6 Tips to take care of your dog in the rain season
Monsoon brings a lot of fun for both pets and pet parents. Everyone loves that smell of freshness in the air and wants to enjoy the rain. We should enjoy it but when it comes to our furry friends we should be aware of rain because the rainy season is ideal for skin infections, ticks, and many other diseases.
We are providing tips and hacks so you don't have to worry about your pet's health.
1. Keep their fur dry-
Dry your dog's hair with a dry towel two times a day whenever it comes home after morning and evening walks or playtime. Keeping their hairs wet may cause bacterial and fungal infection because during rain season moisture in the atmosphere increase and so does the chances of infection also increase. You can also use waterless dog shampoo to keep their fur healthy and apart from this, you can also give them any good hair care supplement.
2. Keep Paws Dry-
Their paws are the most important things to be protected because they come in direct contact with the dirt and hence the bacteria and viruses also come in contact with the dirt. You can use any good-quality shoes to protect your paws during outdoor walks. If your dog is not comfortable with shoes then wash their paws with warm water and dry them with a towel
3. Keep ears cleaned-
Rain increase moisture in dogs' ear so cleans your dog's ear at least twice a week to protect them from getting an ear infection. If you feel anything unusual then contact a vet immediately.
4. Provide a Fiber-Rich diet-
During rain time we are not able to take them for a long walk like we usually do. Providing fiber-rich fruits and vegetables will balance that situation well and will avoid the problem of obesity in our dogs. You can engage them in indoor activities like going up and down stairs, playing fetch the ball in the hall, or similar activities to keep their gut movement healthy and well.
5. Check Ticks and Fleas-
Rain season is the ideal time for ticks and fleas breeding, Most dogs have ticks and fleas during monsoon so always keep checking under their body hair if they are scratching a particular body part too much. You can use an anti ticks shampoo also. If the issue of ticks and fleas is lasting longer then consult a vet immediately because in the long term they can destroy your dog's health in a drastic way.
6. Deworm and Vaccinate-
This is the most crucial part of a dog's health. Always keep your pet vaccinated and deworm. By vaccination and deworming you can protect your pet from a lot of diseases. Check our doorstep vaccination plans- Pet Vaccination Plans
