Spring Hazards for Cats and Dogs

Our pets enjoy spring no less than we do. Very soon it will become warm on the street, it will be possible to walk for a long time and go outdoors. But be careful: in the spring not only the sun wakes up, but also new risks for dogs and cats. We list the 5 main ones for you to prepare and protect your pet!

Danger number 1. Thirst for romance
This item is dedicated to cat owners: they know everything about the “March” songs.

If your pet is not sterilized, be prepared for round-the-clock operations. The main danger lies in open doors and windows. Even if your cat is the most obedient, he can succumb to instincts and sneak out of the apartment at any time. Unfortunately, there are many such stories and the end is often sad.

What to do?

Take care that your pet does not run out of the house when you close or open the door. Be sure to put reliable protection on the windows. The cat should not have a single chance to escape from a window or from a balcony.

Danger number 2. Ticks and fleas
If fleas are active year-round, then ticks wake up from hibernation in March. Believe me, after a winter hunger strike, they will not miss the chance to “eat”. To meet with them it is not necessary to go to the forest. Ticks live in the grass and your cat or dog can catch a parasite on a normal walk.

What to do?
Treat your pet with an antiparasitic agent. Strictly according to the instructions.

Danger number 3. Allergy
Allergy sufferers are not only among us, but also among our pets!

Spring is a contrasting time. Then the snow melts, then the frost hits again, but the first flowers are already blooming!

Pets react differently to change. Some are extremely positive, while others have an allergic reaction to reagents, dust or flowering plants.

What to do?
If you notice signs of allergy in your pet, consult your veterinarian. He will diagnose and prescribe treatment.

Danger number 4. Poisoning and Cuts
Unpleasant surprises may lurk under the snow: glass, trash, various wastes. A pet can step on something sharp or eat something (in the worst case, the bait of dog hunters or a poisoned mouse), and this is very dangerous.

What to do?
Carefully monitor your pet. If possible, clear the area for walking from the trash. Do not let the dog or cat pick up food, litter, etc. from the ground. At the slightest suspicion of poisoning, consult a veterinarian immediately.

Danger number 5. Heatstroke
Hooray, we finally waited for the sun and can walk at least all day! Fresh air is great, but don’t forget about safety. With the habit of sunbathing, you can overdo it and get a heat stroke.

What to do?
Watch your pet. Do not stay in direct sunlight for a long time. Do not chase a dog if you see that it is hot or tired.

Noticing the signs of heat stroke (heavy breathing, lethargy, redness of the mucous membranes, etc.) take the pet to a cool place and give him water. Contact your veterinarian.

We hope that our recommendations will help you protect your pets from dangers. A sunny, positive and safe spring!
