Beware of Stray Sidewalk Voltage

SIDEWALK VOLTAGE WARNING!!!

Ice melting salts and a wintery mix on the sidewalks create dangerous conditions for you and your pet to receive shocks from stray sidewalk voltage. Please avoid areas where you see Con Ed making repairs. Stray voltage can travel across any wet sidewalk.

However try to steer your pet away from sidewalk scaffolding, lamp posts, manholes and other electrical covers embedded in the sidewalk or roads. If you or your pet receive a shock, please report it immediately to 911.

Recognizing/Treating Dog Heatstroke

If this heat & humidity is tough on us, you can only imagine how unbearable it is on our dogs.

Please check out the attached Heat Stroke info to protect your pet:

I know it’s fun @ the dog run in the summer, but being there too long in the middle of the day, especially for short nosed breeds, can lead to heat stroke (which can be fatal!) & other related health issues.

Our Large Dog Pool, kindly donated by WesPawPets, will arrive this week:)

Please keep SICK dogs out of the run

If your dog has been vomiting, has diarrhea, kennel cough or any other illness please avoid bringing them to the dog run until they are recovered. Same goes for a dog recovering from any kind of surgery.

If your dog looks fine and ends up vomiting, or has diarrhea, w/i the park USE THE HOSE and WASH IT AWAY.

Actually, whenever your dog poops, use the hose and wash away the remnants.

Please use common sense so that illnesses do not spread:)

Thanks
