Spring Preparation for your Pet

Spring Preparation for your Pet

Spring is coming!

Even though it is currently snowing, spring is in fact around the corner! Only in Maryland can it be 70 degrees yesterday and snowy weather today! And that means one thing, spring showers bring May flowers! With that being said, here are a few reminders to get your pets ready for the warmer spring weather:

-Double check to make sure your pooch is getting his flea and tick- We love Nexguard. This is a chewable tablet that you can give to your pup once a month. It is more convenient than doing the liquid Frontline. Our pup, Kooper, did NOT like getting Frontline. It was a stressful time when his due date would come every month so we were Happy Dog Parents when we found out about Nexguard. Talk to your vet to see if it would be a good option for your pets.

– Check your pets microchip information to make sure information is up to date. If your pet does not have a microchip, this is the perfect time to get them one. This is an effective ID resource .

– Pay attention to your pet to see if they are licking, scratching or shaking the head – Our girl Dee has the worst allergies in the spring. She is always trying to lick her paws.

– On those rainy days don’t forget to leave a towel out for us so we can clean up your pups muddy paws

– Get outside- enjoy the longer days. Daylight Savings is Sunday and is the perfect start to longer walks with our buddies. It can be the start of your pups walking off those extra winter pounds!

Since spring is around the corner that also means Spring Break! Planning a getaway? Remember to reach out to your pet sitter if you can’t take yours with you. Pet sitters can provide your pet with the individualized love and care while you are away!

 

About Courtney Boyle-Anderson

After graduating from college with a psychology degree in 2011, I was excited to start my career. I searched long and hard for a job within my field but quickly found out I needed a masters to pursue many of the jobs that were available. Within a few months I began working for a benefits enrollment company and soon moved to a small accounting firm. While the people were fantastic, I soon realized the cubicle life wasn't for me.
