As the monsoon sets in it’s important to know what you can do to make sure your dog is taken care of in the best way possible. Here are some dog care tips to tide you over this monsoon.
1. Keep Your Dog Dry this Monsoon
The simplest and most important thing you can do is keep your dog dry this monsoon. Raincoats specially made for dogs are handy. Avoid puddles since this water could be contaminated.
2. Extra care for Dog Paws, Ears and Tummy.
Dogs tend to pick up fungal infections this season. Hence it is important to keep their paws and abdomen areas clean and dry. Watch out for ear infections.
3. Safe Drinking Water
It is recommended that you boil the water you feed your dog. If not, make sure s/he’s drinking what you’re drinking!
5. Regular Dog Grooming
Whether you do it at home or visit a professional make sure your dog is being regularly groomed. This is a great way to keep your dog clean. It is also the best way to nip any infection in the bud.
6. Prevent a Tick and Flea Infestation
This is that time again! Use an anti tick and flea treatment. Make sure you regularly check to see if there is any infestation.
