Hello, pet parents! As we welcome the beautiful month of May, it’s a great time to focus on the health and well-being of our furry friends. At Dunloggin Veterinary Hospital, we’re here to share some essential tips to ensure your pets enjoy this delightful season as much as you do.
- Springtime Allergies: Just like humans, pets can suffer from seasonal allergies too. Look out for symptoms like excessive scratching, sneezing, or watery eyes. If you notice any of these signs, consult with our team at Dunloggin Veterinary Hospital for appropriate treatment options.
- Flea and Tick Prevention: May marks the start of flea and tick season. Be sure to keep your pet on a regular flea and tick prevention regimen. Talk to our veterinarians about the best prevention methods suited for your pet’s needs.
- Grooming and Shedding: As the weather warms up, your pets may start shedding their winter coats. Regular grooming helps remove loose fur and keeps your pet’s coat healthy. Schedule a grooming appointment at our facility or ask our team for recommendations on at-home grooming tools.
- Hydration and Exercise: Ensure your pets have access to fresh water at all times, especially when spending time outdoors. As temperatures rise, it’s essential to keep an eye on your pet’s activity levels and make sure they don’t overexert themselves in the heat.
- Pet Safety in Cars: Never leave your pet in a parked car, even for a short time. Temperatures inside a vehicle can rise rapidly, putting your pet’s life in danger.
- Regular Check-ups: Lastly, don’t forget to schedule a regular wellness check-up for your pet. Routine exams help us monitor your pet’s overall health and address any potential issues before they become severe.
At Dunloggin Veterinary Hospital, we’re committed to helping you and your pets enjoy a happy and healthy spring. If you have any concerns or need assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team.
