Spring is a great time of year; the snow melts and flowers bloom. We feel the urge to get up and get moving. So, every spring you tune up the car, clean out the house to do the same for your pet, And make sure that all your pets are fit and healthy this spring
N ow that you’ve made it through the winter you’ll be anxious to get outside with your pet and start your springtime activities. Your pet will appreciate the nice weather too, as he gets to spend more time outdoors. Now that it’s springtime, there are a number of ways on how we can show our love and care for our favorite pets.
Taking Care of Your Pets This Season of spring time
One of the least exciting consequences of the warmer weather is the sudden breeding frenzy among fleas and ticks. Early prevention is one of the best ways to avoid a summer-long battle with these pests, so now is the perfect time to start treating your cat or dog.
Cleaning Up and Home Improvement
Another spring ritual that presents some issues is spring cleaning. Those with household cleaners can be harmful to your pet, just like outdoor chemicals. Use them sparingly and store them where inquisitive pets can’t get to them easily. Follow the instructions on the label to make sure you’re using them correctly. Along with cleaning, home improvement is also popular during this time of year.
Just like people, pets can have allergies too. Pets that are allergic to pollen will have runny noses and will have itching ears and noses. Skin allergies are possible if your pet gets into some deep vegetation. Itchy skin, licking at the base of the tail and paws is signs of allergies and can cause a rash. Your vet can give you recommendations on what to do if your pet needs relief.
The flowering plants of spring look and smell beautiful. They also spell trouble for pets with inhalant allergies. If your pets are allergic to grass, trees, or flower pollen, this is a great time to speak with your veterinarian about preventative measures.
There are many celebrations that take place this time of year that present safety issues. Easter chocolates, fake grass, and decorations can cause poisoning or intestinal tract blockage if ingested. Many people also buy Easter pets such as chicks and baby bunnies. Have a plan of what you’ll do with these animals after the celebration is over. A novelty for a one day celebration may become a hefty commitment.
Outdoor Ready to Go
Pet accessories like collars, harnesses, strollers, toys, and other accessories will also be helpful for your pets during the latter part of spring. They will surely enjoy all these stuffs as they walk down the city streets on a sunny spring day. And you can also enjoy and share a lot of great moments with your pets during this very fine season.
Spring time can be fun and exciting. It’s a great time of year. Pets and their people shed the overcoats of winter and more outdoors. Follow your instincts and enjoy the wonderful weather. Just make sure to pay attention to the needs of your pets. Have a spring tune-up, start exercising gradually, and in a few weeks, everyone will feel fit and healthy.
