Memorial day with pets

While Memorial Day certainly has a serious meaning, it's also a chance to fire up the barbecue and light up fireworks. Here are some things to think about when it comes to throwing a party and having pets.

Fireworks cause panic and anxiety in many pets. Many dogs panic, and can display an amazing talent at getting out of yards that hold them just fine on non-holidays. It's a good idea to keep your pet indoors.

During daytime, it is important to know that people-friendly sunscreen and insect repellants aren't necessarily good for dogs. If you feel the need to apply sunscreen and/or insect repellant, find a kind that is made for pets. Human sunscreen can cause vomiting, excessive thirst, lethargy, and other bad things. Many human insecticides contain DEET, which can cause neurological problems in pets.

Speaking of insect repellants, Citronella-based insect repellants such as oils and candles can be dangerous to pets just by inhaling. The citronella can cause pneumonia and other illnesses.

Many humans like to share a beer with their dog. Don't. Alcohol is dangerous to pets, much more so than it is to humans. Even a small amount of alcohol can cause a dog to go in a coma or even die. Furthermore, their liver and kidneys aren't equipped to handle alcohol.

When it comes to the grill, most people know not to give their dogs excessive table scraps. Did you know that some matches can be dangerous to dogs? They are also tempting, because they're made of wood. Certain types of matches contain chlorates that can cause kidney disease and damage to blood cells.

And, needless to say, don't leave your pet in the car.

Are you celebrating? Will your pets participate?
