More Happy Tails

Dobie (needs) a generous exercise area; however, her running along the fence line and along the pool screen was destroying our landscaping! Once again Invisible Fence® Brand came to our rescue. The product works and the service is phenomenal. We recommend your product to anyone desiring pet control in a gentle fashion and there is no visible obstruction with the product. Thank you for your combined efforts.

National Pet Week®

5/6/2014

National Pet Week® is dedicated to celebrating the more than 200 million pets that enrich our lives each and every day. National Pet Week® was created in 1981 by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Auxiliary to the AVMA to honor the many important roles pets have in our lives and to promote responsible pet ownership.

Whether companion, comedian, confidant or protector, our pets are always there for us and don’t ask much in return. National Pet Week® celebrates this bond and encourages pet owners to be certain they provide their best friend with all they need for a happy, healthy life every week of the year.

The AVMA lists six things you can do to be a responsible pet owner: 
  1.  
    Commit
    •  
      Avoid impulsive decisions when selecting a pet.
    •  
      Select a pet that's suited to your home and lifestyle.
    •  
      Keep only the type and number of pets for which you can provide appropriate food, water, shelter, health care and companionship.
    •  
      Commit to the relationship for the life of your pet(s).
    •  
      Provide appropriate exercise and mental stimulation.
    •  
      Properly socialize and train your pet.
  2. Invest
    • Recognize that pet ownership requires an investment of time and money.
    • Make sure your pet receives preventive health care (vaccinations, parasite control, etc.), as well as care for any illnesses or injuries.
    • Budget for potential emergencies.
  3. Obey
    • Clean up after your pet.
    • Obey all local ordinances, including licensing, leash requirements and noise control.
    • Don't allow your pet to stray or become feral.
  4. Identify
    • Make sure your pet is properly identified (i.e., tags, microchips, or tattoos) and keep its registration up-to-date.
  5. Limit
    • Don't contribute to our nation's pet overpopulation problem: limit your pet's reproduction through spay/neuter, containment or managed breeding.
  6. Prepare
    • Prepare for an emergency or disaster, including assembling an evacuation kit.
    • Make alternate arrangements if you can no longer provide care for your pet.
    • Recognize any decline in your pet's quality of life and make timely decisions in consultation with a veterinarian.
