Dog First Aid 101

You and your dog will both be glad you did.


I need your help.

I have a page on the website that is for my readers to tell their dog story. My hope was to have people tell their story so it might help someone else with the same problem. But lately there has not been any activity on this page. Could you please look at this page and contribute something if you can.

Thank You

Keep Your Dog Safe From Plants, Poisons, Fertilizers, and Weed Killers




Keep your Dog Safe

It may seem obvious that you cannot set out things like rodent poison, ant bait, or other deadly substances in a yard where a dog will be, but nonetheless every year dogs are killed because of their owners' failure to observe this simple rule.

Dogs may not eat the rodent poison but if they catch the rodent who has already ingested the poison and eat it they are poisoned as well.

This is a tragic shame.

You also need to be careful about such things as fertilizers and weed killers. With some products, it is recommend that you wait several days after applying these substances before letting your dog back on the lawn.

Check the warning labels on the product or go to the manufacturer's website for more information. If you have a pest control professional spray outside, or inside for that matter, ask him how long you should wait before letting your dog around the area that has been sprayed.

Many people are not aware that ingesting certain common plants can be harmful to a dog, including vegetable stalks. Why would your dog want to eat the landscaping, you ask? Because it's there.

Berries, leaves, seeds, bark, twigs, foliage or in some cases the entire plant can be toxic. If your dog should ingest these, he may become ill with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, weakness, convulsions; the end result could be the death of your pet.

Common plants such as oleander, azalea, hyacinth, mountain laurel and morning glory can all be extremely dangerous.

Here's a surprise: the tomato plant can be toxic, too; after all, it is a member of the nightshade family. Some dogs love the sweet tomato fruit; be careful he does not get a hold of the plant itself.

If the worst still happens and you suspect your dog may have gotten into something toxic or poisonous, call your vet immediately. If it is the weekend or at night, there are 24 Hour Emergency Animal Clinics in most cities you can contact. Keep the phone number handy. Here are other options:

Animal Poison Control Center of the ASPCA 888-426-4435 (888-4ANI-HELP) --24 hour veterinary diagnostic and treatment recommendations.

Animal Poison Hotline 888-232-8870 --staffed 24 hours a day by veterinarians and experts on toxicology and pharmacology

Remember, time is of the essence. Don't wait and hope your dog simply throws up whatever he ate or gets better. Call a veterinary professional for immediate help.

Have you ever thought about starting a Pet sitting business?

The pet sitting industry is growing, and driving pet sitters to be the best at what they do by being professional and offering excellent service, while building a profitable business. So when I was offered an advance copy of How to Create Excellence in Your Pet Sitting Business, by Danielle Chonody, I hoped it would be a book worth reading – one that would help pet sitters up the game a bit for themselves and the industry as a whole.
