The San Francisco SPCA Launches Online Guide for Summer Pet Health & Safety
Date:7/30/2009

st in preventing cats and dogs from falling accidents.

4. Be certain dogs/cats are microchipped and wear ID tags. Be sure both have current address/telephone number information. All cats and dogs adopted from The SF/SPCA's adoption center come already microchipped. If your animal is not "chipped", schedule an appointment today.

5. Learn about pet-friendly gardening options. Plant fertilizer, pesticides, and even certain types of house plants can be harmful, even fatal (!), to pets. Be sure to keep citronella candles, oil products and insect coils out of pets' reach.

6. Consult with your veterinarian regarding flea & tick prevention options. Warmer temperatures and dry conditions are perfect for the lifespan of parasites. Heartworm, a very serious and possibly fatal disease, is transmitted by the mosquito. If not on year-round preventative medication, be sure to have dogs AND cats tested.

7. Keep animals away from foxtails (not the animal, but the vegetation). These bushy, sticky grasses can become embedded in a pet's coat and burrow through the skin into the animal's body causing medical problems. Avoid overgrown lawns and fields while on walks or hiking. Keep your pet's coat well groomed during summer months. Inspect your pet's fur after hiking, including ears, nose and between the toes.

8. Use veterinary prescribed sunscreen to prevent burning and skin cancer especially in white dogs, and/or dogs with a fine coat. Apply to noses and tips of ears. Include sunscreen in your Pet First Aid kit/backpack.

9. Keep dogs leashed
