Outdoor "Spring Cleaning" Geared To Your Pets
Reining Cats and Dogs Pet Sitting
Once Spring has arrived, the Summer temperatures are not far behind.  When you do your traditional
“Spring Cleaning”, please take into account the care of your pets as well.  When you think Spring/Summer,
you think warm weather, cookouts, flowers, vacations.  Your pet thinks Spring/Summer is lots of panting,
food temptations he can’t have, bugs and loneliness.  By thinking of your pets during Spring Cleaning, you
will help prepare both you and your furry companions for good times during the middle of the year.  Here is
a list of ideas you may want to get started on:

  1. When clearing your yard of winter debris, make sure you pick up all dog excrement as well.  This will
    help with the appearance of your lawn, decrease bug infestations, allow children more room to play,
    and make your dog very happy as well to not be stepping in it’s own waste.
  2. Keep your yard cleaned up and tidy so wild animals, birds and insects are discouraged from making
    your home/yard theirs.  Be particularly aware of ant nests, wasp/bee nests, mosquito populations,
    mushrooms and fungi.  All can be potentially detrimental to your pet in the right circumstances.
  3. Make sure there is no standing water anywhere on your property.  Standing water invites
    mosquitoes and other insects to set up a home.  We all know that insects carry potential live-
    threatening diseases for both humans and our beloved pets.
  4. Distribute a pet friendly bug killer on your lawn.  Make sure it is as non-toxic as possible to animals!  
    Read the label thoroughly and buy smart.  Many chemicals are fine for animals to come into contact
    with once they are absorbed into the ground with a good soaking of water and the lawn has a
    chance to dry afterwards.  We only want to get rid of the insects that damage our lawns and infest
    our pets (ie – ticks, grubs, fleas, lice, mites, spiders, etc.)  If you have any questions whatsoever
    about this topic, please consult a professional such as your veterinarian, local county agricultural
    agent or ASPCA Poison Control Center.
  5. It is very important to keep your pet on heartworm preventative and tick/flea prevention.  These are
    extraordinary months for those invasive pests.
  6. Make sure your pets are up-to-date on all shots.  More time outside means more exposure to
    wildlife, airborne diseases, etc.  Spring/Summer months are supposed to be fun for everyone.
  7. Some flowers are prettier than others and we want them in our gardens.  However, make sure you
    are not planting potentially hazardous species for your pets.  Dogs and cats like to smell and eat
    new things.  Some plants are just not dog/cat friendly.
  8. Be sure to inspect all fencing (even underground electric fencing) to make sure there are no holes,
    rotted boards or a short in the electric fence line somewhere underground that your pet can get out
    of the yard through.  
  9. Any outdoor shelters that your pet has access to should also be inspected for rot, insects, water
    damage, etc.  Repair the shelter accordingly now when the temperatures are still wonderful for
    outdoor work and your mind isn’t on Summer Vacation activities.
  10. If your pet has access to storage sheds or the garage when they are outside this Spring/Summer,
    make sure there are no chemicals your pet can get into or sharp objects like trimmers and tools that
    can hurt your pet.
  11. Inspect all hoses and spigots that will be used to give your pet water.  Plenty of fresh, clean, cool
    water is essential during the warmer months.
  12. Clean up and make sure the cat door/dog door going outside is in good working order.  Just like
    children, pets love to play outside too!
  13. DO NOT leave your pets in cars!  No matter what, if you are planning on stopping somewhere with
    your pet in the car, think about it first and leave them at home where they are safest.  Cars heat up
    very fast now that Spring and Summer are here.
  14. DO NOT feed your pets food from picnics or bar-b-ques.  It may be toxic to your pet.  Please see the
    list of foods toxic to pets from the ASPCA.
  15. Do you have a Summer Vacation planned?  Call your pet sitter now to book your trip.  Summertime
    is the busiest season for pet sitters so the earlier you book your vacation the better likelihood of
    care for your pets and your home.

This is by no means a comprehensive list, so please consult with your veterinarian, local agricultural
extension agent or the ASPCA Poison Hotline for more information.  Keep everyone safe this Spring and
Summer.  And have some fun too!
