When it comes to summer pet safety tips, the barbecue is unlikely the first thing you think about. However, there are a few risks that could imperil your pet if ignored. Grilling is definitely an awesome way to bring together friends and family to enjoy a bit of fresh air and fun in the sun, and with a few of our pet safety tips in mind, there’s no reason your favorite four-legged shouldn’t also be included in the festivities!
Pet ownership is one of the most fun, rewarding experiences in life. That is, until that fateful day you call out for your friend and only hear silence in return. Trying to find a pet who’s lost is a nightmare, but it happens to one-third of all pets (and that’s a lot of animals). If all of these pets were returned to their owners, it wouldn’t be so scary, but that is not often the case.
This is precisely why we recommend microchipping your pet.
Getting away from it all can be good for the body and the soul. But what happens to Fluffy or Fido when adventure lust comes calling? Sure, you could bring them with you and they could make the trip more fun, but extra travel arrangements can be time-consuming and expensive.
Instead of bringing your sweet pet along, you may want to consider the benefits of pet boarding – and how it can help both you and your pet enjoy the time away from home.
