Along with July comes lots of pool time, play time and barbecues. The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and that means fireworks and lots of loud noise. We also know that our pets can get pretty scared as a result. Sometimes fireworks start weeks earlier than Independence Day
and go on for weeks after. Please keep your pets' safety in mind when it comes to the loud noises as well as keeping them safe during pool time. We also have some important grooming tips for your dog's summertime hair. All the information is right here in this month's Pet Tips and Treats newsletter, which is filled with valuable information. Remember to watch for our periodic special discount "treat" just for you and your pet to enjoy. Don't forget to share the love and send our newsletter to others who also cherish their pets.

Celebrate the Fourth Of July And Keep Your Pets Safe

The Fourth of July brings many things, from picnics and barbecues to swimming and fireworks. What's often fun for humans can be a nightmare for animals. From dangerous foods and excessive heat to loud fireworks that can frighten dogs, cats and other animals, it's important to have safety measures in place when it comes to our pets.

How to Keep Your Pets Safe Around The Pool

It's a common misconception that all dogs know how to swim. Nor do they all love the water. Forget about cats. Surely, there are some out there who like to take a dip, but for the most part, probably not. Even if you can't get your pets to enjoy the water, it's a good idea to ensure they know how to swim and get in and out of a pool.

Long-Haired Dogs: To Shave or Not to Shave?

We see it all the time. People with long-haired dogs who shed think it's a good idea to have their dogs shaved, especially during the hot summer months. Many think it keeps their dogs cool and stops the hair from accumulating in their homes.
