The Beggin’ Fur News—November 2012


November is a very busy month at BFAB. I’m especially happy to make my clients look good, smell fresh, and feel great for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. I adorn my groom dogs with Thanksgiving bows or a cute turkey print bandanna. As my clients trot out my shop door, they smell of pumpkin pie cologne. “Pawrents” notice, and they love it.

As it looks right now, I do not have any openings until the first of the year. I do have a waiting list if you would like to call to get your name on the list. I am taking appointments for January 2012.

Once again, I’m concerned about safety during Thanksgiving festivities. Following are some tips to keep your dog happy, healthy, and safe:

1. When you are cooking the Thanksgiving meal, please keep your pets out of the kitchen. You don’t want to spill something hot on your dog resulting in a severe burn.

2. Do not leave carbonated beverages or cocktails unattended around your house. These drinks can be dangerous to your dog(s).

3. It is best to confine your dog(s) during the Thanksgiving meal.

4. Do not feed your dog(s) table food. Many foods on the Thanksgiving menu are toxic for your pet(s). Feeding your dog(s) from the table can inflame the stomach and can result in pancreatitis, which is life threatening.

5. Dogs should never be allowed to chew on poultry bones. Bones can lead to choking. They can also get stuck in the digestive system resulting in emergency surgery.

6. There are hazards in the Thanksgiving trash. Tie up the trash and place and secure it in the garbage can as soon as possible.

7. Do not share Thanksgiving desserts with your dog(s). Gingerbread, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, for example, are not good for canines. Chocolate is very toxic and can cause death. Signs of chocolate ingestion are hyperactivity and hyperventilation.

8. Keep your dog(s) on the same diet, food portion, and feeding schedule during the holidays. Make sure they have fresh water at all times.

9. Make sure your dog(s) get their regular walks and grooming during the holiday.

Your dog(s) should never eat the following foods: avocado, alcohol, onions, garlic, coffee, tea, soda, other caffeine, grapes, raisins, milk and other dairy products, macadamia nuts, candy, gum, chocolate, fat trimmings, bones, persimmons, peaches, plums, raw eggs, raw meat and fish, salt, sugary foods and drinks, yeast dough, baking powder, and baking soda.

One great thing about Thanksgiving, you can always walk your meal off while walking your best friend. Bug and I would like to wish you all a very blessed Thanksgiving!
