Dog Parks can be a great place to enjoy the outdoors with your pets, but they do present hazards as well that should be avoided. It helps if you are prepared. Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VPI) recently released a list of the most common claims they see related to dog park injuries including:
- Sprains and Soft Tissue Injuries
- Lacerations and Bite Wounds
- Kennel Cough/Upper Respiratory Infection
- Insect Bites
- Head Trauma
- Hyperthermia or Heat Stroke
We think dog parks are great but be aware of some risks that can happen. If your dog encounters any of these please call your veterinarian at Village Vet Animal Clinic in Broken Arrow.
