Preparing for the Annual Fireworks Scare


Fireworks

 

 

It’s almost Independence Day, which means it’s officially Fireworks Season!  This is a really scary times for dogs though so read up on how to manage their anxieties and keep them calm while the celebrations are happening outside.

 

A few important things to keep in mind:

  • When dogs are scared, they are more likely to run away. Make sure your pet has proper and up-to-date identification or tracking information just in case he or she panics and runs from home.
  • Keep windows or curtains closed to minimize noise and loud flashes.
  • Create a comfortable and soothing spot for your dog, whether that be a warm blanket on the floor, his or her regular pen or right by your side!

Dogs Can Sunburn, Too.


Don’t forget that under all of that fur, dogs have sensitive skin that can burn when in direct sunlight, especially in the warm summer months. Dog noses, ears and mouths are especially vulnerable.  To keep your dog safe while spending time outside, check out this article from Dogster for sun safety tips.  This piece from Best Bully Sticks also has great suggestions for treating pups with sunburn including using aloe and vitamin E.  Stay safe, furry friends!

New Treat from Best Buddy Biscuits: Momma’s Little Monkey


Last month, Best Buddy Biscuits launched a new dog treat, which we named “Momma’s Little Monkey.”  This is a gluten-free oatmeal and banana biscuit.  It is suitable for dogs of all sizes, and geared specifically toward pets with gluten allergies.  The main ingredients include Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose flour, gluten-free oatmeal, fresh bananas, eggs, milk, agave, honey and cinnamon.  We got “two paws up” from our Wooster Street furry friends.  Come and pick up a bag for your own little monkey today!
