Home Safety Guide for Pet Owners - Part I

To many of the 164 million American pet owners their animals are part of their family.   Pet owners make huge investments in food, toys, and much more to ensure their companions have happy and fulfilling lives. 
 
If you love your pet enough to invest in their care in so many other quarters, you shouldn't let the space they spend their days be the thing that could cause them harm. 
 
We'll talk this month about common household dangers and food safety, and continue next month with tips to pet-proof your home, and what to do to prepare for natural disasters.   
 
Common Household Dangers for Pets
The average home is filled with items that could potentially harm a pet. If you toss old razors into your bathroom trash can, your pet could get into it and end up with cuts. If you leave chocolate where a pet can reach it, you're likely heading to the vet soon.
When you make the decision to own a pet, keeping them safe becomes a part of your responsibility. You should take the time to research and understand what items you have around that could hurt them. These may include:
  • batteries
  • insecticides
  • fertilizers and plant foods
  • prescription and over-the-counter medications
  • household cleaners
  • detergents
  • antifreeze
  • rat poison and traps
  • razors
  • exposed electrical cords
  • small objects that could be a choking hazard
  • mothballs
  • tobacco
  • kerosene
  • string, dental floss, rubber bands
Some of these are everyday items you need to keep around, but you can make a point to store them somewhere where your animals can't reach. 
 
Food Safety
Animals, especially dogs, have a way of looking at their owners so sweetly during meals that it seems downright cruel not to pass a little of the food on your plate. It's a natural and kind-seeming desire that can actually cause a lot of harm. Unfortunately, animals can't properly digest all the foods that people eat.   Some foods will cause sickness and could even lead to death soon after they're ingested, and there are others that are bad for animals if consumed regularly.   Most foods can lead to upset stomachs, vomiting, and diarrhea - some of the top causes for vet visits. Learn this list and make sure you keep all of these foods out of your pet's reach to avoid a trip to the vet or worse: 
For all pets, it's best to stick with only feeding them pet food. If they get ahold of a piece of human food you drop now and then, it won't usually be an issue, but it's better for their overall health if most of what they eat is the kind of food made specifically for their species.
 
What To Do If Your Pet Ingests Something Toxic
While prevention's always the best goal, sometimes animals will get into things they shouldn't. Your first move should be to call the vet. They'll give you a clear idea of how serious the issue is. If your 60-pound dog eats a small chocolate bar, they'll probably tell you not to worry too much, but if it's a serious emergency they'll let you know what to do.
If your vet's not available or you'd rather reach a poison specialist right away, you should call the  ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.

Adoptable Dog of the Month

My name is Jenny.  I am a 6 year old Boston Terrier MIX weighing in at just 18 pounds.  I am being fostered in Colorado. I was found as a stray.

I will be up front with you that I hate being left home alone. A family that has someone not working, work split shift or have some place for me to hang out with people. I find comfort with having a dog in my home but not enough for when mom and dad leave the house
I am open to the idea of a retirement home, truck driver, someone who can take their dog to work with them, etc

I love to play outside, so hopefully my new home will have a yard to play in.
I love bones and I am beginning to learn what toys are.
I am extremely friendly, love to cuddle up with everyone and well mannered.

Fosters needed for dogs with separation anxiety 
 
MABTR currently has two dogs, Baxter in Neb and Jenny in Colo, in our program that are in need of foster parents that have someone home most of the time. 

We understand that we cannot be with our dog 24/7 however in these cases they need someone who does not work full time away from home.

Both dogs are in good health, good with other dogs, potty trained and loving, just hate being left behind

If you or someone you know may have an interest FOSTERING or ADOPTING one of these two please email luckypawpals@aol.com your name, number and city and state. Jennifer will reach out to discuss more. 
THANKS in advance

Ask Jennifer
 
Q:  Does your pet have a dry, dull, course, and/or flaky coat/skin? 
 
AMABTR has found flax seed oil or coconut oil replenish the oils the coat/skin are missing for a nice shiny, soft coat and no more flakes.
 
You will see a difference in just a week and having your dog on flax seed oil or coconut oil for 30 days will make a big difference, along with a good diet.

You can find flax seed oil with omega 3 (key is it has to be 'oil', no seed or powder) at most stores.  We purchase via the Internet at  http://www.puritan.com/.  Coconut Oil can be found pretty much anywhere but we purchase at Sam's Club in bulk.  You do not need the expensive stuff.  For flax Seed Oil make sure once you open the bottle it goes in the fridge.  Bostons get one tablespoon a day. Most will eat it right off the plate or place it over their food.

One more tip.  Wipe baby oil on your dog's coat to control the flakes until the skin has completed treatment.
Alumni Feature - Hotrod
Once upon a time, in 2005, a Boston Terrier dog was born. He was given the name "Hotrod."
 
He and his brothers and sisters got taken away from their mother very early in life, and sold to  different pet stores: all except Hotrod. No one bought Hotrod. He had to stay with the same  company who owned his mother, even though he never saw her again.
 
When he was still a puppy, Hotrod like to jump. But when he got older, he got bigger. And then  when he tried to jump, his head would hit the top of his kennel where he lived with lots of other  dogs. So he stopped trying.
 
As soon as he was old enough he went to work full-time.   He ate his food off the floor of his kennel because he didn't have a bowl. He had to go to the  bathroom in his kennel too. No one ever took him for a walk. No one petted him or held him. No one  loved him. He never even met any children. His only job was to make puppies for his owners to sell.
 
That very same year, in 2005, a boy was born. He was given the name "Cory Dell."   He got to stay with his mother. When he was a baby, people held him and kissed him and took care of him. His mommy loved him. His daddy loved him. Even all of his grandparents loved him.   Cory learned to go to the bathroom in the toilet, and to eat at the table from proper bowls and  plates. He got to have lots of adventures. He went outside to jump and run and play. He got to visit  far away places. But sometimes he got lonely.
 
For as long as he could remember Cory had wanted a dog. He had a kitten when he was small.   But that was a long long time ago. He had a sister, Danni, but she was too little to play the kind of  big boy games he wanted to play. He liked playing with his daddy, but daddy had to work and he  was gone a lot. He liked playing with his grandparents, but none of them lived at his house.   One of the things Cory did every year, was go to visit his MomMom & PopPop. He liked all the  animals where they lived. He liked petting Boots the cat. He liked feeding the trout in Mr. Jack's  pond. He liked riding the horse, feeding the chickens and sheep, and holding the baby chicks and  lambs at Kay's ranch. And he liked driving around spotting deer, antelope, coyotes, mountain  sheep, moose, and elk. He liked stopping on the way home at the big aquarium to watch the  sharks. He liked all kinds of animals.
 
One day while he was visiting, he asked his MomMom, "Please talk my mom into letting me  have a dog." (Cory Dell didn't know his MomMom had been talking to his mommy for a very long  time about getting him a dog.)  Even though Cory's mommy loved him very much, she did not love the idea of getting a dog.   She knew she would have to make sure the dog got taken care of, and that would be a lot of work.   And it would cost money for food and other things a dog would need. And she would have to clean  up the hair a dog sheds and the other messes dogs sometimes make. She was a very busy lady  with a full-time job so she didn't think she would really have time to take care of both of her children  and a dog.
 
Cory begged for a dog. He prayed for a dog. He wished upon a star for a dog.
 
When Hotrod was nine years old, someone finally came to take him away from the kennel  where he lived and worked. They gave him his very first bath. They took him to a veterinarian (an  animal doctor) for the first time in his life. He got shots (which he didn't like) and had an operation  (which he didn't like even more.) The veterinarian made sure Hotrod was okay, and then they sent  Hotrod to a foster home.
 
For five weeks Hotrod lived with his foster mom Ginny and three other Boston Terrier dogs. It  was the first time someone had loved Hotrod in his whole life. It was the first time Hotrod ever saw a  ball! He liked playing with a ball. He started to learn that it could feel good when a person touched  you gently. He started to learn that he was supposed to go outside to go to the bathroom. He  learned to wear a harness.
 
Hotrod's foster mom wanted to find a good forever home for Hotrod since she couldn't keep  him. Lots of people wrote letters saying they thought they might like to take Hotrod home with them.   Ginny wanted to be sure she picked just the right family for Hotrod.
 
MomMom was talking to Mommy. Mommy was starting to think maybe Cory really needed a  dog, but she just didn't want all that dog hair all over the house. Mommy and MomMom looked on  the internet for the kinds of dogs that don't shed. Did you know that there are dogs that don't shed?   Well they found some. Mommy thought she might like a Yorkie but MomMom said those dogs were  too much foofoo: like the kind of dogs spoiled movie stars carry around in their purses; the kind of  dogs that people steal; certainly not the kind of dogs a boy would want. How about a Boston  Terrier? Now that looks like a dog a boy could love! So ugly that they're cute. Hmmm...
 
MomMom said she would like to get Cory a dog as a present. Mommy read all about Boston  Terriers. She started to like the idea more and more.
 
One day, when Cory Dell was nine years old, MomMom told him she was coming to visit. It was  a long long drive. She said she was bringing a special package, "The best package ever!" she said.
 
When MomMom got to Cory's house, the package was in the back seat. It had "To Cory Dell" in big  letters right on the front of it. But MomMom wouldn't let Cory touch the box. And she wouldn't let   him open it until him Mom got home, which was hours and hours to wait. Cory tried to guess what  was in the box. MomMom gave him hints. She said he'd better not pull off it's arms and legs the  way he did his action figures. She told him maybe it was a hotrod like the car Pete had painted  Cory's name on in great big letters for the demolition derby one year. MomMom laughed. Cory  crossed his arms and pouted.
 
Finally Mom got home and MomMom went out to get the package for Cory.   Mommy had filled out lots and lots of paperwork. Then she had an interview over the telephone.   Then she drove a long way to meet Ginny. Ginny was trying to decide if she would let Cory's house  be Hotrod's forever home.   Mommy laid all the way down on the floor and waited for Hotrod to come to her. She talked to  Ginny and acted like she was ignoring Hotrod so that he would feel safe. After a while, Hotrod came  up to Mommy... and licked her face! Ginny said he'd never done that to anyone before! So  everyone decided that Hotrod would come home to Cory.
 
Only Cory didn't know any of this was happening. He knew his Mom didn't want a dog at their  house. MomMom and Mommy were soooo excited about this surprise! They couldn't wait to see  Cory's face.
 
MomMom put Hotrod in the (until now empty) box that said, "To Cory Dell" in big letters, and  carried the box inside. Cory opened the box. He looked in. He looked at Mom. He looked at Hotrod.   He didn't smile. He said, "A dog?" Like we were kidding. He asked with doubt in his voice, "Really?"   He couldn't believe it might be true. He just knew it was a prank. That they would take the dog back.   Or make him clean his room and get good grades and never have a smart mouth to earn the dog.   And would he risk losing the dog every time he misbehaved? Could Hotrod be taken away any  minute?   It took Cory a long time and lots of questions before he would allow himself to accept that  Hotrod was really really really his dog. To keep. His. Not his dad's. His.
 
And then he wanted to know, how could MomMom keep Hotrod in that box without food or water  or bathroom breaks all that time? MomMom laughed. And explained that the box had been empty  the whole time until Mommy got home with Hotrod. She said, "First you had a hotrod car named  after you, and now you have a dog named after a hotrod car." They thought that was a good joke.
 
"Best package ever, right?!"
 
Cory was Hotrod's first kid, the first kid Hotrod had ever seen! Cory put a leash on Hotrod to  take him for a walk. Hotrod did not understand. The door was wide open but Hotrod just sat there  inside panting, looking bored. Mommy picked him up and she and Cory took Hotrod outdoors. She  explained that Hotrod had a lot to learn. That he didn't yet understand going for walks on a leash.   That Cory and Danni would have to be very very gentle with Hotrod until Hotrod learned that this  was a safe place. She explained that since his kennel had been such a small space, Hotrod's back  legs didn't work very well and he couldn't jump the way most Boston Terriers could.
 
They went back inside and Cory Dell sat on the couch. Hotrod... jumped(!) up on the couch to  lay down next to him. No one could believe it! It wasn't a very tall couch, but it did take a little leap.   And he did it to be with Cory?? Hotrod wanted to be with Cory Dell? Cory didn't dare to move.
 
Hotrod fell asleep.   Hotrod was very hot and tired from his long trip in the car with Mommy, so that first day Hotrod  mostly slept. And then he slept some more. And he snored! And he farted. A lot. Phew! Then he  slept some more. But he seemed to like to be beside or on top of Cory. And he allowed Cory to pet  him. It felt like love. It felt good. He kept an alert eye on that sister though. She was a little too  rambunctious for Hotrod's comfort.
 
That evening the whole family went out for pizza. They put the baby safety gate up between the  kitchen and the living room so that Hotrod would be where there was only a tile floor instead of  carpet and furniture. (You know how dogs can be when they are left alone.) Later, when everyone  came home from pizza, do you know where Hotrod was? You guessed it. He was in the living room.
 
Hotrod had tried again. He had jumped high enough to get over the gate! Maybe his back legs  could still learn something. Maybe there were more things he could try...
 
That first night Hotrod slept in Mommy's bed. She was worried about him. MomMom drove back  home to her house far away.  The second night Hotrod slept in his doggie bed in the dining room.   Hotrod slept. And ate. And burped. And slept. And farted. And slept. And snored. And slept. But  each day Hotrod woke up a little more. And each day Hotrod acted more like, well, a dog!
 
Finally, he barked.
 
It was Cory's job to take care of Hotrod. After only a day and a half of walking Hotrod and  feeding Hotrod, and cleaning up after Hotrod, Cory Dell told MomMom, "I didn't know it was so  much work to take care of a dog. Maybe it's too hard for a nine year old." MomMom said, "I wouldn't  have let you take care of a dog when you were six and taught you how. You're plenty old enough.   And anyway he's worth it isn't he?" Of course Cory Dell agreed.
 
Hotrod started sleeping in bed with Cory. And barking in excitement when he saw the family  coming. He barked in the middle of the night when he got out of bed, so that Cory would pick him  up and put him back on the bed. (Even though now he didn't hit his head anymore, jumping was still  hard work.)
 
A week after Hotrod moved in with Cory's family he decided to go on an adventure. After all, he  was nine years old, and had never yet had an adventure. Cory was at vacation bible school Mom  and Dad and Danni and Hotrod were home. Only,... when they looked around, Hotrod, wasn't.
 
Where could he be? Who left the door open? He'd never even tried to go out the door before! Ever.
 
Daddy and Danni got in the car and drove around and around the block looking for Hotrod.   Mommy was walking and calling for him. She had his leash in case she found him. But her phone  battery was almost dead. What if someone found Hotrod and tried to call but couldn't reach her?
 
And the new tags with her phone number on them hadn't even come in the mail yet. Hotrod still had o n the tags from the people who had rescued him from the kennel. She was very very worried. She  was almost ready to cry. She was praying that Hotrod was okay and that he would be found.
 
Hotrod was, as I said, on an adventure. Even though Hotrod and Cory were both nine years old,  Hotrod had never ever ever been on his own alone in the world. He had barely learned what "grass"  meant. He knew nothing about trees or cats or... cars. He crossed the empty lot and checked out  the nice neighbor's pretty garden. He walked sniffing around the block. Where was that other  neighbor's annoying dog? He turned the corner and went down another block, oblivious to much  around him. He still hadn't learned to move when something was coming toward him: a rolling ball,  people moving furniture, a truck.
 
Mommy was still walking and calling for Hotrod. It was time to pick Cory up from vacation bible  school and she was holding an empty leash. Mommy was still looking, and praying, and crying. She  didn't want to break Cory Dell's heart. She didn't want to tell him Hotrod was missing. She could see  the church from here. She begged God for a miracle.
 
A lady, who had come to pick up her daughter from vacation bible school was just walking out  the door of the church. She was carrying a dog. Nah. Couldn't be. But there was a red collar. And it  had black spots on it. Hotrod! Mommy could hardly believe it! She ran toward the church as the lady  walked to and got in her car to leave. Mommy banged on the lady's car window (she probably  scared the little girl half to death) and yelled, "You've got Hotrod!"
 
Hotrod had been in the middle of the main intersection in town, where the stop lights are. He  was watching the cars and trucks go by and wandering around completely unaware of the danger  he was in. Some people (and dogs) go on adventures before they are properly prepared. The nice  lady had seen Hotrod and knew that this was a very bad thing. She pulled her car over and stopped  and got out and convinced Hotrod to come to her. She put him in her car and tried to find his owner,  but then it was time to pick up her daughter from vacation bible school. While she was at church,  she read Hotrod's tag from the rescue group and called their number. No one answered. She left a  message. And now here was Mommy knocking on the window of her car!
 
Mommy thanked God and the kind lady for saving Hotrod and for keeping him safe. She was so  very relieved that Hotrod had been returned before Cory knew he was missing. And that Hotrod  hadn't been hurt. And that this lady had taken the time and inconvenience to stop. And that the lady  had been able to coax Hotrod into her car. And that her daughter had gone to the same vacation  bible school that Cory had gone to. And that Mommy had gotten there before the lady had left.
 
Mommy was quite sure that God had answered her prayers (and MomMom's) in a very miraculous  way. And I bet the whole family will be a lot more careful about shutting the doors!
 
The next day when Cory Dell was talking on the phone to MomMom, he said, "Best dog ever!"  And Mommy, who everyone thought would never love a dog, calls Hotrod "our little man." All this happened in the first week that Hotrod lived at Cory's house. Now that Cory has his dog  and Hotrod has his boy (and his forever home,) will Hotrod's new dog tags ever show up in the  mail? What new things will Hotrod try? What will these two nine year olds learn from each other?
 
What adventures will be next?
