Article Feature - Keep Fido Safe This 4th of July!
Guest Denise FleckAuthor: Denise Fleck 

The weeks before and after the Fourth of July are among the busiest at Animal Shelters across the country. Fireworks can be fun for you, but dangerous for your pets.

Loud booms and flashing fireworks make humans "oooooo" and "awwww", but they chase our dogs and cats from the safety of their homes. Pets become disoriented and end up miles away, and those are the lucky ones. Many more meet their fate by running frantically into the path of a car.

Be a responsible Pet Parent this Fourth of July and make sure you provide a safe environment for your four-legged best friends. Although you may be tempted to bring them along to enjoy the festivities, think again, and follow a few rules so that your dog or cat will be safe and happy when the fifth of July rolls around.


Close the drapes and turn on a radio or television to mask any noise and distract the pet's attention from the pops and bangs. Triple check that all doors, windows and gates are secure, and if your pet is easily agitated, make sure someone stays with him during the festivities.


Enjoy your cookout, but keep your pets on their normal diet. Burgers, fries, salty chips, and fried chicken can all upset your pet's stomach while fats from an abundance of these fats can result in pancreatitis, alcoholic beverages can result in a coma or respiratory failure. Chocolate can be lethal.

If swimming is on the agenda, make sure you watch Fido. Just because he's a dog doesn't mean he knows how to swim. For boating activities or near lakes and streams, a doggie life-vest is appropriate attire.

Keep pets far away from sparklers and firecrackers. One spark on precious fur and you'll need an emergency trip to the veterinarian. Allow paw, snout or any part of your furry friend close to a firecracker, and the results could be deadly.

Paws Off

Keep insect repellents and sunscreens out of reach. If ingested by your pet, these products can result in neurological problems, vomiting and diarrhea. This includes citronella candles and other such items.

Make sure your pets can't find your matches or lighter fluid. Some matches contain chlorates which if ingested by Fido can damage his red blood cells, cause difficulty breathing or even kidney problems. Lighter fluid can irritate the skin, cause gastrointestinal, central nervous system and pulmonary distress.

Also, since the hot days have arrived, make sure your pet doesn't walk on any surfaces that could burn his paws. If it's too hot for your bare feet, it's too hot for Fido's four paws! Be aware of the dangers of Heat Stroke and make sure your pets have plenty of cool, fresh water and shade to retreat to. Getting over heated can result in permanent brain damage and death to your pet, so never, never, never leave him alone in a parked car -- even for a short time. It only takes a few minutes (with the windows rolled down which can present a danger in itself) for the car to heat to deadly temperatures.

When day is done, you'll be happy to have taken extra care so that your pets will be around to spend many long and happy years by your side.


Did You Know...
Poison Ivy - Poison Oak?
The other day on my regular trip to Dad's to drop Butch off, my Dad mentioned that his eye was swollen shut when he woke up. After looking at it I realized that he was correct. I'm not a Doctor but with my keen intellect and quick thinking I said, "Hmmm, It's not supposed to do that, something must be wrong!" GENIOUS! Once again I have a commanding grasp of the's a gift. Anyway, he put a cold compress on it and I told him it might be an allergy so he took some Benedryl and within a day the swelling went down and he can see problem. Well, one did it get that way in the first place? I then remembered that Butch,Buttons, and Bosco are prone to explore the fringe of the shrubs at the border of his yard. I also know that they can rub against any type of poison ivy/oak or anything that might be growing there. They then go back in the house and jump in Dad's lap. He pets them, doses off and rubs his EYES when we wakes up, putting anything he picked up from petting the dogs in his eye! We all do it without thinking, nothing new here but be careful. Although our pets are not prone to react to the oils from these plants they can carry it around on their coats and we can easily, unknowingly pick it up from them. Last year I caught a NASTY case of Poison Ivy from Butch and he never had a problem from it. I know it was from Butch because it was on the outside of my right calf where he ends up sleeping next to me! I also killed the poison ivy and poison oak at the edge of my yard last fall where his ball rolls! So Keep Your Eyes Open! HA! See how I tied that in...pretty good huh? Take care!
