As our communities grow, we continue to encroach further and further into the natural habitats of many species of wildlife. Coyotes are quickly joining the ranks of squirrels, raccoons, skunks, and other wild animals that have adapted to the ever-expanding human population, making prevention strategies to keep pets safe from coyotes more important now than ever.
Coyotes prey on small mammals and occupy an important place in their natural ecosystems by helping to keep rodent populations down. Coyotes are also opportunistic, and as human homes and businesses encroach on coyote habitat, they will turn to whatever food source is easily available, including garbage and even small pets!
Although winter is still firmly in place in Chicagoland, most of us are looking forward to spring with more than a little excitement. The arrival of warmer weather also signals the arrival of seasonal allergies for many of us, and as temps rise we find ourselves making our annual trip to the drugstore to load up on tissues and allergy meds.
Pets can suffer from seasonal allergies as well, but with different symptoms than in humans. Do you know how to spot seasonal allergies in pets? The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center are here to help you learn the symptoms of allergies so you can help your pet sooner rather than later.
