As the winter chill subsides and Spring arrives, the warmer temperatures find us spending more time outdoors. Our pets love the warmer weather, too, and enjoy spending more time outdoors as well. There are some potential hazards to monitor to be sure that your pet has a safe and healthy Spring.
If you have missed any monthly heartworm prevention, schedule a heartworm test to resume the monthly medication. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes and 1 to 2 warm days will bring out these little monsters.
Ticks and fleas are also having a population burst with the warmer weather. Topical tick control products are needed monthly to prevent tick-transmitted diseases. Avoiding high grass and examining your pets after a hike in the woods will help you identify and remove any ticks before they attach. Use a tick-removal tool to detach them and avoid contact with your skin. If you are having a problem with ticks on your dog, please discuss the Lyme vaccine with us to see if your dog would benefit.
Flea control is also needed. Both topical medication and oral flea products are now available that can help you prevent or treat infestation. BE SURE TO USE ONLY PRODUCTS THAT ARE LABELED SAFE FOR CATS on your feline friends because may dog flea products are very toxic to cats.
Many pet owners notice their dog or cat eating grass in the spring- the fresh new growth seems to be very tasty . Eating grass does not indicate that your pet is feeling sick; however, vomiting can occur if too much grass is swallowed. Also try to prevent your dog or cat from chewing on ornamental plants in the yard. Many of our outdoor plants cause digestive upset, and some can cause serious organ damage if chewed or swallowed. Often your pet can be distracted from chewing or digging outside by rotating a variety of safe toys in the yard.
At White Oak Animal Hospital, we keep up to date with all of the latest advances in medication and veterinary techniques so we can provide the highest possible quality of care for your pet. Please click each product for more information.
