How to Welcome a Pet-Friendly Spring


Although warm spring weather may feel perfect, you still have to take precautions with your pet just like you would in the winter and summer months.  Here are a few tips to help you celebrate a pet-friendly spring season.

Spring Pet Care Tips:

  • Maintain Their Coat – It’s okay to let your pet have a shaggier coat during the winter, but as temperatures start to rise in the spring, it’s important to maintain their coats so that they don’t overheat.
  • Care for Their Paws – As the ice begins to melt, chemicals can puddle in the roads.  When walking outside, make sure that your pet doesn’t stop to drink from any puddles.
  • Keep An Eye On Allergies – Suffer from springtime allergies?  Your pet may suffer too.  Look for itching, coughing, sneezing, flaky skin or an oily-feeling coat.  If you think that your pet is suffering from allergies, contact our office.
  • Beware of Spring Bulbs – Before you begin spring gardening, be aware of what you are putting in the dirt.  Certain flower bulbs like tulips, and hyacinths can be toxic to pets if ingested.
