Dental Hygiene

Bad dental hygiene can lead to Periodontal Disease. Which is entirely preventable. Without the proper treatment, (other then bad breath), can cause damage to internal organs, just like humans!   Studies in dogs have shown that periodontal disease is associated with microscopic changes in the heart, liver, and kidneys. Yuck! Check with your Veterinarian about getting your fur-baby set up for a teeth cleaning. 

Household Cleaners

Did you know dogs can smell up to 2 miles?! Be careful when using cleaning products around your fur-babies. Read the label. There are also a lot of Pet Safe & Natural Cleaners out there. If they can smell 2 miles away, imagine how strong the smells in the enclosed house must be like.  

Outdoor Awareness

Chemicals to enhance the growth of your lawn, flower & vegetable gardens can severely harm your animals. Even bug sprays! Look at the label before you buy it. Search for All Natural products or Pet Safe. If you absolutely can't find anything safe, use it at night when everyone is in the house for the rest of the night. Even consult your Veterinarian.
