Halloween Safety

 

Halloween is a fun time for all the family, and with the right preparation and safety measures in place, it can be a day both you and your pets can enjoy! From candy to costumes, read our top tips and help your pet have a safe and spooktacular Halloween.

Keep the treats away

 

While tasty treats are a staple of Halloween, they should be kept well away from pets, as most Halloween candy will cause them harm. Chocolate is very toxic to both dogs and cats, and many sweets also contain artificial sweeteners such as xylitol, which is toxic if ingested. Even seemingly healthier treats, like fruit and nut mixes, can be dangerous for our four-legged pals, as certain nuts and fruits (such as raisins) can also be toxic, as well as posing a choking hazard.

 

Pumpkin and pets

 

Jack-o-lanterns can add the perfect finishing touch to your spooky decor, but candles and pets don’t mix. A wagging tail or curious kitty can easy send this flying or risk being burnt, so if you do plan to try your paw at some pumpkin carving, keep it out of reach of pets, and opt for flameless LED candles instead

 

Stay inside after dark

 

On Halloween, it’s best to walk your dog before dark if you can, as you’ll have a better chance of avoiding any fireworks, or running into children dressed up for the occasion (as costumes and scary masks may confuse or frighten dogs). Similarly, if you have a cat, you should call them in early for the night, before the festivities begin

 

Halloween decorations do and don’t

 

That fake plastic spider might seem like a fun, harmless decoration to you, but imagine it from your pet’s point of view. Cats especially may decide that ‘spider’ needs to be hunted from their home, or a young puppy might even mistake it for one of their favorite chew toys. Any small decoration can pose a choking risk, so it’s best to go without. 

Instead, why not decorate with your pets in mind — head to your local pet store and pick them up a few spooky-themed toys they can safely enjoy

 

Keep Pets Calm and Easily Identifiable

 

Halloween brings a flurry of activity with visitors arriving at the door, and too many strangers can often be scary and stressful for pets. All but the most social dogs and cats should be kept in a separate room away from the front door during peak trick-or-treating hours. While opening the door for guests, be sure that your dog or cat doesn’t dart outside. And always make sure your pet it wearing proper identification—if for any reason he or she does escape, a collar with ID tags and/or a microchip can be a lifesaver for a lost pet.


 

 

Don’t forget to keep your pet up to date on their Flea and Tick medications! Once in your home fleas will thrive in warm areas and bedding. Ticks lie in wait hidden in leaf layers and as a warm body passes by, they jump on for their next meal!

 

Tick-borne disease is a growing threat to both canine and human health. Ticks are parasites that attach themselves to animals and people, feed on blood, and transmit diseases directly into the host’s system. The disease occurs when an infected tick bites a dog or a human and transmits the disease into the victim’s body. All can have serious health consequences for dogs and many can have serious health consequences for people as well.

Lyme disease is transmitted by the deer tick or black-legged tick. Clinical signs may not appear until several months after infection. Lyme disease presents acutely as: fever, anorexia, polyarthritis, lameness, rapidly progressive renal failure, neurological symptoms, and laboratory abnormalities. Untreated it can damage the heart, nervous system, and kidneys. Chronically infected dogs may develop a life-threatening form of kidney inflammation and dysfunction, called Lyme nephropathy or Lyme nephritis

Canine anaplasmosis is transmitted by the deer tick or black-legged tick. Clinical signs can present acutely as fever, anorexia, lethargy, polyarthritis, lameness, and neurological signs. Left untreated Anaplasmosis can lead to serious health complications for your dog including respiratory failure, organ failure, bleeding problems, and in severe cases can be fatal.

Canine ehrlichiosis is transmitted by the brown dog tick and the lone star tick. Canine Ehrlichia infections may progress to the subclinical phase, lasting days, months, or years.  Clinical signs can present as fever, anorexia, lethargy, bleeding disorders, polyarthritis, lameness, neurological signs, anemia, cirrhosis of the liver, and protein in urine.

 

Tick prevention options:

Seresto Collar

This collar provides protection against fleas and ticks through contact with active ingredients. This protection lasts 8 months and can be used on dogs and cats. The active ingredients are located within the collar making it safe to touch, non-greasy and odor free protection.

Bravecto – Available for dogs and cats.
An oral tablet given every 12 weeks for protection against Fleas and Ticks. Pets must be at least 6 months of age. This product is processed systemically, and the flea or tick must bite the pet to be effective.

 

 Simparica Trio

Simparica Trio is the only product that combines sarolaner, moxidectin, and pyrantel in one simple-to-give chewable given monthly. This product is processed systemically, and the flea or tick must bite the pet to be effective.

Lyme disease vaccine

You can help stop Lyme disease before it starts. We offer an Ultra Duramune Lyme vaccine which is given annually. Reduce the likelihood of positive results with the only Lyme vaccine that provided 92.2% efficacy against natural infection in a highly endemic area in a peer review study and 100% efficacy against the disease in a laboratory setting

Basic Obedience Classes:

Level 1 Obedience Class is a 6 week course for puppies and dogs of all ages and sizes.

If you haven’t taken this class, it is a great class for new puppies and new puppy owners as well as an excellent refresher course.  Basic Obedience is the core for all other classes including agility and Canine Good Citizen as well as Therapy Dog International.

  • Learn basic obedience commands and ways to use them in practical situations, along with different techniques to discourage undesirable behaviors.
  • Students are given time at the end of each session to play and socialize.  Positive socialization is imperative to your pet’s development.
  • Puppies should be at least 12 weeks of age to attend.  All dogs need proof of current rabies vaccine.

Level 2 Intermediate Obedience Class is a 6 week course.

This is a 6 week course designed to put all your dog’s basic skills to work in practical situations, and we will often meet in different locations to do so.  This is also a prep course for your dog to take the Canine Good Citizen or Therapy Dog International test.  Your dog NEEDS TO KNOW how to sit, stay and come when called to take this course.

Call us today for details! (716) 608-6383   Space is LIMITED.  You do not have to be a client of GrandView Animal Care Center to attend!

Testimonials:

Morgan Benaquist – “I can’t say enough about Dr Lisa and her staff. After having a negative experience at another vet office, I stumbled upon Grandview and made an appointment, and now I would never dream of going anywhere else in the future. My furbaby was very sick, but Dr Lisa and her team were always more than accommodating, going above and beyond in every way. I was a frequent visitor due to his condition, and everyone developed such a great bond with him, always excited to see him when I brought him in again. On days I didn’t have an appointment, they were calling to check on him and see if there was anything we needed. Just an amazing personal connection/care that you scarcely find anymore. And although my situation ended in having to say goodbye to my furbaby, I can’t imagine going through this anywhere else. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all that you do. Our community is so much better for it.

Elizabeth Poole — “Excellent staff, beautiful clean facilities. They made my princess feel comfortable and safe. It was not easy picking a new vet after I moved, I am so glad I chose this one!”

Debbie Helmbrecht Cordone — “Such a nice atmosphere and great staff! Everyone is so friendly and caring. It’s great to have you in such a convenient location.”

Lisa Regan-Grosso — “Wonderful group of people! Animal lovers at their best!”
