Memorial Day weekend will soon be upon us ushering in the ensuing summer months of popsicles, sunburn and bathing suits worn like second-skins, so get ready! Before the festivities begin, take time to dog proof your house and backyard to ensure your Memorial Day celebrations run smoothly for both of you and your furry guests.


Dogs and cats enjoy sunbathing and will need access to shade frequently because they can easily overheat. Be proactive and have a shady spot ready so they can escape the heat throughout the day. Have plenty of fresh water available to keep them hydrated. There is sunscreen made specifically for dogs which can be applied to their nose, ears, inside their back legs and any other sensitive areas especially on short-haired breeds. Check with your veterinarian about sunscreen.

If your pool is open for the summer, there should be a lifeguard on duty to watch youngsters and water-loving dogs. Some dogs can be excellent swimmers but can have trouble finding their way out of the pool or may wear themselves out. Investing in doggie life-jackets is a safe and excellent idea. 


Any type of alcoholic beverage is potentially poisonous to pets. Other foods you should never let your canine ingest are grapes, chocolate and onions. Since your grill will most likely be fired up, protect the food from prying wet noses and flies with mesh food tents that open up like an umbrella to fit over wide platters of food. Tell guests to keep food scrap feeding to a minimum so your dog does not get sick from too much grub and indulgent food that he or she is not accustomed to eating on a regular basis.  


The later your party runs the more likely mosquitoes will show up as extra guests you did not invite. Preventative measures such as citronella candles and bug spray can be used but must be monitored. You do not want our dog to get anywhere near these substances as they can be toxic.


If the thought of keeping an eye on your dog, let alone cooking and cleaning for a large group of guests stresses you out, or your travel plans are taking you far from home, you can schedule an appointment at Morris Animal Inn where we can help your dog (or cat) celebrate the holiday weekend in safety and style.
