National Pet Fire Safety Day: Free Pet Alert Window Clings

The American Kennel Club (AKC) and ADT Security Services have declared July 15th as National pet fire safety day to help save the estimated 500,000 pets affected in home fires each year. –ADT Security Services

Today is National Pet Fire Safety Day. What better way to celebrate than to head over to ADT Security Services or the National Volunteer Fire Council and request a free window cling that alerts rescuers to help save the pets in your home.

Don’t be shy about writing the number of pets that share your home on the cling. This number not only indicates to the rescuers how many pets they need to search for, but saves valuable time and potential lives when accounting for all pets.

Too Much of a Good Thing: Tennis-Ball Mouth

dogtennisball

Yep, “tennis-ball mouth” is a real condition. Ever rubbed your hand or skin against a tennis ball? That scratchy texture acts as a very effective abrasive on teeth.

Pooches who love to carry a tennis ball around in their mouth for several hours throughout the day or like to addictively mouth and chew on tennis balls are the prime candidates for developing worn and eroded teeth. The constant holding and chewing of the balls wears the teeth down, creating tennis-ball mouth.

Most dogs love tennis balls, and you don’t have to stop them from playing with them, just make sure that they aren’t carrying them around all day or using them as their main chew toy. While the name may sound funny, the potentially painful diagnosis is humorless.
