With summer just around the corner, now's the best time to start getting your pet ready for the warmer months. Proper preparation will help keep your pet healthy and safe.
Here are our top tips:
GET UP TO DATE WITH VACCINATIONS
If your pet is boarding over the summer holidays appropriate vaccinations must be up to date. Boarding facilities might turn your pet away if they are not. Ask your Vet to check if your pet is due for any vaccinations and for a copy of your pets vaccination certificate if needed.
The warmer months bring about pesky parasites. Fleas, mosquitoes (that can carry deadly Heartworm), biting flies and potentially deadly paralysis ticks love the warmer weather. Now's the time to get your prevention regime sorted. Prevention is easier (and always cheaper) than treatment. PET GUARDIANS has a great variety of different preventions at some of the lowest prices around!
GET A HAIRCUT
Dog groomers book out quickly over the warmer months so you should arrange grooming appointments now. Keeping your dog's coat shorter over summer will help keep your dog cooler and more comfortable and help reduce grass seed problems. Furthermore, should your dog get a tick you will be able to see it more easily if you keep that coat short!
Now that your pet is all ready to go, let's look forward to a fun Summer with our furry friends!
