WINTER PET CARE TIPS FROM HOLLYWOOD FEED
 
Each winter, Hollywood Feed takes the opportunity to remind pet owners of important pet care tips, particularly during the cold weather.

Important winter pet care tips to keep in mind include:
  • Keep pets warm. It is important to know your pet’s limits when it comes to outside exposure. Some breeds do very well in the cold temperatures but still need to be kept inside when not on walks or outdoor breaks.  Other breeds should not be left out in the cold for long periods of time. One simple rule of thumb to follow is if it’s too cold for you, it’s most likely too cold for your pet as well. Hollywood Feed offers a variety of pet clothes and accessories to keep your pets warm during the cold winter months.
  • Keep up with flea and tick control. If prevention is put off during the winter, pets could contract tick borne diseases or become infested with fleas. If this occurs it can be far more costly to treat for an infection or infestation than to take preventative measures at the beginning of the season.
  • Keep all prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs out of the reach of animals. During cold and flu season, many people have medications lying around. Human medications can be harmful and dangerous to pets. Do not medicate your animal yourself unless under the direction of a veterinarian.
“Providing optimal care for pets is central to everything we do year-round,” says Shawn McGhee, president of Hollywood Feed. “Winter offers us a unique opportunity to bring seasonal reminders to our customers so that they can keep their beloved pets warm, healthy and safe.”
 
In order to keep pet owners informed during this time of social distancing, Hollywood Feed recently launched Hollywood Feed University, an online pet wellness education resource for pet owners and pet professionals. Virtual classes are currently available free of charge on topics including pet nutrition, physical and emotional wellbeing, behavioral issues, training techniques and more. All courses are made available regularly at https://hfu.hollywoodfeed.com/. The next course, entitled Surviving K9 Adolescence, will be held on February 4th.
 
As an essential business, Hollywood Feed continues to work diligently to keep its 105+ locations clean and properly sanitized. This includes frequent and thorough cleaning with Registered Antimicrobial Products for Use Against Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19.
