Amherst Pet Blog:  Winter Checklist for Your Pet

First, the basic supply list:

Do you have enough of the following items to last a few days, should the roads become unsafe for travel or the veterinary office is closed?

  • pet food
  • litter
  • fresh water supply
  • soft warm bedding
  • any medications your pet takes on a regular basis

Now for the safety checklist and weather considerations:

  • Outdoor pets
    Some pets are better suited than others for living outdoors. There is a common misconception that dogs will be "fine" if left outside. This is not true! All pets need adequate shelter from the elements and insulation against cold weather. Pets should not be left outside for long periods in freezing weather - like humans, they can suffer from hypothermia and frostbite.

Amherst Pet Blog: Eight Tips to Help You and Your Pets Safely Enjoy the Holidays

Amherst Pet Blog:  Eight Tips to Help You and Your Pets Safely Enjoy the Holidays

Holidays can be extremely fun for humans, but may pose hidden risks for pets.  These eight tips will help keep your pets safe this Holiday season.

 

Don’t be a turkey on “Turkey Day.”

Holiday treats, such as rich, fatty scraps, bones from pork and poultry, alcoholic beverages, chocolate and other sweets and candies can be harmful or toxic to pets. These foods have been linked to pancreatitis in pets. Signs and symptoms of an inflamed pancreas include vomiting and abdominal pain. Severe pancreatitis requires emergency medical care and treatment.

 

O (No) Christmas Tree!

Pet Connection Needs Your Immediate Support!

How can you help? Please show your holiday spirit by purchasing tickets to the shelter’s Holiday Dinner Dance & Auction from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday, December 4 at the Hearthstone Manor in Depew.
