Keeping Furry Family Members Safe

Keeping Furry Family Members Safe

For many people, pets are furry members of the family. As with any member of the family, keeping your furry family members safe is an extremely significant priority. Tips to keep your pet safe and out of harmís way are listed below.

Proper ID

Even if your pet never leaves your yard, it is particularly noteworthy that your pet wears proper identification. The identification should include your petís name and your contact information. If your contact information changes, you must make sure to immediately update your petís contact information. Proper identification means that your pet has a much better chance of being returned to you if they wander away from their home.

Appropriate Vaccinations and Maintenance Medication

It is necessary to stay up to date on your petís vaccinations and maintenance medications. This is especially crucial if you are going to go on vacation with or without your pet. You donít want to burden someone else with having to take your pet to the vet, and you surely donít want to try and find a vet for your pet while on vacation. Taking the time to make sure your pet has everything they need before you go on vacation ensures that you can enjoy yourself.

Use Proper Car Restraints for Your Pet

You wouldnít let your son or daughter ride in the car without wearing their seat belt, and the same should go for your pet. Pet car restraints can be purchased to fit any size dog, and are incredibly easy to use.

Never Leave an Unattended Pet in a Car

Pets should never be left in an unattended car. An unmoving vehicle can become incredibly hot in just a matter of minutes. Many people believe that leaving a window cracked or rolled down provides their pet with enough ventilation to be safe. However, in an unmoving car, a cracked or rolled down window does not provide proper ventilation, and can be incredibly dangerous to your pet.

Use Caution When Your Pets are Near Water

Contrary to popular belief, not all pets can swim. In fact, some breeds of dogs canít swim at all. For this reason, it is incredibly important to use caution whenever your pets are near water. This means whether you are walking on the beach or taking your dog on a boat, you want to ensure that your dog will not drown if they cannot swim. To ensure your dogís safety near water, you can purchase pet life jackets.
