1st Annual Pet SwapYou are invited to our 1st Annual Pet Swap at Kissimmee Valley Feed Store #2, located at 215 13th Street on July 13th from 9AM-12PM. This is an indoor event and completely free to attend. You may buy, sell, or trade animals. We are excited to host this event and see new relationships form! We are providing tables for your convenience.

The event is open to all breeds, species, or genders. If you are currently not in a position to house a pet any longer, we encourage you to bring any critters that you would like to find a re-home for. So many customers are anxiously awaiting to find their perfect match. Also, this is a great opportunity for anyone who is looking for a new companion, willing to adopt a new friend, or become a pet parent for the first time. The possibilities are endless! Not sure if you’re ready? You still have time to think it over or prepare a space in your home.

Remember to provide a carrier that’s comfortable for your pet. Packing their leashes and collars will help the day run more smoothly. All reptiles or amphibians must be in a container with a lid. Also, all transactions are based on the seller so come prepared with different payment methods.

Not sure what to expect? Stop by to see for yourself what all the excitement is about on Saturday! If you plan to attend this event, please RSVP by calling us at 407-892-4040 or signing up below.

We hope to see you at our 1st Annual Pet Swap!

Thank you, Russell Johnson

I would like to publically announce (sad) news for Kissimmee Valley Feed. Our longtime store manager, Russell Johnson, is leaving us. I know, it was a shock to me. This is a life-changing decision for him. He is taking a new position with the University of Central Florida at the new NeoCity Business Incubator and returning to the semiconductor manufacturing industry.

Russell started with Kissimmee Valley Feed on November 28, 2005. His warm personality, attention to detail, trustworthiness, and his analytical mind has helped us grow in tremendous ways. He has guided countless young men and women that have worked for us over the years into capable adults. He has shown an example of what it really means to be a hardworking and dependable employee. Russell has always had a line of customers ready for a hand-shake greeting or children running to the back office for a high five. Even our four-legged friends love to see him! Their tails would wag so much I thought they would fall over. It will not be the same without him.

He surely has left a positive impact on our community, staff members, and our stores as a whole. I want to thank Russell for his dedication and loyalty. It has been an honor to work with him and he will be missed. I thank him for the years of work at Kissimmee Valley Feed!

Sincerely,

Stan Touchstone

Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips

Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips

For many people, nothing beats lounging in the backyard on the Fourth of July with good friends and family—including furry friends. While it may seem like a great idea to reward your pet with scraps from the grill and bring him along to watch fireworks, in reality, some festive foods and activities can be potentially hazardous to him. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center offers the following tips:

Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips

Never leave alcoholic drinks unattended where pets can reach them. Alcoholic beverages have the potential to poison pets. If ingested, the animal could become very intoxicated and weak, severely depressed or could go into a coma. Death from respiratory failure is also a possibility in severe cases.

Do not apply any sunscreen or insect repellent product to your pet that is not labeled specifically for use on animals. Ingestion of sunscreen products can result in drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy. The misuse of insect repellent that contains DEET can lead to neurological problems.

Always keep matches and lighter fluid out of your pets’ reach. Certain types of matches contain chlorates, which could potentially damage blood cells and result in difficulty breathing—or even kidney disease in severe cases. Lighter fluid can be irritating to the skin, and if ingested can produce gastrointestinal irritation and central nervous system depression. If lighter fluid is inhaled, aspiration pneumonia and breathing problems could develop.

Keep your pets on their normal diet. Any change, even for one meal, can give your pet severe indigestion and diarrhea. This is particularly true for older animals who have more delicate digestive systems and nutritional requirements. And keep in mind that foods such as onions, chocolate, coffee, avocado, grapes, raisins, salt, and yeast dough can all be potentially toxic to companion animals.

Do not put glow jewelry on your pets, or allow them to play with it. While the luminescent substance contained in these products is not highly toxic, excessive drooling and gastrointestinal irritation could still result from ingestions, and intestinal blockage could occur from swallowing large pieces of the plastic containers.

Keep citronella candles, insect coils, and tiki torch oil products out of reach. Ingestion can produce stomach irritation and possibly even central nervous system depression. If inhaled, the oils could cause aspiration pneumonia in pets.

Never use fireworks around pets! While exposure to lit fireworks can potentially result in severe burns and/or trauma to the face and paws of curious pets, even unused fireworks can pose a danger. Many types contain potentially toxic substances, including potassium nitrate, arsenic, and other heavy metals.

Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets, who can become frightened or disoriented by the sound. Please resist the urge to take them to Independence Day festivities, and opt instead to keep them safe from the noise in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area at home.

Be prepared in the event that your pet does escape by keeping your pets’ IDs up to date! It’s a good idea for all your animal companions—even indoor-only pets—to always wear a collar with an ID tag that includes your name, current phone number, and any relevant contact information. July 1 is National ID Your Pet Day, which serves as an annual check-in to make sure your pets’ identification tags and microchip information is up to date.

Independence Day Fun Facts:

Variously known as the Fourth of July and Independence Day, July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with typical festivities ranging from fireworks, parades, and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.
