “den” they can retreat to if it all gets a bit much. This could simply be a table or a chair, with a sheet placed over it. Line the den with their favourite toys, treats and your unwashed clothes so that the familiar smell helps them feel safe. Put the radio or TV on to further reassure your animal that all is normal in their surroundings. Don’t shout at your dog for behaving erratic, this will make their behaviour worse. If they want to hide away let them do so without fussing, they’re just finding safety.

4. Keep animals inside when fireworks night is in full swing, even if they don’t act up; panting and pacing are signs of anxiety. Draw your curtains and shut your windows and doors. Block cat flaps /doggy doors and anything else that provides an escape route for your pet. Just in case, make sure they’re wearing a collar with an ID tag and that they’re micro chipped with their details up to date. Many animals are taken into shelters having ran away from home, you want to make your chances of being reunited should this happen as high as possible.


Dental Awareness!

This week we are shining the light on your Dog's teeth! Oral hygiene is often overlooked but it is so important to your Dog's overall health and wellbeing. It is so easy for your Dog to be suffering from sore gums or toothache and not even know it. The problem is, if left untreated bacteria from these issues can enter the bloodstream and affect their heart, kidneys or even their liver.

A report by Vets estimated that a massive 85% of all dogs over the age of 4 are suffering from some form of periodontal disease. Don't worry, don't stress and have no fear because all of these problems are preventable simply by ensuring that you look after your Dogs teeth with regular cleaning and check ups.

Like breakfast and dinner, dental care should be something you do for your dog everyday. Although, initially your Dog may not like the poking and prodding in their mouth, with a little care and patience you and your dog will soon be on the way to a doggie dental dream.

To help you begin this new stage in your petcare we have listed some of our favourite dental products below. Whether you choose to go for the non invasive dental chew option or a more intense toothpaste and toothbrush option, the most important thing is that you begin dental care today.
