Constable Kimani, Ck L Colona Cross Canada, Texas discussed on Let's Talk Pets
Are so spring is beautiful, but it can be a difficult time to be a a cat or a dog. Who can't tell you? Oh, my sinuses are killing me or g these fleas or driving me crazy, and I'm stripping the for my skin. So you just have to watch them. Well, I think grooming is huge this time of year because you know, you gotta brush if they come in all covered in pollen, you're gonna suffer. They're gonna suffer. Everybody's suffering brush brush brush, if you can get a vacuum with a long arm and get your pets to tolerate that. That really helps there's other things to diet can affect things a lot, but keeping them clean and hosing them off especially dogs who've been in dirty muddy water water that's questionable just hose them off. They shouldn't sit in that or have to lick it off and for cats. It's the same kind of thing if they're naked, and they're loaded the ground. So if your neighbors spraying pesticides, keep your cat in that day. That's. It's just not something he should run through, you know, really and his feet to the feet the pads. They're so exposed all the time. I worry so much about people burning the pads are cutting the pads off their animals because you know, maybe their dogs been inside a lot lately. And it's the first dry hot day in the pavement scorching and the person's wearing running shoes doesn't notice and they take the dog out at noon, and bam now the dog's dying to go for a walk it so excited and it wants to keep up with its human. So won't even let on as it's wearing its pads completely, raw, you know. You gotta feel the ground yourself. So spring time when we gotta get ready for the weather. Right. Absolutely. And in Mike part of the country a lot of people love their dogs in the back of the pickup. And and take them wherever they're going. And you gotta remember that those pickups at least in our part of the country that nettle get scorching hot. So you don't make sure that did your dog has some kind of protection. I mean, you know, maybe. Blanket or something if you're going to do that. Well, the other thing the other thing about that is the humans inside a cab. So they're in shade often in air conditioning and the dogs outside with win. So he seems to feel good, but he is actually direct total exposure to the sun the entire time. There's no shade over him. So that's good. Right. He's getting sunstroke. He's getting heated up piece getting dehydrated. He's getting cranky. If he's a normal dog or an older dog or you know, like it's just not a good a good plan. You got to think this went out a little bit better when traveling with your pets, and in a lot of places you'll get a ticket for that. Anyway. So it's not it's not and then they pull you over. They're going to start writing other tickets if their pet lovers what's going on with that retaliate. It's going on there. Tire pressure. Oh, no. I once had a constable on the on the radio when I was on CK L Colona cross Canada network. And this guy this constable Kimani called into the show just to tell people that he's looking for them. And if he sees anybody with a dog loose in the back of a pickup even tied on a leash if they're not in a correct harness, and they're not provided for adequately. He's gonna find everything wrong. He can. And he was like warning my listeners it was like, oh, no. What? But you know, he said dogs become missiles when you put on the brakes that dogs eighty pounds becomes eight hundred pounds with the force of the motion. And it kills drivers. And passengers that was his point. That was his issue that it's just not safe. So I understand what where they're coming from. But the heat to you gotta really watch. No dogs in cars. No cats in cars. Right. Right. Well, I was getting ready to go there. Yes down here. It is about oh ninety something degrees. And at this moment. So that means five minutes in the car, it it'll be like a hundred and ten and twenty minutes, it can get up to one hundred and thirty so no animals in the car. And in Texas. I'm happy to tell you that there is a good Samaritan law, and you can break you can break a window. If you find an animal, you know, I'd advise calling fleece, but you know, it's super hot and you see the animals in distress. I do it even if they didn't have the law so well over here,.
