July 4th is often the official "kick-off" of summer. Including your pet in many of your activities can be fun for everyone involved, but be sure to take precautions where necessary.
Parades, barbecues, family gatherings and fireworks are the hallmarks of our Independence Day celebrations. But, be aware that fireworks are frightening to many dogs. When dogs panic from firework noise, they often run and many dogs have been lost this way. Be sure to keep your pet on a lead or keep her/him indoors.
Just as you would keep an eye on small children, be aware of where your pet is and what s/he is doing when you are at gatherings. Whether you're in the backyard, at the beach or someplace else enjoying a lazy day of summer, don't let your pet get too close to the grill or fire pit. Avoid gastrointestinal emergencies by keeping your pet away from charcoal and discarded food items such as fish or sparerib bones, pits from fruit (including avocado), corn cobs, skewers and garbage in general.
If you and your furry buddy are out in the car and you need to stop at a store, NEVER leave your pet in the car. Even though some people don't think temperatures in the 80s feel too warm; in an enclosed, sunny space such as a vehicle, the temperature can reach over 110 degrees in just 10 minutes. This can cause heat-stress or heat stroke in a pet, which can lead to death.
If you see an animal locked in a vehicle in a parking lot, intervention may be necessary. Try to locate the owner of the car through the store or restaurant's paging system or contact the police to free the animal.

There are a number of reasons why pets develop hot spots - those painful, itchy, red, raw sores on the skin. Hot spots may be caused by fleas, mites, ticks, insect stings, stress, boredom and infrequent bathing. They can become infected, so it's important to monitor hot spots carefully. The worse a hot spot becomes, the more irritating it gets for your pet, and it can become a vicious cycle.
The incidence of hot spots can increase during the warmer months, when your pet is often outdoors. Romping in the yard, running through the woods or on the beach, even walking through town can expose your pet to insects of all kinds, dirt, sand, environmental debris and germs. One of the best preventatives for hot spots is regular bathing. Keeping your pet's coat clean is half the battle when it comes to keeping hot spots at bay. Regular bathing also gives you or your groomer a chance to monitor the condition of your pet's skin.
Bathing your pet once a week or once every other week and brushing your pet's coat in between will help ensure that hot spots don't develop or get worse. If your pet does develop hot spots that seem to be getting progressively worse, be sure to seek medical advice from your veterinarian.
At Zoomin Groomin, we use PURE OXYGEN gentle bath products to help keep your pet's skin and coat fresh and healthy. PURE OXYGEN leaves no residue, removes build-up, is natural and odorless. Our pet parents always remark how shiny and soft their pet's coat is after a Zoomin Groomin visit!
