 It's Spring and that means many many MANY things for your little pooch.   So I wanted to put together a brief blog post with some Spring tips!  From ticks to bad breath... let's get it started!

1. Treat Your Dog for Fleas and Ticks
This is a very very very important thing year round but espeically during the nicer months where your dog is outside more.   Whether it's a flea and tick treatment, a collar, or putting your dog in a bubble, I don't care - just make sure you are safeguarding your pooch!

2. Allergies
Allergies are a very real thing even for dogs.   Mine have been sneezing more after they hang out on the screened in porch.  So I make sure I'm vacuuming very often, keeping the house dust free, and on days when the pollen count is super high, I make sure to keep Rocky inside as much as possible since he has a heart issue.

3. Oral Hygiene
So this is the perfect time of year to keep your pup's oral hygiene in tip top shape because there's going to be a lot of panting with the warmer weather.   I always advise dog owners to brush their dog's teeth at least once a week and in between, make sure you supply them with a fun treat like Greenies from Chewy. They are the perfect size for a variety of dogs and they not only keep dogs occupied but they   help fight plaque and tartar build up and they freshen breath.  It's also a great way to maintain healthier teeth and gums.   They come in a lovely mint flavor and are made from soluble natural ingredients.

4. Water
Make sure your pooch is always provided fresh drinking wter especially on hot days or when coming in from playing in the yard.   Dehydration is a serious thing for both people and pets.

5. Vaccines
If you're one of those people that brings your dog to the park a lot, make sure they are up to date on the vaccines and they are properly registered with their tags.   Anytime dogs are around other dogs, there's the potential for a transfer of germs, fleas, ticks, and more.
