Ten 4th of July pet Safety Tips!

July 02, 2017 Bark Gourmet Bake Shop

www.barkgourmetbakeshop.com 10. Keep your Pet Indoors at All Times! It may seem obvious, but even if your pet is used to being outside, the resulting panic caused by fireworks or other loud noises may make them break their restraint or jump a fence in a terrified attempt to find safety.  9. Don’t Put Insect Repellant on Your Pet that isn’t Specifically for Pet Use The same tip applies to applying “people” sunscreen on your pet. What isn’t toxic to humans can be toxic to animals.

Food, vaccinations, medical treatment, and boarding during vacations doesn’t come cheap. Consider the pros and cons of various pets. Resist impulse...

DOGS EASTER DANGER

April 09, 2017 Bark Gourmet Bake Shop

Chocolates is a no no!!Easter Eggs, chocolate bunnies and other chocolate novelties are the biggest danger of all.  They are tempting treats for dogs and especially when everyone has their feet up after a filling Easter lunch or when they think it is time to join in the egg hunt!   Every year we have cases of chocolate poisoning in the practice and sometimes with the added joy of large amounts of ingested coloured foil that can form a foreign body and cause even more havoc.   Chocolate contains theobromine, which is a stimulant like caffeine and toxic to dogs.  Symptoms include...

A Close Look at the National Professional Pet Sitters WeekThere is no denying that some of you have had a pet sitter ( trained or untrained ) at some point.

Benadryl for Dogs

February 17, 2017 Bark Gourmet Bake Shop

Veterinarians use Benadryl for dogs on a regular basis to treat allergies, travel anxiety, and motion sickness. While you should always consult with your veterinarian before giving your dog a human medication, here is what you need to know about using Benadryl for dogs. Benadryl is the brand name for the active ingredient diphenhydramine HCL. Diphenhydramine is a first-generation ethanolamine-derivative antihistamine, which is the scientific way of classifying antihistamines that can cross the blood-brain barrier from those that cannot.
