Spring Seasonal Tips
Fleas and Allergies
The spring season also means the return of fleas and other parasites. Start by taking preventative measures by giving your dog’s bedding and blankets a good washing. When vacuuming your home, remember to empty and clean your vacuum frequently. Fleas and flea larvae can live and hatch in your vacuum. Tapeworms are contracted by fleas, and roundworms and hookworms are contracted easily too. Outside you can remove excess debris and leaf litter in your back yard. Consider a holistic approach for parasite prevention and treatment or talk to your veterinarian about the best options for you and your dog.
Dogs can acquire seasonal allergies just like we do. Allergies to tree pollen, dust and mold can cause your dog to sneeze, cough and have increased itching. If you suspect that your dog has allergies, contact your veterinarian.
Have a safe and enjoyable spring season!
