Rainbow Wags February 2023

Happy Pet Dental Health Month!

February is Pet Dental Health Month – a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene for pets. This is a great opportunity for pet owners to focus on their furry friends’ dental health. Poor dental health in pets can lead to a variety of problems, including bad breath, gum disease, and tooth decay. If left untreated, these conditions can cause serious health issues and even shorten a pet’s life.

During Pet Dental Health Month, pet owners are encouraged to take their pets to the vet for a dental check-up and cleaning. Many vets are offering discounts or special screenings to help identify any potential problems early on and allow for prompt treatment. Pet owners can also incorporate daily dental care into their pet’s routine, such as brushing their teeth and providing toys and treats that help keep their teeth and gums healthy.

Pet Dental Health Month is a reminder to pet owners to prioritize their pet’s dental health. Rainbow carries numerous products for dental health, for all kinds of pets, from dogs and cats to hamsters and bunnies. Just ask one of the friendly Rainbow staff about the appropriate dental health products for your pet. By making oral hygiene a priority, we can help our pets live happier, healthier, and longer lives.

Cheerful cheeps – now playing in Rainbow Ag stores! Yes, the chicks are in the buildings (unless they sell out.) Everyone is excited about chickens these days, and who can blame them? Fresh eggs, fewer bugs, and a lot of entertainment. Chickens make great pets! Shipments of new baby chicks are arriving weekly in a variety of breeds, sizes and colors. Want something specific? You can special-order poultry to get exactly what you want – ducks, geese and guinea fowl too!

February is Spay and Neuter Awareness Month.

Spaying and neutering our pets not only helps control the population of stray and unwanted animals, but also provides numerous health benefits for pets. Female pets that are spayed are less likely to develop certain types of cancer and other reproductive diseases, while neutered male pets are less likely to develop testicular cancer and prostate issues. In addition to health benefits, spaying and neutering pets can also improve behavior.

Mendocino and Lake County has several organizations that offer low-cost or subsidized spay and neuter services to help make these procedures more accessible for pet owners. In Mendocino County, contact SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program), and in Lake County the SPCA offers regular Spay/Neuter clinics with free options for feral or community cats. Donations are always welcome!

Our local shelters are at capacity! Check out some of the wonderful adoptable dogs and cats at the Mobile Adoption Event happening Saturday, March 4th at the Ukiah Rainbow store. Watch for more information on Rainbow’s Facebook page, or contact organizer, Nydia Flores (707) 376-5468 for more information.
