Top Pet Health Tips for Spring

April 25, 2022

It’s springtime! The weather is warm and the outdoors is beautiful! This is definitely no time to stay indoors and Daisy definitely agrees. Now, before exploring the great outdoors for new scents and beautiful sights, it is important to ensure that your pet is protected. This article covers some tips to help. 

Vaccinations!

You need to ensure that your pet is up to date on her yearly deworming and vaccinations. You can easily do this by reviewing the vaccine cards. If you’re not sure or they are still missing some, be sure to pay a visit to the vet. 

Plenty of Exercise 

Dogs are generally an energetic breed, and as a result, require lots of exercise to burn off energy. Playing in the outdoors helps Daisy 

with weight control and effectively reduces boredom, depression, and anxiety as well. The sun also provides vitamin D for your pet. Hikes and dog parks can be fun as well. 

Watch Out for Allergies 

Some dogs have seasonal allergies such as a reaction to ragweed for instance. Be sure to look out for changes in habits and physical appearance. If you think anything is out of place, examine your pet closely and then take them to the vet. 

Flea and Tick Prevention 

While the weather is perfect for Daisy to play, it is also perfect for fleas and ticks to come traipsing about. Preventing an infestation is way easier and better than treating one, so, get to work! 

Use Safe Cleaning Materials!

Spring cleaning is a tradition for many families, and if you would be doing some cleaning, ensure that the materials are dog-friendly. Ensure that it is clearly stated before embarking on your cleanfest. 

Conclusion 

These are some major tips that can help ensure that Daisy stays healthy and has an incredible Spring!
