Bosse Tools is constantly thinking about safety. Today we are taking a look at safety tips for our pets!  The first three tips include:  How to keep pets safe at a party!  The second three tips include:  How to keep pets safe during cold winter months.  

Pets are the life of the party so make sure to keep them safe by using these three strategies:

1.  Be cocktail cautious for your pet
Be cautious where drinks are set if alcoholic beverages are being served.  Watch out for sweet beverages which mask the flavor.  Signs of distress include problems walking or standing up, lack of coordination, drowsiness, a slow breathing rate, excessive urination, vomiting, or unresponsiveness.
2.  Create guest pet rules
Guests love to feed the cuties so create treat bowls with directions.  This avoids human food feeding and can help calm nerves.  Also, add a petting session for the more extreme pets such as lizards or other exotics. 
3.  A room alone for your pet to rest
When all the noise gets to be too much, make sure your pet has a quiet room with water and food.

Brrrr.  Has your pet changed since the snow hit the ground?  Well, here's three tips to keep your pets safe.

 

1. Encourage pet activity
Animals have the tendency to become sedentary when cool weather rolls around. Take your pet out for walks around the neighborhood or bring your pet to your local dog park. You can also buy him treat-dispensing toys that encourage him to kick and knock the toy about before he gets a treat.
2. Keep pet skin in good shape
The cold winds and grounds and the dry heat of your house can both irritate your pet's skin and cause it to itch and flake.  If you own a dog, make sure to apply petroleum jelly before taking him out for a walk. This can safeguard his paws from ice, salts, and other chemicals that can irritate his skin.  Don't forget to shovel snow from your driveway and pathways to keep your pooch from getting in contact with it.  Check our shovels here.  Snow Shovels.
3. Protect pet from antifreeze
Antifreeze is important for your vehicle but it can be extremely poisonous for your dog or cat. Store it properly and make sure to clean up spills on the ground.  Prevention is better than cure.
