Valentine’s Day Safety Tips from the ASPCA

Each year our poison control experts see a rise in cases around February 14, many involving chocolate or lilies, a flower that’s potentially fatal to cats. Valentine’s Day can be as much fun for pets as it is for humans—as long as dangerous items are kept out of paws’ reach!

Pet-Safe Bouquets
When sending a floral arrangement to someone with a cat, specify that it contain no lilies—and when receiving an arrangement, sift through and remove all dangerous flora. If your pet is suffering from symptoms such as lethargy, vomiting or diarrhea, he may have ingested an offending flower or plant. Use our online toxic and nontoxic plant libraries as visual guides of what shouldn’t be in your bouquets.

Forbidden Chocolate
Seasoned pet lovers know that all types of chocolate are potentially life-threatening when ingested by pets. Methylxanthines are caffeine-like stimulants that affect gastrointestinal, neurologic and cardiac function—they can cause vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, seizures and an abnormally elevated heart rate. The high-fat content in lighter chocolates can potentially lead to a life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas. Go ahead and indulge, but don’t leave chocolate out for chowhounds to find.

Careful with Cocktails
Spilled wine, a half a glass of champagne or some leftover liquor are nothing to cry over until a curious pet laps them up. Because animals are smaller than humans, a little bit of alcohol can do a lot of harm, causing vomiting, diarrhea, lack of coordination, central nervous system depression, tremors, difficulty breathing, metabolic disturbances and even coma. Potentially fatal respiratory failure can also occur if a large amount is ingested.

Life Is Sweet
So don’t let pets near treats sweetened with xylitol. If ingested, gum, candy and other treats that include this sweetener can result in hypoglycemia (a sudden drop in blood sugar). This can cause your pet to suffer depression, loss of coordination and seizures.

Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Don’t let pets near roses or other thorny-stemmed flowers. Biting, stepping on or swallowing their sharp, woody spines can cause serious infection if a puncture occurs. De-thorn your roses far away from pets.

Playing with Fire
It’s nice to set your evening a-glow with candlelight, but put out the fire when you leave the room. Pawing kittens and nosy pooches can burn themselves or cause a fire by knocking over unattended candles.

Wrap It Up
Gather up tape, ribbons, bows, wrapping paper, cellophane and balloons after presents have been opened—if swallowed, these long, stringy and “fun-to-chew” items can get lodged in your pet’s throat or digestive tract, causing her to choke or vomit.

The Furry Gift of Life?
Giving a cuddly puppy or kitten may seem a fitting Valentine’s Day gift—however, returning a pet you hadn’t planned on is anything but romantic. Companion animals bring with them a lifelong commitment, and choosing a pet for someone else doesn’t always turn out right. Those living in the New York City area can let their loved one choose their own cat with a gift certificate to adopt from the ASPCA. If you’re not in New York, check your local animal care shelter or take a romantic trip to the shelter together.

Respiratory Problems in Dogs

BRACHYCEPHALIC DOG BREEDS

Brachycephalic dog breeds can be quite a challenge to care for. It doesn’t stop most of them from being some of the most popular breeds around, though. Learn what Brachycephalic syndrome is and how you can take care of a breed with this health problem.

Flat-faced dogs, like Boxers, Bulldogs, and Boston Terriers can be cute, but their short noses also cause breathing problems. These brachycephalic dog breeds can suffer from snoring and snorting. These may  seem like harmless ailments, but these common issues of short-nosed dogs mean the dog’s airway is partially obstructed, and this can become worse over time if left untreated.

WHICH BREEDS ARE BRACHYCEPHALIC?

Brachycephalic means “shortened head” and refers to the short nose and flat face of dogs like Pugs, Shih Tzus, and Chihuahuas. Other brachycephalic breeds include Chow Chows, Pekingese, Lhasa Apso, Bull Mastiffs, and English Toy Spaniels. Because the flat face is so popular, these dogs have been bred for their looks, but many suffer from airway issues as a result. The flat face is the result of a smaller upper jaw, in which the tissues inside are bigger than the jaw can allow. All of the airway issues that can result from this overcrowding are collectively referred to as “brachycephalic airway syndrome.”

WHAT OTHER PROBLEMS DO BRACHYCEPHALIC DOGS HAVE?

Eyes and Eyelids: Brachycephalic dogs’ eyes tend to stick out of their skull a little more than others. Sometimes it’s difficult for eyelids to close over their eyes (even while sleeping). They are also more vulnerable to vision issues if hit on the head.

Teeth: Brachycephalic dogs have the same number of teeth as other dogs, but less space to fit them all, which can lead to peridontal disease.

Feline Leukemia and What You Need to Know!

Feline Leukemia Virus Infection (FeLV) in Cats

Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is a disease that impairs the cat’s immune system and causes certain types of cancer. This virus infection is responsible for a majority of deaths in household cats, affecting all breeds. Males are more likely to contract the infection than females, and it is usually seen between the ages of one to six years old.

Some of the more common symptoms of cat leukemia include:

  • Anemia
  • Lethargy
  • Progressive weight loss 
  • Abscesses
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Persistent diarrhea
  • Infections of the external ear and skin and poor coat condition
  • Fever (seen in about 50 percent of cases)
  • Wobbly, uncoordinated or drunken-appearing gait or movement
  • Inflammation of the nose, the cornea, or the moist tissues of the eye
  • Inflammation of the gums and/or mouth tissues
  • Lymphoma (the most common FeLV-associated cancer)
  • Fibrosarcomas (cancer that develops from fibrous tissue)

Causes

Cat leukemia is usually contracted from cat-to-cat transmission (e.g., bites, close contact, grooming, and sharing dishes or litter pans). It can also be transmitted to a kitten at birth or through the mother’s milk. Kittens are much more susceptible to the virus, as are males and cats that have outdoor access.

Diagnosis

Your veterinarian will first rule out other infections such as bacterial, parasitic, viral, or fungal. In addition, nonviral cancers need to be ruled out.

A complete blood count is done to determine if the cat has anemia or other blood disorders. Diagnosis may also be determined by conducting a urinalysis, or through a bone marrow biopsy or bone marrow aspiration (removing a small amount of marrow fluid for study).

AAHA, hospice association release end-of-life care guidelines

The American Animal Hospital Association and the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care have released guidelines on end-of-life care for pets.

End-of-life care and decision-making “embody the critical final stage in a pet’s life and are as important and meaningful as the sum of the clinical care provided for all prior life stages,” according to the abstract for the 2016 AAHA/IAAHPC End-of-Life Care Guidelines.

? ?
? ?The Animal Hospice Care Pyramid appears in guidelines on end-of-life care for pets. (Courtesy of AAHA) ?

The guidelines provide practice teams with the framework and tools to develop a comprehensive, collaborative end-of-life plan and better recognize the needs of patients, clients, and team members during this difficult time.

According to the guidelines:

  • End-of-life care and decision-making are medically, emotionally, and ethically challenging for everyone involved.
  • Studies have shown that 30 percent of pet owners will experience substantial grief following the loss of a pet, and 50 percent will question their decision following euthanasia.
  • Veterinary team members are at higher risk of compassion fatigue when they work with patients nearing their life’s end and their owners and are immersed in an environment of intense emotional and physical suffering, often of extended duration, with little group support.

The guidelines review the latest information to help staff address central issues and perform essential tasks to improve the quality of life of a pet who has entered the final life stage. In addition, these guidelines define the role of each staff member so everyone on the practice team can work together to offer the best-quality medical care.

The sections of the document cover animal versus human hospice care, patient considerations, client considerations, veterinary health care team considerations, and the end-of-life event.

The guidelines appear in the November/December edition of the Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association

Winter Bathing – Tips/Tricks

Keeping your dog clean is important year round, but giving your companion a bath during the cold, winter months requires a few special precautions.

While you should avoid bathing your pet too often during cold spells, it might occassionally be necessary to give your dog a bath in winter. During the winter months, salt and grime can collect on Fido’s coat, making a good cleaning essential to maintaining its health and hygiene.

But with frostier temperatures outside, pet parents must step up their efforts to keep their dog warm at bathtime. Here are a few tips that can help ensure the comfort and safety of your pet, both during and after a winter bath.  

Indoor bathing tips

While the setting of a summertime bath might be outside under a hose, winter baths should always happen indoors. Prior to the bath, consider turning up the heat in your home and/or placing a heater in the bathroom (make sure it’s off the floor and away from water).

Test the temperature before inviting your dog into the bathtub. Make sure the water is warm but not too hot; you can fill the tub with few inches of warm water to give your pet a warm place to stand.

Tips for shampooing:

  • Use a moisturizing shampoo. Have your vet recommend a moisturizing shampoo and/or rinse. Moisturizing or oatmeal shampoos are best during the winter months, as this is a time when pets are more susceptible to dry, flaky skin.
  • Lather quickly. Suds up your pooch quickly in order to reduce its exposure to cold air.
  • Rinse well. After you’ve massaged the shampoo into the coat, make sure to rinse well, leaving behind no trace of soap residue.
  • Consider dry shampoo. If your pet is just stinky, not dirty, consider using a dry shampoo. Waterless shampoo powders and sprays can help to remove odors and oils, but they may not be right for the job of giving your pet a deep cleaning.

After the bath

Keep your newly clean pup warm by towel drying him right away. If you’ve got a long-haired dog, you might need more than one towel and possibly a blow dryer.

If you’ll be using a blow dryer to finish the task of drying your dog, be sure to use it on the lowest setting possible. Hold it at least 12-inches away from your pet’s coat to keep from burning your dog’s skin.

Finally, keep your pet inside until they’re completely dry.

Best Chew Toys for Big Chewers!

This is an image of a black Labrador Retriever with his toy chickens.

It’s no secret, dogs love to chew. But some breeds are worse than others and require something to constantly chew on. So, rather than risk them gnawing on your furniture or your favorite pair of shoes, invest in some quality dog toys that are best for big chewers. Here’s a few that are tried, tested, a proven to work great.

1) Kong Classic

Kong is one of the most trusted brands in dog toys, especially solid rubber ones for mega chewers. The Kong Classic is a bulbous red toy that’s sort of resembles a stubby snowman. The weird shape of the dog kong causes they toy to flop around awkwardly and dogs just love it. The best part of these is the fact that their almost solid rubber, aside from the hollow center that allows you to stuff a yummy treat inside. Do that and watch them go nuts!

2) NylaBone

I love this brand; they make the best nylon based chew toys for my bull dog. Normally, regular bones or toy bones are gone within minutes of her receiving them. But NylaBone makes a chew toy that’s built to last. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but most have nifty little bumps and textures to make chewing even more fun for them. This one is even bacon flavored!

3) NylaBone for Puppies

Don’t forget the puppies, hey love to chew more than any of them! The problem with puppies is that they have small mouths and delicate little teeth. So, make sure to get them a special chew toy made just for them. Like this variety pack of NylaBone for puppies. These are some of the best puppy toys.

4) Rawhide

There’s a ton of misconceptions about rawhide for dogs. But you can wean out the bad from the good by making sure you buy quality products made from real ingredients. There are some brands on the market that use plastics and other less than stellar substances in their “rawhide”, but what you really want is 100% real cow or pig rawhide for you dog. These are great for chewing and are also a yummy treat that lasts longer than two seconds.

With big breeds, make sure to get them the large pieces, not the tiny ones they can choke on. Those are best reserved for small dogs like Shih Tzu and Chihuahua.

5) West Paw

West Paw makes great chew toys for all breeds, but what’s so great about them is that their toys float in water and they’re non-toxic and BPA free. These are little softer than that of the NylaBone type toys, but still just as durable. Most are solid rubber and come in cool colors like this Hurley in teal!

And there you have it! There’s tons of great dog toys on the market for big chewers, you just have to go through trial and error to see which one work best for your pup. I listed these because I have a big slobbery bulldog and she loves each of them. They work, last long, and keeps her away from my shoes.

Best Pets for Families with Kids

Are you thinking about getting a pet for your family? Do you have small kids at home and are nervous about what animals will and will not work well with them? Well, this list is a great source of ideas and a perfect place to start when searching for the best pets for families with kids.

1) Dogs

Of course dogs would be at the top of this list! Everyone loves dogs and they’re the ultimate family pet. However, there are some breeds that are best for families with kids due to their durability, energy levels, and maintenance.

Bull dogs, despite societies misconceptions, are amazing family pets. They’re loyal, protective, are built like bricks walls, and require very little maintenance aside from cleaning their faces.

2) Pigs

This is an unlikely addition to this list but pigs are seriously great family pets. Much like a bull dog, they’re built strong and can stand up to the rough housing kids often do. They’re just as clean, or even cleaner at times, as dogs and are super playful.

3) Hamsters

Sadly, hamster became a common family pet because they don’t live that long. They’re branded as the “starter pet”, but really should be taken more seriously than that. Hamsters are fun, playful, and can teach younger kids minor responsibilities.

4) Guinea Pigs

In same the light as hamsters, guinea pigs often get chosen as the starter pet. But they’re even better than hamsters! Bigger, fluffier, and more playful. Sounds good to me! My kids loved their guinea pig.

5) Fish

A simple goldfish would do, but you can spruce up the tank with angel fish, bottom feeders, and clown fish. The kids love watching them and you can teach a little bit of responsibility with the feedings and cleaning of the tanks.

6) Birds

Although a lot of people find birds to be annoying and loud, they make really great family pets. They interact well with other birds, are easy to clean up after, and some breeds, such as budgies and parrots, can be taught to speak. Canaries and finches are really playful and are great with small kids.

7) Cats

There are dog people and then there are cat people. So, for those of you who prefer the feline variety, a cat would make an excellent family pet. They basically clean up after themselves, require very little training, and are super cuddly.

8) Snakes

Snakes are incredibly low maintenance and make a great first time, starter pet for families with kids. Corn snakes and ball pythons are the best. They only require to be fed once a week, cage cleaning once per month, and no special cleaners required. And despite what most people think, snakes very rarely bite unless starved or taunted.

9) Turtle

You never have to worry about these guys running away. They’re easy to take care of and live a long time. Turtles are resilient and co-exist really well with other turtles. Great family pet.

cats, dogs, best pets for families with kids

And that about wraps it up! There are tons of great first time pets or best pets for families with kids, but this list sums up the most common species to consider first.

cats, dogs, best pets for families with kids

Of course, if you’re ever in doubt, you can always go see your local pet care provider or quality pet store. They’ll have tons of information about what pet would be great for your particular household.

Pet Manners in Public – What You Need to Know!

img_6489

Some rules of “petiquette” from the experts:

Don’t confuse manners with laws: Having your pooch on a leash and making sure licenses and vaccines are up to date are requirements in most municipalities.

There also may be laws requiring cleaning up after your dog, aka “pooper scooper” laws.

Owners should research regulations not only for their municipality but also any public place. (Trained hearing or service dogs are usually permitted to accompany their owners wherever the public is allowed.)

Street sense: The website of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals offers tips for walking your dog. (go to aspca.org and search for “walking 101”). Keep Fido off the neighbors’ lawns and gardens. Also use a leash that allows the dog space to roam but isn’t too long.

“The well-trained city dog needs to respond to a minimum of four basic commands: ‘sit-stay,’ ‘heel,’ ‘leave it’ and ‘come,’” the website notes. Great article – read more here

Xylitol: More Dangerous Than Chocolate, Yet Less Well Known About

Do you know what xylitol is? Are you (fully) aware of the danger it poses to dogs? You wouldn’t be alone if you answered “no” to either, or even both of these questions. In our ongoing Pet Safety Awareness survey over 50% of the respondents weren’t aware of xylitol or the danger it poses to dogs until they took the survey! By comparison, you’d be hard pressed to find a dog owner who isn’t aware that chocolate can be toxic to dogs. Right?
Yet xylitol can be far-more-dangerous to dogs than chocolate! The picture below shows the minimum amount of dark chocolate that could cause death in three different weights of dog — compared to the minimum number of pieces of xylitol-containing sugar free gum that could have the same devastating effect.

chocolate-xilotol-pic

Dark chocolate quantities based on National Geographic’s interactive chocolate chart. Xylitol-gum quantites are calculated based on a concentration of 1 gram of xylitol per piece of gum, and a xylitol dose of 0.5g/kg resulting in liver failure. (*Note that the amount of xylitol in gum is highly variable, and not always noted on the packaging. Read below for information on our efforts to change labeling standards and see what you can do to help.)
The (Double) Trouble With Xylitol
This general lack of awareness of xylitol and the danger it poses, coupled with the high toxic potency of xylitol in dogs, and presents a huge problem! And it’s a problem that’s getting bigger every year, as xylitol is gaining in popularity and being added to more and more common products. In fact, odds are good that you have something containing xylitol in your medicine cabinet, your pantry, or even your PURSE right now… without even being aware of it!

Which Products Contain Xylitol?
Here’s a List!
Please exercise extreme caution and keep these products out of reach of your dogs. If you suspect your dog has ingested a product containing xylitol contact your veterinarian, Pet Poison Control or go to your local Animal ER right away.
