As the pet parents of approximately 77.5 million dogs in the U.S. gear up to get outdoors with their pets this spring and summer, PetSmart would like to remind your readers that with the warm weather, sunshine and time spent outdoors comes a host of health concerns for pets such as dehydration, sunburn and pesky pests like fleas and ticks.
A few of the health concerns every pet and their parents face include:
- Staying hydrated: Dehydration and heatstroke can be fatal to pets, so access to clean drinking water is critical in the spring and summer. Products like an outdoor pet fountain provide a stream of fresh, clean water. While on the go, be sure to bring water for your pet in a suitable drinking container.
- Stopping pests from pestering: With warm weather and sunshine comes a more sinister visitor, the threat of fleas and ticks to your pets and your home. Fleas cause severe itching which can lead to sores if left untreated, and they often carry tapeworms that can be transmitted to your pet. Ticks carry diseases that are dangerous to both pets and humans. A simple monthly preventative treatment like Advantage or K9 Advantix will keep these pests away from pets.
- Keeping sun exposure at a safe level: Just like their parents, dogs can experience sunburn, and even skin cancer, too. To prevent sunburn, apply a sunscreen where hair is thin and skin lacks pigment (nose, ears and sensitive areas) every day your dog is outside.
PetSmart can help with all your outdoor needs by offering products that will keep your pet safe in warmer weather. Just stop by any of their stores or check out PetSmart.com today. Your pet will be glad you did!
