Pet Safety Awareness With Emblem the Wellness Dog

Say “Hello” to Emblem the Wellness Dog, our company mascot! He is here to help you stay healthy, get well and live better by offering tips, resources and support (and unconditional cuteness). He loves having fun and helping his friends achieve their nutrition, fitness and wellness goals. For Pet Safety Awareness Month, Emblem is sharing some tips to make sure your furry friend stays healthy!

  1. Be prepared. Put together a kit with all the essentials, including gauze, non-stick bandages, hydrogen peroxide, a digital thermometer and contact information for your vet and local animal hospital.
  1. Know what your pets shouldn’t eat. Emblem the Wellness Dog loves snacking, but make sure to keep your pup away from onions, chocolate, garlic and avocado. When in doubt, call the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ (ASPCA) Poison Control line at 1-888-426-4435.
  1. Recognize the signs of heat stroke and keep your pet hydrated. Symptoms of heat stroke include heavy panting, glazed eyes and a dark or bright red tongue.
