Our Tip of the Day:
How about a bit of a collar tip today? When putting a collar on a young puppy or kitten, please do not forget to frequently check its fit. Young furbabies grow fast, and if their collar is not adjusted accordingly, it can become not only uncomfortable for them but also dangerous. This also goes for grown animals who gain weight. A collar that is too tight can cause issues such as hair loss or skin irritation around the neck, and also of course loss of circulation or the risk of choking. Of course, also consider if your furbaby has lost weight, as this will also warrant a collar check to ensure that it has not become too loose. A collar that is too loose is not only a risk for escape, but also for allowing your furbaby to get a foot or other object stuck between the collar and their body, which poses additional dangers altogether. Collars can be very beneficial, such as by keeping our pups or kitties close to us, and of course being a perfect place for their identification and contact information. For these reasons, as well as your furbaby's safety, please always keep an eye on the fit of that collar of theirs!
