My dog enjoyed the warm weather today at lunchtime. I let my dog outside and instead of finding her waiting on me to let her in I had to call her to come in. Once she came in she would not stop panting from running around the back yard. This was yet another reminder today that spring is right around the corner. Dogester.com released this article http://www.dogster.com/dog-health-care/spring-safety-tips-for-dogs about springtime safety for our dogs. Here are just a few key points:
- Exercise – it is normal for dogs to store fat in winter, this just means exercise needs to begin slowly and gently
- Allergies – Dogs get allergies too, if your dog’s allergies get too bad contact your vet for allergy medicine made specifically for your dog.
- Toxic Plants and Mulch – Keep your dog out of the flower bed and nobody will get hurt
- Lawn Chemicals – Keep an eye out for “pesticide treated” signs
