Welcome to Spring - the season of renewal, of warmer weather, longer days, flowering trees and shrubs, and bright-coloured pansies!
Spring is also the time when fleas can become problematic, so we have included some helpful information for you to be able to make the right choice for you and your fur baby in dealing with it.
Check out our latest Pet of the Month as well as some more useful tips for canine care!
Warm greetings,

    Flea Control
    By late spring, fleas begin to emerge from their pupae as adults and migrate to the nearest dog or cat for blood meals.
    An adult flea mates shortly after emergence and begins laying eggs within 36 hours. In her brief 50-day lifespan, a single female flea can lay more than 2000 eggs. Fleas are marvellously adapted for survival. The female lays eggs on the host animal, but the eggs fall to the ground, carpet, sofa, dog bed, owner's bed, or easy chair where they hatch in two-to-five days.
      Today's insecticides for pets have made great advancements and a wide array of different compounds have been formulated. Please review this table which describes the active ingredients, methods of use and effects of flea and tick products for dogs and cats to be able to make the right choice for you and your fur baby.

          Top Tip
          To help your furry friend get the most of the spring weather and remain happy and healthy all season long, please keep Keep Them Tagged. 
          The spring season is a great time for getting outside with your pets and exploring your natural surroundings, whether that means your local dog park or simply your back yard. However, more time outside can also mean more chances to wander off for a curious pet sniffing out the new smells of spring.
          Be sure that your dog or cat wears an identification tag complete with your home address, cell phone number and any other contact information that could be helpful if they wander away. 

            Dog Training
            Now that we are enjoying warmer weather swimming is a fantastic activity for dogs of all ages, but is particularly good for older dogs because it is low-impact and easy on their weakening joints and muscles.
            Swimming also builds strength, is good for their overall conditioning, and is naturally relaxing and comforting to most dogs.
