Fall has just fallen, hopefully not too hard. However, it is time to think about winter preparedness, especially concerning our sweet darling pets. It is our responsibility to take care of these animals, when we brought them home was the day we mentally signed that document that we would faithfully take good care of our pet. Frankly, there is more documentation for pets than to bring a human baby home. Though, in my mind it is comparable!
This week’s article is about Cold Weather Preparedness for your pet and exotic pet - including how to unfreeze an iguana; video included!
Keep in mind using safety precautions while using propane heaters and emergency generators! Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is how my 15-year old son died. Keep emergency generators outside. Make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector. Make sure there is plenty of ventilation around your propane heaters and you have a carbon monoxide detector (battery powered or electric with backup battery system – remember no electricity).

As MANY of you have discovered I do answer email even Sunday night at midnight into the wee early hours. Please don’t depend on this. I would feel real bad if something should happen to your pet if I should happen to have the opportunity to go to sleep. I am also not a veterinarian and if you do have an emergency at whatever hour please contact your veterinarian. If it is a question I can answer – yes sure, if the laptop is curled up in bed with me while I don’t sleep I would be glad to answer your questions.
I truly enjoy hearing from you (I guess you really don’t hear anything in email, shows my age doesn’t it lol) Occasionally an email will hide from me, I carefully look before I delete anything, I will eventually find that lost email the gremlins hid between 18,000 spams, 200,000 facebook posts…..All this mumble jumble means, please don’t feel guilty emailing me, I am happy to receive your emails and equally happy to answer them.
