PET OF THE WEEK
MCFA pet of the Week
Meet Laney - our lovely Dog of the Week. Laney is a 14 month old black/tan/white mixed breed lady with a charming smile and a happy personality. She is full grown at 57 pounds. Laney is friendly and curious and eager to meet anyone who comes near her kennel. She loves to walk on a leash, sit on your lap or just be the center of your attention. Laney appears to get along with other dogs and would love to be part of a family with children (older than toddlers due to her size). She was heartworm positive but has been treated for this infection and is recovering well. Please come meet her to see if she can be part of your family.
The 4th of July is just around the corner, and while we humans enjoy fireworks, they can be a cause of the anxiety for animals. Here are some suggestions to help your dog through the holiday.
Make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise earlier in the day. Keep your dog inside during fireworks, preferably with human companionship. If it’s hot, air conditioning will help. Bringing your dog to a fireworks display is never a good idea. Provide a safe place inside for your dog to retreat. When scared of sounds they can’t orient, dogs often prefer small enclosed areas. (I once had a dog who climbed in the bathtub during windstorms.) If your dog is comfortable in a crate, that is a good option. If possible, keep the windows and curtains closed. Covering the crate or lowering the blinds can also be helpful. Removing visual stimulation can also help calm dogs. Make sure all your dogs are wearing ID tags with a properly fitting collar. Dogs have been known to become Houdini around the 4th of July. Leave your dog something fun to do – like a frozen Kong filled with his favorite treats.
