As the weather gets warmer and we all look for the end of the cold, wet winter and look forward to getting outdoors with our furry family. Before you open the door and let your four-legged friend run feely outdoors, check to make sure the spaces they are in are pet-friendly. It's easy to create a pet-scaped yard that is free of chemicals and safe for paws. Just follow these tips.
Pass on Pesticides - Use organic lawn care products. One study found that dogs who were exposed to chemical herbicides were 4.4 times more likely to develop bladder cancer.
No-No Cocoa - Skip cocoa mulch. Dogs can't resist its chocolatey smell and it is toxic to dogs if eaten.
Flower Power - Curious dogs and cats often are drawn to and eat fragrant, colorful flowers. Before adding a plant to your garden, check to be sure it is safe for your pets to chew or eat.
Compost Ghost - While composting is great for the planet, it's not meant to be consumed by pets. As food and garden waste breaks down, it may grow mold which could sicken your pet if it is eaten. Symptoms range from excessive drooling or panting to vomiting and seizures. Keep compost bins closed.
Play Time - With increased hours of sun and rising temperatures be sure your pet doesn't overheat. Always provide water when outside.
Extra Defense - Be sure your furry friend is protected with a top-or-the-line flea and tick control product.

- I probably started using the Fulton Animal Hospital soon after it opened. Dr. Delmastro was a caring veterinarian as was her staff. My animals were always treated well and on at least one occasion she came into the hospital on a non-work day to attend to my very sick dog. But we left the Fulton area in 2001 and I then realized what an important role Dr. Delmastro played in my pets' lives. Even though it is a 3-hour round trip to see her, I have continued taking my dogs to her on occasion because I know that she will diagnose the problem and see that my pet returns to good health quickly. And every time I have to do that it's like "returning home."
