You have just 8 days to Act!

We have agreed pets make our lives so much better. Because your awareness about their care has advanced do you have the “the information and skills” to keep pace with their needs.

Case in point: would you know what to do when your pet needs you most?

Younger dogs are curious, active and quick, all the while doing some pretty silly things like swallowing a pair of your knee high stockings; would you know what to do? Or the car is leaking anti-freeze and your dog runs in the garage and rapidly laps up the spill. Now what?
What about emergency pet care, are you prepared? Allow me to share an experience I recently had as a 9-year professional pet sitter. I share this experience as it could have just as easily happened on your watch as a pet parent.

“The loud jarring screech from young dog Lucky was like he was being struck or attacked by another dog or a wild animal. I was just leaving that afternoon from a regular pet care visit. His squeal caused me to quickly re-enter the house. Looking out the back door, I saw him dangling from the fence-gate, upside down, his back left leg wedged tightly in the fence.

I instinctively knew, because of my first aid training, that any pet that is in pain or going to be moved into pain can and will bite. I hurriedly grabbed a leather lead from the tabletop; I used it as a temporary muzzle. I proceeded to free his leg from the fence. I was still bitten, ever so lightly.

At first he was hobbling, after a few minutes he put full weight on his leg. I was reassured when he reached over and licked my hand and arm; as if to say, hey that was a close call, you saved my life.

I did a snout to tail assessment to make sure that he had no tender spots or that he responded anywhere with discomfort. All seemed well.

When the vet checked him a few hours later he said there was no permanent damage due to his young age and mainly the quick reaction of getting him freed from the fence.”

Do you have a Starter First Aid Kit for your pet along with a muzzle for YOUR safety?

What about your Senior Pet-izen™, eelder pets require a different level of care; do you know those signs & symptoms and risk factors?

What about on-going dental care for your pets, things you can do regularly to avoid expensive dental surgeries and tooth loss. Just like us, if the mouth is filthy, and not cleaned up regularly gum disease and tooth loss occur. Periodontal disease causes more problems than tooth pain. Four-leggeds with unchecked gum infection may be at a higher threat for heart, kidney, and liver disease.

So, your best friend relies on you to do the very best for them. We invite you to look at your life and learn where you can do better for them. Our adage has always been, “When only the best will do.”

Pets improve our quality of life. It is our belief that as we surely advance our own lives that equal or better care be given our pets. Superior wellbeing and prevention matters; the components of quality nutrition, a strong immune system and exercise are basic.

As your awareness grows are you building a higher standard of care for your four-leggeds? For us, at a New Way to Life Pet Sitting and Pet Services, that translates into pet education for pet parents. We invite you to explore our website and sign up for the programs offered.

I am Lisa Faust, Cedar Dog’s other Mom. I am a Master Instructor and I teach an incredible Pet First Aid Education Class that is both fun and valuable. I promise you will love it.

At the end of the day your pet greets you with unconditional love, forgiveness and loyalty. For starters, are you ready to pay it forward and learn to do “a snout to tail assessment” on your pet weekly?
