During warm weather we tend to open windows and doors. It's time to put up screens for both to keep our pets from running outdoors unattended.
Q: How do you know if your dog has worms?
If you have a small kitten, make sure to handle it a lot, gently showing it that you are someone it can trust. Put a ticking clock in where its bed is, the soothing sound mimics the mother cat's heartbeat.
If you have a puppy that pees on your carpet: After soaking up most of the mess with a paper towel, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the area and leave it to absorb both the traces of urine and the odor.
Do not make your dog walk on extremely hot or cold asphalt, cement, etc. The pads of their paws are not made out of steel. If it is too hot for you to walk barefoot, then chances are that it is too hot for your dog also.
Establish an area for the cat's litter box in a well-ventilated, quiet place. Show the kitty where it is by taking your hand and play scratching the litter to show him it's ok for him to use it.
