Summer is arriving and let the outdoor fun begin!!! With summer comes the increased threat of fleas and ticks, mosquito bites, sunburn and heat stroke. Latest research shows that Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever can be transmitted by a tick that has been biting in as little as TEN MINUTES! Fleas can not only be a nuisance to your pet, but also can carry blood borne diseases! Mosquitos love to come inside your house and will bite indoor only pets, so heartworms are a threat for all dogs and cats. Fair skinned pets can get sunburn just like people.
www.mydosnoseit.com is a sunscreen available for pets that is safe.
www.hedzuppets.com sells a watercollar to help pets keep their head above water (instead of a life jacket). Having a floatation device for boating dogs, older pets that may tire or even dogs that aren't strong swimmers is a great precaution!
