Pets love to have the freedom to come and go. And their owners enjoy many benefits from that freedom. When you install a PetSafe pet door, you’ll have flexibility to opt out of getting up early, in the middle of the night, or during dinner to let the dog outside. Plus, allowing your dog to come and go builds confidence; unwanted behavior problems such as chewing, furniture clawing, and excessive barking often remedy themselves when pets are no longer dependent upon owners to let them in and out.

At All Pet, our durable, high quality doors, come in a wide range of styles and sizes. For this coming winter, try our Extreme Weather Door with 3 flaps to protect your home from extreme temperatures. This door delivers maximum energy efficiency, up to 3 times higher than our standard single-flap door. Check with any of our All Pet stores for more details, and give you and your pet some freedom! Also, don’t forget to look for an exclusive 10% OFF Extreme Weather Door coupon in this issue of the All PET Gazette.

  • Secure your tree and keep pets out of the water at the base (it may contain fertilizers, or it may be stagnant!)
  • Keep tinsel away from your pets as it can cause a severe digestive tract obstruction.
  • Keep all ribbons and gift ornaments away from your pet. These are extreme choking hazards!
  • Keep pets from chocolate and anything sweetened with Xylitol.  Also, keep pets away from any unattended plates.
  • Forget Mistletoe and Holly as they can really upset pets’ stomachs! However, don’t worry as much about poinsettias; according to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, they are not poisonous to pets, although they might also cause upset stomachs.
  • Make sure wires to Christmas lights are out of the way as well, and avoid burning candles -JG

Q: What can I do to avoid my dog from getting flaky, dry and itchy skin when the weather starts getting cooler?

A: Fall and especially winter’s colder, drier weather, coupled with the low humidity of forced-air heated homes, can affect a pet’s skin and coat as much as it affects its owners’ skin. Dry, flaky and itchy winter time skin can be avoided by remembering and following a couple of simple steps.

First, don’t bathe your pet more than once a month; most can be successfully kept clean with daily brushing to remove dead hair and dander. Daily brushing also stimulates skin circulation and distributes its natural moisturizing oils. When bathing is necessary, use a gentle cleansing and moisturizing shampoo and conditioner formulated especially for the pet you are bathing.

Second, remember that the skin is moisturized from the inside out. Under normal conditions, your pet’s premium food should be supporting skin and coat health with high quality ingredients including balanced essential fatty acids. However, during the winter months it may be necessary to supplement your pet’s diet with Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, available in an oil, powder or pill form (All PET recommends NaturVet’s Ultimate Skin & Coat Supplement).

Finally, dry flaky skin can be a sign of a larger problem within your pet. If you notice excessive hair loss with sores or rashes on your pet’s skin please seek veterinary medical attention for your pet. Most general cases of cool-season dry skin can be turned around within a few short weeks, allowing you and your pet to enjoy the rest of the season.
