How to Avoid Accidental Poisoning of Pets http://thisislaramie.com/how-to-avoid-accidental-poisoning-of-pets/ http://thisislaramie.com/how-to-avoid-accidental-poisoning-of-pets/#respond Tue, 23 Mar 2021 21:42:04 +0000 http://thisislaramie.com/?p=3394 A message from the Laramie Animal Shelter:

“National Poison Prevention week is March 21-27.  While the week stands as an opportunity to inform folks of the hazards of poisoning for humans, we’d like to participate by outlining some tips to avoid accidental poisonings for pets.

Pets are subject to accidental poisonings in the home, the garage, the yard and out in the larger environment.  Owners can learn more about avoiding pet poisonings by visiting: https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control

There you’ll find good information about human foods to avoid.  Things like alcohol, avocado, chocolate, coffee, caffeine, grapes and raisins, certain nuts, onions, garlic, chives, xylitol, and yeast dough.  You will also find information about household products and human medications to avoid.  These will be things like bleach, ibuprofen and naproxen, mosquito repellants, tobacco products and nicotine patches.  You’ll find a list of plants to avoid.  This list includes indoor as well as landscape plants.  It’s also important to not forget items like car care products and lawn and garden care products as well as any pesticides you might have around.

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Phone Number is 1-(888)-426-4435.

This number is one of those that pet parents would do well to have posted on the refrigerator.  The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  For a nominal fee you can consult with animal poison center experts that can help you know how to respond if your pet has ingested a dangerous substance.  Have your credit card ready but this service is a life saver for your pet.

Take some time this week to pet proof your home.  We often become lax about the items we leave within easy reach.  Consider your home from the eyes of a child, or a pet, and go through it to remove the chances of accidental poisoning today.”

Securing a City of Laramie License for your Pet http://thisislaramie.com/securing-a-city-of-laramie-license-for-your-pet/ http://thisislaramie.com/securing-a-city-of-laramie-license-for-your-pet/#respond Wed, 03 Mar 2021 18:04:42 +0000 http://thisislaramie.com/?p=3277 A message from the Laramie Animal Shelter:

“Dogs, cats and ferrets being kept in the City of Laramie are required to have a City of Laramie pet license.  These licenses serve as proof of ownership, proof of current rabies vaccinations and great identification.  If your pet gets loose, this license is your pet’s quickest ticket home. 

City of Laramie pet licenses are available at the Laramie Animal Shelter and at any local veterinary hospital.  At the shelter, the license fee for an intact animal is $25 and the fee for an animal that has been spayed or neutered is $15.  Veterinary hospitals may charge an adjusted fee.  Due to COVID 19 restrictions, licenses are not currently available at City Hall.  At the shelter we are able to issue licenses if folks call ahead and set a pickup time.  We work to get all the paperwork done in advance to limit time folks are required to spend in the shelter facility. 

To get a license, call the shelter at 721-5385 extension 0 and we’ll confirm current vaccination information and get any updates to contact information over the phone.  We’ll prepare the license and at your appointment time all you’ll need to do is submit payment and pick up your tag.  We’ll need to be able to confirm current rabies vaccinations.  We do list the date of vaccine administration and the date of expiration right on the license.  We’re happy to collect that information from your veterinarian over the phone. 

In Laramie, it’s also a good idea to register your pet’s microchip with the shelter in conjunction with their license.  This helps in a couple of ways.  It’s a great form of positive identification if the tag is lost from the collar somewhere along the way.  It’s also a way to avoid any penalty for failure to display a city of Laramie pet license while your pet is out for walks and exercise (or the accidental escape).

Before the summer days are upon us, it’s a good idea to check that your pet has a current tag on their collar.  As doors and windows are open more in the summer, the number of loose animals does rise.  It’s always a goal of our department to get pets back to their rightful owners as quickly as possible.  A current license is the fastest way for us to help you reunite with your furry family member.”
