4 Factors to Remember to Keep Pets Safe in the Triangle Summer

As temperatures hit the 90-degree mark and beyond, we are loving summer in the Triangle! At Paws in the City, our team of professionals are concerned about the health and well-being of all the wonderful pets in the Cary area in the hot summer months and throughout the year.

There are many fun outdoor activities for the family to do in the Triangle, including visiting the numerous parks and lakes around the region that are pet-friendly.

Paws in the City wants everyone to keep these four factors in mind for pet safety and summer fun:

  • Pet paws get hot on pavement and asphalt: Take the test – if a surface is too hot for a human to walk barefoot, it’s too hot for a dog or cat to walk on.
  • Pets can easily overheat: Know the signs. This is a good warning for humans, too. Heat stroke in pets is very similar. They can become disoriented, have difficulty breathing, or go into a stupor-like state. Keep pets and humans hydrated and cool!
  • All pets cannot swim: When taking pets around lakes, rivers, or even the neighborhood, lead them gradually into the water to be sure they are comfortable with it. Dogs may enjoy being out on the family boat, but they need to wear a life jacket like everyone else!
  • A pet’s hair actually protects it. Keep their fur trimmed and brushed, but do not shave the pet. While humans might like to get very short haircuts in the summer heat, pets actually need a layer of fur to protect them from sunburn.

Remember, good nutrition is important for keeping the family pet healthy this summer and throughout the year. At Paws in the City, we offer a full line of natural and holistic foods and treats, so Triangle pets can continue to be safe and healthy while enjoying the fun and sun of the Triangle summer. Stop by our store, conveniently located in Tryon Village, and check out our full line of products, including supplements and other items.

3 Critical Tips for Keeping Triangle Pets Cool This Summer

Summer has arrived, although the date says it is still early! And it is heating up in the Triangle. Pets and their parents are enjoying being outdoors, walking the trails, playing in the park, and traveling to the picturesque mountains and the beautiful Carolina coast. In the Triangle, we tend to have some hot, humid weather and that means we need to find ways to keep ourselves and our pets cool and comfortable.

Whether hosting a weekend barbecue or going for a walk on a bright summer morning, keep these three critical tips in mind for cool, healthy pets this summer:

  • Stay hydrated: This is an important tip for pets and their humans. Summer sun and heat can dehydrate everyone quickly. Our Carolina humidity can make the air thick and sap our energy. For the family pet, make sure there is always refreshing water available. Throw a few ice cubes in to keep the water cold while pets are enjoying outdoor activities.
  • Never leave pets in a locked car: Even with the windows “cracked,” the inside temperature of a parked car can rise significantly – and dangerously – in a very short time. The Humane Society reports that “on an 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside a car with the windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes.”
  • Maintain good nutrition: Summer time seems to be junk food time. Family picnics are filled with hot dogs, chips, and ice cream. For pets (and their humans!) good nutrition is important during the summer months, to maintain healthy bodies. At Paws in the City, we carry a complete line of natural, holistic foods and supplements that will help keep pets healthy throughout the hot Triangle summer.

At Paws in the City, we want to everyone to enjoy the fun and sun of the Triangle summer. We also want everyone to stay healthy and safe! Stop by our store

Please check out our full line of natural and holistic foods and treats designed to keep the family pet healthy and happy all year long. We are conveniently located in Tryon Village near Harris-Teeter.

4 Important Considerations When Adopting a Rescue Pet in the Triangle

As Cary and much of the Triangle knows, Paws in the City places great importance on local pet adoption rescue, and shelter animals.  When considering a new pet for the family, think about whether a rescue pet would be a good fit. The need is great. According to Best Friend Pet Adoption, there are “more cats and dogs in need in the Triangle area than all the rescue groups and animal shelters can admit to their programs.” When searching for a new dog or cat in the greater Raleigh area, check out local rescue groups.

Keep in mind these four considerations when adopting a rescue pet:

  • Many rescue organizations do not have kennel locations: A rescue organization may not have a physical location. They generally work with foster families who will keep the pets until the organization finds a permanent home for them. The rescue organization may screen applicants first and then arrange for a meeting so the pet and new family can get to know each other, before allowing the adoption.
  • Older dogs need rescuing too: Puppies are adorable, but many rescue dogs are actually older and in need of adoption as well. Older dogs are generally settled in their ways, so they may actually be better suited for families looking for a calmer pet.
  • Rescue pets have often been mistreated or neglected: Keep in mind that a dog or cat being cared for by a rescue organization is not going to be perfect. They may have been abandoned or neglected by their previous owners. They will certainly be happy to have a healthy, loving home!
  • A rescue dog or cat can be a loving family addition: A rescue pet that is nurtured and treated well will become a loyal member of the family. Dogs and cats who have been rescued are eager to find a loving family to take care of them – and that they can love in return!

At Paws in the City, we are focused on the health of all cats and dogs in the Triangle area. We encourage our customers to help local rescue groups by volunteering, fostering, and adopting. Keep those new pets happy and healthy with our full line of natural and holistic foods and treats available in our store, conveniently located in Tryon Village near Harris-Teeter.

3 Triangle NC Tips for Enjoying Pet Friendly Road Trips

Spring and summer are great times for Triangle families to be on the move! Whether heading out on a short trip to the coast, or making plans for an extended visit to see relatives and friends in other states, Cary-area families hit the roads when the weather brings warmth and sunshine. Packing the car and then finding ways for everyone to enjoy the trip can be a challenge. When the family cat or dog are included, there are even more things to consider when planning a road trip of any length.  

At Paws in the City, we want the entire family to enjoy a restful vacation or a visit to see friends and relatives. We know that everyone can enjoy the journey with the proper planning.

Our Paws in the City experts offer three helpful tips for taking the fur kid on the family trip:

  • Pet-friendly hotels: Pets are welcome at many of the larger hotel chains, as well as at some smaller independent motels. Ask when making the reservations. The hotel may charge an additional fee for the family pet, so be prepared. It will be heart-breaking to find out that great hotel the family plans to stay in for the week does not welcome the family pet.
  • Frequent stops: Kids and pets need more stops on a long road trip than their parents. The family pet will need to get out of the car and walk around a bit as much as possible. That’s not a bad idea for the human family members either! Of course, the pets (and kids) will need to use those stops for restroom purposes too!
  • Pet safety: Keep pets safe in the car with a well-ventilated pet carrier. Make sure the carrier is large enough so the pet can move around comfortably. The carrier should be secured in a seat so it will not be thrown around the vehicle in case of a sudden stop.

At Paws in the City, we believe in the importance of family, pets included. Take some time to enjoy the family trip and take the pet along!

First, stop by our store to stock up on the natural and holistic foods and treats that will make the family pet even happier.  Check out the wide selection at our store, conveniently located in Tryon Village near Harris-Teeter. Then enjoy the ride!

4 Great Warm Weather Activities to Keep Pets Happy and Healthy

Ah, spring is coming soon in the Triangle! Flowers are blooming.  The sun is shining, and everyone wants to get outside and enjoy the spring weather in Cary and the surrounding areas. It is important to note that pets love being outdoors, as do humans.  At Paws in the City, we encourage pets and their owners to enjoy the warmer temperatures and the upcoming Easter holiday!

The professionals at Paws in the City recommend four great spring activities to help keep pets happy and healthy all year round:

  • Take a long walk: Pets love to explore new territory. Spring offers the perfect weather for a long walk for pets and their humans. Take some time after dinner or before breakfast and find a marked trail through the woods, a walking path through a park, or just stroll around the neighborhood.
  • Keep everyone hydrated: Temperatures in the Triangle can actually become relatively warm in the spring. Even though it is not quite “hot” yet, water is still essential for everyone when going outside and exercising. Pets and humans alike should have fresh water to enjoy as a cooling drink and to stay hydrated.
  • Eat healthy: The Easter season is filled with chocolate bunnies and sweet treats. Chocolate, in particular, can actually be toxic for a dog. Too much sugar is not healthy for pets or their humans. Check out our extensive selection of healthy treats and take a few along when going for that long walk.
  • Play: Break out the toys that have been stored all winter and get outside and play! Throw a ball, toss some rings, or enjoy the Carolina favorite game of corn hole. Pets love to chase after balls and other chewable items. Most of the time, they even bring their toys back to their humans so they can throw them out again for another chase!

At Paws in the City, we encourage everyone to get outside and enjoy the fresh spring air. Stay healthy and happy and keep those pets happy and healthy by being active, eating healthy, and staying hydrated.

Take a few minutes to stop by our store and check out our natural and holistic foods and treats! We are conveniently located in Tryon Village near Harris-Teeter.

3 Excellent Reasons to Groom the Family Cat for the Triangle Spring

Spring is on its way! In Cary and across the Triangle, the temperatures are rising, the flowers and trees are blooming, and our sweet pets are enjoying an abundance of fresh air and sunshine.  At Paws in the City, we recommend taking the time to be sure pets are ready for the change in seasons. While we think of cats as self-groomers, and for the most part they are indeed, they also need some human assistance to get ready for spring.

Paws in the City offers three excellent reasons to groom the family cat to get ready for the Triangle spring:

  • Prevent fur matting and hairballs: Spring is a time for shedding. Even short-haired cats will shed, as part of their natural preparation for warmer weather. Long-haired cats, in particular, may develop matted fur and hairballs as their hair starts to loosen for the shedding season. Brushing through their fur, carefully and lovingly with the right tools, provides a little extra help and prevents problems with matting. For extra protection, try some of the skin and coat treats we have for cats and dogs at Paws in the City.
  • Check for other health issues: Grooming not only makes the family cat look and feel better, it can also help in looking for and preventing health issues. Fur brushing is the perfect time to check for lumps, bumps, and injuries that may lie under the cat’s hair. These potential health issues are not always visible without parting the fur and often are only found by physically touching the cat’s skin under the fur.
  • Form a tighter bond with the cat: The family cat loves to be pampered! Even though cats like to groom themselves, they will love their human parents even more as they are brushed and held gently and with affection. They may even get a healthy treat for behaving well, making them even more appreciative!

Grooming a cat may seem contradictory to the pet’s very nature, but it is a great way to help the family cat feel better and get ready for a warm spring in the Triangle. At Paws in the City, we offer an extensive line of pet food and supplements for healthier, happier pets all year round. We are conveniently located in Tryon Village near Harris-Teeter. Stop by and see us soon!

5 Important Ways to Show Pets Good Lovin’ for Valentine’s Day!

It is almost February here in the Triangle and the second month of the year is all about love in Cary and beyond. We love our furry friends.  At Paws in the City, we believe Valentine’s Day celebrations should include our precious pets! We’re all about showing pets our love, and there are so many ways to do it, now and throughout the year. The Raleigh-Durham area offers a number of activities and resources for making the family pet feel extra special. It is also the time of year to help others with love as well.

Paws in the City offers five important ways to show our pets some love on Valentine’s Day and every day:

  • Rescue a pet: Many cats and dogs throughout the Triangle have no one to love them. These animals are found on the streets, live in shelters or foster homes, and although very caring people treat them well, they need a permanent family. Consider rescuing a pet from local organizations such as Best Friend Pet Adoption or Love Mutts Rescue. Call our staff at Paws in the City for our guidance as well.
  • Volunteer to help: Our local rescue organizations depend on volunteers to help care for these animals. It’s simple and rewarding to spend some time working with groups who need assistance with cats and dogs looking for their new family.
  • Go out on the town: Yes, the family pet likes to enjoy a night out too! Find a restaurant or community event that welcomes pets and enjoy a good time! Pints and Pups is a free dog meetup group that meets in the Triangle regularly. Local breweries welcome dogs as well, outdoors and on their patios. And we have plenty of dog friendly days here in the Triangle.
  • Train the family pet: A well-behaved pet is a happy pet and well-behaved animals make for happy owners. The Cary and Southwest Wake County areas offer a number of high-quality training organizations that work with pets (and their owners) on everything from behavior management to house training. Again, stop in or call us for advice.
  • Serve healthy food and supplements: A well-fed pet is a very happy pet who most definitely feels the love! At Paws in the City, we offer a full line of holistic and natural food and supplements that will make every animal healthier and happier!

When making Valentine’s Day plans this year, be sure to include treats and activities for the four legged kid too. Stop by our store, conveniently located in Tryon Village near the Harris-Teeter in Cary. Check out the many products we have that help all of our customers show true pet love throughout the year!

4 Healthy Resolutions for a Happy Pet New Year

During the Holiday Season across Cary and the Triangle, we begin to think about our New Year’s Resolutions and what we want to accomplish in 2017. This festive season, include the family pet in an array of resolutions for a happier, healthier new year. Pets can certainly benefit from an owners’ decision to exercise more, and there are a number of other resolutions that can be made as well that will affect the family pet more directly, making everyone happier!

At Paws in the City, our team of professionals encourages our pet owners to consider the following resolutions for the New Year:

  • Choose healthy food options: Just like humans, pets can benefit from the resolution to eat healthier. Paws in the City offers a wide range of natural and holistic foods for pets that can help to live healthier lives. Nutrition is important for pets. Make a resolution to get the family pet started on a natural, holistic diet!
  • Select­ natural supplements and treats: Adding natural supplements to those natural food options will provide even more benefits for a healthy pet. From salmon oil to dental chews, supplements and treats should be included in the New Year for happier, healthier pets!
  • Invest in training to have a well-behaved pet: Now is a great time to look into local pet training options in the Triangle. A well-trained pet is a happier pet! Local training organizations can help pets learn how to respond to voice commands and behave appropriately around strangers and family.
  • Visit a rescue organization: Local rescue organizations are a great resource for finding a new pet. Another great resolution for pet families to make is to volunteer or donate to these organizations. They can always use help taking care of their rescue pets!

Animals in the Triangle will be glad their owners made these resolutions for them. At Paws in the City, we wish everyone a happy and healthy new year. Stop in our store, conveniently located in Tryon Village in Cary, and check out our extensive line of natural and holistic foods for dogs and cats.

4 Great Holiday Gift Ideas for our Four-Legged Friends

pets-962215_1920‘Tis the traditional season for giving, and that includes everyone in the family including our best furry friends. At Paws in the City, we encourage pet families of all kinds across Cary and the Triangle to think about putting the pets on the Christmas list! Families with children, older adults, and even young singles really enjoy choosing the perfect gifts for their special friends. There are many excellent gift choices for dogs and cats that will help pets be more comfortable, live healthier, and just have more fun. When deciding on a gift choice for that special family pet, keep in mind the dog or cat’s age, size, and interests. It is much like choosing a gift for a human child!

From Paws in the City in Cary NC, our team of professionals has come up with some great holiday season gift ideas for Taffy and Fido:

  • Warm, fuzzy sweaters: Even furry family members can get chilly in the Triangle winter. Everyone needs to bundle up for outdoor walks. Choose a sweater or jacket for the family pet that fits snugly, but not too tight. Get creative with festive colors and designs for a real holiday treat!
  • Comfy beds: Give the family cat or dog a special place to call his own; buy ones that are cozy and comfy. A pet bed that’s just the right size will become the favorite spot in the house. Choose a bed with a soft covering to give the pet a warm, snuggly feeling, or even a bean bag chair for the playful cat in the family.
  • Fun toys: As cold weather sets in, pets and humans alike tend to become less active. This season, choose a playful toy or two for the dog or cat who might need a little more exercise. For the family cat, a scratching tree with dangly toys can keep it entertained and active for a long time. Dogs may enjoy a plush chew toy or a bouncy rubber ball to chase. Toys that hide special treats are especially fun and encourage the pets to be even more active, with a tasty reward at the end.
  • Healthy treats: Although it may be tempting to share sweet holiday treats with the family cat or dog, they will benefit more from fun, healthy treats made just for them. At Paws in the City, we carry natural and holistic foods for your pets that dogs and cats love!

This holiday season, take care of those special pets at gift-giving time. Remember that, just as with human children, fun gifts that are appropriate for their size and age, can also be good for them!

Stop by Paws in the City, conveniently located in Tryon Village in Cary, to find just the right food and special treats for the family pet!

We offer skin care products, supplements, holistic and natural dog food, all natural pet chews and more!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

5 Seasonal Tips to Keep Pets Healthy in the Triangle

vargazs-dog-walking-pixabayIn the Triangle, autumn brings crisper air, falling leaves, and family gatherings. We love to put on our jackets and boots and take our pets out for long walks now that the days are a little cooler. Pets enjoy being outside; temperatures are falling and the sun brings welcomed warmth instead of sweltering heat. At Paws in the City  in Cary, we encourage our pet owners to head for the fresh air. However, it is important to take steps to protect pets throughout autumn and into the upcoming holidays.

From Paws in the City, here are five steps to keep pets healthy as we head to the Holiday Season in the Triangle:

  • Leaves and twigs: Pets and children love playing in piles of fallen leaves! Be sure to check for sharp sticks and pine cones that may be mixed in with the enticing colorful leaves; look for acorns, common across Raleigh, which are toxic to dogs.
  • Mushrooms: Autumn’s damp, cool weather is perfect for mushrooms that may sprout up in the yard. Most are harmless to pets and humans, but some can be dangerous to both! Check out the ASPCA’s list of toxic and non-toxic plants to make sure those mushrooms are safe for everyone.
  • Fall allergies: Pets can be affected by seasonal allergies, just like their humans! Watch for signs like sneezing, snorting, or watery eyes. Pets may also be affected by skin allergies. Paws in the City offers a complete selection of supplements that can help alleviate these allergic symptoms, to make pets more comfortable throughout the autumn season.
  • Holiday treats: Autumn brings fun and family gatherings for Halloween and Thanksgiving. While some treats like chocolate and candy are harmful to pets, other treats are actually very healthy. Pumpkin, in particular, is a tasty source of fiber that pets love!
  • Food for energy: As temperatures drop, pets need nutrients to give them energy. It may be tempting to feed them a lot more as winter sets in, but it is best to check with the family veterinarian to be sure the amount is right for the pet.

At Paws in the City, we focus on the nutritional health of Triangle pets. We offer a consultation to help our valued customers select just the right nutritional and holistic foods for their pets. Contact us today or stop by the store to arrange for a nutritional consultation and to see our line of healthy products.

We are open seven days a week and are conveniently located near Harris Teeter in the Tryon Village shopping center.
