Spring Safety Tips
Not only can these insects be uncomfortable to your pets but they can also cause serious diseases. To prevent that, check your pets for ticks and any other parasites daily. If they have long fur, brush through it regularly as some insects will fall out this way. Additionally, you can put an anti-tick collar on your pet.
Symptoms usually occur during spring and can cause a vicious circle of scratching and biting their own body which can then irritate the skin and leave bald spots in their fur. If the veterinarian has prescribed any medication for your pet make sure you always have them on hand. Be aware that there's no one size fits all remedy as pets respond differently to different allergens.
Watch out for specific kinds of plants that are toxic to your pets. These include lilies, tulips, and castor beans. When consumed symptoms such as vomiting or breathing difficulties occur. If your pet does accidentally eat one of these plants, see a vet immediately.
