5 Spring Dog Safety Tips
1. Beware of Toxic Plants. – When I think of Spring, the first thing on my mind are flowers. Last weekend, I was admiring the Wisteria flowers in our community. Sugar too, so I immediately checked ASPCA. Wisteria is a toxic plant to dogs. For precaution, check the complete list of nontoxic and toxic plants at ASPCA.org. Program ASPCA’s 24/7 Animal Poison Control Center number, 1 888 426 4435, on your phone.
2. Protect Your Pet from Fleas and Ticks. – There are many ways to protect your dog from these pesky fleas and ticks. Be a smart pet parent. Select a product to best suit your dog’s need. Any concerns about product types and ingredients, always consult/discuss with your veterinarian. Try to choose a natural way to prevent and get rid of fleas. Have you tried Wondercide Flea & Ticks for Pets + Home?
3. Beware of Toxic and Harmful Chemical. – Springtime means Spring cleaning. Be mindful and use dog friendly cleaning products. Many public lawns are chemically treated. Be on guard on where you take your dog for playtime. On your property, use non-toxic lawn products such as Wondercide’s Flea & Tick for Yard + Garden, an effective outdoor treatment and will not harm your family, dog and the environment.
4. Travel Safely with Your Dog. – Many families go on a Spring Break vacation with their dog. There are steps you can take to ensure your dog enjoys the trip as much as you do. First and foremost, when traveling by car, be safe and buckle up your dog. Sugar always travel safely and buckled-up with Sleepypod Clickit Sport dog harness.

5. Enrich Your Dog’s Life. – There are various ways to keep your dog mentally and physically active. Take your dog on daily walks and/or play fun, interactive games. For older dogs, adjust the type of activities. Remember that “old dogs can learn new tricks.”
