    Boston
    Meet Boston, a gorgeous kitty with big, yellow eyes and the cutest little tiger stripes. Everyone at Second Chance for Strays loves all their kitties, but Boston is one of their favorites because he not only loves to play, he also loves to be held and snuggled. He is a curious little kitty with a hilarious fascination with paper towels. Boston would make a great addition to a household either with or without other kitties. Meet him at the Clearwater PetSmart on Gulf-to-Bay and U.S. 19 or call Pat at 535-9154. Boston is neutered and current on shots. Visit www.secondchanceforstrays.com.

Halloween can be great fun for trick-or-treaters but Pinellas County Animal Services reminds pet owners that family pets face some scary dangers of which their humans should be careful.

- All but the most social dogs and cats should be kept in a separate room away from the front door during peak trick-or-treat visiting hours. Too many strangers can be scary and stressful for pets.

- When opening the door for trick-or-treaters, take care that pets don’t dart outside.

- Chocolate in all forms is very dangerous for dogs and cats. Symptoms of significant chocolate ingestion may include vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, increased thirst and even seizures.

- Candies containing the alternative sweetener xylitol can be poisonous to dogs. Even small amounts of xylitol sweetener can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar, which leads to depression in dogs, lack of coordination and seizures. In cases of significantly low blood sugar, liver failure has been known to occur.

- Ingesting tin foil and cellophane candy wrappers can pose a choking hazard or cause intestinal blockage.

- Wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations can be dangerous. If chewed, pets could experience damage to their mouths from shards of glass or plastic, or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock.

LARGO - At the SPCA Tampa Bay, Gretchen Gallagher is charged with finding new ways to fund necessary improvements or changes at the aging facilities in Largo. Her idea, which has become wildly successful, was to bring women together to make it happen.

“We felt we could pool together the resources of professional women in our community, women who care about animals to get projects done,” she said.

What is a senior pet? We are all familiar with the term “senior” to describe an older pet, but the actual age when a pet is considered a senior may vary between species and breeds.

Middle-aged would equate to approximately 7 to 8 years old for most dogs and cats (except for large-breed dogs that may reach middle-age a year or two earlier).

As the pet enters its senior years, more frequent examinations and diagnostic tests are recommended so we are able to fully monitor your pet’s health and address your pet’s needs. Your family veterinarian can assess your pet and its lifestyle and describe present physical changes, as well as a management plan, so that you will be prepared for those “golden years.”
