Things that happen in Spring!

This is one really common problem that us vets see every single spring..and it's already started. You open your windows to let in the spring air and your pets cozy up to the window to catch a deep breath. Just a couple of wiggles and pushes and BOOM...the screen has fallen out and your beloved pet has escaped (or worse).

Here is an example of a cat named B.C. (or "Big Chicken"). His owner opened the windows on a nice spring day. B.C. LOVES the fresh air. He leaned right up against them and was out before his owner even realized what had happened. 

Depending on where and how a cat falls, a few things can happen.

1. Highrise syndrome - this is a complex group of injuries that can occur from a fall and vary in seriousness depending on the height a cat falls from.

2. Abrasions and soft tissue injuries - anything from major to minor injuries can occur.

3. Cats can get lost. The vast majority of cats that get out and get lost have no form of identification. Make sure they have some form of identification, whether it's a microchip or an updated ID tag.

So....if you open your windows this spring, PLEASE make sure the screens are secure.
