Holi, once again, is here. Because it gives people a colorful excuse to be happy and carefree, this celebration of colors is unique. However, this happiness can lead to pain and suffering for your beloved pets.
- Colored chemical
Many of the colors you see on the market contain chemicals such as Zinc, Lead, and Mercury Sulphate. You can let the animal lick the color that has fallen to the ground, or it can lick its own body. Unknowingly, the animal may also consume toxic chemicals.
It would help if you were careful when buying natural colors. The authenticity of many colors found in local markets can be doubted. However, animals should not be exposed to substances that are foreign to their physiology.
- Water Balloon Protects it from a nasty hit.
You would feel the pain if you had ever been hit with a water balloon. A balloon can cause severe injury to your pet’s eyes, in addition to causing pain. The balloon can also be filled with colored water, increasing the pet’s suffering. This should never happen to your pet. If it happens, rinse the pet’s eyes with water. If the irritation persists, consult your veterinarian.
Do you think the damage has been done?
You should be alert if your dog exhibits any symptoms: vomiting, excessive salivation, reduced consciousness, decreased sensibility, loose motion or aggressive behaviors. The symptoms of different toxins will vary.
If vomiting is detected within one hour of the dog’s ingestion, it can be attempted to induce vomiting. If the pet is not responding to your efforts, you should immediately take them to a vet. You can find the source of the poisoning by bringing it to the vet. This would help the vet to apply the corrective procedure to the dog.
Why won’t the dog go out?
You should never deny your dog’s need for exercise and love of going on outings. You can keep your dog safe while maintaining healthy habits by making a few changes to his daily routine. Take the dog out for a walk early in the morning on the festival day. Then, take the dog for a walk in the early hours of the morning. Keep the dog safe and secure until 1 or 2 p.m. because that is when the most exuberant part usually ends.
It is recommended to put a muzzle on your pet if you plan on taking it for a night or night walk on Holi or the next morning. This will prevent accidental licking of colors spread on roads and parks. Ensure your dog is on a leash to prevent sniffing the colors.
