National Pet Cancer Awareness Month
One in four dogs will develop cancer during their lifetimes. While cancer is less common in cats, it tends to be harder to detect in our feline friends. Early detection is the key to better prognoses, so routine veterinary exams and screenings are crucial. Your young and adult pets should see their veterinarians every year, and your senior pets should see their veterinarians twice each year. But if your pet’s eating, sleeping or bathroom ha...bits change suddenly, schedule an appointment as soon as you can. This month is National Pet Cancer Awareness Month, and for every photo you tag with #CurePetCancer on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, Nationwide will donate $5 to the Animal Cancer Foundation. Learn more about the initiative (http://curepetcancer.com/awareness.html) and help us join the fight to #CurePetCancer.
ASPCA's Adopt a Senior Pet Month
Older animals have a tough time finding new homes once they end up in shelters. But they make excellent pets, too! When you adopt an older pet, you know what to expect, as they will have grown into their personality already. While many older pets have already been trained, it’s also easier to train them than it is to train kittens or puppies. This month is ASPCA’s Adopt a Senior Pet Month, so we’re helping spread the word that senior pets make excellent companions.
Something to consider for your furry family members in case of an emergency or disaster
Still trying to find the perfect Halloween costume for your pet? Look no further! https://goo.gl/qmtSrt
Don't let your pet's Halloween go from spooky to downright deadly! Keep your pet safe with these five tips:
1. Keep all candies, especially chocolates and anything containing xylitol, out of your pet's reach, as they are extremely poisonous to cats and dogs.
2. Keep black cats inside for a few days around Halloween. They are more likely to be pestered this time of year....
3. Make sure pet costumes don't have small pieces your pet could swallow.
4. Keep pets away from pumpkins. Though they aren't poisonous to cats or dogs, they can cause blockages if your pet swallows big chunks.
5. Keep your pet away from the door so she doesn't try to escape when you're giving candy to trick-or-treaters.
Some surveys suggest that this disease is the #1 reason cats visit the veterinarian. https://goo.gl/421dwn
